Bill Fraser had incentive, but more importantly he had a plan.
The Long Beach City College basketball coach wanted to avenge his team's 32-point loss to El Camino College earlier this month.
He did that Saturday night, with a 60-58 upset over the Warriors at Long Beach. With the scored tied, 58-58, with three seconds left, Long Beach's Darren Rector heaved a length-of-the-court pass to Randy Wise. Wise's shot missed, but Demetrius Camper grabbed the rebound and put it in for the Long Beach win.
El Camino, which beat Long Beach 101-69 on Jan. 6, fell to 6-2 in South Coast Conference play and 22-3 overall. The Vikings improved to 3-5 and 15-11.
