Reading Time: Two Minutes.Certainly one of the best highlight package inclusions of the NBA season occurred when, on a defensive switch, Charlotte's Muggsy Bogues ended up with the responsibility of guarding Washington's Gheorghe Muresan, who went right to the hoop and pushed it down through. For the uninitiated, Muresan (7 feet 7) holds a 28-inch height advantage over Bogues (5-3) and, when they extend their arms upward, it increases to about four feet.On the other hand, picture Big Gheorghe hawking Muggsy in the open court.

Jerry Tarkanian, 61 years old and ready for another challenge, left 32 years of college basketball behind for the NBA yesterday, when he became coach of the San Antonio Spurs.Tarkanian, best known for a 19-year stint at Nevada-Las Vegas that resulted in the best winning percentage in college basketball and numerous brushes with the NCAA, will take over at the end of the season. That means Bob Bass, the Spurs' vice president of basketball operations, will continue as interim coach through the playoffs, though Tarkanian is expected to help out."

LAS VEGAS -- In an apparent compromise worked out between Jerry Tarkanian and University of Nevada-Las Vegas officials, Tarkanian will spend one more season as UNLV's basketball coach before leaving the job he has held through nearly two decades of triumph and turmoil.Tarkanian's plans were announced yesterday after two days of talks between Tarkanian and university president Robert Maxson.Tarkanian's program has been the subject of negative publicity on an almost weekly basis during the last few months -- the most damaging item being the publication of photographs in the Las Vegas Review-Journal May 26 showing former UNLV players Moses Scurry, David Butler and Anderson Hunt socializing with convicted sports fixer Richard Perry.

LAS VEGAS -- What's the deal?University of Nevada-Las Vegas Coach Jerry Tarkanian is seated behind his expansive desk, not far from his built-in, pull-open blackboard and to the side of the huge window with a pleated gray curtain that's pulled back to reveal yet another sunny day in Las Vegas.The sunshine is lost on Tark. He shuffles through some phone messages, arrayed in front of him like playing cards for solitaire or blackjack."ANNETTE" he rasps in the world's worst voice to Annette Fazio, his executive secretary.

Those who have seen "Blue Chips" usually come away thinking that Pete Bell, the coach portrayed by Nick Nolte, is really Bob Knight. In temperament and tactics, perhaps, but in terms of art imitating life, this movie smacks of Bergman. Russ Bergman.In fact, after the Coastal Carolina coach went to see the movie with his team in Blacksburg, Va., the night before its Feb. 12 game at Radford, he called Steve Vest, sports editor of the Myrtle Beach, S.C. Sun-News, the next morning to admit to paying for plane fare home for two players.

When this NBA season was less than two weeks old, Jerry Tarkanian, the basset-eyed, bald-headed new coach of the San Antonio Spurs, already had lost half as many games as he did during his last three seasons at Nevada-Las Vegas, where his Runnin' Rebels were 95-8 and won the NCAA title in 1990.The waters of the pro game were unchartered for "The Shark." Before the season began, he panicked slightly when two of his key players -- forward Terry Cummings and all-purpose guard Willie Anderson -- were sidelined with major injuries.
