LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA guard Darren Collison was briefly hospitalized because of food poisoning after the fifth-ranked Bruins' weekend road trip to the Bay Area.
Collison fell ill Sunday night and visited a hospital near his family's home in Rancho Cucamonga where he was given fluids and an IV, coach Ben Howland said Tuesday.
``I assume it was something he ate after the trip,'' Howland said.
Collison, a preseason All-American, didn't practice Tuesday. The team didn't practice Sunday or Monday.
The Bruins (14-1, 2-0 Pac-10) host Washington (9-5, 0-1) on Thursday night.
Collison missed the first six games of the season with a sprained left knee. He is averaging 12.4 points per game, third on the team, and 4.0 assists.
