This Week in the Big West - May 23-29, 2011

Baseball Weekly Release #15
The 2011 Big West Baseball Championship is Cal State Fullerton's to lose. With the final week of the regular season upon us, the Titans (17-4) own a two-game lead over second place UC Irvine (15-6). That means if Cal State Fullerton, winning eight of the last nine contests, is victorious in just one contest in its three-game series versus Cal State Northridge, who is 5-16 in the Big West, it will claim at least a share of its 25th conference title. If the Titans win the series, they lock out UC Irvine to grab sole possession of the crown. The Anteaters battle Long Beach State in their final home series of the year.
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.
Big West Player of the Year Chris Kearney of UC Irvine and the All-Big West First Team doubles tandem of Andre Dome and Alexander Sonesson from Cal Poly will represent the conference at the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Singles and Doubles Championships May 25-30 at the Taube Tennis Center in Stanford, Calif.
