There is one thing that Calipatria and La Jolla Country Day have in common. They each made it to the San Diego Section 1-A boys' basketball final. That's where the similarities end. La Jolla Country Day, with a minimum height of 6-foot 4-inches on its front line, gears its game to getting the ball into its big players and controlling the backboards. Calipatria's tallest player is center Sean Taylor at 6-1.

WASHINGTON -- Linemen crouched, linebackers barked, cornerbacks shifted. But something was wrong. For their defense's first play from scrimmage Sunday, the Washington Redskins fielded only 10 men. They were one man short. Sean Taylor was missing, and he hadn't been replaced. In tribute to their fallen teammate, shot and killed last week in his suburban Miami home, the Redskins lined up without him at safety -- indeed, without anyone. Reed Doughty, for one, wasn't worried.

Washington Redskin rookie safety Sean Taylor was arrested by the Virginia State Police early Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and declined to take an alcohol blood or breath test, according to law enforcement officials. Taylor, the No. 5 pick in the draft, from Miami, was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond and faces a Dec. 1 hearing. Taylor missed Thursday's practice, an absence the club considered unexcused after it was initially unable to contact him.

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot to death in what police suspect was a random burglary, and there are no indications the player was targeted or knew his assailant. "There's nothing that indicates thus far that there's some kind of involvement on the victim's part," said Robert Parker, director of the Miami-Dade County Police Department, adding it was "more like a random event."

I have just had the pleasure to scan Grant's letter. Animadversive and contumelious delineations? Insinuative imputation of suppositious semicentennial depressions? The depth of our fetter? Gracious me. Grant should be transplanted with all speed to the nearest emergency room. He has obviously either swallowed a dictionary or Alexander Haig. SEAN TAYLOR Van Nuys
