Ending the NCAA Championship weekend on a high note, No. 7 UCSB (19-14) won the seventh place game after cruising to an 8-2 win over No. 13 San Diego State (18-19).
A fortified defensive effort from the Gauchos frustrated the Aztecs who were shutout in three of the four quarters. In the cage, Mackenzie Brokaw had her best game of the weekend with 10 saves and a steal, as UCSB combined for eight steals and four field blocks as a team.
