Bears are too much for UCD men

BERKELEY — Joe Harden took his game up a notch on Wednesday night when the UC Davis men\’s

\n

basketball team faced a power conference team. Unfortunately Harden\’s career-high 27 points weren\’t enough to lift the Aggies over the Pac-10\’s California, in front of 6,753 fans at Haas Pavilion.

\n

The Golden Bears shot 54 percent from the floor — against a UCD team that was allowing just 41.9 percent going into the game — and defeated the Aggies, 74-62.

\n

Harden got his points on 11-of-19 shooing for UCD, which dropped to 3-5.

\n

“He was terrific,” said Aggie head coach Gary Stewart. “As good as he was in relationship to scoring the ball, it was the other things too. I thought his leadership was outstanding and you need that coming into an environment on the road like this.”

\n

Mark Payne also chipped in with 15 points, five assists and four rebounds for the Aggies. Cal (4-2) had three players in double figures, led by Gary Franklin\’s 13 points.

\n

UCD played well in the opening half, fighting back from an early deficit to take its first lead of

\n

the night at 14-13. Payne had seven of the first 11 points, and a Ryan Sypkens trey gave the Aggies that one-point advantage with 12:11 on the clock.

\n

Harden led all scored with 12 points in the first half, using one of his long range two-pointers to put UCD up 21-20 at the 8:10 mark. The back and forth action continued, with a stretch of nearly eight minutes where neither team led by more than three points.

\n

After five ties and four lead changes in the first half, the Golden Bears took the lead for good on a pair of free throws by Franklin that made it 27-26, with 4:39 remaining in the half. Cal ended the half on a 13-4 run to take a 39-30 advantage into the locker room.

\n

“I thought we did some good things tonight,” said Stewart. “We took care of the ball, particularly in the second half with four turnovers as a team.

\n

“We were able to make 49 percent of our shots, so I thought we did some really good things. There were five plays that were 50/50 plays and Cal made them all. To beat a team like this on the road, you have to get those plays, so give credit to Cal that they did.”

\n

A pair of Eddie Miller finishes in the paint helped the Aggies cut the deficit to four early in the second half at 47-43 score. The Golden Bears, however, responded with an 8-0 run, going up 55-43 with 12:13 remaining in the game.

\n

UCD was outrebounded 31-21, but the turnover margin was even at 13-13.

\n

“We weren\’t as good defensively as we thought we would have been coming into the game,” said Stewart. “They spaced us out and made some shots from three and then got the ball in the interior. They\’re difficult to guard.

\n

“But we didn\’t give up transition baskets and we forced them into the half court. So we\’ll go back and look at the film and make some adjustments accordingly.”

\n

Those adjustments will be made quickly as the Aggies host Notre Dame de Namur on Saturday at 7 p.m.
