Some time before the new year, William Alexander will become the all-time basketball scoring leader at Cal State Dominguez Hills, and chances are good he will become the career leader in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. later this season. Alexander is off to a terrific start, averaging 20 points a game and shooting nearly 60% to pace the Toros to a 7-2 start. After a 10-day Christmas break, they play host to Cal State Hayward on Saturday, when the school record figures to fall.

Ricardo Legorreta, the architect who introduced Mexican modernism to a global audience and who brought his crisp, brightly colored aesthetic to downtown Los Angeles with a controversial 1993 redesign of Pershing Square, has died. He was 80. Legorreta died Dec. 30 in Mexico City of liver cancer, according to Adriana Ciklik, a principal in the Mexico City-based firm Legorreta and Legorreta, which the architect had run in recent years with his son Victor. Although Legorreta's work featured the clean lines and spare forms of modern design, it also incorporated elements of Mexican vernacular architecture including thick protective walls, spacious courtyards and bold color.

The reader gets a sense of the author's life with the idea of Los Angeles (dense with images and citations from the literature) as well as a map through the vast, imaginative work that is this city.
