Latest Features on BigWest.TV

2/28/2008

After a busy week last week with the Big West Swimming & Diving Championships, BigWest.TV turns its focus back to the hardwood and the diamonds.  In men’s basketball news, Cal State Fullerton head coach Bob Burton, Titan senior forwards Scott Cutley and Frank Robinson, and junior guard Josh Akognon give their thoughts on the season and the upcoming weekend.  Cal State Fullerton, currently second in the Big West, will host Cal State Northridge on Thursday, February 28 in a showdown for first place.  All Titan reporting is courtesy Michael Martinez, one of the voices of Cal State Fullerton Athletics.

 

Also on BigWest.TV, Cal Poly head coach Kevin Bromley discusses his team’s recent injury woes heading into the last two weeks of the conference season.  Bromley’s Mustangs host UC Riverside on Thursday and Pacific on Saturday, March 1.

 

In women’s basketball news, UC Riverside head coach John Margaritis talks about his team’s rollercoaster season before facing league-leading UC Santa Barbara on Saturday, March 1.  UC Riverside is currently in third place in the Big West Conference, after entering the season as the favorite to take the conference crown.  Highlander junior guard Seyram Gbewonyo also gives her perspective on the challenges she and her teammates have faced this year.

 

Pacific women’s hoops has won three of their last four games, including an overtime win over Cal Poly, with whom they are tied for fourth place in the Big West.  Coach Lynne Roberts and junior forward Karen Dawkins check in with what they think it will take for the Tigers to continue to their rise in the Big West.  Pacific faces second-place UC Davis this Saturday in their lone game this week.

 

The fifth feature on women’s hoops this week is Cal Poly head coach Faith Mimnaugh’s weekly press conference, in which she discusses her team’s slide since starting off 4-0 in conference play.  The Mustangs played their lone game of the week on Wednesday, defeating UC Riverside by a score of 54-52 and are currently tied with Pacific for fourth place in the Big West.

 

Baseball season is in full swing this week, with Cal Poly coach Larry Lee’s weekly press conference from San Luis Obispo.  The Mustangs opened the season by winning two out of three on the road from SEC opponent Alabama and head to the University of San Diego Tournament this weekend.  They will face three top-25 teams in San Diego (#22), Fresno State (#24), and Missouri (#5).

 

The No. 10 Long Beach State baseball team opened their season by taking two of three from then-No. 3 Rice.  Senior RHP Andrew Liebel got the Dirtbags off to a good start on Friday, February 22 by pitching eight scoreless innings while allowing just five hits and striking out a career-high eleven batters.  For his effort, Liebel was named Big West Pitcher of the Week.  See what Liebel had to say heading into the season in his Southern California Media Day interview.  Long Beach takes on No. 7 Wichita State this weekend at Blair Field.

 

Last but not least, Cal Poly softball player Melissa Pura, one of fifty players on the Amateur Softball Association's Watch List for the 7th annual USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year Award, talks about the Mustangs’ 3-0 weekend in a press conference from San Luis Obispo.  Pura is batting .310 with 2 home runs, 5 RBI, and 6 runs on the young season.  The Mustangs return to action on Monday, March 3 with a double-header against North Dakota .
