The Clippers made their last cuts Monday, releasing Marvin Andrews, Rory Sparrow and Clinton Smith. Charles Smith, who had knee surgery Oct. 19, and Bo Kimble, still recovering from a July stress fracture in his left foot, will be put on the injured list soon, opening spots for free agents Tony Brown and Lanard Copeland as temporary replacements. Brown started last season with the Lakers and finished with the Utah Jazz.

Clinton Ransey scored 27 points and Cleveland State used non-stop pressure defense to upset No. 14 Indiana 83-79 Friday in the first round of the NCAA East Regional.

James Mitsch, the second-ranking official in Hawthorne, has been suspended for 30 days, the maximum period, without pay. City Manager Kenneth Jue said he imposed the penalty but declined to provide the reasons, saying that to do so would be an invasion of Mitsch's privacy. In an earlier interview, however, Jue said it was "more than likely" that he would give Mitsch a 30-day suspension because Mitsch had been insubordinate.

The legend of David Robinson got one game larger Friday night. The Lilliputians from Cleveland State tried to pull him down, even venturing the occasional roll block, only to see him rise again, poke his head through the clouds and punch their tickets for them. Back to Lilliput, guys. Robinson scored 22 points, with 14 rebounds and 9 blocked shots, and hit the layup on an in-bounds play with :06 left that gave Navy a 71-70 victory and a berth in the East regional final against No. 1-ranked Duke.
