College enlightens and expands horizons. UCLA volleyball player Dan Landry won't argue. A history major, Landry has learned how detailed the NCAA rule book can be. He has learned about long lines, having waited in them at the financial aid office. And he has even learned a trade--delivering muffins to local grocery stores. Landry, a starter for the fourth-ranked Bruins, moonlights as a delivery man for a Hawthorne baked goods distributor.

The crowd of 2,085 that packed the bleachers at Matador Gymnasium on Wednesday night couldn't help the fourth-ranked Cal State Northridge volleyball team against No. 1-ranked UCLA. The Matadors' poor play from the outset took the crowd out of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation match as CSUN fell quietly and meekly, 15-3, 15-10, 15-5. "They buried us," Northridge middle blocker Coley Kyman said. "A lot of people came to see us play. . . . I'm sorry we disappointed them."

With the victory, the Bruins advanced to the national tournament for the first time since winning the national championship in 1989 at Pauley Pavilion.

The U.S. men's Olympic volleyball team showed Argentina what it can do when it has the cheering, flag-waving crowd on its side. Even when Argentina made a run in the third set, closing a seven-point lead to one, Team USA refused to let the momentum change. It held on to sweep Argentina, 15-7, 15-8, 15-11, on Tuesday at Athens, Ga., to improve to 2-0 in Pool A. "If we can get out of here in three, we'll take it," captain Bob Ctvrtlik said. "It is a game of emotion.

In a match that seemed to be little more than a formality, the top-ranked UCLA men's volleyball team easily defeated Ohio State, 15-4, 15-4, 15-2, Friday night in the semifinals of the NCAA Final Four at Pauley Pavilion. UCLA, the most dominant team in the sport with 13 NCAA championships, is making its first appearance in the Final Four since 1989. Cal State Northridge defeated Penn State in the other semifinal, so a Southern California team will win the title for the 24th consecutive season.

A knee injury sustained in the high jump left Shelia Burrell, a former resident of Reseda, in 30th place in the heptathlon after the first day of competition Saturday at Sydney. Burrell, an assistant track coach at Cal State Northridge last year, was in third place with 1,080 points after running the 100-meter high hurdles in 13.30 to open the competition. But she injured her knee on her first--and only attempt--in the high jump when she caught a spike on the high jump apron.

The UCLA men's volleyball team, ranked second nationally, will open its season by playing host to UC San Diego at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the John Wooden Center. Bruin Coach Al Scates has four starters returning from last year's team, which finished 16-9 and won its second consecutive DeGroot Division title in the Western Intercollegiate Volleyball Assn.

Second-ranked Cal State Long Beach is the underdog with 28 victories and four losses. No. 6 UCLA is the favorite with 16 victories, eight losses. This makes sense only in NCAA men's volleyball. Bruin volleyball under Coach Al Scates carries a mystique similar to that of John Wooden in basketball. UCLA has historically been near unbeatable when it counts most. Witness the Bruins' 20-0 record in NCAA playoff matches since 1980. Long Beach would like to keep safe UCLA's streak of NCAA victories.

Ray Ratelle, the Cal State Long Beach men's volleyball coach worried out loud two weeks ago, even though his No. 1-ranked 49ers were on a roll. "We're doing all right now, but anything can happen," Ratelle said. "It only takes one match." It happened Wednesday night when No. 3 Pepperdine upset the 49ers, 15-13, 15-13, 11-15, 17-16, in the Western Intercollegiate Volleyball Assn. match of divisional champions at UC Irvine.
