The loss of playmaker Bryan Williams was at least three points too much for San Diego State's basketball team to overcome Saturday. Shortly before the game against Utah at the San Diego Sports Arena, Coach Jim Brandenburg announced that Williams had been suspended for the remainder of the season after being arrested Tuesday for petty theft. Without the man who makes their offense go, the Aztecs lost a hard-fought, 80-77 decision in front of 4,077 and a regional television audience.

The waiting might be the hardest part for free-agent center Brian Williams of the Clippers. While such free agents as Shaquille O'Neal got record-setting contracts last summer, Williams, coming off the best season of his NBA career, remains unsigned with the opening of training camp less than a week away. Clipper Coach Bill Fitch said if Williams isn't signed when camp opens next Friday at UC Santa Barbara, the Clippers won't sign him.

Something about the relationship between a basketball coach and his point guard often brings out the stubbornness in the both of them. The coach knows how he wants the team run; the guard knows how he can run it best. What often results is a season-long struggle to find common ground. Few probably understand the ups and downs of this relationship better than Bryan Williams, the San Diego State senior point guard who has had plenty of practice adjusting.

The stat sheet was making its familiar post-practice round among the San Diego State basketball players. Bryan Williams, the Aztecs' junior point guard, grabbed it for an instant, then passed it to the next player in disgust. He did not acknowledge the figure that showed him leading the Aztecs in average minutes played. He looked past the column that had him first on the team in assists. He did not mention the one that said he led the team in steals.

Sheriff's homicide detectives are seeking the killer of an 18-year-old Harbor City man. The victim, Anthony Ray Maynez, was shot in the head last Friday as he drove his truck on 228th Street near Van Deene Avenue in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County just west of the Harbor Freeway, said Sgt. Bryan Williams, a Sheriff's Department spokesman. The truck, with the fatally wounded Maynez at the wheel, struck a parked car, which crashed into two other parked cars, Williams said.

UC Irvine Coach Bill Mulligan, who has had his share of unhappy point guards in the past, may have another one this season. Sophomore Bryan Williams, a 5-foot 10-inch sophomore who set a school single-game record for assists last season, was in attendance at Thursday night's game against Montana, but not in uniform. Williams watched the game from the stands. Earlier in the week, Irvine had announced that Williams would be out indefinitely with a nagging back injury.

It took Bryan Williams, San Diego State's senior point guard, 3 years of waiting but he finally got his chance Friday night to show UC Irvine Coach Bill Mulligan what he let get away. Williams, who started as a freshman at Irvine only to transfer early the next season, paid back his old team by scoring 19 points in helping the Aztecs to a 102-88 victory in front of 3,529 at the San Diego Sports Arena.

The powerful narcotic popped up on the cultural grid around the turn of the millennium. A Texas producer-remixer named DJ Screw paid homage to its woozy, heavy-lidded high by dramatically slowing down beats and vocals to replicate the drug's sleepwalker euphoria. Among Southern rappers, the chemical mixture - called "sizzurp" on the street - soon became as ubiquitous as gold jewelry. This wasn't some exotic new hallucinogen. In fact, it was usually mixed with fruit soda and sipped from oversized plastic foam cups.

In the video to Pitbull's latest chart-topper, "Give Me Everything," he pours a glass of Voli vodka, careful to display the label; in the lyrics and video for his single, "Rain Over Me," he hails the vodka as the new "it" drink. In both clips, the bottle takes center stage as the rapper is swarmed by flashing neon lights, svelte models and crooning pop wingmen. Name-check references to the high life of liquor or drugs is nothing new to rap — a study released just weeks ago from the University of Pittsburgh and Dartmouth University found that for every hour that American teens listen to music, they hear more than three references to brand-name alcohol in rap/R&B/hip-hop lyrics.
