Season preview Ready or not, the athletes of the National Hockey League will buckle their chin straps and lace on their skates Friday night to finally begin the long-awaited season. With only a 48-game scramble for playoff positions, all games will be held within either the Eastern or Western Conferences. The daily divisional standings will be virtually meaningless.
OREGON AT WASHINGTON STATE Following a lost weekend in Los Angeles, the Cougars (2-2 in the Pacific-10 Conference and 6-5 overall) return to Friel Court to take on the surprising Ducks (3-0 and 11-1). Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. At a glance Oregon brings a decided experience edge to the table. The 17th-ranked Ducks, who lead the Pac-10, start four seniors - including guard Orlando Williams, a longrange bomber, who ranks 5th in the league in scoring with an average of 18.3 points per game. "Oregon is a very difficult team to play," WSU coach Kevin Eastman said. "They're experienced, they shoot the ball well, they shoot a lot of threes and they make a lot of threes." In addition, the Ducks go nine deep. Eastman hopes to counter with quickness on the perimeter. Sophomore point guard Donminic Ellison and backup forward Tavares Mack are back after serving a one-game suspension for breaking curfew. That should help Eastman keep his players more rested than they were in last Saturday's 91-78 loss at UCLA. Mark Hendrickson, who leads the Pac-10 in field-goal percentage (64.2) and ranks second in rebounding (10.1), is playing the best basketball of his career and will need another big showing on the front line against an Oregon team that ranks No. 2 in the league in rebounding. School is back in session at WSU, which should help pump up attendance figures and the crowd noise. The Cougars have won eight straight at home, including five this season.

The Spokane Symphony will observe two anniversaries with its performance at The Met Sunday: the 25th season of its concertmaster (a year late) and the tercentenary of the death of the English composer Henry Purcell. The concert, "A Midwinter Night's Dream," is a tribute to British music, with selections from "The Fairy Queen" by Purcell along with Gustav Holst's "St. Paul" Suite, William Walton's "Facade" Suite and Benjamin Britten's "Simple Symphony."
After the busiest concert year in rock 'n' roll history - during which a record for gate receipts was set by Pink Floyd and then broken by the Rolling Stones - it's hard to imagine what 1995 can offer for an encore. "We had everybody in 1994," says Cellar Door Productions' Rick Franks. "I hope my colleagues do income averaging, 'cause I don't know who's left." But Franks and other promoters will tell you that there will be plenty of live rock 'n' roll during 1995 as well. And if the new year isn't quite as jam-packed - probably a good thing for all concerned - it will be marked by a steady stream of major names that will keep concert sites filled throughout the year.

Last year, the Spokane Jazz Society hit on a great way to start the New Year and hold a membership drive - all in one package. It worked so well, they're doing it again Sunday. First Jazz is a five-hour jazz bash held in the ballroom at Cavanaugh's Inn at the Park. It's a quality affair, with hot and cold buffets, a no-host bar and lots of elegant dancing and first-rate jazz.
