IRVINE — In a game that featured a little bit of everything — both teams used 14-point runs to erase big deficits and UC Davis’ Molly Greubel set a new single-game record with 14 assists — the Aggie women’s basketball team lost to host UC Irvine, 79-73 on Saturday in overtime.

Many of Greubel’s assists went to Sydney Fipps (21 points), Idit Oryon (13) and Kelsey Harris (12), but it wasn’t enough as the win by the Anteaters (12-11) sent both teams to 5-4 in Big West Conference play. UCD is 10-12 overall.

The contest featured nine ties and a dozen lead changes, the most important one coming on a 14-0 run by UC Irvine just after Oryon’s 3-pointer had put the Aggies up 60-50 midway through the second half.

Behind strong performances from Camille Buckley (23 points), Methlyn Onogomuho (20 points, 13 rebounds) and Lauren Spinazze (12 points), the Anteaters turned that deficit into a 64-60 lead.

The two teams stayed close the rest of the way as Fipps’ bucket with 1:32 to play gave UCD a 68-66 advantage. Buckley, however, quickly tied the game with a pair of free throws and both squads went scoreless for the final 1:11 of regulation.

Coming into the day, the Aggies were 1-0 in overtime games, and they took a 70-69 lead at the halfway point of Saturday’s extra session on Greubel’s layup. But UC Irvine countered with seven straight points to go ahead by six with 1:14 left.

Harris answered with a trey but that was all UCD could muster.

The Aggies trailed 26-18 in the first half but used their own 14-0 run — keyed by a pair of 3-pointers from Harris and one each from Fipps and Oryon — to turn the game around and eventually led 42-40 at halftime.

Gruebel’s 14 assists broke the school record set by Sara Lillevand against Cal State Hayward on Mar. 10, 1990. She’s also the first Aggie to have at least 10 assists in a game since Kim Omer posted 10 in a 2004 matchup with San Francisco State.

UCD is back on the court Thursday when its hosts Cal Sate Fullerton at 7 p.m. at The Pavilion.
