Bill Walton takes bathroom break before Arizona State-Oregon OT

Arizona State and Oregon went into overtime in Friday night's Pac-12 men's basketball tournament semifinal game, but ESPN college basketball analyst Bill Walton couldn't wait that long to take a bathroom break.Since the break between the end of regulation and the start of overtime is not that long, ESPN play-by-play man Dave Pasch was left by himself for a few seconds at the overtime tip-off.

Alexander: Marquee matchup at Indian Wells fails to appear as Rafael Nadal withdraws

INDIAN WELLS — It is the closest thing to a matchup of legends that the men’s tennis tour currently has: Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal. And it was supposed to be the centerpiece of Saturday’s schedule at the BNP Paribas Open. As they say in the business, never assume. The players did their part on the court in the days leading up to Saturday, but Nadal’s body – specifically his right knee – would not cooperate with the plan. Shortly before the beginning of the first semifinal, Dominic Thiem’s 7...

Joshua Kelley passed on NFL, stayed at UCLA to ‘get even better’

LOS ANGELES — Last August, Joshua Kelley was a walk-on who had never appeared in a Division I football game. Four months, 1,243 yards and a record-setting performance against USC later, the jovial running back was weighing a jump to the NFL draft. The rise was humbling, said Kelley, who last season became UCLA’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2015. He appreciated the opportunity to possibly fulfill a childhood dream. But as the redshirt junior considered the decision during the offseason, Kelley ...
