    Jen Gross is the Women's Big West Coach of the Year.

    Frist team All Big West: Morgan Bertsch

    Second team All Big West: Pele Gianotti and Rachel Nagel

    Honorable Mention: Dani Nafekh

    All Freshman Team: Cierra Hall


    From the Big West website:

    Gross led UC Davis to back-to-back Big West titles, the first time since 2007-09 that a program has won consecutive outright Big West titles. The Aggies equaled their program record for conference wins (14) and are one win shy of tying the school record for victories (25) set last season. The team has also won its last 14 home games against Big West foes and this season became the quickest to 20 wins in program Division I history. Under Gross, UCD has now posted back-to-back 20 win seasons for the second time in program DI history and the first since the 2009-11. The squad has also clinched its second straight postseason appearance, earning at least a bid to the WNIT. Gross is now the first coach to win back-to-back Coach of the Year awards since UC Santa Barbara legend Mark French accomplished the feat in 1999-01.

    Aggies down 17-23 at the half.

    Defense is there now but shots aren't going down. Press seems to be working, hopefully UCR is tired after their earlier games

    The Ags scored 4 points in the 2nd quarter. The Ags were asleep at the wheel until they turned up the defense with the press. The offense is totally out of sync though. The Ags need to regroup and play like they are capable.

    Ags trail 33-30 after 3 quarters.

    So many close college basketball games lately. I'm not sure I can take this much stress every season.

    A layup when down by 3?

    This was literally the epitome of survive to play again. The Ags won this game with defense because the offense was totally out of sync the whole game. The number of unforced TO's was hard to watch. I hope we got that out of our system because we'll need to play much, much better to win another game.

    Ugly game but a gritty win.
  • SoCalAggie

    Yea. Not sure why she didn’t pull up.
  • BlueGoldAg

    Yep, wasn't a smart choice.

    Ugly is an understatement... lol

    Hopefully they play better tomorrow!

    Trying to draw a foul is the only thing I can think of?

    At any rate, yeah--mystifying how this team starts SO COLD game after game. It's gotta drive the coaches crazy.

    Well that was tough to watch. Don’t understand why ucr didn’t foul earlier on out last possession and why a layup down by 3. But we’ll take it. Hopefully that does away with any tightness we may have felt. Good Aggie support, except for one idiot who should have his Aggie sweatshirt taken away.

    Go Ags!
