It wasn't long after he stopped a line drive with his face as a high school junior that Craig Davis realized he probably had a more promising future as a linebacker than as a pitcher. After his jaw healed--it was broken in two places--Davis reluctantly pitched in a summer league. But "every time somebody hit a little dribbler through the middle, I'd jump out of the way," said Davis, who was 5-0 as a junior for a high school team that won the Arizona Class AAA state championship.

Craig Davis' jumper with 18 seconds left helped Pepperdine score a 63-61 victory over McNeese State Saturday. Michael Cutright gave McNeese State (0-4) a 61-60 lead by hitting a 12-foot jumper with 36 seconds left. But the Waves regained the lead, 62-61, on Davis' shot, and after McNeese State lost the inbounds pass, Levy Middlebrooks sank one of two free throws for the final margin. Cutright's last-second 30-foot jumper bounced off the rim.

The magic moment. The coming of age. The point when potential finally evolves into peak performance. Most successful athletes experience it and never forget it. For Pepperdine's Craig Davis, it happened last season in the unlikely town of Spokane, Wash., in the home gym of an unlikely school called Gonzaga, with stands full of fans who didn't like Davis and loudly made their feelings known.

Before Sunday's nonconference game against unbeaten Arizona, Pepperdine Coach Jim Harrick said he thought his players would do well, or get a lesson. The Waves played well--in spurts, especially in the second half--but still lost, 73-68, before 13,216 fans at McKale Center. They played Arizona (5-0), ranked ninth by the Associated Press, about even in the first half until Steve Kerr went to work outside, making three three-point shots without a miss.
