Welcome to Paradise
After a pair of home games to open the season, the Long Beach State men's basketball team will kick off their road schedule in Paradise, as they arrive in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands to participate in the 2010 Paradise Jam tournament.
The tournament field includes Clemson, Xavier, and Old Dominion, all NCAA tournament participants last year, as well as Alabama, Iowa, Seton Hall and St. Peters.
For the second year in a row, the 49ers will face off with Clemson , who LBSU battled in the second round of last year's 76 Classic, ultimatley losing to the Tigers 87-79 in a hotly contested match. Long Beach State's rematch against Clemson is slated for Friday at 12:30 p.m. PDT.
Fans not able to make their way to St. Thomas can still check out all the hoops action online and on TV. Come down to The Beach Club on Friday at 12:30 p.m. for a live streaming of Long Beach State's opening round game against Clemson.
The rest of LBSU's games will be determined based on whether they win or lose throughout the tournament, but in any case, the 49ers will play three games over the four day trip. Click here for a complete Paradise Jam tournament bracket with all possible scenarios.
