DAVIS, Calif. - After spending a bulk of the season on the road, UC Davis will enjoy a nice luxury throughout the upcoming weeks by playing its next four games locally, starting with Wednesday's home game vs. Pacific.

Tipoff between the Tigers and Aggies will take place at 7:30 p.m., or 35 minutes after the preceding UC Davis women's basketball game ends, whichever is later. This is the only UC Davis basketball home doubleheader taking place throughout non-conference play, with another three scheduled throughout Big West action.

Since UC Davis defeated Pacific on Nov. 15, both teams have played solid basketball. After dropping consecutive games against UC Davis and Air Force, the Tigers won five of the following six, and will enter the Pavilion riding a three-game win streak.

The Aggies will return to Hamilton Court off its blowout victory at Washington State, which capped another undefeated week of action. With last week's victories, UC Davis is No. 22 in the NCAA's RPI ratings -- the highest mark in program history -- and No. 25 in the latest Mid-Major Top 25 Poll.

With wins in its last 12 straight games on Hamilton Court, UC Davis enters the week with the 11th-longest home court win streak in the nation.

Wednesday's game will complete a home-and-home series, one that opened with Siler Schneider hitting the game-winning shot, with 34 seconds remaining, to help the Aggies record their first win in Stockton since the 1939-40 season.

Another UC Davis victory will help it sweep this year's head-to-head matchups for the first time since that season, and record the first home victory vs. the Tigers since 2012 -- the penultimate matchup in Davis between these team since Pacific left the Big West Conference and joined the West Coast Conference once the 2012-13 season concluded.

Series Record: UC Davis trails 82-13
Last UC Davis Win: 11/15/17 - A, 62-58
Last Pacific Win: 2/3/13 - A, 77-64
Series Streak: UC Davis +1
