LBSU faces challenge against streaking UC Davis

The Long Beach State women’s basketball team will be travelling to The Pavilion at UC Davis Thursday hoping to put a halt to its three-game losing streak. The Aggies will enter the game on a four-game winning streak and have won the last two matchups between the schools last season. Redshirt senior forward Morgan Bertsch is the unquestioned leader for Davis (13-6, 5-1 Big West), as she leads the team in scoring with 23.8 points per game and averages almost six rebounds and two assists.

Head coaches Dan Monson and Jeff Cammon  of the men’s and women’s teams will have four different sets to choose from: a white uniform with black lettering, black with white lettering, charcoal with gold lettering and a gold uniform with “The LBC” front and center. I am not the biggest fan of the updated Beach logo, but all of these uniforms are very sharp. The addition of the Big West conference logo on the opposite shoulder of the Nike swoosh also makes Long Beach look more professional, similar to powerhouse schools in the Pac-12 conference or the ACC. It may not seem like a big deal, but small details like new uniforms and a city edition jersey help with recruiting. It goes along with the saying ,“Look good, feel good, play good.” I
