Time Change For February 27 Game Against LBSU
UC Santa Barbara's February 27 home game against Long Beach State, scheduled for 5:30 p.m., has been switched to 5:00 p.m. to accommodate television. The game will be carried live as part of the Big West Conference's Fox Sports Net 2 package. The UCSB-Long Beach State contest is one of three Gaucho appearances on Fox Sports Net 2 this year. Santa Barbara's January 30 game at UC Irvine and its February 20 game at Cal Poly will also be televised. Both of the road games begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Gaucho Record
UC Santa Barbara enters this week's Big West game against Cal Poly with an overall record of 7-9 and a league mark of 4-2. The Gauchos are tied with Utah State for second-place in the Big West, a half game behind UC Irvine, which is 4-1. UCSB swept a pair of home games this weekend, defeating Cal State Northridge on Thursday, 77-59, and Pacific on Saturday, 67-52. The wins over the Matadors and Tigers marks the first time the Gauchos have won back-to-back games since they recorded consecutive victories over Centenary, San Francisco and USC on November 24, November 30 and December 3.

Defense & First Half The Keys As Gauchos Win Two Straight
Clearly, defense has been the key as UCSB has opened Big West play with a solid 4-2 record. The 4-2 mark comes on the heels of a five-game Gaucho losing streak. In the past six games, UCSB has allowed more than 60 points just once and over that span, they allowed a total of 345 points, an average of 57.5 points per game. Also over that span, Gaucho opponents have shot 41.0% from the field. In last weekend's back-to-back wins over Cal State Northridge and Pacific, UCSB allowed just 111 points, 55.5 per game, and the two opponents made just 41-of-106 shots from the floor, 38.7%. Another key to the weekend wins was the first half surge in each game. The Gauchos took halftime leads of 16 points in each game and never led by fewer than 13 points in either second half.

Fullove Selected Big West Co-Player Of The Week
Junior guard Branduinn Fullove was selected Big West co-Player of the Week this week following his performances in UCSB's wins over Cal State Northridge and Pacific last weekend. In the two games, Fullove averaged 16.0 points and a team-leading 7.5 rebounds per game. He shot 47.1% overall and he made 14-of-14 free throw attempts. Fullove shared the award with UC Irvine's Mike Hood.

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 69-61 overall record and a 46-26 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 258-161 at four-year schools.

Skultety's Season Ends With Knee Injury
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.

Getting Defensive
UCSB has used a stingy defense to thrust itself into the thick of the Big West Conference race. The Gauchos have held five of their six league opponents to fewer than 60 points. In addition, in six Big West games, five opponents have shot below 45.0% from the field. In last weekend's wins, Cal State Northridge and Pacific were a combined 41-of-106, 38.7%. On the season, UCSB opponents are now shooting 41.8% from the floor and since allowing Weber State to hit 59.3% from the field in the season opener, the Gauchos have limited opponents to a mere 40.6% from the field. Weber State and Utah State are the only teams that have made 50.0% or more of their shots against the Gauchos. UCSB has held 11 of 16 opponents under 45.0% shooting and six of the 11 were held under 40.0%. Overall, opponents are averaging 63.3 points per game, but six Big West opponents are averaging just 57.5 points per outing.

The Other Side Of The Court
While they didn't experience an offensive explosion last weekend, the Gauchos did show some life on that end of the court. In the win over Cal State Northridge, UCSB scored 77 points, the most they had scored in a game since they went for a season-high 84 on November 24 against Centenary. By scoring 77 and 67 in back-to-back games, it marked the first time since early December that the Gauchos scored 65 or more in consecutive games. Granted, these are modest achievements, but at least they show some progress. On the year, the Gauchos are now shooting a solid 46.3% overall and 39.2% from three-point range, but they are averaging just 66.1 points per game overall and 64.2 points per game in league play.

Gauchos Continue Three-Point Record Pace
After a three-game lull in three-point shooting, UCSB bounced back by making nine in its game against Pacific. Despite the three-game dip, the Gauchos continues on their record pace for three-point baskets made in a season. UCSB has made 123 three-point buckets through its first 16 games, an average of 7.7 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.

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 two games UCSB has rediscovered the free throw line, going 48-of-64, 75.0%. In fact, in the last three games, the Gauchos have attempted 87 free throws, an average of 28 per game.

The Gauchos And Mustangs
In a series that dates back to 1938, UCSB and Cal Poly have played 77 times. The Gauchos hold a substantial edge with a record of 52-25. Santa Barbara won both regular season games over Cal Poly last season, winning in San Luis Obispo by a score of 74-67 and at the Thunderdome by a 69-66 tally. The Gauchos also topped the Mustangs in the first round of the Big West Tournament in Anaheim by a score of 74-65. UCSB, in fact, has not lost to Cal Poly during the Bob Williams era. The Gauchos have gone 9-0 against the Mustangs in Willliams' four seasons, posting perfect 4-0 records at home and on the road.

Dome, Sweet Dome
UCSB has spent a lot of time on the road this season and they have the losses to prove it. At home, however, the Gauchos are a different team. With its wins over Cal State Northridge and Pacific, UCSB is now 5-1 in home games. While the loss was a tough one to absorb, a 57-55 overtime defeat at the hands of Cal State Fullerton, the wins have generally been by comfortable margins. In their Thunderdome victories over San Francisco, USC, UC Riverside, Cal State Northridge and Pacific this season, the Gauchos have outscored their victims by 23, 16, 16, 18 and 15 points. UCSB's average margin of victory in those games is 17.6 points per game. Last year, the Gauchos recorded a 10-2 record at the Thunderdome and dating back to the 2000-01 season, they have won 17 of the last 20 games at home.

Raising A Hull-A-Baloo
Senior forward Mark Hull enters Saturday's game against Cal Poly with 1,384 career points, the fifth most in UCSB history. Hull needs 16 points to move past York Gross and into fourth-place on the all-time list. Gross finished his Gaucho career with 1,399 points. Only three UCSB players, Carrick DeHart, Lucius Davis and Doug Rex have scored more than 1,400 points. In addition, Hull is closing-in on the school record for three-point baskets. With five in the two games last weekend, he now has 191 in his career, second all-time and one more than Idris Jones. Hull needs just six more three-pointers to move past Carrick DeHart and into first on UCSB's career list. Also, the Gauchos' ironman has extended his streak to 103 consecutive starts. He has started every game since becoming a Gaucho in 1999. Hull is currently averaging 14.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. He scored just eight points in Saturday's win over Pacific, snapping a streak of seven straight double-figure scoring games. In 16 games, Hull has scored ten or more points 13 times. He had a season-high 23 points in the opener against Weber State and he has scored 20 or more points four times, including three times in the past seven games. Hull leads the Gauchos with 44 three-point baskets on the season. He has made at least one three-pointer in 15 of 16 games and in eight straight. In fact, Hull has made two or more threes in each of the last eight outings, hitting 26-of-52 over that span, 50.0%. He has made three or more three-point baskets 11 times this season and he has made a season-high five twice, against Bucknell and Cal State Fullerton.

Keeping-Up With Jones
Junior guard Nick Jones bounced back from his lowest scoring game of the season, a five-point performance in the win over Cal State Northridge, with an outstanding 14-point, five rebound effort in the win over Pacific. Jones made 5-of-7 shots overall, including 2-for-2 from three-point territory. He has now scored in double-figures 13 times in 16 games and the 14 points represented Jones' second highest output in the last eight games. He scored a season-high 20 points in games against Weber State and Jacksonville State, the first two games of the season. It marked the first time in his career that Jones had scored 20 points in two straight games. He has also made at least one three-point basket in three straight games and 14 times in 16 games this year. He made a career-high four three-pointers in games against Jacksonville State and Cal State Fullerton. Jones' total of 28 three-point baskets is just eight short of his total for last season. He now has 84 career three-point baskets, ranking him tenth on UCSB's career list. He needs just six to move into eighth-place all-time. Jones is also UCSB's leading rebounder this year at 5.6 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 the only Gaucho player this season to record double-digits in rebounds and a double-double.

Fulloving It: Fullove Named Big West Co-Player Of The Week
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 this week. Fullove was instrumental in helping UCSB to wins last weekend over Cal State Northridge and Pacific. Against Northridge, he had 15 points, seven rebounds, two steals and one assists, and while he was just 3-of-9 shooting from the field, he did make all nine of his free throw attempts. In Saturday's win over Pacific, Fullove had 17 points, the most he had scored in a league game this year, and he collected a season-high eight rebounds. In addition, for the first time since his return from injury, Fullove shot the ball well, making 5-of-8 shots from the field and 2-of-5 from three-point range. In the three games prior to Saturday's game, he had made just 10-of-28 shots from the field overall, 35.7%, and 1-of-14 from beyond the three-point arc. Fullove missed the first two games of Big West play with a strained groin and returned four games ago. With his performances last weekend, Fullove has regained the team-lead in scoring at 15.1 points per game. He has also upped his rebounding average to a season-high 3.3 per game. When he made his first three-pointer against Pacific, Fullove snapped a streak of 13 straight missed threes. He now has 112 career three-point baskets, the sixth most in school history. Also, Fullove is closing in on the 1,000 point mark for his career. He enters Saturday's game against Cal Poly with 940 points and needs 60 to become the 19th player in school history to hit the 1,000 point mark. Fullove scored his season-high of 23 points in a December 3 win over USC. He has scored ten or more in 11 of his 14 games and 20 or more twice.

What's Cooking?
Sophomore forward Casey Cook came into the 2002-03 season having scored ten or more points twice. In 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 enters Saturday's game against Cal Poly having scored in double-figures three times in the last four games to improve his average on the season to 5.9 points per game. He went or ten points on January 9 at Idaho, 14 on January 16 against Cal State Northridge and then he scored ten on Saturday against Pacific. Cook has significantly improved his offensive efficiency as well. In the last four games, he has made 13-of-17 shots from the field overall, 76.5%, 1-for-1 from three-point territory. In his last three games, Cook has also stepped-it-up from the free throw line, making 11-of-15 shots, 73.3%. Since coming off the bench for the first nine games of the season, Cook has been in the starting lineup for seven straight games. In those seven starts, he has averaged 5.0 rebounds per game. Finally, he has played a season-high 28 minutes in each of the last two games.

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 5.4 per game, but he has had a couple of offensive explosions that bode well for the future. In the opener against Weber State, Brown scored 12 points in just ten minutes, making 4-of-5 shots from the floor and 3-of-4 from three-point territory. On December 7 at Pepperdine, he scored a season-high 13 points in just 15 minutes, making 3-of-5 three-pointers. In the last three games, Brown has scored a total of 22 points and has grabbed eight rebounds. Additionally, he has drilled 5-of-6 free throw attempts. In the last two games, Brown has hit the offensive glass hard taking four offensive boards. In the wins over Cal State Northridge and Pacific, he went 3-of-8 from three-point range and 7-of-16 overall to boost his shooting percentage to 37.2%.

Just Joshing
Freshman guard Josh Davis is starting to heat up along with a number of Gauchos as league play continues. After scoring 18 points in the first four games of the year, Davis cooled off, scoring just ten points in the next six games. During the last six games, however, he has scored 26 points and has been on fire from the free throw line. Including a 14 point affair against UC Riverside, Davis has gone 10-of-14 from the line. However, after hitting two three-pointers in that same game against Riverside, Davis has yet to hit another going 0-for-3. Davis has been a more steady rebounder during the last several games as well. In the last six games he has grabbed 16 rebounds. Defensively, Davis is also emerging. In the last four games he has a team high seven steals including a season-high three against Pacific and at Idaho.

Atako Points The Way
Similar to last season, it appears that Jacoby Atako is coming alive during the second half of the season. Six games ago Atako's scoring average had dipped to 4.1 but he has increased it to 4.5, due in large part to an 11 point game against Cal State Northridge. The Northridge game was arguably Atako's best game this season as he went a perfect 3-for-3 from the floor and connected on 5-of-6 free throws. He also dished out seven assists that game and pulled down three rebounds. In Saturday's game against Pacific, it was a different side of Atako that was impressive. Atako completely shut down Pacific's leading scorer, Demitrius Jackson, and helped his team hold the Tigers' top four scorers to a combined 19 points. Atako enters Saturday's game against Cal Poly with 265 career assists, ranking him eighth in UCSB history.

The Life Of Bryan
After starting the first nine games this season, junior forward Bryan Whitehead has come off the bench in each of the last seven. Whitehead's scoring average has dropped to 2.7 and his rebounds per game have been limited to 3.1. However, Whitehead has connected on all of his free throws in the last four games and recorded a pair of steals. Whitehead has been most valuable cleaning the offensive glass. In the last six games he has pulled down 12 offensive rebounds. Additionally, Whitehead hasn't turned the ball over in four games, an improvement after mishandling committing 12 turnovers in the first 12 games.

Ward Of The Court
Senior guard B.J. Ward's minutes have increased a bit in Big West Conference play. After playing only five minutes in the first three games, Ward has been on the floor for 17 minutes in the last three. He has only taken two shots during that span and did not connect on either, however he did grab an offensive rebound and dish out an assist.

Oliver's Twist
Sophomore guard Chrismen Oliver has become quite a little spark plug for the guard heavy Gauchos. In the last six games he has averaged 14 minutes per game and has worked his scoring average up to 1.6 points per game. Also, since passing off for just three assists in the first five games of the season, Oliver has dished out 21 in his last ten games, 2.1 per game.

On The Horizon
After Saturday's home game against Cal Poly, the Gauchos will hit the road for a pair of games against Southern California rivals UC Irvine and Long Beach State. On Thursday, January 30, UCSB will travel to UC Irvine to do battle with the Big West's first-place team. The Gauchos knocked the Anteaters out of last season's league tournament en route to their first conference championships. The game at Irvine will be on at 5:30 p.m. and will be televised by Fox Sports Net 2. On Saturday, February 1, the Gauchos travel to Long Beach State for a 7:30 p.m. game at the Pyramid. The UCSB-Long Beach State rivarly has consistently been one of the best in the Big West and it is also one of the longest running.
