Duke Ihenacho hosts NFL Camp in Gardena

WWith talks of an NFL team coming soon to Los Angeles, the fan base for football fans in LA don’t all agree on which team to represent. Just because we don’t have a team, doesn’t mean we aren’t producing amazing NFL players! Duke Ihenacho is from Los Angeles and currently plays for the Washington Redskins. He held his 2nd annual camp at his alma mater, Serra High School in Gardena. He brought out some other NFL players and friends, including Omar Bolden, Keith Smith, Bene Benwikere and more! Check out the photos from all the action below!

LA D-Fenders beat OKC Blue in overtime

IIt’s been a while since I’ve been to a D-Fenders game but I had to check one out before the season was over. (Thanks Dexter Strickland for the tickets)

The D-Fenders had some familiar faces – Dexter Strickland, Vander Blue and Jamaal Franklin. The game went down to the wire – with the d-fenders barely winning with seconds left on the clock. It was a fun game! Be sure to check out the gallery below

Jordan Hangar opens in Los Angeles

AAnyone who follows Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand has heard of Terminal 23 – a private gym located in the heart of New York – reserved for special events, as well as private runs that include anyone from Carmelo Anthony to Chris Brown. Jordan Brand has opened up a west coast version of this iconic gym in the heart of Los Angeles, called Jordan Hangar. The old airplane hangar was transformed into a basketball court, as well as other stations that include everything from checking out new clothes or trying out your dribbling skills.

This weekend hosted 2 days of excitement – Saturday featured LA Clippers Chris Paul, while Sunday was a battle of the best high school players in Southern California. I made my way down there Sunday  and got to check out some top basketball talent from Los Angeles, The Valley, Orange County, and Inland Empire. The championship game was IE vs LA, resulting in IE taking the win. As a special surprise, NBA Finals MVP and IE native Kawhi Leonard came to congratulate the players. The venue is really amazing, anyone who gets an opportunity to visit, make sure to check it out!

USC takes win over CSULA Exhibition Game

TThe Galen Center hosted the first basketball game of the season – an exhibition between USC and Cal State Los Angeles. Despite being in two different divisions and conferences, the game had some nice highlights – from crossovers to blocked shots. The season looks like it will be an exciting one for the Trojans. They have a lot of young guys with amazing talent. Freshman Jordan McLaughlin started his college career with 18 points, while Sophomore Nikola Jovanovic had 16 points. Cal State LA had recent transfer LaBradford Franklin – who just came from playing at San Diego State. It was great seeing him in action on the court, really leading his team.

USC alumni JT Terrell was in attendance to check out the game as well. Make sure to make your way to the Galen Center next weekend to see them take on Portland State!

Don Benjamin hosts Celebrity Basketball Game

BBasketball is a year round game. Even with the NBA season ends, the summer brings just as much action. With the summer officially over, there are many basketball lovers that keep the games going. Supermodel Don Benjamin hosted his second annual celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles, CA. The game featured street ball legends Bone Collector and Sik Wit It, Harlem Globe Trotters Tammy Brawner and Chris Staples, actors Malcolm D Kelley, Najee De-Tiege and many more! There was a team of celebrities that went up against a team of high school players. The score was really close and went down to the wire – with seconds left on the clock and the score tied, the High School team brought the ball down and hit a winning 3-point shot at the buzzer to win the game! It was a great atmosphere and a fun time! Check out the photos below:

Sacramento State defeats CSUN – Men’s Soccer

OOver the summer I met a few friends that are very into soccer – so they’ve been trying their best to get me to come out to some games and become a fan. My friend Chimdum Mez (aka Chimi) is a player for Sacramento State. They had a game here at Cal State Northridge so I went to check it out with my camera. I was up in the stands but overall I had a fun time! Chimi did great, scoring the goal that ultimately won the game! I wish them the best of luck in the season – I might have to check out some more games!
