Give it a try: Light it up for the Lightning


Your Los Angeles Lightning of the International Basketball League have a pair of tryout sessions set for this weekend at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.

You got game? No, really. We’re talking to you, Venice Streetball Guy Who Talks Big.

It’s not as if the defending IBL champs, starting their third season, really need you. But if you’re inclined, coach Ron Quarterman and owner Mark Harwell will evaluate talent from 1-4 p.m. Saturday and 1-3 p.m. Sunday at the Gilbert Sports Arena. It’ll cost you: $150.

The Lightning have had up to six former NBA players on the roster, including ex-UCLA standouts Toby Bailey and Derrick Martin, plus former Clipper Lamond Murray.

They open their 20-game schedule on May 7 with road games in Edmonton before returning home on May 15 against the Oregon Waves.
