2/2/2009

Big West men’s and women’s basketball enters its second half of play this week, with Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara holding onto their leads in the men’s and women’s races, respectively.  The 49ers rebounded from a two-game skid with a win last Saturday to retain sole possession of first place, with Cal State Northridge right on their heels.

The Gaucho women won their lone conference game last week to remain undefeated on league play and extend their conference road winning streak to 18, the longest such streak in the nation.  However, the lady Gauchos fell in a non-conference road game at Cal State Bakersfield, snapping their 10-game winning streak.

In addition to basketball, Big West softball will make its 2009 season debut on BigWest.TV this week.  This will mark the third year of select softball coverage on BigWest.TV

Men’s Basketball

Big West men’s basketball returns to BigWest.TV with a full slate on Thursday, February 5.  All nine Big West teams will be in action, with four conference match-ups and one non-conference home game.  Pacific (5-3 in league play, 3rd in conference) will travel to Riverside to take on the Highlanders (3-5, 7th) beginning at 7:00 p.m. PT.  At 7:05 p.m., Cal State Fullerton (5-4, 4th) will host UC Santa Barbara (2-6, T-8th), while Long Beach State (6-2, 1st) takes on UC Davis (4-4, T-5th) and UC Irvine (4-4, T-5th) welcomes Cal Poly (2-6, T-8th).  The Cal State Northridge Matadors (5-3, 2nd) will square off with Cal State Bakersfield in a non-conference contest also beginning at 7:05 p.m.

Three more games are on the schedule for Saturday, February 7 beginning at 5:15 p.m. when UC Riverside hosts UC Davis in a homecoming game for the Highlanders.  At 6:05 p.m., Cal State Fullerton will tip off against Cal Poly from Titan Gym, while UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara cap off the night when they get started at 7:05 p.m. from the Bren Events Center.

***NOTE:  The Saturday, February 7 Pacific at Long Beach State match-up will air at 7:00 p.m. on Fox Sports Net Prime Ticket.  Due to rights restrictions, this and other ESPN or Fox Sports games will not be shown on BigWest.TV***

Women’s Basketball

Four women’s hoops contests are on tap Thursday, February 5, all beginning at 7:00 p.m.  League-leading UC Santa Barbara (8-0, 1st) will try to keep their perfect conference record intact against Cal State Fullerton (3-5, T-5th), while UC Riverside (7-1, 2nd) tries to keep pace at Pacific (5-3, T-3rd).  The Tigers have yet to lose at home this season, with an unblemished 10-0 record.  Cal Poly (5-3, T-3rd) will host UC Irvine (2-6, 9th) and UC Davis (3-6, T-5th) will face Long Beach State (1-7, 9th) in the night’s other two games.

UC Santa Barbara tips off against UC Irvine at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 7, the first of four games on the afternoon.  At 4:00 p.m., Cal Poly and Cal State Fullerton will tip at Mott Gymnasium while Pacific and Long Beach State get underway at the Spanos Center.  UC Davis and UC Riverside will play the final game of the day beginning at 7:00 p.m. when they square off at the Pavilion.

Softball

***UPDATE - Friday, February 6*** Due to weather conditions in Southern California, the Cal State Fullerton-Indiana match-up on Friday, February 6 has been canceled.  The contests against Purdue on Saturday, February 7 have been shifted, and because of scheduling conflicts, will NOT be shown on BigWest.TV.  The games, however are scheduled to be played on Saturday.  Please head to FullertonTitans.com for more information.

The Cal State Fullerton Titans will be the first Big West team to appear on BigWest.TV in 2009.  The Titans are picked to finish second in the Big West preseason softball poll, after a disappointing fifth-place finish in 2008.  With ten newcomers, coach Michelle Gromacki will have to pull her team together quickly, as they open against Big Ten opponents Indiana and Purdue.

The Titans will open their season on Friday, February 6 against Indiana at 6:00 p.m.  They will then face Purdue on Saturday, February 7 beginning at 1:00 p.m.  As a bonus for fans, both games will broadcast FREE OF CHARGE, though a no-cost registration with CBS College Sports is required.

***NOTE: The second game of the Fullerton-Purdue double-header will not be shown on BigWest.TV due to conflicts with Titan men's basketball.  Live audio of the game will be available free of charge on FullertonTitans.com***
