KZSC Sports Director Makes History for UCSC & Athletics

Wednesday, January, 11, 2018, my colleague Austin Duncan & I became the FIRST pair of commentators ever to do a live play-by-play call on @UCSCAthletics live stream, the FIRST time in @UCSC’s school’s history. Our Men’s Banana Slug Basketball team defeated the visiting Bethesda Flames by nearly 30 points at our home, Kaiser Permanente Arena (KPA) in Downtown Santa Cruz. It was truly a blessing calling this game as we broke the barrier for our Athletics program on top of this being what always I dreamt of doing as a kid. I would like to thank my caller Austin Duncan, my boss Embele Awipi, KPA Staff (Daniel James Howell, Elliot Sidley, Jack Benson), @opersucsc/UCSC Athletics staff & my student workers.
