Big West conference tournament preview

This is part 31 of a 32-part series.

UC Davis 12-4
UC Santa Barbara 11-5
UC Irvine 11-5
Cal St-Fullerton 10-6
Long Beach St 9-7
Hawaii 8-8
Cal Poly 4-12
UC Riverside 4-12
Cal St-Northridge 3-13

They kicked out the last place team.  Top 8 go to Anaheim.  March 8-10.

1) UC Davis vs. 8) UC Riverside
4) Cal St Fullerton vs. 5) Long Beach St
3) UC Irvine vs. 6) Hawaii
2) UC Santa Barbara vs. 7) Cal Poly

The stakes:
After a horrific year, the league finally acted like they didn't suck.  This will get them off the 16 line this year, in all likelihood.  On the other hand, I feel very strongly that there's no chance anyone gets higher than a 15 seed.  They're all more or less the same.

UCSB, UCI, CSUF, LBSU, lots 'o acronyms for lots 'o CIT eligible teams.
