The UC Davis men’s basketball team will host Long Beach State, the top team in the Big West Conference, today.
The Aggies are 14-14 overall with a 9-7 conference record while the 49ers are 13-3 in conference and 17-11 this season.
On paper this looks like a regular David vs. Goliath matchup, but not so fast. The game will be televised on ESPN2, and rightfully so. The game will showcase some of the best talent in the conference from both teams.
Sophomore Corey Hawkins was just named the Big West Conference’s Most Valuable Player for his offensive prowess in almost every category.
The high-octane match-up between the Aggies and 49ers is a must-see game. Tip-off is at 8 p.m. at the Pavilion, with free shirts for the first arriving students compliments of the Big West.
