UC Davis finished the regular season with a 14-6 conference record and they were third in the Big West, while Long Beach State was 10-10 and finished tied for fifth. The Aggies are on a nice four game winning streak coming into this game and their defense has been superb.

Long Beach State won the first meeting by a score of 78-74, while UC Davis won the second meeting by a score of 88-78.
