UCSB Volleyball Drops First Road Match at UCLA

LOS ANGELES – For its first road match of the season, No. 11 UC Santa Barbara had a tough task in heading to Pauley Pavilion Wednesday to take on second-ranked UCLA in a match televised by the Pac-12 Network. Despite some high moments and strong runs of play, the Gauchos ended up dropping the match 3-0, 25-17, 25-20, 25-20.

The Bruins improved to 7-1 overall, with a perfect 5-0 mark in MPSF play. The Gauchos dropped to 6-2, 3-2 and had a three-match winning streak snapped

UCSB was led on offense by redshirt senior outside hitter Jacob Delson, who had a match-high 13 kills. However, the Gauchos hit just .195 as a team for the night and nobody besides Delson had more than six kills.

UCLA meanwhile hit .344 and out-aced UCSB 7-2 from the service line. Outside hitter Jake Arnitz and middle blocker Daenan Gyimah were the top offensive performers for the Bruins, notching 10 and eight kills, respectively.

UCSB is next in action on Friday night at the Thunderdome in a re-match against the Bruins. The Gauchos are 6-1 this season at home. First serve on Friday is scheduled for 7 p.m.

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!
