for four days. After that, Parks, one of the most sought-after recruits in the nation, made his way to Duke University, breaking the heart of Bruin Coach Jim Harrick, who desperately wanted the former Huntington Beach Marina High star to remain in Southern California. Instead, Harrick and Bruin fans will have to settle for watching Parks in the U.S. Olympic Festival, which is being played at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.

UCLA Coach Jim Harrick, who has heard his share of criticism for big-game coaching through his eight-year Bruin tenure, bristled when someone asked him if he had been outcoached by Princeton's Pete Carril during the Tigers' 43-41 victory Thursday. After a 10-second slow burn, Harrick said: "I'm not sure that you're really qualified to understand what coaching is, to ask that question."

Judging by the comments of UCLA Coach Jim Harrick and other Bruin starters [Feb. 15], they still haven't gotten the message as to why the starters were booed during the Oregon State game. For their information, it was not just a few fans, nor was it just the alumni, nor was it just from the here-today-gone-tomorrow fans. The booing came from a great many present, including many in the student body. It was not because the fans expected a "great effort" as Coach Harrick thinks. It was because there was little team effort from the starters.

I noticed recently that UCLA Coach Jim Harrick has signed yet another top national recruit, this one from faraway Tulsa, Okla. Hmm, I wonder if (the player) has ever heard of Westwood and even knows that it is located out here in Southern California. Well, his future Bruin teammates will be able to straighten him out.

This letter is a response to the recent cheap attacks on UCLA Coach Jim Harrick, the only coach in Bruin history to win 20 games in each of his first four years. His recruiting has been competitive with other big-time basketball programs. Even John Wooden needed 17 years to win his first national title. Coincidentally, it has been 17 years since the last Bruin championship. True, the Bruins lost three in a row recently, but that happens to most teams during the course of a season. One would think that a 23-4 record is a disaster after reading the negative letters of last Saturday.

If Tuesday night's exhibition is any indication, UCLA's basketball team will be thought of as anything but boring this season. The high-scoring Bruins warmed up for their season-opening game against Indiana on Friday at Springfield, Mass., by routing Trencin of Czechoslovakia, 112-50, at Pauley Pavilion. Behind 20 steals, eight blocked shots and five dunks, UCLA dominated Trencin, which is 0-3 on its West Coast tour.

The British Columbia Lions were able to keep the Grey Cup in Canada without their leading touchdown maker--red, white and blue wide receiver Mike Trevathan. The former Thousand Oaks High and Montana receiver missed a semifinal and the final because of hepatitis--but not before scoring 12 touchdowns in this, his fourth season in the Canadian Football League. "We would not have won the Grey Cup without Mike's contributions," Coach Dave Ritchie said Tuesday.

Somewhere there must be a baseball team for which Jim Harrick and his UCLA Bruins haven't thrown out the first ball, or a politician who hasn't congratulated them on their national title. But there aren't many. They threw out first balls for the Dodgers and Angels, and last week Harrick did it for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. They have been honored by the President, the mayor, the California Legislature and have met the defense secretary and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.

Consider the psychology of the dunk. Done correctly, it can be a withering experience for those dunked upon. Go ask an expert such as Charles O'Bannon. "You get a dunk, it brings the other team back to reality," O'Bannon said. "Then you get another dunk and they say 'Wow, they're playing so well.' There's not much you can do."

Larry Byrne was playing golf at the Oahu Country Club in Hawaii, when a member of his foursome shouted, "Look out, it's charging." He looked up to see a black wild pig, about 150 to 200 pounds, running at him. "I used my carry bag like a matador uses a cape, putting it front of the pig, but it charged right through it," Byrne told Golf World. Byrne then hit the pig on the snout with his sand wedge. No effect. Then, he hit the pig again between the eyes. The pig wasn't fazed.

Fred Miller, San Diego State athletic director, made the announcement late Tuesday afternoon at a crowded news conference in Peterson Gym before several players and members of the Aztec athletic department.
