Transcript Arizona State's Matt Anderson owns a dual major in Chinese and business administration. And his dedication in the classroom has produced a perfect academic record, with the exception of a B his sophomore year in organic chemistry and a C as a freshman in English composition. "I guess the teacher didn't like my ideas," Kessler said. "I have a tendency to be very practical and logical. Some of my essays were only three lines long. I guess I prefer the scientific approach." He has already been accepted by two medical schools and will someday be known as Dr. Kessler, though that title will have to wait until he is finished playing basketball. And that might take a few years, given the NBA's interest in soft-shooting, disciplined big men. But when it happens, not if, Kessler will be ready. "I chose this field because it's one of the best to prepare me for med school," said Kessler, who has already lived in 10 cities. "I enjoy a lot of the genetic aspects, and I almost majored in genetics. But orthopedics interests me, too." Almost as much as the avenue of flight intrigues Purdue's Jones, a 6-3 senior guard who loves to sail through the air on the court or in the cockpit of a plane. There is a feeling of majestic power in piloting an aircraft, not unlike the sensation of soaring to the basket for a slam with the score tied in the final minute against Indiana. "It just depends on which one I'm doing at the time," the aviation major said. "I don't think about basketball when I'm flying. But sometimes it's the same feeling, piloting a plane or going though the air on my way to the basket." With a 4.7 grade-point on a 6.0 scale, Jones has proven a rigorous academic load and a big-time college basketball career can be successfully blended. It can only happen with a dedicated effort, however. And dedication is one of the first words people use to describe the Boilermaker backcourt leader. "I was always taught academics came first," Jones said. "Flying is just something I've always wanted to do. I lived by an airport growing up, so this was a natural field to pursue." If a team takes Jones in the draft, it will also be getting someone who can fly the team plane or their commercial jet, in case of an emergency. That has been true at Purdue, too, though Jones has never been forced to spring into action. All he has had to do is convince teammates his major is real. "The other guys are always asking me questions about planes when we fly," Jones said. "Some of them found it hard to believe I could fly. But they do now." So does Boilermaker coach Gene Keady, who was Jones' passenger on a short flight from Lafayette, Indiana, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, last summer. The takeoff and landing both went smoother than any conference game. Jones dreams of being a commercial pilot someday and will be approved to fly a 727 when he leaves West Lafayette, Indiana, this spring. But has it been worth the extra time and attention an unconventional major requires? That is like asking a player if he was fouled on a collision under the basket. "It's pretty difficult," Jones said. "But if you put enough time into something, you can always come out on top. If you really want to do something, you have to stick with it." Arizona State senior Matt Anderson, a 6- 4 junior guard, stuck his promising basketball career on the line to go on a two-year mission for the Mormon church. The transfer from Ricks College, a junior college in Idaho, lived in Taiwan for two years and became fluent in the language of Mandarin Chinese, a huge aid in his double-major of Chinese and business. "I think the language just became very interesting to me," Anderson said. "After that, I wanted to keep on it. And I figured this was a great way to combine my two interests." Despite missing nearly a month this season with torn cartilage in his knee, he 20
