It remains to be seen whether Long Beach State can regain the conference title from defending champ UC Santa Barbara next season, but the 49ers definitely have Big West bragging rights in at least one respect.
So far they have the new season's funniest promotional video.
All-conference wing Larry Anderson opens the video by telling viewers, "Me and my teammates have been working hard this offseason. We even come to practice when we're sick, so we have to keep them away from every body else." In the next scene, we see a game of 2-on-2 in which one player on each team is inside a plastic bubble, a la the famous Bubble Boy episode from Seinfeld.
With Anderson, point guard Casper Ware and forward T.J. Robinson back for another season, Long Beach State figures to be the top challenger to UC Santa Barbara next season in what could be an improved Big West. Hopefully that trio will treat us to another video or two as the season progresses.
