UCLA men’s basketball looks to offense to recapture Pac-12 success

LOS ANGELES — Murry Bartow wasn’t brought in to solve UCLA’s offense. The first-year-assistant-turned-interim-head-coach was hired as a de facto defensive coordinator, but on Tuesday, Bartow stood in the corner of the practice court in Mo Ostin Center and fielded questions on a turnover-prone offense and his trapping defenses alike. One proved particularly daunting. “When you look at your offense,” a reporter asked, “what does it need to be more efficient?” “Whew,” Bartow sighed. “How long do I ...

Predators’ Laviolette Wins 600th Game

On Jan. 21, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette won his 600th regular-season game in the National Hockey League. It was also his 211th victory in his 379th game as head coach of the Predators. In a league that has been, and remains, filled with quality head coaches, one might think that winning 600 regular season games is common. That thought would be incorrect. With his 600th win, Peter Laviolette joined an exclusive coaching club. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski) Reaching the 600-win ...

Bruins Don’t Need Spooner Reunion

With news of Ryan Spooner being placed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers on Monday once again reminding the hockey world that Peter Chiarelli should stop making one-for-one trades, it’s also led to questions regarding Spooner’s future. While a reunion with the Boston Bruins is a logical talking point given the fact that he was drafted by the team and spent the first five-plus seasons of his career in Boston, it would not be a good idea for general manager Don Sweeney to put in a waiver claim. Wh...

USC women’s basketball holds off late UCLA rally to notch season’s first conference win

LOS ANGELES — USC already gave up one double-digit lead to UCLA this year. The Trojans wouldn’t do it again. The USC women’s basketball team held off a late comeback attempt from UCLA on Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak in the crosstown rivalry with a 72-67 win at Pauley Pavilion.

UCLA, USC women square off again after tough Pac-12 start

LOS ANGELES — UCLA’s scout team can’t change out of the cardinal-and-gold practice jerseys fast enough. Immediately after practice Tuesday, they shuffle out of the women’s basketball practice gym as players and coaches gather at center court. “You look appropriately terrible in those shirts,” head coach Cori Close called out.

Who The Boston Bruins May Target At The Trade Deadline

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, While some Bruins fans might dream of the stars shipping Tyler Seguin back to the Hub, that’s not happening. But don’t rule out Sweeney and Gorton again swapping assets, as they did this time a year ago and then again on the eve of the new season when Adam McQuaid went down the Amtrak rails for Steven Kampfer. All but assured they’ll miss the playoffs, the Rangers, in Boston Saturday with a 20-20-7 mark, likely will be active traders, which ...

Maple Leafs’ Return If They Move Johnsson or Kapanen

On Jan. 17, Jim Parsons’ rumors report cited Bob McKenzie’s belief that the Toronto Maple Leafs would consider trading Andreas Johnsson or Kasperi Kapanen in the right deal. McKenzie was clear that the Maple Leafs needed a good defenseman, and noted during a segment of First Up on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto: “If you’re gonna get a good defenseman, and they obviously want to get a good defenseman, you’ve got to give up something of value. And not only would the first-round pick be in play, but ...

Bruins Need Pivotal Piece to Become Cup Contenders

The Boston Bruins’ 2018-19 season has been a rollercoaster, and we haven’t even made it to the All-Star break. It started with a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on opening night that left those in Boston dumbfounded. They followed this up with four wins, however, immediately proving the naysayers wrong. There was one issue: the Bruins were relying heavily upon their top-line trio of David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. This was quickly targeted by the opposition, and the...

Bruins’ Rask & Halak Trending in Opposite Directions

Don’t look now but the Boston Bruins appear to have a clear-cut No. 1 goaltender and it isn’t Jaroslav Halak. While Halak has been solid in his first season with the Bruins and has compiled a record of 13-8-2 with the NHL’s fifth-highest goals-against average at 2.46 and ninth-best save percentage of .920, he’s lost momentum as of late. Fortunately for the Bruins, however, Rask has finally found his stride and has established himself as the most reliable option in net for the Bruins over the pas...
