Cindy Brown, the first of two ABL players to defect to the WNBA, signed a two-year contract with her new league. Brown, 32, expects to be assigned to the expansion team in Detroit, her agent, Trisonya Thompson Abraham, said. "My understanding is the league will place Nikki McCray [the second ABL defector, who signed last month] in Washington," Abraham said. "They didn't want them both on the same team." Brown, a former All-American at Long Beach State, was the ABL's No. 4 scorer (17.

Cindy Brown's head hit the windshield and snapped down into the steering wheel. Her thoughts screamed inside her brain. "Oh my God, there goes my contract!" Her contract. She had played basketball for five months in Japan and, with bonuses, earned $125,000. Not bad for a 25-year-old who was three years out of college. She had been warned. A coach at Long Beach State told her to insure her body because it was her living. But she was in her best shape ever.

Sensitivity may be one of Cindy Brown's finest qualities. Along with Joan Bonvicini, her coach on the Cal State Long Beach women's basketball team, she has done volunteer work for the Blind Olympics, assisted disabled athletes in a half-marathon and helped wheelchair-bound patients in a series of sports events at Rancho Los Amigos Hospital in Downey, all within the past year.

A day after scoring 60 points against San Jose State, breaking the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. single-game record for women's basketball, Cal State Long Beach's Cindy Brown boarded a plane for New York and a press conference to promote next month's Final Four in Texas. The timing for such an event was only a coincidence, but it sure worked out well.

This season, for a major change, the best women's basketball player on the West Coast will not be found at USC. This will hardly amount to a major change of scenery, though, since she will be found at a school in the immediate vicinity. Cindy Brown of Cal State Long Beach, a 6-foot 2-inch forward, will be the center of attention, and not only in the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn., where she was named player of the year last season after averaging 24.4 points and 10.2 rebounds a game.

Old Dominion found out what nine other teams already knew about Cal State Long Beach's women's basketball team--they are so fast there is almost no defense that can keep up with the 49ers. So speedy is Long Beach, that Old Dominion Coach Marianne Stanley opted to run a zone defense against the fourth-ranked 49ers in a game in Long Beach's University Gym in front of 1,456 fans Sunday. The zone merely opened up the perimeter for Long Beach and at least two Long Beach players took advantage.
