SANTA BARBARA, Calif.— The UCSB women's volleyball team will take the floor for the first time as a team tomorrow afternoon as the Gauchos open the 2022 season with an exhibition match at Loyola Marymount. The match begins at 1 PM at Gersten Pavilion in Los Angeles and it will be the first meeting between these two programs since 2015.
Gauchos On the Air
There will not be a live stream or live scoring for tomorrow's match.
Scouting the Gauchos
UCSB returns to the floor after a strong 2021 season that saw the Gauchos finish second in the Big West Conference with a 21-11 overall record and a historical 17-3 conference mark. From that team they return four all-conference members in senior middle Deni Wilson, junior libero Macall Peed, junior outside hitter Michelle Ohwobete, and senior right side hitter Tallulah Froley. This exhibition comes just under a week from the Gauchos season-opening tournament in Colorado where the team will face North Carolina and hosts Northern Colorado and Colorado State.
Scouting the Lions
LMU is coming off of a strong season as well where the Lions recorded a 17-11 overall record, but in a tough West Coast Conference were only able to go 8-10 and take 7th place. The Gauchos own the all-time record between the two teams in the regular season 29-11.
