Last season, the Titans finished with a disappointing 10-16 record, winning only five games in Big West play.

Presently, under first-year coach Denise Curry, the Titans are 8-11 overall, 5-3 in the Big West and tied for second in their conference with UC Irvine.

"I think our coach makes a big difference," junior Andrea Thieme said. "And we are coming together as a team."

The Titans were scheduled to play UCI on Friday, but because of the rain, the game was rescheduled for tonight.

If the Titans win, they will hold second place by themselves, trailing to UCSB.

"We know this is a big game," Sigg said. "But we're not doing anything different just because they are UCI."

Over the break, the women finished 6-5 with seven games left before the Big West Tournament begins in Reno.

It has been two years since the Titans have made an appearance in Reno.

The Titans have won three of their past four games, losing only to the first place Gauchos on Jan. 30 at UCSB.

The Titans finished the first half against the Gauchos, 19-47, but came back to score a season-high 59 points in the second half to finish 78-101.

Thieme and Sigg combined for 50 points in the second half of the game at Santa Barbara. Sigg finished the evening with a career-high 31 points, while Thieme added a season-high 24 points.

On Feb. 1, the Titans rallied to defeat Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, 72-64.

Sophomore Nieshia Cleveland led the Titan offense with 15 points and six rebounds, while Sigg added 14 points and a career-high 10 rebounds. Sophomore Erin Whiteside also contributed to the Titans' game by grabbing 16 rebounds.
