  1. CSUB basketball: Rough start to season for WAC teams

    Cal State Bakersfield begins a three-game tournament at Utah State on Thursday. At 1-8, the Roadrunners need a win in one of those games to avoid the worst start of a season in the program's history.

    But no one in the Western Athletic Conference has gotten off to a very good start this season. Through Wednesday Dec. 17, no WAC men's team is above .500. Seattle and Texas-Pan American are both 5-5; everyone else is at least two games under .500.

    CSUB at 1-8 has the worst record, but Chicago State is right there (2-10). Utah Valley (3-6), Kansas City (4-7), league favorite New Mexico State (4-7) and Grand Canyon (5-7, ineligible for post-season play as it continues its Div. I transition) round out the teams.
