Gabe Pruitt and Lodrick Stewart showed up a tad late to the Sports Arena on Thursday night. Pruitt's car had a flat tire. No doubt California would like to have slashed all four. Pruitt and Stewart put on a show against the Golden Bears, leading the Trojans out of the Pacific 10 Conference basement, while ushering Cal into it, with an impressive 83-66 victory before 3,127. "It was kinda scary; I had never had a flat tire before," said Pruitt, who was giving Stewart a ride to the game.

Re "Three Wise Men and Their Journey to Buy Gifts" [Dec. 9]: Chris Erskine is not alone with the transmission and dryer breaking down at the same time. At the risk of sounding very L.A. and "Grove-ish" .... Mercury is in retrograde until Sunday, and these are the things that go wrong during this period. Consider backing up your computer and avoid traveling until after Sunday. Just thought you should know.

Orlando Esquivel and Javier Rivera saw the family standing next to their car on the side of Baja California's coastal highway. Lights flashing, they pulled over and jumped out of their bright green Dodge Ram. Esquivel squatted down to replace the car's flat tire while Rivera shielded the family from traffic. Minutes later, the men were finished, back in their truck and headed down the road, without having received even a peso.

In 1989, Ricky Rudd won the first NASCAR race at Sears Point Raceway, one of two road courses on the Winston Cup schedule. On Sunday, Rudd won the first NASCAR race at Infineon Raceway, as of Saturday the new name for the picturesque, two-mile hillside circuit in Sonoma Valley that has been called Sears Point all these years. It wasn't easy, but it was unexpected.

It is so nice to have the opportunity to award kudos to our police and other protection agencies, so I wish to tell you about a flat tire turning into a pleasant experience. On Nov. 11 about 1 p.m., making the transition from California 23 to the 101 Freeway just west of the Hampshire exit, a man and a woman in another car sounded their horn repeatedly to let me know the tire was going flat. My passenger urged me to get to a freeway phone, which I was able to do. The space off the freeway was adequate to be out of harm's way and I received an immediate response when I picked up the receiver.

News item: Baron Davis is held out of the starting lineup for being late to a UCLA shoot-around because he had car trouble. Question: Why is Baron Davis being punished? It's Jim Harrick's fault for giving him a piece of junk for a car. TONY SIRACUSA Pasadena
