Joe Small wears his occupation on his back. 3 That is the objective every time Small sets up behind the three-point stripe, the magic number Small is supposed to provide with a flick of a wrist, the best-laid plan in the Cal State Fullerton playbook.

Compared to the power forward-like wide body he had in high school, Cal State Fullerton guard Joe Small looks more like a turboprop these days. The sleek, more aerodynamically designed 1990-91 model has shed 20 pounds since his senior year at Bolsa Grande and seems to be running a lot more efficiently without that carry-on baggage in the tail section. "He always had kind of a big rear end--that's why he was such an effective rebounder," said Tony Lipold, Small's high school coach.
