The school that gave us Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble has also given us Anthony Ireland. We just haven't noticed. For four years, Ireland has played on the same Gersten Pavilion basketball court at Loyola Marymount where Gathers and Kimble became a national force in Paul Westhead's shoot-without-conscience offense. On the night of March 4, 1990, Gathers collapsed and died of a heart condition on the court. In his honor, his friend, the right-handed Kimble, shot his first free throw of each ensuing game left-handed.

The NCAA and its member institutions often refer to "student-athletes," but the front side of the term isn't often highlighted in a sports section. We asked officials from the Southland's Division I universities to point us toward their best and brightest - the teams that made classroom performance a priority. Here is what we found at Loyola Marymount: The Seaver School of Science and Engineering at Loyola Marymount is not for the faint of academic heart. But it's where a fair share of Loyola Marymount athletes - 27 of 395 to be exact - focus their studies.

All Max Good ever promised his players was a pair of sneakers and a hard time. He has roused his teams before 5 a.m. for practice and challenged young men one-third his age to fight. The only thing he runs harder than his players is his mouth, which tends to spew words that would have made George Carlin uncomfortable. When the late Sister Peg Dolan, one of the matriarchs of Loyola Marymount, met the Lions basketball coach, she told him her seat was behind the team bench. Good suggested she move elsewhere because of his colorful language.

Well, I guess Loyola Marymount fans owe UCLA a thank you and a congratulations. Goliath finally accepted an invitation to play David after five years. The circumstances were finally stacked enough in UCLA's favor: The Hank and Bo Show had ended, four 1989-90 Loyola starters were gone and UCLA had rested a week while LMU had its third game in three days. After three years, LMU no longer dominates Southern California. Avoidance has paid off. Bragging rights are now yours. SHANE SIMMONS Burbank

It is a sad state of affairs when a basketball program's promise is snuffed out rather than allowed to develop and grow. This year's Loyola Marymount team went 7-20, including a dismal defeat to Pepperdine in the first round of the WCC tournament. This after two winning seasons under the tutelage of former LMU coach Jay Hillock. Hillock was bushwhacked by unhappy fans and alumni. However, the real nemesis in this tragedy is Athletic Director Brian Quinn, who demonstrates a lack of experience and foresight in overseeing LMU's athletic programs.

On a recent stroll in her Westchester neighborhood, Leslie Rittenour watched a dusty white Cherokee with Washington plates wedge its way into a small parking spot on the street in front of her home. Like the two cars it squeezed between - a gray Prius and a beat-up Honda - it had a Loyola Marymount University decal on its windshield. Rittenour pursed her lips as she walked past the cars. "They say it's a public street," Rittenour said, scoffingly. "If every day it's like this, it's really just an LMU parking lot. " For Rittenour and others whose homes border the edge of the university campus, competing with students for parking leads to frequent frustrations - ones they fear will get worse when the school starts charging for on-campus parking in January.

Adam Minter's excellent article on Father Thomas Lucas and his remarkable work to replace St. Ignatius Cathedral's stained-glass windows in Shanghai elaborated upon a story that his colleagues in Jesuit ministries have been following with great interest ("Jesus in China," July 16). Father Lucas and Chinese artist Wo Ye visited Loyola Marymount University last year to discuss the project. It's in very good hands. It would have been appropriate to acknowledge the artist who created the magnificent stained-glass window at LMU before which Father Lucas was photographed.

An inaccuracy appeared in the April 2 article on Loyola Marymount University's expansion. When LMU acquired the property in 1983, the university met with neighbors and presented a plan to house 500 students and a proposal for faculty housing. In 1985, the design was upscaled to 1,250 beds for students, a student center, a theater and a 900-car parking structure. There has never been any "scaling down" of the project, and in fact it has increased in size from the original design presented to the community.

Amid a debate about the role of Catholic colleges in a secular society, Loyola Marymount University this week decided to drop staff health insurance coverage for "elective" abortions and instead offer employees a separate, unsubsidized plan to cover those procedures. The move was seen on campus as a compromise between traditionalist alumni and faculty - who think the university should have nothing to do with abortion - and a more liberal group who contend LMU should not impose religious doctrine on the large number of non-Catholics it enrolls and employs.

Swallowed up in the noise and hype of big-time college basketball in our big-time sports metropolis is a delightful gem with a simply perfect name. Meet Max Good. He is the basketball coach at Loyola Marymount. If you have been paying attention to the early-season fortunes of Los Angeles-area Division I basketball teams, you might be inclined, at least at the moment, to rank LMU the region's No. 1. En route to their current 4-2 record, they have beaten two top-25 teams.

Loyola Marymount's first foray into college basketball's postseason in two decades is going to cost the Lions. Put the price tag at $31,500. That's how much the school will pay CollegeInsider.com to host Pacific on Wednesday night at 7:30 in the first round of its third-tier tournament. "It's not the NCAA tournament, but it's an opportunity to continue to play and practice," Loyola Marymount Coach Max Good said. "It's a reward for players to play on.... We're not at the point in our program where we can look down at anything."

Re "Republican Protesters on Berkeley Campus," letters, April 29: I find it offensive that a letter writer is of the opinion that college Republicans are rich kids unwilling to make sacrifices. Personally, I do not drive a BMW or a Mercedes-Benz. In fact, I drive nothing because I'm a college student and can't afford a car. Not only am I broke, but I also am incurring debts to help pay for my education. This is true of every college Republican I know. Second, who is he to judge our willingness to go to war?

He took up photography as a serious adjunct to his day job in urological surgery less than 10 years ago and has shot broadly and prolifically -- among other subjects, the landscapes of China and Vietnam; abstract crystal patterns; the skies, surfers and lifeguard stations of Malibu; the inner and outer workings of a FedEx hub in Tennessee; seascapes of Vancouver Island;...

Things have been far from fine at the 'Dine lately, and Loyola Marymount's bittersweet run to the Elite Eight in 1990 feels like all of the nearly 18 years ago that it was. These days, the once-prominent programs at Pepperdine and Loyola are the dregs of the West Coast Conference, tied for last with Portland and San Francisco.
