In the finale of a two-month project that took her from the gallery to the streets and then to the sea, a Cal State Long Beach graduate student on Monday pedaled a swan boat from San Pedro to Long Beach, the last of eight human-powered means she employed to get to class. Sierra Brown, 28, launched the performance art project Oct. 1 with a 12-mile swim through Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors, crossing four ship channels in the process.

Long Beach State traveled here locked and loaded for a shootout with high-flying Tennessee, and the game lived up to its billing, with no shortage of offense between two of the nation's highest-scoring teams. Too bad the 49ers forgot to pack their defense. No. 5-seeded Tennessee benefited from a bevy of wide-open outside shots and uncontested layups Friday in a first-round NCAA South Regional game at Nationwide Arena and dismantled 12th-seeded Long Beach State, 121-86.

Long Beach State and Tennessee are playing basketball here today in the first round of the South Regional at Nationwide Arena, but they are expecting a track meet. So are oddsmakers, who have placed the over/under line -- the total number of points expected in the game -- at 170. That's 16 points higher than any other first-round game this year. The 35-second clock has no place in this game, which pits teams that aren't afraid to shoot -- quickly. Tennessee is averaging 79.

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.
