Game of the Week: LBSU men’s basketball vs. UC Irvine


After having their season paused three times over the last three months, there weren’t any Long Beach State men’s basketball Senior Night activities over the weekend in the last games of the regular season at Walter Pyramid. The sour mood perpetuated and the Beach proceeded to lose to UC Irvine 73-58 without the services of top shooting guard Michael Carter III, who was dismissed from the program hours before tip-off.

LBSU starts the Big West Conference Tournament this week.
