To enlighten Mr. Michael Mayer, who wrote in a recent letter (Aug. 9) criticizing ARC Mid-Valley for its loss in the second round of the Las Vegas Invitational National Prep Basketball Tournament, there were a number of factors that should be considered. One factor was that while the team had a number of tune-up games, we never had a full team at any practice until we got to Las Vegas. This was due to summer camps, summer high school league games and tournaments, and a player's first commitment must be to his high school team.

At Victoria Park in Carson, someone has an eye on the action. Same for the Queen Anne and Denker recreation centers in Los Angeles, as well as playgrounds and gyms near you. Wherever the cadence of bouncing basketballs can be heard, someone will be watching. Children as young as 10 and 11 know it. The adults influencing them--parents, coaches and scouts--also know. Everyone is looking for the heir to Jordan's throne. This new star may not rise out of the streets of Los Angeles.

Center Alex Lopez blocked 12 shots and grabbed seven rebounds in the second half as ARC Mid-Valley defeated Jefferson City, Mo., 70-51, Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Amateur Athletic Union Junior Olympics 12-and-under national basketball tournament in Seattle. "He really took charge," Mid-Valley Coach Rich Goldberg said of the 6-6 Lopez. Mid-Valley led at halftime, 40-30. Cameron Murray scored 19 points for Mid-Valley, which plays No. 1-seeded Indiana in a semifinal today.

In Heather Hafner's article, "Timing Deserts Mid-Valley " (July 26), American Roundball Corp. President Rich Goldberg complained that tournament seeding was responsible for their second-round loss to New York in the Las Vegas Summer Basketball Tournament. "We were just starting to jell as a team," he said after consolation wins. How could he say that? Mid-Valley had tune-up games July 5 (losing to Sonny Hill's Philadelphia All-Stars), July 12 against Ventura ARC, and then waltzed through a weak field in the Slam 'N Jam tournament at UCLA July 15-19 before being upset by a hungry, well-coached Los Angeles team, 95-89, in the final.

Deborah Lopez, mother of one of Southern California's best grade-school basketball players, was more than a little occupied with her 23-month-old twin sons. They squirmed and tugged as she walked into the gym at Campbell Hall School in North Hollywood two months ago. But the twins were not the only ones competing for her attention. Lopez was being followed by a man she had just met. He wore a blue jacket embossed with the logo of a high school all-star game. He was carrying a notebook and pen.
