Cheney, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Luke Nelson came off the bench to score 13 points as the UC Irvine Anteaters outlasted the Eastern Washington Eagles, 70-61, in a non-conference clash at Reese Court.

Nelson drained all five of his field goal attempts for UCI (6-5), including a pair from long distance. Will Davis added 12 points for the visitors, while Mamadou Ndiaye and Chris McNealy netted 10 points apiece.

For EWU (5-4), Tyler Harvey led all scorers with 15 points, although he shot just 4-of-15 from the field. Parker Kelly had 13 points, Drew Brandon tallied 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and Ognjen Miljkovic also scored 12 points.
