UCSB enters the tournament as the #2 overall seed with a 21-8 overall record. Led by Big West Player of the Year "Big Al" Williams & 6th Man of the Year Kyle Boswell, the Gauchos look to punch their ticket once again to the Big Dance at this year's conference tournament. 

Students may pick up their free ticket from the UCSB Representative at the Will Call window at the Honda Center ticket booth (East side of the venue) prior to any game that UCSB participates in. To claim their free student ticket, students must present a valid & current Student I.D. to the representative at the window. The ticket is valid for the reserved student section situated behind the team bench of every UCSB game. In addition to free tickets, all students in attendance will receive a complimentary Gold T-shirt courtesy of UCSB Athletics!

Those students in the Loco Rewards program who attend the tournament will also be reimbursed for their parking expenses while at the venue! To receive the reimbursement, simply return the parking receipt (given to you by the attendant at the entrance to the parking lot) to the Athletics Ticket Office March 17th - 19th. The ticket office is open from 9AM – 4PM daily, and is located on the 1st floor of the ICA Building on campus.

Student tickets are limited by the venue for each game so early arrival for ticket pickup is greatly encouraged. Doors will open an hour prior to tipoff of the first session game. Questions regarding free student tickets can be directed towards the Marketing Department at
