Rodrick Rhodes, who has a sprained left knee, will undergo an MRI examination today and was listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against California by USC Coach Henry Bibby. Rhodes injured the knee during the first half of the Trojans' victory over Washington State last Saturday. Injured guard Danny Walker did not practice Monday because of a sore knee, but Bibby expects him to play against Cal.

It's there on his left arm, tattooed for all time, "Everything happens for a reason." The reason he's a first-round draft choice of the Houston Rockets, taken 24th overall, said Rodrick Rhodes, is "because it was meant to be." "It's a dream that every kid has from the first time he steps on a court. I've had it since I was 7." It wasn't a certainty, even in his own mind.

Arms reaching across a steel rail, children on tiptoe hope to slap the hand of the superstar. Stais Boseman, the only All-Pacific 10 Conference player for USC, walks by without so much as a reach. He is not the one they want. David Crouse, Jaha Wilson, both fine senior players, leave practice at the Charlotte Coliseum without so much as a cheer from the young fans.

The legend that is supposed to be Rodrick Rhodes is happily lost. He is a New Jersey guy--wearing a New York Yankee cap tilted up and slightly to the right--but on a December day is walking across the USC campus under a blue California sky. "This is the best place for Rodrick Rhodes," he said. Rhodes has been talking about himself in the third person since ninth grade. He was having to do "what's best for Rodrick," back in 1988, when he became only the second freshman to start at famous St.

USC needed something, a kick, a jolt, something to change its fortunes and remind seniors Rodrick Rhodes and Stais Boseman how they and the Trojans are capable of playing. So Thursday night in the Trojans' Pacific 10 Conference opener against Washington, Coach Henry Bibby sent out the starting lineup with small forward Rhodes at the point guard spot and moved Boseman to small forward.

Rodrick Rhodes tried to win it early, Stais Boseman late, and every other USC player who walked onto the floor at Tennessee's Thompson-Boling Arena at some point thought he would be the man to defeat the Volunteers on Wednesday night. So after USC lost to a team it shouldn't have, 71-59, before a quiet 12,459, the blame was spread equally across a somber Trojan locker room, but also directed slightly at the two seniors who did little to prevent the loss.

USC's coach and players had said repeatedly that Rodrick Rhodes would reappear when most needed, but in the past weeks it was a statement that seemed as unstable as the Trojans' NCAA tournament chances. But Thursday night at Washington State's Friel Court, with USC near its boiling point, Rhodes appeared. He didn't come up with the key steal as Gary Johnson did in USC's 92-85 victory, nor did he ice the game with free throws, that task being left for forward Jaha Wilson and center David Crouse.

David Crouse was in a Santa Monica restaurant. Rodrick Rhodes at a West Los Angeles apartment. Stais Boseman was rumored to be somewhere in Inglewood. And USC Coach Henry Bibby, on what turned out to be the biggest day in his coaching career, was scouting a junior college tournament in Texas and was not heard from. But all of them, at least from later accounts, were doing the same thing at approximately 3:40 p.m. on Sunday. "We were going crazy," Rhodes said.
