Transcript stayed focused on his academics and applied the same intensity to his rehabilitation efforts. If effort plus talent produces success, look for Anderson to be as good as new for Arizona State and as good as a prospect gets to a future employer. "I wouldn't mind something with an international aspect," Anderson said. "There are a lot of import-export opportunities, with Asia having such a strong business community. And there are U.S. firms with offices in Taiwan." Indeed, it is a global society we live in these days. And people like Anderson are paying the stiff price to eventually profit from that. The Sun Devil standout, another example to some admiring teammates, said the key is dedication, time management and, whenever possible, planning ahead. "It's pretty hard to try to stay on top of things," Anderson said. "But having learned the language when I lived on Taiwan has given me a big advantage here." Living in Atlanta and having the benefit of Georgia Tech's curriculum has been a huge edge for Oliver, a 6-4 senior guard and one-third of perhaps the best backcourt combination in the country. He originally wanted to study architecture. But scheduling problems and an eye- opening summer job changed his mind and his still-ambitious plans to major in build- Georgia Tech guard Brian Oliver hopes to construct buildings as well as he designs winning formulas for his Yellow Jackets. Flying through the lane is not the only bit of aeronautics Purdue's Tony Jones performs. ing construction. "A lot of the courses I needed there were in conflict with basketball," he said. "And after spending a summer with an architectural firm, I saw you could make a lot more money starting out in building construction." Oliver started with an excellent perspective on education and the opportunities it was likely to bring. The rest was merely a matter of applying those lessons. And frankly, it is about time people like Alec Kessler, Tony Jones, Matt Anderson and Brian Oliver were recognized for the numbers on their transcripts, not just the ones they wear on their backs. He decided to put academics first, basketball a strong second and social activities wherever they had to fall. "My parents always stressed academics," Oliver said. "They didn't want to let any school use me. And I wanted to do something interesting. When that's the case, you don't mind spending the extra time." Apparently, he has spent his hours wisely. Oliver is close to being an honors student in a demanding program at one of the tougher schools in the country. The sacrifices were not always easy. And people did not always understand. But most of them do now, when they see the success he has had. "I spend a lot more hours on academics than most athletes," Oliver said. "But when my teammates see up stay up all night studying for a test or stay in all weekend working on a project, they always say, 'Man, I admire you!' " It is not hard to know why. There is something almost noble about making the most of one's potential. It does not happen every day. But it happened with these four student- athletes. They parlayed their athletic talent into opportunities, followed their dreams and made them reality. $) 22
