The call came without warning. Good thing Cal State Northridge Coach Bobby Braswell was sitting down. On the line was Rico Harris, prize recruit of a select few big-time colleges that most certainly did not include Northridge. The coach and player had been friendly for some time, so Braswell figured Harris simply wanted to shoot the breeze. Instead, Harris said he wanted to shoot the ball for Northridge. Become a Matador. Play for Braswell. Now. "It was amazing," Braswell said.

Most Cal State Northridge students are enjoying winter break somewhere other than at basketball games, judging from the sparse crowd Tuesday night, but the Matadors continued to bone up for their biggest tests. In a final tuneup before opening Big Sky Conference play, the Matadors used a barrage of dunks, steals, three-pointers and just about anything else they desired to overpower Lewis-Clark State, 88-51, before 551 at the Northridge gymnasium.

* IDAHO STATE (2-9, 0-1) at CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE (8-5, 0-1), 7 p.m.: Northridge, 4-0 at home, begins a stretch of three Big Sky Conference home games. The Matadors opened conference play with a 96-79 overtime loss at Northern Arizona, a game in which they clawed back from a 20-point second-half deficit only to be outscored, 21-4, in overtime. Forward Rico Harris appears fully recovered from a hip pointer that kept him sidelined for five games.

Rico Harris, Brian Heinle, Derrick Higgins and Carl Holmes combined to score the first 16 points as host Cal State Northridge beat Southern California College, 92-50. Although it came at the expense of an overmatched NAIA opponent, the victory was a landmark one for Northridge. The only other time the Matadors (3-2) have been over .500 since joining Division I in 1989 was after a season-opening victory. SCC committed 28 turnovers.

Tommie Prince, 18; Rico Harris, 18; and George Gervin, 19, all recruited for the Arizona State basketball team but academically ineligible, won't face criminal charges in the alleged sexual and physical assault of a female student and another woman in the athletic dormitory. Maricopa County Atty. Rick Romley said Tuesday that a review by his office showed there was little chance that any of the men, all freshmen, would be convicted because of conflicting stories.
