It was desperation time for the USC basketball team Saturday, and the Trojans responded with a 65-60 victory over Washington State at the Sports Arena. Even though the game was ragged at times, USC Coach George Raveling didn't knock any aspects of it. "There were far more positive things than negative," Raveling said. "When you're in the depths of despair like us, the only way out is with a win."

My age is 53 and I've never had a front-row seat at Dodger Stadium. Like young Josh Nelson [Viewpoint, May 4], I too was at the Dodger-Cub game on the afternoon of April 28.
