AROUND THE BIG WEST

CONFERENCE KICK OFFalt

Friday signals the start of Big West play as all nine teams compete in their first league contest of the season.  The Big West Tournament is just five weeks away.

CAL POLY’S CROZIER APPROACHES MILESTONE
Cal Poly head coach Alex Crozier approaches his 100th conference victory with two league games on deck this weekend. The Mustangs host Hawai‘i Friday before traveling south to Cal State Fullerton Sunday. The coach is 99-45-17 in the Big West all time and boasts an overall 221-147-42 mark.

HAWAI‘I MOUNTS BEST START IN HISTORY
After a 2-1 win at Air Force, Hawai‘i moved to 7-1-1 on the year, the best-ever start in program history through nine games.  UH is in the midst of a historic campaign and looks to start conference play the same way it opened its non-conference action.  The Rainbow Wahine will return to the pitch when they meet the Mustangs in San Luis Obispo. UH is 2-1 on the road in 2016.

CSUN SETS NEW PROGRAM MARK
After shutting out Nebraska-Omaha last weekend, CSUN earned its seventh clean sheet to set a new program record. Junior goalkeeper Jovani McCaskill recorded her 14th career shutout in the process (her seventh on the year). The seven shutouts are the most in the Big West and rank fourth-best in the NCAA.

CSUN RANKS NATIONALLY
With seven shutouts on the year, CSUN has earned a .421 goals-against average, the eighth-best in the NCAA and the best in the Big West.

TOP TEAMS CLASH
Hawai‘i (7-1-1) will travel to UC Santa Barbara (9-1-1) Sunday as the top two teams in the league square off at Harder Stadium. UCSB will make its conference debut on the pitch that day while UH will face Cal Poly three days prior.

PALACIOS ATOP THE NATION
UC Irvine junior Kiana Palacios is tied for the fourth-best goal total in the NCAA with nine scores on the year. The nine goals are the best in the Big West.  Palacios also ranks nationally in the top 10 in the following categories: game winning goals (4-T4th) and toal points (23-T3rd).

We caught up with Kiana on her season so far, check it out HERE.

BLACK AND BLUEalt
The local rivalry is renewed this weekend as UC Irvine travels to Long Beach State for a Black and Blue showdown Friday.  The Anteaters claimed the last matchup at home in a 2-0 shutout last season.

#BWConESPN3
