Of all the season-ending disappointments suffered by Southland women's college teams last season, probably none compares to UC Santa Barbara's opening-round defeat in the NCAA tournament. The team, which had gone 15-0 in the Big West Conference for a second consecutive season and was ranked ninth in the nation in one poll, hosted Rice in its opening NCAA game--and lost, 67-64. A crusher, to be sure. But there was an even bigger one, just over the horizon.

The popular image of UC Santa Barbara is that of a party school, situated steps from the ocean and favored by surfers and beach bums. But a lesser-known reality is emerging: Behind the doors of the physics and chemistry labs, world-renowned scientists are conducting groundbreaking research. The two Nobel prizes awarded to UC Santa Barbara professors Tuesday are likely to bring public prestige to a university whose academic credentials have been recognized within the scientific world for decades.

It wasn't money. It wasn't prestige, nor the perfect weather. What lured one of Japan's top scientists to the University of California campus here was a chance to work with the very best in his once-lonely quest to replace the lightbulb with a better idea. Shuji Nakamura could have had his pick of universities on either side of the Pacific Rim.

The most successful women's basketball program in Southern California was amply rewarded Sunday for having the nation's longest winning streak. The ninth-ranked UC Santa Barbara Gauchos, who won their 26th consecutive game last Saturday in taking the Big West Conference tournament championship, will host first- and second-round games in the West Regional. The No. 4-seeded Gauchos, who haven't lost since falling to Kansas on Dec.

The Hull truth and nothing but, amazing as it sounds. Mark Hull, freshman pre-law major at UC Santa Barbara, moves from the wing to power forward and leads the Gauchos out of a tailspin and into the Big West Conference first division. Power forward? Anybody who saw Hull at Hoover High recalls a skinny 6-foot-6 scorer with a silky shot but little muscle. However, Hull gained 15 pounds to 190 while redshirting last year. He's not exactly Hulk Hogan, but he can bang enough to handle the position.

The FBI scored its first major break in efforts to find the saboteurs responsible for this week's hacking assault on major Internet Web sites. A standard desktop personal computer in a UC Santa Barbara research lab played a role in the attack on the Web site CNN.com. The discovery by university officials could provide an important first step in following an electronic road map that eventually leads back to the hackers.

Southland college baseball teams enjoyed a successful decade in the 1990s as Pepperdine won its first national title in 1992, Cal State Fullerton its third in 1995 and USC its 12th in 1998. Long Beach State and UCLA also made College World Series appearances during a decade in which the balance of power in the sport supposedly shifted to the Southeast. Louisiana State won four World Series titles during the '90s and Miami won the title last season.

UC Santa Barbara researchers have discovered a lower jawbone containing three tiny teeth from a house mouse-size mammal that lived on the island of Madagascar about 165 million years ago--while dinosaurs dominated the planet. The finding contradicts the widely held idea that mammals did not begin to develop until the dinosaurs became extinct. The finding of such early specimens from the Southern Hemisphere also contradicts the idea that mammals developed first in the north, the researchers said.

It was 1969. The revolution was coming and for this crowd the enemy was "Tio Taco," wannabe gringos who forgot where they came from. More than 100 men and women, militant Chicanos, met in Santa Barbara with a vague notion that the tranquil beachside city would be ground-zero for their movement. They could smell it in the air. Before they left, they had put together El Plan.
