Honorable Mention

Looking back at the four seasons Samantha Meggison has played for the UC Davis women’s basketball program, there is not much she hasn’t accomplished.

Meggison had a highlight year for the Aggies this season and earned All-Big West Conference First-Team honors for her prowess on offense and defense.
The senior led the team in points 11 times this year and in rebounds 12 times. Her 149 rebounds and 323 points — including 110 from the free-throw line — were the highest totals on the team.
But to confine Meggison’s impact on the Aggies to one season would to ignore everything that has put her in the UC Davis record books.
Meggison has only gotten better with time over her career, and her steady improvement was apparent late this season, as she led the team in scoring in five of the last six regular season games. Not just an offensive player, Meggison is also on UC Davis’s top-10 all time list in steals.
Meggison is UC Davis’ all time career leader in games played, and it is difficult to say where the Aggies basketball program would be without her these past four years.
