SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – UC Santa Barbara will be hosting a viewing party of the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Tournament Selection Show at Meredith Field at Harder Stadium today at 1:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to attend.
The Gauchos, who finished the regular season with a 14-6-1 overall record and a second-place finish in the Big West Conference, are expected to receive an at-large bid into this year's tournament field. UCSB was ranked No. 10 in last week's NCAA Ratings Percentage Index, which bodes well for its chances at a national seed and a first round bye in the tournament.
UCSB is seeking its 10th consecutive berth into the NCAA Tournament field. The Gauchos were the 2004 College Cup runners-up and won the 2006 College Cup.
The bracket will be announced live at 1:30 p.m. on NCAA.com. The show will be displayed on the Harder Stadium video board.
