Normally, Jaason Pruett does it all for the St. Francis High basketball team. Thursday night, all he did was sit on the bench and clap. Pruett, in foul trouble almost from the opening tip, didn't have much to clap about though. The host Golden Knights lost, 63-45, to St. John Bosco in a matchup of the Del Rey League's top teams. "Every time he twitched, he got a foul," St. Francis Coach John Jordan said of Pruett, who picked up his third foul in the first quarter.

The post-Michael Cooper era began in earnest for the Sparks on Saturday. So did the uncertainty of playing without DeLisha Milton-Jones, who is scheduled to undergo surgery next week on her injured right knee.

Lisa Leslie could be forgiven if she had been sleepwalking through the Sparks' game with San Antonio on Wednesday. After all, she hadn't been back from Athens that long. And when the game started, it was already Thursday morning to her body clock. But when Leslie is going well, so are the Sparks. And she was in good form Wednesday, scoring a season-high 27 points and grabbing 13 rebounds in the Sparks' 77-69 victory in front of 8,730 at Staples Center.

St. Francis High basketball Coach John Jordan approached Dave Craig with a challenge recently. If the struggling Golden Knights were to win, Jordan told his senior forward, Craig must improve on his 11.1 points-a-game scoring average. Message received.

The Sparks have had the WNBA's best record for more than two weeks now. But the last couple of games they have played as though they deserve it. In front of an ear-splitting crowd of 18,997, mostly preteens for the annual Camp Day game, the Sparks rolled to their second straight lopsided home win, 96-76, over the Washington Mystics at Staples Center on Wednesday. The Sparks (16-7) gave the crowd plenty of reasons to keep the arena noise at rock-concert levels.
