The Gauchos are coming off of a stunning win over No. 1 seed Pacific and No. 2 seed UC Irvine to capture their fourth straight Big West title.
What's at Stake?
The UC Santa Barbara men's tennis team will to improve upon their 11-12 overall record before entering the NCAA tournament. A win against a 38th nationally ranked team could bump its NCAA tournament ranking pitting the Gauchos against a lower ranked team.

Cal currently stands at 10-10 overall and was recently bumped from the Pac-10 conference tournament in both singles and doubles quarterfinal matches on Friday.
