College basketball coaches spend untold days and nights trying to woo recruits, only to see them sometimes turn elsewhere. Occasionally, though, players fall into coaches' laps. That's the experience of Loyola Marymount Coach John Olive, who didn't have to travel halfway around the world, or even across town, to find his starting center and most productive player. Ime Oduok (e-MAY o-DWOK), a 6-foot-9, 240-pound junior from Eket, Nigeria, came halfway around the world to him.

Loyola Marymount came out against San Diego like a team that could do no wrong. Then came the second half--and a Torero team that could do no wrong. San Diego rallied from a 14-point first-half deficit and ran away from the Lions for a 75-51 victory Saturday night in a first-round West Coast Conference tournament game. The Toreros (14-13) will play Portland (17-10), a 78-72 winner over San Francisco, in tonight's second semifinal game. The Lions (18-11) will go home wondering what hit them.

It figured to be merely a midweek tuneup for this weekend's conference matchups, but Loyola Marymount on Tuesday night instead found itself in a hard-fought battle against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, before pulling away down the stretch for a 76-64 nonconference victory. Apparently, the Mustangs were intent on keeping their road winning streak alive. Granted, that streak was only one before they came to play before 1,528 at Gersten Pavilion.
