It was late Thursday night when UCLA's short-handed basketball team finally succumbed to Oregon in double overtime, 87-83. The Bruins were able to rally from a 14-point second-half deficit without their two best players, Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson , who were suspended one game for violating team rules. "I don't know if I've been more proud than I am of this team," Coach Steve Alford said after UCLA fell to 21-7 overall, 10-5 in Pac-12 Conference play. The suspensions meant a much-longer-than-usual night for freshmen Bryce Alford and Zach LaVine , who replaced Adams and Anderson.

UCLA's two best players couldn't play. The Bruins' top two scorers couldn't take shots. Their best rebounder wasn't around to rebound. Their best defender wasn't there to defend. Oddly it didn't seem to matter that guards Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson were suspended hours for Thursday's Pac-12 Conference game against Oregon. Sure the Bruins were handed the expected loss. But the Ducks had to extend themselves to the limit before taking an 87-83 victory in double overtime at Pauley Pavilion.

The puck spun and wobbled as it slid slowly toward the vacated Canadian goal. As it crossed between the circles, it angled ever-so-slightly to the left, struck the post and bounced back. That was how close the United States came to sealing the gold medal of the women's hockey tournament at the Winter Olympics on Thursday at the Bolshoy Ice Dome. Thirty seconds after the near-miss, that same puck was in the Americans' net and what looked like a dream ending for the U.S. was turning into a nightmare.

March Madness came a week early on Friday night in the opening round of the new Southern Section Open Division tournament. From No. 1-seeded Santa Ana Mater Dei requiring overtime to outlast No. 16 Montebello Cantwell-Sacred Heart, 66-59, to No. 3 Los Angeles Loyola opening a 23-point second-half lead, then barely holding off a frantic comeback by No. 14 Bellflower St. John Bosco, 70-67, it was a wild night for a tournament matching the best against...

 A 136-mile trip to Yucca Valley created a big challenge for St. Francis on Wednesday night, and the No. 2-seeded Golden Knights barely survived in a 63-59 overtime victory in a first-round Southern Section Division 3A playoff opener. Kyle Leufroy scored 27 points for St. Francis, one of four Mission League teams to win playoff openers. No. 1-seeded Santa Barbara defeated Firebaugh, 92-38. In Division 4AA, Crespi received 22 points from DJ Ursery in a 72-42 win over Fairmont Prep.

SOCHI, Russia - With four goals to his credit in the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament, Kings defenseman Drew Doughty has single-handedly outscored Team Slovakia (2), Team Norway (3) and Team Switzerland (2). As he did at Vancouver in 2010, Doughty has again showed how much he enjoys playing on the big stage. He scored both of Canada's goals Sunday in a 2-1 overtime victory over Finland at the Bolshoy Ice Dome, which gave Canada the No. 3 seed and a few days off before Wednesday's quarterfinals.

 For only the second time this season, Loyola has been beaten in a basketball game. Alemany (19-9, 8-4) did the honors on Wednesday night in a Mission League regular-season finale, winning in overtime, 75-70. Gary Chivichyan had 21 points and sophomore Darren Henson added 20 points. Brandon Boyd finished with 15 points and six assists. Thomas Welsh led Loyola with 18 points. The loss won't prevent the Cubs (24-2, 10-2) from being selected for the Open Division playoffs, but it will likely change their seeding.

When: 12:30 PST Where: Staples Center. On the air: TV: Channel 7; Radio: 710, 1330. Records: Lakers 18-32; Bulls 24-25. Record vs. Bulls: 0-1. Update: The Lakers lost at Chicago last month, 102-100, when Mike Dunleavy found Taj Gibson for an easy layup off an inbounds play with 0.9 of a second left in overtime. The Bulls are still in position to make the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference despite salary-dumping Luol Deng in a trade with Cleveland and losing Derrick Rose for the season because of a knee injury.
