USC men’s basketball denied regular-season Pac-12 title

USC will have to wait another year to break its drought of regular-season conference titles.

Flames are the latest NHL team to call for Darryl Sutter’s unique intervention

The Calgary Flames hired Darryl Sutter as their head coach Thursday night, and on Friday a talk-show host congratulated him. “Thanks, John,” Sutter said. “Now I won’t be able to listen to you on the tractor while I’m feeding the cows.” This was reminiscent of Dec. 19, 2011, when the Kings tried to rescue a drowning season and hired Sutter. At the press conference, someone asked Sutter what he was doing when the Kings called. “Well, I wasn’t shoveling (manure), I can tell you that,” Sutter replie...

Ducks grind their way through to end their 9-game winless streak

If the Ducks were mired in a nine-game winless skid in past seasons they could have eased the tension by going to dinner together, dropping the bill in the laps of their rookies.

SURPRISE, Ariz. — No one yet has found a way to turn back the hands of time. The Dodgers’ 33-year-old closer Kenley Jansen has certainly tried the past few years. The velocity and movement on Jansen’s essential cut fastball has been on a slow decline each of the past four seasons – from a 93.6 mph average in 2016 to 93.3 in 2017 to 92.3 mph in 2018 to 92.0 mph in 2019 to a bounceback 92.4 mph in 2020.
