RIGHT AWAY
• Long Beach State is back in the Walter Pyramid on Sunday, hosting Stanford at 2 p.m. The game marks the first time the Beach has hosted a Pac-12 opponent since a 72-71 win over USC on December 19, 2013.

• Stanford leads the all-time series 3-0. The teams haven’t played since 2001, part of a home-and-home series in which the Cardinal won both games. The only other meeting between the programs came in 1988, when Stanford grabbed an 80-77 win in Long Beach State’s second NIT appearance.

Deishuan Booker had outstanding passing numbers at the Advocare Invitational, tying the tournament record with 27 assists over three games. Booker became just the sixth player in the nation this season to record two straight double-doubles with assists in the process, finishing with 12 each against Oregon State and Nebraska.

• Booker is the first player since Long Beach State great Ed Ratleff to have 11 or more assists in back-to-back games, and is the first player since Billy Walker to have two games with 12 or more assists in his career. Walker is second behind Casper Ware in career assists at the Beach, graduating in 1988.

• Senior Gabe Levin continued his habit of performing at his best against ranked opponents. Levin picked up his first double-double of the year at No. 23 West Virginia, scoring 23 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, and then had a monster game against Nebraska, finishing with 22 points and a career high 16 rebounds. Levin has eight double-doubles in his career, and is averaging 13.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game this season, leading the team in both.

• Long Beach State’s win over Oregon State was the program’s 10th win over a major conference opponent in Dan Monson’s tenure, and marked the second time in three tries that the Beach has defeated the Beavers.
