LONG BEACH - The 2012-13 Long Beach State women's basketball team looks to be a strong contender for the conference title as it returns eight letterwinners and four starters from last year's squad that advanced to the Big West championship game.
In 2011-12, a young 49er squad became the first team in Big West history to knock off a No. 1 and No. 2 seed in conference tournament action. LBSU defeated No. 2 Cal State Northridge and No. 1 Cal Poly to reach the championship game for the first time since 2001. Long Beach State finished the campaign with a 14-18 overall record.
Sophomore Alex Sanchez is the 49ers' top returning scorer after averaging 9.2 points per game last year. Sanchez was an honorable mention All-Big West selection and was also named to the Big West's All-Freshman Team.
LBSU also returns Big West All-Tournament Team picks Devin Hudson (6.0 ppg, 5.9 rpg) and Hallie Meneses (6.0 ppg, 3.3 apg). In addition, Long Beach State welcomes back three redshirts, sophomores Ella Clark and Sendy Valles, and senior Sarah Lottinville.
