Long Beach Poly 51, Pasadena 43. Leading contributors: Junior guard Shelton Boykin of Long Beach Poly led a balanced attack with 13 points, one of eight players to score for the Jackrabbits. George Toyama had 18 points for Pasadena. The scoop: Poly held the Bulldogs scoreless in the first quarter, finishing with a 9-0 lead thanks to a smothering defense. The Jackrabbits led by as many as 20 points in the fourth quarter. Except for four-of-15 free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter, Poly dominated from start to finish.

Josh Nunes and Richard Brehaut figured their arms would take them places. Palo Alto and Westwood? More like Anaheim and New York. Those were once the dream destinations of the Pacific 10 Conference-bound quarterbacks who until only a few years ago projected as major league baseball players. Nunes was a hard-throwing right-hander who once struck out all 18 batters in a Little League game. Brehaut was a catcher with a penchant for throwing out would-be base stealers.

Matt Barkley of Santa Ana Mater Dei, a starter since his freshman year and the Gatorade national player of the year as a junior, is the choice as the top quarterback in Southern California.

By the end of April, few had mentioned Richard Brehaut of Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos as a viable candidate. He had two scholarship offers and wasn't considered a national recruit.

Re "Doctors' faith must yield to gays' rights, court says," Aug. 19 What struck me in this article about doctors having no right to refuse to perform a procedure in violation of their consciences was the statement that "civil libertarian groups sided with [Guadalupe T.] Benitez," the plaintiff. The proper response of a civil libertarian would be to inform Benitez that she was free to seek a doctor who believed in her right to have artificial insemination. She is not free to violate another person's right to decline such treatment.
