How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

UCLA men’s basketball season in review: End of Steve Alford era opens uncertain future

As time wound down in UCLA’s season-ending loss to Arizona State in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas, Pac-12 Networks announcer Ted Robinson said he couldn’t imagine a more uncertain time for the prestigious program. Bill Walton, analyst, UCLA legend and ardent Bruins supporter, agreed as UCLA finished 17-16 overall and 9-9 in Pac-12 play. A coaching search loomed over UCLA’s Pac-12 season after Athletic Director Dan Guerrero dismissed former head coach Steve Alford on New...

USC men’s basketball season in review: Trojans never took flight in 2019

USC basketball coach Andy Enfield was already a little irritated. It was mid-October, three weeks before the Trojans were to play their first game. About half of the team’s scholarship players were sidelined for practices. Their 5-on-5 workouts were postponed. “It’s been the most unusual preseason in our coaching careers,” Enfield lamented at the time. A critical period for a reworked roster to jell was lost. The early setbacks were signs the Trojans’ season was poised for trouble. They never se...

Alexander: You may want to consider UC Irvine when making out your bracket

The world according to Jim: • We are all … Anteaters? From the desert to the sea, from the Tehachapis to the Mexican border, there is one men’s NCAA Tournament team for all of Southern California. It’s UC Irvine, and it might hang around for a bit. The Anteaters, who swept through the Big West and take a 30-4 record to the Dance, have size (as always), experience and stubbornness on defense. They’ve received a fairly favorable draw – by Big West standards, anyway – a No. 13 seed and a first game...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament South Region breakdown

With so much going on, who can remember what happened the last time Virginia was the No. 1 seed in the South Region? Oh right, everyone does. Last year Virginia became the first No. 1 seed to lose in the first round – and it wasn’t close, with No. 16 UMBC winning by 20. After a stellar regular season – the only losses were to No. 1 overall seed Duke — now the Cavs are right back in the same spot. Will the added motivation lead to their first Final Four in 35 years, or will the added pressure lea...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament Midwest Region breakdown

North Carolina was the third team from the ACC to receive a No. 1 seed, following Duke and Virginia. Its selection is slightly more controversial. The two best wins on the Tar Heels’ resume came against the Blue Devils when they were without their best player. In both instances, their archrivals did not have their star freshman Zion Williamson on the floor. Williamson suffered a mild knee sprain in the early minutes during their first meeting in late February when his shoe split and later was ou...

A shift in giving means local nonprofits must adapt

Are Americans – and Angelenos – becoming less generous? If so, what does that mean to the charities and nonprofits striving to address homelessness, addiction, mental illness and many other issues in our community? Nationwide, charitable giving rose by a lackluster 1.6% in 2018, a dramatic pullback from 2017’s increase of more than 8%. These figures come from a new study by the Fundraising Effectiveness Project, using data provided by 4,500 nonprofits across the country. Especially worrisome was...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament West Region breakdown

Defense wins championships, the old saying goes, but high-powered offenses could ultimately dominate the West Region of this year’s NCAA Tournament. Three of the top 13 scoring teams in the country will battle in the West Region, led by No. 1 seed Gonzaga. The Bulldogs have the highest-scoring offense in the country at 88.8 points per game, but were held to a season-low 47 points in the West Coast Conference tournament final in an upset loss to Saint Mary’s. Sixth-seeded Buffalo ranks fifth in t...

Big West Women’s Tournament: UC Davis overcomes 17-point deficit to beat Hawaii

IRVINE – It was the comeback UC Davis will always remember, and that Hawaii will try hard to forget. The Aggies, owner of three straight regular season titles but looking for its first Big West Tournament championship and NCAA bid since 2011, trailed a physical Hawaii team at the Honda Center by 17 points early in the third quarter. And then, as UC Davis coach Jennifer Gross said, “everything was a blur.” The Aggies began a run at that point that wouldn’t end until the final buzzer. They outscor...
