Six days ago, the tables were turned. On March 2, U.C. Davis beat UCSB 80-59 en route to a three-game win streak into the tournament. However, Head Coach Bonnie Erickson and the team made sure to not have the same outcome twice in a week.

Four Gauchos scored in double-figures led by Alyssa Marin's 15 points to help earn UCSB a Big West semifinal berth March 10 against CSU-Bakersfield.

It was the defense mixed with the Aggies cold shooting that propelled the 5-seed Gauchos to victory allowing only 13 points in the first half to their 41. Seniors Ila Lane and Alexis Tucker both secured double-doubles while Anya Choice added 12 points to the total.
