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...

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 ...

Revamped NCAA waiver policy helps transfers play right away

Last year, a high-profile overhaul of NCAA transfer rules stopped short of creating free agency in college sports. A much quieter change, however, helped quarterback Shea Patterson play for Michigan and will determine whether Justin Fields is eligible this fall at Ohio State. The modification to the waiver process can be seen as something of […]

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...
