Where in the world is Larry Anderson?? Anyone know? Forget the free throw line, Anderson and Phelps piling up 4 fouls in a minute and taking themselves out of the game, along with Gilling's donut caused this loss. This Beach team should beat every Big West team by 10 points a game - time to step it up.

I want to hear Monson take these guys to the shed. It is inexcusable for them to falter down the stretch like that at the line. Who the heck is UCR in comparison to Duke, KY or TX. Hell they dont even stack up to UWG and USU, good teams the beach have beaten. Come on Monson, this was inexcusable.

Yup...agree with all the comments about the absolutely atrocious free-throw shooting by LBSU last night. It is definitely inexcusable for a team that is attempting to separate itself from the BWC and make it to the "next level" as a top mid-major program. In fact, these may delusions of grandeur if this is indeed the case. The loss should serve as a wake-up call for the players, who still may have been thinking about the thrill of playing at places like Cameron and Rupp, to come back down to earth and focus on their reality -- the Big West Conference -- small programs, small arenas and all.

They also seem to be playing like a bit of a tired team after so many road games back East during the holidays. It isn't gonna get any easier at CSUF either - they could come home 0-2, which should be LBSU's ultimate wake-up to take care of business as the so-called elite team of this year's BWC.

Go Beach!
