The races for the Big West titles in men's and women's basketball heat up with Long Beach State in control on the men's side and Pacific and Cal Poly on top on the women's.  Conference action ramps up in men's and women's tennis, while UC Santa Barbara hosts a big weekend in women's water polo.

Men's Basketball

Two-time defending Big West champs Long Beach State lead the conference at 6-1 coming into the week, with a pack of teams duking it out behind them.  The 49ers will play just one game this week, hosting Black and Blue rival UC Irvine in a doubleheader with their women Saturday.

Four games Thursday might help separate the contenders, with second-place Pacific hosting UC Riverside, third-place Hawai'i visiting Cal Poly, UC Davis at Cal State Fullerton, and Cal State Northridge at UC Santa Barbara.

FOX Sports Prime Ticket returns to UC Santa Barbara Saturday, as the Gauchos, winners of a classic Blue-Green rivalry game on Prime Ticket last weekend, host Hawai'i at 4:00 p.m. PT.


All home and conference games will be broadcast on the BigWest.TV platform.  Beginning this season, all BigWest.TV live content will stream FREE OF CHARGE.
