Jeff Trepagnier has put his problems with the NCAA aside, but his season is still not trouble free. The stress fracture in his left foot that caused Trepagnier to miss the first three games of the season has not healed completely. And Trepagnier aggravated that injury when he turned his right ankle in Thursday's game against Washington State. Coach Henry Bibby said Trepagnier may need surgery after the season.

David Bluthenthal, on behalf of all USC fans I'd like to apologize to you for Henry Bibby ruining the last moments of your stellar college career. People like you do not deserve to be "taught a lesson" in a game of that magnitude; people like you deserve to be on the floor giving your team a chance to win as you have so many times before. As you leave USC and probably the game of basketball, try to remember there are people like Henry Bibby out there. Stay away from them. Oliver Lang Los Angeles I don't buy the "tired Trojans" who peaked early during the Pac-10 tournament.

Despite having another subpar game--no points (missing all three shots) and three rebounds before fouling out--David Bluthenthal probably will remain in the starting lineup against Boston College. "Dave will start right now in my mind," Coach Henry Bibby said. "You're going to have games where you aren't good. But the good part of this, and I told Dave this last night, is you have another game to prepare for. So you can't live through the game you didn't play well in.

What happened: Mostly bad stuff for the Trojans. They were fortunate they were behind only 37-28, because it could have been worse than that. You name it, it happened ... early foul trouble for Sam Clancy, poor team defense, inadequate shot selection, poor ballhandling. Henry Bibby had to sit there with a really pained expression on his face, as though he had been forced to down one of those shards of mushy red stuff they sold as hot dogs at the concession stands.

Westchester High, winner of the City Section 4-A boys' basketball title and the Division I state championship, placed four players on the 20-member All-City 4-A team, including forward David Bluthenthal, who was named player of the year. A panel of Southland sportswriters selected teams for the 4-A and 3-A divisions based on coaches' nominations and personal observations. Allen Kordich of San Pedro was selected 3-A player of the year. The 4-A team features 17 seniors and three juniors.

Going into the Yahoo! Sports Invitational tournament in Hawaii, David Bluthenthal was USC's hottest player, averaging 18.4 points and shooting 54.5% from the field. But in the last five games, Bluthenthal has hit a cold streak, making only 37% of his shots (18 of 49). His scoring average has dipped to 14.4. Bluthenthal said he's not in a slump, though. Instead, he said, he got out of his practice routine during the three-day tournament in Hawaii and it affected his rhythm.

He remains the least publicized and most overlooked player among the Trojans' starters, but David Bluthenthal is off to a red-hot start for 13th-ranked USC. After seven games, Bluthenthal leads the Trojans in scoring (18.4) and rebounding (9.1). Those figures are an increase from last season, when Bluthenthal averaged 13.9 and 8.3, respectively. He is also the team's best free-throw shooter, making 17 of 21 attempts (81%), and has the Trojans' highest field-goal percentage (54.5%).

You forgive the mistakes because they play so hard. You forgive the sloppiness because they never let the bad things make them give up or give in. You forgive them the silly fouls and "Oh, no!" shots because of the "Oh, my!" rebounds from Sam Clancy and "Oh, yeah!" three-point baskets from David Bluthenthal and the "Oh, wow!" fireworks from freshman Errick Craven. USC defeated Stanford, 77-58, Thursday night at Maples Pavilion. It was the worst home loss for the Cardinal in nine seasons.

David Bluthenthal, enduring an up-and-down season, acknowledged Monday that his senior year as a Trojan has been his most exasperating campaign. "My freshman year was frustrating, but I was a freshman. I accepted it and I learned a lot," said the small forward, who left USC's 73-69 loss at Oregon Saturday without speaking to reporters after going two for 11 from the field and missing a potential game-winning three-point shot with four seconds to play.

If David Bluthenthal had appeared on the old "What's My Line?" TV show, the panel might have tabbed him as a basketball player simply because he is tall. These days, however, few beyond the core fan base at USC or late-night cable hoop fanatics would recognize the 6-foot-7, 225-pound junior as the starting small forward at USC. USC's offense mostly starts and finishes with Sam Clancy, Brian Scalabrine and Brandon Granville.

David Bluthenthal didn't start the game for USC against Oregon on Saturday. But once he got in, he might have saved the Trojans' season, as far as an NCAA tournament bid is concerned. The 6-foot-7 junior forward had 29 points, equaling his career high. His fifth three-point basket--also tying a career high--opened the scoring in overtime, gave the Trojans the lead for good, and sparked USC to a badly needed 87-80 victory over the Ducks before 9,087 at McArthur Court.
