Big West basketball: UC Riverside’s David Patrick learning through trial and error as first-time head coach

UC Riverside is undergoing what you might call a transition season. At 6-12 overall and 0-2 in Big West Conference play, the Highlanders aren’t turning many heads. But it’s Riverside’s first season under head coach David Patrick, who was hired following a two-year stint as an assistant at TCU and four years at LSU. So the Highlanders are going through some growing pains, learning what the coach expects from them as he learns what their strengths and weaknesses as a roster are. In his 14 years as...

25 years after the Northridge earthquake, another one could hit ‘any time.’ Are we safer?

A quarter century has passed, but David Miller will never forget the sound. “It was like there was a freight train under my house,” he said, recalling the moment 25 years ago Thursday, Jan. 17, when the Earth’s plates suddenly slipped along a previously unknown fault 11 miles beneath his Prairie Street home in Northridge. Firefighters work to free trapped residents at the Northridge Meadows Apartments on Reseda Blvd in Northridge CA. (Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG) Firefighters examine the ...

Gomez, CSUN men’s basketball win Big West opener against UC Riverside

RIVERSIDE – This was a game where even the normally nattily dressed David Patrick decided no jacket was required. It was a game where Dikymbe Martin – who normally becomes unplayable in the second half — did most of his damage in the first half. And a game where UC Riverside deviated from so many norms that you thought the counterintuitive would be the norm. Instead, the norm with Cal State Northridge in their Big West opener was the norm. The Matadors went into the Student Recreation Center Wed...

Big West basketball: UC Irvine enters conference play with confidence

After two months of nonconference play, with some teams going through grueling schedules, Big West play starts this week. UC Irvine enters with a bit of a chip on its shoulder. After winning regular-season titles in three of the previous four seasons, the Anteaters finished tied for second last season and lost to Cal State Fullerton in the Big West tournament final, just missing a ticket to March Madness. Still, no one has lost much confidence in UC Irvine, the preseason pick to win the Big West...

Whicker: The numbers are there for CSUN’s Lamine Diane, but there’s more to come

NORTHRIDGE — Almost habitually, the basketball wound up in the hands of Lamine Diane. Only this time, those hands were just in front of the hash mark near the CSUN bench, a long way from Diane’s usual operational base, with the clock racing toward zeroes. There was only one decision to make, and even that was an impulse. Diane threw up the shot as the buzzer resounded. When it swished he was gang-tackled by his teammates. Joyful noises are not common at the Matadome, and these died in silence du...

Where the Big West stands as conference play approaches

We’ve reached January, which means that in less than two weeks, Big West men’s basketball will begin its conference play. It was a rocky nonconference slate for the Big West, with only three of its member teams finishing on the right side of .500, but that’s to be expected to some extent with the number of Pac-12 and other Power Five opponents teams such as Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton scheduled. So if nonconference records can be deceiving, then, really, where does each team stand a...

Big West basketball: Cal State Fullerton looking to up its hustle

There wasn’t much to be encouraged about when it came to Cal State Fullerton’s 86-62 loss at No. 25 Nebraska on Saturday, but there was one category in which the Titans showed improvement. Fullerton outrebounded the Huskers 49-38, with 15 offensive rebounds. It’s a number slightly inflated by how poorly the Titans shot the ball, but progress on the glass is a good sign for Fullerton. It’s an area head coach Dedrique Taylor has been stressing since the start of the season, and one in which he’s s...

Big West basketball: Long Beach State seeks comforts of home

The Beach is returning home, and it can’t come soon enough. Long Beach State’s suffered through a road-heavy start to the season, with 75 percent of its first 12 games coming on the road or at neutral sites. LBSU is 1-8 in those contests, and 0-7 in true road games. Even with a couple of those trips simply going across the county to play USC or UCLA, it was a grueling stretch, and one that’s coming to an end with Long Beach State set to play three of its last four nonconference games at home, st...

Woman, teen accused of murder in death of baby abandoned in Corona

Publicity of the emotional community funeral this month for an unnamed baby found dead in Corona this summer near a freeway prompted a person to call police, a tip that led to the arrests of a 22-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of murder. Corona police announced Thursday, Dec. 13, that Shawna Joelle Andritch was arrested Dec. 7 and the teen was arrested Wednesday. Corona police Sgt.
