The man has star quality. But you have to wonder: Do players know who the New Mexico State coach is because he was a two-time NBA All-Star in the 1980s, or because he played Coach Bill Fuller on the NBC Saturday morning show "Hang Time" for three years in the 1990s? Reggie Theus, who starred at Inglewood High and played in the 1977 Final Four for Jerry Tarkanian at Nevada Las Vegas before a 13-season NBA career, has turned New Mexico State around in a hurry.

It didn't matter that Cal State Fullerton forward Bruce Bowen played one of his best offensive games of the season Tuesday night, scoring 22 points against New Mexico State. The shot that most will remember was Bowen's last, a 22-foot air ball from the top of the key with two seconds left. That miss and Aaron Sunderland's missed free throw with 17 seconds to play left Fullerton with a 69-67 loss to the Aggies in a Big West Conference game before 1,824 at Titan Gym.
