A LOOK BACK AT THE 2015-16 SEASON
The Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team finished the 2015-16 season with an overall record of 3-27 while posting a 1-15 record in Big West play. The 2015-16 season was a huge learning year for the Titans as five freshmen saw a combined 3,374 minutes on the floor with four of them seeing over 500 minutes each. The Titans also didn't have any graduating seniors leaving them with a complete squad to come back and compete next season.
The Titans won their season opener for their first time in four years with the 84-69 victory over Portland State, also logging their first win in a home opener since the 2012-13 season.
The record book didn't stand a chance as multiple strong individual performances made their way into the books after this season, including Michelle Berry's standout freshman year and Samantha Logan solidifying her career after a strong junior season. Berry can now find herself in the record books in eight different categories, including single season rebounds (9th - 264), single-season double-doubles (12), career double-doubles (12), top single game performance (38 pts. on Nov. 13, 2015) and freshman records for games started (29), minutes (1,030), field goals attempted (445), and free throws attempted (129).
Logan has also worked her way up in the career records, climbing into second place all-time in both 3-point field goals made (649) and 3-point field goals attempted (694). The junior also ranks 4th all-time in 3-point percentage (.353), fifth in single-season 3-point field goals made with 67 in 2015-16 and sixth in single season 3-point field goals attempted with 200.

Freshman Michelle Berry was the lone representative for the Titans as she earned her first career All-Conference honors after a standout freshman campaign. Berry was one of five freshman named to the All-Freshman team while also earning an honorable mention after being one of the conference's top threats in both scoring and rebounding.
Berry ended the season averaging 14.5 points per game, just shy of the freshman school record and averaged 9.1 rebounds per game. The 6-2 freshman also caught the conference's attention by finishing out the regular season in the top 10 out of all Big West players in multiple categories, including: double-doubles (1st, 12), scoring (3rd- 14.5 ppg), rebounding (2nd – 9.1 rpg), offensive rebounds (8th – 2.0 rpg), defensive rebounds (1st – 7.1 rpg) and minutes played (2nd – 35.5 avg/g).
Berry is the first freshman to make the All-Freshman team since her teammate Samantha Logan earned the nod back in the 2013-14 season.
