Cal State Fullerton Titans Preview

CSU Fullerton dropped to 12-16 after falling to CSU Northridge at home by five, 65-60. The Titans fell apart down the stretch versus the Titans, and they’ll try to bounce back here in Long Beach. Fullerton is scoring 66.8 points per game, on 42.2% shooting, while allowing 67.3 ppg, and they’re currently 10th in the Big West with a 5-11 record in league play. 

Fullerton’s Impact Players

  • Senior guard Dominic Brewer is going out with a bang, and after hitting the 20-Pooh r mark in three straight games, he leads Fullerton in scoring (16.1), while grabbing 4.8 rpg.  
  • Clearwater native Max Jones led the way with 21 points in the UCSB matchup, and he’s averaging 15.3 ppg.

Long Beach State Preview

Long Beach State moved to 18-10 after falling to Hawaii in Honolulu, 73-65. The Beach couldn’t recover from a slow start against the Warriors, and they’ll attempt to complete the season sweep of the Titans here at home. LBSU is scoring 78.4 points per game, on 45.6% shooting, while allowing 68.0 ppg, and they’re currently 4th in the Big West with a 10-6 record in league play. 

Long Beach’s Impact Players

  • Portland native Marcus Tsohonis has remained consistent over the course of conference play, and he leads Long Beach in scoring (17.1). 
  • Third-year forward Lassina Traore has grabbed 14 boards or more in three of the last four games, and he leads LBSU in rebounding (9.9), while scoring 11.7 ppg.
  • Junior forward Aboubacar Traore is second in the team at 12.4 ppg and 7.8 rpg.  

Fullerton vs Long Beach Trends

  • FULL is 12-14 against the spread, with a 12-16 over/under record
  • The Titans are 5-5 over their last ten games, and they’re 8-7 on the road this season. 
  • LBSU is 13-13 against the spread, with a 16-10 O/U record
  • The Beach are 6-4 over their previous ten games, and they’re 4-4 in Long Beach this season. 

Fullerton vs Long Beach Prediction

Long Beach had their five-game win streak snapped in Honolulu, and there’s a good chance they respond swiftly here at home against Fullerton. LBSU has the best frontcourt in the conference, and that size should be able to overwhelm a smaller CSUF team. I like moving the number, and backing Long Beach this Thursday night in Big West play.
