This Week in the Big West - January 10-16, 2011

1/10/2011

Conference play enters its third week for both men's and women's basketball, and just two months remain until the 2011 ampm Big West Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament at Honda Center!  Two televised games from Long Beach State highlight the men's side, while the women see a clash of conference leaders. Meanwhile, men's and women's tennis gets a "preview weekend," with three teams taking the court for the first time in 2011.

Men's Basketball

Long Beach State, in first place with a 4-0 Big West record, hosts UC Davis (ESPNU) and Pacific (FSN Prime Ticket) in a pair of televised games this week.

For the sixth year in a row, all home and conference games will be broadcast by the institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.

Men's Basketball Weekly Release #10


Women's Basketball

After two weeks of Big West play, two teams sit atop the conference standings with an unblemished 3-0 record. One team is on no surprise since they were picked second in the Big West preseason media poll, Cal Poly, and the other may seem a bit shocking to some, UC Irvine, who hasn't finished higher than sixth in the league since the 2002-03 season. Both teams have already knocked off 2009-10 Big West regular season champion and preseason favorite UC Davis and will battle each other this week.

For the sixth year in a row, all home and conference games will be broadcast by the institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.

Tennis

The 2011 men's and women's tennis seasons get a preview weekend, with three squads in action to open the spring.  While the majority of teams will get their start next Friday, the Cal State Northridge women will take the court for the first time on Friday at home against Nevada, while the UC Riverside men will open the men's season also against Nevada.  In a twist, the Highlander men will play the Wolfpack at Northridge.

The Cal Poly women will also open their 2011 schedule at home, hosting UC Santa Cruz on Saturday, and the UCR men will be back in action at the site of the 2011 Big West Men's and Women's Tennis Championships, Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California.
