The defeats extended UC Davis’ road losing streak to seven matches. Over that stretch the Aggies have won just three sets.
UC Davis fell to 20-8 on the season, 6-7 in Big West play. The Aggies are currently fifth-place in the conference.

The Aggies will next take the court Friday against Cal State Fullerton in the Pavilion.
