Utes in the NBA: Delon Wright and Jakob Poeltl help Raptors big in Game 5 of NBA Playoffs

As is normal for most rookies, both Wright and Poeltl took a bit of time to adjust to the NBA and earn time in the rotation. Wright has also been slowed by injuries a little throughout his young career. Now in their 3rd (Wright) and 2nd (Poeltl) seasons with the Raptors, both are contributors in the NBA Playoffs, and both had a big impact on Game 5 of their first round series against the...

GAMETHREAD: LSU vs. Lamar, 6:30pm, SECN+

It’s not actually possible to have a week worse than getting swept by Tulane and a conference opponent. Hitting, pitching (both starting and relief), and defense all turned in sub-par performances last week that led to LSU being unranked in any poll for the first time since 2011. The only remotely good news over the past weekend was that, thanks to the mad house that is the SEC West, LSU is still, somehow, only 1 game back of the division lead. But that news feels more ominous than optimistic, as LSU enters the final month facing 4 formidable West division opponents. Between injuries and...

UCLA’s smartest man is now going to test his I.Q. at the next level. Scott Quessenberry finished his UCLA Bruins career with 44 starts at guard, tackle, and center. As a sophomore, he was...

UCLA Football: NFL Draft Profile - OT Kolton Miller

Could UCLA have two offensive players selected in the first round of the draft? Some analysts say, yes. Offensive lineman Kolton Miller moved from right to left tackle in his senior season, after missing most of his junior year with a foot injury. He played two years on the right, and moving to the left meant that it was up to him to protect UCLA’s bread and butter, Josh Rosen. 2017 was a good year for him, bringing him back to the form that earned him four stars coming out of high school, and his performance was also enough to get him second-team All-Pac-12 recognition.
