CSU Fullerton

Cal State Fullerton got off to an 11-10 start over their first 21 games this year. The Titans hit a losing streak versus Hawaii, UC Davis, CSU Bakersfield, UC Riverside and UC San Diego from there. It’s been a 3-1 run since with wins over Cal Poly. Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara.

Matched up against UC Santa Barbara over the weekend, Cal State Fullerton came out of the break with a 43-36 edge. The Titans kept it up on a 36-34 run the rest of the way and won it 79-70. Leading team scorer DJ Brewton put up 30 points with six rebounds and two steals.

UC Riverside Highlanders

Over on the Highlanders’ side, their year began with an 8-15 run. UC Riverside would win their next four over CSU Bakersfield, UC Irvine, CSU Fullerton and UC Davis. Since then it’s been a 1-2 run with losses to UC San Diego and Hawaii around a win versus Cal Poly.

Matched up against Hawaii on Saturday, the Highlanders trailed 30-24 going into the second half. UC Riverside fought back and forced overtime but eventually lost 76-73 after an 11-8 run in the extra period. Nate Pickens topped the team on his 16 points, while Kyle Owens doubled on 12 points and 12 boards.


I’ll lean toward CSU Fullerton. The Titans had a nice offensive game versus the Gauchos in their last outing, hitting 50 percent from the field alongside a 36-29 rebounding advantage. CSUF has been playing well over this 3-1 run with 68 or more points in all three wins.

Last time these teams met up back on February 15, the Titans took an 81-73 home loss. In that one, CSU Fullerton shot 42.9 percent from the field with a 37-32 deficit on the boards and just nine team assists. The Titans need to clamp down on defense a little better this time, but they should have enough scoring to hang around and potentially cover in the road rematch.

Andrew’s Pick CSU Fullerton Titans +4.5
