The L.A. landscape is lousy with yoga studios, each filled with relatively young teachers and even younger students who reveal their lower back tattoos during downward-facing dog. In this world, Frank White is an anomaly. At 83, he's in his 16th year of teaching yoga -- not an eternity, but remarkable when you consider that he didn't even step into a yoga studio until he was 68.

At 77, Frank White is the picture of health. A rather offbeat one, too. With a completely shaved head, the fitful vegetarian stands an even 5-foot-8, 145 pounds. He can boast of an enviable cholesterol count, low blood pressure, and a near religious workout schedule--everyday, up to two hours at a time.

The plan was for Jerry Allen to take the last shot, but the El Camino College defense wouldn't let him get the ball. So, with time running out, Frank White, who was deep in the right corner, decided to take it. He looked at the clock. "I saw nine, then eight," White said. "I went baseline, brought it back out a little and shot it. Somebody had to shoot it." The high-arching shot over two defenders swished through the hoop to give Harbor College an 88-87 lead with five seconds left in the game.
