The Utah Jazz dangled a $3.8 million mousetrap in front of the 76ers' Julius Erving last summer. Mayor Wilson Goode, embattled at the time in a city trash strike, didn't like the bait. "Where is Utah, anyway?" the mayor said. Not close enough was the eventual answer. Erving signed a new one-year contract with the Sixers, then said this would be his final season in the NBA. So where, aside from being in the Spectrum tonight, is Utah, anyway? "The heart of the West," Detroit coach Chuck Daly said diplomatically.

Arizona's just been there. Utah hasn't done that. At least not since LBJ called the White House home.

First, of course, the defending national champion Wildcats (30-4) must beat Utah (28-3) in this afternoon's West Regional final at the Arrowhead Pond. Who said you don't sweat the details?

The Wyoming jinx continued for No. 5 Utah. Gregg Sawyer hit two free throws and Justin French made a three-point play in the final 1:26 as Wyoming upset the visting Runnin' Utes, 62-56, last night. The Utes have not won at Wyoming since 1993 - when NBA rookie Keith Van Horn was a freshman. Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt said it was nothing magical, just patience. "We played one of the finest teams in the country tonight. They are extremely well coached," Shyatt said.

Thomas F. Fisher, half of the two-man, anti-development ticket that upset the Horsham Republican Party candidates last year, plans to resign from the Township Council tomorrow, 18 weeks after taking office. At the end of the council's monthly formal meeting Tuesday night, Fisher, 47, said he was stepping down because his company was transferring him to Utah. "I've appreciated the voters putting their faith in me. I'm sorry I couldn't fulfill" the four-year term, said Fisher, who was sworn in Jan. 4. In an interview, Fisher urged the council to appoint Francis X. Walsh Jr., a member of the township's Zoning Hearing Board, as his replacement until the next council elections in 1989.

" Nelson, 60, did not say when he might be able to rejoin the team. But earlier in the day, Mavericks interim coach Del Harris said there is a chance Nelson will rejoin the team during its current road trip.

Utah coach Rick Majerus was so busy coming up with a game plan to stop Lamar Odom, he didn't give Antonio Reynolds-Dean much thought. Reynolds-Dean made the Utes pay. He scored 22 points and Odom added 15 as Rhode Island upset No. 21 Utah, 70-63, last night in the Great Eight in Chicago. Preston Murphy, who briefly left the game limping, came back to hit two huge three-pointers as the Rams (4-3) pulled away late in the second half. Andre Miller tied a career high with 28 points and had a Great Eight-record six steals for the Utes (3-3)

SALT LAKE CITY - Let's start with the doubters, because Christian Wood has plenty of them. He's too thin, they say. He's not focused. He went undrafted despite having first-round talent partly because of poor conditioning. Wood hears it all. "What keeps me motivated are people telling me what I can't do," said Wood, who is playing for the 76ers' summer league team. "You know, I'm too weak to do this, and I'm too weak to do that. . . . Me being undrafted motivates me, too. " That's why the 6-foot-11 center out of UNLV is playing with a sense of urgency in the Utah Jazz Summer League.

Divergent results in Western states that voted Tuesday reflect how polarized the presidential race remains in both parties as the primary calendar starts to run out of pages. In a normal cycle, the question of Republican and Democratic nominees would be settled (or pretty much so) by now. On the GOP side, Donald Trump crushed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by 22 percentage points in Arizona's primary, 47 percent to 25 percent. It was a winner-take-all contest, so the front-runner picked up 58 more delegates.

Authorities do not know why Theresa Greaves disappeared in 1983. They do not know how the South Jersey woman died, who killed her, or how her remains ended up on a Utah hillside, where they were found last year. But a small step toward closure in the 33-year-old mystery came this week, when Greaves' remains were flown back to her family in New Jersey. Greaves had lived in Utah for about two months when she disappeared in August 1983. She was 23. Her skull and additional remains were discovered last February; they were identified as hers about a month later.

EUREKA, Nev. - "It's totally empty. There are no points of interest. We don't recommend it. We warn all motorists not to drive there unless they're confident of their survival skills. " The quote comes from a 1986 issue of Life magazine, describing a stretch of two-lane highway through central Nevada that it dubbed "the Loneliest Road in America. " In the article, a representative of AAA issued that dire caution. But for road-trip aficionados, those words were a gauntlet thrown, a dare to affirm the truth of the grim claim, or prove it wrong.

After facing the former No. 1 team in the nation and two others that were ranked at the time, Temple's basketball team returns after a week off for its first home game of the season when the Owls host Delaware in a nonconference game on Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Liacouras Center. The Owls (1-3) have been off since Sunday's 74-68 loss to then-No. 16 Utah in the third-place game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. Delaware (2-1) has been idle since Tuesday's home 73-72 win over Fairleigh Dickinson.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Sure, the game plan went out the door pretty quickly and it never looked like Temple would be able to recover. That scheme was aimed at stopping 7-foot Utah center Jakob Poeltl, who torched the Owls for 32 points and 11 rebounds. Yet in the end, it was 5-10 guard Brandon Taylor who sank Temple. Taylor's desperation baseline jumper with 28.4 seconds left broke a tie and Poeltl hit four free throws in the final 4.6 seconds to deliver No. 16 Utah a 74-68 victory in the third-place game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Sunday at Roberto Clemente Coliseum.

That victory, plus last Sunday's interception against the Jets, of course, have made this one of Eric Rowe's best birthday week's ever. He turned 23 today. "I got my Utah shirt right there," he said, laughing, earlier in the week, "will be repping it today, and probably for the rest of the year.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers' hope was to get out of the Utah Jazz Summer League unscathed, but a late development has prevented that. Second-round draft choice Richaun Holmes took a nasty fall on his elbow in the second half of Thursday's game against the host Jazz. Holmes didn't return to the game, and assistant coach Billy Lange said afterward he was getting X-rays as a precaution. Those X-rays revealed that the Bowling Green product had fractured his right elbow. He probably will be shelved for a couple of months.
