Long Beach State vs. Pacific results: 49ers edge out Tigers in 67-63 win

USA TODAY Sports

The Long Beach State 49ers improved to 5-7 on the season after just edging out the Pacific Tigers at home on Saturday.

After a recent rough patch, the Long Beach State 49ers earned a much needed victory on Saturday, defeating the Pacific Tigers at home by the score of 67-63. Long Beach State entered the game with just one win in their past five games.

Four players scored in double figures for the 49ers, who made 48% of their shots from the floor as a team. James Ennis and Mike Caffey each scored 19 points for Long Beach. Caffey did his work from the floor while Ennis did his at the line, sinking in nine free throws.

Despite their strong shooting and defense, Long Beach State couldn't keep the Tigers off the boards and were out-rebounded 39-28 while allowing 15 offensive rebounds to Pacific. Trevin Harris led the way for the Tigers with 13 points and 6 rebounds.

The 49ers improved to 5-7 on the season with the win and will next visit the Cal Poly Mustangs, who defeated UCLA earlier in the season.
