Perhaps the most important game in this season's BCS horn of plenty will be played Saturday night, with the vast majority of college football fans already warm and cuddly and tucked in. If you are in the East, you might catch the ending by setting your alarm for 3 a.m. This is the essence of the University of Hawaii's problem. It has a very good football team -- unbeaten as a matter of fact. But few know about it and even fewer care. Some schools have special-teams problems.

Tim Carey, a former Los Alamitos High quarterback, apologized Wednesday after pleading no contest to two gambling charges. Carey, who plays football for the University of Hawaii, was taken into custody, along with 10 others, during a police raid in Honolulu last weekend.

Cal State Long Beach's best basketball season in 16 years came to an end here Tuesday night. The 49ers lost to the University of Hawaii, 84-79, in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament before a sellout crowd of 7,617 in Blaisdell Arena. Long Beach finished the season 23-9. Hawaii (25-9), which will advance to play at New Mexico Thursday night, got three-point plays from Chris Gaines and Vincent Smalls in the last 2:12. Those gave the Rainbows a 77-72 lead.

Rainbows are such a familiar sight over the University of Hawaii's verdant campus that the school's sports teams are named after them. Those rainbows are supposed to bring pots of gold, but in recent years the state university has found nothing but pots of woe. Six straight years of budget cuts have resulted in faculty departures, higher tuition, declining enrollment, a critical accreditation report and a plummeting national ranking. Although Gov.

It was a no-brainer for Fullerton's Lauren Duggins. The 5-foot-11 senior committed to play women's volleyball for Hawaii, sight unseen. Well, sort of. "I've never actually been on campus," said Duggins, who will take her official visit to the campus near Honolulu later this month. Duggins, however, still knows all about the islands. Her mother, Deb, grew up in nearby Kaneohe. And to get a chance to spend four years in that tropical paradise, get an education and play volleyball?

Paradise can be hell. Or at least it sometimes must seem that way to Hawaii's football players, losers of 18 consecutive games. That's why it has been so hard for people to understand why June Jones, an NFL head coach with the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers, would take the Hawaii coaching job and the headaches that accompany it. Jones has a ready answer for that. "If it wasn't Hawaii, I wouldn't have come back," he said. "Hawaii was a job I wanted to do for a long time.

Going from the NFL to a college team hardly follows the logical coaching progression. Then again, June Jones isn't like other coaches. Jones was promoted two months ago by the San Diego Chargers as interim head coach job to turn around the poor-performing team. On Thursday, he was named head coach of the Hawaii Rainbows, one of the worst teams in Division I-A. "Unless you've lived in Hawaii, unless you know the people there, it's different than anything else.

USC defensive coordinator Bill Young said Sunday he will interview for the Hawaii coaching job, a position he also was a candidate for several years ago. Young said he expects to meet with Hawaii officials in Southern California, probably this week, instead of traveling to Honolulu. The school is also expected to interview June Jones, the San Diego Chargers' interim coach, on the same trip. Utah Coach Ron McBride already has interviewed at Hawaii, and Young is among about six candidates.

The play was simple yet memorable for Chris Shinnick. After the Minnesota quarterback fumbled a snap early in the fourth quarter against Hawaii last Saturday at Aloha Stadium, Shinnick scooped up the ball for a two-yard touchdown that helped the Rainbow Warriors pull off a 17-3 upset. Shinnick, a senior strong safety who had not scored a touchdown since he was a running back at El Camino Real High four years ago, basked in the glory of making such an impact in only his second start at Hawaii.

A few miles from the glittering beach of its hotel, the Cal State Long Beach basketball team practiced in a stuffy gym on Monday. The 49ers looked fresh and suddenly enthusiastic about playing in the National Invitation Tournament. Since the decision by the NCAA tournament selection committee to bypass Long Beach, the 49ers have received national publicity and also acquired a "we'll-show-them" attitude.

RACISM FLAP: A college student who dropped out after a professor suggested Hawaii would be better off without him has returned to the University of Hawaii and filed a grievance. "Once I got over to the mainland, I realized that it's just not right that a professor should do that," said Joey Carter, a senior who will resume his studies this semester. The Louisiana native had written a column in the school newspaper in September lamenting "Caucasian-bashing" in Hawaii.

Tim Carey will play football at Hawaii this fall without a scholarship, a penalty handed down by university officials, his father, Tim Carey Sr., said Friday. Carey, a quarterback from Los Alamitos High, was among a group arrested in a gambling raid in Honolulu in May. Carey pleaded no contest to the charges and paid a $200 fine. School officials decided to revoke Carey's scholarship, meaning he will have to pay the approximate $8,000 to attend school this year.
