Titans Won’t Renew Scholarships for Two Basketball Team Members

The scholarships of two Cal State Fullerton basketball players, David Harrison and John Williams, will not be renewed for the coming academic year, Coach Bob Hawking said Tuesday.

Hawking declined further comment, only saying that the decision involving Williams was mutual. “John is seeking a better opportunity for playing time,” said Hawking.

Harrison, a transfer from Mt. Hood (Ore.) Community College, was a part-time starter late last season as a junior after forward David Frigout was troubled by illness and an injury.


Harrison was academically ineligible until the second semester. He finished the season averaging 6.1 points and 5.2 rebounds.

Williams played in 18 of the team’s 27 games, but his playing time of 137 minutes was among the lowest on the team. Williams, a 6-foot-5 forward, played in high school at Rialto.

Frigout passed up his final year of college eligibility to play professionally in his native France.

That will leave guard Chris Dade and Chuck Overton as the only returning regulars from last year’s team that was 7-20 for the season and 5-13 in the Big West Conference. Center Winston Peterson and guard James French have ended their eligibility.
