Washington outrebounded Utah Tech 44- 29, as well as shooting 61.9% on two-pointers (26 for 42) and 25% from three-point range (8-32) demonstrating that their inside dominance was the difference in the game.
Expect the Huskies to look to assert their dominance inside against the Aggies on offense and defense.
The UC-Davis Aggies were picked to finish No. 5 in the conference’s Preseason Big West Coaches and Media Polls.
UC-Davis is led by the five-time Big West Coach of the Year Jennifer Gross.
On the court, the Aggies are led by #15 Evanne Turner, a junior guard and sharpshooter finished ninth in Big West scoring last season at 12.6 points per game.
Turner shot 37.6% from three-point range (73 of 194) which led The Big West with 2.6 made three-pointers per game.
This season, so far Turner is shooting 55.6% from three-point range (5 for 9) for UC-Davis.

Other than Evanne Turner, the USC Aggies do not pose much of an outside threat to the Huskies defense.
Despite Turner’s 55.6% 3-point shooting average, the Aggies are only making 30.8% from three-point range.
By far, UC-Davis does most of its scoring inside the paint, hitting 62.5% of their inside shots — by contrast, the Aggies have attempted ZERO mid-range shots.
