FULLERTON, CA -- - The 2004-05 Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team experienced its fair share of ups and downs during its most recent campaign, finishing the year with an 8-20 overall record and a 6-12 mark in the Big West Conference.
The season was capped by the Titans' fifth consecutive berth in the Big West Conference Tournament, earning the No. 8 seed, before falling to fifth-seeded UC Riverside in the first round to close out the season.
Out of the conference tournament picture entering the final weekend of the regular season, the Titans rallied for the tournament's final berth, winning their final three regular season contests to carry some momentum into the postseason.
Matched-up against the Highlanders in the first round for the second consecutive season, the Titans could not duplicate their first round success from 2003-04 (a 71-56 victory over UCR) as the offense shot only 24 percent from the field in the 63-37 loss.
A pair of Titans earned recognition from the league's coaches and their peers following the end of the regular season as sophomore Charlee Underwood was named to the All-Big West Conference Honorable Mention squad and junior Amber Pruitt was named the Big West "Sixth Woman of the Year."
Underwood led the team in scoring at 11.8 ppg (which was also good for 13th in the league) and finished second on the team with 5.3 rpg and 12 blocks.
Pruitt, who was one of three Titans to appear in all 28 games, averaged 10.2 ppg and 5.1 rpg while finishing 10th in the league with a .756 free throw percentage.
