Anderson, a 6-foot 5-inch guard-forward who averaged 6 points and 4 rebounds for last season's 12-17 team, will be with the team Saturday for a game at Pacific. "What Van gives us is another player on the floor to help for practice," Sneed said.

The list of things Van Anderson can do is long. He can fix any old Volkswagen Bug until it runs fine. He can put in new seats and make sure it gets a nice paint job. On a basketball court, he can play intense, in-your-face defense--nothing spectacular, but most effective. And he can tell you who cooks about the best gumbo you'll ever taste--his mother, Sydney. One thing Anderson cannot do well is shoot a basketball, particularly not off-balance or with a hand in his face.
