ANAHEIM, Calif. -

UCSB saw firsthand why Cal Poly's Molly Schlemer is the Big West Player of the Year. The junior scored 20 of her game-high 26 points in the second half to lead the Mustangs to a convincing 62-43 victory that puts Cal Poly into the championship game of the conference tournament. The Mustangs will play Pacific on Saturday at 1 p.m.

UCSB got off to a fast 8-2 start as Cal Poly missed their first eight shots. But by halftime the Mustangs led 22-19 and opened the second half on a 13-2 run and ran away with the victory. The Gauchos were led by Nicole Nesbit's 11 points but the Mustangs held senior Sweets Underwood to just four points.

This will be Cal Poly's third Big West Conference Tournament Championship game and the Mustangs will be looking for their first title.
