SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Already armed with one of the preeminent women's basketball programs on the west coast, UCSB Athletics is pleased to announce that it is adding a recognizable voice from the Los Angeles airwaves to broadcast Gaucho games for the 2010-11 season.
Josh Suchon, who does pre and post-game Los Angeles Dodgers broadcasts, will be the voice of the 13-time Big West champion UCSB women's basketball team this upcoming season. All UCSB women's basketball games will be carried live on AM 990 KTMS in Santa Barbara.
Suchon brings a wealth of experience to UCSB games aside from working every Dodgers game. He has broadcast all things from college basketball, to college football, to minor league baseball to high school football.
"I am thrilled to be joining the UCSB broadcast team," Suchon said. "To be involved with a program like the UCSB women's basketball team and all of their winning traditions is extremely exciting."
UCSB returns three all-conference honorees from last season in Emilie Johnson, Mekia Valentine and Sweets Underwood while transfers Kelsey Adrian and Angelei Aguirre will play their first games in the blue and gold this year. Head Coach Lindsay Gottlieb, the 2008-09 Big West Coach of the Year, returns for her third season.
The Gauchos begin with an exhibition on Thursday, Nov. 4 vs. Cal State Monterey Bay at 7 p.m. in the Thunderdome. Season tickets are still available by calling (805) 893-UCSB or by clicking here.
Gaucho Fund members also have access to the revamped Founders Room which includes pregame and halftime hospitality and free parking! With soft drinks, beer, wine, food and networking available each game, fans won't want to miss out.
The One Donation Is Gold system allows Gaucho Fund donors access to premium seating at all venues with their donation to support UCSB student-athletes.
