Sports: Big West Tournament, Day 1

UC Santa Barbara easily defeated UC Riverside 76-44.

UCSB will face Cal Poly in the quarterfinals tomorrow.

Cal State Fullerton held on to beat Cal State Northridge 73-63.

The Titans will face the Beach on Thursday.

No upsets were contemplated and none occurred.

For the quarters, if UCSB, the 5-seed were to beat Cal Poly, the 4-seed, that wouldn't be much of an upset. I'd expect a close game in the 60s with UCSB prevailing. Fullerton as a 6-seed beating Long Beach State (3-seed) would be a surprise considering that LBSU has been on a roll of late. Fullerton can put up points but so can Long Beach so a game in the 80s would be about right. The Beach has been hot and should take the Titans down for the third time this season.
