Red Storm coach Darnell Dantzler's instructions to the offense were both simple and familiar: Get the ball to senior guards Rodney Pratcher and Kavon Pyatt. The two responded as they had many times before, Pratcher scoring 15 of his game-high 26 points in the second half and Pyatt adding 16 of his 18 points after intermission to lead the No. 5 Red Storm to a 72-58 win over the No. 10 Lakers.

About 50 pupils were barred from entering Northeast Middle School yesterday morning because they were not wearing the school uniform, causing some youngsters to go home and prompting parental complaints.

School system spokeswoman Vanessa Pyatt said pupils not wearing uniforms were only temporarily prevented from entering, but some pupils left before staff announced they could come in. Those who stayed had to sign forms that said they understood the policy, which requires khaki pants and a designated colored shirt.

City College art teacher Bill Holly's typically neat studio space was trashed yesterday: Large puddles and zig-zag splashes of paint covered the floor and walls, and an obscenity was scrawled across a table. "They threw one of my statues out the window," said Holly, a graduate of City College and staff member for seven years. Besides the paint and shattered artwork, Holly lost most if not all of his computers, as well as a human skeleton he used to teach students how to capture the human form.
