Cal State Fullerton's Titan Gym has served as the home court advantage for the Titans' men's and women's basketball programs since the 1964-65 season. Historically one of the most difficult places to play because of the proximity of the bleachers to the playing floor, Titan Gym has been upgraded over the past few years to make it more fan friendly while still intimate.
Chairback seats have replaced most of the bleachers, portable basket supports have replaced fold-down backboards, new paint and championship banners now adorn the walls, and the floor was redesigned and resurfaced during the summer of 2013.
Attendance Record (MBB):
5,015 vs. UNLV (Feb. 24, 1983)
Attendance Record (WBB):
4,032 vs. Fresno State (March 2, 1991)
The 2012-13 seasons introduced a video board at the east end and scoreboards at each end that feature in-game individual player statistical updates.
Completed for the 2005-06 season was an elaborate addition to the building which provided balcony seating on the south side. Capacity was increased back to around 4,000 and a much needed practice floor was created behind the upstairs bleachers. A similar practice area for basketball or volleyball was created from the previous wrestling workout room behind the northern upstairs bleachers.
The gymnasium is part of an expanded physical education/kinesiology complex, featuring numerous classrooms and physical testing laboratories.
The Titans' women's basketball program was almost unbeatable at home in the early going, posting a 36-1 overall record within the friendly confines from 1969-77 (with the results of the 1969-70 and 1971-72 seasons unknown) under the guidance of Hall of Fame Head Coach Billie Moore - who won eight consecutive conference titles with the Titans during her tenure.
Fullerton posted its best overall home mark during the 1990-91 home season, going 12-1 at Titan Gym en route to its second-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament, reaching the second round after a stirring home victory over Louisiana Tech in the opening round.
The men's team went 13-1 at home in the 2011-12 season including a perfect 8-0 mark in Big West Conference play.
The record crowd for Titan Gym is 5,105 on Feb. 24, 1983, when the Titans' men's basketball team defeated unbeaten and No. 1-ranked UNLV with extra chairs behind the baskets and standing room everywhere. The record for a home women's contest is 4,032 against Fresno State on March 2, 1991 (doubleheader with men's team), while a Cal State Fullerton-USC women's basketball contest drew 2,096 on Feb. 1, 1983.
