Matthew Slater, son of Rams Hall of Famer Jackie Slater, gives Patriots a heads-up

Jackie Slater is regarded as one of the greatest offensive linemen of all time for what he accomplished during his 20-year career with the Rams. But success didn’t follow Slater when he trotted to the middle of the field for the coin toss before games. “I think I lost something like 17 straight coin tosses,” he said.

Black Panther Composer Ludwig Göransson On His Surreal Oscar Nom And Virgo Work Ethic

Ludwig Göransson’s morning was relatively chill for a first-time Oscar nominee. He woke up at the somewhat reasonable hour of 5:15 a.m. to watch Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announce the first wave of Academy Award nominations from the comfort of his own bed, streaming it on his wife’s phone. When his name was read as one of the nominees for Best Original Score, the Black Panther composer understandably freaked out. But a few phone calls later — one from his director and good friend Ry...

USC basketball looks to snap another skid – this one to Arizona

LOS ANGELES — Enough time has passed since the USC basketball team last beat Arizona that only one player is left on the roster who was a part of the victory. Bennie Boatwright, the Trojans’ sharp-shooting senior forward, was a freshman in 2016 when the Wildcats were toppled in a quadruple-overtime thriller, scoring 15 points in 41 minutes as one of USC’s five players in double figures in the upset. After one practice earlier this week, Boatwright recalled the lively home crowd that, for at leas...

UCLA men’s basketball looks to offense to recapture Pac-12 success

LOS ANGELES — Murry Bartow wasn’t brought in to solve UCLA’s offense. The first-year-assistant-turned-interim-head-coach was hired as a de facto defensive coordinator, but on Tuesday, Bartow stood in the corner of the practice court in Mo Ostin Center and fielded questions on a turnover-prone offense and his trapping defenses alike. One proved particularly daunting. “When you look at your offense,” a reporter asked, “what does it need to be more efficient?” “Whew,” Bartow sighed. “How long do I ...

Big West basketball: Long Beach State preaching improvement over wins

Long Beach State suffered its first Big West loss of the season Saturday, falling in overtime to rival Cal State Fullerton. Still, it was the end of what head coach Dan Monson considered a good two weeks for the Beach. LBSU went 2-1 to start conference play, and the coach didn’t want to see his players discouraged after a tough loss. Especially when results won’t really matter until March, when the Big West Tournament takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim. “It’s a long ways to go. We’re thr...

USC women’s basketball holds off late UCLA rally to notch season’s first conference win

LOS ANGELES — USC already gave up one double-digit lead to UCLA this year. The Trojans wouldn’t do it again.

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.

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...

UCLA not shying away from Kris Wilkes despite recent shooting struggles

LOS ANGELES — Murry Bartow knows better than to stifle Kris Wilkes. The UCLA interim head coach has watched a growing number of Wilkes’ shots dribble off the rim lately, but Bartow has still bestowed upon the sophomore the title of “bucket-getter.” “We want him to score, we want him to shoot it a lot, but he’s gotta be efficient in his shots,” Bartow said Wednesday. Although Wilkes has scored in double figures in all 17 of UCLA’s games entering Saturday’s 1 p.m. rivalry game at USC, the sophomor...
