Whicker: The 2019 NCAA tournament, from A to Z

The 2019 NCAA men’s basketball tournament, from A to Z: A is for Auburn’s Anfernee McLemore, a shot-blocker who wrote a kinesiology paper on Gordon Hayward’s gruesome ankle injury.

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament East Region breakdown

Here’s a breakdown of the East Region of the NCAA Tournament: FAVORITE: Duke The No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, the Blue Devils are as loaded as ever. Few teams can match up with athletic forward Zion Williamson, expected to be the No. 1 pick in this year’s NBA Draft. SLEEPER: Belmont Belmont was the mid-major darling everyone wanted to see get an at-large bid, and the Bruins did just that.

Best places to travel in May

We’ve finally reached the light at the end of the winter tunnel. Daylight savings is over and the sun is shining, and all is right with the world. No? Still not in full-on summer mode yet? Well, that’s ok — May is a mere two months away, bringing with it the unofficial start of summer at Memorial Day. It also brings music festivals, barbecue festivals, and even a camel-riding festival. Plus Cinco de Mayo and the general relief that we don’t have to think about winter again until football is b...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Abortion-rights defenders have expanded their legal fight against Kentucky to try to block the state’s most restrictive abortion measure, which would mostly ban the procedure once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

New green deal: Tuesday’s college admission indictments show collateral damage of higher-priced education

So much for non-revenue-producing sports. USC, UCLA, Georgetown, Yale, Texas, Stanford, Wake Forest and the U. of San Diego all showed up in a Justice Department indictment, a litany of negligence and privilege. It is not the most unsightly blemish on intercollegiate sports, but might be the most comprehensive. Rich parents want their kids in college. College coaches and administrators want to be rich people. Young men and women who don’t even sail, row, or play tennis, soccer, volleyball and wa...

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...
