Big West Conference

Cal State Northridge (14-15, 5-8) at UC Santa Barbara (17-10, 8-5), 4, FSN West -- The Gauchos enter their regular-season finale with consecutive victories, having already secured the No. 4 seeding and a first-round bye into next week's conference tournament. Northridge has won two of its last three, but a loss Thursday means the Matadors can't finish higher than fifth and will have to play a first-round game in the conference tournament.

Long Beach State (21-7, 11-2) at UC Riverside (7-22, 1-12), 5 -- Aaron Nixon is averaging 24.5 points over his last four games and has the 49ers rolling into their regular-season finale with seven consecutive conference victories. They have already clinched the top seeding for the conference tournament. UC Riverside is coming off a victory over UC Davis, its second win in four games.

Nonconference

Cal State Fullerton (19-8) at UC Davis (7-22), 7 -- The Titans have lost three of their last four games and would slip out of second place should Cal Poly San Luis Obispo win at home against Pacific. That would deny Fullerton a bye into the conference tournament semifinals. A victory would make them only the fourth team in school history to reach 20 wins. Davis has lost 11 consecutive games heading into its season finale. The Aggies will join the Big West next season.
