This is expected to be a three-team race and Poly, the perennial champion, is not one of the three. 1. MILLIKAN--The Rams, who finished in a tie for second place last season, are experienced, quick and have depth.

Also back is 6-5 Eddie Carswell, who was second to Jarvis in rebounds. 2.

This is supposed to be a rebuilding year at Poly, which was co-champion of the Big Five Conference in 1985, but the Jackrabbits are still a solid favorite to win their seventh straight league title. 1. POLY--As usual, Leonard Russell (see front of section) isn't the only super star at Poly--the Jackrabbits also have Eugene Burkhalter and Mark Odom.

Friday night, UC Irvine sophomore Matt Farmer didn't sleep like a man who had a 316-point lead after the first day of decathlon competition in the Big West Conference track and field championships. "You have nightmares about losing when you have that big of a cushion," Farmer said. "I didn't get to sleep until 2:30 a.m. and woke up several times through the night. You start to wonder about things that could go wrong." Perhaps Farmer was too much of a weekend worrier.

When UC Irvine junior Matt Farmer woke up Saturday morning, his left ankle throbbing in pain because of a bone spur, he didn't think there was any way he could get over 10 hurdles in a race. A few hours and one cortisone shot later, Farmer cleared those hurdles and a whole lot more, winning the decathlon for the second consecutive year at the Big West Conference Track and Field Championships. Farmer trailed Fresno State's Tim Baker by three points going into the final event, the 1,500-meter run.

1. Poly--About the only thing that's changed is that Jim Barnett has left to coach Trabuco Hills and the Jackrabbits now have two head coaches--Thomas Whiting, who will handle the offense, and Jerry Jaso, who will guide the defense. The talent is as impressive as ever and should carry Poly (10-2 in '84) to yet another league title. The defense is solid with returning tackles Gilbert Moxley and Stacey Elliot, both 6-3 and 240, and linebackers Brian Tuliau (6-1, 215) and David Riley (6-4, 205).
