UCLA, USC women square off again after tough Pac-12 start

LOS ANGELES — UCLA’s scout team can’t change out of the cardinal-and-gold practice jerseys fast enough. Immediately after practice Tuesday, they shuffle out of the women’s basketball practice gym as players and coaches gather at center court. “You look appropriately terrible in those shirts,” head coach Cori Close called out. Nothing signals rivalry week for the UCLA women’s basketball team like the USC practice jerseys. Pam Walker saves them for twice a year. UCLA’s director of operations, in h...

Ducks’ Troy Terry focused on his game after a minor detour

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Troy Terry led Team USA to the gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 2017, when he went 4-for-4 in shootouts, scoring the game-winners in victories over Russia and Canada en route to the gold medal. It was a mere warmup for an appearance in the 2018 Winter Olympics, though. Sandwiched between was an NCAA championship with Denver University, when he totaled four points (all assists) in Frozen Four wins over Notre Dame and Minnesota-Duluth. After his 2017-18 collegiate ...

The optics were just all off. UCLA in Pauley Pavilion, getting trampled by Liberty, the crowd showering the Bruins with boos.

Things couldn’t go on like this. “I think that was the final nail in the coffin,” MacLean said. About 30 hours after UCLA’s 15-point loss to Liberty, news broke of Steve Alford’s dismissal.

The list of Pac-12 contenders for the 2019 Heisman Trophy starts with the unknown unknown

In this space one year ago, the Hotline correctly identified the Pac-12’s top Heisman Trophy contender for the 2018 season — in concept if not in name: “If 2018 plays out like 2017 and 2016 and 2015,” we opined, “the Pac-12’s top candidate is not currently considered a top candidate.” At the time, Gardner Minshew wasn’t even on a Pac-12 roster. The most predictable aspect of his emergence on the Heisman scene was its unpredictability. The 2015 season was supposed to be about Jared Goff as the Pa...

Bennie Boatwright stepping up and leading USC at the right time

LOS ANGELES — By the time Bennie Boatwright stepped onto the court for his season debut in mid-November, the USC basketball team had already played its first two games and gone through nearly six weeks of preseason practices, including a pair of private scrimmages against Mountain West Conference schools. All without him. Recovering from offseason knee surgery, Boatwright had undertaken a months-long rehabilitation process before returning for the Trojans. The arrival of Boatwright was anticipat...

All the post-White House offers of free food to Clemson football players probably aren't NCAA compliant

Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan made an offer on Good Morning America Tuesday morning.
