Of all the mourning going on in Southern California about losing the top high school basketball players to the East Coast, nobody seemed to shed any tears when Jason Matthews of St. Monica in Santa Monica signed with the University of Pittsburgh. Maybe that's because Matthews wasn't even the top recruit on the Mariner team that reached the Southern Section 5-A semifinals, a position that went to center Brian Williams, now at Maryland.

A former UCLA ball boy who still cherishes his memories of wiping up the sweat of such former Bruins as Kenny Fields and Gary Maloncon, Jason Matthews couldn't have done much more to ensure a sellout for today's game between UCLA and Pittsburgh at Pauley Pavilion. More than 80 friends and relatives of the Pitt guard, a 6-foot-3 senior from St. Monica High in Santa Monica, will be scattered throughout the arena. Afterward, they will gather for a luncheon and reception at a restaurant in Westwood.

Leo Klemm, St. Monica High School basketball coach, thinks the seedings for cage teams in the 22nd annual Los Angeles Games are about right, but Westchester Coach Ed Azzam thinks the power ratings are wildly inaccurate about his team. St. Monica, one of the best 5-AA teams in the CIF-Southern Section last season, is seeded sixth, and Westchester, a City 4-A power in 1988-89, is the seventh seed in the cage competition, which gets under way Saturday at nine locations. Westchester was a power last year, but its gas tank may be nearly empty in 1989-90.
