There's nothing like starting out your film acting experience with a simple, no-brainer part. Just ask 13-year-old Mayim Bialik. All she had to do for her major feature film debut--Touchstone's "Beaches," opening Friday--is play red-headed Bette Midler at age 11, which is a lot like being asked to play a strengthening tropical depression.

USC's women's basketball team gathered Monday among family, fans and athletic department personnel to learn its NCAA tournament opponent and destination. A stirring run to win the Pac-12 Conference tournament March 9 ensured there would be no sense of bubble-induced foreboding, only eager anticipation. When USC's name flashed during the televised announcement of the 64-team field, the reception room in the Galen Center erupted in cheers and applause. USC, making its first tournament appearance since 2006, will play St. John's on Saturday in Knoxville, Tenn.

UCLA today vs. St. John's Where: Pauley Pavilion. When: 10 a.m. On the air: TV: Channel 2. Radio: 570. Records: UCLA 15-7, St. John's 13-8. Update: St. John's has lost five of its last eight games, but the defeats haven't come against a collection of nobodies. The Red Storm recently completed a stretch of eight consecutive games against ranked teams before pulling out a 58-56 victory over Rutgers on Wednesday. UCLA Coach Ben Howland said maintaining composure against St. John's pressing, trapping attack would be critical to obtaining a victory that could considerably enhance the Bruins' postseason resume.

Reporting from New York -- Madison Square Garden was buzzing Friday night, with Paul McCartney seated near courtside to check out New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. Less than 24 hours later, UCLA put itself through a hard day's night on the same floor amid considerably reduced fanfare. The Bruins continually flubbed the ball against St. John's. They looked less composed than a team starting five freshmen. They allowed more second chances than they had earlier this season for Reeves Nelson.

The Red Storm did in Pittsburgh -- and did the Redmen proud. On the day St. John's honored 10 former coaches and players who were all at the school when it was using its old nickname, the Red Storm knocked No. 9 Pittsburgh from the ranks of the unbeaten, 55-50, Saturday at Madison Square Garden. The Red Storm is getting used to winning against ranked teams, having beaten No. 17 Louisville, 68-56, on Tuesday. "We are not just playing for ourselves," St. John's guard Daryll Hill said. "St.

Bob Knight was right about St. John's. The No. 3-seeded Red Storm were every bit as tough, athletic and difficult to play as the Indiana coach feared and handed the No. 6-seeded Hoosiers their worst-ever defeat in the NCAA tournament, 86-61, on Saturday in the second round of the South Regional. Bootsy Thornton had 17 points and Lavor Postell had 16 to lead five double-figure scorers for St.

Marcus Hatten loves taking gambles. His biggest one Tuesday night helped St. John's reach the National Invitation Tournament final. Hatten stole the ball from Will Chavis and made a layup with 16.2 seconds remaining to give the Red Storm a 64-63 victory over Texas Tech and Bob Knight in the semifinals at New York. "I was reading the guy with the ball [Chavis], and I knew he was going to pass it," Hatten said. "So I just turned my back like I wasn't paying him no mind."

Marcus Hatten helped St. John's win a championship. And the Red Storm fans helped him celebrate. Hatten ended his collegiate career with a championship, scoring 22 points as St. John's won its sixth National Invitation Tournament with a 70-67 comeback victory over Big East rival Georgetown in front of 12,406 Thursday night in Madison Square Garden at New York. Boisterous St. John's fans rushed the court after the game as "New York, New York" played.

Frank Sinatra's voice reverberated through St. John's Alumni Hall on Saturday as the UC Irvine Anteaters celebrated their way to the locker room, believing every word of New York's unofficial anthem. If they could make it here, they could make it anywhere. The Anteaters had just fulfilled their impossible dream, beating host St. John's, 83-77, to win the Joe Lapchick Memorial tournament. It was the first time in 21 years that the Red Storm had not won the title, ending a 41-0 St.

Norvel Pelle's odyssey to reach the NBA just got at least one year longer. The former Los Angeles Price High star who twice failed to meet college academic entrance requirements withdrew from the NBA draft on Monday because of a foot issue that forced him to miss workouts for four teams. Pelle has a severe blister/wart that needs to be surgically removed, according to a representative for his agent, Greg Nunn. The 6-foot-10 power forward largely remains a mystery because he has not played against high-level competition since he starred at Price more than two years ago. He's spent most of his time since then bouncing from prep school to prep school while attempting to qualify for college, playing only part of one season at L.A. College Preparatory Academy.

Steve Lavin attended St. John's basketball practice Tuesday, his first since undergoing prostate cancer surgery on Oct. 6. Assistant coach Mike Dunlap has run the team in Lavin's absence. The Red Storm won their season opener on Monday, beating William & Mary 74-59 in the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer. The school said there is no definite timetable for his full-time return. This is Lavin's second season at St. John's. He led the Red Storm to a 21-12 record and their first NCAA tournament bid since 2002.

The morning had been one of hugs and handshakes for Steve Lavin. As he milled about on the Pauley Pavilion court before the game, the St. John's coach momentarily forgot where he was and nearly took a seat on the UCLA bench. "Coach [Gene] Keady thankfully reminded me that we were on the other end" of the court, Lavin said. There was also something reassuringly familiar for Bruins fans about Lavin's return to Westwood. His team lost. Shrugging off some manic full-court pressure and poor free-throw shooting in the final minutes, UCLA held on for a 66-59 victory that solidified its NCAA tournament standing with a month left in the regular season.

Steve Lavin was searching for a lunch spot near his TriBeCa loft one frigid morning a few months ago when a St. John's athletics official walking alongside the coach mentioned a few details about his remodeled basketball office. As Lavin had requested, the wall facing an adjacent hallway had been replaced by floor-to-ceiling glass to provide an increased sense of accessibility. There was also something Lavin hadn't asked for: a cross bearing a likeness of Jesus that had been left behind by the previous occupants.

St. John's, 19-6 overall and 11-3 in the Big East, defeated a ranked conference opponent for the second consecutive game. Saturday night's 76-75 victory over then-No. 9 Syracuse also was in front of a sellout crowd of 19,410 at Madison Square Garden.

If you thought UC Irvine's victory over St. John's in the Joe Lapchick tournament Saturday had a big impact in Orange County, you should have seen the bite it took out of the Big Apple. "SHOCKER," screamed the headline topping the Daily News sports coverage on the tabloid's back page. The subhead read: "St. John's was the only champion the 20-year-old Lapchick tourney ever knew, but Cal-Irvine embarrassed the Red Storm yesterday, 83-77, to take the crown."

Steve Lavin made his first appearance as coach of St. John's in a building he'll soon become quite familiar with — Madison Square Garden. About four hours after he agreed to take charge of New York City's top college program, Lavin sat down Tuesday night for an impromptu news conference during the NIT semifinals. "Having come here as an assistant coach and then a head coach at UCLA and then as a broadcaster, I have a sense and feel for how special an arena it is; it is the world's biggest stage for college basketball," Lavin said.
