The CSUN Matadors will echo a Big West Tournament semi-final setup seen last year when they faced off against the University of California, Davis Friday — a team that have not defeated in the regular season.

Last year, CSUN played their first semi-final game against the University of California, Irvine who took both regular season games from them.

They defeated the Irvine 78-60 March 14, 2014 and moved on to take the championship from California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo.

The Matadors have given up both games this season to Davis, one Jan. 8 60-49 in the Big West Opener, and the other Feb. 5 73-67.

CSUN will face Davis Friday at the Honda Center in Anaheim for their first Big West Tournament
