Bobby Braswell, who will lead the Cal State Northridge basketball team against Kansas in the NCAA tournament Friday, has been selected Big Sky Conference coach of the year.

Braswell led the Matadors (22-9) to their first Big Sky Conference title and first NCAA tournament in his fifth season.

Northridge's 22 victories are the team's most since 1977-78. It is the second consecutive year Northridge won at least 20 games.

Braswell's record at Northridge is 85-62.

The Matadors play Kansas in a Midwest regional at Dayton, Ohio.

Northridge is scheduled to depart today at 7 a.m. and arrive in Dayton at 5 p.m. CST. The Matadors will hold an evening practice. Game time is 4:40 p.m. Friday.
