Until the afternoon of Jan. 29, the thought of George McQuarn retiring from coaching was like Tommy Lasorda saying he didn't want to manage the Dodgers . . . or was too full for another egg roll. McQuarn, 44, is in his sixth season as Cal State Fullerton basketball coach, and in every season it has been obvious that he was a coach because he was destined to be. He was drill sergeant, father figure and supreme motivator. He exuded an air of intensity, discipline and dedication.

It isn't easy for visitors to win basketball games at Selland Arena. This is the place the locals call Grant's Tomb . . . where opponents come to get buried. It happened again Thursday night. Fresno State beat UC Irvine, 53-48, before 10,132 mostly red-clad spectators. Marvin Carter and Leo Walker hit four free throws in the final 34 seconds, enabling the Bulldogs to hold a lead that, once so secure, had turned precarious. Fresno State is 2-1 in Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. play and 9-5 overall.

This was not Boyd Grant basketball as you remember it. Boyd Grant basketball in his days at Fresno State was deliberate basketball. It was a matchup zone defense and an almost tediously patient offense. It was a score in the 50s and--often enough--a Fresno State victory. Cal State Fullerton took its undefeated team into Colorado State's Moby Arena Monday and ran into a different breed of team.

The margin of loss was nearly identical, but the difference between Cal State Northridge's first and second Division I games was like night and day. This time, the Matadors' running game was slowed and the experience of guards Lynn Tryon and Mark Meredith led Colorado State past Northridge, 104-79, before 6,472 Saturday night at Moby Arena. Tryon scored a career-high 30 points, including four three-pointers, and Meredith had 22 points, also making four three-point baskets.

Colorado State forward Mike Mitchell, snubbed in the NBA draft Wednesday, will have a tryout with the Boston Celtics, according to his agent. The 6-foot-8 Mitchell was invited to the Celtics' July 21 camp, and his agent, Fred Slaughter of Santa Monica, began negotiations with the team Thursday. Mitchell, who played for Mater Dei High School, led Colorado State in scoring (19.5 points per game), rebounding (6.7) and steals (2.0) last season.
