ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Caffey scored 14 points and No. 3 seed Long Beach State beat sixth-seeded Cal State Fullerton 66-56 in the first round of the Big West Conference tournament Thursday.

Tyler Lamb added 13 points, Travis Hammonds scored 12 and A.J. Spencer 10 for LBSU (15-16), which has now advanced to at least the semifinals of the Big West Conference tournament in each of coach Dan Monson’s seven seasons. They will face fifth-seeded Cal State Northridge in the semifinals Friday.
