FULLERTON — There was at least one Aggie highlight in the UC Davis men’s basketball team’s 74-64 loss to Cal State Fullerton on Thursday, and it came courtesy of the local player sho has provided so many in his nearly two seasons at UCD: Corey Hawkins.

Just seconds before intermission at Titan Gym, the junior guard’s three-point play made him the 20th men’s player in school history to reach the 1,000-point threshold.

Hawkins, who joined teammate Ryan Sypkens in reaching the milestone this season, led UCD (8-17) with 21 points in the loss that dropped it to 3-7 in Big West Conference play.

The Titans (8-15, 3-6) are now just ahead of the Aggies, who fell into a last-place tie with UC Riverside.

In addition to his scoring, Hawkins was one of two players, along with Brynton Lemar, to grab a team-high five rebounds.

“It is an honor to reach this milestone, but I must admit that I was unaware of my situation entering this game,”  Hawkins said. “All credit goes to my teammates; it is their aggressive play that creates a lot of open looks for everyone on the court.

“It does not matter who is in the game, we always look to find the best possible shot; when I am given that opportunity, I want to reward my teammate’s trust and faith in me.”

The contest featured five ties and five lead changes in a first half that saw neither team lead by more than five points — until an 11-0 spurt gave Fullerton a 12-point advantage late in the period.

Before Hawkins’ record-setting possession, Justin Dueck earned two of the Aggies’ 22 points in the paint on a layup with 49 seconds left until the break. Hawkins followed with his three points and UCD looked like it would go into halftime trailing by single digits.

However, Titan Alex Harris made a desperation three at the buzzer to put his team up 42-32 at intermission.

Fullerton maintained its lead throughout the second half, then made six of its final eight free throws to seal the victory.

For the Aggies, Darius Graham and Georgi Funtarov scored eight points apiece.

Notes: UCD is off Saturday and returns to the court next Thursday with a 7 p.m. home game against Long Beach State (10-14, 6-4). … In other Big West games Thursday, the 49ers were clipped by first-place UC Santa Barbara, 65-64, while Cal Poly topped Cal State Northridge, 62-55, and Hawaii defeated Riverside, 87-76.
