Blasted Bruin Basketball Bias is Blatant!

The front page headline in this morning's (UC)LA Times sports page written by reporter Ben Bolch's read, "Bruins barely put up a fight against Grizzlies". The UCLA Bruins Men's Basketball team lost 66-57 to Montana last night, and they received a front page article and headline. Meanwhile, the USC Trojans Men's Basketball team beat #19 Texas 73-56. No front page article or headline. The Trojans are relegated to page C-5.

USC center Nikola Vucevic scored a career high 24 points to spark the upset! The Trojans played spectacular defense and finished down the stretch!

So why does a UCLA defeat make the front page and a USC victory make page 5?

The answer, as usual, is as follows: The (UC)LA Times' BLASTED BRUIN BASKETBALL BIAS is BLATANT!
