Gamethread: Long Beach State visits McKale with salty wounds

New, comments

The Long Beach State 49ers visit the Arizona Wildcats with two tough losses on their minds.

Kelvin Kuo-US PRESSWIRE

Having just finished watching the North Carolina Tar Heels run Mississippi State into the ground, the success that Long Beach State had against Roy Williams' team seems all the more legitimate. Were it not for a 14-2 spurt in the 49ers last game, UNC's win over LBSU would've been a nail biter.

That's a big what-if, but we'll go with it anyway. The Arizona Wildcats will be tested tonight, and after a romp of UTEP last time out, another double-digit victory would be a sign that Sean Miller's team is on the right track.

If it's close, well, that's just Division I basketball.
