2/13/2012

Play ball!  Opening Day of the 2012 Big West baseball season is set for Friday, on the heels of softball openers last week.  As spring sports begin, the men's and women's basketball seasons edge closer to the 2012 Big West Basketball Tournament at Honda Center.

Baseball

The 2012 Big West baseball season gets underway Friday, Feb. 17 with UC Irvine picking up the honors of playing the first contest of the new year. The Anteaters battle Alabama State at noon as part of the Urban Invitational in Houston, Texas.

In addition, the first BigWest.TV baseball broadcasts of the year will be this weekend, as Cal Poly airs their three-game set against Oklahoma State.  As a bonus for fans, the entire series will air FREE OF CHARGE.

Once again, select home contests will be broadcast by institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.

Men's Basketball

Long Beach State travels to Creighton for a SEARS BracketBusters showdown this Saturday on ESPN2.  The 49ers carry a 12-game win streak into the matchup and a successful outcome would give the program its second consecutive 20-win season.

In addition, two-time defending Big West Tournament champs UC Santa Barbara will have their game at Utah State aired on ESPN3 and ESPN Full Court.

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.
