This Week in the Big West - December 12-18, 2011

12/13/2011

After some light schedules due to finals, men's and women's hoops picks up as December hits its midway point and teams test themselves with the conference schedule looming.

Men's Basketball

Cal Poly tied the program's best start at the Division I level, matching the 2001-02 squad which won six of its first nine games, and looks to improve on that mark with games against Menlo College and Fresno State this week.

Meanwhile, tough road games await teams coming off finals week, with UC Santa Barbara visiting San Diego and Washington, and UC Davis facing UCLA in Anaheim at Honda Center, the site of the 2012 Big West Basketball Tournament.  The Aggies and Bruins will square off on Fox Sports Prime Ticket Saturday.

For the seventh year, all home and conference games, with the exception of ESPN and FOX Sports contests, will be broadcast by the institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.
