Portland, Ore. -- All that is missing is the black top. Long Beach State and New Mexico played at a pace, and at times the efficiency, of a pick-up game during their NCAA tournament game at the Rose Garden on Thursday. All that was missing was five guys on the sideline calling, “Next.” New Mexico's late 10-3 spurt gave the Lobos a 33-29 halftime lead. Both teams looked skittish to start the game. Long Beach turned the ball over on its first five possessions, then missed two shots on its sixth possession.
