The game comes on the 40th anniversary of Cal State Fullerton's second - and most recent - victory in the NCAA tournament, a 75-72 upset of the University of San Francisco in a West Region semifinal on March 16, 1978. "I tried to lay there for a second to assess myself".

Call State Fullerton: The Titans were just happy to be in the NCAA Tournament, and they should have been because it is a rare feat for the program.

Purdue didn't win the Big Ten regular season or the conference tournament title, but the Boilermakers ended up with the best overall seeding in the league.

"It's been a while since we played a game", Edwards said.

The Titans were seeded fourth in the Big West Tournament and defeated fifth-seeded Long Beach State, top-seeded UC Davis and third-seeded UC Irvine for the championship.

We figure we're only getting started. But then they got us on our heels a little bit defensively. It just flipped on us in the second half. "If we'll do our job and stick to our rules and start off in a good defensive position, normally good things happen".

"He's been doing that for us all year", Vince Edwards said.

"These guys will always be honored in the history of Cal State Fullerton basketball", Taylor said.

"It doesn't matter what you're up", Vince Edwards said.

After serving more as a complementary player last season, Barford has been a star this year for the Razorbacks, who got in with a No. 8 seed last season and defeated Seton Hall before bowing to North Carolina. This will be the first meeting ever between the schools, and the first Big West opponent Purdue has faced in almost a decade.

Cal State Fullerton head coach Dedrique Taylor gestures on the sidelines during the second half of a first round game in the NCAA college basketball tournament against Purdue, Friday, March 16, 2018, in Detroit. The Titans could score only one more field goal before intermission, and 3-pointers by Carsen Edwards and Vincent Edwards sent Purdue into the locker room with a 30-21 lead.
