Jeff Herdman knew his first foray into the world of Belgian professional basketball would be an adventure. He didn't figure it would be a thriller that opened with a chase scene. There had been few surprises in the first 15 hours of the trek. A delayed flight. A couple pieces of lost luggage. A two-hour wait in the airport for his "welcoming party." Then three men showed up: the owner of the team in Liege, Belgium, the coach and an interpreter.

Just when you thought UC Irvine might be hitting bottom again, Jeff Herdman hit bottom first. The bottom of the net. Blown out by 30 points Wednesday against Stanford, Irvine regrouped, revamped its press and dealt California a 98-88 defeat Saturday in front of a season-high crowd of 3,126 in the Bren Center. Herdman took nine shots, and made eight of them, including seven from three-point range and finished with 23 points. "I just felt good," Herdman said.

Mission Viejo High School has a couple of pretty good players in Jeff Herdman and Todd Matthews. They shoot, rebound, take the charge, a couple of cracker jack kids those two. Oh, sometimes it takes them a while to get it all in working order. Take the Diablos' 75-71 victory over El Toro Tuesday in the final of the Coast Christmas Tournament at Estancia High School. Take it to five overtimes, which is the time Mission Viejo--mainly Herdman and Matthews--needed to finally defeat El Toro.

But they are still working out, in hopes that their careers aren't over. Bill Mulligan, the Anteaters' coach until his retirement at the end of the season, said all year that Herdman and Butler would be playing somewhere next year. The question is where.

What could stop Jeff Herdman from shooting now? His job description at UC Irvine is a simple one, a shooter's bliss. Shoot until you miss, then miss until you hit. Nothing so ordinary as a few missed shots--or a half-dozen of them--will discourage him this time. The two-year-old stress fractures in the balls of his feet have not been enough. Neither was the flu-like illness that dogged him last week.
