🎓🤸‍♀️Gymnastics: For the first time since 2006, UCLA didn’t qualify as a team to NCAA Championships, but three gymnasts will represent the Bruins at nationals. Nia Dennis, Margzetta Frazier and Chae Campbell will compete for individual titles in tomorrow’s 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT semifinal. 

  • Dennis and Frazier are competing on vault and uneven bars, respectively, so we won’t see either of their iconic Internet-breaking floor routines. Bummer.
  • Campbell, on the other hand, will compete in the all-around and rotate with the LSU Tigers, who are so pumped that they’ve learned her floor routine to do on the sideline. S’cute. 

🏀Basketball: Limited fans are back for tonight’s edition of the Lakers’ historic rivalry with the Boston Celtics. However, the talk of the town isn’t about seeing the defending champs in person, but instead Staples Center’s ableist and sexist "no bag" policy. Who approved this? 

  • Moving onto better choices, we’re starry-eyed over the Sparks’ new jerseys. And while the WNBA season’s still a month away, tap in tonight to see who the Sparks select with the seventh and 10th overall draft picks.

🏈NFL: The Rams aren’t in season, but defensive tackle Aaron Donald is in the news. A criminal complaint was filed against him yesterday for alleged assault. Stay tuned.
