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...

Galaxy getting familiar with new coaching staff at training camp

CARSON — Training camp is only three days old, but the message from the new technical staff and new coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto is being sent. “Everybody is stiff, everybody is sore,” Galaxy forward Ola Kamara said. “It’s a higher intensity from the beginning and I think the intensity was something that we lacked last year.” The Galaxy reported for preseason Sunday and spent Monday and Tuesday going two-a-days, which meant a lot of running, under the direction of new fitness coach Javier Va...

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 ...

In deal between LAUSD and teachers, some parties gained ground while others gave it up

After sighing a breath of relief Tuesday morning on the picket line outside Taft High School, teachers returned to campus in the afternoon to vote on a tentative agreement reached between UTLA and LA Unified School District like UTLA’s other 30,000 members. The ew contract secures a 6 percent wage increase — 3 percent retroactive to the 2017-18 school year and another 3 percent retroactive to July 1, 2018 — and commits to a gradual decrease in class sizes over the coming three years, hiring of m...

What will make LAUSD teachers’ deal work? New outside funding – and teamwork

Teachers, board members and experts had just begun to scrutinize the landmark deal that effectively ended the Los Angeles Unified School District’s strike on Tuesday. But one thing is clear: The agreement will call for a complex mix of flexibility and cleverness from the district to secure an influx of new funding from the state and elsewhere to fend off the financial disaster that LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner has been warning of since the day he took office. LAUSD strike update: UTLA say...

Southern California dodged the Amazon Iceberg

If recent history is a good predictor, this year California politicians could dole out over $900 million in taxpayer money for corporate handouts. And cities like Los Angeles that lost out in the sweepstakes for Amazon’s second headquarters (or “HQ2”) may be motivated to double down on the next big prize. But Californians should be skeptical when politicians try to woo a corporate giant. A deeper look at the Amazon dog-and-pony show explains why. Sure, politicians from sea to shining sea offer c...

Big West basketball: Long Beach State preaching improvement over wins

Long Beach State suffered its first Big West loss of the season Saturday, falling in overtime to rival Cal State Fullerton. Still, it was the end of what head coach Dan Monson considered a good two weeks for the Beach. LBSU went 2-1 to start conference play, and the coach didn’t want to see his players discouraged after a tough loss. Especially when results won’t really matter until March, when the Big West Tournament takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim. “It’s a long ways to go. We’re thr...

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.

New LAUSD board member — whoever it is — will need to bridge union, district divide

With all eyes focused on a strike by Los Angeles Unified’s 30,000 teachers, it was possible to forget the school board is still one member short. Who that member is matters — a lot. A special election on March 5 will determine who will fill the empty District 5 seat and enter a fraught atmosphere stemming from the stand-off between the teachers’ union and the district and the continuing debate over charter schools. The District 5 seat was left open when Board Member Ref Rodriguez stepped down la...

USC blasts UCLA to snap rivalry losing streak in men’s basketball

LOS ANGELES — USC had waited long enough for a win over crosstown rival UCLA. The Trojan band couldn’t bear to wait any longer. “Hurry up and lose,” the USC band chanted in the final minutes of Saturday’s 80-67 win over UCLA. “Hurry up and lose.” USC snapped a four-game losing streak in the rivalry, burying the Bruins in the second half to hand UCLA its second consecutive conference loss.

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. Nothing signals rivalry week for the UCLA women’s basketball team like the USC practice jerseys. Pam Walker saves them for twice a year. UCLA’s director of operations, in h...
