JERSEY CITY, NJ - Cal State Fullerton dominated Saint Peter's 69-45 to close out their east coast road trip. It is their fourth straight victory marking their longest win streak since 2014 and the 6-4 start to the season is the best since the 1990-91 season.
"Definitely a nice way to end our trip," said coach Harada. "I think our team was focused on playing well and giving us the opportunity to keep our winning streak alive. We came out a little flat, but picked up our energy as the game went on and I was pleased we were able to sustain that throughout the game. Hats off to this team for their effort and focus to get two big road wins. It's nice to see their hard work pay off."
Jade Vega continued her outstanding homecoming week with a game-high 14 points including 6-8 from the strike. Daeja Smith got things back on track with 13 points and 16 rebounds to go along with three blocks. Amiee Book was just shy of a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds. Raina Perez was the fourth and final Titan in double-figures with 11 points to go along with a game-high seven assists and three steals.

Saint Peter's grabbed the early lead, but only led for the first minute of the game and the rest of it was all Fullerton. Even with a slow start offensively, the Titans led 10-4 after the first and only increased their lead as the game progressed.
After shooting 42.9% in the second quarter, Fullerton was comfortably up double-digits at the break and would reach their largest lead, 28 points, with 2:13 left in regulation.
Just for safe measure, the Titans shot a blistering 61.5% in the fourth quarter as they closed out their biggest win of the season. They will have a week off from game action as they return home to host Antelope Valley next Friday.
