* UCLA (9-6, 4-2) at USC (7-8, 2-4), 7, KYPA (1230)--Maylana Martin's 17 points and Erica Gomez's nine assists weren't enough for UCLA to overtake Stanford last week, but Coach Kathy Olivier hopes similar production will be enough to beat USC tonight. For the thin Trojans, guard Kim Clark is still out because of a slipped disk and Jodi Parriott is out for the season because of a degenerative bone condition in her knee.

After a season that included one of the biggest upsets in school history and a few other close calls, Kathy Olivier stepped down Tuesday as UCLA women's basketball coach. "It's about winning championships here," said Petrina Long, an associate athletic director who met with Olivier on Monday. "On a frequent basis." Olivier was 232-208 in 15 seasons at the school. She confirmed in a statement that she has been "offered the opportunity" to move into athletic administration at the school.

Coach Steve Lavin and UCLA reached an agreement on a new contract, the same day the school also announced an impending new deal for its women's coach, Kathy Olivier. Lavin got a six-year package with a rollover clause and an annual base salary of $578,000. The rollover clause means he will always have a six-year contract, which provides long-term financial security for Lavin and the chance for him to use that stability as a tool in recruiting.
