Ladell Andersen, who coached Brigham Young University to a 114-71 record in six seasons as basketball coach, resigned Friday. BYU was 14-15 in 1988-89, Andersen's first losing season. "I felt this was the best thing I could do for myself, the university and everyone concerned," said Andersen, 60. "There was never any pressure put on me by anyone at Brigham Young or the administration." Schools officials were surprised by Andersen's move.

This weekend's Brigham Young basketball tournament may look like a setup for Pepperdine, but it didn't start out that way. The Waves, who have won four straight games after a season-opening loss to Kansas, seem to be the only strong team in the tournament. But Pepperdine Coach Jim Harrick said his team didn't try to get into a tournament against patsies. "We schedule these things three or four years ahead of time, and when we arranged to play in this one, BYU still had (Danny) Ainge."

Brigham Young basketball coach Ladell Anderson, having failed to survive the Western Athletic Conference playoffs and finishing with a 14-15 season, stepped down today. BYU Athletic Director Glen Tuckett said Anderson's unexpected departure, ending a six-year stint at the Mormon Church-owned school, should be viewed as a retirement rather than a resignation. "This is a question of semantics," he said at a late-morning news conference.

Brigham Young forward Timo Saarelainen has finally had a chance to show basketball fans in the United States what fans in Finland have known for years. He can play. It's no fluke that the leading scorer on the Finnish Olympic team for the past four seasons is leading the Western Athletic Conference with a 22.3 scoring average this season. Stopping Saarelainen will be San Diego State's task tonight when the Aztecs play BYU at 6:35 in the Marriott Center at Provo (KSDO-1130, tape delay).

The season's over, but Dexter Manley remained his outrageous self Wednesday when the Washington Redskins were honored at the White House. While President Reagan was shaking hands with the players on the South Lawn, Manley grabbed the microphone and told the crowd, "We're going to renegotiate the President's contract for four more years." Never mind that Reagan is constitutionally prohibited from seeking a third term.
