Long Beach State freshman guard Mike Caffey knows his place: the bed nearest the door. The 49ers are in Portland, Ore., for their NCAA tournament opener Thursday against New Mexico, so Caffey gets another chance to room with senior guard Casper Ware. And Ware gets another chance to play Yoda in basketball sneakers. "I make him sleep in the bed closest to the door," Ware said. "If someone knocks, he's the one who has to get up. " Eventually, Ware will pass the torch to Caffey, who will take over as Long Beach's court general next season.

These are days that can add a little stress on a friendship. Long Beach State Coach Dan Monson was still giddy from winning the Big West Conference tournament Saturday when a text message arrived from his buddy, New Mexico Coach Steve Alford. Both left the cornfields for greener pastures. "He sent me a text Saturday, 'saw your score, congratulations, praying we don't draw you,' " Monson said. There's that old saying that every prayer gets answered … but sometimes the answer is "no. " Long Beach and New Mexico converge on Portland on Thursday in a NCAA West Regional game.

Long Beach State got along fine playing its first game without senior guard Larry Anderson's 6-foot-5 frame, 14 points per game, defensive skills and leadership. In terms of a test, though, this was only a pop quiz. Top-seeded Long Beach, as expected, cruised past UC Davis, 80-46, in the first round of the Big West tournament Thursday at Honda Center Anderson sat out the game and is presumed out for the weekend after spraining his right knee in last weekend's loss to Cal State Fullerton.

Long Beach State's ride to this year's NCAA tournament hit a bump last weekend when star guard Larry Anderson sprained his knee in the 49ers' loss to Cal State Fullerton. It wrecked Long Beach's chances for a perfect 16-0 finish in league, all but rendered Anderson unavailable for this week's Big West tournament and gave life to teams hoping to snatch the conference's automatic NCAA bid. The impact of the injury to Anderson, the Big West defensive player of the year, adds intrigue to what most considered Long Beach's tournament to lose.

Long Beach State Coach Dan Monson knows how much Casper Ware, Larry Anderson, T.J. Robinson and Eugene Phelps have accomplished. They have combined to start 303 of the 382 games in which they have appeared for the 49ers, scoring 4,384 points. But Monson is also very much aware of what his four senior starters haven't accomplished: They have never made an NCAA tournament appearance. The 49ers lost to UC Santa Barbara in the Big West Conference tournament championship game the last two years, one game away from gaining an automatic bid to March Madness.
