12/29/2008

The race for the Big West title tips off this week with the beginning of men’s and women’s basketball conference play, but not before most teams finish off with one last non-conference contest.  Catch all the action through to the Big West Tournament in March exclusively on BigWest.TV!

Men’s Basketball

Conference play tips off on the men’s side on Monday, December 29 with an early rematch of 2008 Big West Tournament semi-finalists Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Northridge.  The Titans and the Matadors squared off last March in a game that saw Fullerton advance to the Big West Tournament Championship and Northridge head home with their dreams dashed.  The Matadors will have a chance for revenge when they tip-off in Titan Gym at 7:05 p.m. PT.

Also on Monday, Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara will play their final non-conference games before beginning their quest for the Big West title.  The Mustangs will host Fresno State while the Gauchos welcome Ball State.  Both games are set for 7:00 p.m.

UC Davis will host Dartmouth on Tuesday, December 30 in their final game before league play.  The Aggies are playing their first game since a December 21 contest against Loyola (MD) and are looking to end a two-game losing skid.  This will be the second game of a doubleheader with the UC Davis women’s team, with tip time set for 7:00 p.m.

Teams will take a break for the New Year, but return in earnest on Friday, January 2.  UC Riverside will host Cal Poly in the first of three Big West contests to be played Friday night.  The Highlanders and Mustangs face off beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Five minutes later, Cal State Northridge will play host to Pacific and Long Beach State will take the floor against preseason-favorite UC Santa Barbara.

Cal State Fullerton will play their second league contest of the week on Saturday, January 3 when they travel to Irvine to take on the Anteaters.  The game will be a rematch of last season’s Big West Tournament Championship which the Titans won.  Tip time at the Bren Events Center is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

The first weekend of conference play ends on Sunday, January 4 with a pair of games.  At 2:00 p.m., UC Riverside will face UC Santa Barbara.  The Highlanders and Gauchos will be followed at 4:05 p.m. by Cal Poly and Long Beach State.

Women’s Basketball

A trio of non-conference match-ups is on the schedule for Tuesday, December 30 beginning at 4:45 p.m. when the UC Davis women host Seattle University in the first game of a doubleheader with the Aggie men.  At 7:00 p.m., Cal State Fullerton will tip-off against Columbia while UC Riverside faces off against Yale.

The women begin league play on Friday, January 2 with three more games, all set to begin at 7:00 p.m.  Cal Poly will host UC Riverside, perennial favorite UC Santa Barbara welcomes Long Beach State, and Pacific gets a visit from Cal State Northridge.

The lone women’s game on Saturday, January 3 will be a mirror of the lone men’s game, as Cal State Fullerton hosts UC Irvine at Titan Gym.  Tip time is a little early at 5:00 p.m.

A third threesome of games will finish out the week on Sunday, January 4.  At 2:00 p.m., Cal State Northridge will finish off their Northern California trip at UC Davis while a rematch of the 2006 and 2007 Big West Tournament Championships will take place when UC Riverside pays a visit to UC Santa Barbara.  Cal Poly and Long Beach State round out the schedule beginning at 4:00 p.m. when the 49ers head to Mott Gym.
