Two years on the bench was almost more than Lawrence Larry could endure. Frustrated and unsure, he was willing to try anything. So the USC defensive lineman walked into a South-Central Los Angeles gym last summer with a notion that boxing's sweet science might help him wage hand-to-hand combat on the football field. "Boxers are very tough, very quick," Larry said. "I wanted to incorporate that into my game." That kind of thinking can make coaches cringe.

Lawrence "Larry" King wasn't sexually harassing fellow eighth-grade student Brandon McInerney in the weeks leading up to King's shooting death, prosecutors contend in court documents. McInerney was the aggressor, teasing the effeminate King for weeks and vowing to "get a gun and shoot" him, according to a prosecution brief. Multiple students provided accounts of a growing hostility between the two boys, the document shows. Their dispute ended in tragedy a year ago today when McInerney allegedly armed himself with a .22-caliber revolver and shot King in the back of the head twice in an Oxnard classroom as the school day was beginning.

McInerney faces a charge of premeditated murder for allegedly killing King at school Feb. 12, after King openly flirted with him on campus. Prosecutors have labeled it a hate crime.

Tailback Delon Washington likes to think this is the year he and the Trojans are really going somewhere. It just won't be in his car. Washington, a 1,000-yard rusher as a sophomore who had a suspension-marred season last year, has a small problem with his wheels. He no longer has any after his car was stolen from a campus lot sometime Sunday. "A '91 Accord with 82,000 miles. No nice rims or anything," Washington said.
