SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The UC Santa Barbara women's volleyball squad will open its 2010 home season Monday night (7 p.m.) at Robertson Gym on campus as it takes on Cincinnati in a non-conference match.
The Gauchos (1-1) are coming off a split this past weekend at the Cal Molten Classic in Berkeley, losing in three sets against No. 11 Cal and sweeping Manhattan College.
The Bearcats (2-1) are on a four-match West Coast road trip. They defeated Northern Colorado 3-1 and swept Cal State Northridge of the Big West before losing 3-0 vs. San Diego State at SDSU's tourney Aug. 27 and 28.
Both UCSB and Cincinnati are receiving votes in the AVCA Coaches Top 25 Poll which was released today.
Tonight's match will be played in historic Rob Gym in order for the floor at the Thunderdome to be resurfaced.
Tickets are available at the door or by visiting the Athletics Ticket Office in the Intercollegiate Athletics Building on campus until 4 p.m. Ticket prices are $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for youths 13 years of age and younger. As always, UCSB students are free with a valid ID.
If you can't make it to the match, live stats will be available online through Gametracker.
Following tonight's match, the Gauchos hit the road and don't play at home again until Oct. 1 vs. Long Beach State. The latest Legend of the 'Dome will be unveiled at that match.
