He can't even begin to comprehend what he has just heard. "Coach said that?" he moans. In the corner of Weber State's locker room, Arceneaux's teammate and friend Chris Woods is doubled over, trying to stay on his feet, but laughter is weighing him down. "You're a sweetheart," Woods says, trying to catch his breath. "Man, coach can't be saying things like that," Arceneaux says. "I got to watch myself around coach now." Arceneaux looks backs at Woods, who is still red in the face with laughter. "You didn't hear that, huh Chris?" he says worriedly. "I don't want you to think nothin.' "Man, I can't be a sweetheart." Earlier Tuesday afternoon, WSU coach Joe Cravens had described Arceneaux as, well, you know. The thing is, you spend five minutes with the man who will be swapping elbows with Karl Malone next year and you'll agree with Cravens.Arceneaux is a sweetheart, but he doesn't want to hear it. WSU's unlucky basketball opponents don't want to hear it either this season. They know too well that Arceneaux is anything but a sweetie on the court. Take a gander at his performance a year ago and you'll know why. All he did was score 22.3 points a game, leading the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament where they upset tradition- rich North Carolina in the first round. Arceneaux scored let him yawn, first 36 points to become the first in dividual to drop that many points on the Tarheels since 1967. His response? , , . "Well, my grandmother always told me about the window of opportunity," Arceneaux said. ,- . " ' - "She told me that everytime I have an oppor- tunity I should try and get through that win- dow. I just felt the North Carolina game was a window of opportunity for me." - , It was a window the size of a toothpick, but somehow Arceneaux pulled his teammates through it and now he's reaping the benefits. A few weeks ago, Arceneaux was named a pre-season candidate for the John R. Wooden and ' Naismith Awards. He is currently being featured in more magazines than Jennifer Love Hewitt. And over the summer, he put his name in the NBA draft to "see if there were any eyes and what the chances were." He says he "got a good bit of response" from NBA teams, and that's all he wanted, so he pulled his name from the draft. Now he just wants to focus on WSU and let the NBA sit on the back burner until summer rolls around. "I try not to think about that right now," he says. "I try not to get caught up thinking if I have a good game my status might go up or if I have a bad game my status might go down. Winning games at Weber State is what's important right now." You'd think Arceneaux's head would be the size of the Good- ,' See Arceneaux page 2 " 1 V CSI . I i . co -i 3D I m '" I V . ..

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
