LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Ben Dickinson scored on a putback and Anthony Ireland added a pair of free throws in the final 6 seconds as Loyola Marymount edged Long Beach State 74-73 on Thursday night.

His dunk was partially blocked and Dickinson made the putback for a 73-72 lead with 6 seconds left. Ireland, who was in the top 10 free throw shooters in the West Coast Conference last season, hit two free throws after a 49er turnover.

Long Beach State's LaSalle McKay missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Dickinson and Ireland each finished with 14 points and Evan Payne led the Lions with 18.

Mike Caffey led Long Beach State (1-2) with a game-high 23 points. Dan Jennings added 18 and A.J. Spencer 12.
