SAN FRANCISCO — Sydnee Fipps knocked down a career-high 26 points and collected five steals, but the UC Davis women’s basketball team dropped a 72-65 decision to San Francisco on Wednesday at War Memorial Gym in San Francisco.

The Aggies dropped to 0-2 on the year, while San Francisco improves to 2-0.

Just one game after setting her previous career-high mark for points, Fipps turned in another remarkable offensive night, hitting 8-of-13 from the field and 8-of-11 from the free throw line. She also went 2-for-4 from 3-point range.

The sophomore’s 26 points is the highest scoring output for UCD since Jessica Campbell scored 29 points on Dec. 20, 2007 — also at San Francisco.

Fipps opened the game by scoring nine of the Aggies’ first 13 points, including a floater from the left side at the 12:46 mark to keep UCD within four points as the Dons took a 17-13 lead.
