River Cats to honor men's and women's basketball teams

Directions to Raley Field

DAVIS, Calif. - As part of its College Night, the Sacramento River Cats will honor UC Davis men's and women's basketball in a pregame ceremony taking place Friday evening (April 7). First pitch between the River Cats and the Tacoma Raniers is set for 7:05 p.m., make sure you arrive to Raley Field at least 30 minutes early to find you seats and enjoy the festivities featuring both UC Davis teams.

Each basketball team enjoyed its most successful postseason run as a Division I program, earned their first-ever D-I postseason victory — the men's win took place in the NCAA Tournament, the WNIT provided the setting for the women — and added another title to their respective collections. 

By winning the first Big West Conference Tournament championship in team history, the men punched their ticket to the Big Dance. A Big West regular-season crown clinched an automatic bid in the WNIT for the women.
