USD Plays Host to Athletes In Action

November 06, 1987|CHRIS ELLO

SAN DIEGO — Hank Egan, the University of San Diego basketball coach, can wait until 10 minutes before tonight's exhibition game against Athletes In Action to turn in his starting lineup.

And he said he'll probably need that long before he decides which Toreros will take the floor for the 7:30 tipoff in the USD Sports Center.

Danny Means, the only returning starter from last year's 24-6 team, is a sure starter at guard, but after that, Egan still has some decisions to make.

"We have some kids with some injuries, and we'll need to find out who can play before we know who can start," Egan said.

Forward Marty Munn fractured his chin last week and has missed some practice time. Center Jim Pelton has been bothered by a bad back. Both may be able to play, and if they can, they will be joined by Mike Haupt and Craig Cottrell in the starting lineup.

Egan said that if neither Munn nor Pelton starts, Kelvin Means, a freshman point guard, will join his brother, Danny, in the backcourt.

AIA is coming off a 111-76 victory over Point Loma Nazarene in which forward Zack Jones scored 18 points. AIA (3-0) has beaten USD the last two years.
