Why You Should Change Your Plans: Jordan Chiles and Jade Carey, the current world champions and U.S. Olympic teammates, will face off against each other in a Pac-12 conference dual. While those two may carry a meet on their own with their all-around competition, Bruin freshman Selena Harris, who is the highest-ranked all-arounder on either team and is third in the NCAA, will undoubtedly be in the mix.
UCLA has exceeded expectations thus far this season despite only competing on the road, and its home opener presents a fantastic opportunity to post another high total and secure a crucial conference victory. This is an important outcome for the Beavers as well in their conference opener as Oregon State defeated the Bruins last year in the Pac-12 regular season standings and qualified to play in the evening session of the conference championship.

UCLA just defeated Washington 196.900-195.825; a week earlier, the Bruins defeated Minnesota, Boise State, and Washington to win the Wasatch Classic.
Jordan Chiles won first place in uneven bars and tied for first place in floor against Washington, while freshman Selena Harris, the top recruit in her class, took first place in the all-around in both contests.
The Bruins’ result in their matchup with Washington was their worst of the year. McDonald and the coaching staff are making essential lineup adjustments as a result of minor illnesses and ailments that have influenced who is healthy enough to perform on a daily basis.
As many competitors as possible must be prepared to compete, according to McDonald. The coaching staff should then pick who is the most prepared to play that day and to offer us the best chance of winning.
Malabuyo, who had a 10.0 last year on balance beam, could help UCLA this week. The 2020 Olympic Team alternate is recovering after a 9.775 beam score against the Huskies last week while also fending off a cold.
