BIG WEST AT A GLANCE
IF THE TOURNAMENT WAS TODAY
If the Big West Tournament was today, UC Irvine would earn the No. 1 seed, followed by Long Beach State (2-seed), UC Santa Barbara (3-seed) and UC Davis (4-seed). All teams mentioned have the potential to win the regular season, as well as Hawai‘i. No team has secured a bid at this time. The top four teams in league at this time also have the opportuity to host the women’s soccer tournament.
When determining tiebreakers in the Big West standings, head-to-head matchups lead the way, followed by goal differential in conference games, then least amount of conference goals allowed, then most conference goals scored before comparing records against conference opponents. When three or more teams finish tied in points, those three or more teams’ points earned against each other are compared with the most points earning that tiebreaker, and the remaining teams go through the same process.
UC DAVIS ON THE ROAD
With a 1-0 overtime win at CSUN last week, the Aggies move to 3-3 on the road this season, the most road victories for UCD since 2014 (3-6).
UC IRVINE SEEKS BACK-TO-BACK TITLES
Defending regular season champion, UC Irvine, looks for its fourth title all-time.
RAINBOW WAHINE IN HUNT FOR TOURNAMENT BID
With nine points for fifth place in the current standings, Hawai‘i looks to secure a spot in the Big West Tournament for the first time in program history. The Rainbow Wahine must win its final two regular season games and needs either Long Beach State, UC Irvine, UC Davis or UC Santa Barbara to lose their remaining contests in order to earn a berth to the post-season conference tournament.
