It is April 9, 2010 an UC Davis has decided on their new head coach today. After a 14-18 record, UC Davis decided to fire Gary Stewart and named 30 year old Lathem Scott as their new head coach. Lathem played college basketball at D-2 for Cal Poly Pomona where he was mostly known for his 3 point ability. Cal Poly Pomona is most known for their defense and that is what UC Davis was looking for more than anything in a coach. Last season UC Davis gave up 70 points per game which ranked 220th in the country. Coach Scott started coaching for the Sacremento Dragons, his old high school, and went to the state semifinals just last season. Sacremento outscored their opponents by an average of 12 points and went 26-7. That apparently was enough for the Aggies as they hired him straight out of high school. "I was really shocked when they called honestly" said a grinning Lathen Scott, "As soon as they offered the job I took it. I guess that is a perk of being single, I can choose on my own whether or not to do things. I cannot wait to get things started tomorrow and I do my job as head coach!"
