SEATTLE — Playing its sixth game in 11 days, the UC Davis men’s basketball team fell behind early at Seattle on Monday then didn’t have enough energy to come all the way back in a 77-53 loss at KeyArena.

The Aggies trailed by 18 points at halftime, but scored nine of the first 11 points after the break to cut into the lead. That, however, was as close as UCD would come in falling to 3-6 on the season.

Josh Ritchart and Corey Hawkins paced the Aggies in that second-half flurry — Hawkins with a layup and Ritchart with back-to-back 3-pointers — forcing the Redhawks (4-3) to call a timeout.

Also aiding UCD’s comeback attempt was its performance on defense and forward Clint Bozner’s effort in the paint.

Of Seattle’s first four second-half possessions, the Aggies forced two turnovers and Bozner battled numerous Redhawk big men to collect his second and third rebounds of the game on consecutive missed shots.

Bozner ended his evening with seven points — he was 2-for-3 from the field and 3-for-4 at the line — and three rebounds, while Ritchart finished with a team-high 14 points and six rebounds. Hawkins added 12 points and Georgi Funtarov led local bench players with five points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

For Ritchart, Monday’s game was the eighth time this season and 48th in his career with 10 or more points.

Seattle, meanwhile was led by Isiah Umipig and his career-high 30 points.
