Wednesday NCAA basketball: Pittsburgh on upset alert vs. Long Beach State

November 16, 2011

It’s a light night of Top 25 action in college basketball on Wednesday night, but don’t be surprised if Long Beach State goes to No. 9 Pittsburgh and plays the Panthers tough and possibly even pulls off the upset.

LBSU was the Big West regular-season champion last year (going 14-2 in conference play) and a big favorite to win the conference tournament and head to the Big Dance, but the 49ers lost in the Big West Tournament final and were relegated to the NIT, where they lost to Washington State in the first round.

To open this season, Casper Ware scored 20 points and Larry Anderson added 16 points and dished out seven assists as Long Beach State beat Idaho 69-61. Ware is the reigning Big West Player of the Year and a preseason candidate for the John R. Wooden Award as the top player in the country. The senior guard scored nine points and was a defensive force over the final seven minutes against the Vandals, who had taken a 49-47 lead with a little over 10 minutes left. Coach Dan Monson returns four starters from last year’s 22-11 team. Ware, Larry Anderson and T.J. Robinson were all named preseason all-league selections for the 49ers, who are overwhelming Big West favorites again this year.todays ncaa basketball possible upsets

Pittsburgh has played twice, opening with an easy 89-56 win over Albany and then struggling some Sunday in an 86-78 win over Rider. Despite suiting up only nine players and playing just seven, Rider took advantage of uncharacteristically shoddy Pitt defense to take a six-point lead in the second half before the Panthers finally got it together. Ashton Gibbs led Pitt with 24 points and six 3-pointers, Nasir Robinson added 22 points and six rebounds for Pitt, which ended the game on a 16-5 run to win its 58th straight nonconference game at the Petersen Events Center.

Pitt has won 107 of its last 108 home games against regular season non-conference opponents and is 86-1 vs. non-conference opponents at the Petersen Events Center. At the Petersen Events Center, Pitt has never lost a November (41-0) or December (40-0) non-conference game.

Pitt and Long Beach State meet for the first time in men’s basketball. Pitt is 1-1 all-time vs. Big West Conference teams: Cal State Fullerton 1-0; Pacific 0-1.
