No one had given much thought to the notion that Angelique Lee, center on Cal State Long Beach's basketball team, was a secret weapon. A big weapon, surely. An injured weapon, of course.

When Sheryl Jones and the other Cal State Fullerton guards faced the full-court pressure of Cal State Long Beach Friday, they knew they faced trouble. Their plan was to move the ball up slowly, with short passes out of the darting reaches of Traci Waites, Penny Toler and the other 49ers. But try as they did, the Titans couldn't escape the pressure, and seventh-ranked Long Beach sped to an 81-61 victory in a semifinal game of the Big West Conference women's tournament in Long Beach Arena.

This time, however, No. 2-seeded Nevada Las Vegas woke up just in time, defeating the third-seeded Titans, 61-55, Friday afternoon at the Forum.
