The eighth-ranked Mountaineers are preparing to play their third straight game without Ebanks on Thursday when they face Long Beach State in the opening round of the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif. Shortly after defeating The Citadel 69-50 on Tuesday, West Virginia (2-0) boarded a plane for Southern California for this tournament. The winner of this game faces either No. 19 Clemson or Texas A&M on Friday, while 12th-ranked Butler, No. 22 Minnesota, UCLA and Portland round out the field.

This will be the first meeting between West Virginia and Long Beach State, the preseason pick to win the Big West. The 49ers (3-1) bounced back from last Thursday’s 82-62 loss to then-unranked Notre Dame with an 81-69 victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay on Saturday.

The 49ers are off to their best start since the 1996-97 team also opened 3-1, but it could be tough to keep it going.Long Beach State dropped both games against Top 25 opponents last season and has lost 13 in a row to ranked foes since defeating then-No. 25 New Mexico State 84-83 on Feb. 24, 1994.
