DAVIS, Calif. - Let the Madness begin!
With only one week remaining in the regular season, both Hawai’i and UC Davis are battling for the best possible position at this season’s league playoffs, which starts next Thursday. Hawai’i can finish anywhere from No. 4 to No. 6 in the Big West Tournament seeding depending on what takes place this week; UC Davis can enter the Honda Center from No. 1 to No. 4.
For UC Davis, its championship situation remains the same following Saturday’s home victory vs. UC Riverside: If it wins out, the team will win a share of a regular season title (the Aggies’ third crown in the last four seasons). And with a victory in its final home game of the year, they will record their third 20-win season the last four years.
Thursday’s game also marks the second season in a row that the Aggies will host Hawai’i on Senior Night.
This matchup on Hamilton Court features the league’s top two teams with the best home records in recent seasons. From the start of the 2014-15 season, no mainland Big West team won more games at home than UC Davis (42). Hawai’i, thanks to numerous tournaments that fill its non-conference schedule each season, won 55 games inside the Stan Sheriff Center, but hosted 78 home events versus UC Davis’ 51.
The Aggies’ .824 win percentage throughout the last three-plus seasons is also the highest in the BWC.
Home court success continued this season for both teams with the Aggies winning 9 of 11 games, and UH finishing its home slate with a 13-7 mark. However, these teams have experienced different levels of success on the road throughout the 2017-18 campaign.
UC Davis is one of only two league teams with a winning road record, and has a chance to enter the league's playoffs with a conference-high road victory total — it currently has eight — depending on its result at UC Irvine on Saturday. Of of the Rainbow Warriors’ seven road games, they won three of those matchups.
The Aggies won two of the last three head-to-head games, and two of the last three that took place inside the Pavilion.
Series Record: UC Davis trails 7-5
Last UC Davis Win: 3/2/17 - H, 76-70
Last Hawai’i Win: 1/20/18 - A, 77-72
Series Streak: Hawai’i +1
