UCLA basketball: In Sunday's Sports section, an article on UCLA's victory over Washington State in basketball reported that the Bruins were two games out of first place in the Pacific 10 Conference, that they had a 1-5 record in games away from their Pauley Pavilion home court and that the nine points scored by guard Mustafa Abdul-Hamid were a career high. UCLA is one game out of first place and 1-6 away from Pauley Pavilion, and Abdul-Hamid's career high in scoring is 10 points.

Bob Hope Classic: In Tuesday's Sports section, an article on the golf victory by Bill Haas at the Bob Hope Classic said his uncle Bob Goalby won the 1968 Masters, the beneficiary of the unsigned scorecard by Roberto De Vicenzo. Goalby is Haas' great-uncle and De Vicenzo signed an incorrect scorecard, one that gave him a 66 rather than the 65 he actually shot, thus giving the victory to Goalby.
