Michael Abraham fidgets on a steel bunk, unable to sleep because of the chain-saw snoring and suffocating flatulence of three fellow inmates sharing a tiny cubicle with him in federal prison. His wife and two small children are biding time at his parents' home 80 miles away in Portland. His once-promising career as a women's college basketball coach is in ruins. But Abraham, 41, knows it could be much worse.

Tanner Nua had 17 kills and Theo Edwards added 16 as the Cal State Northridge men's volleyball team validated its No. 1 national ranking with a 30-26, 30-28, 9-30, 26-30, 15-10 victory over No. 2 USC in front of a capacity crowd Wednesday night at the Matadome.

Sometimes Josh Puckett punches through a canvas or throws it across the room in frustration. But most of the time, he keeps painting. The shapes he creates depict his uncontrollable ticks, his obsessive compulsive disorder and his feelings of rage and depression--symptoms caused by Tourette syndrome. "I can't really explain to people how hard it is, but I can show it," said Puckett, 17, a senior at Taft High School in Woodland Hills.

The time has come to talk about the Cal State Northridge players who will play in the NCAA tournament, not the ones who won't. Tie both arms behind your back and try to do a somersault through a Hula-Hoop, and we'll call that an approximation of what the Matadors did to reach their first-round game today against Memphis without their leading scorer or starting point guard. Meet the Matadors who never folded.

Stacy Lim is something of a legend within the Los Angeles Police Department. The former Cal State Northridge softball catcher has a reputation for toughness that was earned the hard way. Six years ago Lim, now 33, took a magnum bullet in the chest at point-blank range yet still managed to bring down her assailant in a face-to-face shootout. She is a real life Dirty Harry, without the swagger or the "I know what you're thinking, punk" speech. Just an officer, she says, who "doesn't like to lose."

Cal State Northridge's basketball season has been like Shakespeare on a very small stage. There is a father, seemingly betrayed by his son. A young athlete, thwarted and frustrated, pleading innocence after an arrest. Another who could have lost his life in a car accident, but instead has lost only the last weeks of his college career.

Cal State Northridge, which had hoped to get leading scorer Deon Tresvant back before the end of the season, will head into the final stretch without the senior guard. Tresvant has been out since early January after his arrest in an alleged theft at an electronics store on New Year's Day. He pleaded not guilty to felony charges Thursday, and university officials said he would continue to be withheld from competition until the case is resolved.

The large wave of refugees from war-ravaged Central America that arrived two decades ago has transformed more than neighborhoods, the workforce and restaurant cuisine of Southern California. Now, as Vanessa Guerrero's new diploma shows, the influence of that migration is being embraced academically by one of the region's largest public universities.

The coach who knows Kevin Singleton as a player and an assistant says he has figured out what makes Cal State Northridge's new linebacker coach such a good teacher. It's nothing you would recommend to a friend. "Kevin's life experiences are just superior to most of ours," Arizona football Coach Dick Tomey said. "He's had the best and worst of it." At the height of Singleton's life, he was a star linebacker at Arizona with an NFL career in his future.

Gary Torgeson, the softball coach at Cal State Northridge, saw the indications before the 1992 season even began. And by the time the Matadors suited up for their first game in February, it was clear to him that his ace pitcher, Heather Lindstrom, was pregnant. He could see it in her appearance and more so in her performance. Lindstrom's pitches had slowed considerably, and movement on the ball was barely detectable.

It was four years ago, but Katie Holloway can't forget. The college coach, on a recruitment trip to Lake Stevens High in Washington state, proclaimed the highly ranked senior as the missing piece to her women's basketball program. She invited Holloway for an official visit -- a scholarship as part of the deal. Holloway remembers shifting in her chair at that moment, knowing she was about to reveal what she had staunchly kept concealed for so long. She wears a prosthetic lower right leg.
