UCLA football blows lead, then can’t finish in double overtime loss to Stanford

PASADENA >> UCLA scored 31 unanswered points to fuel a second half rally that gave the Bruins a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, but Stanford came back to tie and force overtime, and then the Cardinal hung on for a 48-47 double-overtime victory in the Pac-12 finale for both teams at the Rose Bowl on Saturday after the Bruins’ do-or-die game-winning two-point conversion came up short. Running back Brittain Brown set career-highs with 219 rushing yards on 29 carries, but on his final play of t...

Shades of 2003 as Newsom comes under increasing scrutiny

“I don’t like this,” then-Governor Gray Davis told NBC’s Today show, “It’s bad for democracy.” The year was 2003 and Davis was fighting with the people of California to keep his job. Even though it was less than a year since he had won re-election, voters had signed recall petitions with a speed and intensity that shocked political observers. Time magazine wondered why Californians would spend $60 million to recall a governor “who has not committed any malfeasance and whose major sin was hiding ...

Whicker: Ohio State shows UCLA what last March could have been, and what this March might demand

UCLA ventured into the land of the big biceps Saturday, the rib-cracking screens, the battles for every inch of hardwood. It thought it was ready for that land last year, when it won 11 of its final 14 games and stormed into the NCAA’s theoretical brackets. In that scenario the Bruins might well have played Ohio State in a first-weekend game. The virus intervened, but they got their chance, in Cleveland, to show they belong in that league. They did that, but then they learned that  belonging is ...

LeBron James, Lakers see a path to becoming dominant

After the fourth and final win of the preseason on Friday night, the Lakers trotted out some familiar refrains about their conditioning. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope admitted he had gotten “winded.” LeBron James of the Lakers: “Obviously we’re not where we want to be long-term.” Coach Frank Vogel said he thought the Lakers were “a step slow” in the first half, and that it would be a challenge throughout the early part of the season. And yet. The results of the preseason mean little, but in going 4-0...

Clippers want Luke Kennard to be more aggressive

Asked to contemplate whether the NBA has changed much between now and his head-coaching tenure in Cleveland, new Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said no, everyone’s still in love with the 3-pointer. “Still the 3-ball is the most important thing in the game right now,” said Lue, whose Cavaliers teams were among the NBA’s top five in 3-point attempts in each of his three seasons. Considering as much, it’s crucial that a particular member of the Clippers get going. And he knows it. Last month, the Clippe...

For you, tough guy, wearing a mask is too much to ask

The high in Houston Monday during the weather-delayed final round of the United States Open was 49 degrees. The young Korean golfer A Lim Kim wore a heavy down parka as she walked the fairways in between shots, doffing it whenever she addressed the ball. But during the entire round, the one thing she never took off was her coronavirus mask. Not once. And Kim, formerly ranked about 60th in the world, won the U.S. Open that cold, dark day, one of the premier athletic events of any year, on the str...
