Walnut Creek, Calif. - The UCLA baseball team was selected to finish eighth in the Pacific-10 Conference in a vote by the conference's head coaches on Wednesday. The Bruins garnered 17 points in the vote, as defending Pac-10 champion Oregon State was chosen as the favorite to win this year's Pac-10 baseball title.

The Beavers received seven of nine first-place votes, earning 58 points overall. Second-place USC received one first place vote and 51 points overall, while Stanford and Arizona State tied for third with 46 points. The Cardinal collected the remaining first-place nod in this year's poll.

Arizona and California finished tied for fifth with 36 points, followed by Washington (22 points), UCLA, and Washington State (8 points) respectively.

Results of the poll were determined by awarding eight points for a first-place vote, seven points for a second-place vote, and so on. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.

UCLA begins its 2006 season on Friday, Feb. 3 against Fresno State at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Game time is set for 6 p.m. The Bruins open Pac-10 play on Friday, March 31 at Washington.
