SOUTH PASADENA - The South Pasadena High boys' volleyball team had to play Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal playoff match against Heritage Christian not at home as scheduled, but a few blocks away at South Pasadena Middle School. A bingo game has been slated for the Tigers' home gym. Yep, South Pasadena got bumped for bingo. No matter. The way the Tigers played for much of Saturday, they would have been successful regardless of the venue, as South Pasadena defeated Heritage Christian in four games, 25-15, 20-25, 25-15, 25-19.

SOUTH PASADENA - Looking to be more aggressive with its offensive attack, the South Pasadena High girls' soccer team got the result it sought against Burbank on Tuesday afternoon. Most of it was attributed to some favorable bounces that led to two quick goals. "We talked before the game about being more aggressive, and it paid off in the first half," said South Pasadena Coach Randy Lilavois, whose team picked up a 3-1 nonleague home victory. "We lost to Alhambra (2-1) on Friday, mostly because we weren't that aggressive.

When the University of the Pacific men's basketball team lost the Big West Tournament Championship, some wondered if the Tigers have what it takes to be successful in the NCAA Tournament. But the team didn't win 22 straight games and capture the regular-season conference title without its share of talent. No. 8-seeded Pacific proved it belonged in the tournament Thursday by defeating No. 9 Pittsburgh, 79-71, in a first-round game at Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho.

BURBANK ? It was a long way to go for the Burbank High boys' tennis team in its CIF Southern Section Division II first-round playoff match. The Bulldogs left early Thursday to make the long trip to San Luis Obispo to take on the Tigers. It also turned out to be a long ride home after Burbank fell, 15-3, ending its season. The Bulldogs (11-7) ? who didn't qualify for the postseason for the first time in two decades last season ? were the No. 3 team from the Foothill League.

BURBANK -- This might be the year of the upset in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. For Burroughs High graduate Tyler Newton and his University of the Pacific team, they were able to get into the upset mix Friday, as the No. 12-seeded Tigers defeated No. 5 Providence in a St. Louis Regional game at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo. However, any ideas of an even-bigger upset in the second round Sunday were dashed...

BURROUGHS HIGH ? Revenge was at stake Tuesday when the Burroughs High boys? tennis team took on San Luis Obispo in a CIF Southern Section Division II playoff match. Last season, the Indians had to travel more than four hours to take on the Tigers in a first-round contest. Unfortunately, the locals lost by six sets. This time around, although the venue was different, the end result was almost identical, as San Luis Obispo defeated the Indians, 13-5, at Burroughs High. The loss was only the second of the season for the Indians (17-2)

Jeff Tully Tyler Newton emerged from the locker room and scanned the bowels of the Anaheim Convention Center Arena, looking for friends and family. Just moments earlier, the Burroughs High graduate and University of the Pacific men's basketball player had experienced the worst loss of his career, as the Tigers were defeated by Utah State, 65-52, on Saturday in the Big West Tournament Championship. Exhausted, haggard and worried about the possibility of his team not earning a berth in the NCAA Tournament, the last thing Newton wanted was to deal with a reporter sticking a tape recorder in his face and asking him what went wrong.

BURBANK - The South Pasadena boys' soccer team was already fully entrenched in its season when it took on Burbank on Tuesday, having played two matches and posting two shutouts. The Bulldogs, on the other hand, came into the contest with no game experience. Burbank was scheduled to play Monrovia to open its campaign last week, but the match had to be postponed. Despite the lack of experience, the Bulldogs only trailed by one goal after the first half. However, defensive lapses proved to be Burbank's downfall in the second half, as the Tigers were able to capitalize on the mistakes and roll to a 6-0 nonleague victory at Burbank.

BURROUGHS HIGH - The Burroughs High and South Pasadena boys' water polo teams entered their nonleague match Thursday both missing key players. The Indians were without top scorer, Danny Mairano, who was ruled ineligible earlier in the week after failing a class during the summer session. Tigers Coach Robert Echeverria elected to bench his starters in the beginning of the contest, saying "the effort just hasn't been there" with the group of players. That left the door open for Burroughs, which got off to an early lead.

Just the thought that there is such a thing as a Thai western brings a smile to my face. The idea itself seems absurd and when you see "Tears of the Black Tiger," you might agree, though with some reservations. Despite the obvious daffy nature of the movie's conceit, writer/director Wisit Sasanatieng has delivered an eye-popping, candy-colored piece of stylized cinema the likes of which you most certainly have not seen before. "Tears of the Black Tiger" is set in Thailand during what appears to be the 1950s, so to call it a western is not quite right.
