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.
Long Beach State's Mike Caffey was selected First-Team All-Big West for the third time, capping off a tremendous career with the 49ers as the senior heads into his final postseason. Fellow senior David Samuels also garnered an honorable mention selection.
