College basketball may be in the rearview mirror now, but there was a happy ending for our women's basketball team.

According to the Westbrook's foundation website: "The mission of the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation is to inspire the lives of children, empower them to ask Why Not? and teach them to never give up."

Russell Westbrook is a true Bruin!

Something big is happening this weekend. Be part of it.

Speaking of something big, this is truly frightening.

If the name Bob Bowlsby sounds familiar, it's because like Dan Guerrero, he's a visionary who hired this guy:
