UC Davis has a budding superstar in their backcourt in Ezra Manjon. He already is one of the most exciting players in the league and looking to have a big 2020-21 campaign.

The University of California at Davis has the third-largest enrollment in the University of California system. The school also has the best veterinary school in the world. In addition to that the school has a basketball team that experienced tons of success at the Division II level and has experienced a little success at the Division I level.

The Aggies are a member of the Big West Conference and since joining the conference and the Division I ranks the Aggies have experienced a good amount of success especially in the last decade. Since the 2014-2015 season, the Aggies have been one of the best teams in the Big West. They have one conference title in 2017 which earned them a berth into the NCAA tournament. They have also finished fourth or better in four of the last six seasons. The Aggies have had a tough last two seasons under current head coach Jim Les. UC Davis is hoping to get back to their winning ways this year.

One of the players who is going to be expected to help lead the Aggies to the top of the conference is sophomore point guard Ezra Manjon. Coach Les has always had a star player who is able to help him win a ton of games. His sophomore point guard is the next in line to lead the young Aggies. The Big West gets better every year and next year is no exception.

Throw the Aggies into the conversation as teams who should be greatly improved like most of the conference. The Aggies have just as good of a chance as anyone to finish near the top of the conference if they play well.
