DAVIS, Calif. - Even though they are separated by just 147 miles, UC Davis and Nevada, a team receiving votes in this week's AP National Poll, will square off for the first time since the 2013 season, and the fifth time since 2000, in each team's second game of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic. This is the final on-site tournament game for the Aggies and Wolf Pack before action shifts to the Orleans Arena, in Las Vegas, for everyone's final two games on Friday and Saturday.

Also competing in this tournament are: Southern Illinois, Duquesne, San Francisco, Radford, Lamar (the Aggies' next opponent in Friday's 2:30 p.m. neutral-site contest) and North Carolina A&T.

For the first time in program history, UC Davis will compete in a game streamed on Facebook; calling Tuesday's action courtside at the Lawlor Events Center are Ari Wolfe (PBP), Darius Walker (Analyst) and Kristen Balboni (Sideline).

The Aggies' upcoming road game also features two teams who are extremely successful at home: UC Davis, a team that won its last 14 in a row on Hamilton Court, will face the Wolf Pack, who won their last nine straight in Reno. However, if there is any team capable of snapping Nevada's streak, it is the Aggies, especially since they already handed a challenging opponent its first home loss of the season.

When UC Davis traveled to Pullman earlier this month, it faced a Washington State squad that won its first six games of the season, including all three on its home floor, and hosted the Aggies after topping two formidable foes in San Diego State and Saint Mary's to win the Wooden Classic Tournament the previous week.

Expect an entertaining, and close battle between these teams since the last two head-to-head contests were decided in the final seconds. When the Aggies last visited Reno, an off-balanced fadeaway basket scored in the final seconds by Nevada turned what would have been a one-point UC Davis win into a heartbreaking result. Overtime was needed the following season when the Wolf Pack visited Davis  (2013 season) for the first time in 40 years.

Last UC Davis Win: 1/23/73 - H, 82-78
Last Nevada Win: 12/7/13 - H, 87-81 (OT)
