Long Beach Women Face Santa Barbara; USC, UCLA Play Pac-10 Games at Home
The Cal State Long Beach women’s basketball team, having dropped from fourth to sixth in the Associated Press poll after losing Saturday at Hawaii, will play UC Santa Barbara in a Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. game tonight at 7:30 in the University Gym.
That’s not good news for the Gauchos, who were embarrassed on their own floor by Long Beach last month, 105-25. This will be the first home game for the 49ers, 20-2 overall and 10-1 in conference play, since Jan. 26 and their only break from the road in a seven-game stretch.
Santa Barbara, 4-16 and 1-11, is in last place in the PCAA, and has not beaten Long Beach in 26 tries.
USC, meanwhile, will play host to Arizona State in a Pacific 10 Conference game at 5:45 p.m. at the Sports Arena. The Trojans, winners of two straight and 9 of 11, are 15-6 and 9-2. The Sun Devils are 9-11 and 3-8.
UCLA, 14-7 and 7-4, will go for its fourth consecutive victory in a game against Arizona, 9-12 and 3-8, at 5:45 at Pauley Pavilion. When the teams met earlier this season at Tucson, the Bruins held on to win, 66-65.
