USC's linebacker shuffle continued Wednesday as freshman Rey Maualuga returned from Northern California, freshman Brian Cushing sat out for precautionary reasons and sophomore Keith Rivers practiced for the first time in nearly two weeks.

If California is serious about reducing its prison population, one crucial component will have to be reducing recidivism. Currently, a lot of the state's inmates are men and women who've been in prison more than once. They get out, they have little training or education, they can't get jobs and, in many cases, they return to lives of crime and find themselves back behind bars. But a major new study of correctional education in U.S. state prisons suggests there are things California could do to slow that revolving door.

"Ihad a period in 1981 when I was Florence Henderson. Then, I wanted to look like Sissy in 'Family Affair.' " Now, says Ann Magnuson, "I'm into the 1800s . . . heart-beating romanticism, filmy empire-waist dresses, reading Lord Byron." But for her role in "You Could Be Home Now," a one-woman show that opened Thursday night in West Hollywood, Magnuson, who played a fashion victim magazine editor on the TV series "Anything but Love," has become a fashion minimalist.

The Who's-No. 1 soap opera that played out here in the Newsweek Champions Cup tennis tournament will be repeated in the next two weeks at the Lipton in Key Biscayne, Fla. Carlos Moya's loss to Mark Philippoussis in Sunday's final here left Moya 37 points ahead of Pete Sampras. Moya will remain No. 1 for two weeks no matter what, since there is no ranking change on the middle Monday at Lipton, same as at the Grand Slam events.

"Ready to go? I'm ready to go," Pierre Gauthier announced. He came to training camp as an answer and left for Springfield and the American Hockey League as a question. Olli Jokinen returns as neither. Or both. The Kings, who have been shut out in three of their last four games, including the last two at home, said Monday that Jokinen was being recalled from Springfield, where he had three goals and nine points.

Yao Ming has been a big problem for the Clippers. The 7-foot-6, 310-pound Houston center scored 29 points and grabbed 15 rebounds Feb. 22 in a 106-102 Rocket victory at the Toyota Center. In nine games this month, Yao is averaging 28.9 points and 11 rebounds. Tonight at Houston, the Clippers begin a three-game, five-day trip, so they again have focused much of their attention on Yao. "Yao Ming has been playing incredibly well," Coach Mike Dunleavy said.
