Titans look to stop high-powered Broncos

The Cal State Fullerton Titans lost a heartbreaker to the Denver Pioneers on Friday. Leading by 13 points midway through the second half, the Titans went ice cold shooting the ball, and went the final 9:15 without a field goal. They were still in the lead, however, with two minutes remaining when the Pioneers went on a 7-0 run to end the game and defeat the Titans. Austen Awosika led the way for CSUF with 18 points. Davon Clare scored 12 and Wayne Arnold chipped in with 11. The Titans shot 44% from the floor for the game, but only 20% from three-point range.

Awosika (16.1 points per game) and Arnold (14.9 points per game) are the only two Titans averaging in double digits for the season. Arnold is shooting 35% from three-point range and 92.9% from the foul line. CSUF is being outscored on average 68.0-62.4. They shoot just 40.2% from the floor and 26.9% from beyond the arc. Their opponents, on the other hand, shoot 45.3% from the floor and 30.5% from three-point range.

Broncos look for fifth straight win

The Santa Clara Broncos jumped out to a 13 point halftime lead against the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks and cruised to a 12 point victory on Friday. Trey Wertz led the Broncos in points (24), rebounds (five), and assists (five). DJ Mitchell contributed 20 points and Tahj Eaddy chipped in with 12. Santa Clara shot 55.4% from the floor and 54.5% from three-point range.

The Broncos, who average 81.9 points per game, have four players that average between 11.9 and 10.5 points per game. Wertz and Guglielmo Caruso average 11.9 points per game, while Mitchell and Eaddy average 10.6 and 10.5 points per game, respectively. For the season, the Broncos shoot 49.9% from the floor and 37.2% from three-point range.

Santa Clara is looking to win their fifth straight game after losing to Stanford 82-64 on November 16. All but one of their wins have been by double digits and they are outscoring their opponents by over 17 points per game.

The Santa Clara Broncos are playing extremely well right now. Their only loss of the season is to the 7-1 Stanford Cardinal. Their closest win was an eight-point win over Washington State. They are shooting nearly 50% from the floor they have a balanced offensive attack. The Cal State Fullerton Titans don't shoot the ball well band have struggled scoring points this season.
