Culture carries UCLA women’s basketball into 4th straight NCAA tournament

LOS ANGELES — If it had been up to the players, UCLA’s women’s basketball team likely wouldn’t have played in the 2015 WNIT at all. The Bruins were 13-19, fed up from a frustrating season that included several blown late-game leads, and would have much preferred to be on spring break instead of running through practice drills. But it wasn’t up to them. “(The coaches) wanted to put the future of the program first,” said Kari Korver, a redshirt sophomore that season who is now in her first season ...

Discussing the Hobey Baker Finalists

Yesterday, the 10 finalists for this year’s Hobey Baker Award were announced. Here were some of my thoughts on the players selected, players that weren’t, and who should end up winning the award in Buffalo. Earlier this year, I heralded this as the Year of the Defenseman. At the end of the season, that still holds true. Six of the ten finalists for the award were defensemen. And it was much deserved because those defensemen scored at a truly incredible rate this year. I mentioned in the pr...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

No NCAA Tournament, NIT for USC basketball

Last year on Selection Sunday, USC’s basketball team met at a banquet hall at the Galen Center in anticipation of receiving an at-large berth for the NCAA Tournament. There was no suspense this time.

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...

With a chance to make the playoffs during the final week of the season, the Otters had four chances to make something happen in the standings.

Despite falling just short, it doesn’t take away from what the Otters almost accomplished. Consider for a second wha...

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. Pasch is all too familar with Walton's quirky behavior, so he couldn't help making light of the ill-tim...
