What to Know

UC San Diego has enjoyed a two-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. The UC San Diego Tritons and the UC Davis Aggies will face off in a Big West battle at 5:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at University Credit Union Center. Both teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous matches.

Last Thursday, the Tritons escaped with a win against the Highlanders by the margin of a single free throw, 66-65.

Meanwhile, UC Davis had already won three in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 9.7 points), and they went ahead and made it four on Saturday. They came out on top in a nail-biter against the Anteaters and snuck past 54-52. Despite the victory, that was the fewest points UC Davis has scored all year.

The Tritons pushed their record up to 13-7 with that win, which was their fifth straight at home. Those victories were due in large part to their offensive dominance across that stretch, as they averaged 79.0 points per game.
