On the day he was hired to resuscitate the Loyola Marymount basketball program four years ago, Coach Steve Aggers vowed to tap into the pool of Southern California high school talent that the previous coaching staff had largely abandoned. Aggers immediately set his sights on Compton Dominguez High, then the nation's No. 1 team, and found Sherman Gay, an athletic but raw 6-foot-7 forward who hadn't captured the fancy of many recruiters. "We just went after him hard," Aggers recalled.

Give him the slightest chance and Steve Aggers will trumpet the tradition of Loyola Marymount men's basketball, even though its glory period a decade ago was as brief as it was brilliant. Inevitably, any conversation with Aggers leads to his wanting to "restore the roar" of the program. When he was hired last April, the four West Coast Conference championships and that miracle 1990 NCAA tournament run were a distant memory.

How bad did it get for Loyola Marymount last season? Consider that when coach Charles Bradley resigned two weeks before season's end, the Lions simply stopped practicing. It was the final blow to a 2-26 season that didn't include a single victory over a Division I team. "It was worse than you can imagine," said Pablo Machado, the team's Venezuelan-born senior center. "As bad as it could get, that's how it got."

Pepperdine guard Brandon Armstrong was selected the West Coast Conference men's basketball player of the week. Armstrong scored 57 points in two victories over Loyola Marymount, including 40 on 16-of-24 shooting last Wednesday for the Waves (12-5, 4-0 in WCC play). A 6-foot-3 junior, he has been drawing the attention of defenses--and pro scouts--in recent weeks. "Armstrong showed why he's a great pro prospect," Loyola Marymount Coach Steve Aggers said.

*SAN DIEGO (8-5) at LOYOLA MARYMOUNT (4-9), 7, KXLU-FM (88.9)--The Lions lost their last two games to Nevada Las Vegas (75-60) and San Diego State (61-58), and the task doesn't get any easier in their West Coast Conference opener. The Toreros won 20 games last season and, with Gonzaga and Pepperdine, are seen as the class of the WCC. They have lost four of their last five, however, after a 7-1 start. Without a star, but with five returning starters, San Diego relies on its experience.
