While showstopper Hassan Adams couldn't be happier for LeBron James' early success, the standout freshman is ready to step into the spotlight

When Hassan Adams saw what LeBron James did to his old high school on Saturday, he wasn't surprised one bit.

James, who is considered the best high school player in the nation and the consensus No.1 pick in the next NBA draft, scored 52 points for Akron, Ohio's St. Vincent-St. Mary against Adam's old team, Los Angeles' Westchester High School, at a tournament in Trenton, N.J. [Read article]

photo 'Cats won't look past Bruins

Steve Lavin has seen both the good and bad of what coaching at UCLA can bring.

The good: reaching the Sweet 16 five times in the last six years and averaging 20 wins per season since he became the Bruins' head coach seven years ago.

The bad: Lavin this year has become one of the most hated men on the Westwood campus after suffering through one of the worst seasons ever for the storied program. There is even a Web site dedicated to his firing at [Read article]

He sets his glove down, grabs a cup of water and takes his usual seat on the bench at the end of the dugout.

In the middle of the third inning during his first start of the season, junior pitcher Sean Rierson has already been roughed up for nine runs by Brigham Young University.

He stares blankly at the field waiting for the top of the fourth.

Arizona came from behind to win the game and Rierson got a no decision. [Read article]

Tennis climbing Pac-10 ladder

The Pacific 10 Conference has historically been the nation's best conference for men's tennis, with this year being no exception.

Five Pac-10 teams are in the top 15, including UCLA, who is the country's top team.

The 48th ranked UA men's tennis team has enjoyed a 5-1 season up to this date, but it will get a glimpse of where it stands among the nation's top teams as the Wildcats travel to Los Angeles. There, they will take on No. 14 and defending national champion Southern California (4-2) tomorrow and top-ranked UCLA (6-0) Saturday. [Read article]

Golf finishes in third due to weather

The women's golf team got a chance to do something most sports teams don't get a chance to get away with öö blame something else for a loss.

Rain postponed, and finally resulted in the cancellation of, the final round of the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge at the Palos Verdes Golf Club in Palos Verdes, Calif.

Hard rain caused the tournament to be called when the tournament director decided the course couldn't handle the half-inch that had fallen yesterday. [Read article]

Perfect Valentine's Day?
Valentine's Day: a day of teddy bears, candy and a nice romantic dinner for two. That means just another day of sports, unhealthy food and sports for me. I would do my daily reading while rocking my robe, then off to the driving range. When all my balls get lost, it's time for the horse races. If I make enough money, I can ask the really cute ticket girl that I place my bets with to be my last-minute Valentine. Hopefully, I would have enough to take her to a nice dinner. If not, it's off to the batting cages and then home for ESPN Classic. [Read article]

Hoops guard out for year

After the Wildcats got a little good news last week, when found out they were in a second place tie in the conference, they received some bad news yesterday.

Freshman guard Katrina Lindner tore her ACL in her left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. The injury was suffered in practice on Feb. 7.

Lindner suffered a similar injury last season during the Red/Blue Scrimmage. She redshirted last year because she tore the ACL in her right knee. [Read article]
