George McQuarn, who abruptly resigned as Cal State Fullerton's basketball coach less than a month before last season began, has accepted a job as an assistant to Coach Bill Frieder at Arizona State, McQuarn said Monday. McQuarn, who has worked in a contracting business the past six months, said in January that he did not miss coaching and did not plan to coach again. But he changed his mind during the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. tournament, he said. "I didn't really miss basketball during the regular season," McQuarn said.

Shamon Antrum has a simple explanation for scoring 19 points in leading Washington State to its second consecutive upset of a ranked team.

"I was open and the ball was just going in." The Cougars, who beat No. 17 California, 83-71, on Thursday, are 6-3 overall and 2-0 in the Pacific 10.

"I don't like parts," he said.
