Recap: UC Davis vs. Pacific

Davis, CA (Sports Network) - Sama Taku finished with 20 points and eight rebounds as the Pacific Tigers defeated the UC Davis Aggies, 74-64, in a Big West Conference tilt at The Pavilion.

Travis Fulton added 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the floor for Pacific (7-7, 1-1 Big West), which climbed back to the .500 mark with its second win in three outings. Ross Rivera also got into the mix with 12 points in 19 minutes off the bench.

Corey Hawkins paced the Aggies (4-9, 0-2) by tallying 19 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the field. J.T. Adenrele scored 14 points and pulled down seven boards while Josh Ritchart contributed 10 points and six rebounds for UC Davis, which lost for the second time in a row.

The Aggies trailed for most of the first period, but Adenrele gave them a 24-23 lead with 1:24 left before the intermission with a dunk off of a Ryan Sypkens assist. That would serve as the halftime score after neither side managed to sink another shot before the break. Pacific's narrow deficit after 20 minutes was due to its 2-of-6 performance at the charity stripe.

The Tigers heated up to drain 62.5 percent of its field goal attempts in the second stanza and their reserves outscored the UC Davis bench, 27-13, to lift the visitors to the double-digit victory.

Turnovers played a big role in the outcome as the Aggies committed 18 miscues which Pacific converted into 16 points. The Tigers lost the ball 13 times, but UC Davis tallied only six points off of turnovers.
