This Week in the Big West - February 28-March 6, 2011

2/28/2011

Just ONE WEEK until the 2011 ampm Big West Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament at Honda Center!   Games for the 2011 ampm Big West Women's Tournament open on campus sites, Tuesday, March 8 with Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara, UC Riverside and UC Davis set to host.  The men's tournament opens at Honda Center Thursday, March 10 with Long Beach State and Cal Poly as the top two seeds.  Meanwhile, spring sports continue their preseason marches as their seasons move on.

Baseball

Nine Big West schools combine for 37 games played on the diamond this week. Of the nine schools, four are slated to face Top 25 competition.

UC Davis is set to play its first three-game series at home this weekend and they are doing so against one of the nation's best. The 2008 NCAA national champion Fresno State Bulldogs, currently ranked 21st, travel to Dobbins Stadium for a weekend series beginning Friday, March 4 at 2:30 pm. Saturday and Sundays games begin at 1:00 p.m. Last year Fresno State took two-of-three games from UC Davis to win the series at Beiden Field in Fresno.

Long Beach State entered the 2011 season with one of the strongest schedules in the country, ranked third overall and first in nonconference. For the third straight week, Long Beach State faces a nationally-ranked opponent in a three-game series.  This week doesnt get much easier for Long Beach as former Big West coach George Horton brings the 15th-ranked Oregon Ducks to Blair Field for a three-game series.

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

With one week left of the regular season, Cal Poly (12-3), UC Santa Barbara (11-4), UC Riverside (9-5) and UC Davis (8-6) have already secured a top-four seed in the first round of the 2011 ampm Big West Womens Basketball Tournament, awarding them hosting duties.
