UCD men’s basketball releases 2013-14 schedule

Fifteen regular-season home games, including visits to The Pavilion by Nevada, Air Force and Sacramento State, non-conference road games at Stanford, Utah, San Jose State, Portland and a three-game tournament at Portland State highlight UC Davis’ 2013-14 men’s basketball schedule.

“We are very excited to have 15 home games in the Pavilion in front of our growing fan base,” said head coach Jim Les. “We have challenged our team with the competitiveness of our non-conference schedule; playing teams from the Pac-12 and Mountain West will help prepare us to compete for a Big West championship.”

Released by the program on Tuesday, year three of the Les era of Aggie basketball will officially begin with its season-opener on Nov. 8, at Portland.

Once the Aggies return to Davis, the team will have a brief window of time to prepare for its home opener against Holy Names, on Nov. 11. Following their opener, UCD takes to the road on a four-game swing that begins at Utah and ends in a tournament hosted by Portland State.

The Aggies will end November’s schedule with consecutive home games, including the Causeway Cup meeting against Sacramento State on Nov. 26. The brief homestand will conclude with a 2 p.m. tip against Idaho, one of two matinée games that will take place at The Pavilion this season.

Nevada, the first of three Mountain West opponents the Aggies will face within a 14-day timespan, will visit The Pavilion on Dec. 7. UCD then will travel to Palo Alto to face Stanford the following week on Dec. 14.

Mountain West action will continue on Dec. 18 against San Jose State, the newest member of the conference, before concluding on Dec. 21 when the Aggies host Air Force in their final afternoon contest of the year at 2:30 p.m.

UCD’s conference schedule will start on Jan. 9 in a Southern California swing that will first take the Aggies to Cal State Northridge, before ending that weekend against the defending Big West regular season champions in Long Beach State.

Besides comprising the Aggies’ longest conference homestand, games against UC Riverside (Jan. 16), Cal State Fullerton (Jan. 18) and Hawaii serve as the inaugural contests of a conference home schedule that will conclude on March 1 against UC Santa Barbara.

For the fourth straight season, the Big West men’s basketball tournament will take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Quarterfinal games will begin on March 13; the semifinals and championship game will continue into the weekend on March 14 and 15, respectively.

Last season, UCD tied a school record for the most victories in the Division I era with 14, and matched another record with nine Big West wins. Ending with a +10 D-I win differential compared to the 2011-12 season, last year’s Aggies posted one of the top 10 improvements in the nation.

Six-game ticket packages starts as low as $60; season tickets for all 15 home games cost $135 for the general public, $90 for UCD faculty, staff, retirees, CAAA members and $75 for children 17 and under.
