Gauchos End Skid Against Long Beach State

UCSB Scores First Win Against 49ers in Last Six Meetings

UCSB Pulls Away From Long Beach With Big Second Half

UC SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - It was a strange night at UCSB's Thunderdome.

The Gauchos had 12 first half turnovers but still led. Low post banger Mitch Brewe made two three-pointers and the rarest event was a Gauchos home win over Long Beach State.

Santa Barbara broke open a 26-24 halftime lead with a 24-7 run to start the second half as they cruised to a 64-51 win over the 49ers. The Gauchos had lost five straight against Long Beach State and had not beaten the 49ers in the Thunderdome since the 2009-'10 season.

Michael Bryson led a balanced attack with 13 points while Alan Williams and Brewe each scored 12 points. For Brewe the twelve points are a career-high.

UCSB is now 1-1 in the Big West Conference and 10-5 overall.
