A few years back, Tim O'Brien, then the Tustin High School basketball coach, called Rancho Santiago College to check on the progress of LaVern Broadnax. Broadnax, a 5-foot-11 guard, had graduated from Tustin in 1987 and gone on to play for Dana Pagett at Rancho Santiago. Or so figured O'Brien, now coach at Estancia High. But Pagett had no idea how Broadnax was doing. Because he had no idea where Broadnax was.

Rancho Santiago College began the week as the top-ranked men's basketball team in the state, but figured to face two strong challenges over the weekend. The Dons withstood both and fortified their ranking with a 109-84 victory over Los Angeles City, the state's No. 10 team, Saturday in the championship game of the Rancho Santiago Holiday Tournament. Rancho Santiago (18-1) rolled past No. 13 Santa Monica, 103-84, in one semifinal Friday night. L.A. City (15-3) beat No.

Erik Martin of Rancho Santiago College ended the game much like he had started it--with a dunk that nearly shook the basket to its foundation. But when things calmed, Rancho Santiago had earned an intense 99-92 victory over host Cypress in the Orange Empire Conference opener for both teams in front of about 650. It was the 16th consecutive victory for the Dons (19-1, 0-1 in conference), the state's top-ranked team.

Harbor College Coach Ken Curry is fond of saying that if you can't get your stallion running, you've got to go to your mare. It took Harbor too long to get either of its horses going Wednesday night in the second round of the Southern California community college regionals. Terry Nelson and Eric Carpenter, Harbor's leading scorers, started slowly and a well-balanced Rancho Santiago team, the No. 3 seed in the regionals, ran away to a 105-86 victory at Rancho Santiago's Cook Gymnasium.

Rancho Santiago, which has dominated most of the competition in Southern California this season, took its act on a statewide level Thursday. The Dons demolished Kings River, 74-58, in front of about 1,500 in the opening round of the state tournament in Bren Center. Rancho Santiago set a single-season victory mark, improving to 33-2. Rancho Santiago goes looking for No. 34 tonight at 8 p.m. against Compton in one semifinal. Cypress plays Long Beach at 6 p.m. in the other. Both are at Irvine.

Rancho Santiago is heading back to UC Irvine with a chance to defend the state title the Dons won there a year ago thanks to a 90-74 victory over Los Angeles City in front of about 1,800 Saturday in Santa Ana. The margin, as Rancho Santiago Coach Dana Pagett was quick to point out, was misleading. Rancho Santiago (32-2) trailed, 62-61, with 8:46 left and the Dons looked to be in trouble. The offense had broken down and forward Erik Martin and center Corie Blount had three fouls each.
