The Big West final is set: UC-D v. UC-R

A Cal Poly comeback effort fell short as the third-seeded Riverside Highlanders escaped to the tournament final with a 54-51 win.

Top-seeded UC Davis finished the game on a 10-2 run to take down 63, UC Santa Barbara 63-53. This means the Big West Tournament women’s final will be without UC Santa Barbara for the first time since 1996.
"I'm really proud of our kids," UC-Davis coach Sandy Simpson said. "I thought we were ready come game time and that we managed our emotions well. We weren't too hyped up, but we were excited, certainly."
The game will be televised live on FSN Prime Ticket at 4pmEST.
