Projection: need to automatically qualify

CS Fullerton's path to the Big Dance is pretty straightforward: snag the Big West's automatic bid or bust. A resume that leans heavily on losses to higher-ranked teams like San Diego State, UCF, and UC Irvine, and sprinkled with scattered victories over middling conference foes, doesn't stack up favorably to the at-large bid criteria. The Titans have shown sparks of potential with wins against Hawaii and a road win at Long Beach State, hinting they could stir trouble in the conference tournament. But losses to UC San Diego and a stumble at home against CS Northridge hamper their case. Strength lies in their defense, but with an offense that's struggled against stiffer competition, they've carved themselves a very narrow path that leads exclusively through the conference tournament title.
