NEW YORK -- Chad Billingsley's reconstructive elbow surgery on Wednesday evening went as expected, the Dodgers announced. Billingsley won't be the only Dodger spending the coming months recovering from an operation, as reliever Shawn Tolleson is scheduled to undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a herniated disc in his lower back. Tolleson was called up from triple-A Albuquerque on April 12. He pitched that day in Arizona in relief of longtime friend Clayton Kershaw and walked in two runs.

Bruin Coach Terry Donahue said tailback Shawn Wills is definitely out of Saturday's game against USC at the Coliseum because of a sprained knee. So the tailback job will be shared by Kevin Williams, Ricky Davis and possibly Kevin Smith. Pauley Pavilion, the Morgan Center and the UCLA student store got a paint bath last Thursday night, and the signature was definitely USC's. Six of the culprits were apprehended.

When he heard last February that UCLA had signed Kevin Williams of Spring, Tex., widely regarded as the nation's No. 1 prep tailback prospect, Shawn Wills turned to his mother and said, "Well, he's got his work cut out for him." Wills, though, said it would be wrong to call him cocky. "I'm a pretty competitive person," he said. "And I'm confident." It's easy to see why. The freshman from Hanford, Calif.

It happened at the Rose Bowl Saturday: 6 p.m.--The setting remains lovely, but the stadium has grown old and outmoded. I wonder aloud if UCLA will be tempted to move into the Coliseum after it is renovated and am informed that there are six years remaining on the Bruins' contract with the Rose Bowl.

Jimmy Bonds gained a slight edge over Bret Johnson this spring in his bid to replace the departed Troy Aikman as UCLA's starting quarterback next fall, Coach Terry Donahue said Friday. Bonds shares top billing on the depth chart with the redshirt freshman, but Donahue made it clear after the Bruins' final spring scrimmage at the Rose Bowl that Bonds made a lasting impression on the coaching staff. "Jimmy Bonds has been a surprise," Donahue told reporters after the sophomore from Hart High in Newhall completed nine of 13 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns.

Ask any running back about his most memorable play and you will get a detailed description of some 80-yard run in which he miraculously escaped the clutches of defensive players. Therefore, it was somewhat of a surprise when UCLA's Shawn Wills volunteered another aspect of the game. Would you believe a block? Wills beamed when he told of blocking a linebacker during last season's game against Washington in Seattle. It wasn't an ordinary block.

It hasn't taken long for Brian Brown to stir up a tailback controversy at UCLA. In his first two games since returning to the lineup after missing five games with a hamstring injury, the sophomore from Gardena High has shown himself to be more versatile and a better receiver than Eric Ball, a fifth-year senior and stronger inside runner who carried the load in Brown's absence. And then, of course, there is freshman Shawn Wills, whose average of 7.

Just when it seemed that UCLA's football program was on the upswing, the Bruins have lost both of their tailbacks, Shawn Wills and Kevin Williams, for today's game against Arizona State at Sun Devil Stadium. Wills suffered a bruised knee in last Saturday night's game against Oregon State at Corvallis, Ore. He was expected to play against Arizona State, until he reinjured his knee in practice. Williams hurt his ankle in the Oregon State game, but the injury wasn't considered serious.
