TV Best Bet: College Football National Championship

COLLEGE FOOTBALLFBS National Championship, Monday, January 7, 5 p.m., ESPN Given ESPN’s reputation for self-promotion and indulging grandiose visions, it’s no surprise it is approaching tonight’s FBS National Championship game between Alabama and Clemson as if it was The Rapture.

USC women’s basketball aims to sustain hot start in Pac-12 play

The start of the USC women’s basketball season included an impressive stretch. As the Trojans began 10-1 overall, they won nine consecutive games, including seven by double-digits, moving into one of the national polls for the first time since 2014. Last week, they were No. 25 in the coaches’ poll before suffering their first loss with a 71-51 defeat at Texas A&M. It has been a strong enough start for the Trojans that they were projected earlier this month as an eighth seed in the NCAA tournamen...

Pac-12 Hotline: There’s one man to blame for every struggling Pac-12 basketball team

As the losses mount, the outlook darkens and the urge to assign blame soars, it’s easy … so, so easy … to point all fingers and toes at the commissioner. Larry Scott is to blame for the dumpster fire that is Pac-12 basketball, right? Actually, wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Responsibility for the current mess lies, almost entirely, with the head coaches. They aren’t getting it done, folks. Some are performing better than others. But collectively, the coaches have failed to maximize what each partic...

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...

Big West basketball: Cal Poly enduring growing pains

When you look at Cal Poly’s 0-4 road record this season, the team’s youth jumps at you as the reason. The Mustangs feature six freshmen, and youth is frequently the culprit when teams struggle away from home. But that’s not entirely fair to the first-year players, only four of whom have played this season. After all, Cal Poly’s first two road trips were to face Pac-12 opponents Arizona and Washington State. The next two, at Portland and Fresno State, were games that could have gone either way. “...

Big West basketball: UCSB, minus Max Heidegger, still thriving on defense

UC Santa Barbara’s men’s basketball team got home at 4 o’clock Monday morning, a bitter taste in its mouth after a close contest in Seattle. The Gauchos just missed a statement win against Washington, falling 67-63 to the Huskies. UCSB had trailed most of the game but fought back to tie, and even had a chance to take a lead with 1:35 left to play. The Huskies closed the game on a 7-3 run to end the Gauchos’ five-game winning streak. UCSB would have naturally preferred a win over their first Powe...

UC Irvine’s offense falls short in loss to Utah State

IRVINE — What was supposed to be a matchup between two of the top mid-major programs in the country turned into a humbling experience for the home team on Saturday night. UC Irvine (7-2) lost to Utah State 89-65 in a game in which the Anteaters never led. “I don’t remember losing a game that felt that bad at home since I’ve been here,” head coach Russell Turner said. “I told the team that after the game. This was one of the most embarrassing performances we’ve had.” The matchup was supposed to b...

UCLA football 2018: 5 burning questions for the offseason

It seem cliché, but players swear that all of Chip Kelly’s catch phrases work. “So what, now what,” became a player favorite as it kept the Bruins focused following their 0-5 start. Don’t stress about the past, don’t worry about the future, make something happen now. So the Bruins went 3-9 in the first year under Kelly. Now what do they have to address to make next year better? What will Joshua Kelley do for an encore? After Joshua Kelley got benched against Fresno State, the running back look...
