A difficult road schedule of non-conference games awaits the UC Santa Barbara men's basketball team. The Gauchos released their 2012-13 schedule.
"Once again we are playing a very challenging schedule," head coach Bob Williams said to the official UCSB Athletics website. "Our road schedule is particularly challenging, especially for a young team, but it will set us up for some great home games in the future."
The Gauchos, who will have just one senior to go along with seven freshmen and three sophomores, will play seven non-conference road games to go along with five non-conference home games.
The regular season non-conference home slate includes San Diego (Nov. 21), Wyoming (Nov. 28), an ESPNU Bracket Buster opponent (Feb. 23), The Master's College (Nov. 17) and San Diego Christian (Dec. 15). Santa Barbara will also host a Nov. 1 exhibition game against La Verne.
The road schedule includes games at LSU (Nov. 9), Illinois State (Nov. 12), Boise State (Nov. 24), Santa Clara (Dec. 1), San Diego State (Dec. 5), Cal (Dec. 18) and on Dec. 21 another match-up against Wyoming. LSU and Cal are scheduled to return their games and play UCSB at the Thunderdome in 2013-14. San Diego State will join the Big West that same year and should pay a visit to Santa Barbara as well.
The conference schedule will open on Dec. 29 when the Gauchos travel to the possible league-favorite, Cal State Fullerton. Central Coast rival Cal Poly will visit the Thunderdome on Jan. 19 and Hawai'i makes its Santa Barbara debut on Jan. 26. The Gaucho play at Cal Poly on Feb. 16 and at Hawai'i on Feb. 28).
