Titans Play First Exhibition Wednesday

The 2002-2003 Cal State Fullerton's men's basketball team, which is coming off of back-to-back 5-win seasons, plays the first of its two exhibition games when it hosts the L.A. City All-Stars on Wednesday (Nov. 13) at Titan Gym at 7 p.m. on the Fullerton campus.

Among the former college standouts the Titans will face on Saturday is former Trojan Anthony White, Pepperdine star Derrick Anderson, Cal State Northridge alumni Derrick and Keith Higgions, former Kansas Jayhawk Jelani Janisse and Long Beach State's D'Cean Bryant.

Upcoming Titan opponent Southern Cal beat the L.A. City All-Stars 95-76 this past Saturday. The Trojans trailed 44-41 at the half and 59-50 early in the second half. But USC went on a 31-5 run - which included seven consecutive made three-point baskets at one point - to go ahead 81-64 with 5:33 to play.

The Titans will likely be without the services of Brandon Campbell. Babacar Camara, who is still hampered by an achilles injury and Jamal Forcheney (knee) will be game-time decisions. The other two Titans injured earlier, Pape Sow and Bron Groomes, are ready to play.

If the roster holds true from the So. Cal game, then here is a look at who the Titans will face:

No Player Ht. Pos. School
25 White, Anthony 6-7 F USC
26 Higgins, Keith 6-5 F CSUN/Colorado State
