  • Rebuilding Year? Not These Culver Girls

    Fred Altieri|Feb 4, 2016

    It's been a challenging year so far for the 2015-16 Culver City High girls basketball team. They fought through a tough preseason and incurred their first Ocean League loss in five seasons a few weeks ago at El Segundo High. The young team has clearly been struggling to establish its identity. Regardless, the Centaur girls are quietly on a six-game winning streak. Following two non-league wins they have swept their last four Ocean League contests and are back into a first place tie with El...

The Centaurs' most impressive win of the year came at Lawndale High on Friday, January 29.

  • Clippers Have A Dilemma With Griffin

    Mitch Chortkoff|Feb 4, 2016

    As the Clippers ponder their decision about Blake Griffin they have to take into account the franchise’s history. They cannot escape the reality that there’s been a lot of trouble in the past when Donald Sterling was the owner. It’s always something with the Clippers, or so it seems. Sterling would refuse to honor contracts of coaches he’d fired. A lot of time was spent in court. A new era began with wealthy new owner Steve Ballmer and a coach, Doc Rivers, who had an NBA championship on his res...
