Arizona women’s basketball will hit the road to Santa Barbara to take on UC Santa Barbara on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 3 p.m. MT.

The Wildcats will look to bounce back from a weekend where they fell in two back-to-back games in overtime at the Iona College Tip-Off Tournament in New York.

Junior Candice Warthen leads the team in scoring with 21.5 ppg. Senior Kama Griffitts and freshman Dejza James are also averaging double-digit scoring with 15 and 10.5 ppg, respectively.

Santa Barbara started off its season with a 76-54 victory over Occidental on Sunday.

In 2012-13, UCSB played in the postseason for 16th time in the past 17 seasons by competing in its fifth WNIT. The Gauchos finished the season 16-17 and 11-7 in Big West play.

Nicole Nesbit leads the team in scoring after posting 17 points and grabbing six rebounds versus Occidental.

Arizona leads the all-time series with UCSB, 8-6, but the teams are tied 3-3 in Santa Barbara. The Wildcats won the last matchup 54-47 in Tucson in 2008.
