SACRAMENTO, Calif. - During recent home games, the Sacramento River Cats and Sacramento Kings invited UC Davis men's and women's basketball to honor each for their historic seasons. 

Both teams visited Raley Field on the River Cats' Opening Day, and participated in a pregame ceremony. As paft of the festivities, head men's basketball coach Jim Les threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Two days later, the squads visited the Golden 1 Center as guests of the Sacramento Kings. Brynton Lemar, and most of his senior teammates, participated in the team's in-house pregame show. Once action began, both teams made their way courtside, took the court, received a phenomenal ovation from the packed house and were honored by the Kings. 

As part of the between-quarter celebration, the Kings aired a highlight video of the men's NCAA Tournament, and women's National Invitation Tournament runs.
