Long Beach State vs. Fresno State recap: The Beach polluted by Bulldogs, lose 64-59

Kelvin Kuo-US PRESSWIRE

Fresno State's 72 percent free-throw shooting helped to push the Bulldogs past Long Beach State.

Fresno State's Tyler Johnson had 19 points in Monday night's game against Long Beach State. Why is that significant? He's the only player for Fresno State to have more than nine points in the game, and somehow the Bulldogs managed to find a way to win the game, 64-59.

Turnovers stopped Long Beach each time the team began to build momentum. Mike Caffey lead the team with six turnovers, followed by forward James Ennis with three. Ennis' mistakes were overshadowed his double-double, posting 23 points and 13 rebounds. Caffey wasn't as lucky as Ennis. He had only nine points, shooting 3-for-11 from the field and 3-for-10 at the free throw line.

The highest scorer for Fresno State wasn't the 19 points contributed by Johnson. It was the 24 points put up by the Bulldogs' bench. In comparison, Long Beach's bench contributed only 16 points. As a team, Fresno State hit 13-18 (72.2 percent) free throws; LBSU made 18 of 33 (54.5 percent).
