Chris McNealy accounted for 15 points, Daman Starring 12 and Alex Young 11 points for the visitors.

The Aggies (14-15, 9-8) were paced by Corey Hawkins who tallied a game-high 21 points, but still the squad closed out the regular season with a second straight setback. J.T.

In the second half UCI responded by connecting on not just 55.0 percent from the floor, but also 7-of-14 on the perimeter in order to assume control and hold on for the three-point victory.

The Anteaters were outscored at the free-throw line, 23-11, but made up for it by turning the ball over just five times and maintaining a 47-35 edge on the glass.
