49ers rally, but fall short in overtime

It is somewhat of a rarity in basketball in that both teams play poorly enough - in regulation and overtime - to lose. Full Story

What a really bad loss. Boy were their weaknesses exposed. Dissappointment is an understatement. This core group plays hard, they are athletic, but a really good team (and after 2 years being together we all expected this to be a really good team) should not struggle at home like this against an average WCC team. The 49ers are a just a bad half-court team period, and that is not a good sign at all. They simply are not a good shooting basketball team. Once they made a substitution, the whole thing fell apart. I would seriously consider bringing Plater off the bench just to get a starting five that can learn to shoot and not be so absorbed on screening for Plater all over the place from the get go. After 6 games, this is another 16-14 team at best. They only lost Gilling, and didn't improve the roster one bit, yuk. Monson has not yet shown he can actually improve players after they enter the program.

How can they win two games in the Virgin Islands and then come home and lose to a school like LMU. This was a bad loss. No post presence or bench may be the doom of this team. I hope I'm wrong!!!

I am very disappointed in this team. They struggle with important rebounds and giving up easy shots. Bench seems weak with regards to providing a spark or boost in any way. I was expecting so much more from this team in 2010. What is really sad is that the visiting crowd always seems to have more energy than we do (San Diego and Loyola), LB fans and most especially the student body seem lame. Where are all the loud and crazy students? The pyramid is not a good college basketball atmosphere in general in my opinion.
