Men's Basketball

Big West men's basketball starts out 2012 on a busy note with three nights of action this week, highlighted by matchups between Cal Poly and three other title contenders in UC Santa Barbara, Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton.  The defending champion 49ers open up at UC Irvine.

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.

Women's Basketball

One week of Big West action in the record books and Cal State Northridge and Long Beach State both collected a pair of wins. The 49ers are off to their best start in Big West play since the 2005-06 season, the same year they claimed a share of the Big West regular season title. The Matadors and 49ers hosted the same two opponents, UC Irvine and UC Riverside, and earned their first home victories in both respective series since the 2006-07 season.

Also maintaining a perfect record through the first week are the Pacific Tigers and the Cal Poly Mustangs, who each recorded a home victory. The Tigers downed Cal State Fullerton, 72-67, and Cal Poly won the battle between the co-defending champions with a last-second 61-58 victory over UC Santa Barbara. The win snapped a seven game winless streak for the Mustangs who played their first game at home since Nov. 30th. The Gauchos have now dropped its past three games by a combined six points and lost its conference opener for just the second time in the last 17 seasons.

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.
