The videotape machine has been getting a workout this week at Mater Dei High School. Each day, Mater Dei's basketball players have huddled in the team room to watch the final minute of the Monarchs' 46-45 victory over Long Beach Poly last Saturday in the Southern California Division I boys' regional final at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The game featured a fluke, last-second three-point basket by guard Jason Quinn, a basket that erased Poly's 45-43 lead with 1.

Before moving to Stanford in 1982, Davis coached Boston College to a 100-47 record in five seasons and three post-season tournament appearances.

USC apparently got a running back, Jabari Jackson, from City College of San Francisco on Tuesday. Jackson, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound tailback, led San Francisco to a 10-1 record last fall, gaining 1,622 yards--he averaged 6.4 a carry--and 17 touchdowns. He also caught 26 passes for nearly 500 yards. Early reports had Jackson headed to Ohio State but his coach at CCSF, George Rush, said, "He's going to SC. He sent them his signed letter of intent [Tuesday]."

Not much was decided about USC's season Saturday at Maples Pavilion other than that Stanford is decidedly better--and that the Trojans increasingly are becoming their own worst enemy. The Cardinal beat the Trojans, 85-70, before 7,305, and once again USC was handicapped by the absence of one of its top players. Senior Jaha Wilson, the team's best inside player and sixth man, was suspended before the game for disciplinary reasons.

It doesn't bother Bob Toledo that he was UCLA's third choice, that he was hired as head football coach only after Rick Neuheisel and Gary Barnett had turned the job down. "I probably wasn't Elaine's first choice, either," said Toledo, pointing to his wife at his introductory press conference Friday, "and I've been with her for 28 years." So what about it, Elaine? "Actually, he was my fourth choice," she said. Obviously, this is a man who doesn't discourage easily.

It was Super Bowl media day at the Superdome Tuesday, and Denver wide receiver Mark Jackson was holding court from a podium. "So, what do you think of media day?" someone asked. "God created media day on Day One," Jackson said. "It's the greatest thing in the world. Where would we be without media day? No one would care about this game if it weren't for media day." Another question: "What's the strangest thing you've seen in town so far?" "Cyndi Lauper," was the answer.
