Fairfax High School guard Lorne Currie has signed a National Letter of Intent during the late signing period and will join Long Beach State for the 2015-16 season announced men's basketball head coach Dan Monson on Tuesday.
Senior Mike Caffey piled up another award in his distinguished career, as the guard as one of 10 players selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 9 team.
Senior Mike Caffey scored 27 points, and senior David Samuels finished the season with a fourth consecutive double-double, scoring 19 points with 10 rebounds, but the pair didn't get enough help as Long Beach State ultimately lost 79-72 in the quarterfinals of the Big West Tournament to Hawai'i.
Long Beach State has reached at least the semifinals of the Big West Tournament in each of the last six seasons, and their journey to reach the NCAA Tournament begins Thursday against Hawai'i in the Honda Center. The game is scheduled to tip off at 2:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Prime Ticket.
