We interrupt this rerun to bring you some new developments in the Crenshaw-Manual Arts basketball rivalry of 1988, already two games old heading into Saturday night's game at the Sports Arena to decide Southern California's Division I representative in the State basketball final: --A roller-coast ride, thrilling to the end, before a crowd of only 7,254, about 5,000 fewer than when the teams played for the City 4-A title last Friday. --A game built on improbability and emotion as much as talent.

Several shots were fired across the athletic fields at Polytechnic High School in an apparent drive-by shooting Wednesday, but no injuries were reported, authorities said. There were no witnesses to the shooting, which occurred around 2:10 p.m., but students told police they saw a man running from the campus shortly afterward, said Los Angeles Police Sgt. Tom Toutant. The school is in the 12400 block of Roscoe Boulevard.

The race for the City Section boys' basketball championship was thought to be wide-open when the season began at the end of November. Not much has changed now that the regular season is complete. Fairfax (22-5) is the top-seeded team in the playoffs, sitting atop a 16-team Championship division bracket that is full of contenders. The playoffs begin Friday. The City championship games will be played March 5 at Pauley Pavilion.

Tackling the first contentious issue of the race, candidates for the 7th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council staked out positions Tuesday in the debate over whether a high school should be built on the old Gemco site. To the applause of more than 100 Neighborhood Watch volunteers, candidates Corinne Sanchez, Ollie McCaulley and Raul Godinez II announced their opposition to a proposal to build a high school on the 12-acre site of a former shopping center in Arleta.

It was 1979. No, it was about 50 years ago. No, make that 1492. That's when Christopher Columbus set foot in what is now the Americas, students said Monday during lunch at Christopher Columbus Middle School in Canoga Park. Five hundred and seven years after Columbus set sail for India and landed in the so-called New World, students were a little hazy on the year, but otherwise solid on the history of their school's namesake.

Los Angeles schools Supt. Roy Romer is exploring a deal to buy the downtown headquarters of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and turn it into a school that could relieve overcrowding in the Belmont area. The chamber building would be combined with a district property across the street to create a campus that could serve up to 1,500 students. If the deal goes through and the site clears environmental reviews, the school could open as early as next September, one district official said.

The Los Angeles school construction program got a boost Wednesday when the state agency that distributes funds set aside $450 million for California's most overcrowded school districts. The money, about a third of the remaining construction funds from the 1998 state school bond, will not be available until June 2002, about the time that L.A. Unified officials expect to submit applications for several high school projects.

Even if every Los Angeles high school converts to a year-round schedule and the district completes nearly $2 billion in new construction, there still won't be enough seats for every high school student, school officials are warning. In the direst assessment yet of the district's facilities crisis, a report to be delivered to the Board of Education on Tuesday projects a shortfall of 2,000 to 5,000 seats in a few years even under the most optimistic scenario.
