DAVIS, Calif. (AP) -- J.T. Adenrele had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead five UC Davis players scoring in double figures in a 79-72 victory against UC Riverside on Saturday night.

Ryan Sypkens added 17 points, Josh Ritchart 13, Tyler Les 12 and Paolo Mancasola 10 for the Aggies (8-11, 4-4 Big West), who won for the third time in four games.

Josh Fox had 22 points and nine rebounds and Chris Harriel added 18 points for the Highlanders (5-15, 2-6).

UC Davis shot 56.8 percent (25 of 44) from the floor and made 10 three-pointers, its third straight game with at least that many. Sypkens made four from behind the arc and Les three.

The Aggies took the lead for good on Adenrele's three-point play with 6:45 left in the first half. That was part of a 27-13 run that gave UC Davis a 41-30 halftime lead, and it maintained a double-digit lead for most of the second half.
