Whicker: Riverside City College, Santiago Canyon remember shock of stoppage time

Where were you when the music stopped? Phil Mathews and the Riverside City College men’s basketball team were just passing Magic Mountain, on the way to Lemoore for the state tournament. “I’d had a bad feeling,” he said. “They said they were going to play without fans. I said, OK, we can do that. Then when the NBA called everything off, I said, that’s it.” The call came, and Mathews told the bus driver to pull over, and he turned to his team and explained that a surprising 21-9 season would be s...

When Narendra Modi took notes: How the owners of India’s language newspapers “advised” the PM six hours before he announced a 21-day shutdown. (Or so it seems.)

Narendra Modi‘s relationship with the news media since becoming prime minister in 2014 has been built on conspicuous contempt and confrontation, but behind the scenes, chummy co-option and cultivation has been a constant endeavour. Modi likes the world to believe he is not bothered with what the “news traders” of the mainstream media say, when he can directly “speak” to the people through social and public media: so no media adviser; no journalists on board his aircraft; no press conferences; no...

Mitch Englander scandal spurs calls for John Lee to resign

Calls for Los Angeles Councilman John Lee to resign are arising amid questions about his participation in a Las Vegas trip which led to the arrest of his former boss, Mitchell Englander.

Alexander: A Senior Day that USC’s Jonah Mathews will never forget

LOS ANGELES — How appropriate. Early on, Saturday’s USC-UCLA game at Galen Center was excruciating. Balls kept clanking off rims and thudding off backboards, and the view of the Pac-12 on display before a national TV audience was, to be kind, less than flattering. By the end, it was a classic. And the final dagger was delivered by a four-year Trojan who came onto campus with no guarantees and ended up indispensible. Jonah Mathews broke the school record for career 3-pointers earlier in the day, ...

USC captain Jonah Mathews hits big shot to beat UCLA

LOS ANGELES — The fans who’d painted their bodies in cardinal and gold spelled out “Jonah’s City.” By the time his final game at Galen Center was over, Jonah Mathews had proved them right. The senior captain broke USC’s all-time 3-point record, took charges, made some clutch free throws, and missed others. But with USC down by one and nine seconds left, Mathews dribbled up the court and waved off all comers. He dribbled left, stepped back and calmly sank a 3-pointer. UCLA’s counter with one seco...

USC’s Jonah Mathews sees himself as a basketball lifer

LOS ANGELES — When he walks onto the Galen Center court for the last time, Jonah Mathews will have 30 to 40 family members and friends in the crowd. Old classmates from Santa Monica High have been snatching up tickets in advance of his USC swan song. Those are the perks of being the local kid. “Everybody’s gonna be here,” he says. Mathews is one of five Trojans who will be honored on senior day Saturday as USC hosts UCLA in the teams’ regular-season finale. He’ll be joined on the court by Nick R...

USC hoping to turn Arizona win into March momentum

LOS ANGELES — The USC men’s basketball team relieved itself from several sources of pressure with a 57-48 win over Arizona on Thursday night. It gave the Trojans a true signature victory over a team that was ranked top 10 in NET, something USC was in dire need of as it approached the end of the regular season. It ended USC’s 2-5 start to the month of February, and helped alleviate fears that a poor finish to the season could keep the Trojans out of the NCAA Tournament. But after a month of backw...

Novelist Attica Locke talks race, justice and ‘Heaven, My Home’ ahead of LA, Pasadena events

Raised in Houston, Attica Locke spent a good part of her childhood watching East Texas pass by from the backseat of the family car as her family drove up and down Highway 59 visiting family. “I’ve said before that it’s almost as if I became a writer on Highway 59 because it was during a lot of these long car rides that I would just sit and daydream and make stuff up,” she says. “I could be just enthralled by thinking about the trailers I was passing, and the creeks and the woods, and the little ...

USC basketball must address turnovers after Oregon loss

USC found itself in a double-overtime battle at No. 12 Oregon on Thursday night, the chance to grab a signature win within grasp. But the Trojan offense went silent after regulation, managing only eight points in the overtime periods and losing 79-70. “We were right there and we lost,” USC head coach Andy Enfield said to reporters following the loss. “It hurts when you lose a game and have a chance.” It might be particularly painful given the miscues that contributed to the USC loss. The Trojans...

Federal judge annoyed with Travis DA for recalcitrance on innocence case

Rosa Jimenez, the Austin babysitter wrongly convicted of murdering a child in her care 17 years ago, is likely innocent and should be released, four different judges (two federal, two state) have now declared, despite a Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruling to the contrary.
