MALIBU — Bryan Alberts hit a career-high six 3-pointers on the way to a 20-point night, as Long Beach State’s pace was a key in a 78-71 nonconference victory over Pepperdine at Firestone Fieldhouse.
Long Beach scored 16 points on the fast break and forced Pepperdine into 16 turnovers. The 49ers also did an excellent job sharing the ball, making 21 assists with just 12 turnovers.
A 10-3 run gave Long Beach a 35-26 lead with 2:41 left in the half, but Pepperdine (3-7) took advantage of a series of LBSU turnovers to pull even at 35-35 by halftime.

The Dodgers were among the losing bidders for free agent Shohei Ohtani, though not by much – geographically speaking.
Ohtani will go to the Angels instead, one of seven teams the hyped Japanese pitcher-slash-slugger considered in the end.

The press called it “the LaVar rule,” since it was clearly meant to keep them away from the out-of-control paterfamilias who had become increasingly critical of the Lakers.
If only silencing him was that easy, or possible …
ORANGE Orange’s football program recruited Nick Guzman from soccer to kick field goals and extra points last season. The arrangement worked pretty well for the Panthers until Friday night.
That’s when it became legendary.
The junior booted an 18-yard field goal for the only score of overtime to lift upstart Orange past previously undefeated Caruthers of Fresno County, 46-43, in a thrilling CIF Southern California Division 6-AA regional at El Modena High.

No basketball player in Orange County is hotter than El Dorado’s Kenedy Lilly.
The 6-foot-5, uncommitted junior scored 40 points Wednesday in a 67-55 victory against previously undefeated El Rancho at the Covina Classic.
On Monday, Lilly scored a school-record 50 points in a 65-23 victory against El Monte, shattering the school record by 12 points.
“She has not only been scoring but playing awesome defense,” El Dorado coach Sarita Stamps said Wednesday night. “She is not a one-sided player. She does a great job of passing as well.”
