The Long Beach State 49ers invade the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos in Big West college basketball action.

The Long Beach State 49ers look to extend their winning streak to three games after squeezing by UC Riverside 71-67 in overtime.

Long Beach State 7thin the conference standings and could move up a spot or two if the team managed to sweep their three remaining games.

Deishuan Booker topped the 49ers with 18 points, five pulls and three assists with Jordan Roberts adding 18 points and seven rebounds.

Bryan Alberts gave Long Beach State 16 points and five boards followed by Mason Riggins and KJ Byers with a combined 16 points and 12 rebounds.

The Santa Barbara Gauchos are taking aim at a three game winning streak after upending Cal State Fullerton 82-67 on Saturday.

Santa Barbara has followed a three game skid with two wins to climb to third in the conference standings with three games to play.

The Gauchos twosome of Jaquori McLaughlin and Amadou Sow led the way with 16 points each with six boards and eight helpers.

Max Heidegger gave UCSB 19 points followed by Devearl Ramsey with 13 points and six rebounds and Ar’mond Davis with six points and seven boards.

Long Beach State 49ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Long Beach State 49ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big West.

UCSB Gauchos are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and UCSB Gauchos are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

Under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in UC Santa Barbara and Long Beach State 49ers are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings in UC Santa Barbara.

If UCSB plays as they have the past two times out the 49ers are in trouble. I'm taking the points but I'm not betting this...

Pick:
Long Beach State +8

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
