Alemany 42, Mary Star of the Sea 27--The trio of wide receiver Richard Dice, tailback Terry Barnum and quarterback Adam Romandi powered Alemany to a nonleague victory at home. The Indians' ball-control offense was led by Barnum's 200 yards in 25 carries and Dice's 198 receiving yards. Each scored three touchdowns. Romandi completed nine of 13 passes, all to Dice.

Richard Dice did not see the referee signal a touchdown. He did not hear the roar of the visiting team's fans who were packed into the closed end of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It should have been a shining moment for Arizona's all-conference receiver. Halfway through his senior year, Dice had finally recovered from off-season surgery to his left knee. He had returned to his hometown to play against USC.

Arizona wide receiver Richard Dice sprained his left knee in practice and will sit out Saturday's game against UCLA. Dice had 21 catches for team highs of 375 yards and five touchdowns. Cary Taylor, who had sat out two games because of a knee sprain, is expected to return and replace Dice.

Richard Dice, Arizona's top wide receiver until he injured a knee, faces a one-game suspension after he recovers. Athletic Director Jim Livengood said the school would comply with the NCAA order to suspend the player, but blamed the situation on an agent. Livengood notified the NCAA three weeks ago that Dice had accepted a telephone debit card from a "runner" for agent Robert Troy Caron of Oxnard.

Wide receiver Richard Dice of Alemany High, a Times All-Valley selection in football and basketball, has signed a letter of intent to play football for Arizona. After struggling since last fall to score the required 700 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, Dice scored 1,070 on the test in May, maintained a 2.0 grade-point average in core classes at Alemany and was offered a scholarship by Arizona.

The Alemany High boys' basketball team paid little heed to Coach Kurt Keller's pregame instructions to pound the ball inside in a Southern Section Division II-A first-round playoff game against visiting Redondo on Friday night. The Indians were content to open the game firing away from long range and found themselves in a halftime tie as a result. But Alemany complied in the second half and rallied behind senior swingman Richard Dice to win, 74-67. "I lit into them at halftime," Keller said.

Without Terry Barnum in the backfield for most of Friday night, Alemany High rolled the Dice and came up a winner anyway. Barnum, hobbled by a bruised right ankle, carried the ball just six times against Chaminade, but his 35-yard touchdown pass to Richard Dice on an option was the big play in the Indians' 13-3 Mission League victory. Alemany (4-2, 2-1 in league play) trailed, 3-0, entering the third period and had been unable to mount much offense.

For Alemany High receiver Richard Dice, patience was more than a virtue Saturday night. It provided salvation. For three quarters, Dice and everybody else at Birmingham High waited for something to pop, for someone to make the big play. Dice said he believed it was inevitable, though a scoreless tie seemed like a definite possibility. "I just had to wait," Dice said with a shrug. "And it paid off."

Looking like a prizefighter who has absorbed too many blows, Richard Dice winces and wills himself out of the Arizona football locker room to meet with reporters on Saturday. His blond crew-cut is a mess. The lampblack that reduces glare is smeared across his cheeks. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound wide receiver from Alemany High has acquired severe bruises on his hip, calf, knee and lower back in a 34-24 victory in Tucson over UCLA--the team that ruined the Wildcats' Rose Bowl plans in 1993.

He doesn't wear a cape, although he rarely tucks in the tail of his basketball jersey. There is no capital S on his chest, but there is an oversized letter A. He isn't able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but he has hurdled a 6-foot-6 center. Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's . . . Diceman. According to Alemany High basketball Coach Kurt Keller, senior Richard Dice is in a class, and a classification, by himself.

Dead air crops up repeatedly in telephone conversations with Alemany High receiver Richard Dice, as though strategic words have been edited out by a cosmic censor. Words disappear in mid-sentence. Everyone knows that there are no blank spots on a pair of dice, but there are plenty in a phone pairing with Dice. A sample: Rich, so you clocked 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard sprint at the Washington summer camp, eh? "Yeah, I . . . few 4.55s and a 4.52," Dice said. "They didn't . . .
