A sea of cardinal and gold poured into the Galen Center Thursday night as hundreds of students came together to celebrate USC athletics.Fall rallies in previous years focused only on USC football, but all sports were featured this year.Fight on · Song Girl Jacqueline Sarkissian performed during the rally. The Trojan Marching Band, Spirit Leaders and Trojan Dance Force were all featured to raise spirits. – Matthew Wunderlich | Daily Trojan“USC is more than just a football school,” said Daniel Ramirez, director of Trojan Pride and rally organizer. “We are an athletic powerhouse.”Naa Adei Mante, a freshman majoring in engineering, said she left the rally more excited about USC athletics than she was before.“I’m so pumped right now,” she said. “It was exhilarating and I can’t wait to see what USC sports have in store this fall.”In addition to cheering on athletes from all sports, the Trojan Marching Band, Spirit Leaders, Song Girls and the Trojan Dance Force performed.Arrogant Nation blogger Zack Jerome hosted the event and introduced the teams present.“USC is home to some amazing athletes,” Jerome said. “This university has more Olympic gold medals than most countries.”Senior women’s tennis player Alison Ramos said the rally was “absolutely electrifying.”“This is the first rally I have attended and it was so amazing that I regret not going to one during my first years here,” Ramos said. “The Galen Center was the perfect location for something like this and it added so much too the overall experience.”Women’s volleyball coach Mick Haley said he was not surprised the Galen Center was selected to house the event.“It’s clearly the best place on campus for a rally,” Haley said. “With 10,000 seats, gorgeous views of the San Gabriel Mountains, and easy student access, it’s ideal for an event like this.”Collaboration between several student organizations and the athletic department brought the rally to the Galen Center.“It’s a much better suited location than Heritage Hall or somewhere outside,” said Monish Tyagi, Undergraduate Student Government president. “The acoustics, air conditioning and beautiful space added a great deal to the entertainment value of the event.”Men’s basketball coach Kevin O’Neill called the rally a huge success.“Bringing everyone together under one roof was a really smart thing,” he said. “It was also a smart idea to focus on all sports and encourage everyone to support each other.”Junior quarterback Emon Saee said he feels more closely connected to non-football athletes after sharing classes, training rooms and participating in Thursday’s rally.“I began feeling more connected to other student-athletes the moment I enrolled in the fall of 2010,” Saee said. “I think it’s awesome all fall sports are being recognized because all athletes work hard and deserve to be appreciated.”When USC athletics were more intertwined in the 1960s and 1970s, an increase in sports and practice space has challenged USC athletics to remain closely unified, according to Haley.“With so many sports operating outside Heritage Hall, it’s easy for programs to get segregated,” Haley said. “But in order for athletes to be the best they can be, they have to network, respect, and build relationships with one another. That’s what the Trojan Family is all about.”

The announcement wasn’t all that surprising considering the crappy teams the Pelicans had put around Davis, but what followed further soured his public image. Paul released a short list of teams with which Davis would re-sign that included the Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks before Davis made a confusing TV appearance during All-Star Weekend announcing all 29 other teams were on his list. That didn’t sit well with Pelicans fans and gave the public the idea that Davis was sending out mixed signals. Davis has been a fascinating case study in how the public views uber-talented players. He started out as a darling of all, the indisputable first pick in the 2012 NBA Draft who went to New Orleans and immediately dominated, putting up statistics that were unprecedented for players his age. His 30.81 Player Efficiency Rating in 2014-15 is the 13th best of all time and by far the best mark ever for a 21-year-old. “We’re talking and trying to help each other out,” Davis said after the game of his relationship with James, according to ESPN. “The more we can do that, the easier the game will be for us and our teammates.” Davis has made only two postseason appearances but was brilliant in both. He averaged 31.5 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks per game while being swept by the Golden State Warriors in 2015 and absolutely dismantled the No. 3 seed Portland Trail Blazers before bowing out to the Warriors again in the second round in 2018. The polarized discourse around how good Davis really was intensified. He could never quite seem to put it all together from both a team and an individual standpoint. But I keep thinking about that old saying: Be careful what you wish for. The pressure is now on Davis in a way it never has been at any other time in his career. He’s on a better team, yes, but that means the excuses are gone and the expectations are higher. The spotlight in L.A. is a different animal from New Orleans, one of the NBA’s most apathetic fanbases. The Lakers have won the second-most championships of all time and have upheld a tradition of excellence that fans and the organization alike are desperate to return to this season. Then came Davis’ 2018-19 season, one of the strangest for a star in recent memory. On Jan. 26, the Pelicans lost to the Spurs 128-112, moving the team to a disappointing 22-28 record following the success of the previous season. Two days later, Davis’ agent Rich Paul — who represents his good friend LeBron James and runs the Klutch Sports Group, in which James is heavily involved — announced that Davis was requesting a trade. But as Davis’ career continued and his Pelicans teams struggled to even make the postseason, some began to question Davis for the first time. If he was so talented, why couldn’t he carry his teams to success in the sport most influenced by superstars? Aidan Berg is a junior writing about sports. He is also an associate managing editor of the Daily Trojan. His column, “Berg is the Word,” runs every Monday. Davis is somewhat in limbo right now, caught between the all-time great everyone wants him to be and the misplaced talent that we all saw last season. He’s got a lot riding on this campaign — not only to retain his reputation in the short term but to vault into the conversation as one of the greats. But Davis was eventually traded to the Lakers in June for a boatload of future assets. Davis got exactly what he wanted — he’s in the nation’s second biggest market, and he’s playing for perhaps the league’s signature franchise with one of the greatest players of all time in James. There’s also the fact that James is the perfect partner for Davis, or any other player for that matter. With his size, court vision and basketball IQ, he is perhaps the greatest passing forward ever. James will live to feed the Brow, and that’s been evidenced by reports from training camp that the two already have a strong connection. It was also proven by the team’s first preseason game Saturday night, where the two combined for 37 points on 14-for-26 shooting in a win over the Warriors. The Lakers desperately tried to set up a trade for Davis involving some of their promising young players, but after the deal ultimately fell through, the public nature of these negotiations contributed to these players underperforming as the Lakers sputtered to the 11th seed. Preseason excitement is great and all, but none of it matters once the regular season starts, and it damn sure doesn’t matter come playoff time. Davis is playing with one of the five greatest players ever; if he wants to take his place in basketball’s pantheon, he needs to come through this year. That means his usual stunning numbers and a case in the MVP race, but more importantly, a top three seed and a championship for the Lakers. No exceptions. Since USC football has a bye this week, this week’s column is going to focus on a topic I’ve been ruminating on for a few weeks now. As the NBA season approaches and the hype continues to build, I’m most interested to see one outcome: how Anthony Davis fares for the Los Angeles Lakers this season. Then things got really ugly. Davis was held out of games by the Pelicans as trade talks continued. He only played sporadically after the trade deadline and missed the final seven games as the relationship between him and the Pelicans turned irrevocably icy. He showed up to the team’s final game wearing a “That’s all folks” shirt that, along with his unwillingness to honor his contract and the way that his agency handled the relationship with the Pelicans organization, pushed fans and media pundits alike to question Davis’ behavior and status as a true superstar. There were bad feelings all around: The Pelicans felt that Paul and the Lakers had tried to strongarm New Orleans into trading Davis to L.A. and seemed to take pleasure in denying the Lakers his services by turning down and leaking multiple trade offers.

JUSTIN DOBBS (Courier Photo/William McBride/File) Former Allderdice star Justin Dobbs joins that elite company with his commitment to play at Grambling State University (GSU), a historically Black college/university (HBCU) in Louisiana.“I know I have the skills and ability to rise to the top again,” said Dobbs, a two-time New Pittsburgh Courier City League Basketball Player of the Year. “It took blood, sweat, and tears. Literally. And I’m willing to give the same effort and, hopefully, the same results.”One thing that Dobbs is looking forward to is working with his GSU coaching staff.“The thing that helped me pick Grambling was the fact that I never heard from an assistant,” Dobbs said.His head coach, Joseph Price, was a former standout guard at Notre Dame and played professionally for 13 seasons in eight different countries.“I think that Justin is coming into a great opportunity where he can come right in and get some playing time and to help us get to the top of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC),” he said.All of Price’s assistants played Division-I, two of them at Notre Dame, and have been key in recruiting some notable NBA prospects.“Accumulatively, my assistants and I have recruited names such as George Hill (Indiana Pacers), Kenneth Fareid (Denver Nuggets) and former greats like Nate McMillan (Seattle SuperSonics) and Wally Szczerbiak (various teams) to name a few,” Price added.Dobbs finished his senior season as the city’s leading scorer, averaging over 20 points per game. As a sophomore, he played the unlikely hero in the city championship for the Dragons who would go on to win two more after that.This past year, Dobbs mainly played the small forward position. At 6-foot-3, he’s expressed enthusiasm about having an opportunity to playing point guard; and in Price’s motion offense that will give him an opportunity to display his ability to score.“I’ve already proven that I can handle the ball,” Dobbs said. “Now, I’m looking forward to having an opportunity to develop into a guy who can read a play and distribute the ball.”“We’re looking forward to having (Dobbs) come down and to receive the mentorship and film study that’s necessary for him to become more of a point guard,” Price said. “We like the fact that he’s a scorer, naturally, and how he’ll add depth to our offense around the perimeter.”A graduate of Allderdice, with honors, Dobbs also fits the profile of what Price wants academically and off-the-court.“(Justin) is interested in going to class, carrying himself with integrity, and earning a degree,” he said. “We need to change the perception of our program and we’d like to do that with our incoming freshman class. He is a great model of how we’d like to do to accomplish that.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on twitter@malikvincent.) by Malik VincentDeJuan Blair, D.J.

There’s not a better feeling than there is today.“The fans, despite what they’ve been reading, they showed up. They’re here to watch good racing, they brought their families, they’ll always remember the Santa Anita Derby. It was so comforting to see all these fans here and get behind us.“They know at the end of the day we love our horses. We wake up worrying about them, we go to sleep worrying about them. To me, that’s what made this a great day.”This is Santa Anita.TRAINERS LOOK TO THE FUTURE AFTER BIG VICTORIESBob Baffert, Simon Callaghan and Jerry Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward reported their respective stakes winners came out of Saturday’s races in good order, Roadster and Game Winner after running one-two in the Santa Anita Derby, Bellafina after capturing the Santa Anita Oaks and Vasilika after yet another smashing triumph, this in the Royal Heroine Stakes.“I got to run my big horses, they ran well and they both look good today, so that’s the main thing,” Baffert said Sunday morning. “The Big ‘Cap was a helluva race (in which his McKinzie was nosed out by Gift Box after a pulsating nose-and-nose duel to the wire).“All the fans showed up to watch those races. It was a good day.”While the Longines Churchill Distaff Turf Mile May 4 had been mentioned immediately after her 2 ¾-length triumph in the Royal Heroine as a possibility for Vasilika’s next race, Ward said Sunday her next start likely will come in the Grade I Gamely Stakes May 27 at Santa Anita, where the dazzling daughter of Skipshot has won 10 of 11 races.The Grade I, $500,000 Gamely is a Breeders’ Cup “Win and Your’e In” Challenge Race to be decided at 1 1/8 miles on grass.As for Instagrand, third by 2 ¼ lengths in the Santa Anita Derby after leading into the stretch, Ward said the Pat Day Mile “is the race to look at” May 4 at Churchill Downs rather than the Kentucky Derby, adding, “but he might still go in the Derby. He ran good yesterday.”“All my horses came out of their races well,” said Callaghan, who also sent out victorious Hostess ($53) and Maxim Rate to finish a nose apart in Saturday’s Providencia Stakes. “The plan is to keep Bellafina here until maybe six days before the Kentucky Oaks (May 3).”MANDATORY SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT PAYS $53,312.60Although early prognostications forecast Saturday’s Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot pool would reach approximately $3 million, Santa Anita’s popular 20 cent minimum wager, with a mandatory payout in place, generated a massive total pool of $5,352,827.With a carryover from Friday of $815,939 serving as a catalyst, $4,536,888 in “new” Rainbow Six money cascaded in, creating a pari-mutuel bonanza for the holders of 80 winning tickets, each worth $53,312.60.With a nine-race card in store today, the Rainbow Six will be comprised of races four through nine.
