Prosecutors have declined to file charges against a former Southern California basketball player who was arrested Sunday on suspicion of carjacking. The district attorney's office filed a document Tuesday that said investigators had insufficient evidence to charge Stais Boseman, 35. Deputy Dist. Atty. James Prudhomme said police were unable to contact the alleged victim and her boyfriend, who gave police bogus phone numbers. Prudhomme said the alleged victim was in the car with her boyfriend when Boseman allegedly jumped into the vehicle and drove off. Prosecutors said Boseman had agreed to drop the boyfriend's $20 debt to him if he could use the car. Boseman played briefly for the Houston Rockets.

Having a team loaded with all-stars doesn't guarantee victory. Keith Young, coach of Team Los Angeles in the Slam-n-Jam high school basketball tournament, can attest to that. After finishing as runner-up last year and featuring a team led by All-Southern Section players Stais Boseman of Inglewood Morningside and Cameron Murray of Glendora, Team Los Angeles started this week's tournament seeded third, behind all-star squads from New Orleans and New York.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.-For the briefest of moments Friday at the Charlotte Coliseum, USC was an authentic NCAA tournament team--leaping, running and experiencing something few thought it would this season. The Trojans were tied with Illinois with 5 minutes 19 seconds left, thanks to Danny Walker's leaning baseline jump shot, and the horrors of the first 35 minutes had vanished.

USC sophomore Stais Boseman will play in next week's Seton Hall basketball tournament after regaining his eligibility, campus sources said. Boseman was academically ineligible for the first six weeks of the season for the Trojans (4-4). Boseman, a 6-foot-4 guard, led the team in steals as a freshman last season.

USC Coach Henry Bibby and Illinois Coach Lon Kruger stressed the importance of the matchup between Trojan Stais Boseman and Fighting Illini point guard Kiwane Garris. However, the coaches' confidence in their own player varied. Asked by Illinois reporters if he had heard of Garris, Bibby snapped back: "Have you ever heard of Stais Boseman?" Bibby said that if the game came down to Boseman versus Garris, he "would take Stais." Kruger was more low key.

USC guard Stais Boseman will be academically ineligible for the first month of next basketball season and could sit out the entire season if his summer school grades are inadequate, The Times has learned. Boseman, a 6-foot-4 freshman from Inglewood who played in all 29 games last season and led the team with 38 steals, will sit out at least the first five games for the Trojans.

Stais Boseman said Saturday's Shrine game will not be his last in a football uniform. The former Morningside High athlete, who is bound for USC on a basketball scholarship, won't be able to play football until 1994. NCAA rules prohibit freshmen from playing a sport other than the one they signed for. "I've talked to (USC football Coach John) Robinson and he said he is open to all options," Boseman said.

If it had been expected it is likely USC would have done more, or perhaps at least something to celebrate its first NCAA tournament bid since 1992. Perhaps more than two players at Heritage Hall to watch the announcement on television, maybe even Coach Henry Bibby present to talk about being the 11th-seeded team in the Southeast region and matched against No. 15 Illinois on Friday in Charlotte, N.C.. Instead players were scattered across the Southland. Stais Boseman in Inglewood.

After playing at times this season like a team lacking confidence, USC had its most complete game yet with a 96-73 victory over Houston Wednesday night before 2,277 at the Sports Arena. Coming off an embarrassing loss at Loyola Marymount on Monday, the Trojans played like a team determined to erase its own doubts from the tipoff.

USC's new up-tempo offense may have sputtered down the stretch at the Sports Arena Friday night, but the Trojans had just enough left to defeat Lamar, 76-72, and win their first game in more than 10 months. After racing to a 17-point lead nine minutes into the second half before an announced crowd of 1,951, USC needed two free throws by Stais Boseman with 5.7 seconds remaining to hold off a furious Lamar rally and end a 14-game losing streak dating to last season.

I am extremely disappointed by the article that appeared in (the March 11) South Bay section of the Los Angeles Times. As a 22-year resident of the Morningside community and as principal of Morningside High, I find the article written by Barry Baum to be disturbing and journalistically inappropriate. Morningside has a positive and professional relationship with journalists in the South Bay. We seek the support of the media to enhance the educational and co-curricular programs of our school community.

Stais Boseman, one of the best all-around high school athletes in the state, said Sunday he would attend USC, where he plans to play both football and basketball. He will receive a basketball scholarship. Boseman was the first athlete at Inglewood Morningside High to start in both football and basketball four consecutive years. During the 1991-92 school year, Boseman led Morningside to the State Division III title in basketball and the Southern Section Division VIII championship in football.

USC and its top defensive player, Stais Boseman, found out the hard way that No. 12 Arizona doesn't need high-scoring Damon Stoudamire's points to win. With Boseman hawking Stoudamire all over the court and limiting the Wildcats' senior guard to 11 points and six shots, Arizona turned to Joseph Blair and Reggie Geary in handing the Trojans their eighth consecutive loss, 89-80, Thursday night before 3,565 at the Sports Arena.
