Kwame Vaughn's 22 points weren't enough to lead the Titans to their first road win of the season vs. Eastern Washington.
Cal State Fullerton got great production from its senior guards Kwame Vaughn and D.J. Seeley, but a big second half from Eastern Washington sealed the Titans' fate as they fell on the road, 79-75, on Friday night.
Vaughn led the Fullerton in scoring with 22 points, and Seeley had an excellent all-around game, adding 21 points, six rebounds, five steals and two assists 8-of-16 shooting and 3-of-7 from the three-point line. The Titans led 46-39 at the half, but were outscored 40-29 in the second and couldn't stave off a late run from the Eagles.
It was Aussie Freshman Venky Jois that led the Eagles with 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting. The 6'7 forward added 13 rebounds to help put the game away for Eastern Washington. The Eagles won the battle of the boards by a margin of 40-33, and that made all the difference in the narrow Titans' loss.
The Titans move to 3-3 on the season with the loss, while Eastern Washington improved to 2-5. Fullerton will remain in the Pacific Northwest to take on the Washington Huskies in Seattle on Dec. 2.
