Game of the Week 12/14


12/14: College Women’s Basketball: UCLA at UCSB This matchup furnishes visions of UCSB’s glorious past and hopeful future. UCLA coach Cori Close returns to her alma mater; she led the Gauchos into the NCAA tournament as a player and helped them reach the Sweet 16 in 2004 as Mark French’s top assistant. Now in her sixth year as head coach, Close took UCLA to the Sweet 16 last season, and the Bruins are currently ranked No. 9 in the nation. UCSB’s fortunes took a deep plunge for several years, but now Bonnie Henrickson, who visited the Sweet 16 twice as head coach at Kansas, is trying to lead the Gaucho women back to respectability. Close and Henrickson will jointly present a chalk talk at UCSB’s Corwin Pavilion on Tuesday evening before their teams take the floor Wednesday. 7pm. The Thunderdome, UCSB. $5-$12. Call 893-UCSB (8272) or visit ucsbgauchos.com.
