When a speaker from an anti-drug abuse agency reminded students at Canyon High School that summer usually means beach parties and "getting high and going dancing," he drew whoops, cheers and giggles. But the students' frivolous mood at the school year's final assembly abruptly turned serious when they heard from two mothers of schoolmates killed in drunk-driving accidents.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Bring on the next bunch of disappointing, underachieving, gagging local athletes. And so it goes with our Trojans, Lakers, Clippers and even the Bruins losing their last three. So much promise, raised expectations and then a quick goodbye to all. The Kings? The who? Oh yeah, I hear they're down already, 2-0. Thank heavens for the grandchildren. They are waiting at home, in for a visit from Arizona, and they don't give a lick about the power trip referee Joe Crawford is on, disturbed fans in Memphis or a visit with the Choking Dogs on Monday night.

Karen Heilman, who helped launch a campaign in the Santa Clarita Valley to dissuade teen-agers from driving drunk, was remembered Sunday after her death in a car accident as a woman who "attracted kids like a magnet." "She was tough on them, and yet they just loved her," fellow activist Micki Strickland said in a telephone interview. Heilman, 37, of Canyon Country was killed Friday in a two-car collision in Valencia.

Kobe Bryant had just finished one of his most efficient games this season when his upbeat interview session with reporters stalled. Someone asked him what the Lakers needed do to improve. He offered an important two-word response: "Transition defense. " That was Sunday. The Lakers got buried a day later in fastbreak points by the Denver Nuggets, 33-3, in a 119-108 loss. Bryant couldn't have been more accurate. There is one place the Lakers (28-30) lead the league, and it's certainly not victories.

The NBA rescinded Kobe Bryant's technical foul from Monday's game against Denver, giving him slightly more wiggle room in avoiding a suspension. Bryant now has 13 technical fouls this season; if he were to get to 16, he'd be suspended one game. Bryant was hit with his latest technical after missing a half-court heave to end the second quarter Monday in the Lakers' 119-108 loss. Bryant claimed it should have been rescinded, adding that he even spoke to referee Joe Crawford about it before the third quarter began.

New York Met pitcher Joe Crawford, who shut down the Dodgers last week in his first major-league start, was sent back to the minor leagues Sunday. "I'm disappointed, but I understand how it works," the rookie left-hander said. "Who else is going to go down? I'm the most untested guy." New York, which had 12 pitchers before the move, recalled infielder Jason Hardtke from triple-A Norfolk of the International League.

Freshman guard Joe Crawford rejoined Kentucky's basketball team after leaving the squad last week because of a dispute over playing time. Coach Tubby Smith said during a conference call Monday that Crawford will face "some sanctions," but he did not say what they would be. Crawford is working out with the team, but Smith would not say if he will play Wednesday when the Wildcats (12-2) are at Mississippi. Crawford met with Smith over the weekend and said he has been welcomed back.

Joe Crawford relieved Bobby Jones after a long rain delay and got his first victory Friday night as the New York Mets defeated the Cincinnati Reds, 4-3. Crawford (1-1) pitched 4 1/3 innings after replacing Jones, who gave up a homer to Ed Taubensee in the second inning before the game was halted for 1 hour 28 minutes by a thunderstorm. Crawford, making only his seventh appearance, gave up two runs and three hits in tying the longest stint of his brief career.

It was the Lakers' turn, finally, 4 hours and 20 minutes into the NBA draft. It took a while to get there, the Lakers sitting out the first round because they sent the 28th pick to Memphis as part of the Pau Gasol trade, but they eventually selected Kentucky guard Joe Crawford with the 58th pick Thursday. Crawford, 6 feet 4, averaged 17.9 points a game and shot 36.4% from three-point range in his senior season at Kentucky. Like every second-round pick, he does not get a guaranteed contract.

DENVER - Sorry, Lakers fans. Not yet. A modest three-game Lakers winning streak was strewn across the court by the Denver Nuggets, who looked like the varsity scrimmaging against the JVs for most of a breezy 119-108 victory Monday night at the Pepsi Center. The Lakers were turnstiles on defense, the Nuggets amassing - stop and sit for a sec - 78 points in the paint. Fastbreak points? Please. The Lakers were annihilated, 33-3. There was cheering for a fast-food taco promotion, but not the type Lakers fans would like.

You thought the officials were a big part of Game 1 of the Western Conference finals? Uh-uh. The Ref Fest was just getting started. Neither team complained after 72 fouls were called and 98 free throws were shot Monday, because they were split almost evenly. That wasn't the case in Game 2 Wednesday night. "Tonight was ridiculous," Dallas Maverick guard Nick Van Exel said. The free throws weren't divided evenly as the San Antonio Spurs won, 119-106, to even the series, 1-1.
