The 2006-07 Big West Conference basketball television schedule includes eight games on Fox Sports West and at least two games on ESPN between men’s and women’s games.
On Feb. 17, the Bracket Buster Saturday games will be shown on ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN 360, while UC Irvine will take on UC Riverside on FSN Prime Ticket.
“The more success our players have, the more opportunities we have,” Cal Poly athletics director Alison Cone said. “If we’re a hot team at that point, I think there’s potential for us to be at that (ESPN) game. I’d love to see Poly get more exposure.”
According to a Big West press release, “the 2007 television schedule also marks the return of the Big West to ESPN’s ‘Big Monday.’”
On Feb. 26, the Long Beach State men will take on Pacific. The game will be televised on ESPN and is a rematch of the Big West tourney title game last season.
It will mark the Big West’s first appearance on Big Monday since the 1995-96 season.
Nine of the men’s upcoming games will be televised on KVMD or CSTV. And while the women’s teams will not be televised as often, their schedule includes UC Riverside at Long Beach State on Feb. 15 on KVMD, UC Riverside at UC Irvine on Feb. 17 on FSN Prime Ticket and the Big West Tournament title game March 10 on FSN Prime Ticket.
So far this season, the Cal Poly men’s record is 1-2 and the women’s 0-1.
