Records: Long Beach State (22-7, 15-0); Cal State Fullerton (20-8, 11-4)
Location: Titan Gym in Fullerton
Time: 4 p.m. PST
TV: Fox Sports West, with Ron Pitts on play-by-play, Michael Cage as the analyst, and Crystina Poncher reporting from the sidelines.
Pleading the Fifth: With a win, the 49ers will complete the fifth undefeated conference season in school history, at 16-0. The last time Long Beach State finished the conference season undefeated was the 1973-1974 campaign.
Series History: Long Beach State leads the all-time series with Fullerton 60-42, and has won the last two matchups. The 49ers beat the Titans 75-61 at the Walter Pyramid on January 28.
Seeding: Fullerton is currently tied with UCSB at 11-4 for second place in the conference, and holds the tiebreaker. But the Gauchos host eighth-place UC Davis so the Titans need a home win to clinch the No. 2 seed in the Big West Tournament.
Also Undefeated: Fullerton is 7-0 at home in Big West play this season, and 12-1 at home overall on the season. The last time Fullerton went undefeated at home in conference play was in the 1982-1983 season.
