Perhaps Rick Aberegg was born in the wrong era. Maybe if he hadn't excelled in basketball during a time when people shorter than six feet didn't play in the NBA, Aberegg would have had a different destiny. Aberegg, who still holds the Katella High School single-season scoring record, started two seasons at point guard for Cal State Long Beach, on teams that were among the best in the nation.

The bill of fare at the pregame meal for the North team before Saturday night's Orange County All-Star basketball game consisted of local newspaper clippings that heralded the South team as a heavy favorite in the 22nd annual charity game. "We had three newspapers and we passed them around so that everyone could read them," said North forward Dennis Burbank of Valencia. "We were still talking about those stories in the locker room before we took the court." Ah, the power of the press.

A rose, by any other name, is still a rose. So, too, is an Aberegg. That's what Courtney Aberegg has discovered. It's a lesson shared with Venessa Ferragamo and Spencer George. When it comes to high school sports in Orange County, these three athletes find themselves carrying on the family name. In some cases, such as Aberegg's, it's no big deal. Ferragamo, on the other hand, longs for the day when "Daughter of Vince Ferragamo" doesn't seem to be part of her surname.

Bob Terry stood at the free-throw line, and a look of disgust washed over his face. His foul-shot attempt had just spun around the rim and rolled off in an act of betrayal. Fullerton Coach Roger See did his best to console his sophomore forward. "That's OK, son, you're going to make more than you miss." In Terry's case, this is one of the major understatements of the season. Terry, a 6-foot-8 forward, has a shooting touch normally associated with much smaller players.

He's a great motivator, but hardly an innovator. So tough, he sometimes appears insensitive. Expects 100% because anything less is unacceptable. A regimented drill instructor. For 23 years, Thomas Andrew Danley has done things his way as basketball coach at Katella High School. His success often has had little to do with strategy. Instead, he has relied more on salesmanship. For the most part, Danley has won with average players.

Combing through the artifacts of Long Beach State basketball, which plays home games in "The Pyramid," is quite an archaeological dig. What an eclectic mishmash of characters, hoop dreams and hiccups. The school nickname is the 49ers, but could easily be "The Asterisks," or "The Elevators. " "It's been up and down," Glenn McDonald, a founding forward from the 1970s, said of the program. You can guess Sutter's Mill for the nickname inspiration and be off by only a century.

Tom Lewis was the scoring sensation and Rich Branning was a point guard extraordinaire. LeRon Ellis was the graceful center, and Wayne Carlander was a powerful blue-collar forward. Matt Beeuwsaert was the ultimate team player, and Mark Wulfemeyer was a legend. For the past 20 years, some of the Southern Section's most talented basketball players have gained fame, notoriety and scholarships to some of the nation's top major colleges while playing for Orange County high schools.

The 12th edition of The Times' All-Orange County basketball team has a distinctive Pacific-10 Conference flavor, featuring four players who have signed national letters of intent to play in the conference next season. Brea-Olinda's Kevin Walker (UCLA), Saddleback's Bryant Walton (Cal), Katella's Bob Erbst (USC) and Mater Dei's Stuart Thomas (Stanford) head the list of selections.

Football has been king in the county going back to the early 1960s when Coach Clare Van Hoorebeke set the standards at Anaheim High. Through the years, the county's rich tradition has continued at Edison, Servite, Fountain Valley, El Toro, El Modena, Valencia and others where "Friday Night Lights" continue to shine. Few could argue that the best high baseball in America is played every year in the county. The programs at Esperanza and El Dorado are traditionally among the best in the nation.
