UCSB All Alone in First after 75-58 Win

Cal Poly can't keep up as four Gauchos reach double figures.

UCSB’s women’s basketball team wasted little time Saturday in San Luis Obispo, running away from Cal Poly in a 75-58 Big West Conference showdown. With the victory, the Gauchos claim sole possession of first place.

Ashlee Brown was six-for-six and scored a career-high 15 points to lead the Gauchos to their sixth consecutive win. Lauren Pedersen also finished with a career-high, scoring 13 points. Kat Suderman, playing before a hometown crowd, scored 14, and Sha’Rae Gibbons added 13, including eight-of-eight from the free-throw line.

UCSB is now 5-0 in league play, 10-6 overall. Cal Poly, which lost for the first time in league play, falls to 7-11 overall and 4-1 in conference.

The Gauchos travel to UC Davis for a game Thursday, followed by a clash at Pacific on Saturday.

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!
