Men's basketball coach Bob Williams, women's basketball coach Carlene Mitchell and men's volleyball coach Rick McLaughlin are the featured guests on this week's Talk'n Gauchos radio show, which will air live on AM 1290 KZSB from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday night.
As always, the show will broadcasted live from the Beachside Bar Café on beautiful Goleta Beach and will be hosted by The Voice of the Gauchos, Gerry Fall.
Williams, UCSB's all-time men's basketball coaching victory leader, will lead his team in a two-game homestand this week against UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton. The Gauchos will enter Thursday night’s game against the Highlanders with 16-7 overall record, 7-3 in the Big West. The last time the teams met, UCSB escaped Riverside with a 68-65 overtime decision. On Saturday, the Gauchos will be looking to even the season series after narrowly falling to the Titans 74-72 in Fullerton.
Mitchell's Gaucho women's team, which dropped a season-high 80 points in a victory over Long Beach State, travels to UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton this weekend. UCSB will be going for the season sweep over the Highlanders on Thursday.
McLaughlin and the men’s volleyball team have made a jump in the national rankings going from the seventh to the fifth spot after downing Cal State Northridge and then No. 6 Long Beach State last week in Rob Gym. This weekend, the Gauchos will be traveling north to play Stanford and Pacific. In January, UCSB swept the Tigers and pulled off a five-set win over the Cardinal.
