At 8:00pm on Saturday, January 21st, the UCSB Men’s Basketball team hosts Long Beach State in a pivotal Big West match up. The Gauchos (4-1) won an important home game against Cal State Northridge on Thursday night to keep pace with the undefeated Long Beach State 49ers (6-0). Tonight’s match up may serve as a preview to the Big West Championship game at the end of the season as both UCSB and Long Beach State have proven to be the most dominant teams in the conference. The Gauchos have recently named John R. Wooden Award nominee Orlando Johnson, while the 49ers will be led by last season’s Big West Player of the Year Casper Ware. Long Beach State is undefeated and the Gauchos are undefeated at home. One of those streaks will end tonight at the Thunderdome.
Joe Broder, Josh Fiacco, and Peter Hammon will have the call live from the Thunderdome. The pregame show starts at 7:45pm, and tip-off is scheduled for 8:00pm.
