The native of Enumclaw, Wash., is an All-Pac 10 center on the USC basketball team, which plays UCLA today at Pauley Pavilion. Welcome to the Big City: When I first got here, I went to a club over on Sunset, but that was the last of it. It was just too wild. I'm kind of a laid-back guy, and it was just too much for me. It was crazy, you know? There were transsexuals dancing on stage. It was just tripping me out. It was my third week here, and I just could not believe what I was seeing.

Kendrick Perkins didn't sleep much Tuesday night. The question of "why" wouldn't let him. So, the Boston Celtics center tossed, turned and wondered about the injury that will keep him out of Thursday's Game 7 against the Lakers in the NBA Finals. "Maybe I shouldn't have gone for that offensive rebound, maybe then things would've been different," he thought, mulling over the first-quarter play in Tuesday's Game 6 when he tore his medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee.

The Phoenix Suns say guard Leandro Barbosa underwent successful surgery Tuesday to remove a ganglion cyst in his right wrist and he's expected to be sidelined up to six weeks. Barbosa has struggled with the wrist problem since last summer when he sprained it on a fall while playing for the Brazilian national team. He had fluid drained from the wrist in November, sat out three games and took anti-inflammatory drugs but the problems returned. Barbosa is averaging 10.6 points this season but shooting only 42.2% from the field.

New Jersey rookie forward Brian Scalabrine, a former USC standout, will miss up to the first three months of the NBA season after breaking his right foot in the Nets' exhibition finale against Detroit on Friday night. "He was running upcourt and he heard a pop," Nets' President Rod Thorn said after the game. X-rays disclosed a break in the smallest of the five long bones in the foot that run from the ankle to the toes. Scalabrine was the 35th player taken in last summer's NBA draft.

After a day and a half to reflect on his performance against UC Santa Barbara, when he shot only six times, scoring only seven points, USC center Brian Scalabrine admitted Monday he is struggling. "I'm not sure what's going on with me," he said. "I'm not really getting into a flow right now. . . . "I know I haven't played well. I've got to turn it around and play better. I've done some good things defensively, but it's just real hard for me right now to get a flow in the offense."

A week after flu symptoms put forward Jarvis Turner out of action against Washington, center Brian Scalabrine has fallen ill. Scalabrine's illness could not have come at a worse time, with the Trojans scrambling for a berth in the National Invitation Tournament and playing their final two games on the road against Arizona and Arizona State. "We're sure [Scalabrine] is going to play Thursday, but what kind of energy is he going to have?" Coach Henry Bibby asked. "He's a guy we depend on."

A 2-3 record notwithstanding, USC has made it through one of the toughest weeks it will face this season in relatively good shape. The Trojans had only one bad loss among the three (Utah State) and, this being a week-to-week thing, there were no long-term injuries to their top six players. The only one hobbled is sixth man Jarvis Turner, who missed the last two games of the Maui Tournament because of a bad left foot but played sparingly against Duke in Saturday's John Wooden Classic.

Thirteen points is not a breakout game. And Brian Scalabrine knows it. The Trojans don't mind riding on the breakout season Sam Clancy appears to be having. But if they are going to compete with Stanford, Arizona and UCLA, another consistent scoring threat must emerge. Scalabrine began the season as a Wooden and Naismith candidate. When he averaged 27 points in the Yahoo! Sports Invitational tournament in Hawaii, the 6-foot-9 center looked ready for a big senior season.

Kansas will start a formidable big man in 7-foot center Eric Chenowith against USC tonight, but Coach Roy Williams doesn't expect to dominate the Trojans' frontline of Brian Scalabrine, Jarvis Turner and Jeff Trepagnier. "Both their big guys, Jarvis and Brian, can run the floor about as good as anyone I have seen around," Williams said. "Jeff is about as athletic as anyone I have ever had." The compliment might be of particular interest to Scalabrine when tipoff comes around.

Former USC forward Brian Scalabrine, a rookie with the New Jersey Nets, tried to bring something new to the NBA on Sunday--a game of shirts and skins. After being told by Net Coach Byron Scott to enter the game at the start of the second quarter, Scalabrine whipped off his warm-up top to discover he had forgotten to put on his jersey. Scalabrine ran off the court at the Meadowlands to the Nets' locker room. Less than a minute later, Scalabrine returned wearing his No.

Their college careers complete, now USC's Brian Scalabrine and Jeff Trepagnier and UCLA's Earl Watson are anticipating one of the biggest events of their lives--Wednesday's NBA draft. But they and other area draft-eligible players also face one of their biggest challenges--making an impact in the NBA. UCLA has had 62 players and USC 26 who have spent at last one season in the NBA.

Are they in? Are 20 wins and 10 Pacific 10 Conference victories enough to get USC a NCAA tournament slot for the first time since 1997? If the Trojans believe it, they weren't saying so on Friday. "Thursday's win [over Washington] brought us one step closer to our goal," said David Bluthenthal. "But I'm not going to be complacent. Winning on Thursday took some pressure off for [today]. "But it's still very important for us to get fourth place. If you're fifth, you're still on the bubble.

Brian Scalabrine routinely struggles with his game and, just as routinely, brings it back in line. Currently, the Trojan center is in an up cycle. The last 10 games, Scalabrine has been USC's most consistent scorer, averaging 17.8 points. Next highest is Sam Clancy, at 14.6 points. Scalabrine is also the only Trojan shooting better than 50%--he's at 50.8%--in those 10 games. Clancy continues taking the most shots for the Trojans at 12.7 a game. Scalabrine is next at 10.

Before Pacific 10 Conference play, Brian Scalabrine led the Trojans in scoring with 16 points a game. Over the last two weeks, however, he has averaged fewer than 12. Part of the problem may be USC's limited arsenal. Opponents have concentrated on shutting down the three-point shooters, Adam Spanich and Elias Ayuso, and sagging in on the red-headed center. "I just know that it's a lot harder to get a wide-open look than it was five games ago," Scalabrine said.
