Pretty much everything has been awesome so far this season for UC Santa Barbara’s men’s volleyball team. The Gauchos are 13-3, 1-0 in the super-competitive Big West, and remained No. 5 in this week’s AVCA Division I-II Men’s Volleyball Poll.

UCSB is home for UC San Diego in a Big West match on Friday and then is off a week before entertaining Lindenwood of the MIVA. And then March 14-15 come back-to-back matches against top-ranked and unbeaten Long Beach State.
