Big West champion UC Davis makes its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament on Wednesday night when the Aggies take on North Carolina Central in the First Four in Dayton, Ohio. UC Davis, which finished its transition to Division I in 2007, has won six of its last seven games, while the Eagles took the MEAC tournament to make the Big Dance for the second time and the winner of the 16th-seed matchup faces top-seeded Kansas in the first round of the Midwest Regional Friday in Tulsa, Okla.

The Aggies beat Cal State Fullerton in overtime in the semifinals before holding top seed UC Irvine to 16 points in the first half en route to a 50-47 victory in the Big West championship game. “Defense is underrated and overlooked,” UC Davis coach Jim Les told reporters after the final, “but our players brought their hard hat with them for every game.” North Carolina Central, which lost to Iowa State in its only other appearance 93-75 in 2014, won 13 straight at one point this season and knocked off Missouri as well. Senior guard Patrick Cole leads the way for the Eagles, averaging team highs of 19.5 points and 5.7 assists.
