By now, guard Steve deLaveaga of Cal Lutheran in Thousand Oaks has heard just about every reason he doesn't have a future in professional basketball. Mostly, the reports say the 6-foot-4, 180-pound senior from San Ramon is too slow or too skinny to make it in the National Basketball Assn. Such an evaluation might discourage most. But that's what college recruiters were saying about deLaveaga before he started playing for Cal Lutheran four seasons ago.

Senior guard Steve deLaveaga scored a game-high 26 points but missed a 3-point shot attempt as time ran out in Cal Lutheran's 71-70 defeat Friday to Claremont-Mudd in the first round of the Triton Tip-Off Tournament at UC San Diego. With Cal Lutheran (2-2) trailing by a point, deLaveaga was fouled in the final 7 seconds on an apparent 3-point shot. But the officials ruled that he was passing the ball when he was fouled.

Like most good shooting guards and ball hogs, Steve deLaveaga this month found himself having to reaffirm this basketball axiom: If you lose your touch, keep shooting. In Cal Lutheran's first five games, DeLaveaga (pronounced Da-LAH-vee-ah-ga) was expanding basketball's meaning of the word brick. Going into Tuesday night's game against Cal Poly Pomona, the 6-4 sophomore had made 13 of 52 field-goal attempts.

For most of Wednesday night's Golden State Athletic Conference opener against Westmont, Cal Lutheran forward Steve deLaveaga could not quite find the range from beyond the three-point line. His shots either landed too short or too long, sending them ricocheting off the backboard. But deLaveaga found the mark just in time for the Kingsmen, converting a three-point shot with eight seconds left in regulation as Cal Lutheran forged a 68-68 tie and forced an overtime period.

UC San Diego 88, Cal Lutheran 85--Cal Lutheran center Steve Cotner made his final appearance before the home fans in a nonconference game against UC San Diego. Cotner has played in more than 90 games in four years at the school, and following Cal Lutheran's loss to San Diego, he couldn't find much difference between the most recent loss and any of the 20 the Kingsmen have suffered this season. "Tonight was like the story of our season," Cotner said. "Three points short."
