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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Long Beach State traveled here locked and loaded for a shootout with high-flying Tennessee, and the game lived up to its billing, with no shortage of offense between two of the nation's highest-scoring teams. Too bad the 49ers forgot to pack their defense. No. 5-seeded Tennessee benefited from a bevy of wide-open outside shots and uncontested layups Friday in a first-round NCAA South Regional game at Nationwide Arena and dismantled 12th-seeded Long Beach State, 121-86.

Long Beach State and Tennessee are playing basketball here today in the first round of the South Regional at Nationwide Arena, but they are expecting a track meet. So are oddsmakers, who have placed the over/under line -- the total number of points expected in the game -- at 170. That's 16 points higher than any other first-round game this year. The 35-second clock has no place in this game, which pits teams that aren't afraid to shoot -- quickly. Tennessee is averaging 79.

Long Beach State has come a long way to make to the NCAA tournament, emerging from the depths of consecutive seasons in 2002-03 and 2003-04 when the 49ers went a combined 11-43 to a 24-7 record this season. Nobody knows better than Louis Darby, a fifth-year senior who has been through it all. Darby, a reserve forward, just shakes his head and smiles when he thinks about going to Columbus, Ohio, to face Tennessee in the first round Friday.

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?

At noon today, chances are Rick Lewis will jump for joy. That's when singer Mel Torme turns on KLON-FM's new transmitter, boosting the power of the 24-hour mostly mainstream jazz and news station at Cal State Long Beach from 1,200 to 8,000 watts. Though an increase of less than 7,000 watts is relatively small compared to the largest FM stations in the L.A. market, which average 50,000 to 75,000 watts, KLON general manager Lewis thinks it will make a big difference for the small station.

Long Beach State's appearance in the NCAA tournament will not have any bearing on whether Coach Larry Reynolds gets a contract extension, 49ers Athletic Director Vic Cegles said Tuesday. "As I have said from day one, we are going to evaluate the entire program at the end of the season," Cegles said. "That hasn't changed." Reynolds is in the final year of a five-year contract. The 49ers were 11-43 in his first two seasons but have gone 42-19 the last two seasons.
