The UC Davis women\’s basketball team has looked impressive in starting 2-0 and its huge 77-35 victory over Washington State on Sunday has made the country take notice.

\n

College Insider Mid-Major Top 25 poll for the first time. The No. 24 Aggies received 118 points as the only Big West team in the rankings. Cal Poly is listed among those receiving votes for the poll, which has Green Bay at No. 1

\n

The ranking is another big step for UCD, which was picked by the media win the conference championship. The Aggies were 21-11 last season and 12-4 in winning the Big West regular-season title. UCD lost a heartbreaker in the conference championship game to miss out on a NCAA-tournament berth. The Aggies then participated in Women\’s

\n

Just two days before the second-seeded Aggies are to begin play at the Western Water Polo Association tournament, five members of the team were honored with conference awards.

\n

UCD head coach Steve Doten was named co-recipient of the WWPA Coach of the Year award, while senior utility Carlos Martinez and junior center Aaron Salit each captured first-team

\n

All-WWPA honors. This is the second such honor for Doten and Martinez, and the first for Salit.

\n

In addition, sophomore attacker Colin Hicks earned All-WWPA honorable mention, and center Teddy Nicholson, a Davis High graduate garnered a nod to the conference\’s All-Freshman Team.

\n

Martinez helps anchor an Aggie defense that has allowed just 79 goals in 14 conference games (5.6 average). He has 25 steals with 20 drawn exclusions so far this season, while adding 16 goals and 11 assists on the offensive end. Salit returned from a 2009 redshirt year to lead UCD (13-1 WWPA) with 44 goals through 25 games. He also paces the team in drawn exclusions (39) and field blocks (15).

\n

Hicks, who earned All-Freshman accolades in 2009, has recorded 24 goals and 26 assists on the offensive end, scoring three hat tricks in the first two weeks of the year. On the defensive end, he has matched Martinez with 25 steals to lead UCD field players.

\n

Nicholson has logged 179 minutes in 20 games as a true freshman, tallying four steals and 18 drawn kickouts as the team\’s backup center. Nicholson scored four of his six goals so far this season at the Inland Empire Classic in September.

A third member of the Quinn family of San Anselmo has joined an Aggie program, as Sir Francis Drake High volleyball standout Katie Quinn has signed a National Letter of Intent and is expected to enroll in UCD in the fall of 2011.

\n

Athletic League, are still alive in the North Coast Section playoffs.
