Take away the second quarter of the Davis High girls basketball game Tuesday night against Pleasant Grove, and the Lady Blue Devils go home with a win.

Aggie men hope to keep W’s coming; surging women on the road

Aggie fans have to wonder if Siler Schneider’s heart-stopping 3-pointer that beat CSUN last week was the demarcation of better things to come for the UC Davis basketball men.
