Cal State Fullerton's basketball team finally got the close game it wanted Saturday night against San Jose State, but the Titans came up short. A 15-foot jumper by Fullerton's James French bounced off the rim with five seconds left, and the Spartans held on for an 84-82 Big West Conference victory at the Event Center. The Titans, who had lost their previous two games by 22 points to Long Beach State and by 31 points to Pacific, are 4-15 overall and 2-9 in the Big West.

Cal State Fullerton was picked in the preseason as the worst basketball team in the Big West this year, but San Jose State clearly has been playing like it. When the two met Thursday night at the Civic Auditorium, however, it was hard to tell the difference for a while. But the Titans summoned just enough firepower in the second half to emerge with a 69-60 victory. That left the Spartans (1-13) winless in six Big West games.

Long Beach State overcame a sloppy first half and a late rally by Cal State Fullerton to defeat the Titans, 96-87, Thursday at Titan Gym. Long Beach, 16-9 and 10-7 in the Big West, outscored Fullerton (7-18, 5-12), 13-2, in a little less than two minutes midway through the second half to lead, 70-56, with 9:10 remaining. Sophomore Juaquin Hawkins gave the 49ers a big boost, scoring seven points during the run.

Winston Peterson, Cal State Fullerton's top returning player, sat out the Titans' exhibition game Thursday night against the Blue and Gold Fleet for disciplinary reasons. Peterson, a 15-point scorer last year, was suspended for the one game by Coach Bob Hawking, who declined further comment. Reserve guard Danny Robinson, also a senior, was not suited up and is ineligible until at least Dec. 17 because of academic problems last spring.
