LA JOLLA, Calif. - The University of California San Diego women's volleyball team will play this week's home matches at Main Gym on the La Jolla campus.
UC San Diego hosts two California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) matches including San Francisco State on Friday, Sept. 14, and Cal State East Bay on Saturday, Sept. 15. First serve for both contests is 7 p.m. and admission is free for all.
RIMAC Arena, the volleyball team's official home, is in the final stages of a renovation which features new seating and a 50-foot wide video board. The Sept. 25 home match against Cal State LA will be the first athletic event in the refurbished venue.
Main Gym gained notoriety as the practice facility for the 1992 United States Men's Olympic Basketball Team, more commonly known as the Dream Team, which consisted of NBA superstars Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, and Patrick Ewing, among others. At the Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, the Dream Team defeated opponents by an average of 44 points en route to winning a gold medal.
Main Gym also serves as the home arena for UC San Diego's fencing team.
Parking for this week's matches is available in Lot 103. Parking passes are required on Friday and can be purchased from the machines in the lot. Parking is free on Saturday.
