Jeff Parris was back on the basketball court Friday, much to the relief of Cal State Northridge, which feared losing its offensive catalyst to a sprained right foot Thursday in a 71-67 loss to Alabama-Birmingham in the opener of the Nike Festival at Hawaii. Parris, a 6-foot-5 senior forward, practiced with the team Friday and was in the starting lineup against Hawaii for the second of three tournament games in as many days at Stan Sheriff Center.

Jeff Parris was there when the Bobby Braswell era began at Cal State Northridge in 1996. And Parris was there at the end Tuesday night, punctuating the Matadors' 78-74 upset of UCLA at Pauley Pavilion with an authoritative dunk with 12.3 seconds to play. And so it was fitting for Parris, the elder statesmen among the Matadors, to stand out in what ranks as the biggest victory in Northridge history.

Cal State Northridge lost a nonconference basketball game Thursday night. Whether the Matadors lost a lot more remains to be seen. Either way, the sight of forward Jeff Parris limping to the bench in the second half was more far more disheartening than a 71-67 loss to balanced Alabama-Birmingham in the first of the Matadors' three games in the Nike Festival at Hawaii. Northridge (6-4), shooting only 37.

A properly groomed Jeff Parris returned to the basketball court Wednesday for Cal State Northridge, ending speculation that he might sit out the season rather than conform to Coach Bobby Braswell's team grooming standards. Parris, a senior forward and among the Matadors' best players, was a conspicuous no-show Tuesday at media day after failing to meet Braswell's deadline for players to spruce up their appearance.

When Jeff Parris was informed he had tied a career best with 27 points in Cal State Northridge's 84-70 victory over James Madison on Monday, he couldn't believe it. After all, the Matadors had flown across country and endured a six-hour layover in Cincinnati, arriving in their Harrisonburg hotel at 4 a.m. (EDT) on Sunday. Parris didn't expect much from the team, much less from himself. But Parris' effort, which matched his 27-point performance in an upset of UCLA on Nov.

As Jeff Parris goes, so goes the Cal State Northridge men's basketball team. When Parris sits, the team tends to sputter. Over-simplification, perhaps, especially in the system of Coach Bobby Braswell, who routinely shuffles starters and spreads minutes among players. Yet, it already is apparent that Northridge (6-3), which enters the Nike Festival today at Hawaii against Alabama-Birmingham, can ill afford to be without Parris, a 6-foot-5 senior forward with a penchant for physical play.

There was no way Jeff Parris was going to play Trojan Horse against USC. The Trojans saw him coming. USC also was relieved to see Parris spend so much time on the bench during a 99-90 victory over Cal State Northridge before 4,019 Tuesday night at the Sports Arena. "He didn't play a lot [Tuesday night] and I was glad to see that," USC Coach Henry Bibby said. "It was a loss for them. We wanted to get him into foul trouble because we knew what he could do."

Yes, that was Jeff Parris making all of his 10 free throws on Sunday night in Cal State Northridge's 90-73 victory over visiting Howard. Parris, a senior forward, played his usual tenacious inside game, bouncing off bodies while scoring 19 points. Last season, Parris' punishing style resulted in a team-high 157 free-throw attempts. Yet, he made only 89 (56.7%). This time, when Parris toed the line, he came through. "We shoot free throws every day in practice and I make them," Parris said.

Look to the Cal State Northridge bench late in a game and usually you will find Jeff Parris. Swaddled in sweaty towels and sandwiched between teammates, Parris was positioned in his customary place Thursday night at the Matadome as the final seconds ticked away in a 73-63 Big Sky Conference basketball victory over Montana State. Parris took a seat in the second half with four points and one rebound--numbers hardly indicative of his season averages of 12.3 points and 5.1 rebounds.
