In a program with as rich a history as the UC Davis women’s basketball team, it is difficult to accomplish anything that hasn’t been done before.
Yet senior Samantha Meggison had a career with the Aggies that can truly be described as unprecedented.
Meggison came to UC Davis in the midst of the transition from Division II to Division I and took everything in stride. From the start, she gained playing time, and after four years, now stands as UC Davis’s all-time career-games-played leader.
The senior led the team in total rebounds and points, with 149 and 323, respectively, this past season. Her stance on UC Davis’ top-10 all-time steals list completes her profile of the ultimate all-around player.
Meggison was awarded All-Big West Conference first team honors for her performance this year, which was an embodiment of an illustrious career with the Aggies.
