Another huge Hawkins game in Hawaii isn’t enough for UCD men

HONOLULU — Playing in the same building where last year he scored a school-record 40 points, UC Davis men’s basketball standout Corey Hawkins poured in 29 more on Saturday but Hawaii star Christian Standhardinger equaled that effort in a 86-77 win over the Aggies at the Stan Sheriff Center in Hawaii.

UCD (8-19, 3-9 Big West) remained a half-game ahead of last-place UC Riverside because the Highlanders lost at Cal Poly, 69-64, earlier Saturday.

Hawkins made 8-of-14 shots from the floor including 4-of-5 from beyond the arc and Clint Bozner added a career-high 16 points, but no other Aggie had more than Ryan Sypkens’ 8.

Standhardinger tallied his 29 points on 10-of-15 shooting for the Rainbow Warriors (19-8, 8-5).

UCD, which was still without Iggy Nujic (personal reasons) leaving them with just nine healthy players, got a scare early in the second half when Hawkins went down with an apparent leg injury. However, the tough-as-nails junior gutted it out the rest of the way.

The Aggies got off to a quick start to grab an early lead but Hawaii battled back and eventually took a 15-point advantage at 44-29 with 52 seconds to play before intermission.

Hawkins had big first half, scoring 14 points and making all three of his 3-point attempts. But he didn’t get much help.

Standhardinger had an even bigger opening period, scoring 17 points, and was aided by Isaac Fotu, who had 12 of his 18 points before the break.

Hawaii controlled most of the second half, stretching its lead to as much as 18 (at 54-36) when Standhardinger scored a hoop with 15:53 remaining.

UCD cut the lead to single digits at 80-71 after Darius Graham nailed a trey with 1:17 left, but it could get no closer.
