Titans Gain a Guard, but Lose 2 Others

The Cal State Fullerton basketball team, in the midst of an overhaul for next season after saying goodby to four starters, has added one player and lost two.

The Titans have signed Danny Robinson, an honorable-mention community college All-American point guard from Wyoming. Sharif Metoyer, a back-up point guard last season, and little-used guard Casey Sheahan have left the program.

Robinson, 6 feet, averaged 12 points and eight assists for Sheridan College last season. He will be given the opportunity to replace Aaron Sunderland, whose eligibility expired last season after he moved to fifth on Fullerton's all-time assists list.

"It's (important) to have a lead guard that has the attributes Danny has," Fullerton Coach Brad Holland said. "The ability to break pressure and penetrate with the basketball as well as have the ability to lead the team on the floor."

Said Sheridan Coach Bruce Hoffman: "He's a pure point guard, that's the reason he only averaged 12 points. If they have shooters or big guys at Fullerton, he's going to make them happy. He delivers the ball real well."

Metoyer, a walk-on who averaged less than 10 minutes a game, will transfer to Long Beach City College. Sheahan, who played in only nine games, will transfer to the University of San Diego.
