2017-18 was one of the best seasons in program history, as the Titans racked up 20 wins for just the seventh time in school history and made their third trip to the Big Dance. Fullerton has qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2018, 2008 and 1978. The 20 victories were the most since the Titans captured 21 wins during the 2011-12 campaign. Taylor and his staff return four starters from last year's squad including first-team All-Big West honoree Kyle Allman, Jr., second-team All-Big West honoree Khalil Ahmad and All-Big West honorable mention Jackson Rowe.
