No. 3-Ranked UCLA Volleyball Sweeps UCSB

No. 11 UC Santa Barbara men's volleyball suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of No. 3 UCLA on Wednesday night at Pauley Pavilion, 25-22, 25-15, 25-18.

The match was originally slated for early January, but was rescheduled due to travel complications caused by the tragic Montecito mudslides. UCSB dropped to 9-8 overall while UCLA improved to 20-5 with their fifth straight win.

Sophomore opposite Keenan Sanders had 11 kills to lead the Gauchos in kills for the 11th time in the last 12 matches. Junior middle blocker Connor Drake added six kills on 11 swings, but as a team the Gauchos hit just .099 for the evening.

UCLA meanwhile finished with a .446 team hitting percentage, led by Christian Hessaenhauer's 11.

The Gauchos resume Big West Conference play this weekend, taking on No. 8 CSUN in a home-and-home series. UCSB will travel to the Matadome on Friday night and then host the Matadors at Rob Gym on Saturday night. The Gauchos are 2-2 thus far in league action.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
