reportedly for an annual salary of
$400,000, in the summer of 1995, short-
ly after the Bruins won their NCAA title.
He was cleared on Oct. 21 by the
school and Pacific-10 Conference of
violations in the sale of a car he owned
to the sister of point guard Baron Davis
two days after Davis orally committed to
playing for the Bruins next season.
Young said UCLA's investigation has
been reported to the Pac-10 and the
NCAA, and the sale of the car was
"completely unrelated" to the dismissal.
"UCLA has always tried to compete
within the rules and when violations are
discovered, we act quickly to investigate
the situation and take decisive step to
solve the problem," Young said. "To our
thousands of fans and supporters, I offer
our promise that UCLA will continue to
be vigilant in enforcing high standards
of conducted in all university activities."
Lavin became the No. 1 assistant on
Harrick's staff when Lorenzo Romar left
to coach Pepperdine last spring.
Lavin is about to start his sixth season
as a member of the UCLA staff, but just
his second as a full-time assistant.
In addition to committing an NCAA
violation during a recruiting dinner,
UCLA said Harrick violated NCAA

rules regarding ethical conduct, for
"refusal to furnish information relevant
to an investigation of a possible violation
of an NCAA regulation when requested
to do so by the NCAA or the individyl
The school said, Harrick was charged
with "knowingly furnishing ... false or
misleading information concerning the
individual's involvement in or knowl-
edge of matters relevant to a possible
violation of an NCAA regulation."'
In addition, Harrick violated policy by
filing a false expense report in connec-
tion with the dinner, the school said.
According to the university, a recruit-
ing dinner on Oct. II was attended, by
five current players even though only
three recruits were present.
It's against NCAA rules for a school
to provide a free meal or entertainment
to a student that assists in the recruit-
ment of a prospect during an official
visit unless the student is designated as
the one student host for that prospect.
When questioned about the dinner by
UCLA officials conducting the investi-
gation, the school said, Harrick misrep-
resented significant facts on more than
one occasion.
Later, when confronted by university
officials who had compiled the facts of
the dinner, Harrick admitted he had mis-
led the school.

I _______________

Former UCLA basketball coach Jim Harrick was fired yesterday after allegations
surfaced that he filed a false expense report and committed recruiting violations.
Less than two years ago, Harrick led the Bruins to their first NCAA title since
1975. This year, UCLA was picked to be one of the nation's elite teams with all
five of its starters returning and challenge for the title again.

NEWTON, Mass. (AP) - Boston
College suspended 13 football players
yesterday for gambling, including two
ho bet against their school last month
a game with Syracuse.
.Thomas Reilly, the Middlesex County
distiet attorney, said the two players did
not influence the outcome of the game,
which the Orangemen won 45-17.
While a violation of NCAA rules, it is
net the point-shaving scandal the school
had known once and feared again.
"We have found absolutely no evi-
dence, no indication, of any game, the
utome of any game, the score of any
e, being compromised ... by players
at Boston College," Reilly said.
The suspended players include tight
end Scott Dragos, starter, and linebacker
Brian Maye, who had been a starter
before he dislocated his elbow.
The others suspended were identified
as running back Jamall Anderson, offen-
sive lineman Marcus Bembry, defensive
back Paul Cary, defensive linemen John
oleman and Dan Collins, wide
eceivers Chris Cosenza, Steve Everson
and Brandon King, center Kyle
Geiselman, linebacker Jermaine Monk,
and light end Rob Tardio.
The list does not differentiate between
those who bet from $25 to $1,000 on the
World Series, college football or pro
football and the two who placed $200
and $250 on Syracuse, giving 13 points
against their own team on Oct. 26.
Coach Dan Henning said the two

fbe Michigan crew team turned in
if6ther solid performance Sunday at the
Head of the Elk regatta in Elkhart, Ind.
In the most prestigious open-eight
race; the Wolverines took the second,
third and seventh places out of a field of
15. Purdue's top boat finished in first
place, completing the 2 1/2-mile course

nwo of Michigan's boats, with times of
15:25 and 15:35.
The Wolverines entered three relative-
ly even boats rather than focusing all of
their talent on one best boat. While this
makes it more likely that all three boats
will do well, placing a boat in the top
three becomes more difficult.
- In the novice-eight race, Michigan

1st-place Purdue (17:23) and second-
piee Indiana (17:36).
Though the combination ofa second-
and a third-place finish in the open eight
is certainly an excellent showing, the
Wolverines had hoped for a repeat of

against No. 17 Notre Dame, but could
apply to the NCAA for reinstatement.
"I will not, and the team will not,
accept back to the program anybody that
has bet against Boston College,"
Henning said. "We want every player on
our team this weekend to be those that
are interested in winning the game."
Boston College was at the center of a
point-shaving scandal in 1982 when Rick
Kuhn was sentenced to 10 years in
prison for his role in fixing six basketball
games during the 1978-79 season.
Initial reports indicated there might
have been a similar problem this time,
but Henning took solace in the fact that
most of the players involved had not
betrayed their teammates.
"I'm thankful that this university has
passed muster," he said. "We can play
without any taint this weekend."
Athletic director Chet Gladchuk did
not comment on whether the school
would rescind the scholarships or take
further action against the athletes. But he
said that question arises "any time a stu-
dent athlete renders himself ineligible."
"When it comes to the moral and eth-
ical conduct of our players and when it
pertains to the integrity of our university,
there will be no compromises at Boston
College," Gladchuk said.
Although the players who bet against
Boston College were not identified,
Reilly said one did not play in the game
and the other played on special teams.
NCAA rules forbid athletes from bet-
ting on any intercollegiate or profession-
al sporting event.

King, grandson of boxing promoter
Don King, and Anderson have not
played this season because of injury.
Henning said rumors of gambling or
point-shaving first surfaced after the
Syracuse game, in which the Orangemen
trailed 14-7 before rallying for 17 points
in the final 1:43 of the first half.
Syracuse got the ball for those three
scores on two Boston College punts and
an interception.

Speculation intensified after last
Thursday's 20-13 loss to Pittsburgh, a
game in which the Eagles were favored
by 1 1/2 points. Speight, Monk,
Anderson and King were confronted by
Henning and the team's student captains
on Saturday.
Later that day, Gladchuk announced
that the school would investigate the
rumors with the goal of clearing the pro-
gram's name.
