Long Beach State Vs. UC Davis Score: Eugene Phelps Can't Miss, 49ers Lead 41-21 At Halftime

During the regular season, the Long Beach State 49ers had no problem with the UC Davis Aggies, beating them twice by an average margin of victory of 24 points. On Thursday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, it looked like more of the same, as the 49ers took a 41-21 lead into halftime in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Big West Tournament.

Phelps, one of four seniors on this experienced 49ers squad, now has 1,012 points and counting in his college career, the 22nd player in school history to surpass the 1,000-point barrier.
