[BIG WEST WOMEN] UC Santa Barbara, which earned four first-place votes, is the favorite to win the 2010 Big West women’s championship. The Gauchos return eight starters, including 2009 Big West Offensive Player of the Year Kailyn Kugler, from the 2009 squad that captured a second consecutive Big West Tournament title and NCAA Tournament automatic berth. 

Kugler is joined by senior teammates and fellow first team all-conference honorees Kylie McDonald and Jacqui Simon.

Cal Poly, the 2009 Big West regular-season champion, garnered two first-place votes and 61 points for second place. The Mustangs return 2008 Big West Defensive Player of the Year Carrie Andrews to anchor the conference’s stingiest defensive squad.
