The days when he owned an 8-foot python and went by the name "Psycho" have passed, but Rolf Jacobs of Cal State Long Beach remains an eccentric in the world of college basketball. "He's a free spirit, he's going to be himself," Seth Greenberg, a 49er assistant, said of Jacobs, a senior from Fountain Valley High School who has stepped in as a starting forward 2 years after being dropped from the University of Arizona team for playing too roughly during practice.

Rolf Jacobs, a reserve forward suspended by University of Arizona basketball Coach Lute Olson last week, was dropped from the team Monday, apparently for two incidents in which he elbowed teammates. "He's been dismissed for disciplinary reasons, and beyond that I have no comment," Olson said. Olson said he expected Jacobs, a 6-foot 7-inch junior from Fountain Valley High School, to transfer to another school.
