Ritchart gets Aggies into position to win another heart-stopper in front of 5,317 at The Pavilion

“This group has become the hunted,” UC Davis men’s basketball coach Jim Les said after his Aggies won their second nationally televised overtime game in January. “We’re getting everybody’s best shot.” On Saturday, it was Cal Poly looking like it had UCD’s number … but a 14-point first-half lead wasn’t enough as Josh Ritchart’s 24 points […]

UCD women survive against winless UCSB

SANTA BARBARA — The UC Davis women’s basketball team shouldn’t have needed an overtime period to take down winless UC Santa Barbara on Saturday.

Entertaining? Check. Playing winning basketball? Check. Setting new Aggie records? Check. Sitting in a first-place tie in the balanced Big West Conference? Check.

Recall that first Aggie TV game, national title?

See that pennant up there in the rafters at The Pavilion? “Men’s Basketball 1998 National Champions Division II.” Yeah, that one. The banner, the annual return of that Aggie team’s coach — Bob Williams, now UC Santa Barbara’s coach — and an encore visit of ESPNU (televising Saturday’s 7 p.m. outing against Cal Poly) all led to […]
