The Gaucho Record
UC Santa Barbara enters this week's Big West games at UC Irvine and Long Beach State with an overall record of 8-9 and a league mark of 5-2. The Gauchos are tied with the Anteaters for second-place in the Big West, a half game behind Utah State, which is 6-2. UCSB won its only game last week, a 70-61 home victory over Cal Poly. The victory was the Gauchos third in a row and fourth in the last five games. The three-game winning streak is UCSB's first since they posted consecutive victories over Centenary, San Francisco and USC in late November and early December. This marks the first time this season that the Gauchos have won four out of five games.

Gauchos Overcome Field Goal Drought, Beat Cal Poly 70-61
In a span of more than 12 minutes that bridged the first half and the second half, UCSB went without a field goal on Saturday night against Cal Poly. The Gauchos, however, never fully relinquished the lead. With 15:04 remaining in the game, leading just 32-30, the Gauchos went on a 12-0 run to take a commanding 44-30 edge with 11:58 to go and the Mustangs never got closer than eight the rest of the way. Senior forward Mark Hull scored a game-high 18 points and had season-highs of 11 rebounds and three steals. Junior guard Branduinn Fullove had 16 points, seven rebounds and four assists. UCSB limited Cal Poly to 35.7% shooting for the game, just 33.3% in the second half. The Gauchos also had a season-high nine steals in another solid defensive effort

The Williams File
Bob Williams is in his fifth season as the head coach at UC Santa Barbara. Last year, he guided the Gauchos to a 20-11 overall record and an 11-7 mark in Big West Conference play. It was the school's first 20-win season since 1992. Most importantly, however, Williams led UCSB to its first Big West Conference Tournament Championship ever and first NCAA Tournament appearance in 12 years. In his first four-plus seasons in Santa Barbara, Williams' teams have posted a 70-62 overall record and a 47-26 record in Big West games. In 1998-99, his first year, the Gauchos went 15-13 overall and 12-4 in the Big West, winning the league's Western Division championship. That year, they closed the campaign by going 15-5 and Williams was selected Big West Coach of the Year. Prior to his arrival at UCSB, he spent eight years at UC Davis and in those eight years, his teams recorded 20 or more wins five times and a 158-76 record. In each of his last four seasons, the Aggies advanced to the NCAA Tournament and in 1997-98, Williams' final season, they went 31-2, won the NCAA Division II National Championship and he was named NABC Division II Coach of the Year. Including two seasons at Menlo College, Williams has a record of 259-162 at four-year schools.

The Opposition
UCSB and UC Irvine have played 55 times over the years. The Gauchos hold a 33-22 advantage in the series that dates back to 1968. Last season, the Anteaters won the two regular season games between the teams, 81-70 in Santa Barbara and 71-67 in Irvine, but the Gauchos bounced-back to beat UCI in the Big West Tournament Semifinals, 66-61. The victory in the tourney snapped a five-game Anteater winning streak over the Gauchos. Santa Barbara and Long Beach State have played 90 times in a series that dates back to 1952. Despite what the Gaucho media guide says, the 49ers hold a 43-47 advantage in the series. Last year, UCSB and Long Beach State split a pair of games with each team winning on its own floor. The 49ers won at the Pyramid by a score of 77-74 and the Gauchos won at the Thunderdome, 82-50. The 32-point margin was the largest in the series' long history.

The Long And Winding Road
UCSB fattened-up a bit at the Thunderdome over the last couple of weeks, going a perfect 3-0 in Big West games. The Gauchos are now a solid 6-1 at home this season and, dating back to the end of the 2000-01 campaign, they have won 18 of their last 21 home games. All of that is fine and dandy, but UCSB must now take to the unfriendly road for a pair of games. The Gauchos have not had much success away from home this season. Overall, Santa Barbara has posted a 2-8 record in games away from the Thunderdome. Of that 2-8 mark, 1-4 of it has come on neutral courts and 1-4 of it has come in true road games. UCSB's only road win this season came at the University of Idaho on January 9, 62-53. On the bright side, the Gauchos haven't played a bunch of rummies on the road, losing at Cal, BYU, Pepperdine, and Utah State.

Mystery Ends This Weekend
The Great Bracket Buster Mystery will end this Sunday. Bracket Buster Saturday, the 18-team one-day event scheduled for Saturday, February 22, will have its pairings announced on ESPN's College Basketball Tonight on Sunday, February 2. One, Tulsa at Gonzaga, is already set. UCSB will be a home team in the event. The 15 other teams involved are Creighton, Illinois-Chicago, Kent State, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Ball State, Bowling Green, Detroit, Fresno State, Hawaii, Illinois State, Norhern Iowa and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. All of the games will be televised in some format, either on ESPN, ESPN2 or as part of ESPN's Fullcourt Press.

Skultety Out For The Season With Torn ACL
For the first couple weeks of practice, senior forward Bray Skultety was making a very strong bid for the starting nod at the five spot. Skultety emerged over the final 25 games last season, becoming one of the Gauchos' top rebounders and a sparkplug off the bench. He was a great story. In only his second year of organized basketball, Skultety, a walk-on, had become a regular on a team that advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Awarded a scholarship prior to this season, Skultety's story kept getting better and better, but on November 1, the tale took a turn for the worse. In practice on that Friday, Skultety tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, ending his season and most likely his collegiate career. As a fifth-year senior, an injury redshirt year is a very remote possibility. In 2001-02, Skultety played in 26 games, starting one, averaging 2.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. He easily led the team in rebounds per 40 minutes played at 16.2, and despite his 6-foot-6 height, he ranked second on the team in blocked shots with 13.

Defense Keys Gaucho Surge
Offensively, UCSB will never be mistaken for the Dallas Mavericks, but there is more to winning than scoring points. Since allowing Weber State to make 59.3% of its shots in the season-opener on November 22, the Gauchos have held 15 out of the last 16 opponents below 50.0%. Of the 15 opponents below the 50.0% mark, 12 have been held below 45.0%, seven below 40.0% and three were below 35.0%. In Saturday's win, Cal Poly made just 20-of-56 shots from the field, 35.7%. In the last three games, all UCSB wins, Cal State Northridge, Pacific and Cal Poly made a combined 61-of-162 shots, 37.7%. In seven Big West games, the Gauchos have held their opponents to 40.2%. On January 11, Utah State made 51.9% of its shots from the field, but in the other six games, league opponents have made just 116-of-304 from the field, 38.1%. Overall, UCSB's field goal percentage defense is now at 41.4%, the best in the Big West. In league games only, they are limiting opponents to 40.2%.

What's The Point?
The point is, when your opponents don't shoot the ball well, they don't score that many points. During UCSB's three-game winning streak, the opposition has averaged just 57.3 points per game. Cal Poly need a game-ending three-point barrage to break the 60-point barrier, becoming just the second Gaucho opponent in the last seven games to score 60 or more in a game. In 17 games this season, UCSB opponents have been held under 70 points 13 times and under 60 points seven times. Overall, the Gauchos are allowing just 63.2 points per game and in seven league contests, they have given-up an average of 58.0 per game. In fact, since allowing an average of 77.7 points per game in the first three games of the season, all at the BP Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, the Gauchos have held opponents to an average of 60.1 points per game.

Gauchos Continue Three-Point Record Pace
After a three-game lull in three-point shooting, UCSB has bounced back by making 16-of-38, 42.1%, in the last two wins. Despite the three-game dip, the Gauchos continue on their record pace for three-point baskets made in a season. UCSB has made 130 three-point buckets through its first 17 games, an average of 7.6 per game. If they continue on their current pace and they play 30 games, the Gauchos would finish the year with between 225 and 230 three-point baskets, a new school record. Last season, UCSB made 201 three-pointers, a school record. Santa Barbara leads the Big West in both three-point field goals per game and three-point field goal percentage, 39.5%.

Free At Last
In a December 10 game at Cal, UCSB was 1-for-2 from the free throw line. Over a five game span, beginning with a December 7 game at Pepperdine and ending with a December 28 game in Arizona against Bucknell, the Gauchos were a combined 39-of-60 from the free throw line, 65.0%. In their last three games UCSB has rediscovered the free throw line, going 73-of-93, 78.5%. In fact, in the last four games, the Gauchos have attempted 116 free throws, an average of 29 per game. The surge in the past several games has helped to push UCSB over 70.0% on the year for the first time. The Gauchos are now hitting 71.0% from the free throw line, a high-water mark for the year.

Raising A Hull-A-Baloo
Senior forward Mark Hull scored a game-high 18 points in Saturday's win over Cal Poly. Hull also had the second double-double of his career as he collected a season-high 11 rebounds, the second-highest total in his career, moving him past the 500 rebound mark. With 18 points against the Mustangs, Hull became the fourth Gaucho player in history to eclipse the 1,400 point mark and he enters this week's games with 1,402, needing just 19 to move into third-place on the all-time list and 33 to move into second-place. In addition, with three three-point baskets against Cal Poly, Hull now has 194 and needs just three to become the school's all-time leader. On the season, Hull is averaging 14.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. He is shooting exactly 50.0% from the field overall and 46.1% from three-point range. In the last eight games, Hull has averaged 17.0 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 55.4% overall, 49.1% from three-point range and 74.0% from the free throw line. He is the Gauchos' leading scorer in Big West games at 16.4 points per game, 3.0 points per game more than the second-highest scorer. Hull has 47 three-point baskets on the year and he has made at least one in 16 of 17 games and nine straight. In fact, he has made two or more in nine straight games and 14 times this season. He has made three or more 12 times and he has a season-high five twice, once each against UC Riverside and Bucknell. Also, the Gauchos' ironman has extended his streak to 104 consecutive starts. He has started every game since becoming a Gaucho in 1999 and barring injury, he will lead the team in minutes played for the fourth year in a row, a first in the program's history. Hull has played 30 or more minutes 16 times this season.

Fulloving It
Junior guard Branduinn Fullove became the first Gaucho player this season to be honored as a Big West Player of the Week when he was selected co-Player of the Week two weeks ago. Fullove leads UCSB in scoring at 15.2 points per game and seems to have fully recovered from a strained groin that cost him two full games and limited his effectiveness in two others. In the last three games, however, he has averaged 16.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Also, since missing 13 consecutive three-point attempts over a three game span, Fullove has made 4-of-7 over his last two games, 57.1% to jump back over the 40.0% mark from three-point distance at 41.2%. He has made 28 three-point baskets on the season and 114 in his career ranking him sixth on UCSB's all-time list. The team's best free throw shooter, Fullove is now at 81.8% overall and over the last three games he has made 22 in a row. He has scored in double-digits 12 times in his 15 outings this season, including eight of his last nine. Fullove has had seven or more rebounds four times this year, including three times during UCSB's current three-game winning streak. His 22 rebounds in the last three games has increased his rebound average to a season-high 3.5 per game. The eight rebounds he had against Pacific on January 18 were a season-high. Also, Fullove is closing in on the 1,000 point mark for his career. He enters Thursday's game at UC Irvine with 956 points and needs 44 to become the 19th player in school history to hit the 1,000 point mark.

Keeping-Up With Jones
Junior guard Nick Jones remains UCSB's third-leading scorer at 12.9 points per game, but he has not shot the ball as well in recent games. While he is shooting 46.9% on the season, Jones has made just 13-of-29, 44.8%, in the last four games and 35-of-87, 40.2% in the last ten games. He has scored in double-figures 13 times in 17 games, but he has scored fewer than ten points four times in the last nine games. Jones scored a season-high 20 points in back-to-back games against Weber State and Jacksonville State to open the season, the first time in his career that he had accomplished the feat. He has also made at least one three-point basket in four straight games and 15 times in 17 games this year. He made a career-high four three-pointers in games against Jacksonville State and Cal State Fullerton. Jones' total of 29 three-point baskets is just seven short of his total for last season. He now has 85 career three-point baskets, ranking him tenth on UCSB's career list. He needs just five to move into eighth-place all-time. Jones is also UCSB's leading rebounder this year at 5.5 per game. He has led or tied for the team-lead in rebounding eight times and he has five or more boards ten times. With ten rebounds on November 30 against USF, Jones is one of only two Gaucho players this season to record double-digits in rebounds and a double-double in a game. Finally, he has made 11 of his last 12 free throws, 91.7%, to improve to 74.5% for the year.

What's Cooking?
Sophomore forward Casey Cook came into the 2002-03 season having scored ten or more points twice. In the third game of the season, he scored a career-high 16 points in a win over Centenary, giving him three career double-figure scoring efforts. Cook Thursday's game at UC Irvine having scored in double-figures three times in the last five games to improve his average on the season to 6.1 points per game. He went for ten points on January 9 at Idaho, 14 on January 16 against Cal State Northridge and then he scored ten on January 18 against Pacific. On Saturday, Cook had eight points in the Gauchos' win over Cal Poly. In the last five games, he is averaging 9.2 points per game and shooting 57.7% from the field. Cook is enters the week at 50.0% from the field for the year. In addition to his improved field goal shooting, the 6-foot-8 native of Sacramento has improved from the free throw line as well. While he is at 64.1% from the line for the year, he has hit 15-of-19 over the last four games, 78.9%. After coming off the bench for the first nine games of the season, Cook has been in the starting lineup for eight straight games. In those eight starts, he has averaged 5.0 rebounds per game. Finally, he has played 20 or more minutes in five straight games after playing 20 or more just five times in the first 12 games of the season.

Help Cecil, Help!
Freshman guard Cecil Brown has been a big help to the Gauchos this season, showing flashes of offensive brilliance while at the same time playing better defense than expected. Brown is fifth on the team in scoring at 5.5 per game. He has averaged 9.0 points and 3.3 rebounds per game during UCSB's current three-game winning streak. He has scored ten or more three times this season, going for a season-high 13 in just 15 minutes at Pepperdine on December 7, 12 points in ten minutes on November 22 against Weber State, and 11 points in 16 minutes on January 16 against Cal State Northridge. Brown has made 12 three-point baskets on the year and he has made at least one in each of the last three games, his longest stretch of the year. He is shooting 37.0% for the season but he has been better recently, shooting 42.1% in the last three games. Brown recorded a season-high six rebounds on January 18 against Pacific.

Just Joshing
Freshman guard Josh Davis is averaging 3.3 points and 1.8 rebounds per game. Since scoring a season-high 14 points against UC Riverside on January 2, he has scored just 14 points in the last six games. Also in the game against Riverside, Davis made all five of his field goal attempts and both of his three-point attempts. In the last six games, he has gone 3-of-18 from the field overall, 16.7%, and 0-for-3 from three-point range. Over that span, however, he has picked-up his game in other areas. Twice he has had a career-high three steals, once each against Pacific and Idaho, and he has had two or more rebounds in each of the last seven games. Since playing a season-low eight minutes on December 27 against Nebraska, he has averaged 17.2 minutes per game.

Atako Points The Way
Similar to last season, it appears that Jacoby Atako is coming alive during the second half of the season. With Atako, his effectiveness cannot always be measured in numbers. He is starting to play the type of defense that he did for most of last year and the results show in the team numbers. Atako is averaging 4.5 points and a team-leading 3.4 assists per game. He has averaged 5.0 assists in the last three games, averaging 6.0 points per game over that same span. Atako also leads the team in steals with 16 and he has made seven of his last nine free throws, 77.8%, and during UCSB's three-game winning streak he has shot 45.5%. Atako enters Saturday's game against Cal Poly with 267 career assists, ranking him eighth in UCSB history.

The Life Of Bryan
Junior forward Bryan Whitehead scored four points and had a pair of rebounds in the win over Cal Poly. For the first time since UCSB's December 10 win at Cal, he made two field goal attempts, going 2-for-2. In addition, Whitehead played well defensively and came-up with a pair of steals. On the year, he is averaging 2.8 points and 3.1 rebounds. He has taken just 40 shots in 305 minutes and has not taken more than three since the fourth game of the year when he launched a season-high five shots against San Francisco. Whitehead tallied a season-high six points in games against USF and Weber State and he had a season-high six boards against UC Riverside.

Ward Of The Court
Senior guard B.J. Ward is averaging 1.3 points per game, but since scoring a season-high seven points on December 27 against Nebraska, he has played in eight games, a total of 30 minutes, and has not scored. Over the eight-game span, Ward has attempted just three shots from the field and no rebounds. Finally, after playing ten or more minutes in each of the first four games of the season, he has played ten or more only once in the last 13 games.

Oliver's Twist
Sophomore walk-on guard Chrismen Oliver continues to give UCSB solid minutes as the backup at the point. He is averaging 1.6 points and 1.8 assists per game overall, but in Big West games, he is scoring 2.0 points per game and passing off for 2.0 assists per game. Oliver has had a career-high five assists twice, once each at Cal on December 10, and against UC Riverside on January 2. Overall, he has three or more assists five times, three times in Big West play, including Saturdays game against Cal Poly.
