Sports Highlights: Jan. 17-24


The warm-up of the weather did not come a day too soon for the soccer teams of Santa Barbara High and San Marcos, who will be playing a Channel League double-header this evening (Thu., Jan. 17) at Warkentin Stadium.

UCSB’s Robertson Gym will be heated up Friday night by the volleyball rivalry between the Gauchos and visiting UCLA Bruins.

The Gaucho men’s basketball team hosts Cal Poly at 4 p.m. Saturday (televised on Fox Prime Ticket). UCSB sophomore Alan “Big Al” Williams leads the Big West Conference and ranks No. 8 nationally with nine double-doubles.

Westmont College’s women, coming off an upset of NAIA No. 1-ranked Vanguard on the road, hope to stay hot at home Saturday against Hope International. SBCC’s basketball teams will play their first home games since December on Saturday against Cuesta.
