"The Trojan Women," at its best, is a tough grind for cast and audience. And the Old Globe's new version, at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, is not "Trojan Women" at its best. Euripides' 2,400-year-old war protest, believed written to censure his native Greece's aggression on neighboring islands, is an almost-unrelieved litany of misery and atrocity after the Greek conquest of Troy.

Washington held USC to 14% shooting in the first half and coasted to a 68-47 victory Friday night in a women's basketball game at the Lyon Center. The Trojans, who fell behind by 20 points at halftime, managed to cut the deficit to 11 with 15 minutes remaining. But the No. 7-ranked Huskies, led by Amy Mickleson's 17 points, gradually built up the lead. USC (4-12) was led by Rosalind Hodge, with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Shaundra Green added 13 for the Huskies (15-2). USC plays at No.

I find the vitriolic criticism unleashed by Laurie Winer on the production of Euripides' "The Trojan Women" unjustified and based on misunderstandings about the performance conventions of Greek tragedy (" 'Trojan' Tale Drowns in Excess," Calendar, June 12). There are three points that Winer attacks: the music (by Mimi Seton) and choreography (by Holly Harbinger); the adaptation by the director (Michael Arabian), and the "gimmicks" in the staging.

Ancient Greek tragedies are rarely staged in small theater--and basically never in our large houses--because they're intimidating to audiences and they demand a rhetorical and visceral passion daunting to most actors and directors. One experience with a Greek classic you would not regret is the stinging, moody evocation of the suffering of a captured city in director John Neville's production of Euripides' "The Trojan Women," exceptionally produced by the L.A.

South Dakota State forced 25 turnovers and upset No. 19 USC, 67-63, Friday night at Brookings, S.D. The Jackrabbits (2-0) were supposed to be a convenient stop for the Trojans on their way to Sunday's matchup with No. 6 Ohio State. Megan Vogel scores 22 points as the Jackrabbits posted their first win over a ranked team in three tries since moving to NCAA Division I. In all, they are 27-16 against Division I opponents since moving up at the start of the 2004-05 season.

When it was stated in the Morning Briefing (April 6) that Ohio State was the only other university, besides Michigan, to win NCAA championships in football, baseball and basketball, one school was forgotten. The many football and baseball NCAA championships won by the University of Southern California are well known. People forget that the USC also won the NCAA basketball championship when Cheryl Miller was there. B.R. PARTRIDGE West Hills
