  1. Cal-Poly was great this season by winning Big West for the first time in the history of their school. There's only one team from the Big West always appear on NCAA tournament and beat bigger and better teams, the UH Wahines. But this year, Cal-Poly beat Hawaii at the conference's champioship and it had been only Hawaii always make it to the NCAA tournaments. So proud of the Big West Conference this year because there were 2 teams for the first time selected for the NCAA. It's been always Hawaii, but this year, Cal-Poly joined Hawaii as well. I think the big West Conference is getting stronger…
