NACOGDOCHES – The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks received their draw for the 2013 BracketBusters game on Monday, learning they will travel to Long Beach State for a game on Feb. 22 to be televised on ESPNU.
The game is scheduled to tip at 8:00 p.m. CT from The Pyramid in Long Beach.
The 49ers are 13-8 on the season, but are off to a 9-1 start in the Big West, including winning each of their last nine games.
SFA and Long Beach State have met twice before with the 49ers taking each matchup; however, the teams have not met since a 70-62 Long Beach win in Nacogdoches in 1992.
The 11th annual BracketBusters is a three-day men's college basketball event pitting potential NCAA Championship hopefuls against each other Feb. 22-23. As part of the agreement, all home teams will play a return game at the home facility of their opponent in November or December of the 2013-14 season.
