UCLA baseball’s Garrett Mitchell emerging as force on top-ranked team

LOS ANGELES — Jake Pries helped an affable freshman with little hoop earrings take a mandated concussion test on a computer and knew immediately there was something different about Garrett Mitchell. Then he saw him on the baseball field. “I’ve never seen anybody like this in my life,” UCLA’s senior outfielder said of his first impressions of Mitchell on the field. Mitchell, a now sophomore, is “by far” the fastest player Pries has ever shared a baseball field with. Despite a 6-foot-3, 204-pound ...

Alexander: Isn’t it time to end NCAA’s shamateurism charade?

As the Final Four approaches, it is again time for a reminder that the people most responsible for the success of March Madness are the same ones who get the least out of it. One of the most popular sporting events of the year is one in which oceans of money are passed around (TV networks to NCAA, NCAA to conferences, conferences to schools, schools to coaches, and did we mention shoe companies to schools, coaches, etc.). And yet … well, this anecdote probably explains a lot. Remember when Duke’...

Accessible Pizza And Other Highlights From CSUN 2019

Domino’s Pizza suffered a major blow recently: A federal appeals court reversed a lower court ruling* and affirmed that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does cover the Domino’s websites and mobile apps — and yours, too. The lower court will now examine the extent to which the pizza maker’s digital properties are inaccessible and […]

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...

Birmingham’s Noel Ortega leads 2019 Daily News All-Area boys soccer team

The Daily News All-Area boys soccer team: PLAYER OF THE YEAR Noel Ortega, Birmingham, Sr. Noel Ortega came back to play high school soccer at Birmingham for one thing. “When I left the academy, I knew I had to win a ring,” Ortega said.

Big West Tournament: Previewing all four quarterfinals as teams chase NCAA Tournament bid

The Big West men’s basketball tournament starts on Thursday at Honda Center, with the eight qualifying member schools looking to earn the conference’s one bid to the NCAA Tournament. The stakes are crystal clear. Even top-seeded UC Irvine, owner of a 27-5 overall record and one-loss conference mark, knows it will not be granted any favors from the selection committee in the form of an at-large bid. “We accept that to make the NCAA Tournament we need to win the Big West Tournament,” UCI head coac...

Whicker: UC Irvine gets ready to tiptoe through a favorite’s graveyard

Are the UC Irvine Anteaters the best men’s college basketball team in California? Maybe. Another question: Will it matter? UCI rolls into the Big West Conference tournament, beginning Thursday, with a 13-game win streak and a 27-5 record, best in school history. It has the No. 1 seed, which UCI’s head has borne uneasily in the past. Three of Russell Turner’s previous eight UCI teams have won the top seed and lost in the tournament, twice in the semifinals. That’s a ticket to either the NIT or th...

Big West: CSUN’s Channon Fluker nearing end of storied career for Matadors

Channon Fluker added two more pieces of hardware to her collection on Monday. The senior CSUN center was named first-team All-Big West Conference for the fourth time and won her second consecutive Big West Defensive Player of the Year award. Add those to her Big West Player of the Year plaques from her sophomore and junior seasons and her Freshman of the Year award from 2015-16. The wall in her parents’ Pasadena home where Fluker keeps these accolades is getting a little crowded. But now Fluker’...

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. Saturday’s game against Cal State Northridge is the Anteaters’ Senior Night. Four players – Jonathan Galloway, Elston Jones, Robert Cartwright and Spencer Rivers – will be honored for their contributions to the UCI program. Few players have made a bigger impact at UCI (25-5 overall, 13-1 Big West) than Gall...

Big West: Long Beach State gaining confidence, momentum

Last week was one of the best for Long Beach State in a while. LBSU won both its games, earning its first winning streak since early January. The wins moved Long Beach 1.5 games out of fifth place in the Big West, a spot that would be much more favorable come conference tournament time. But the biggest moment for Long Beach State came after its win over CSUN. Head coach Dan Monson was giving what appeared to be a routine postgame speech about the value of sacrificing for the good of the team. In...

CSUN’s new police chief says threats aren’t always preventable, but impact on students must be softened

Mission League: Harvard-Westlake baseball aims to defend league title

This time last year, all the talk was about Notre Dame’s No. 1 ranking in the nation by BaseballAmerica.com. However, that’s not the kind of season the Knights had. Instead, it was Harvard-Westlake that ended up going 18-0 in the Mission League, winning the league crown and earning the No. 1 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. The Wolverines were upset on their own field by Valencia, a wild-card qualifier that scratched and clawed its way by a complacent Harvard-Westlake team. ...
