Louie Nelson paced the sidelines, yelling, clearly frustrated as he watched one of his basketball players shoot yet another air ball. Fourteen minutes into the second half, Nelson's Harbor College women's team trailed, 78-20, and all the first-year coach could do was rest his cheek on the palm of his hand and swallow his emotions. One of Nelson's assistants, Andre Breland, sat at the end of the bench, head down, arms crossed. Occasionally he looked up, only to shake his head in disillusionment.

If anyone expected the Seahawks to falter after the Jan. 11 firing of the program's architect, Louie Nelson, they had better guess again. The Seahawks have discovered that life after Louie can still be a rousing success. Harbor is 3-0 since Nelson was suspended Jan.

Louie Nelson, basketball coach at Compton High School, has denied that he knocked one of his players unconscious in a locker room scuffle after a game at the school last Friday night.

A criminal complaint of assault was filed against the coach earlier this week.

Maybe the Ventura College women's basketball team will play Compton in a Southern California Regional game Saturday night . . . and maybe it won't. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge will decide Friday whether Compton can continue in the playoffs after being sanctioned by the South Coast Conference for alleged recruiting violations.

The Harbor College women's basketball team was not at its best in a first-round Southern California Regional playoff game Wednesday night. The Seahawks played sloppily for a half and shot poorly from the field for most of the game. But the Seahawks, winners of the Southern California Athletic Conference, came through in the end for a 71-57 victory over visiting Chaffey College. The seventh-seeded Seahawks improved to 26-6 and 10th-seeded Chaffey, the Foothill League's runner-up, finished 27-7.

The Harbor College women's basketball team was poised to upset Lassen in the quarterfinals of the state tournament Thursday, but three turnovers proved costly to the Seahawks down the stretch in a 96-91 loss at Ventura College. "Harbor is the best team in this tournament," Seahawk Coach Louie Nelson said. "The best team didn't win today. We played about 30 minutes out of 40."

Harbor College's team bus coughed and sputtered and barely made it to Valley for Saturday night's Southern California women's second-round regional playoff game. It was about the only thing that didn't run well for the Seahawks. Running, gunning and pressuring with abandon, Harbor won its 17th consecutive game and upset second-seeded Valley, 77-59, to advance to next week's state final eight in Oakland for the first time in school history.
