Yamen Sanders drops a large goldfish into the fish tank and watches his eight exotic fish devour it. The fish were a Christmas gift, and Sanders enjoys caring for them at home in Los Angeles. He also relishes watching them feed. Sanders, the starting center on USC's basketball team, displays the same type of aggression on the court. A 6-foot-9, 230-pound senior, Sanders is averaging a team-high 8.5 rebounds. He also is scoring 8.4 points per game.

Forward Yamen Sanders has transferred from Central Michigan to USC, Trojans basketball Coach George Raveling announced today. Sanders, 6-foot-8 and 210 pounds, averaged 6 points and 3 rebounds as a sophomore. He has two years of eligibility remaining, but he must sit out the coming season. "Yamen is a big-time rebounder and an extremely inside player," Raveling said. "He gives us depth and a promising future at a very important position."

USC turned to a three-guard offense and turned itself around Saturday against the University of Miami. The Trojans rebounded from an embarrassing loss at Maryland with a 92-71 victory over the Hurricanes before 2,784 at the Sports Arena. Sophomore guard Harold Miner scored 31 points and had six rebounds to lead the Trojans, who--with the help of senior guards Robert Pack and Duane Cooper--had no problems handling Miami's full-court pressure.

The quest has been for an identity for the USC basketball team. Harold Miner already had his. Against Cal State Sacramento on Saturday and St. Louis on Monday, Trojan Coach George Raveling held Miner out for extended periods to see what would happen. Wednesday, in a 77-60 victory over Gonzaga before 3,251 at Spokane Coliseum, the strategy bore fruit. Miner was held to six points--one in the second half--and made only two of 13 shots.
