A few years ago I would have savored this opportunity to kick the man when his program is down, to revel in the misfortunes that have befallen Lute Olson and the Arizona Wildcats as they limp into today's Pacific 10 Conference semifinal game against UCLA. I used to enjoy bashing Olson, loved watching that smirk get wiped from his face. But I turned around and he became a sympathetic figure to me with the dignified way he handled losing his wife to ovarian cancer on Jan. 1, 2001.

How good was Westchester this season? One local coach said the Comets could have beaten some college teams. Westchester's run to the state championship culminated in a game against Oakland Tech at Sacramento's Arco Arena on March 23. The players waited to take the court before the game, right, but the high-flying Comets put on a show during warmups, above, and went on to complete their 32-2 season with an 80-75 victory. Hassan Adams, bottom left, and Brandon Heath were of particular interest to ESPN cameras before the game for a show titled "Sidelines: LA Hoops," and Arizona Coach Lute Olson, below, no stranger when it comes to recruiting local players, showed up for a game against Fairfax in January to watch Adams, who will be a Wildcat next season.

One of Coach Henry Bibby's many maxims is that his bench players are the most important members of his basketball team. The Trojans helped Bibby prove his point in last weekend's home split with Arizona and Arizona State. "I'm not wrong too much," Bibby said Monday after practice. "The bench makes a difference in a game. I think our bench [players] are as good as any starters that are out there, when they play and they have their heads in the game the way they did on Saturday night."

Hassan Adams and Brandon Roy lived up to their billing Saturday: They were their teams' best players, in a taut, top-flight game that demanded nothing less. Adams scored a career-high 32 points -- including eight points and consecutive three-point baskets in the two overtimes -- to trump Roy's career-high-tying 35 as Arizona rallied to a 96-95 victory over No. 7 Washington in a Pacific 10 Conference game.

The Westchester High guard sprinted toward the basket on a three-on-one fast break. An uncontested layup was his for the taking, but instead he lobbed the ball to teammate Hassan Adams, who slammed home a rim-rattling dunk. Coach Ed Azzam, watching from the sideline, immediately blew his whistle to halt the practice. "That was not a smart play," Azzam barked. Countered the guard: "Coach, I know, but it's Hassan." He had a point.
