Game of the Week: UCSB vs. Irvine Basketball

Gauchos Battle Anteaters in Thunderdome’s Game of the Year on February 8

The Gauchos are in the middle of the pack in the Big West Conference and will take on the first-place Anteaters in what figures to be the game of the year at the Thunderdome. UC Irvine made a run in the NCAA tournament last year, and a UCSB victory would be a huge boost going into the latter half of conference play. Sat., Feb. 8, 7pm. The Thunderdome, UCSB. $8-$29.
