USC basketball looks to snap another skid – this one to Arizona

LOS ANGELES — Enough time has passed since the USC basketball team last beat Arizona that only one player is left on the roster who was a part of the victory. Bennie Boatwright, the Trojans’ sharp-shooting senior forward, was a freshman in 2016 when the Wildcats were toppled in a quadruple-overtime thriller, scoring 15 points in 41 minutes as one of USC’s five players in double figures in the upset. After one practice earlier this week, Boatwright recalled the lively home crowd that, for at leas...

Want the Wild to rebuild and start over? It's harder -- and riskier -- than you might think

The Wild will have a week off for the All-Star break starting Thursday and will arrive at the unofficial midpoint (50 games played is not half of 82) in a familiar position. The Wild is very much in the mix for a playoff spot — a little better than a coin flip, depending on where you look at probabilities — but Minnesota clearly isn't one of the NHL's very best teams. Top 16? Possibly. Top five? No chance. This middle ground has defined much of the last seven seasons (counting this one) since th...

Lakers enthusiastic about Rajon Rondo possibly returning Thursday

LOS ANGELES — Last week as the Lakers prepared to take on Oklahoma City, Moe Wagner and Svi Mykhailiuk found themselves on their heels against a near-unstoppable opponent. Rajon Rondo, still with a wrap around his right middle and ring fingers, was destroying them in a two-on-two scrimmage with Ivica Zubac, running a devastating pick-and-roll. “C’mon, guard him!” Wagner shouted at Mykhailiuk after Rondo had passed for a Zubac dunk. “He’s only got one [expletive] hand!” In the event Rondo can pla...

“Expect The Unexpected” From Evgeny Kuznetsov

from Alex Prewitt of Sports Illustrated, Beyond the overarching cultural shock of moving halfway around the world, Evgeny Kuznetsov was struck by a few smaller unfamiliarities upon finally joining the NHL in March 2014. Receiving per diem on road trips, for instance, was an entirely foreign concept in his native Russia. Ditto for dining alongside coaches at team meals and dumping the puck into the offensive zone. But nothing—absolutely nothing—bothered the Washington Capitals center more ...
