Fullerton, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton will travel to Wright State in Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday, Feb. 17 for an ESPNU Bracket Buster men's basketball game. The game will be telecast on ESPNU at a time to be announced.
"We are really excited to go play at Wright State," said Titans' Head Coach Bob Burton. "We look forward to the opportunity to have some national television exposure this season and hope we will do a great job of representing Cal State Fullerton and the Big West Conference.
"We know it will be a difficult place to play. We're just proud of our team for putting itself in a position to get a televised game."
The Raiders take a 14-8 record into a game tonight at Wisconsin-Green Bay. They are 7-2 in the Horizon League and trail only nationally ranked Butler in the league standings. They feature 5-foot-11 senior guard Dashaun Wood, who averages 19 points and 3.6 assists per game.
The other seven Big West Conference schools will learn their Bracket Buster schedules tomorrow. Cal Poly, Cal State Northrige, Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara will be home teams while UCI, UCR and Pacific will join the Titans as road teams.
As part of the format, Wright State must play a non-conference game next Fall in Titan Gym.
