THE DOWNLOAD: Basketball, Strawberries, Falcons

Highlights: MBB 2-0 Sweep against LBSU

Fans may not be able to watch UC Davis basketball from the stands, but they can still see a recap of recent action in the above video. The video shows highlights of the men’s team vs. Long Beach State, Feb. 12 and 13. The Aggies won the first game, 68-66, and the second, also by 2 points, 78-76, in overtime.

See where new strawberries are bred

A lot of behind-the-scenes work went into the two new strawberry variants UC Davis breeders recently released, and you can see some of that work in the above video. Glenn Cole, breeder and field manager with the UC Davis Strawberry Breeding Program, spoke with Good Day Sacramento from a greenhouse on campus, just a week after showing a reporter around the fields at the universitys Wolfskill Ranch.

Looking forward to falcons

UC Davis Health peregrine falcon nest

The peregrine falcon nest atop the UC Davis Medical Center may be empty, but it won’t stay that way for long. Bill Corbett, UC Davis Health’s in-house expert, gave a preview of the upcoming season:

“Right now, our peregrines are at the nest site and are doing typical courting ritual behaviors. We expect that eggs will be laid at the end of March and chicks will hatch around May 1.”
