The Cal State Fullerton Titans and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors meet in college basketball action from Stan Sheriff Center on Thursday.
Cal State Fullerton enters this one at 10-17 this year. In their last four games, Cal State Fullerton has gone 2-2, beating UC Riverside and Cal Poly while falling to UC Davis and UCSB.
In the loss to UCSB, Cal State Fullerton’s Brandon Kamga led the team with 20 points, five rebounds and two assists. Jackson Rowe added 18 points, seven rebounds and one assist there, and Wayne Arnold put up 11 points and four rebounds.
Over on the Hawaii side, they’re 15-11 this year. In their last six games, Hawaii is 1-5, beating UC Riverside while losing otherwise to UCSB, Cal Poly, Long Beach State, UC Irvine and Long Beach State again.
In the loss to LBSU, Hawaii’s Eddie Stansberry put up 19 points, four rebounds and one assist. The only other Hawaii player in double-figures there was Justin Webster with 15 points, two rebounds and one assist.
Hawaii is 12-5 ATS in their last 17 Thursday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five after a straight-up loss. Hawaii is 1-5 ATS in their last six after an ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last four home games.
Meanwhile, Cal State Fullerton is 0-4 ATS in their last four Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. Cal State Fullerton is 1-5 ATS in their last six overall and the over is 7-1 in their last eight overall.
Over the last few weeks, Cal State Fullerton has been scoring pretty well, with 78 or more in five of their last eight games. CSUF can let the better offensive teams get away a bit however, as evidenced by the 202 points allowed to Cal Poly in their last pair combined.
As for Hawaii, they’ve been a little sluggish scoring-wise lately, with 63 or fewer in each of their last four games. I think this sets up well for Cal State Fullerton, so I’m leaning that route on the cover.
