Ryan Briscoe was the fastest qualifier Saturday but, thanks to an unusual rules call, reigning IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti will start first in Sunday's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Briscoe, who drives for Chevrolet-powered Team Penske, turned a lap of 103.264 mph on the 1.97-mile, 11-turn course on the city's seaside streets. His teammate Will Power was second, and 2010 Long Beach winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, another Chevrolet driver, was third. But the three will start 11th-13th because all the Chevrolet drivers incurred a penalty of 10 starting spots due to unapproved engine changes by Chevrolet.

Portland, Ore. -- All that is missing is the black top. Long Beach State and New Mexico played at a pace, and at times the efficiency, of a pick-up game during their NCAA tournament game at the Rose Garden on Thursday. All that was missing was five guys on the sideline calling, “Next.” New Mexico's late 10-3 spurt gave the Lobos a 33-29 halftime lead. Both teams looked skittish to start the game. Long Beach turned the ball over on its first five possessions, then missed two shots on its sixth possession.

When Alan Pullman first drove by the Raphael Soriano house, a small Modernist gem in the Alamitos Heights section of Long Beach, he turned to his wife, Stephanie, and said: "That's my house, I'm going to live in that house.
