— When Stetson missed its first nine field-goal attempts, good shots most of them, it seemed over for the Hatters. When UCLA led by a couple of dozen points midway through the second half, this first-round NCAA game was all but over. The third-seeded Bruins advanced to the second round with a 66-49 win over the Hatters (24-9) on Saturday. UCLA (26-7) will play sixth-seeded Oklahoma on Monday at 4:15 p.m. PDT at St. John Arena. The Sooners (23-10) beat 11th-seeded Central Michigan 78-73 here in Saturday's first game.

Larry Brown was pleased but almost embarrassed the way his third-ranked Kansas Jayhawks demolished Missouri, 100-66, Tuesday night at Lawrence, Kan. "We just played great. I don't know any other explanation," Brown said. With Danny Manning scoring 27 points and leading a quick getaway, the Jayhawks scored the first nine points of the game, and Missouri never got closer than seven. "We looked ready in the locker room, and I had a feeling we would play well," Brown said.

Brad Stetson ("Crusades Reap a Political Harvest," Commentary, July 27) is certainly correct when he states that the religious right has organized successful grass-roots campaigns with underlying political implications. Since the 1980s no one can doubt the political savvy of evangelical Christians. However, despite the political success of the religious right, mainstream America is not as easily polarized as the rhetoric of Stetson and others would proclaim. For example, opinion poll after opinion poll reveals that the people of this country believe a woman should have the right to an abortion although perhaps not an absolute right.

Hank Gathers scored 38 points and Bo Kimble added 35 as Loyola Marymount overpowered Stetson, 125-95, Friday in the first round of the Mazda Gator Bowl basketball tournament. Loyola (2-1) will play Jacksonville, which defeated Campbell, 87-67, for the tournament championship at 5 p.m. (PST). Gathers, a 6-7 senior, broke the tournament record of 36 points set by Auburn's Chuck Person in 1983 against Villanova. Gathers also led all rebounders with 16.

I loved reading "Home on the Range" (Aug. 10). It took me back to the day I met Crash Corrigan at Corriganville in 1958. I had my movie camera, the old 8-mm one, with me, and asked him if he would pose for me. Instead, he took the camera from me, handed it to a bystander, put his arm around my waist and said, "Now walk toward the camera!" The handsome actor in his white Stetson and me, both smiling, still young, will live forever in that roll of film, even though now he is gone and I have become a senior citizen.

The difference of opinion was evident. UC Irvine Coach Pat Douglass was full of praise, calling Saturday's 67-62 Big West Conference loss to Idaho a matter of fate. A bounce here, a basket there--an act of God, perhaps?--and the 3,795 in the Kibbie Dome might not have left so happy. But Adam Stetson, Irvine's 6-foot-7 forward, was unwilling to cast this game to the wind. "We can't wait for breaks," said Stetson, who had 16 points and nine rebounds.

College of Charleston's trip to Florida nearly turned into a total loss. But the 25th-ranked Cougars overcame a poor second half and held off a late charge from winless Stetson for a 66-64 victory Sunday at Deland, Fla. Marcus Johnson scored 17 points to lead the Cougars (7-1), who were coming off an 82-64 loss to Central Florida on Thursday. The Cougars shot 65% in the first half and led, 45-32, at halftime.

UC Irvine forward Adam Stetson probably will miss the Anteaters' season opener against Pepperdine Tuesday because of a foot injury. Stetson, who has been bothered by a sore ligament in his left foot since the end of last season, was scratched from tonight's exhibition game against the California All-Stars. Stetson, a 6-foot-7 forward, averaged 12 points to lead the Anteaters last season.

It couldn't be better. That's how UCLA women's basketball Coach Cori Close described what happened Monday after the NCAA women's college basketball tournament draw was revealed. The Bruins (25-7) received a No. 3 seeding, which is the best they have ever received. They will play their first game, against 14th-seeded Stetson (24-8), and, if they win, their second game against either sixth-seeded Oklahoma or 11th-seeded Central Michigan, at what is a neutral site, in Columbus, Ohio.

He was 94. The death was announced on his website . In his 1954 book "I Rode With the Ku Klux Klan," Kennedy wrote that he gained entrance to the Klan by posing as an encyclopedia salesman and...

Two years ago, when Hatco--the Texas firm that creates Stetsons--advertised for help, they did so only with the vaguest plan of mustering new blood. Designer Gary Rosenthal, now entering his 70s, was hardly ready to retire. Although he'd launched each Stetson made for almost 30 years, working with an icon tends to energize a man. And Stetson--crown of ranchers, movie cowboys and weekend good old boys--has gleamed with legendary luster since the Civil War.

UC Irvine forward Adam Stetson was in good condition after minor surgery on a partially collapsed lung Thursday. Following practice, Stetson complained of chest pains and was taken to Norman Regional Hospital in Norman, Okla., where the Anteaters are preparing to play in the Sooner Holiday Classic. "He sat down after practice and was having difficulty breathing," Irvine Coach Pat Douglass said. "He had said his rib cage was bothering him."

A man dubbed the "Stetson bandit" for wearing a 10-gallon hat in a string of three bank robberies apparently dropped his disguise in his fourth crime, when he robbed $3,000 from a Great Western Bank branch in Glendale last week, police said. Glendale police released a photograph taken by the bank's security camera during the Sept. 10 robbery, showing a white man between 30 and 40 years old, with thinning blond hair and sunglasses.

Rob Strickland, James Madison's 6-foot-11, 285-pound center, tried to post up against UC Irvine in the men's basketball game on Dec. 20. He received a two-handed shove that sent him away from the basket. Bret Jepsen, Brigham Young's 6-11, 250-pound center, raised his hands to ask for the ball in the key on Dec. 22. He was grabbed and thrown under the basket. Yes, Adam Stetson, Irvine's no-nonsense junior forward, is back. "Those were big guys," Stetson said. "I had to let them know they couldn't do those things to us all night.
