The future seems to have arrived a year early for the girls' basketball team at Inglewood Morningside High School. All of which bodes poorly for the competition in the Southern Section. Coach Frank Scott's team is 16-2 and ranked third in The Times' poll, the losses coming against No. 2 Lynwood in the Artesia Tournament and No. 6 Woodland Hills Louisville in the Thousand Oaks Tournament.

What: The Bruin 100, by Scott Howard-Cooper (Addax Publishing Group). There can be little argument about the choices, only the order of importance. But that's part of the fun. And this book is definitely a fun read. Howard-Cooper has taken on the formidable task of selecting, in order of importance, the top 100 basketball games played by the storied UCLA Bruins, winners of a record 11 NCAA championships. Well, there's 11 games right there.

If you insist on finding space for Bill Plaschke's columns, could you at least keep him off the Laker beat [Oct. 19]? Laker coverage is my primary reason for reading The Times. Please let Mike Downey, Mark Heisler and Scott Howard-Cooper handle the Lakers. Wait, I've got it! Have Plaschke cover the Clippers! BRIAN TAYLOR Los Angeles

Clipper guard Gary Grant has been fined an undisclosed amount by the team and ordered to apologize to Times sportswriter Scott Howard-Cooper in the aftermath of an April 21 locker-room altercation between the two. Grant, after the Clippers' final game of the season, put his hand on Howard-Cooper's face and shoved him backward after accusing Howard-Cooper of not writing about an off-season charity tennis event Grant had planned.

In response to Scott Howard-Cooper's article regarding the Clippers' poor image (July 25), those of us at Widney High School feel that the Clippers should not be judged solely by their errors or the won-lost column. What the franchise does to improve the surrounding community needs to be taken into consideration. In this area, the Clippers are a model organization. Widney High is an inner-city school serving students with severe disabilities. In the fall of 1991, the Clippers became partners with Widney in the L.A. Unified School Adopt-a-School program and they immediately began to make positive contributions to our school.

A new commissioner will be named. The fate of foreign exchange students playing varsity sports will be decided. The referees are angry. Coaches are sure to be.

Thursday's council meeting in Norwalk will bring decisions and action--and maybe some surprises--on at least four significant issues, all of which figure to have long-range importance. In a nutshell: --The commissioner.

Football coaches at the University of Washington figured they landed a real sleeper when they signed Dana Hall of Pomona Ganesha, a 6-foot 3-inch safety who didn't get a lot of attention outside his area. A lot of people still may not know Hall, who as a football player didn't even make an all-conference team. But he has become impossible to overlook in track.

Brigid Freyne of Riverside Poly was on the outside looking in, a self-acknowledged unknown in girls' cross-country circles. A junior, she won at Mt. San Antonio College in October, but, most figured, that was only because Melissa Sutton of Newbury Park chose not to run. When the two met a month later, Sutton beat Freyne by 12 seconds for the Southern Section 4-A title. Another meeting in early December brought similar results.

Having just broken two world records at the Phillips 66/U.S. Swimming Indoor National Championships last week in Orlando, Fla., Janet Evans, holder of three world bests, turns her attention to competing in . . . High school meets? Actually, it's not as strange as it appears. At least not in Southern California, where, according to Tom Milich, Evans' coach at El Dorado High of Placentia, "the competition she will face at the CIF finals is almost comparable to what she'll face at nationals."

As the veteran members of Bishop Amat High School's basketball team walked off the court last Friday night, they talked about how good it felt to finally have beaten Mater Dei of Santa Ana, of how they had waited four years to beat the Monarchs, the preeminent Southern Section team of the 1980s. Alex Acosta, Bishop Amat's second-year coach, knew the feeling. He was a senior guard on the last previous team at the La Puente school to beat Mater Dei. That was in 1978.

Quick-change artist: Randy Marquez of Hacienda Heights Los Altos always played center in football, until he quarterbacked the junior varsity to a 9-1 record last season, and his versatility became obvious. So, playing with the varsity this season, he has done both for a team that is 7-1 and among the best in the Eastern Conference. As the starting center, he has big shoulder pads and wears uniform No. 58. As the backup quarterback to David Olson, Marquez wears smaller pads and No. 12.

Ian Alsen of Granada Hills High School wanted a good run Saturday at the Mt. San Antonio College Invitational. In a way, he needed one. He knew he wouldn't have another chance to prove his ability, which is why his fourth-place finish at the nation's largest prep cross-country meet was all the more frustrating. The big time came and went. For most others it will be back, with the first state meet Nov. 28 in Fresno. But for Alsen, who would have been a good bet for a top-10 finish, and the L.A.

Down the stretch they come . . . A brief update of the high school football recruiting scene a day before national letters of intent can be signed: Quarterback Jamelle Holieway, the City 4-A Player of the Year from Los Angeles Banning, will sign with Oklahoma. One of Orange County's biggest prospects, 6-foot 7, 275-pound Mike Beech of Newport Harbor, canceled a recent trip to SMU and then chose UCLA over USC.

On paper, at least, the Millikan High School basketball team seemed innocent enough. The Rams from Long Beach went 13-11 last season and were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round. Only one player with any substantial amount of playing time shot better than 50% from the field, just two averaged in double figures in scoring, and only two others exceeded eight points a game, and one of those was a senior. Bill Odell is basically coaching the same team this season, in personnel at least.

Sheff and 19 others are exempt from qualifying in the championship flight (those with handicaps of 0-4).

The end of his true playing life--but more important, the end of the constant travel and practice--occurred for Keith Fergus in Dallas in May. Fergus, a million-dollar winner on the PGA Tour and 1983 champion of the Bob Hope Desert Classic, shot 78-66 and became one of the happiest men to miss a cut. "I'll always remember that 66," he said the other day. "That was a good one to quit on." Fergus had been saying all along that he would spend 10 or 11 years on the tour, then leave the grind behind.
