DAVIS, Calif. - After recording another undefeated week, UC Davis basketball climbed the NCAA's Rating Percentage Index when the organization released its latest listing. When unveiled, the Aggies were ranked No. 22 among all Division I programs in the nation, and the only mid-major program among the top 25. 

UC Davis' No. 22 ranking, through games played on Dec. 3, is a program-high mark.

The rating percentage index, commonly known as the RPI, is a quantity used to rank sports teams based upon a team's wins, losses and its strength of schedule.

Starting with Wednesday's 7:30 p.m. matchup vs. Pacific, the Aggies' next two games will take place on Hamilton Court. UC Davis will enter that game with a 12-game home win streak, the 11th-longest in the country.
