Greg Lee did two very adult things last year--he turned 30 and he got married. But Lee's the first to admit he's still really a kid at heart. "I still think I am probably 12 or 13 years old," explains the effusive host of PBS' hit kids' game show "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" "That time to me is a time of life which can be really exciting-- finding out who you are and what you are about," Lee says. "You want to eat everything up and soak everything up. I love that."

Kent Steffes grew up idolizing Jim Menges, and for two summers watched Menges and Greg Lee dominate the pro beach volleyball tour. Fresh off outstanding athletic careers at UCLA, Menges and Lee won a record 13 consecutive tournaments in 1975-76, a streak few figured would be matched. Then along came two other former Bruins--Steffes and San Clemente's Karch Kiraly.

To the average sports fan, it's not exactly Koufax and Drysdale returning to Chavez Ravine. But on the beach, the names Selznick and Vogelsang and Von Hagen and Menges also conjure visions of heroic summers long ago. They played volleyball. They were kings of the beach before the tour went pro and the "beach" was extended to Phoenix and Milwaukee and Boulder, Colo. Before light beer and cable television.

Dwight Clay stood alone in the right corner, the Notre Dame guard waving feverishly for the basketball. A day earlier it had been quiet in the near-empty Athletic & Convocation Center when Notre Dame's brash young coach, Digger Phelps, surprised his players by bringing ladders onto the court to practice cutting down the nets. Now a wildly partisan crowd was on its feet in the sold-out arena on the Notre Dame campus. The Irish, in the midst of a frantic rally, had scored 10 consecutive points to pull to within a point of the seemingly invincible UCLA Bruins — the seven-time defending national champion UCLA Bruins — with less than a minute to play.

It was the 13th consecutive victory for Kiraly and Steffes, which ties the record for consecutive victories, set by Greg Lee and Jim Menges in 1975-76. Steffes has been in 19 of 20 finals and has 16 victories, which ties the season record set by Smith and Stoklos in 1987.

John Wooden, the UCLA basketball coach who became an icon of American sports while guiding the Bruins to an unprecedented 10 national championships in the 1960s and '70s and remained in the spotlight during retirement with his "Pyramid of Success" motivational program, has died. He was 99. Wooden died Friday evening of natural causes at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the university announced. He had been hospitalized since last week for dehydration. Though the stern, dignified Midwesterner's fame extended beyond the sports world, it was Wooden's achievements during 27 seasons at UCLA that put him in the company of such legendary coaches as the Green Bay Packers' Vince Lombardi and Notre Dame's Knute Rockne.

In late January, Larry Farmer was still in Kuwait, where he coaches and oversees the development of basketball. But after returning to Los Angeles on Jan. 29, he figured it was time to get going on something he had wanted to pursue for some time--broadcasting. His previous experience consisted of two 1987 Denver Nugget telecasts when, on Feb. 8, he worked as a commentator on an ESPN telecast of a Cal State Long Beach-Nevada Las Vegas game. CBS was impressed.
