Re "UCD a point short in Big West clash" (Sports, March 8): The Bee's coverage of Sacramento State's Division I men's basketball game on against the Montana Grizzlies contained a single line about the valiant effort of Sac State's basketball players fighting for a tournament spot against the top team in the Big Sky conference: "John Dickson led Sac State (14-14, 8-11) with 15 points."
The rest of the story was about the Montana team, and that was the extent of The Bee's coverage!
Doesn't the only Division I college men's team in Sacramento deserve better than this?
The Hornets kept the game close (a one or two possession game for much of the second half) until the final two minutes and there were some outstanding individual efforts for the Hornets. Would it have made a difference if ESPN2 had aired the CSUS-Montana game instead of the UCD-Long Beach Game? That shouldn't matter.
