DAVIS, Calif. - After winning its fourth game in the last five played, thanks to an 84-75 result at home Wednesday night vs. Long Beach State, UC Davis will head to Honolulu to face Hawai'i in the final game of a road-heavy portion of the team's schedule.

Last week, the Aggies played in their first two Big West road games, and will compete in its third event outside of Davis within a two-week timespan. Once everyone returns to the mainland on Sunday, four of their next six games will take place inside the Pavilion.

Hawai'i will host UC Davis in the third of four straight Big West home games -- its longest league homestand. Off since last Saturday, UH and the Aggies enter this contest tied for second with matching 3-1 league records. If Cal State Fullerton falls at Long Beach State this weekend, the winner of Saturday's game inside the Stan Sheriff Center will sit alongside the Titans in first place entering the fourth week of league play.

The Aggies swept last season's series, topping the Rainbow Warriors in Honolulu, 76-70, before recording another single-season undefeated record on Hamilton Court with a 68-59 win in their 2016-17 home finale. Another victory will give UC Davis its longest win streak vs. UH, and snap the Rainbow Warriors' current three-game win streak in the process.

In addition to breaking a second-place tie, this conference contest also features the league's top two defenses. As has been the case throughout the last few seasons, UC Davis is the Big West's No. 1 unit, holding opponents to 66.7 points per game. Ranked right behind the Aggies by allowing 68.8 ppg this year are the Rainbow Warriors. These are the only conference teams that hold an opponent scoring average under 70 points.

The Aggies also lead the league with their + 2.1 turnover margin and possess the lowest opponent three-point field goal percentage (.315).

Series Record:
UC Davis trails 6-5
Last UC Davis Win: 3/2/17 - H, 76-70
Last Hawai'i Win: 23/3/16 - A, 67-65
Series Streak: UC Davis +2
