If the hockey gods had a sense of humor, they would have arranged for the Kings and the Ducks to play for the Pacific Division title Saturday at Staples Center. At the very least, they would have put one team in position to knock the other out of the playoffs. Alas, the hockey gods must have been busy elsewhere because they didn't leave much drama surrounding Saturday's game. The Kings have been locked into third place in the division for a while, certain that they will start on the road against the San Jose Sharks, likely on Wednesday.

Ryu Hyun-jin could immediately be a No. 3 starter in a major league rotation, according to his agent. “He's ready to pitch in the big leagues right now,” Scott Boras said. “He's not a developmental project.” The Dodgers bid $25.7 million to win a league-wide auction for the right to negotiate with Ryu, a seven-time South Korean All-Star. Ryu and the Dodgers have 30 days to reach an agreement. Ryu intends to be a starting pitcher, according to Boras. How the Dodgers want to use Ryu will be one of the factors he will consider when deciding whether to sign with the Dodgers or return to the Hanwha Eagles.

NEW YORK -   Any college basketball fan worth their bracket fee will recall the many glorious years of the Big East, from the colorful '80's teams of John Thompson and Lou Carnesecca to, in recent years, the highly competitive games between the likes of Louisville and UConn . They'll also remember the inglorious end to what was once the strongest conference in the nation: desertions by Syracuse and Pitt to the ACC and the splintering...

Two days of cautious optimism on the NHL labor front came to a screeching halt Thursday when the league summarily dismissed a trio of counteroffers made by the players' association during a negotiating session in Toronto that broke off after little more than an hour. "It's clear we're not even speaking the same language in terms of what they came back to us with," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, speaking to reporters in Toronto. Bettman had spearheaded the latest round of negotiations Tuesday by offering the players a new proposal revolving around a 50-50 split of league revenue that the league said was designed to salvage the full 82-game regular season.

This post has been updated. See below. The NHL Players' Assn. on Tuesday requested a meeting with the NHL, but league executives have not scheduled another bargaining session. The league, which locked players out Sept. 15, last week set a deadline of this Thursday for having a new, written collective bargaining agreement in place and preserving a full schedule this season. Without any negotiating sessions planned, the prospects of a full season being played appear dim. “They have indicated a willingness to meet, but at this point there is nothing to meet about,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said by email Tuesday night.

Any optimism that a deal between the NHL and the Players' Assn. might be imminent following the union's presentation of a “comprehensive” collective bargaining proposal Wednesday morning lasted only a few hours. That's all it took for the sides to meet and for the NHL to reject the proposal, in which players said they had made moves toward the NHL's stance in several areas. “We are still far apart. It's frustrating for everybody,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters in New York.

GRANT LAST SEASON: 5-11, 3-7 in league THIS SEASON: Coach Howard Levine is pragmatic about his team's chances in league play. "I think we have a realistic shot at the City playoffs," said Levine, in his first year after taking over for retired Bill McKee, who coached the Lancers for the past 27 years. If the Lancers make a move, junior Danny Enowitz, a 6-1 swingman, will probably show the way. "He just might lead us to the promised land," Levine said.

Gerrit Cole had an impressive major league debut Tuesday … a nd he pitched well too. Cole, a former UCLA pitcher, was called up by the Pittsburgh Pirates and sent out to face the San Francisco Giants. Cole had already pitched two scoreless innings when he came to the plate with the bases loaded. He fell behind, 0-2, worked the count full and then singled to right to drive in two runs. “I got a little lucky,” Cole told reporters after the game. “That was my first hit since high school.” Lucky or not, the Pirates' Andrew McCutchen told reporters, “He looked like a big league hitter working the count like that.” As for the pitching part, Cole lived up to being the first overall pick in the 2011 draft.

 The Trinity League quarterbacks are getting lots of love from college recruiters, and the season is still months away. K.J. Costello , a 6-foot-5 junior-to-be quarterback at Sana Margarita, has picked up a scholarship offer from Florida State. He joins Travis Waller of Servite, a senior-to-be with multiple offers, and St. John Bosco's Josh Rosen, who's committed to UCLA.

The ball teetered on the lip of the 16th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. It was 2005, and after Tiger Woods' now-famous chip shot fell in for a birdie and Woods went on to win the Masters for the fourth time, Jim Michaelian made a decision. With Woods' popularity and Tiger-driven television ratings soaring, Michaelian was convinced that the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach should not be run on the same day that the winner of a golf major was being fitted for a green jacket.
