GOLETA — They stood and shrieked outside the Cal State Fullerton locker room for 30 minutes after the game, and this was UC Santa Barbara's Thunderdome living up to its reputation.
Loud and raucous.
But these were Titan fans celebrating Fullerton's dramatic, 72-68 Big West Conference victory, a game that snapped the Titans' eight-game losing streak at the Thunderdome.
Fullerton (9-5, 3-3) tuned out a raucous Thunderdome crowd of 6,000 to make 11 of 14 overtime free throws against a backdrop of a half-dozen spinning pinwheels.
Titan center Sean Williams had a career-high 21 points and point guard Aaron Sunderland had a career-high eight rebounds as Fullerton won its fifth consecutive overtime game, covering the past three seasons.
