Tears were shed after Saturday’s game against Cal Poly, but it wasn’t because the 49ers lost in overtime.

Long Beach State fell to the Mustangs, 107-102, in its first 100-point game in eight years, but the mood quickly turned positive as guard Alex Sanchez accepted a marriage proposal at half court after the game.

The game itself certainly lived up to its high expectations given that the reigning Big West Champs were in town with the dynamic Cal Poly lineup that yields two of the top three scorers in the Big West: Molly Schlemer (18.6) and Ariana Elegado (17.5).

The 49ers lose to Cal Poly in overtime, but the evening ends on a positive note as guard Alex Sanchez gets engaged.
