DAVIS, Calif. - 
After opening the season with a five-game road swing, the Aggies will compete on Bob Hamilton Court for the third time, in the last four games, when William Jessup visits the Pavilion for Saturday's 2 p.m. non-conference tilt.

By defeating Pacific on Wednesday, the Aggies extended their current home win streak to 13 games, the sixth-longest in the nation, and would love nothing more than to earn win No. 14 before the team enters its week-long hiatus due to finals. 

Once exams are over, the Aggies will return to action at San Francisco, on Dec. 15, in the first of four games that comprises the team's nine-day-long slate at the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.

Before UC Davis competes in its only non-conference tournament of the season, it will face William Jessup for the second time in as many years. When the Warriors visited the Pavilion last December, the Aggies recorded a 23-point victory that afternoon.

In four of their six wins, the Aggies held their opponents under 60 points -- the latest examples of UC Davis' trademark defense that basketball pundits, and fans alike, have seen on a consistent basis throughout the Jim Les era.

Even though Washington State and Pacific broke that 60-point threshold, and recorded 67 each, UC Davis posted respective shooting percentages of  .545 and .535 pct. overall to hand the Cougars their first loss of the season, and sweep its season series against the Tigers for the first time since the 1939-40 season.

Series Record: UC Davis leads 1-0
Last UC Davis Win: 12/17/16 - H, 87-64
Last William Jessup Win: N/A
Series Streak: UC Davis +1

Early scoring runs lead to an 87-64 home victory
Throughout the entire afternoon, not just during those key scoring runs, UC Davis' ball movement was phenomenal and kept William Jessup on its toes. The Aggies recorded 20 assists, one short of a season high, out of their 29 baskets.
