Northwestern University football players have the right to form a union, a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled Wednesday, setting the stage for potential dramatic change to the college sports landscape. Peter Sung Ohr, in Chicago, ruled that "players receiving scholarships from the employer are 'employees'" and ordered that an election be conducted to determine whether Northwestern players wanted representation by the College Athletes Players Assn. for the purposes of collective bargaining.

 Fans did not come out en masse for the Southern California and Northern California basketball regional finals on Saturday. Attendance was 5,041 for the six games played at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario and 5,815 at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento. California fans still don't get as excited for state competition as they do in Indiana, Texas and Pennsylvania. The section championships remain the top drawing card. The state championships will be played on Friday and Saturday at Sleep Train Arena.

Southern California freeways are smoother than they were two years ago, but nearly a quarter of lane miles are still in poor condition - the highest percentage of any California region, according to a new pavement quality study. About 22% of the 6,295 freeway miles in Los Angeles and Ventura counties have major potholes, severe cracks or are otherwise in bad condition, according to a statewide Caltrans survey of pavement conditions from 2011 to 2013. That figure is a dramatic improvement from two years ago, the study said, when about one-third of area freeway miles were in poor condition.

There was something to be learned about Jordan Adams from the five words he said during a news conference Sunday after helping UCLA advance to an NCAA South Regional semifinal with a win over Stephen F. Austin. Adams and Kyle Anderson, teammates and roommates, were asked about the Bruins' making the tournament's round of 16 for the first time since 2008. Anderson, speaking first, answered by talking about how much the accomplishment meant to UCLA's basketball program, and how there was still plenty of work to be done.

LOS ALGODONES, Mexico - The mighty Colorado River, which over millenniums has carved the Grand Canyon, does an unusual thing when it gets south of the Arizona-Mexico border. It dies. The Morelos Dam - sitting on the international boundary - serves as its headstone, diverting nearly all of the river water into an aqueduct that serves agriculture as well as homes in Tijuana. South of the dam, the river channel travels about 75 miles to the Gulf of California. Except when filled by rains, the channel is bone dry. But starting Sunday, the river will flow again, part of an unprecedented experiment by U.S. and Mexican officials.
