There wasn't a dramatic turning point or a singular standout performance for the USC men's basketball team Tuesday night at the Galen Center. But there was a victory. The Trojans (2-0) were steadier with the basketball, smarter with their shot selections and came away with a 62-44 victory over Long Beach State (1-1). The most rousing play was the seldom-seen USC fastbreak that was finished with a Dewayne Dedmon dunk that gave the Trojans a 58-39 lead with 4 minutes 23 seconds to play.

Everyone agrees that coyotes -- at least two of them -- have recently been preying on the scores of feral cats that have lived for decades on the sprawling campus of Cal State Long Beach. The dispute is over which animals should have to go. University officials say the cats are attracting the coyotes, and it is the cats that need to be removed. That has outraged many cat lovers who fear the felines will be killed. They say the coyotes present the danger, so they should be evicted.

There was no hiding the truth, not by early in the second half. Not with UCLA grasping at air on defense. Not with the Bruins surrendering one easy basket after another on fastbreaks and uncontested dunks. Pure athleticism -- or lack thereof -- made the difference in their surprisingly lopsided 79-68 loss to Long Beach State at the 76 Classic on Sunday afternoon. The 49ers, a blur in bright yellow uniforms, could sense the disparity. "They were slow," forward T.J. Robinson said.

After Cal State Long Beach was defeated by UCLA Saturday night at Pauley Pavilion in the final match of the NCAA women's volleyball tournament, Long Beach Coach Brian Gimmillaro paced in front of the 49er bench, where his players sat rock still, blank looks on their faces. The 49ers, seemingly in control of the match after winning the first two games, had lost the last three and the match. Gimmillaro didn't seem to know what to say to his players. He said nothing.

Director Wes Craven has been responsible for scaring the living daylights out of people with horrifying thrillers such as "The Hills Have Eyes," "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and the "Scream" trilogy. But the 65-year-old director is somewhat frightened about teaching a directing workshop Wednesday as part of Cal State Long Beach's 10th annual WideScreen Film Festival.

C. Vivian Stringer, the Iowa women's basketball coach, is fond of telling her team, "Play the game, don't play individuals." Such is the abundance of talent on this team that the Hawkeyes took Stringer's philosophy and turned it into a No. 1 ranking for eight weeks and, nearly, an undefeated season.

James Cotton Jr. had an unusual request for the dozens of college basketball coaches who recruited him last year. The 6-foot-5 forward asked that he be redshirted in his freshman season. The request could not be met by several schools, including USC. Because Cotton, now a senior at St. John Bosco High in Bellflower, wanted to stay on the West Coast, his options were limited. He signed in November to attend Cal State Long Beach.

From No. 1 to No. 12, without even playing a match? That's how Volleyball Monthly magazine rates national champion Cal State Long Beach before the start of the 1990 women's volleyball season. The magazine's reasoning is not necessarily out of line, though, since Long Beach has only three starters back and has lost to graduation last season's nucleus in hitter Tara Cross, 5-foot-2 setter Sheri Sanders and middle blocker Trisonya Thompson. Still, some believe that No.

There is a sense of redemption on the UCLA softball team. A season, once on the brink, seems in sync. The Bruins, seeded second in the NCAA tournament, have won 15 of 16 games heading into this weekend's regional at Easton Stadium on the UCLA campus. Yet the chip on the shoulder remains. The Bruins (41-9) face Long Beach State (34-19) in the first round today at 3:30. Fresno State (36-18) faces Nevada Las Vegas (31-19) at 1.

Pulling into the parking lot on West Campus Drive at Cal State Long Beach, Dorothy Burstein figured that the cats would recognize the rumble of her Honda Accord. If that didn't perk up their ears, the sound of her popping open the car trunk surely would. "That means food," she said. Burstein is a volunteer with a small nonprofit group that for the last 10 years has been quietly feeding the dozens of feral cats that live on the fringe of the university campus.

In the finale of a two-month project that took her from the gallery to the streets and then to the sea, a Cal State Long Beach graduate student on Monday pedaled a swan boat from San Pedro to Long Beach, the last of eight human-powered means she employed to get to class. Sierra Brown, 28, launched the performance art project Oct. 1 with a 12-mile swim through Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors, crossing four ship channels in the process.

Many volleyball teams would have been happy with a 24-victory season and an NCAA tournament run to the regional semifinals. Long Beach State wasn't last season and among those disappointed was All-American middle blocker Cheryl Weaver. The 49ers' five-game loss to Hawaii last December served as a spur for a program used to being at the top in college volleyball. "The day after we got knocked out in the semifinals, everyone focused on this season," Weaver said.

How do you say goodby to Tara Cross and little Sheri Sanders, a hitter and setter who in four years at Cal State Long Beach developed into one of the most dangerous combinations in collegiate women's volleyball? To Trisonya Thompson, a middle blocker unselfishly adept anywhere on the court and skilled in all aspects of the game?

Faced with the prospect of trying to maintain success in the face of possible NCAA sanctions, Long Beach State officials introduced Dan Monson as the man for the job Saturday at a news conference announcing his hiring as the school's new men's basketball coach. "We got the right guy," Long Beach State Athletic Director Vic Cegles said. "You always want someone you feel has the integrity and the honesty, and the fact that he's done it before certainly was a factor for us."
