CINCINNATI -- As Skip Prosser watched his former Loyola players warming up before yesterday's game at Xavier, he talked about mixed feelings, about how strange it felt to watch the players who gave him a ride to last season's NCAA tournament preparing to compete against him.After Prosser walked around the Cincinnati Gardens floor to shake hands with each Greyhound and wish him luck, Prosser's new team showed no such warmth.Behind a pressing, trapping, man-to-man defense and a roster packed with quickness and depth, Xavier set the tone by scoring the game's first 11 points, and the Musketeers had their way throughout an 86-51 whipping of the Greyhounds before 7,663.

A conversation with Skip Prosser can roam in many directions. His thoughts drift from the values of man-to-man defense to the challenges of fatherhood. He quotes Robert Frost, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Red Auerbach with the same enthusiasm. He is equally comfortable with a history book or a clipboard.When talking about the mission Prosser has assumed as the men's basketball coach at Loyola College, watch your step. It's fair to remind him about last season, a 2-25 season that was the worst in the Greyhounds' 85-year history.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The pachyderm in question has taken on a different context, but the riddle regarding enormous tasks remains operable in the world according to Skip Prosser. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Prosser posted that inspiration in his office at Loyola College 11 years ago, and he has dusted it off at Wake Forest. Then, it was an allusion to the wildly improbable, the NCAA tournament. Now, the imagery visualizes the daily grind required to aspire to that which goes unspoken.

On his first day at Loyola, Skip Prosser said, "The effect going to the NCAA has on a small, private college in a city is unbelievable. The place is electric on Selection Sunday, and I'm used to that kind of excitement. I'm not done living that."Pretty prophetic, wouldn't you say?Prosser smiles at the memory, recalling that it was April Fool's Day when he unveiled his bold vision, joking that "the irony wasn't lost on me, either." He was taking over a 2-25 team. Friends had told him that Baltimore was "college basketball oblivion."
