Long Beach State rallies past UC San Diego 112-110 in 3 OTs

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Marcus Tsohonis scored a school-record 46 points, Maddox Monson stole the ball and fed AJ George for a go-ahead layup with 2.7 seconds remaining in the third overtime and undermanned Long Beach State pulled out a 112-110 victory over UC San Diego. Tsohonis sank 15 of 38 shots with three 3-pointers and made 13 of 17 free throws for the Beach (10-10, 4-4 Big West Conference), who suited up just eight players because of injuries. He topped the 45-point efforts of Gabe Levin (2018) and Ed Ratliff (1971). Freshman Roddie Anderson III scored a career-high 28 points for the Tritons (7-13, 2-6). He made 8 of 20 shots and 12 of 14 free throws. Anderson scored 26 in a 71-64 win over Cal Poly last time out. Francis Nwaokorie scored a career-best 26 and grabbed 14 rebounds.
