LONDON - As Ryan Bailey recalls it, he was an 8- or 9-year-old commencing a now decades-long affair with water polo and he would peek to the side of the pool where the coach's kid stood alone, throwing a ball against a wall. As Tony Azevedo recalls it, it was a few years later when he actually jumped in that pool at Long Beach State, and most notably a then-teenage Bailey predictably threw around the interloper much like Azevedo used to toss that ball idly to himself. "I've known Tony since he was a baby," Bailey said Friday.

 L.A. Windward Coach Miguel Villegas told his players on Thursday that he will not be returning as basketball coach next season. He will finish out this season as coach. A school spokesman confirmed that Villegas won't be returning. Villegas could not be reached for comment. Villegas guided Windward to two state titles and built the program into a small-schools power. Villegas, a South Gate grad, helped develop NBA player Darius Morris and Harvard standout Wesley Saunders, among others, since he took over the program in 2003.

For someone so far behind schedule, Ryan Bailey is way ahead of schedule. He's a 21-year-old sophomore on the UCLA basketball team, but a 21-year-old sophomore who has become an occasional starter when even he didn't expect to be playing big minutes. He's a key reason the Bruins are 5-2 and ranked 12th, the only losses having come against top-five teams Maryland and Kentucky. But his has never been the normal path.

 There were so many intriguing story lines for Wednesday's Beverly Hills tournament game between Loyola and Brentwood. There was former Loyola assistant Ryan Bailey taking on his mentor, Loyola Coach Jamal Adams. There was Arizona State-bound point guard Tra Holder of Brentwood facing off against Arizona-bound Parker Jackson-Cartwright. There was 7-foot UCLA signee Thomas Welsh of Loyola taking on 6-7 Maxwell Kupchak, the son of the Lakers general manager. It created for an intense, tight battle, with No. 3-ranked Loyola (6-0)

Terry Schroeder, coach of the U.S. men's water polo team, announced Wednesday the 14-man roster he says he'll take to the Olympic Games in London this summer. One problem, though - Olympic water polo teams are limited to 13 players. Because of an injury to center JW Krumpholz, who suffered a concussion during pregame warmups at the FINA World League Prelims, Schroeder chose to keep an extra player on the U.S. team for next week's FINA World League Super Final in Kazakhstan. The U.S. must submit a 13-man Olympic roster by June 18 but the team can take an alternate to London.

NO. 24 GONZAGA (4-2) at NO. 11 UCLA (3-0), 2 p.m., KXTA (1150) and Fox Sports Net 2--Not only are the Bruins without JaRon Rush, suspended indefinitely Friday, but Ryan Bailey is questionable because of an arch problem in his right foot. That means UCLA may be down two prominent wing players as it faces a team that lives offensively on the perimeter.

The playing time of Ryan Bailey, once the Bruins' third guard, has been cut dramatically because of continued problems with his defense, and the play of Baron Davis and Earl Watson. Bailey averaged 18 minutes a game his first 20 appearances, but has broken double digits only once in the last five. He's at seven minutes per in that time, capped by the two-minute cameo Sunday against Syracuse. "We've got a lot of good players," said Bailey.

The Bailey Era at Loyola High School came to an end last Friday with the Cubs' 55-53 loss to Glendora in a Division I-A quarterfinal game at Glendale College. Ryan Bailey and his brother, Toby, a freshman at UCLA, had been part of Loyola's basketball program for the past five years. "Having both of us play for the team meant a lot to the school," said Bailey.

All three players who had been on year-to-year scholarships, allowing the Bruins flexibility in recruiting, have full rides this season. Ryan Bailey, Sean Farnham and Todd Ramasar have scholarships partly because UCLA's freshman class includes only one player, Jason Kapono. The change avoids what would have been noteworthy oversights for Bailey and Farnham, since they are likely to play prominent roles. "It's worked out nice," Coach Steve Lavin said of the trio.

LONDON - Going into Saturday's group-play match against Serbia, Tony Azevedo, captain of the U.S. water polo team, must have felt a bit like a law student getting an advance peek at the bar exam. Although the game wasn't exactly meaningless, the Americans have already qualified for the cross-over stage, where they're likely to meet Serbia again. That made the Americans' 11-6 loss to the tournament favorites a valuable chance to study. "From every loss, you learn a great deal," Azevedo said.

LONDON -- A little bit tired and definitely tested the last week, the U.S. men's water polo team needed a break and found a reasonable host. The U.S. beat Britain 13-7 Thursday in a preliminary match of the Olympics, taking a 7-0 lead and never facing a serious challenge after that. A first-ever gold medal for the program is still a ways from being decided, but the U.S. improved to 3-0 and moved atop Group B at the Olympic Park water polo arena. The U.S. needed a break after tight victories over Montenegro, 8-7, and Romania, 10-8.

LONDON -- The U.S. men's water polo team opened the Olympic tournament Sunday with an 8-7 preliminary-round victory over Montenegro. The U.S. men's team won the silver medal at the Beijing Games but has not won a medal at a major tournament since then. Montenegro was the runner-up at this year's European championships. Montenegro scored first, with 3:52 left in the first quarter, but the U.S. answered before the quarter ended on a goal by Ryan Bailey. The U.S. took a 2-1 lead on Tim Hutten's goal but that was matched by Montenegro's Nikola Janovic.

Ryan Bailey stood at the free-throw line Saturday with the game on the line. "I know if he would have missed them, I would have killed him," teammate Rico Hines said. "We're roommates, so when we got home I would have strangled him." Bailey, who had made five of eight this season and 58.3% of his attempts last season, banked in the first try and got a generous bounce off the heel of the rim on the second with 14.

With a last round of roster cuts looming ahead of this summer's London Olympics, U.S. Water Polo Coach Terry Schroeder will get one final look at his team in action when it plays a series of exhibitions in Southern California against Croatia and Hungary, the defending Olympic champion, beginning Saturday at Newport Harbor High School. Schroeder needs to trim three players from a 16-man roster that includes 11 former Olympians, among them three-time Olympians Tony Azevedo, the team captain, and Ryan Bailey.
