The Cal State Fullerton Titans and the Marquette Golden Eagles face off on Thursday in college basketball action.
The Cal State Fullerton Titans are coming off of back-to-back losses and now they face a tough customer in Marquette. CSUF lost by 10 points at USC and followed it up with a 22-point loss to San Jose State. Alex Harris is averaging 17.7 points per game but he is doubtful for this one. Michael Williams is averaging 13.6 points and 5.2 rebounds, Marquis Horne is averaging 10.6 points and 46 rebounds, and Josh Gentry is averaging 9.6 points. Cal State Fullerton is averaging 72.4 points and they are shooting 45.9 percent while defensively they are allowing 72 points and their opponents are shooting 40 percent. CSUF are up against it without Harris in the lineup against Marquette.

The Marquette Golden Eagles have two losses this season but they are both to solid teams, Arizona State and Ohio State. Marquette has a game Wisconsin down the road as well as a Big East schedule. Todd Mayo is averaging 13.8 points and 4.2 rebounds to lead Marquette after missing last season. Davante Gardener is averaging 13.6 points and 6.0 rebounds, Jamil Wilson is averaging 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds, and Chris Otule is averaging 8.4 points and 4.2 rebounds. Marquette is averaging 69.4 points and they are shooting 38.7 percent while defensively they are allowing 62.2 points and their opponents are shooting 38.2 percent. Marquette was ranked to start the season and I don’t think we have seen the best out of them.
Cal State Fullerton is 2-9 against the spread in their last 11 home games, 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 Thursday games, and 16-35-1 against the spread in their last 52 home games against a team with a losing road record. Marquette is 11-3 against the spread following a loss, 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight non-conference games, and 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10 games.
Marquette is much the better team and without Alex Harris CSUF has no chance of covering here.
