Coach Pete Cassidy shot a glance at a sheet of statistics after the game Wednesday and a couple of the numbers glared back. Six and 11. Thirty-six and 47. He couldn't resist a small smile. For the Cal State Northridge basketball team, just another night on the road. The smaller numbers were Northridge's free throws and attempts. The larger digits belonged to New Mexico. "I don't have a good defense for free throws," Cassidy cracked. He needed one.

The tallest basketball recruit in Cal State Northridge history has left school after one of the shortest stays. Paul Brandt, a 6-foot-11 center from Thousand Oaks High, has dropped out of Northridge for "medical reasons," Coach Pete Cassidy said Wednesday. Brandt committed to Northridge on the first day of the NCAA early signing period last November. He was expected to redshirt this season. "We saw him as a prospect who would be more of a contributor in the future," Cassidy said.

Chris Yard, Cal State Northridge's top rebounder and post player, will miss the remainder of the basketball season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Dr. Lestor Cohn, Northridge's team orthopedic specialist, discovered the tear during arthroscopic surgery Friday at Encino Hospital. "It was just what we feared," Cohn said. "That is exactly the type of thing that causes the knee to give out continuously."

Cal State Northridge's beleaguered men's basketball team, already reeling from a string of misfortune, took another big hit on Wednesday. Chris Yard, the Matadors' top rebounder, has either torn cartilage or a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, a magnetic resonance imaging test revealed. "If he has torn cartilage he could be back in a week," said Dr. Lester Cohn, Northridge's team orthopedist. "If he has a torn cruciate he's out for the season."
