Sneed Makes Debut as Titans’ Coach in Scrimmage Tonight

Cal State Fullerton’s basketball team, under acting coach John Sneed, makes its first public appearance of the season in an intrasquad scrimmage at 7:30 tonight in Titan Gym.

Sneed replaced George McQuarn, who resigned suddenly Thursday citing “personal reasons.”

Fullerton, which will have only 11 players available, is led by community-college transfer Cedric Ceballos, a 6-foot 7-inch junior forward, and Derek Jones, a 6-7 senior who is returning after recovering from injuries suffered in a drive-by shooting last year.

Fullerton, 12-17 last year, opens the season Dec. 1 against Utah.


The Fullerton women’s team will hold an intrasquad scrimmage at 6 p.m.

The women are led by senior point guard Cheryl Jones and Gena Miller, a 6-3 sophomore center who was the freshman of the year last season in the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn., now the Big West Conference.

The women’s team, 18-11 last year, opens its season Nov. 26 in the Titan Converse tournament.
