UCLA came on late in trying to recruit Parker Brown. The Bruins might have been last in pursuing Brown, but they finished first in landing the standout outside hitter from Corona del Mar High. Brown has committed to play for the UCLA men's volleyball program, the Balboa Bay Volleyball Club announced on its Facebook page on Thursday. Last week, Brown said UCLA moved up to the top of his list because of its new coach, John Speraw. Brown said Speraw recruited him while Speraw was at UC Irvine, which won the NCAA title this past season, the program's third crown in the last six seasons under Speraw.

The rumors that had circled him for a decade, formed more ominous clouds in the last 12 months and became tangible clues Monday night, were substantiated Tuesday, when UCLA announced it had hired John Speraw away from the UC Irvine men's volleyball program. For Speraw, a return to his roots meant tearing asunder a decade worth of foundation for what had become the nation's leading program, with three NCAA titles in the last six seasons. But ultimately, despite continually touting Orange County as his version of volleyball heaven, home was, and now becomes again, Westwood, where he played and coached under the legendary Al Scates.

IRVINE - UC Irvine junior Kevin Tillie grew up in France and played his first two collegiate men's volleyball seasons in Canada. So, when it came to assessing the storied NCAA championship history of the Anteaters' Mountain Pacific Sports Federation quarterfinal opponent on Saturday, UCLA was not so much an imposing force as a pain in the rear. Rather than 19 NCAA titles and the swan-song 50th season of legendary Bruins Coach Al Scates, all Tillie could think about was his woeful negative .222 hitting percentage (two kills on nine attempts with four errors)

John Speraw, who coached the UC Irvine men's volleyball team to NCAA titles in 2012, 2009 and 2007, has left the school after 10 seasons to become coach at UCLA, Bruins' Athletic Director Dan Guerrero announced Tuesday. Speraw, 40, replaces Al Scates, who retired after 50 seasons. Speraw played for two UCLA national championship teams and was an assistant coach when the Bruins won NCAA crowns in 1998 and 2000. Speraw was 199-106 at UCI, where he catapulted the Anteaters to national prominence and guided them to the NCAA Final Four four times in the last seven seasons.

IRVINE - Just like his teammate on Sunday, UC Irvine starting pitcher Evan Brock gathered himself following a rocky first inning to mow down a string of opposing hitters. But unlike Crosby Slaught, whose stabilizing act was later rewarded by an offensive outburst and a victory, the only fireworks to make an appearance later Monday night against UCLA were those in the postgame pyrotechnic show. The result was a 6-2 nonconference triumph for the No. 9-ranked visitors, who scored three in the first inning, then waited to expand upon their lead against UCI relievers.

"The (UCLA) water polo program is awesome," Dorr said.

OJAI - The Di Giulio family of Newport Beach did a lot of winning Friday at the 114th annual Ojai Tennis Tournament. Austin Di Giulio is an eighth grader. Joseph is a freshman at UCLA. But "The Ojai" is varied enough that both had their time to shine. And it was no accident that Paul and April Di Giulio wore UCLA clothing as they watched their sons play, while younger brother Perry, 8, donned a UCLA cap. Austin moved into the semifinals of the Ojai boys' 14s tournament Friday afternoon after outlasting William Grant of Santa Barbara, 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, at The Thacher School.

With the NCAA tournament underway, it's worth remembering that March Madness hasn't always been around to turn us into a nation of obsessed college basketball fans. Back in more provincial times, one man contributed as much as anyone to raising the profile of college hoops. But outside of the most knowledgeable basketball insiders, his role has largely gone overlooked. Perhaps that will change with the recent publication of "In the Shadow of a Legend," which chronicles the story of Jerry Norman, John Wooden's assistant coach during UCLA's first four championship seasons.

Old Trojans don't die, they just move to Newport Beach. Wealthy alums here venerate a winning USC football tradition. Houses hang USC banners and flags, cardinal and gold colors are everywhere. I am grudgingly tolerated as a Cal-Berkeley alum. A whole lifestyle revolves around SC football in Southern California. The alums here were furious at the performance of the team this year and the direction they felt the program. Alums here make major gifts to the athletic department, and the disgust felt with Lane Kiffin made it certain that his days as head coach were about to end. Athletic Director Pat Haden was a major star at quarterback for the football team back in the 1970s.
