FINAL: Washington 92, Long Beach State 89 -- Caffey missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it in the final seconds, and the Huskies hang on for the victory. Mike Anderson rebounded a missed free-throw by Andrew Andrews with 16.6 seconds left, then was fouled and made one of his two shots to give UW some breathing room. Huskies improve to 4-3, and are off until they play at San Diego State on Dec. 8.
End of first overtime -- There will be a second overtime after LBSU scored five straight to tie the game at 85-85. The last bucket was a layup by Caffey with 3.8 seconds left. Double OT now.
End of regulation -- A wild finish here as Williams-Goss made one of two free throws to tie the game at 78-78 with 10.2 seconds left, then LBSU missed a shot and had another one blocked as time expired. We're going to overtime.
7:36, second half -- Wilcox just made a 3-pointer to cut the LBSU lead to 65-61. But the Huskies aren't going to win this game if they don't play better defense. The 49ers are shooting 58.8 from the field but still getting strong looks near the hoop. UW needs stops.
12:06, second half -- Long Beach is on a 7-0 run and leads, 58-52. Dan Jennings has been a force inside, scoring 10 of his game-high 16 points in the second half. 49ers shooting 61.4 percent from the field. Huskies at 37.8.
HALFTIME -- Washington 38, Long Beach State 37. Well, the Huskies still aren't playing much defense, allowing a lot of easy looks inside for Long Beach State, which is shooting 58.6 percent from the field and has scored 22 points in the paint. But the Huskies have made 5-of-10 from 3-point range and 11-12 at the free throw line. Wilcox leads with 10 points. Mike Caffey has 10 points for the 49ers.
1:56, first half -- UW isn't playing much defense (again), allowing LBSU to shoot 64 percent from the field so far. But the Huskies lead, 38-35, thanks to solid 3-point shooting and 11 made free-throws in 12 attempts.
11:20, first half -- LBSU is on a 7-0 run and leads 17-15. Perris Blackwell and Shawn Kemp Jr. each have two fouls, and all four of those fouls were called on the offensive end. Not good for UW's frontcourt depth.
14:56, first half -- UW is out to a 12-10 lead, and C.J. Wilcox has made two 3-pointers to set the school career record. He now has 232 career 3-pointers, one more than the previous record set by Ryan Appleby.

Scouting report: This isn’t one of coach Dan Monson’s better teams. LBSU has played a tough schedule, with games against Michigan, Kansas State, Arizona and VCU, but the only team the 49ers managed to win was against Hawaii-Pacific. There was offseason turmoil, with three players departing under murky circumstances, and it’s affected LBSU’s depth. They shoot only 26.5 percent from 3-point range, so Lorenzo Romar’s new packed-in defensive strategy might be particularly effective against the struggling 49ers.
