A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: UC San Diego is stumbling into the game with the 50th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.9 on average. Cal State Fullerton has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 42.20% percent of their shots, which is the 50th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball.
