Hank Iba, who coached the U.S. Olympic basketball team to two gold medals and guided Oklahoma State to two national championships, died Friday of heart failure in Stillwater, Okla. He was 88. "There's no question that the game lost one of its teaching giants," USC Coach George Raveling said. "Many of the defensive concepts you see utilized today by high school, junior college and college coaches originated in his head." John Wooden, who coached UCLA to 10 NCAA titles, agreed.

UCLA (3-2) vs. Oklahoma St. (4-1) 4:30 p.m. Channel 9, KXTA (1150) * Oklahoma State: The 4-1 Cowboys like to argue they aren't a purely defensive team, but recent victories over Marquette (57-54) and Hawaii (58-37) don't help their case much. This is the school where Hank Iba once coached and the team adheres to time-honored concepts of deliberate offense and tenacious play when the opponent has the ball.

In his last two college basketball seasons, 6-foot-10 Bob Kurland led Oklahoma A&M, now Oklahoma State, to the 1945 and 1946 NCAA championships. He was named MVP in both tournaments, the first player to win the honor twice in a row. Today, those credentials would be worth a dazzling contract in the NBA. At that time, Kurland had two options but neither of them would make him an instant millionaire.

Let's see if I understand this. At the beginning of the week, UCLA was 15-6, and USC was 16-6 (comparable records), but UCLA was 8-2 in conference play, while USC was 6-4. The Bruins had an RPI ranking of 8, based on the second-strongest schedule in the country, and USC came in at 20th. UCLA just last week upset the No. 1 team in the country. In head-to-head competition, the Bruins have swept the season series against the Trojans, and yet the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll has ranked USC at 23rd while once again completely overlooking the Bruins.

Karl Malone, taken by the Utah Jazz with the 13th pick of the 1985 NBA draft, recalled his first conversation with Frank Layden, who was the team's coach. "He asked me if I knew much about Utah," Malone told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I told him I didn't, but that I heard it was a beautiful city. "There was silence. Frank said, 'Son, I don't know where you come from, but Utah is a state, not a city.' "We both laughed." Trivia time: Who was taken before Malone in the 1985 draft?
