Rivi’s Road Test

Big test tonight for the 9-3 Highlanders as they tip off in a few short hours against host UC Davis. On one hand, UCR is fortunate to have its first conference road game against the likes of the Aggies instead of Pacific — the Highlanders head to Stockton next — or Northridge.

The Aggies just ain’t all that, which gives UCR a good shot at claiming its 10th win of the season tonight (which would put it past last year’s grand total for wins) and could provide some confidence heading into its game with Pacific on Saturday, which will no doubt be a much more serious affair.

On the other hand, this will be like a playoff game for Davis — the playoff game it didn’t get a chance to play in last year when the Highlanders beat the Aggies in a do-or-die game to close out the season. Rivi went on to the Big West tourney while Davis simply went home. Needless to say, the Aggies will be gunning for the Highlanders tonight. 

Pub Wisdom has a feeling that, after blowing out Cal Poly and gritting out a come-from-behind win against UCSB, the Highlanders are ready for a let down tonight. Let’s hope I’m wrong.

Pub Wisdom Predicts: UC Davis 69 — 61  UC Riverside
