The UConn Huskies women’s basketball team was getting ready to head home for the holidays. But first they had some business to take care of in the Basketball Hall of Fame Women’s Holiday Showcase at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Sunday afternoon.
Their opponent, the UCLA Bruins, didn’t prove to be that much of a match as UConn went on to an easy 86-50 win in front...
College football’s bowl season has officially kicked off, but that doesn’t mean the coaching carousel has slowed down even a tick. Sunday morning, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that two successful college coaches – Auburn’s Gus Malzahn and UCLA’s Jim Mora – are garnering interest from NFL franchises. Rapoport, speaking on the NFL Network, added that if the Miami...
What’s the only way Steve Alford could put his team’s embarrassing and pathetic performance Saturday into a reasonable context? By giving Kentucky all the praise he possibly could. Alford’s UCLA Bruins, yes, the same program that has won a record 11 national championships, were held to just seven points in the first half of their...Read More

The tally was Kentucky 8, UCLA 7 at the half.
No, it wasn't a low-scoring game Saturday in Chicago.
Rather, the top-ranked Wildcats had eight blocked shots in the first half; the Bruins, meanwhile had seven points.
The final score was No. 1 Kentucky 83, unranked UCLA 42. It was the second-worst defeat in the storied history of the Bruins, the worst being a 109-61 thrashing by Stanford...
After the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats jumped out to a 24-0 lead over UCLA, it was clear the Bruins were in for a long day. It didn’t much better for the Bruins as the Cats took a 41-7 lead into halftime, as the Cats looked like what john Calipari-s team look like in March as they […]
Still in need of a signature win, the UCLA Bruins now head to Chicago to face top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in the CBS Sports Classic. Remember when No. 1 Kentucky was knocked off by a then-unranked and resurgent Indiana squad in 2011? Maybe the Bruins will find what they're looking for Saturday when the clock hits zeroes.
OK, so maybe UCLA, who briefly flirted with the rankings this...
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) A quick glance at top-ranked Kentucky's meeting with UCLA and it looks like another marquee opponent that could struggle to keep up with the Wildcats' platoon system.
After all, Kentucky (11-0) went 10 deep in beating Kansas and Texas by double digits, and it handily defeated North Carolina last weekend without forward Alex Poythress, who suffered a season-ending...

It's that time of year when a handful of college football programs are in search of a new head coach, which usually leads to endless amounts of rumors that involve coaches under contract.
Enter UCLA head coach Jim Mora, who Vegas betmakers placed 8-1 odds on him becoming the next leading man at the University of Michigan. Mora is only behind current San Franscisco 49ers head coach...
Brett Hundley has yet to officially announce his plans for the future, but the UCLA quarterback’s coach already knows what he’s going to do.
The No. 14-ranked Bruins are set to take on No. 11 Kansas State in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2. The contest will be Hundley’s last as a UCLA football player.
Mora on Hundley: “This will be his last game as a UCLA Bruin. I don’t...
UCLA's Eric Kendricks has been named the winner of the Butkus Award, named for former NFL star Dick Butkus and given to the nation's top college linebacker.
Kendricks, a senior, has 139 tackles this season, his third consecutive year over 100. He also had three interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown, and two sacks.
The other finalists for the award were Mississippi...
UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley probably could have come out this past draft class, but it’s likely a good thing that he stayed in school. All of the 2014 quarterbacks saw their NFL Draft stock fall during the evaluation process, and if Brett Hundley was indeed behind Teddy Bridgewater on the big board to begin with, then it’s a good thing he came back to Westwood for another...
When we posted the Pac-12 South mess three weeks ago Arizona, Arizona State and USC all had roads to the conference title game that meandered around like a Family Circus cartoon, but UCLA's was simple: win and you're in.Not simple enough.The Bruins laid in egg at the Rose Bowl this weekend, getting pummeled by the worst Stanford team in seven years and watching helplessly as Arizona...
PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) Isaac Hamilton scored 21 points and No. 22 UCLA salvaged one win out of its trip to the Bahamas by topping Alabama-Birmingham 88-76 in the seventh-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis on Friday night.

Eric Kendricks doesn't care much for nostalgia.
UCLA's redshirt senior linebacker prefers to live in the now and not in the not-so-distant future. One practice and one game at a time. So when he broke the school's career tackling record in his final game at the Rose Bowl, it didn't matter, he said.
His 470 career tackles didn't help UCLA defeat Stanford, and that was the one and...
The Bruins followed a script similar to the one two years ago.
After a big win over USC at home, the Bruins followed it up with an anticlimactic loss to Stanford. A season that started out with such promise, and saw all of that promise return in the few weeks, has now ended at the hands of an unranked Cardinal team.
No. 9 UCLA has not beaten Stanford since 2008, and it was the...
Two Pac-12 schools going in opposite directions will face off against each other on Friday when the Stanford Cardinal travel to take on the UCLA Bruins.
Stanford (6-5) had eyes on the Pac-12 championship this year but it is No. 8 UCLA (9-2) who is looking to punch its ticket to that game with a win in this one. Coverage of the game between these two will air on ABC and WatchESPN...
LOS ANGELES (AP) A 6-5 team is all that stands between No. 9 UCLA and the Pac-12 title game, but Stanford is no average team.
Well, no average defense, anyway.
The outstanding play of the Cardinal defense has been overshadowed by the team's offensive shortcomings, but the Bruins are well aware of the challenge they face on Friday at the Rose Bowl in their regular-season finale....

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley is playing the best football of his college career, and his professional stock has never been higher.
After beating USC last weekend, 38-20, Hundley has the Bruins on track to reach the Pac-12 title game -- they need to beat Stanford first -- with a berth in the College Football Playoff a possibility.
So it's probably no surprise that Hundley, a redshirt...
