Jason Dietrich always wanted to put on Cal State Fullerton pinstripes. He cheered for the Titans baseball team as a teenager, and visualized himself as a player jogging onto Goodwin Field to an ovation one day. That dream didn't materialize. But at 39, Dietrich is finally wearing those pinstripes and has played a major behind-the-scenes role for a Fullerton team that is among college baseball's best. As pitching coach, Dietrich guides one of the game's stingiest - and youngest - staffs.

In the new crime thriller "Parker," Jason Statham's high-end heister demands only one thing of mates and marks alike: do exactly what he asks. No questions, no debate, no one gets hurt. He is literal - and lethal - on the subject. One particularly nasty confrontation with mob types who dare to disagree gives you a sense of the tone. I'm pretty sure Parker breaks nearly all of a human's 206 bones. Through he's equally adept with guns and knives, it's the panache Parker brings to the bare-knuckle beatings - fashion-forward suits and starched white shirts - that make women swoon.

Jason Falitz of Burroughs High, perhaps the best two-meter water polo player in the region, is strong, stern and serious in the pool. But out of the water he is sunny, silly and songful. "He's very unique," Burroughs Coach Rey Rivera said. "He has a completely different demeanor away from the pool." Falitz leads the region in scoring for the second consecutive year and is a member of a national champion chamber choir group at Burroughs.

AT SPOKANE, WASH. No. 5 Connecticut (21-9, 10-6 Big East) vs. No. 12 Brigham Young (23-8, 11-3 Mountain West) Time: 11:40 a.m. PST Skinny: Connecticut is led by the inside-outside combination of guard Ben Gordon and center Emeka Okafor. The Huskies have three players who shoot better than 40% on three-pointers. Brigham Young will have the size advantage inside but must deal with Okafor, the nation's leading shot blocker.

Brigham Young was rallying when Emeka Okafor swatted Rafael Araujo's shot away. Okafor made sure the Cougars won't bust up anyone's brackets -- they're going home early instead. Okafor controlled both ends of the court, scoring 20 points and blocking seven shots to lead fifth-seeded Connecticut to a 58-53 victory Thursday over No. 12 Brigham Young in the first round of the South Regional at Spokane Arena. "He was magnificent," Connecticut Coach Jim Calhoun said.

San Diego center Jason Keep is drawing plenty of attention at the Spokane, Wash., subregional, and it has nothing to do with his 6-foot-10 frame and the flashy tattoos on his shoulders. Keep grew up in Moscow, Idaho, and played his senior year of high school basketball in Pullman, Wash. He started his college career at North Idaho Junior College in nearby Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, which is 30 miles from Spokane. He saw an old buddy during San Diego's practice at Spokane Arena on Wednesday.

Santa Barbara was as cold as ice in its first two losses at the Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska, but was blistering from the field in an 84-69 victory over winless Centenary, making 27 of 42 field goal attempts. San Diego (2-0) at UC Riverside (0-1), 7 p.m.

Long Beach State (4-17, 3-9) at Utah State (17-6, 8-4), 6 PST, KRLA (870) -- Last place Long Beach, which has used 12 different starting lineups to little avail, could prove to be the perfect tonic for Utah State after the Aggies lost a last-second Big West Conference game Thursday to visiting UC Irvine, 59-58. Guard Desmond Penigar, formerly of Upland High and Ventura College, led Utah State with 21 points. Long Beach's road record dropped to 0-10 Thursday after it lost at Idaho, 75-67.

Losing two exhibitions hurt UCLA's pride. And judging from the scars, the Bruins are giving the notion of playing with intensity something more tangible than lip service. Center Ryan Hollins has a fat lip and forward Jason Kapono is wearing a bandage below his bottom lip, the result of a collision in practice. Guard Jon Crispin returned to practice after suffering a concussion last week. "It's obvious we are not where we need to be, so we've really brought it at practice," Kapono said.
