After halting a string of three straight losing seasons with a 15-15 campaign, it is perhaps fitting that the last name of the most heralded addition to the Vanguard University men's basketball roster is synonymous with third-year coach Rhett Soliday's ultimate goal. "Our most talented overall player is Preston Wynne," said Soliday, who lost six seniors and returns only 24.2% of his scoring from last season, in which the Lions broke even overall, but finished 7-11 in the Golden State Athletic Conference.

Vanguard (5-1) did manage to work in Esther Timmermans jumpers of 15, 12 and 14 feet on its way to making 27 of 57 field-goal attempts (47.4%)

COSTA MESA — Since Ralph Grajeda took over as Vanguard University baseball coach before last season, the Lions have steadily and noticeably gained ground. But after dropping three spots in the NAIA poll on Tuesday following a week in which they did not play a game, the Lions experienced some minor slippage on the diamond Wednesday in a 5-2 loss to Golden State Athletic Conference visitor Point Loma Nazarene. The No. 9-ranked Lions (25-7, 16-5 in conference), who were ranked No. 6 in the previous poll, believed to be the highest ranking the program had ever achieved, frustrated Grajeda and his staff against the No. 12-ranked Sea Lions.
