Clippers’ Landry Shamet is more than a shooter – but he gets the point

Wichita State didn’t make this year’s NCAA Tournament for the first time in seven years, but Shockers fans should be able to tune into Clippers games in the coming weeks to see a point guard of theirs play on. In Wichita, that’s how they think of Landry Shamet, the Clippers’ sharp new starting shooting guard – more as a point guard than as purely a long-distance sniper. In his two years at Wichita State, Shamet’s 288 career assists are the second most in school history through two seasons, and h...

Boston’s Mookie Betts says he expects to become free agent

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Don’t expect AL MVP Mookie Betts to agree to a long-term contract with the Boston Red Sox before he can become a free agent in late 2020. Despite Mike Trout’s pending $432 million, 12-year agreement with the Los Angeles Angels, Nolan Arenado’s $260 million, eight-year deal with the Colorado Rockies […]

How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

Defending World Series champion Red Sox on repeat for 2018

BOSTON (AP) — Somehow, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora looked at Mookie Betts’ MVP season and saw room for improvement. Not the .346 batting average that was the highest in the major leagues. Not the career-high 32 homers, either. But Betts drove in just 80 runs last year while spending almost all of his […]

Bruins’ Marchand Thriving Without Gimmicks

Whether you love him or hate him, everybody has something to say about Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand. While some of his on-ice antics may give a bad impression, his play is making it more difficult to deny that the 30-year-old forward is among the NHL’s most elite players. His 87 points put him first in scoring on the Bruins and also marks a new career high with 10 games still remaining this season. With significant injuries to both Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak this season, Marchand...

MLB preview: Projecting AL East

In 2018, the American League East provided Word Series champions the Boston Red Sox, a second 100-win team in the New York Yankees, AL MVP Mookie Betts and AL CY Young winner Blake Snell of the Tampa Bay Rays. The calendar may have flipped, but it is likely to be more of the same as storylines will not be hard to find from this division in 2019.

On Mar. 18, 1945, in the final game of the 1944-45 season, Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard of the Montreal Canadiens becomes the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in one season.

76ers’ Embiid hates the Celtics, now he needs to beat them

Yes, Joel Embiid hates the Celtics. He hates Boston so much that he got fined […]

Maple Leafs Learn Valuable Lesson

Trailing 5-2 in the latter stages of the second period to the Philadelphia Flyers, the Toronto Maple Leafs looked destined for a third straight home loss Friday night. Then, something changed. Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin notched two goals in quick succession, cutting the deficit to 5-4 heading into the intermission. Although neither goal will make the “plays of the week,” they were the turning point of the game. During the second intermission, Muzzin shared some words of wisdom with TSN’s Mark ...

How to keep low-income families in Los Angeles

The battle over affordable housing in California might get ugly before things get better.
