America didn't have a clue about the Black Coaches Assn. until January, when the 3,000-member organization threatened to shut down college basketball with a nationwide boycott. In the time it took to issue the threat, the BCA suddenly became a major power broker in college athletics. At the core of the BCA's concerns is the belief that NCAA legislation and policies don't have the student-athlete's--more specifically, the minority student-athlete's--best interests at heart.

Although he makes his living as an accountant, Joe Perry's life is basketball and the street children who play it. To them, this Christian man in shorts and T-shirt is both coach and guiding light, instilling character and respect along with the man-to-man defense. "He's like the father I never had," said Stais Boseman of Inglewood, a 6-foot-2 eighth-grader on Perry's champion 14-and-under Long Beach Lakers. "He does a lot for us. You don't have money, he buys you stuff to eat. He teaches basketball and sportsmanship."

Hanks, an Aztecs assistant since 1987, said the opportunity to work with Drake's new head coach, Rudy Washington, is too good to pass up.
