March 4, 2018

DAVIS, Calif. - For the first time since 2003, the outright women’s and men’s basketball regular season champions hail from the same school. The head coaches from each team, Jennifer Gross (WBB) and Jim Les (MBB), will join host Scott Marsh at the final Coaches Show of the 2017-18 season.

This event will take place at El Macero Country Club on Tuesday, March 6, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Due to its location, this show is open to El Macero members only. A Facebook Live stream on UC Davis Athletics’ page is available for everyone to access.

Women’s basketball captured a regular season championship, the second time in as many seasons, with one week remaining and will head to the Honda Center with wins in six of its last seven games. By winning its final five straight contests, capped by a thrilling double overtime victory at UC Irvine last Saturday, men’s basketball earned its third league title in the last four seasons.

Both teams will enter this week’s Big West Tournament opener in Anaheim as the top seed in their respective brackets. The men will face UC Riverside at 12 p.m. on Thursday in its quarterfinal, the women will compete in its first postseason game during Friday’s noon semifinal.

The women will face the lowest remaining seed from Wednesday’s quarterfinals matchups, hosted by Cal State Fullerton.
