Jarron Collins may be a twin, but he's no clone. Collins accentuated the differences, basketball-wise, between himself and brother Jason during Harvard-Westlake High's 75-46 victory over San Diego St. Augustine in the first round of the Southern California Regional Division III tournament Tuesday night at Harvard-Westlake.

Jarron Collins sat down with Jim Rome as part of a three-member panel to discuss the disclosure that his twin brother, NBA player Jason Collins, is gay. Jason Collins, in an interview published last week in Sports Illustrated, became the first professional athlete in a major American sport to reveal that he's gay. Since then he has said Jarron was "astounded" by the news. Jarron joined FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock and former NFL player Trevor Pryce in a discussion for the show "Jim Rome on Showtime," scheduled to air Wednesday night at 9 p.m. EDT and PDT. Jason, who is a free agent, plans to play next season.

What's next for the rarely dull Clippers? Decisions, of course. They have a few to make in the coming days and weeks before the Feb. 24 trading deadline. But first up will be the immediate fate of reserve big man Jarron Collins. His 10-day contract, his second with the Clippers, expires Monday. Collins was the only survivor among the nonroster training camp invitees, played sparingly in the regular season, and ended up getting waived Jan. 3 because of the then-approaching deadline for guaranteeing contracts.

By all indications, Chatsworth High's Eddie Miller appeared primed for the Chancellors' much-anticipated matchup with Harvard-Westlake on Wednesday night. After controlling the opening tip, the 6-foot-8 senior center took the ball near the top of the key, looked 6-10 Wolverine forward Jarron Collins in the eye, took a step back and drained a three-pointer. Another basket by Miller and the Chancellors were off to a quick start.

Seniors Jason and Jarron Collins, beginning their fourth varsity season, led the Wolverines with 18 and 13 points, respectively. Senior guards Rico Cabrera (14 points) and Ryan Smiley (12) also scored in double figures, and seven reserves scored.

The most-impressive part of Harvard-Westlake's third-quarter run that led to its first state title was that Jason and Jarron Collins played only supporting roles. The junior twins were terrors as usual on the defensive end for the Wolverines in their 62-49 victory over Sacramento Grant in the Division III State final Saturday at ARCO Arena. But when Harvard went on a 17-2 run to open the second half and erase a six-point deficit, the Collinses had just five points in the stretch.

One thing about the Collins twins: three quarters often is enough. That again was the case Tuesday night for juniors Jason and Jarron Collins, who both enjoyed the luxury of spending the fourth quarter on the bench as Harvard-Westlake High polished off Tehachapi, 81-42, in a first-round game of the Division III Southern California Regional at Harvard.

Brother, that was close! All Jason Collins, Jarron Collins and the rest of the Harvard-Westlake High basketball team could envision Saturday at the Pond was last year's season-ending one-point loss to Artesia at the same venue. However, a missed shot at the regulation buzzer by San Diego University forward Luke Walton had Harvard thinking forward again. And in overtime, the Wolverines hardly looked back.

There was a small measure of suspense left in the Clippers' camp Monday. Of course, it was anything but a small matter to the likes of forward Marqus Blakely and center Jarron Collins , especially when careers are at issue. Blakely got the word after practice that he was waived, and Collins heard from Neil Olshey , the team's vice president of basketball operations, that he made the 14-man roster. The Clippers open the season Wednesday against Portland at Staples Center.

Now that there haven't been any Carmelo Anthony -to-the-Clippers rumors for a couple of weeks, it's time to get back to the pressing issue at hand. Namely, the Clippers' bigs. That would be Chris Kaman , who logged 37 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Denver Nuggets. There is DeAndre Jordan , who is injured, and Jarron Collins , who is in camp on a non-guaranteed deal. Collins played 11 minutes against Denver and had two rebounds. So this begs the question: Are the Clippers, 1-4 in preseason, looking for another big man?

With leading scorer Casey Jacobsen shut down for much of the game, No. 1 Stanford turned to twin towers Jason and Jarron Collins for scoring punch. Each of the Collins twins scored 18 points at Pullman, Wash., as Stanford shook off surprisingly tough Washington State, 72-61, to set a school record with 19 consecutive victories to open the season. "There is no pressure on any one individual on this team," said Jacobsen, who entered the game averaging nearly 18 points, but settled for 11.

Time stood still for Jason Collins. Time rushed by at the speed of light for Jarron Collins. Jason and Jarron Collins, twins blessed with the perfect basketball bodies, tall and strong, twins blessed with each other as well, best friends and pickup partners, will lead the Stanford basketball team into the Arrowhead Pond Saturday for a noon game against Auburn. Jason is listed as a freshman. Jarron is a junior. How can this be? A knee blown to bits, a wrist smashed up.

It was ugly, crazy, physical--as much a Jerry Quarry bout as a basketball game. "Like two heavyweight, punch-drunk fighters out there, swaying back and forth," Stanford Coach Mike Montgomery said afterward. Purdue, in the end, hit the deck Friday night while Stanford staggered on, beating the Boilermakers, 67-59, at the Kiel Center to advance to Sunday's Midwest Regional final against Rhode Island, which defeated Valparaiso.

Collins, who shared The Times' Valley player of the year award last season with his twin, Jarron Collins, at Harvard-Westlake High, injured the knee in practice the first week of December. The surgery was performed Dec. 10.

Jarron Collins is munching a bagel in a crowded restaurant while his twin brother, Jason, picks at a Cobb salad. Their parents share a bowl of chicken soup and review the family's busy itinerary for the next few days: a formal dinner, an awards brunch, an autograph-signing session, a Stanford mixer at the Music Center. But the quiet late-night dinner doesn't stay private for long.
