HANA, Hawaii - About 3:30 every afternoon, the Hertzes, Avises, and Budgets - a veritable red and white wave of compacts, convertibles, SUVs, and generic four-doors - surge out of town carrying thousands of day-trippers back to their glittering resorts in central and western Maui. They have experienced one of the highlights of any Hawaiian vacation - the drive along the Hana Highway, a 55-mile serpent of a road that runs past mountains half-hidden by mist, lava rocks pummeled by surf, slopes of giant green ferns, gardens of tropical plants in vibrant colors, and waterfalls tumbling out of rain forests.

The Hawaiian honeymoon will be wonderful - especially after the torture of your dithery mother's wedding plans and the reception with loudmouth Cousin Bruno. Although you'd like to, you can't just skip the ceremony. It wouldn't be proper. But you can let professionals plan your wedding in Hawaii and leave Bruno back home. More than 150 couples get hitched every year in the private tropical gardens of the Damien Waring Estate, not far from Waikiki. The oceanfront landscaping, with its amazing flowers, tropical birds and waterfalls, was designed as a background for photographer Waring's wedding portraits.

IT TOOK Mississippi most of the game to put things together, but when the Rebels did, they quickly took over. Murphy Holloway scored 18 points and Mississippi pulled away in the final minutes to defeat Hawaii, 81-66, Tuesday in the fifth-place game of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu. Nick Williams and Marshall Henderson scored 16 points each for the Rebels (10-2), who broke away from a game tied at 63 to finish on an 18-3 run. "I was proud of the fact that our guys at the end of the game made some adjustments, came up with some loose balls, defensively got a couple of stops, a couple key rebounds allowed us to get out in the open floor and stretch the game," Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy said.

Staying at Hawaii would have been the easy choice for June Jones. It was the challenge of rebuilding a tattered football program that led him to take the coaching job at Southern Methodist, which stumbled to a 1-11 record this season. "Where you are now excites me because the only way is up, and I am good at going up," Jones said yesterday in Dallas. The introduction of Jones at a booster-packed press conference ended the nation's longest college coaching search this year.

The television is always on in Herman Frazier's office here so that he can keep up with what's happening on the mainland, but he doesn't stay glued to it for long. There are constituents to meet, commercials to make, deals to be done for the University of Hawaii's athletic department. "You have to understand that the people here have true feelings," Frazier said. "They love this state. They love this university. And you just can't come with outside ideas and think you know it all. You've got to be able to work with the people and work it all out. " For the last three years, Frazier, 50, has done just that as Hawaii's athletic director, putting down roots thousands of miles from his native Philadelphia while trying to build up the only game in town in his new state.

After rejoining the Big East in March, Temple (3-3) was left with only 11 games on this season's schedule. Since then, the Owls have been attempting to schedule a 12th opponent, to make it easier to get the six wins needed to become bowl-eligible for the fourth consecutive season. One source said discussions with Hawaii have been on and off since August.
