Recap: UC Davis vs. Long Beach State

Davis, CA (Sports Network) - James Ennis hung up a 24-point, 14-rebound double-double as the Long Beach State 49ers captured the Big West regular season title with a 77-76 win over the UC Davis Aggies at the Pavilion.

Tony Freeland added 21 points and Mike Caffey notched 11 points for Long Beach State (18-11, 14-3 Big West) which also secured the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Big West Tournament.

Corey Hawkins poured in 34 points and Ryan Howley and Ryan Sypkens each added 12 points for UC Davis (14-15) which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Long Beach State owned a razor thin 36-35 lead at halftime after shooting 42.9 percent from the floor while netting 4-of-11 from the free-throw line.

The Aggies had a seven-point lead with 7:20 remaining but the 49ers whittled that deficit down and took a 72-70 edge with 3:27 left on a 3-pointer from Caffey. The Aggies were never able to recover the lead though, as they failed to score in the final minute after pulling back within one point.
