Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE -- The fans are not cheering his name anymore, and the opposition is not basing its defensive game plan around him, but Kenny Pritchett is OK with that. The former Crescenta Valley High running back is living a dream everyday by putting on the UCLA helmet and jersey, and for now, he is content by waiting his turn.

"I have to keep trying and work hard, and I'm sure my time will come.

In a puzzling move, none of the 14 WNBA franchises selected Greco in the three-round draft, during which 42 players were chosen, 19 of them guards. The UCLA star -- who had already said she planned on playing in Italy next season, where she can gain dual citizenship -- was considered among the top players in the Pacific-10 Conference, if not the nation.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Michelle Greco called it a storybook ending. And in a way, it was. Although the former Crescenta Valley High phenom and UCLA women's basketball player still has a couple more college games ahead of her -- not to mention a promising professional career -- Saturday was the final time that she would be playing at Pauley Pavilion, her home for the past five years. So when she had the ball in her hands with just seconds remaining in a tie ballgame, the 5,029 in attendance -- who earlier gave her a standing ovation during Senior Day recognition -- could sense what was coming.

It took Greco all of 19 minutes to score 22 points and grab four rebounds in an 88-49 victory against winless Cal State Northridge on Saturday at Pauley Pavilion. It was the fifth game of the season that Greco has led the Bruins in the scoring department.

The price tag for renovations at the Rose Bowl continues to balloon, with officials adding $6 million last week to a construction contract for the already well-over-budget project. The money is needed to cover repairs for botched upgrades installed ahead of the 1994 World Cup games and increased labor costs incurred in the rush to finish seating upgrades before UCLA's football home opener on Sept. 8, officials said.
