The Long Beach State women's basketball team returns seven letterwinners and four starters from last year's squad that made the program's first postseason tournament appearance in 13 years.

The 49ers, who finished the season at 16-16, earned an at-large bid to the 2013 WNIT. They also tied for fifth in the Big West with a conference record of 9-9.

LBSU welcomes back its leading scorer, Alex Sanchez. The junior guard averaged 10.6 points and a team-best 4.1 assists per game last season. Junior center Devin Hudson, who totaled a team-high nine double-doubles, also returns after registering 9.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per outing. Both Sanchez and Hudson received All-Big West honorable mention recognition.
