UC Riverside Highlanders

UC Riverside started out the year pretty well, going 10-6 in their first 16 outings. The Highlanders hit a 5-1 stretch in the next half-dozen games, beating UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, Cal Poly, UC Davis and UC San Diego again. 

On Thursday versus CSU Bakersfield, the Highlanders scored 35 points in the first half, another 35 in the second and six in overtime during a tough loss 82-76. Zyon Pullin had a nice line on 26 points and five assists in the defeat. 

Cal State Fullerton Titans 

Over on the CSU Fullerton side, they were 9-7 at the 16-game mark this year. The Titans managed a sketchy 3-4 run in the next seven games, falling to UC Irvine, UC Davis, Long Beach State and Cal State Northridge in that time. 

Matched up against Long Beach State on Thursday, the Titans were down by two points at the break. Cal State Fullerton didn’t end up getting any closer in a 70-67 loss. Max Jones managed 19 points in the defeat and Latrell Wrightsell had 18 points. 


I’m going to stick with CSU Fullerton. We should have an interesting game here, though. The Titans managed a 77-62 victory the last time these teams met up back on January 5 at UC Riverside Student Recreation Center. CSU Fullerton has been a mixed bag since then, and they’re just 3-3 in the last six outings. As for UC Riverside, they’re doing better at 6-2 in their last eight games. With the home-court advantage however, I think the Titans will power out the cover in a fairly close matchup.
