CSU Fullerton has lost 10 of their last 12 games and have really struggled on the offensive end this season as they come into this game ranked 325th in scoring offense & 254th in FG%.

Long Beach State has lost 4 of their last 6 games and haven’t shown much on either end of the court this season as the 49ers currently rank 254th in scoring offense, 330th in scoring defense, and 291st in defensive FG%.

CSU Fullerton has struggled this season, however, their defense has been decent, ranking T-129th in scoring defense, and they do have an impressive win at UCLA this season. CSU Fullerton can struggle offensively, however, I think they’ll find some success against a Long Beach State defense that hasn’t been able to stop anyone all season and as I think this will be a close game, I’m taking CSU Fullerton and the points in this one. Good Luck!
