\n

The UC Davis men\’s basketball team dropped a 67-62 exhibition contest to Academy of Art in on Saturday, at the Pavillion.

\n

Ivan Prema recorded 17 points for the Urban Knights, after shooting 5 of 9 from the field, including a 4 of 7 effort from three. The Aggies were led by Joe Harden\’s 17-point, 12-rebound performance.

\n

Despite leading by six late in the game, UC Davis couldn\’t overcome a six-point halftime deficit. After the Aggies led 51-46 midway through the second half, Academy of Art outscored UCD 21-11 in the remainder of the game.

\n

The offenses for each team struggled at times in the first half, with five ties and four lead changes in the opening frame. Academy of Art took a 5-0 lead to start the game, thanks to Prema\’s trey, two minutes into the game.

\n

The Aggies quickly tied the game at five apiece, using a Ryan Sypkens three to even the score. After trading baskets, UCD took its first lead of the game on a Mark Payne free throw at the 10:03 mark, making the score 12-11.

\n

A pair of ties would follow, before two more Payne free throws gave the Aggies a 17-15 advantage. From there, the Urban Knights rattled off a 12-3 run, to go up 27-20 with 4:03 on the clock. Academy of Art took its biggest lead of the first half on a Phillip Samuel layup with 1:29 remaining in the half, making the score 31-23.

\n

Mike Kurtz managed a layup in the final minute, bringing the halftime score to 31-25, with the Urban Knights holding the advantage. UCD shot just 29 percent from the floor in the first half and committed 12 turnovers in the first 20 minutes.

\n

Academy of Art extended its lead to eight to start the second half, thanks to a Jonathan Burnett layup. Ryan Howley helped cut the deficit to four at the 17 minute mark, hitting a three that made the score 35-31.

\n

UCD started to get going on offense from there, tying the score at 41 on a Howley layup, with 13:23 on the clock. Harden put the Aggies on top 45-44 with 12:07 left to play, giving UCD the lead for the first time since the 6:38 mark in the first half.

\n

UCD capped off a 16-5 run with a Kurtz offensive rebound and three-point play, that brought score to 51-46 with 8:31 on the clock. The Urban Knights refused to go away however, with a three-point play by Devin Williams that made the score 53-52. Academy of Art took back the lead, 57-55 with 4:21 remaining in the game, thanks to a Czar Robotham three.

\n

After a 7-0 run for the Urban Knights, three straight points for Payne made it a one-point game with a 59-58 deficit for UCD. Academy of Art responded with a dagger from Prema, who\’s corner three put the Urban Knights up 62-58.

\n

Academy of Art made just one of four free throw attempts over the next minute, while Payne made four straight at the line, bringing the score to 63-62 with 52 seconds left in the game.
