"No Harmony on This Court" (Oct. 30) was long on opinion and short on fact. Your unbalanced report portrayed a false and misleading image of indifference by UC Riverside officials to the concerns raised by several former and one current student-athlete of the women's basketball team. All of the issues raised have been thoroughly examined by myself and others, and actions taken where appropriate. The Times offered no evidence that departure of players over the last three years represented a "disproportional" attrition rate.

The Riverside County District Attorney's office will not prosecute members of the UC Riverside women's basketball team in connection with a fight on March 8. "The problem was that there was a fair amount of conflicting information given," said Tim Searight of the district attorney's office. Searight said the decision was made last week. Former Riverside players Jennifer Newsome, 22, and Monica Vargas, 21, were engaged in a scuffle with several team members at a restaurant near the school.

UC Riverside 100, Sacramento State 66--In this season of giving, UC Riverside players were in the spirit of helping each other get open shots and that spelled doom for an outclassed Sacramento State squad at the Student Recreation Center in Riverside. Riverside (4-6) won for the fourth time in five games and easily topped prior season bests with its point total and shooting percentage. The Highlanders made 61.9% of their shots and hit 10 of 17 three-point tries.
