The CSU Fullerton Titans already beat Long Beach State on the road a few weeks ago, and they enter this contest allowing just 39.2 percent shooting in their last five games while winning by an average of 12.2 points. The Long Beach State 49ers are losing by an average of 11.1 points on the road this season while shooting just 40.1 percent from the field. Long Beach State is pretty much useless when it can't make shots, as the 49ers are far from the best defensive team in the world. CSU Fullerton should have its way defensively in this contest and the Titans should cruise to a comfortable home victory.
