Game of the Week

2/4: College Men’s Basketball: Hawai‘i at UCSB: The Gauchos played their Big West opener at Hawai‘i on January 9, and the Rainbows outscored them 7-0 in the final two minutes to win 65-58. Late-game lulls also cost the Gauchos in losses to UC Irvine and Long Beach State. Finally, in a return match at Irvine last Saturday, they reversed the trend. They outscored the conference-leading Anteaters 20-4 down the stretch in a 76-60 runaway win. Thursday night’s game is another opportunity for UCSB to prove it’s better than its record (3-4 Big West, 9-11 overall) against a formidable Hawai‘i team (5-1, 16-3). The Rainbows had an eight-game winning streak snapped by Long Beach last weekend. Cal State Fullerton, sitting in last place, visits UCSB Saturday night. 7pm. The Thunderdome, UCSB. $11-$14.
