Long Beach is now 5-19 overall, 2-8 in conference. The 19 losses equal the most in program history. The 1997-98 team also lost 19 games. The 49ers have five games left, not including the conference tournament. Cal Poly 67, 49ers 56Saturday: vs. UC Yes, the 49ers are a team filled with eight freshmen and a couple of transfers. But they have played 24 games and they seem to be regressing instead of improving. Karina Figueroa led Long Beach with 17 points. She made 5 of 16 from the field, just 1 of 9 in the first half. Cal Poly was led by Toni Newman, who had 16 points and eight steals. Megan Harrison scored 12 points and Jessica Eggleston had eight points and four steals. Of the 26 turnovers, 18 of them came off Cal Poly steals. “We started off well versus their man-to-man,” Long Beach assistant coach Jason Flowers said. Head coach Mary Hegarty deferred questions to her assistants. “When they went zone, for whatever reason, it seemed like it gave us problems. So I think there was some confusion at the beginning, as far as players recognizing what they were in regardless of what we were yelling from the bench.” The 49ers led the entire first half, but the Mustangs caught Long Beach, 31-31, with 18:34 to play. The game was still tight, with Cal Poly leading 41-40 at the 13:02 mark. But Cal Poly embarked on an 11-1 run for a 52-41 advantage with 8:04 left. Long Beach got back to within seven (57-50) with 4:28 to go, but Cal Poly eventually took a 15-point lead (65-50) with 1:57 to play. The 49ers next will play host to Santa Barbara on Saturday at 5 p.m. A loss would give Long Beach the most losses in program history. Pagani had an interesting thought about that. “That’s rad,” she said. “I don’t mind it at all. In fact, it just motivates me to want to make it to the tournament in March. We want to be the comeback kids. You know what I’m saying?” The only way the 49ers can get into the NCAA Tournament is to win the conference tournament title. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s about the only good news that came out of Walter Pyramid. Outscored by 15 in the second half, the 49ers were defeated by Cal Poly, 67-56, in a Big West Conference women’s basketball game before 847. Santa Barbara Walter Pyramid, 5 p.m. Long Beach led 28-24 at halftime, even though it had already committed 15 of its 26 turnovers. The Mustangs (9-12, 4-4) helped the 49ers by shooting a miserable 27.3 percent (9 of 33) from the floor. But they shot 48.5 percent (16 of 33) in the second half, and since Long Beach played no better in the second half, it couldn’t keep up. Once again, the 49ers had moments where they played well. Once again, they could sustain nothing. “At times, when we need that one person to pull us together, it’s kind of hard because we don’t really know each other that well yet,” said junior transfer Madison Pagani, who scored 11 points and pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds.
