This Week in the Big West - April 18-24, 2011

4/18/2011

This week opens with the 2011 Big West Women's Golf Championship at Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita, California.  The event is the first of five spring championships over the next moth, with men's golf, men's and women's tennis, and women's water polo all racing to their season-ending events.

Baseball

Defending champion Cal State Fullerton sits atop the Big West Conference standings with a near-perfect 8-1 record. UC Irvine and Cal Poly find themselves knotted in second place with a 6-3 mark with Long Beach State sitting a game back in fourth at 5-4. The second-place Mustangs welcome the league-leading Titans to Baggett Stadium for a three-game series beginning Thursday, April 21 at 6:00 p.m.

UC Davis took a break from conference play last week to battle the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners. This week the Aggies return to league play when they visit Cicerone Field at Anteater Ballpark to battle second place UC Irvine. The Anteaters, who have won three of their last four contests, own an unblemished 14-0 mark at home this year.

Long Beach State looks to win its second-straight conference series this week when it visits UC Santa Barbara, who's coming off a tightly-contested series against Cal State Fullerton. Unfortunately, the Gauchos dropped all three-contests by one-run each.

Pacific and Cal State Northridge also square off this week at Matador Field for a three-game stint scheduled from Thursday, April 21-Saturday, April 23. The Matadors are still in the hunt for their first Big West victory of the 2011 season.

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