This Week in the Big West - March 12-18, 2012

3/12/2012

Postseason play for men's and women's basketball takes center stage this week as March Madness continues for three men's teams and five women's teams.  Meanwhile, spring sports hit their stride in non-conference play.

Baseball

Cal State Fullerton, fresh off its second series victory over a ranked opponent, returns home this week to face Big West rival Long Beach State for three games that will count in the overall but not the conference standings.  The Titans are ranked in the top 10 for the first time this season, checking in at No. 8 in theCollegiate Baseball poll.

Once again, select home contests will be broadcast by institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.
