# Confusion with adding to cell array

I have a cell array with the structure as such,
linesegs = [1x2 double] [1x2 double]
I do some calculations on with some other data that is sent to a function within the current program using a function handle. This results in the following structure within the function.
B = [0 0 1 1];
I want insert this array in the next row of linesegs. Basically B would be split into two cells, one containing [0 0] and the other [1 1].
Everything that I've tried seems to be failing.

linesegs(2,:) = mat2cell(B, 1, [2 2]);

This should work:
a = {[0 0], [0 0]}
b = [1 2 3 4]
a{1} = b(1:2) %choose the first two elements from b and assign to first in a.
a{2} = b(3:4) %choose third and fourth

Note that is not "the next row".
