When the Cal State Fullerton men's basketball team takes the floor for its "Midnight Basketball" session to open practice Friday night, spectators shouldn't have trouble spotting newcomer Brandon Campbell. He'll be the one with the 41 1/2-inch vertical jump--the best on the team. That's more than three inches better than the jump of junior Ike Harmon, who also spends a lot of time above the rim. Campbell also has sprinter's speed and can clear seven feet in the high jump.

The day remains so vivid, locked away in his mind's eye. Ron Kamaka had worked out, done a few things in the elementary school classroom where he was teaching in Hawaii, had lunch with his sister, and then went with a girlfriend to a beach to enjoy one of the last few days of summer vacation. The sun was warm and bright, the water a dazzling blue. A wonderful day to be young, healthy and so full of fun.

When Cal State Fullerton opens its basketball season at home on Wednesday, the basketball player, Rodney Anderson, will be at the game.
