Gregory's Gauchos are off to their best start since 2004 and are receiving votes in the AVCA Top-25 poll.

Her setter, Dana Vargas, will join her on the Talk'n Gauchos program, hosted by basketball play-by-play announcer Steve Wendt and former Jim Rome Show producer Travis Rodgers. Vargas, a junior, is fifth all-time in career assists at UCSB.

Rounding out the guests will be women's basketball director of operations Araceli Gil, a local legend in her own right. Gil had an extremely successful career at Santa Barbara High and returned home last season to join Lindsay Gottlieb's coaching staff.
