Winning basketball championships and sending players off to major colleges has become almost second nature at some high schools. For the past 27 seasons, every senior on the basketball team at DeMatha High in Hyattsville, Md., including the reserves, has been offered a college athletic scholarship. Coach Morgan Wootten has won 818 games in 31 seasons at DeMatha and five times the Stags have been voted national high school champions. At Crenshaw High in Los Angeles, students dubbed the gym "Six Flags" after the Cougars won their sixth City championship in 1980.

UC Irvine took its turn at beating up on Cal State Fullerton, which has lost 10 consecutive games and its coach, Bob Hawking, who resigned last week. The third-longest losing streak in school history has left the Fullerton players grumbling about the program. "This school doesn't have anything to offer high quality players," said forward Ike Harmon, who scored 28 points Wednesday in an 88-71 loss before an announced crowd of 812 at Titan Gym.

An attorney for former Simi Valley High basketball Coach Bob Hawking has filed suit against attorneys Jerry Roth and Robert Young and former UCLA assistant coach Jack Hirsch for allegedly leaking privileged information. The suit, filed Tuesday in L.A Superior Court for unspecified damages, alleges that Roth, Young and Hirsch gave confidential information to The Times and the authors of the book "Raw Recruits."

Late last season, when Cal State Fullerton and Long Beach State played in the Pyramid, the Titans won their fourth consecutive game against the 49ers and Long Beach Coach Wayne Morgan was beginning to feel some heat. A year later, things are a lot different. Morgan's 49ers clinched first place in the Big West Conference's Western Division Thursday night with an 88-75 victory over the Titans, a day after Bob Hawking resigned as Fullerton coach effective at the end of the season.

Bob Hawking announced his resignation Wednesday as Cal State Fullerton's coach effective at the end of the season. The Titans are 8-15 with four regular-season games remaining and Hawking has a 59-99 record since he took over in 1994-95. Hawking, a former coach at Simi Valley High for 14 years, said he hopes to remain in coaching. He was an assistant at Pepperdine and UC Davis before joining Fullerton.

Bob Hawking's new contract as Cal State Fullerton men's basketball coach is a two-year extension that takes him through the 1999-2000 season, a university official said Friday. Judith Anderson, university executive vice president, also said Hawking's base salary is slightly more than $82,000 a year. Hawking signed the contract Wednesday, but terms were not disclosed. Hawking said he was "very satisfied with the contract." Hawking's old three-year contract expired March 31.

Bob Hawking said Monday he has been offered a contract to return as men's basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton. "I'm still looking at details of the contract at this point," Hawking said, adding that he plans to meet with Athletic Director John Easterbrook when Easterbrook returns this week from the NCAA tournament in San Antonio. Hawking, whose three-year contract was due to expire today, declined to discuss details of the contract offer.

Bob Hawking, Don MacLean's coach at Simi Valley High, was named Cal State Fullerton's interim basketball coach Thursday, fulfilling what he called a lifelong dream to run a Division I program. John Easterbrook, in his third day as Fullerton athletic director, said he thought it was important to move quickly to replace former coach Brad Holland, who left Monday for the University of San Diego.

Bob Hawking stepped up in class Wednesday when Pepperdine announced that the former Simi Valley High basketball coach had joined the Waves as a part-time assistant. "I'm excited about the chance to be in the Pepperdine program," Hawking said. "And I'm tremendously focused on learning basketball at the collegiate level because there definitely is a big difference."

Cal State Fullerton should have one of the Big West Conference's top players this season in Ike Harmon. The question is whether the supporting cast will be strong enough to carry the Titans to their first winning season since 1992-93. Fullerton was 12-16 last season, 6-10 in the Big West. Harmon, a 6-foot-7 junior forward, averaged 15.3 points and 6.4 rebounds in his first college season after sitting out a season as a Proposition 48 nonqualifier.

Butch Hawking says the telephone calls with his father have been less frequent in the last several weeks. "We've talked, but the conversations seemed to have gotten a lot shorter," he said. Apparently, neither wants to risk providing any inside information to the other. It's all part of the friendly little family rivalry building for Monday night, when Coach Bob Hawking's Cal State Fullerton men's basketball team plays at Kansas State, a team his son helps coach.

Cal State Fullerton made the right move when it gave Bob Hawking a new two-year contract as men's basketball coach. Based on the problems Hawking faced when he took over four years ago after Brad Holland's quick exit for San Diego, Hawking deserved more time to get the program back on the winning track. It isn't easy attracting talented players to a program that hasn't made an NCAA tournament appearance in 20 years and has an outdated facility.
