If there are any shrieking teenage girls clutching camera phones whenever Beverly Hills High is playing a basketball game, they're probably focused on the team's starting point guard, Romeo Miller, rapper, TV star and pop idol. Miller walked into the Beverly Hills gym 90 minutes before game time last week, wearing a red ski cap, and most of the Hawthorne cheerleaders turned in unison toward him. "He's a cutie," one gushed.

Ohio State star Greg Oden will make himself available for the NBA draft, his father told the Indianapolis Star in a story on its website Friday night. The 7-foot center is widely considered a possible No. 1 draft pick, and Greg Oden Sr. said he was comfortable with his son's decision. "He's the kind of kid that, even though he'll have a lot of money, he needs to do more than just basketball," Oden Sr. said. "They had an exciting season, but why take the chance on him getting hurt?"

Two games into the season, Wilmington Banning is looking for a new football coach after the resignation Tuesday of Randy Block. Block resigned despite the administration's desire that he stay, according to Morris Noble, an assistant principal in charge of athletics. "We wanted him to continue. When he took the job, he knew it was a tough job, a tough community that cares about football," Noble said. "We lost the first game, and we had some problems, and he said he couldn't deal with it anymore."

Tim Floyd had no choice. With his starters hobbled by leg cramps and forwards Davon Jefferson and Taj Gibson having fouled out late against Oregon on Saturday at McArthur Court, the USC coach had no alternative except to turn to his bench. It was a bench that had been outscored, 123-25, through the Trojans' first six Pacific 10 Conference games. Enter Angelo Johnson and Keith Wilkinson.

Davon Jefferson has waited two years longer than he originally expected to play college basketball, so what's a few more days? The USC freshman forward who missed roughly two weeks of preseason practice because of a sprained knee could make his debut this week when the Trojans play in the Anaheim Classic beginning Thursday against San Diego, though Coach Tim Floyd on Tuesday refused to make any promises.

Tim Floyd repeatedly made a point of saying early in his USC coaching career that teams needed to learn how to win at home before they could achieve success on the road. He hopes the adage no longer holds true. Floyd's Trojans face their first road test of the season tonight against the Citadel after stumbling at home in their opener, 96-81, to Mercer. After tonight, USC will play four more road games before returning to the Galen Center.

The day before USC played UCLA in February 2006, Tim Floyd flew to Cincinnati to watch O.J. Mayo compete in a high school basketball game before doubling back to guide his Trojans to an upset victory over the Bruins. The USC coach won't have to travel quite as far to keep tabs on the anticipated star of his latest recruiting class. Compton High senior guard DeMar DeRozan could sign a national letter of intent with the Trojans as soon as today, the first day of the early signing period.

It was hard to imagine that two games into his return from a six-week injury layoff, Daniel Hackett would be averaging 21.5 points, 6.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds, prompting an opposing coach to gush that he "was the guy we couldn't control." But that was South Carolina Coach Dave Odom's assessment of the USC sophomore guard Saturday night, after Hackett showed that he might be his team's most complete player in the early going after returning from a broken jaw.
