HONOLULU — The UC Davis women’s basketball team opened up a slim advantage in the first half of Thursday’s contest at Hawaii’s Stan Sheriff Center, but the Rainbow Wahine answered with a big run to snap the Aggies’ three-game winning streak.

The 17-3 spurt spanned both halves and gave the Rainbow Wahine a 64-50 Big West Conference victory.

Sydnee Fipps led UCD (8-10, 3-2) with 17 points and Alyson Doherty added 11 more, but UH won its third consecutive contest to improve to 8-10 overall and 3-1 in league play.

Fipps did most of her damage from the free-throw line, where she hit 10-of-14 shots, and added five rebounds and two steals. Her scoring total helped her get to within 18 points of becoming the 16th player in program history to reach 1,000.

Doherty, meanwhile, hit 4-of-8 from the field and grabbed four boards.

Kamilah Jackson led the Wahine with a game-high 18 points — 14 of them coming in the second half, when she made 4-of-5 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the line.

The Aggies led by as many as five points at 19-14 with just over four minutes to play in the first period before Hawaii, which shot just 27 percent in the opening half, found a rhythm offensively to take an advantage it would never give up.

Marissa Wimbley nailed a 3-pointer from the right corner to jumpstart an 11-3 run over the final 3:48 of the first half and the Rainbow Wahine carried a 25-22 lead into the locker room.

UH picked up right where it left off to start the second period, scoring the first six points of the half extending the run to 17-3 and never looking back.

UCD whittled the lead down to 11 points on numerous occasions, but could not get it down to single digits. Freshman Taylor McGuire added a spark off the bench with a pair of 3-pointers, but the Rainbow Wahine defense clamped down in the final four minutes, holding the Aggies to just four free throws in that span.

The locals shot just 36 percent for the game and were outrebounded, 38-27, including 14-6 on the offensive glass.

Notes: UCD returns home next week to host Cal Poly (next Thursday at 7 p.m.) and UC Santa Barbara (Saturday, Feb. 1 at 2 p.m.). … The first-place Mustangs beat Cal State Fullerton, 69-65, at home Thursday, while the Gauchos hosted UC Riverside and won 74-61. The final Big West game of the day saw UC Irvine defeat Cal State Northridge, 83-73.
