Long Beach State Vs. UC Irvine Final Score: T.J. Robinson, Casper Ware Lead 49ers To 77-50 Senior Night Win

One of the most celebrated senior classes in Long Beach State 49ers history went out in style on Senior Night Wednesday night, easily defeating the UC Irvine Anteaters 77-50 at Walter Pyramid. Long Beach State (22-7, 15-0 in the Big West Conference) led by as many as 31 points in the win, their 23rd consecutive Big West regular season victory and their 22nd straight home triumph.

Senior guard Casper Ware, the all-time leading assist man in Long Beach State history, had 16 points, four assists, and four steals on the night. Ware is also second all-time in school history with 202 steals.

Senior guard Larry Anderson, the all-time leader in steals in school history, added three steals (giving him 204 in his career) to go along with his seven rebounds, five points, and four assists.

Senior forward Eugene Phelps had 11 points and four rebounds on the night for Long Beach State, who shot 47.6% from the field on the night.

Mike Best scored 11 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead UC Irvine (11-18, 6-9), who shot just 31.7% on the night and committed 17 turnovers. Center Adam Folker added six points and nine rebounds for the Anteaters, who have lost three straight games to the 49ers.
