SAN DIEGO, Calif. - There are several ways for UC Santa Barbara fans to follow all of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament action this weekend in San Diego. The Gauchos will be on television, on the radio and online.
Friday afternoon from 2:20-2:50, head coach Lindsay Gottlieb and senior players Sha'Rae Gibbons, Jenna Green and Lauren Pedersen will take part in a news conference at San Diego State's Cox Arena. This press conference will be streamed live online. Check back at UCSBgauchos.com for links to the interviews.
Saturday's first round game against No. 2 seeded Stanford is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ESPN2. Check your local listings for the channel.
If you are a cable subscriber watching your ESPN/ESPN2 HD channel within a home market protection area, you will need to tune into your "original" ESPN/ESPN2 standard definition channel to view the UCSB game in its entirety. If you stay on the HD channel, you will receive the most compelling action from multiple games.
If you can't catch it on television, the game can be found on KTMS 990 AM with play-by-play by Steve Wendt and color commentary by former Lakers and UCSB alum Don Ford.
The campus radio station, KCSB 91.9 FM will also feature a live broadcast of the game, which will also be streamed online at kcsb.org.
If you are online, you can also follow the game on Gametracker or on ESPN360.
