San Luis Obispo, Calif. -
Cal State Fullerton plays its final road game of the 2009-10 men's basketball season Wednesday night on FSN Net TV at Cal Poly SLO and the outcome will be critical in determining final Big West standings and tournament seedings.
The Titans are in third place at 7-6, one game ahead of the Mustangs, who are 6-7 and tied for fifth place. The third and fourth-place teams in the final standings earn first-round byes in the post-season tournament at Anaheim beginning March 10.
The Titans have a few streaks going for them. They are 5-0 on live TV this year, they have won their last four road games and they have won their last three games in Mott Gym in San Luis Obispo. Fullerton beat the Mustangs, 68-54, on Jan. 14 when Cal Poly's star Lorenzo Keeler had a cold shooting night.
Fullerton is idle on Saturday and then hosts Pacific (ESPNU National TV) at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, and UC Davis, on Saturday March 6 to complete the regular season.
