Jason Flowers has the Cal State Northridge women's basketball program going places

Flowers, 38, dreamed of playing at UCLA when he was a kid growing up in Watts. But, like his team this season, he didn’t get off to a promising start. He was cut by the Bruins as a walk-on, transferred to UC Irvine and made a name for himself in two seasons there, then worked his way back to Westwood.
