CSUN Head Coach Bobby Braswell has been named the Big West Conference’s Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season today. Braswell compiled an overall record of 15-13 (11-5 in the Big West) and led the Matadors to a conference regular-season championship and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming tournament despite losing two of his top players, guards Josh Jenkins and Deon Tresvant, in the midst of the conference season.

CSUN forward Tremaine Townsend was selected to the All-Big West First Team today as well. Townsend leads the Matadors in scoring at 11.1 points per game and is the conference’s top rebounder at 8.3 rpg.

Jenkins and guard Rob Haynes got Big West Honorable Mentions.

CSUN will play its next game on Friday against the lowest seed remaining in the conference tournament’s semifinal round by that day.
