DAVIS, Calif. - The UC Davis men's basketball team will play at Loyola (Md.) on Feb. 23 as part of the sixth annual O'Reilly ESPNU BracketBusters. The Aggies will be taking part in one of 50 games across the country as part of the three-day event. Loyola is a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

This will be the first year UC Davis has taken part in the ESPNU BracketBusters as all nine Big West Conference schools are participating. UC Davis was one of 50 teams designated as an away team for this year's BracketBuster game. By virtue of playing at Loyola this season, the Aggies will host the Greyhounds in 2008-09 in a return game.

As of Monday, Loyola was 13-10 overall and tied for second in the MAAC with an 8-3 record.

Tip time for the Feb. 23 game is 10 a.m. PST.
