Fullerton Goes From Bad to Worse in Loss

November 17, 1998|LON EUBANKS

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Playing Kansas State in Bramlage Coliseum was a big enough challenge for Cal State Fullerton in its season opener.

But for the rebuilding Titans to have to do it without Ike Harmon, their top player, seemed to border on cruel and unusual punishment Monday night.

Harmon, a 6-foot-7 forward, sat out the game because of a sprained ankle, and Kansas State coasted to a 72-51 victory in front of 8,695.

"We expected it to be a tough game, playing a good Big 12 team, and that's what it was," Titan Coach Bob Hawking said. "Obviously, not having Ike is going to impact us."

Harmon was injured in practice Saturday night.

Without Harmon, the Titans were outrebounded, 58-35, and shot only 27.5% from the floor.

Kenroy Jarrett and Mark Murphy scored 11 points apiece for Fullerton. Freshman guard Josh Kimm made five of eight three-point shots to lead Kansas State with 15 points.
