Long Beach State struggled to contain Negus Webster-Chan, who finished with a career high 20 points in a 78-59 loss at Hawai'i. Branford Jones led the Beach with 12 points, one of three 49ers in double-figures.
Long Beach State will try to stop a four-game conference slide Thursday as the 49ers travel to Hawai'i to face the Rainbow Warriors.
Long Beach State trailed by as many as 18 in the second half and made a scramble late to make things interesting, but the result was too little too late as the 49ers fell to UC Davis 65-58 Thursday night.
In Long Beach State's only game this week, the 49ers have a great opportunity, hosting league-leading UC Davis at 7 p.m. on ESPN3. The Beach lost in overtime on the road at Davis, and will look to rebound from a three-game losing streak in their return to the Walter Pyramid.
