Sneak peek at Aggie women’s basketball team due Friday

Want a sneak peek at what your UC Davis women’s basketball team will be this season?

There’s a coming-out party Friday at The Pavilion. Humboldt State is visiting for a preseason exhibition game and admission is free.

Coming off a 12-18 record last season, the Aggies have only 11 players on a roster that features one senior, two freshmen and a whole bunch of emerging talent that could make UCD the surprise package of the Big West Conference.

Game time is 7 p.m. It marks the only exhibition game of the year as the Aggies will get busy with their regular season on Friday, Nov. 8, at home against USC.

“As a coaching staff, we couldn’t be more excited about this team. We’re going to have some fun with our lineups and give people fits by mixing things up,” says UCD coach Jen Gross.

Of the handful of Aggies to watch, All-Big West selection Sydnee Fipps is expected to be a focal point.

The Maricopa native averaged 17.1 points per game and started hitting the boards hard late in the season (five rebounds a night).

Fipps has been named to the preseason all-conference squad and Gross says she has, yet again, improved.

But this year, it’s all hands on deck for the Aggies.

Gross says she went with the small roster for a couple of reasons: “These women can all play … and because of that, we’re able to (save) a couple of scholarships for when we need them later.”

The coach believes any of her players can join the fray and contribute.

The Division II Lumberjacks (10-18 in 2012-13) are coming off a 100-89 exhibition loss to Oregon Tech on Saturday.
