One sad day doesn’t change the solid foundation these Huskies have built

Two years ago, the idea of Washington making it to the second round of the NCAA tournament was far-fetched if not outright absurd. Same with it running away with the Pac-12 title or winning 15 straight games at home.

Just Hop being Hop: Huskies coach Mike Hopkins is as loving as he is bizarre

The second year coach is as likely to plant a kiss on a player's forehead as he is to punt a basketball. It's a strange approach, but it's working.

March Madness 2019: UC Irvine dubs assistant as its own ‘Sister Jean’

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — When UC Irvine made the NCAA Tournament, coach Russell Turner believed his team had many of the same ingredients that fueled Loyola of Chicago’s surprising run to the Final Four last year. The Anteaters had an experienced team with a gaudy record but was missing only one ingredient: the good luck charm that provided inspiration for the Ramblers. With no elderly nun with an engaging personality hanging around at a public school like UC Irvine, Turner got creative. “They ha...

USC QB JT Daniels looking to lead more as a sophomore

LOS ANGELES — As JT Daniels fielded questions from reporters during the first week of spring practice earlier this month, he reflected on an area of development for this offseason. Daniels pointed to leadership. “Being more vocal,” Daniels said. “Not necessarily being a vocal rah-rah guy, but I think going into my second year, I have the role to step up more.” The challenge was unusually difficult last season.

UCLA tops Tennessee in NCAA Women’s Tournament opener

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — The lead was blown. A 17-point advantage evaporated in a flash. UCLA could no longer afford comfort, as the goliath that has been Tennessee women’s basketball lurked. But this sixth-seeded UCLA team would not cower Saturday. Not after a 3-5 start, and certainly not in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Sophomore guard Michaela Onyenwere corralled an offensive rebound and put it back in to give the Bruins a 72-70 lead with 3:34 remaining. A Kennedy Burke steal led to anot...

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Just 12.9 seconds remained on the clock in UCLA’s women’s basketball game at No. 16 Arizona State.

Making Morant: Shooting Js, pumping iron, studying film

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Murray State coaches knew they had something special with Ja Morant as a freshman. The athleticism, ball handling and court vision were exceptionally rare.
