Update: Gaucho's Fail to Make Elite 8

With a 3-1 lead eight minutes into the second half, defending NCAA champions and twelfth seeded UCSB lost 4-3 in OVERTIME to #5 Ohio State and failed to make the Elite 8 today in Ohio.

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, this loss is hard to believe but it shows that home field advantage is everything. Maybe they should have won some of those early games in the season...then again, everyone wants to beat the champion. It goes to show that there is parity in the top 20 teams in the NCAA and anything can happen on any day.

Congrats for a great season to the Gauchos -- even though we wanted a repeat. With younger players, don't count them out for the next several years -- a repeat may still be in the making. You heard it here first.
