Classic is still a cause, despite records

SACRAMENTO — The Battle for the Basement — more popularly known as the Causeway Classic — apparently has lost none of its luster, despite the fact that UC Davis (1-9) and Sacramento State (2-8) football teams enter Hornet Stadium on Saturday with a total of three wins. There was little mention of the disappointing seasons at […]

Aggie men slam Sunbirds

While this one never really felt in doubt, visiting Fresno Pacific — despite its Division II stature — provided the UC Davis men’s basketball team with some tests that the locals plan to take forward. Playing before 1,088 fans at The Pavilion, the Aggies ran their record to 2-1 with a convincing 76-46 victory. But […]

Forget the records. Causeway Classic foes will mean business

Saturday has become The Season for the UC Davis and Sacramento State football teams. When the two foundering squads kick off at 2:30 p.m. at Hornet Stadium, the Causeway “Classic” will determine who dwells in the Big Sky Conference cellar. The fact that UCD and Sac State have but three wins between them will be forgotten — […]

UCD’s Fox providing energy, early spark from starting role

A sixth man no more. After a brilliant season in which Josh Fox came off the bench to help ignite the UC Davis men to a 25-7 record and a Big West Conference basketball championship, the smooth-moving senior has cracked the Aggie starting lineup this winter. Fox, a 6-foot-6 swingman who is a native of […]

Aggies again lick their wounds ahead of Causeway Classic

If it wasn’t so sad, it would be funny. After the UC Davis football team finished its home finale on Saturday, media types were informed that one of their choices for postgame interviews was injured and unavailable. The Aggies had just dropped a spirited 55-38 decision to visiting Cal Poly.UCD fell to 1-9 and 1-6 in Big […]

Entertaining, energized Aggies still fall to Cal Poly

It wasn’t an Aggie victory. However, this 55-38 Cal Poly decision (in which it took back the Golden Horseshoe trophy) was totally entertaining. While the Mustangs (4-6, 3-4) rang up 669 yards of offense, the UC Davis football team wasn’t exactly chopped liver, with 496 yards of its own. The Big West rivals went back-and-forth early […]

Late-game collapse ruins Aggie men’s party

“They’re disappointed, I’m disappointed,” UC Davis men’s basketball coach Jim Les said after Friday’s stunning late-game meltdown led to a 79-71 overtime loss to visiting North Dakota State. “The beauty of it is we get to play again Sunday. We’ll forget about this one quickly.” With 2:10 remaining in what was once a festive opening-night […]

In it for a while, young UCD women fall to Stanford

One thing is for sure, the UC Davis women don’t back off a good basketball opponent. Each of the past two seasons, the Aggies have come face-to-face with nine-time national champion Connecticut. Stanford — which has become an annual test for UCD — pranced into town Friday with its No. 14 ranking and got a […]

Squyres will have left her mark on Aggie volleyball

“It’s definitely a blessing for me to have her on the team. She’s been a leader the last two years on the court with her ability to score points. It was nice to come in with her already there.” Those are the words of second-year UC Davis volleyball coach Dan Conners, who was talking about […]

Gould responds to ‘out of his element’ critique

Unfortunately for Aggie Nation, it has a football program that has won just three of its last 20 games. When a program that once won more than two decades’ worth of consecutive conference championships falls on such hard times, there has to be a reason (or reasons). It’s easy to look at Ron Gould’s 8-24 […]

Aggie QB Scott probably done for year; Spencer takes reins

C.J. Spencer knew his turn at the helm of the UC Davis offense was coming. The redshirt freshman quarterback by way of Inderkum High was a dutiful student last season. Judging from a couple of early fill-in performances this fall, Spencer would be ready for his closeup when called upon. However, with junior QB Ben […]

Coach says Cal Poly remembers all too well 2014 loss to UCD

Cal Poly football coach Tim Walsh didn’t mince words when asked if his Mustangs were approaching Saturday’s trip to UC Davis with payback in mind. Aggie fans will remember that Cal Poly was 5-2 in Big Sky Conference play and fighting for a possible postseason berth. UCD went into Alex G. Spanos Stadium with the identical […]

Aggie women hope to pull more than one surprise on Stanford

Might as well see where you match up against the best early on … Coming off an uneven exhibition in which the UC Davis women’s basketball team rallied to top Humboldt State in overtime last week, the Aggies are going to have to put that pedal to the metal Friday when No. 14 Stanford visits The […]

Aggie basketball fans could discover ‘next big thing’

Last year was a brilliant season in which the UC Davis men’s basketball team won the Big West Conference regular-season championship and went to the NIT for the first time in school history. The 25-7 record marked a 16-game improvement over the previous year — the fifth-best step up in NCAA annals. Paced by league […]
