Fullerton Hopes to Get Its Streak Started Again
Cal State Fullerton men’s basketball team plays host to the University of New Orleans tonight in a nonconference game at 7:30.
Until last week, these were teams headed in opposite directions.
The Titans (5-2) had won four consecutive games before losing to Weber State, 88-77, Thursday. New Orleans (3-3) had lost three straight before defeating Oklahoma State, 55-54, Thursday.
Fullerton will have a distinct height advantage as New Orleans starts only one player taller than 6 feet 4 inches. Fullerton starts Cedric Ceballos (6-7), Derek Jones (6-7) and either John Sykes (6-8) or David Moody (6-8) on the front line.
Ceballos is the Titans’ leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 25.0 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Jones is second at 14.6 points and 7.4 rebounds.
New Orleans is led by 6-4 center William Moore, who is averaging 13.7 points a game. Forward Willie Richardson, who is 6-3, is the team’s leading rebounder, averaging 6.8 per game.
