ANAHEIM — Freshman guard Ridge Shipley hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 13.7 seconds left and seventh-seeded Cal Poly completed its improbable march to the school’s first Big West Tournament championship, beating Cal State Northridge, 61-59, Saturday night and putting coach Joe Callero’s Mustangs into the NCAA tourney for the first time in school history.

Cal Poly (13-19) became the lowest seed to win the title in the tournament’s 39-year history. Shipley scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half and Chris Eversley had a team-high 18 and Dave Nwaba added 17.

Cal Poly also was the lowest-seeded team in the history of the tournament to eliminate both the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, and the lowest-seeded team to play for the Big West crown since 1994, when 10th-seeded UC Irvine lost to No. 1 New Mexico State.

Northridge women 73, Cal Poly 58: At Anaheim, Ashlee Guay scored 25 points and Cal State Northridge beat Cal Poly in the Big West women’s title game Saturday to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament.

The Matadors (18-14) won the Big West tournament for the first time to reach the Big Dance for the second time since they moved up to Division I before the 1990-91 season.

Guay also had six rebounds and six assists and Janae Sharpe added 17 points for top-seeded Northridge.

Cal Poly (18-13), the defending conference tournament champion, rallied to cut a 20-point deficit to six at 62-56 with 4:23 remaining, but Northridge finished an 11-2 run.

Ariana Elegado scored 21 of her 23 points in the second half for the Mustangs.
