Loyola Marymount met its match Sunday, largely because Nevada Las Vegas' Stacey Augmon met his mismatch. At first it was Tony Walker. Later it was Bo Kimble. Often, it was whoever was bold enough or close enough to try, sometimes two at a time. The Loyola players who could match Augmon's 6-foot-8 height couldn't match his quickness. The quicker ones couldn't match his height. And in the open court, UNLV teammate Larry Johnson says, "one-on-one, nobody can stop Stacey."

Jerry Tarkanian says he feels particularly bad for Larry Johnson and Stacy Augmon, who decided to remain for their senior seasons at UNLV, foregoing the NBA draft and probable first-round selection. Now the two stars have to play their final season under the dark cloud of NCAA sanctions with no possibility of winning a second national championship. Gee, poor Johnson and Augmon. Now they might just stick around campus long enough to get a post-secondary education. Mr. Tarkanian should take some consolation in this, but I doubt academic achievement ranks very high on his list of priorities.

When Muir High's basketball team fell behind Mission Viejo for the first time Tuesday night, Mustang Coach Mike O'Connor expected the worst. Instead, he saw his team at its best. "I could just see us cranking up bombs from the outside," O'Connor said after Muir disposed of the Diablos, 69-58, in the Southern Section 4-A playoffs at El Toro High. "A couple of hurried shots here and there and we could have been down by five real quick."

It was billed as the final real roadblock on Nevada Las Vegas' path to an unbeaten regular season. New Mexico State, No. 11 in the nation, playing at home--a repeat of last season's upset? No surprise. No upset. No repeat. Little real problem. No. 1 Las Vegas' season remains as perfect as Larry Johnson's average from jamming range after an 86-74 victory over the Aggies in a Big West Conference game Monday night.

Miami and New Orleans will have one more chance to shove, scream and squabble. The only first-round series in the NBA playoffs to last beyond five games will go the distance. On a day when the New Orleans Hornets were the verbal and physical aggressors, defensive specialists P.J. Brown and George Lynch gave Baron Davis enough offensive help to force a deciding Game 7 with an 89-83 victory Sunday. "It's going to be a war, just like every other game in this series.

The Dallas Cowboys won't be playing in the Super Bowl this year, but the franchise still intrigues Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: "Observing the Cowboys is like owning an ant farm. You see life far below the surface, way down in the dirt. "Many teams have sex and drug scandals. The Cowboys have misadventures so deep and complex they make a Russian novel read like a Nike billboard." * Trivia time: Who was the first former USC player to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl?

Alonzo Mourning was his dominant old self in his second game since having a kidney transplant 11 months ago, making back-to-back layups in the second overtime to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 111-106 victory over the Chicago Bulls Friday night at Chicago. Though Mourning said before the game that he' has asked the Nets for a contract buyout so he can go to a team with a better chance of winning, he promised it wouldn't affect his play.
