Six Southern Section wrestlers won individual championships, and Victor Valley High School took the team title Saturday night as the CIF State Meet concluded with its championship rounds before 7,000 in Selland Arena.

Victor Valley amassed 75 points and finished well ahead of second-place Sacramento Overfelt (59 1/2).

He winked. Floyd Mayweather Jr. had been caught by an overhand right and fell into the ropes, forced to grab and hold Victoriano Sosa to stem the attack. There were 45 seconds remaining in the sixth round and the crowd was chanting Sosa's last name, imploring the upset-minded challenger to finish off Mayweather and take his World Boxing Council lightweight title. But while in the clinch, an unconcerned Mayweather looked down at the ringside broadcasting team and winked, as if he knew something.

FRESNO -- In his somewhat star-crossed but undeniably star-bright career, Floyd Mayweather has headlined cards in such boxing hotbeds as Detroit, San Francisco and, of course, Las Vegas. But never in Fresno. Of course, no one has ever fought for a title in the sleepy San Joaquin Valley city.

When El Camino High School wrestler John Grubbs won his first state title last season at 101 pounds, he dedicated it to his father. When his younger brother, Mike, became an outstanding wrestler at 101 pounds, John moved up to the 108-pound division. When his father died this year and his older brother, Michio, became the head of the household, he dedicated the state tournament to him. And again he won. You see, Grubbs is a giver.

As he walked off the court at halftime, San Diego State forward Juan Espinoza glanced up at the scoreboard. Once, twice, three times. "I wasn't sure that we were really winning," Espinoza said. As incredible as that might have been, the Aztecs were winning.

Irvine's basketball team has never come into this town brimming with confidence, but the Anteaters--0-11 at Fresno State's Selland Arena--arrived Friday feeling pretty good about themselves and their chances of ending that streak tonight. They have won three in a row, escaping from Stockton with an 87-80 victory over University of the Pacific Thursday night. If the Anteaters (9-6 overall, 4-2 in the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn.) are in a groove, the Bulldogs (4-11, 1-5) are in a rut.

Fresno State has fallen on hard times since Boyd Grant's last season as coach in 1986, but a measure of the Bulldogs' former dominance remains at home in Selland Arena, where Cal State Fullerton suffered a 73-65 loss Thursday after going cold in the final 10 minutes. The Titans went without a basket for 6 minutes 50 seconds, and scored only four points after Agee Ward's two free throws gave Fullerton a four-point lead with 9:54 remaining.
