It was a little more than happenstance that brought Sonja Akkerman from New Zealand to play for the Cal Baptist women's basketball team four seasons ago. Coach Dave King says it was a case of having a good contact in the field. Akkerman, a 6-foot-2 forward who leads the NAIA District 3 with an average of 23.5 points and 13.4 rebounds, said she had a longstanding desire to play in the United States but didn't have a connection.

Once again, Cal Poly Pomona is starting the season as the consensus favorite to win the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. title. The Broncos, who have won or shared nine consecutive titles since the conference added women's basketball in 1981, finished with a 29-4 record and placed third in the NCAA Division II last season. So it was hardly a surprise when the Broncos were ranked No. 2 in the division in a preseason poll. Other college division races do not appear to be so clear-cut.
