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.

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.
