For nine days, Lindsay Davenport walked around the grounds of the National Tennis Center with about as little fanfare as possible for a former U.S. Open winner. Especially one who's a legitimate threat to win it again. There has been so much attention devoted to everyone else. The Williams sisters because of the way they've been dominating the WTA Tour this summer. Jelena Dokic because her father went wacko over a high-cost piece of salmon. Anna Kournikova because . . . she's Anna Kournikova.

Beating anyone in February, even a hated rival, doesn't mean that much in basketball. If you're talking hoops, the conversation really starts in March, so the most relevant part of UCLA's 70-65 victory over USC is that Darren Collison played a big part in it. Point guards are essential to a team's NCAA tournament hopes and, after a shaky start, Collison, who led the Bruins with 17 points, looked ready to take on the responsibility.

The toughest competitor I ever met had no jump shot to speak of, couldn't hit the curveball and would probably have had trouble making a three-foot putt. The toughest competitor I ever met stood 5 feet 4 and, in recent days, struggled to hit triple digits on the scale. The toughest competitor I ever met was my mom, Elizabeth Oberstein. I'd rather spend 48 minutes guarding Shaq in the low post, or stand in the batter's box against Randy Johnson, than go through what she endured.

We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

I thought the article comparing USC baseball to UCLA basketball [J.A. Adande's column, June 8] was quite apt. There is one major difference. Rod Dedeaux never needed Sam Gilbert. GILBERT R. COLEMAN Reno

So Pete Carroll and USC are willing to let the "racist joke" slide ["Racism issue raised," March 9]. The fact that thoughts and images such as these are being put forth -- even in a joking manner -- is sad, scary and unfortunate. The fact that an institution of supposed higher learning essentially condones it by providing no discipline or consequences whatsoever is unconscionable! TONY REED West Hills J.A. Adande has redefined "racist" to include anybody who disagrees with J.A. Adande.

Regarding J.A. Adande's "Just Asking" column [Nov. 9], what do John Glenn, Newt Gingrich and the color of the iMac computer have to do with sports? Nothing! Have you forgotten what section your column is in? Stick with sports! TOMMY CHENG Torrance
