In their quest to continue to change the team's culture, the Clippers have hired highly-thought-of Gerald Madkins to be the team's director of basketball operations, said NBA executives Friday who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Madkins, who has worked in the NBA for 10 years, will work in the front office alongside Gary Sacks, who was recently named the Clippers' general manager. Madkins spent the last two seasons with the New Orleans Hornets as their director of player personnel.

Gerald Madkins, a sophomore guard who was expected to start for the UCLA basketball team, will miss the season because of injuries he suffered last month in an on-campus traffic accident, Coach Jim Harrick said Tuesday. "I'm definitely redshirting," said Madkins, who was injured when the moped he was riding collided with a car. He was released Sunday after almost three weeks in the UCLA Medical Center.

UCLA guard Gerald Madkins was overcome with emotion after the Bruins ended Arizona's 71-game home winning streak by beating the No. 6 Wildcats, 89-87, at McKale Center Saturday. Madkins fell to the court and writhed in ecstasy after the second-ranked Bruins ended the longest current winning streak in college basketball. "I just lost it," Madkins said of his wild celebration. "I felt bad after I got up because I'd heard that you should act like you've won before.

As the sunset dimmed the Western sky above Westwood, Gerald Madkins, UCLA basketball player, went humming along campus on the little-bitty moped cycle he had borrowed from his extra-large teammate, Kevin Walker. A friend, visiting from his hometown of Merced, sat perched on the back of the bike, her arms squeezing his sides. Practically from nowhere, a small automobile, a Pontiac Fiero, appeared right in front of them. The woman behind the wheel did not even have time to swerve.

UCLA's basketball team betrays itself with the good spurts. The lapses into teamwork. The quick sprints when it shows signs of life. If it weren't for those little spurts, this team could be declared hopeless, and its fans could start talking about next season. As it is, there is some reason for hope. UCLA pulled itself together long enough Monday night to build a 22-point lead that held up for a 74-65 victory over Cal State Fullerton.

The worst thing that ever happened to Gerald Madkins might have been the best thing that could have happened to this season's UCLA basketball team. If Madkins hadn't been involved in a traffic accident three years ago, suffering pelvic injuries so serious that they sidelined him for an entire season and possibly slowed him a step or two, he might be playing in the NBA.

UCLA won't be in Minneapolis this weekend for the Final Four. And the Bruins won't soon forget their 106-79 loss to Indiana on Saturday at Albuquerque, N.M., in the West Regional final, the most lopsided drubbing by a top-seeded team since the NCAA tournament selection committee started seeding teams in 1979. Before Saturday, it was an excellent season in Westwood: --UCLA won the Pacific 10 Conference championship for the first time since 1987, ending Arizona's run of four consecutive titles.

The UCLA basketball team will be without its captain through the holidays. Senior guard Gerald Madkins will be sidelined for at least two weeks after sustaining a broken left hand during Saturday night's 84-64 victory over San Diego State, UCLA said Monday. A team leader and defensive stopper, Madkins might not be able to play until after the third-ranked Bruins play second-ranked Arizona on Jan. 11 at Tucson. "That's a wait-and-see proposition," assistant coach Brad Holland said.

Blown out by UCLA last season at Pauley Pavilion, intrepid Pepperdine ventured into Westwood again Saturday night with a more experienced, more highly regarded team. The Waves suffered the same fate as a year ago and headed back to Malibu. The Bruins embarrassed them, 98-58, in front of 10,413. "We were awful and they were tremendous," Pepperdine Coach Tom Asbury said. "I don't know what you say after a debacle like that." Asbury must have thought he was looking at videotape.

It was one year ago this coming Tuesday that Gerald Madkins steered a moped through the UCLA campus, heading toward Westwood Village to see a movie. He never made it. Instead, he spent the night--and the next several weeks--in the UCLA Medical Center. Madkins and his moped collided head-on with a car, leaving the UCLA basketball player with multiple fractures of his pelvis. While in the hospital, Madkins wondered if he would walk again, never mind dunking in Pauley Pavilion.
