It didn't take long for Jon Upham to realize he had signed up for something completely different. Upham, a graduate of Corona del Mar High's defense-first basketball program, was at his first practice for the University of Redlands, a team that has won the NCAA Division III scoring title two of the past three seasons. If the contrast hadn't sunk in already for Upham, that practice session--which featured 24 minutes of full-court running and gunning--was a lung-opening experience.

Corona del Mar 39, South Pasadena 36--Senior forward Jon Upham led all scorers with 16 points for the Sea Kings (13-12) in a defensive battle. "Our record is deceiving," Corona del Mar Coach Paul Orris said. "Almost every (nonleague) team we played this season finished first in their league.
