first_imgUNDATED (AP) — Tiz the Law looks every bit like the best 3-year-old in the world and is the Triple Crown favorite, even with the races being run out of their normal order.It’ll take something spectacular Saturday from a watered-down field to prevent him from becoming the first New York-bred horse to win the Belmont Stakes in over 130 years. Tiz the Law has the same owners and trainer as Funny Cide, who fell just short of the Triple Crown in 2003.A Belmont win would complete 82-year-old trainer Barclay Tagg’s personal Triple Crown and make Tiz the Law the front-runner for the Sept. 5 Kentucky Derby.

Saturday’s perfect day came at the right time

first_imgLast week was crazy, to say the least. I covered the election and the ensuing protests for Annenberg Media. It was a great experience sitting in the control room of our studio, surrounded by some great friends while producing about seven hours of live television. It was a really unique working experience — nothing like I’ve had as a sports reporter. In all of the hubbub of political reporting that I was around, I needed a break. When I say I needed a break, I don’t mean turning away and ignoring the vast political divide that’s consuming our country on a nationwide level and the relationships of those around me. I just needed a detox. Something that would allow me to slow the onslaught of political news that I was consuming from work, social media, television and my friends and family. My brain was on overdrive and a crash was coming any second. I knew that I needed something to get away, something else that I could dedicate my thoughts to for a short period of time that was far away from the political realm. So, I thought, what better way than to turn to sports?The anticipation was palpable on Saturday morning, and I wasn’t even in Seattle. My day started with a USC sport, but it wasn’t football. The No. 2 USC Men’s Water Polo team hosted No. 1 undefeated UCLA to close out their MPSF regular season. The Trojans pulled off the upset to end UCLA’s 57-game win streak that dated back to last season. Any win over the Bruins is a great way to start one’s day. After the action in the pool, the No. 7 Women of Troy took to the soccer pitch to open their first round game of the NCAA Tournament against Eastern Washington University. USC roared out to a 3-0 lead in the first half courtesy of two goals from senior midfielder Morgan Andrews and one from junior midfielder Nicole Molen. While the Eagles scored a goal in the second half, it was USC’s victory all the way. As a Trojan fan, I was feeling pretty good. Then, USC women’s volleyball started off its match against Cal up in Berkeley. After a close first set against the Bears, USC quickly put them away to get the three-set sweep. All of this happened before the kickoff of the football game. After having gone through all these victories, I was beyond ready and excited for the kickoff. I fully believed in USC’s ability to pull off the upset. What transpired during the roughly three-and-a-half hours on the gridiron was amazing. While the Trojans made some mistakes and missed some coverages, their ability to fight back and hold the lead for nearly the entire game gave me flashbacks of the Trojan team I grew up loving. Every facet of the Trojans’ game was something to marvel at. They kept their penalty number low, held the Huskies to 17 rushing yards and the offense put up 400 yards behind a Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week performance from Darnold. Jackson had a game himself with two huge interceptions on Browning. It was overall a beautiful USC football game. The feeling was euphoric when I was able to hear the “We Are ’SC” chants clearly through the TV. Saturday was the best USC sports day I could possibly ask for. Every team that played while representing cardinal and gold won. There was really no better way to finish off my week sportswise. It refreshed my brain and readied me for the swarm of news that came in on Sunday. By taking in the revelry of USC sports, I was in no way ignoring or trivializing the political distress many in our country are facing nor the political victory the other half is celebrating. Sports just allowed me to take a step back and remember that there are other things in the world than the U.S. presidential election and its outcome, to remember that life goes on. The sun rose on Wednesday morning — as it does every day — for every American, regardless of who they did or didn’t vote for. Our country has a deep fissure rooted beyond just the results of the election, but in a time of such discord, sports can provide a relief — a break from everything that’s going on in the world. Sports can be bigger than themselves, and in this current climate, sports can bring people together when everything else is tearing them apart.

Trojans seek important road win after UCLA upset

first_imgComing off of its biggest win of the season, an 84-76 victory over then-No. 8 UCLA at the Galen Center, USC will be tasked with traveling up north to take on Washington (9-12,  2-7) Wednesday night. Entering the Alaska Airlines Arena for its contest against the Huskies, USC and Washington are two programs heading in completely opposite directions. The Huskies are entering Wednesday night’s matchup in the midst of a three-game losing skid. Washington’s most recent loss came on Sunday against No. 5 Arizona, 77-66. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the Trojans have won consecutive conference matchups and will enter their game against Washington just one week after topping a highly favored UCLA team at home. However, the Huskies do present a threat to USC. In Washington’s loss to Arizona this past weekend, freshman guard Markelle Fultz — one of the most touted players in the nation — finished with 16 points (8-of-23 shooting), nine rebounds and three assists. On Tuesday, Fultz was announced a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, which is awarded to the top point guard in the country. Fultz is also on the midseason list for the Wooden Award, which is given annually to the top player in the nation. The leading scorer in the Pac-12, averaging 23.3 points per game (No. 6 nationally) this season, Fultz is the only player in the country to be averaging 20 points, six rebounds and six assists per game — and the Trojans are more than aware of the threat he poses.“[Fultz] is a great player at all three levels. He can score the ball well and gets his teammates involved,” junior guard Jordan McLaughlin said. “We’ve been practicing on keying in on him and knowing where he is at all times defensively.” Washington currently sitssecond-to-last in the Pac-12 standings, only ahead of an Oregon State team that is winless in conference play this season. However, eight of the Huskies’ nine total victories this season have come on their home floor at the Alaska Airlines Arena. Washington is 8-5 overall at home this season and 1-7 on the road. “We’ve just got to come in really prepared,” junior guard Elijah Stewart said. “We’ve got to make stops in transition, and make someone else on their team be an impact player.”Stewart’s one-handed putback slam against UCLA was one of the biggest highlights in the Trojans’ victory over the Bruins last Wednesday. Stewart finished the contest against UCLA with 15 points and three steals. Another emerging threat for USC is redshirt sophomore guard Shaqquan Aaron, who was named the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week on Monday for his 23-point effort off of the bench against the Bruins. In a career-best performance, Aaron shot 4-of-9 from beyond the arc to spur on the Trojans’ upset victory. “Big games, big stage, these are the types of games you want to perform well in,” Aaron said. Wednesday’s contest with Washington will mark the beginning of the end of conference play for USC; it has only nine Pac-12 games remaining on its schedule this season, including the tilt in Seattle. “[The Huskies] are scrappy, and they aren’t just going to let anyone walk in there and get a win,” McLaughlin said. “We’re just worried about focusing on the task at hand right now. Practicing, getting better, we just have tunnel vision right now.” After taking on Washington on the road, USC will remain in the state of Washington for its following contest against Washington State (11-10, 4-5) on Saturday.last_img read more
