Travis Spivey didn't last at Georgia Tech. His schoolwork often interfered with his night-life. At Iowa State, his career was derailed before it started when he pleaded guilty to statutory rape for having sex with a 15-year-old girl. Spivey needed a third chance and realized there wouldn't be a fourth. That's how he ended up at Salt Lake Community College, hoping for another taste of big-time college basketball. "I'm just happy to get another chance," said the 6-foot-2 sophomore point guard.

If it wasn't already, the word is definitely out on how to defend against Cal State Fullerton center Winston Peterson. Utah's strategy of double teaming the Titans' leading scorer worked perfectly as the Utes cruised to an 84-63 nonconference victory Tuesday night. In the last three games, the 6-foot-6 center has not scored more than 17 points after getting at least 23 points in four contests. Nearly every time he touched the ball Tuesday, Utah had at least two 6-foot-9 players around him.
