UCSB loses a 5-set second round NCAA Tournament game to host Texas.

AUSTIN, TX.- UCSB almost shocked the heavily favored Texas Longhorns but the Gauchos came up short in a 3-2 second round NCAA Tournament game.

Behind a match-high 23 kills from senior star Lindsey Ruddins, the Gauchos led #2 Texas 2 sets to one but could not quite finish it off.

UCSB lost the fifth set 15-10 and ends a terrific season 23-6.

The future is bright for UCSB with freshman Tallulah Froley, Deni Wilson, Tasia Farmer and Romoni Vivao along with sophomore Zoe Fleck.
