But this time he's not wearing that familiar Lion uniform. Instead, he's playing for the Houston Rockets in the Summer Pro League.

In many ways, Jeff Fryer is the stereotypical beach boy: blond, tanned, cheerfully laid back. Until the Loyola Marymount guard takes the basketball floor. Then his jaw takes on a businesslike set and his blue eyes get an icy glaze, like a gunfighter of old squinting into the sun. These are the eyes of a shooter. "He's a hired gunner," Loyola Coach Paul Westhead said. "He knows that. He fits the crucial two-man (off-guard) position in our system--shooting any time you get your hands on it.

From one end of the bench, where Judas T. Prada whispers assistant-coach advice into the head man's ear, to the opposite end, where Father George Crain sits tugging on his black fedora, Loyola Marymount has a whole row of true believers who now honestly feel that this cuddly little cabbage-patch basketball team can win the national championship.
