Showman that he is, Rasul Salahuddin requires a stage. The more intense and significant the setting, the better Salahuddin typically plays. This is not to say that Salahuddin, Long Beach State's senior point guard, cares less and does little if he's not challenged. It's just that "clutch time," as he often puts is, is Salahuddin's favorite time. He came through again for the 49ers on Saturday night.

Three days after losing to a team that shot 27%, Long Beach State was trailing a bunch of short guys from St. Mary's by two points late in the first half. About as late as a team can push it. Nineteen minutes and 59.4 seconds already had been played. 49er point guard Rasul Salahuddin had the ball out of bounds, just inside the halfcourt stripe, and 0.6 of a second to make something happen--but what, exactly, was not immediately clear.

Rasul Salahuddin lay in the street with a hole in his right knee, bullets flying above him and screams ringing in his ears, so it seemed like a good time for some serious self-evaluation. Salahuddin had been shot for the second time in three weeks during the summer of 1993 near his home in Mount Vernon, N.Y. A talented basketball player, Salahuddin made an important decision as he watched his blood spread across the ground: time to start making better choices.

Reserve senior point guard Tye Mays started slowly because he wasn't allowed to start at the beginning. Now that he's been around for a while, Mays is back to being himself. Mays received some poor counseling from school officials and was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA for the 49ers' first three games. Since returning to the lineup Dec. 21, Mays has been a positive force.
