UC Davis Aggies – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2017

UC Davis Aggies (Overall: 19-12, Conf: 11-5)

College Basketball News and Previews

Team Strengths:

If it’s last three games were any indications, the Aggies are about to enter the Big Dance on a solid form, at least defensively. UC Davis, which won the Big West Conference tourney, has limited each of its last three opponents to 64 points or fewer on 34.9 percent shooting.  Those are marked improvements from their season numbers of 68.9 points allowed per game on 42.5 opponents shooting percentage.

Team Weaknesses:

The Aggies are an undersized team with only one player (freshman Peter Hewitt) standing over 6-8. All of the team’s starters are also 6-7 or shorter, which puts the Aggies at a disadvantage when it comes to rebounding and interior defense. That said, UC Davis managed to rank fourth in the conference in rebounding with 35.6 RPG. The lack of bigs should make the Aggies more reliant on their perimeter game. The problem is that they’re not great either in shooting from range. They shoot just 35.1% from beyond the arc and 38.6% on two-point jumpers.
