Chris Yemma Before immigrating to British Columbia, Canada when he was 11 years old, Brian Kim would frequently be awakened in the middle of the night by his older brother Chris to watch Michael Jordan electrify his opponents. In Seoul, Korea, from the mid-1980s to the '90s, Kim's brother was part of an underground following of the NBA, a following that would play street games during the day and watch the real thing on television at around 3 a.m. But Chris decided the street basketball culture in their "ghetto area," as Kim described it, was too dangerous for his younger brother.

Tony Altobelli COSTA MESA - It's the first blemish for the Newport Harbor High field hockey team, but perhaps Wednesday's nonleague setback to visiting Rossland Secondary of British Columbia was just what the doctor ordered. "Hopefully our girls learned from some of the things Rossland did out there," Coach Sharon Wolfe said after the Sailors lost on penalty strokes, 2-1, following a scoreless game in regulation. "They did a great job of going to the ball, but they still kept the field spread out and didn't cluster near the ball."

Coach Dave Perkins Mesa squad is hungry for a highlight of its own after a surprising 22-16 setback Saturday at Westminster.

DECATUR, Ala. — Vanguard University junior Jennifer Olvera belted a three-run home run to put the Lions on top, 4-3, over Simon Fraser University in the sixth inning of a crucial pool-play finale for both teams Saturday at the NAIA Championship softball tournament at the Wilson Morgan Softball Complex. But Simon Fraser, of British Columbia, Canada, rallied for two runs in the bottom of the seventh to post a 5-4 win that ended Vanguard's season. Had Vanguard won, it would have posted the second-best record among five teams in Pool B, and advanced to the eight-team, double-elimination tournament that begins Monday.
