After tinkering with his starting lineup all season, University of San Diego Coach Hank Egan figures he may have found one that will work. That combination will be tested when the Toreros play Cal State Fullerton in Titan Gym at 7:35 tonight.
Egan started guard Efrem Leonard for the first time against San Diego State Saturday. Leonard responded by scoring 15 points. That helped USD (3-3) win its biggest game so far this season, 76-53.
"We had a hard time motivating him at practice," Egan said of Leonard. "But he sat for a few games and he got motivated."
Jim Pelton, a 6-foot 9-inch forward, had 20 points and 7 rebounds in that game and was named the West Coast Athletic Conference player of the week.
