Basketball, a game Rashida Jeffery loves nearly as much as life itself, might in time break her heart. It has already nearly broken her kneecap. A USC sophomore, Jeffery is at times the most spectacular player in the Pacific 10 Conference. An aggressive 6-foot-2 inside player, Jeffery jumps as well as anyone in women's basketball. She's a ferocious rebounder and an acrobatic shot-blocker. For Coach Cheryl Miller, whose Trojans (18-9) meet Memphis (21-7) at Nashville, Tenn.

The USC women's basketball team used a 12-2 run late in the first half as a launching pad for a 70-65 Pacific 10 victory over UCLA Friday night before 1,750 at the Sports Arena. Fourth-place USC (17-7 overall, 10-6 in the conference) won for the fourth time in five games and has two games remaining. Senior guard Karleen Shields ignited the nine-minute Trojan run late in the first half, before she had to be helped off the court because of a leg injury.

The No. 16-ranked USC women's basketball team, trailing by as many as eight points in the first half, took the lead for good with 16 minutes to play and went on to a 68-54 victory over Arizona on Thursday night before 1,671 in McKale Center at Tucson. The Trojans, 7-2 overall and 1-0 in the Pacific 10 Conference, were led by Lisa Leslie, who had 16 points, seven rebounds and four assists.

"Sure, that's fine!" she said, laughing. No one was laughing on the UCLA side of the court, not after 3,928 watched Clark almost single-handedly defeat the Bruins.

The feelings of helplessness come in waves, sometimes engulfing her athletes, who seem trapped in a basketball season without end. "We have to fight it every once in a while, the waves of helplessness, but I keep telling our kids the same thing--let 'em pass by," said Chris Gobrecht, the USC women's basketball coach. "I tell them there's no time for a pity party, that there are lot of good things we can make of this." Injuries are the issue.

T.J., T.J. Jr., and . . . Tina? In the masculine, knock-down, no-holds-barred world of inner-city playground basketball, the story of T.J., T.J. Jr. and Tina Thompson stands out. This was four, five years ago, and Tina Thompson--now a standout on the USC women's team--was developing her game against men, not girls. "Even when she was a high school sophomore, Tina could flat-out play," said T.J.
