Third-ranked UCLA travels to Cal State Northridge Friday night for a key MPSF match beginning at 7 p.m. at the Matadome.
The Bruins (2-4, 0-3) lost their fourth straight road match Wednesday night at UC Santa Barbara. The Bruins' skid ties the school record set in 1999.
"They (UCSB) played fantastic defense," said Head Coach Al Scates. "They dug better than we hit. We made some unforced errors in one-on-one situations. We just missed on several occasions."
On Wednesday, the Matadors (2-4, 1-1) lost 3-0 to top-ranked UC Irvine.
UCLA leads the series against CS Northridge, 52-7 and has won three straight at the Matadome.
Next week, the Bruins begin a six-match homestand. Their first home match is Jan. 24 against Pepperdine. On Jan. 27 they will host USC in the 30th Annual Kilgour Cup. Both matches begin at 7 p.m. in Pauley Pavilion.
