April 15, 2011

Santa Barbara, Calif - Seniors Jill Damion and Michelle Murphy will be taking the court at home for the last time in their UCSB careers this weekend as the Gauchos take on LMU Saturday and No. 60 UC Irvine Sunday, to wrap up regular season play.

The Gauchos (11-9 overall, 4-3 in the Big West) look to build momentum for the Big West tournament by getting two wins this weekend.

"We want to finish with a winning record for the season both overall and in conference," said head coach Peter Kirkwood. "So you can see we have plenty of incentive to win."

UCSB also has a shot at securing the No. 4 seed in the Big West Tournament with a win over UCI Sunday.

The match against LMU on Saturday will begin at 1 p.m. and the Big West Conference match against UCI on Sunday, will begin at 11 a.m. Both matches will be held at the Robertson Gymnasium Courts on campus.
