Matter of Fact: USC defeat necessary to ensure successful season, fan support for Mora

The battle of the banners. The banner bowl. The sky-valry match. It’s possible nothing could get the angriest, most vocal Bruin fans – the ones who paid thousands of dollars to fly messages of “NO MORA” over the Rose Bowl before Saturday’s game – on board with keeping coach Jim Mora around.

Wang’s Word: UCLA must discipline basketball players for China arrests

I’m more familiar with the legal system in China than I should be. My grandfather was mauled by a drunk driver six years ago in broad daylight in front of multiple witnesses near Wuxi, a city two hours west of Shanghai. Read more...

The UCLA men's basketball team was eliminated in the Sweet 16 last year after an exciting regular season. That team isn't the only one in Westwood who did well, but not well enough to win it all. (Daily Bruin File)

Gott’s Thoughts: The search for No. 114 affirms good-not-great status of UCLA athletics

I grew up a Dodgers fan, so I’m used to watching my team lose in the playoffs. When I got to UCLA, I thought that was going to change. Read more...

Jonah Bolden's career at UCLA was nothing special, but the 6-foot-10 guard/forward has been impressive in his time in the NBA Summer League thanks to experience that he picked up playing overseas after he left Westwood. (Daily Bruin file photo)

Wang’s Word: International league experience could be helpful for NBA hopefuls

The last time Jonah Bolden played college basketball, he had one of the worst seasons statswise among the 2017 NBA Draft class.
