LBSU Last Year: All LBSU did last year was finish 24-9, win the Big West Conference and make it to the NCAA Tournament. No biggie.
LBSU Coach: Dan Monson, 4th year. After eight seasons in Minnesota, Monson resurfaced here and has taken a "anyone, anywhere, anytime" approach to building the49ers up. He's doing it well with two-straight 20-win seasons.

Unexciting Reason To Watch: You probably know nothing about this team.
Exciting Reason To Watch: This team will probably end up being one you point to on SU's resume in March.
