C2 The Sun THURSDAY, June 18, 1987 KALEIDOSCOPE didn't set too well. When I called him to go in, he refused ... he went and sat on the end of the bench for the rest of the half." Gobin said he later overheard Knight bad-mouthing the coach to fans. "That did it. I got permission to either suspend him for a week or kick him off the team. I gave him a choice. He took the week." Knight already was very trying Add, Gobin: He said he spoke up because of anger over the way he was portrayed in the best-selling book on Knight, "A Season on the Brink." The book's version: "A compromise was struck: Knight would sit out a (one-)game suspension, and Gobin would try harder to win games." Some things never change Kurt Beathard, backup quarterback for the Washington Commandos of the new Arena (eight-man indoor) Football League, on whether he feels pressure from being the Redskins' general manager's offspring: "Not at all. After all, I've always been in the position of being Bobby Beathard's son." Keep your eye on the ball Spectator Patrice Bibas, 16, of France, on viewing his first-ever baseball game at an all-European tournament: "It's new. It's an original sport. ... I like the uniforms. On the other hand, there's a lot of dead time." Oh, you want American football Add, French baseball: Spectator Yad Mouaici, 28. was a little disappointed: "I thought there'd be more folklore some music, pom-pom girls, a more animated announcer." With Knight, prep was father to man Believe it or not Indiana coach Bobby Knight, renowned in college basketball for his violent tem- -per, actually was the same way in high school. That's what his prep coach, Bob Gobin, told the Burlington (Vt.) Free Press, anyway. "Not only was he the team's superstar, he was a .self-proclaimed superstar," said Gobin, who coached Knight at Orrville (Ohio) HS in 1957-58. n'Knight was volatile and egocentric and not a team j.player." "Bobby (then a senior) did not take kindly to the new coach me and the changes he wanted," Bobby Beathard Bobby Knight Gobin said. "He subsequently did not hustle on the floor and was causing dissension on the team. "Finally, I didn't start him one game, which site- ' 1 v' SPORTS IN BRIEF Lakers get $39,000 each in NBA playoff earnings T'-LOS ANGELES The twelve N$A champion Lakers and trainer 'XJary Vitti each will receive a share of $38,846 in 1987 playoff earnings, team captain Kareem Abdul-Jabbar announced Wednesday. i'if Frank Brickowski, traded to San Antonio at midseason, will receive a half-share, and several front-office persons will split the balance, Abdul-Jabbar said.

And that's one thing he may need to put his team back on the winning side. Forty-eight of the Inland Empire's top high school seniors will Classic schedule All garnet at Flscallnl Field Friday's game: 7 p.m. Saturday's gams: 7 p.m. Sunday's gama: 1 p.m. -lt necessary converge on Fiscalini Field 7 p.m. Friday night to begin a best-of-three series in The Sun's 13th Annual Twin Counties All-Star Classic. Two 24-player teams, representing Riverside and San Bernardino counties, will battle it out in what has become the area's premier showcase of local talent. Game 2, scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m., was originally set for the Riverside Sports Complex, but a scheduling conflict forced it back at Fiscalini Field. A third game (if necessary) is also scheduled for Fiscalini Field Sunday at 1 p.m. The San Bernardino Spirit is hosting the Classic. The Riverside All-Stars will be trying to snap the San Bernardino All-Stars' two-year winning streak and Lee said this could be the year. iwv;n.i;j.T4:ii:iti 3-WAY SPEAKERS SQ95 Installation Available 111 CAR ANTENNA ma'iC SrB $1188 I I EACH PIONEER SPEAKER SALE SAVE UP TO M EACH M SPEAKERS 6920. 6930. 6940. 6950. 6960. 6970. 10 IN.

"My pitcher (Eric Valdez from the Citrus Belt League's Moreno Valley) can tell them what to expect as far as hitters. I think that may give us an advantage." The San Bernardino All-Stars will boast a strong hitting attack. Heading the list is Colton shortstop Eric Campa, who batted .465 with 25 RBI and was named co-Most Valuable Player with Col-brunn. Cajon third baseman Don Schindler (.385, three HR, 17 RBI) and Cajon outfielder Ken Krahen-buhl (.464, one HR, 27 RBI) will also supply power. Citrus Belt League pitchers dominate San Bernardino's staff with the Colton duo of John Mos-queda and David Webb leading the way. Also on the staff are Red-lands' Glen Trunnelle, Eisenhower's Tony Richards, Fontana's Danny Murphy, and San Gorgo-nio's Jeff Burr. "It's going to be a good game," said Fontana coach Steve Hernandez who has served as head coach the past two years and will assist Colton's Bob Ramirez this year. "Every year I say this is the best team, but you're talking about 24 of the best and (the talent) just keeps getting better and better." Lee said pitching will be the key to winning the series, especially with the three-inning limit for each pitcher in effect. He said he'll have to be able to juggle a staff to adjust to the nine-inning games which will be played.
