Wonk Night highlights widespread I-5 Rose Quarter project concerns

Great turnout! (Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The idea behind Wonk Night is to go deeper into the issues, get questions answered, and connect with other people. Based on early reviews from last night’s event, it appears to have been a big success. About 40 people braved a stormy evening and came together in the offices of Lancaster Engineering downtown to learn more about the I-5 Rose Quarter project’s environmental assessment (EA). We had drinks (thanks in part to an assist from The Stre...

UCLA men’s basketball hopes to avoid complacency with three-game winning streak

LOS ANGELES — Just when UCLA looked to be out of the race for a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament — one of the few goals left for the underachieving team after a disastrous nonconference season — the Bruins found a sense of urgency. Where did the sudden spark come from? “Losing,” sophomore guard Chris Smith deadpanned. Motivated from a three-game losing streak that included getting swept at home by Colorado and Utah, the Bruins have won four of the past five games, including a three-game ...

Big West: UC Irvine ready to say goodbye to Jonathan Galloway, senior class

With the Big West Conference regular-season title already in hand, there remains one thing left on UC Irvine’s to-do list before the conference tournament: Saying goodbye to the senior class.

Wonk Night Wednesday (3/6): Let’s talk about the I-5 Rose Quarter project

What’s the purpose of this proposed overcrossing at NE Clackamas street? Is it only to dress up the plan drawings and hide the widening of the freeway beneath it? (Graphics: ODOT) While the fact that the Oregon Department of Transportation wants to widen I-5 through our central city gets most of the attention (reasonably so), an estimated half of the project’s $500 million price tag will be spent on surface streets and non-freeway infrastructure. If the I-5 Rose Quarter project ever gets buil...

Chris Smith, UCLA hope to maintain momentum after win over Oregon State

LOS ANGELES — Chris Smith weaved past Ethan Thompson, jump-stopped by Thompson’s brother Stephen and saw Kylor Kelley under the rim. The UCLA guard knew there was no going around Oregon State’s 7-foot center. So Smith went right through him. The sophomore rose up for a massive one-handed dunk, slamming the ball over Kelley, the second-best shot-blocker in the nation. The UCLA bench burst into celebration, the crowd at Pauley Pavilion roared, but for Smith, who also scored the game-winning basket...

David Singleton starts in place of injured Prince Ali for UCLA against Oregon State

LOS ANGELES — UCLA’s most experienced player made way for one of his youngest teammates Thursday as redshirt junior guard Prince Ali was held out against Oregon State and freshman David Singleton got his first career start.

Prior to Thursday’s game, Ali’s position in the rotation was in jeopardy as the guard was in...

UCLA men’s basketball resets after crushing collapse against Utah

LOS ANGELES — Less than hour after David Singleton was doubled over in disbelief from watching what should have been an insurmountable lead disintegrate into UCLA’s third straight loss, the freshman guard stood straight-backed and relaxed at the free throw line in a mostly empty Pauley Pavilion.

In the aftermath of last Saturday’s loss to Utah, the Bruins processed how they could have possibly let a 22-point lead slip away in 12 minutes and how they can move forward...

The Titans are winners of six of their last seven, a stretch that comes after Fullerton lost its first two games in conference play. The run has lifted the Titans into a tie for second place with UC Santa Barbara at 6-3, two games behind first-place UC Irvine.
