FULLERTON, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton men's basketball has accepted an invitation to play in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT), marking the program's third straight postseason berth. Head coach Dedrique Taylor's squad will host the Riley Wallace Classic Game on Thursday at 7 p.m. PT against CSU Bakersfield as the first round of the CIT.
The Titans own an overall record of 16-17 on the year and went 10-6 in Big West action to take third place in the league standings. The team then advanced to the final of the Big West Tournament final for the second straight year but fell to UC Irvine.
"We wanted to give our fans at least one more chance to watch this team at Titan Gym," athletics director Jim Donovan said. "Especially our seniors that have done so much for the program. But, this is also great experience for the entire team and only helps the program going forward."
Fullerton had the No. 17 ranked non-conference strength of schedule in the country this year as the team. The Titans played just four non-conference home games and squared off against five teams that qualified for the NCAA Tournament in UC Irvine, Arizona State, Saint Mary's (CA), UCF and Washington.
This is the ninth time overall and third straight postseason berth for the Titans.
Seniors Kyle Allman, Jr. and Khalil Ahmad are the most prolific scoring duo in program history. Both of them are in the top five in career points as Ahmad is third with 1,748 points while Allman is fifth at 1,667 points. Junior forward Jackson Rowe just became the 26th Titan to score 1,000 career points as he now has 1,009 during his tenure at CSF.
As a thank you to loyal Titan fans, ALL CSUF students and season ticket holders will receive FREE entry to the game.
