RIVERSIDE — Riding the momentum of Thursday’s 44-point win at Cal State Fullerton, the UC Davis women’s basketball team never trailed in Saturday’s 61-49 road victory over UC Riverside.

For the Aggies (8-10, 3-4 Big West Conference), Sydnee Fipps led all scorers with 23 points, on 9-of-14 shooting, and freshman Molly Greubel had 10. Emily Vann added a career-high eight points, hitting 2-of-3 from 3-point range, while Cortney French grabbed five rebounds and Blair Shinoda had a career-high seven steals.

Natasha Hadley put up 15 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Highlanders (9-9, 2-5) while freshman Brittany Crain scored 12 points, but UCD held Tre’Shonti Nottingham — the leading scorer in the conference — scoreless in the first half. She finished with eight points.

In fact, the Aggie defense held the entire UCR squad without a point until the 16:42 mark of the first half and jumped out to a 6-0 lead. UCD kept rolling from there, taking a 24-16 advantage when French grabbed an offensive board and scored with 4:16 left until intermission.

UCD held a 31-25 lead at the break, but a banked in Highlander 3-pointer cut the deficit to three early in the second half. However, Heidi Johnson dished out to Greubel for trey, sparking an 11-2 Aggie run to put the locals up by 15 points (51-36) with 6:16 to play.

Now, UCD returns to The Pavilion for four straight games, beginning with a Thursday (7 p.m.) matchup against Long Beach State.
