Since he started his athletic career at Pomona High, Johnny McWilliams has never spent a lot of time relaxing during the summer. For the most part, summer vacation for McWilliams has consisted of heavy doses of basketball tournaments, leagues, camps and practices. This summer, as McWilliams prepares to enter his senior year in high school, the schedule is a little more hectic than usual, a little more busy than for most high school athletes.

Johnny McWilliams scored four points in the final 14 seconds of overtime to give Pomona an 85-84 victory over Inglewood Morningside in a first-round Division III Southern Regional State tournament basketball game Tuesday at Pomona. Pomona trailed, 84-81, when McWilliams, a 6-foot-6 senior, followed his own missed shot to cut Morningside's lead to one point. Then, he picked off an errant pass by the Monarchs' Shawn Forbin and scored a layup to win the game.

A year after being selected as The Times San Gabriel Valley player of the year for the second season in a row, former Pomona High forward Johnny McWilliams is no longer competing in basketball. But the 6-foot-5, 215-pound McWilliams appears to have a future as a tight end with the USC football team. McWilliams, who red-shirted as a freshman last season, also played quarterback for Pomona as a senior.

USC lost, 21-20, when McWilliams short-hopped the pass, thrown by quarterback Rob Johnson. On the previous play, he had caught a pass on a similar play for a touchdown with 37 seconds to play.

Tight end John Allred, USC's No. 2 receiver, broke his left leg in practice Wednesday and is lost for the season. Allred caught 10 passes for 131 yards in three games before he went down with what at first appeared to be a sprained ankle. Later, X-rays showed a break in the lower leg, and he was scheduled for surgery Thursday afternoon. Allred led the Trojans in receiving yardage, and only wide receiver Ken Grace had more catches, with 16.

Throw out the third quarter and this was a heck of a game. With it, however, Pomona High routed Kearny High, 72-52, in a Southern California Regional Division III semifinal in Pomona. "The third quarter killed us," Kearny Coach Bill Peterson understated. "Other than that it's a six-point ballgame." After leading by four, 31-27, at halftime, Pomona outscored Kearny, 23-9, in the third quarter to advance to Saturday's championship at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

Running back Leonard Green and wide receiver Larry Parker will start the season sharing punt-return duties, Coach John Robinson said Monday. Freshman Daylon McCutcheon had been penciled in over the summer, and one day last week was 11 for 11 catching John Stonehouse's sky-high punts. But on the next day he dropped three. A year ago, Robinson said, "Before you can be a great punt returner, you must first show me you're a great punt catcher."
