Cal State Fullerton continued to build on its reputation as one of college baseball's hottest teams Tuesday night against Pepperdine.

It was Fullerton's sixth consecutive victory and its 20th in 21 games. Fullerton (34-11) is 26-3 since losing eight of its first 16.

The NCAA snubbed three-time College World Series champion Cal State Fullerton in its bid to host one of the eight super-regionals, awarding the best-of-three playoff series to Ohio State on Monday. Dick Rockwell, chairman of the Division I baseball committee, said Ohio State was selected because of greater revenue potential at its 4,450-seat Davis Stadium. "That was the overriding factor," he said. Fullerton was the only one of eight nationally seeded teams not chosen to host.

Cal State Fullerton had hopes of wrapping up a spot in the NCAA men's soccer playoffs Sunday-- even if it meant having to beat the nation's top-ranked team. But San Jose State overcame a 2-1 Titan halftime lead and went on to win the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament championship and the conference's automatic NCAA berth with a 3-2 victory in Titan Stadium. The loss ended an eight-match Fullerton winning streak and was the Titans' first at home this season in 11 games.

It was Cal State Fullerton's sixth consecutive victory over three seasons against UC Irvine--but it didn't come easy Saturday night at Titan Gym. The Titans gave up a school-record 16 three-point baskets and had to struggle down to the end for a 104-97 victory against an Irvine team that lost its 11th consecutive game. Irvine Coach Pat Douglass was quick to point out that his team scored more points than it had in its last two games combined.

Freshman Brandon Campbell had been expected to provide a boost to the Cal State Fullerton track team this season. Coach John Elders just didn't realize how big an asset Campbell would turn out to be. "Brandon does so many things well that it becomes difficult for us to decide which events he should focus on," Elders said. "He's an incredible athlete." Campbell set a school record with a time of 47.55 seconds in the 400 meters at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays.
