The Cal State Fullerton Titans shouldn’t post much of a problem for UCLA this afternoon. The Titans have lost seven in a row since they beat Southeast Missouri State on November 27th. Cal State Fullerton has played three teams that the Bruins have played. They beat Stanislaus State, whom UCLA beat in their exhibition match by 30, by 20 points. They lost to Hofstra by 22 and they lost to Denver by 3. While the Bruins lost to Hofstra by 10, they beat Denver by 19. So, expect UCLA to hand the Titans a double-digit loss this afternoon.
What will make today’s game a bigger blowout is the fact that the Titans aren’t a very good three-point shooting team. As a team, CSUF is shooting just 27.4% from beyond the arc. Sophomore guard Wayne Arnold, their best three-point shooter with more than 10 attempts, is shooting just 32.2%.
Cal State Fullerton will rely on a pair of senior guards for a lot of their points as Austin Awosika leads the team with 14.0 ppg and Brandon Kamga is second with 11.5. Arnold is the third Titan averaging in double figures with 11.0 ppg.
The only guy who seems guaranteed to start is forward Devon Clare as the Titans coach Dedrique Taylor has been using a different starting lineup in each game recently in an attempt to end his team’s losing streak. Nothing has helped so far and it shouldn’t matter this afternoon.
