As USC reached the midway point of spring workouts Thursday, Coach Steve Sarkisian decided to shake things up. About an hour into the Trojans' eighth practice, players gathered in an end zone at Brian Kennedy-Howard Jones Field for a competitive one-on-one drill. A dance contest. Players whooped and hollered as teammates squared off in the surprise competition as music blared from sideline speakers. "Guys have some moves and some guys don't," Sarkisian said. "I think some guys might listen to country music.

Every once in a while, amid the emotional ups and downs of high school sports competition, there needs to be a reminder of what's truly important, and nothing offers a more powerful perspective than listening to a father's anguish about his son. "The toughest thing is, I'm completely helpless," Mission Hills Alemany baseball Coach Randy Thompson said in describing the challenge of trying to help his 12-year-old son, Tyler, make it through 15...

Whether Frederik Andersen will start a fourth consecutive game as the Ducks' goalie Friday versus the Nashville Predators is something Coach Bruce Boudreau kept to himself Thursday. But when asked whether Andersen belongs in the conversation about NHL rookie of the year, Boudreau was far more forthcoming. "I would love just to hear his name mentioned," Boudreau said of the 6-foot-4, 230-pound backup, who won all three of those starts for the Pacific-Division leaders while Jonas Hiller rested.

Seventy-seven games and a Pacific division title into this season and Clippers Coach Doc Rivers is still learning about who and what he has - and how far this team might go. He knows tendencies and traits from watching slumps and hot streaks. He has collected cold, hard facts by observing players' reactions to adversity and good times. The picture is becoming clearer for Rivers, but it still wasn't complete after a late push by the Clippers fell agonizingly short in a 113-107 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday at Staples Center.

It will be weeks, probably months, before Don Baylor can return to the Angels as their full-time hitting coach after he underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured right femur, a freak injury Baylor suffered while catching the ceremonial first pitch before Monday night's season opener. But Baylor's soothing voice will remain in the heads of hitters when they step into the batter's box. "He talked a lot about confidence, about staying within yourself, about keeping the train going," third baseman David Freese said before Tuesday night's 8-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners in Angel Stadium.

SAN DIEGO -- For what it's worth, Yasiel Puig said he is listening. To his teammates. To his coaches. Even players on other teams. Over the last week, the Dodgers' problem child made it a point to speak with Albert Pujols of the Angels during the Freeway Series. He also solicited advice from Robinson Cano, who was with the Seattle Mariners in Anaheim. Puig talked to them about his difficulties at the plate in spring training. What they told him was similar to what he was told by Dodgers coaches Mark McGwire and Manny Mota when he batted .122 in the Cactus League.

Their coach might be sounding alarms, but the Ducks continued to thrill Wednesday. A game after they rallied from a team-record four-goal deficit, Anaheim wiped away the Edmonton Oilers' two-goal, third-period lead and won their 50th game, 3-2, at Honda Center. “Not the best way, but if we play the way we've been playing in the third period … we have that attitude of never say die,” Ducks forward Corey Perry said after scoring twice in the third against Oilers goalie and ex-Duck Viktor Fasth.

John Calipari waited until he heard the question and quickly set the record straight when asked about his abilities as a recruiter. "Wait a minute. Wait a minute," the Kentucky coach said. "When I was at UMass, we had one McDonald's All-American, Donta Bright. When I was at Memphis, we may have had three over my years there. We weren't getting top-50 players at UMass. We were winning. We were a terrific team. I had to coach guys four years. " This is not the first time in this tournament, or over the years at Kentucky, that Calipari has pointed out he has built programs differently and won. But the Calipari everyone knows at Kentucky has become synonymous with one-and-done freshmen, five-star recruits who bolt to the NBA after one season.
