When University of the Pacific Coach Bob Thomason was scouring basketball camps in search of a shooting guard in 1992, he was pointed in the direction of Adam Jacobsen, then preparing for his senior season at Crescenta Valley High. But it wasn't Jacobsen's long-range shooting that caught Thomason's attention. "At the end of the first day of camp, he sprained his ankle," Thomason said.

Some people might think Adam Jacobsen is having too much fun this early in his college basketball career. After all, he went to Pacific last year, and right away he was a starter as a true freshman. This year the Tigers made him a team captain, and the former Crescenta Valley High guard leads the team in scoring with a 19.7 average. But Jacobsen has been waiting a long time for this kind of enjoyment. Working, sweating, anticipating. It all started when he was a kid.

Crescenta Valley High guard Adam Jacobsen can shoot. The position on the floor doesn't matter. The defense doesn't matter. Blood gushing from a head wound doesn't matter. Against Mira Costa in the championship game of the St. Louis Holiday Classic last week in Honolulu, Jacobsen and an opposing player butted heads early in the game, opening a gash above Jacobsen's left eye. The cut was bandaged, and Jacobsen remained in the game to score 22 points in the first half. He finished with 29.

There was a time when Adam Jacobsen derived his basketball pleasure solely from nights spent alone on the back yard court at home. There were no coaches. No parents. No pressure. Only Jacobsen, a ball and a hoop--and a three-point line. His back yard court served as a refuge from the problems he faced when he was one of the standout guards of a powerhouse team at Glendora High.

UC IRVINE (6-8, 3-1) at PACIFIC (10-8, 2-2), 7, KUCI-FM--Pacific was the preseason favorite to repeat as conference champion, but point-guard woes have hurt the Tigers. Earl Clark couldn't provide offense. Scott Thomason (5 feet 8) was a defensive liability. Since shooting guard Adam Jacobsen was moved in, things have been better. The Tigers are without forward Jason Williams for three weeks because of a broken left index finger.

Adam Jacobsen of Crescenta Valley High, the most prolific three-point shooter in Southern Section history, was held in check, but brother Brock came through in the clutch Tuesday to lead the Falcons to a 63-58 Pacific League victory over visiting Glendale. Brock Jacobsen, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, scored only six points, but his jump shot with two minutes to play gave Crescenta Valley (17-3, 5-2 in league play) the lead for good, 56-55.

* PACIFIC (12-8, 5-2) at LONG BEACH STATE (8-11, 3-4), 7:30 p.m.--The long-awaited Battle of Britain is tonight, when Pacific's 7-foot-1 center Michael Olowokandi from London comes to the Pyramid, where Andrew Betts, the 49ers' 7-foot-1 center from Ibstock, awaits. The edge would appear to go to Olowokandi, a more polished, more experienced player who averages 20 points and 11 rebounds. He also has the better support, with Corey Anders and Adam Jacobsen. Betts averages 19 points and 10 rebounds.
