Long Beach State has come a long way to make to the NCAA tournament, emerging from the depths of consecutive seasons in 2002-03 and 2003-04 when the 49ers went a combined 11-43 to a 24-7 record this season. Nobody knows better than Louis Darby, a fifth-year senior who has been through it all. Darby, a reserve forward, just shakes his head and smiles when he thinks about going to Columbus, Ohio, to face Tennessee in the first round Friday.

Long Beach State's appearance in the NCAA tournament will not have any bearing on whether Coach Larry Reynolds gets a contract extension, 49ers Athletic Director Vic Cegles said Tuesday. "As I have said from day one, we are going to evaluate the entire program at the end of the season," Cegles said. "That hasn't changed." Reynolds is in the final year of a five-year contract. The 49ers were 11-43 in his first two seasons but have gone 42-19 the last two seasons.

At some point, Loyola Marymount basketball Coach Rodney Tention will probably have a worse week as a coach than he has had this week. Then again, maybe not. The capper came Friday night at Gersten Pavilion, where Long Beach State guard Aaron Nixon broke the Lions' hearts with a three-point basket from just inside half court as time expired to give the 49ers a 66-65 victory over the Lions. And that was hardly the worst thing that happened to the Lions this week.
