Beverly Hills (10-4) is coming off a narrow 49-48 win over Crossroads and may be in for another tough one when it opens Ocean League play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Inglewood. Beverly Coach Jack Dyck said that Inglewood, the league's second-place team last year, is "the most balanced team they've ever had; you can't really key on one person. They're the most improved team in the league by far." Kenny Countryman, a Times All-Westside selection last year, has taken up where he left off.

Michelson, who coached at Hart for five seasons, said Monday he probably will not pursue legal action against the school because he had sought reinstatement only, not punitive damages.
