Oct. 27, 2007

Fullerton, Calif. - Six players were in double figures and four of them were in White as that squad defeated the Blue, 56-40, Saturday morning in the annual Titan Athletic Club pre-season intrasquad men's basketball scrimmage.

Kenneth Alexander and Washington State transfer Josh Akognon each had 12 points for the victorious White while Marcio Lassiter added 11 and Marcus Morgan tallied 10. Alexander led the White with 9 rebounds. The teams played three 10-minute periods.

Frank Robinson had 11 points and 7 rebounds to pace the Blue. Saddleback College transfer Gerard Anderson had 10 points and led all rebounders with 10.

The Blue jumped out to a 6-0 lead but was outscored 21-6 in the balance of the 10-minute first "third." The White made 21 of 23 free throws on the day. The Blue made 15 of 21.

Neither team shot the ball very well from the floor as is typical in early-season action. The White made 15 of 37 shots while the Blue made only 12 of 43.

Fullerton will have a closed scrimmage next weekend at USC. The Titans have a Nov. 6 exhibition with Biola University in Titan Gym.
