Frustration was Jacque Vaughn's companion the first few times he went one-on-one against his older brother, James. The then 13-year-old Jacque tried a variety of moves to make headway in his attack. He went forward, sideways, diagonally and back. Nothing worked. Every direction he chose, his brother was there to cut him off. "He started schooling me," Jacque said. "Really beating me bad."

The Orlando Magic hired Jacque Vaughn , 37, as its head coach Saturday, continuing the youth movement of the basketball operations department after the hiring of 30-year-old General Manager Rob Hennigan last month. Vaughn becomes the 10th coach in team history and replaces Stan Van Gundy , who was fired despite compiling a 259-135 regular-season record, franchise-best .657 winning percentage and a 31-28 playoff record. "As we navigated through our coaching search, we quickly saw that Jacque's spirit and leadership strengths made him the clear choice," Hennigan said in a statement.

Jacque Vaughn took the question in stride. After all, the Atlanta Hawk point guard had been asked plenty of times over the past month and a half. How does a former first-round draft pick and the one-time heir apparent to John Stockton miss 22 straight shots? "I think I was taking good shots, but they just weren't going down," Vaughn said patiently. But Jacque, 22 in a row? All at the beginning of your first season with the Hawks? "Well, it was over four games.

When Indiana Coach Bob Knight visited Jacque Vaughn last year, hoping to persuade the star point guard from Pasadena Muir High to come to Indiana, neither could have foreseen what a cold December night in Lawrence, Kan., would bring. Vaughn ended up picking Kansas over the Hoosiers, and on Wednesday night he made a three-point shot with less than a second to play in overtime, lifting the sixth-ranked Jayhawks to an 86-83 victory over Knight and 12th-ranked Indiana.

Kansas, off to a rough start when Jacque Vaughn injured his hand during the preseason, made a smooth ending when their senior point guard carried the Jayhawks (32-1) to an 87-60 victory over Missouri at Kansas City, Mo., to win the inaugural Big 12 Conference tournament championship. The victory earned Kansas the Big 12's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament and the No. 1 seeding in the Southeast Region. Kansas accomplished the feat with two former Southland prep players.

Jacque Vaughn, Kansas' assist specialist-turned scorer, had 17 points Monday night as the third-ranked Jayhawks turned back a Missouri challenge early in the second half and went on to score an 87-65 victory at Lawrence, Kan. Kansas, 24-2 overall and 12-1 in the Big Eight, saw its 53-35 lead trimmed in half when the Tigers scored nine unanswered points in the first four minutes of the second half. But Vaughn made a three-point shot and a free throw as the Jayhawks pulled away.

For nearly the entire second half, Kansas senior Jerod Haase was a non-factor as he watched the Jayhawks and Arizona take turns with one emotional rally after another. But in key moments, Haase made two plays that counted the most--including a three-point basket with 34 seconds remaining--to lead Kansas to an 83-80 victory over the Wildcats on Friday night in a West Regional semifinal at McNichols Arena.

Kansas guard Jacque Vaughn, who had decided to return to the Jayhawks for his senior season rather than make himself available for the NBA draft, will probably not play until January after suffering a wrist injury in a pickup game Tuesday night. Vaughn tore ligaments in his shooting wrist and surgery will be required. * Former USC and pro basketball player Mack Calvin has been named coach at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

UCLA did not reintroduce itself as a major power Saturday afternoon, but got halfway there. For 20 galloping minutes, the Bruins were faster, smarter and better than the No. 2-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, gunning out to a stunning 19-point lead that was still 15 when the halftime buzzer sounded. Then, with UCLA poised for a revitalizing victory, the Bruins got chased down and blown apart.

Kansas lost its shot at a national title last season when it lost to Virginia, so Jacque Vaughn lost his hair, and a few pounds. The desire to win a championship? The player from Pasadena's John Muir High and three-year starter in Lawrence, Kan., most definitely hasn't lost that. Not as long as he can remember what it felt like when Virginia pushed around and overpowered the top-seeded Jayhawks in the semifinals of the Midwest Regional at Kansas City, Mo., 67-58.
