SAN LUIS OBISPO — Only six players saw action for Cal Poly on Saturday, but unfortunately for the UC Davis women\’s basketball team, Rachel Clancy was one of them.

\n

Despite playing all 40 minutes because of Mustang injuries and team-imposed suspensions, Clancy scored 21 points to lead Cal Poly to a 74-65 win over the Aggies in a Big West Conference game at Mott Gym.

\n

Clancy connect on seven 3-pointers and scored 31 points overall to help the Mustangs (7-7, 3-0) snap a two-game winning streak by UCD (12-4, 2-2). Cal Poly, which had just eight players in uniform, shot 54.9 percent from the field, including 60.9 percent in the second half.

\n

Vicky Deely scored 17 points to pace the Aggies, while senior Paige Mintun added 12. Both had a team-high six rebounds. UCD hit seven 3-pointers in the game, just about its average, but made only 2-of-19 after halftime.

\n

The Mustangs trailed 42-37 early in the second half, but used a 17-2 run to take a 54-44 advantage with 10:36 to go. The Aggies were able to whittle the deficit to 60-57 with 5:17

\n

remaining, but Jonae Ervin responded with a trey and UCD could not cut the lead to less than four the rest of the way.

\n

Clancy was 5-for-8 from beyond the arc in the second half and finished 7-for-13 overall from

\n

3-point range. Molly Schlemer came off the bench to add 12 points for Cal Poly, Caroline Reeves had 10 before fouling out and guard Kayla Griffin had a game-high 11 rebounds. Griffin

\n

also added six assists while Ervin had eight.

\n

“I thought Cal Poly played outstanding,” Aggie head coach Sandy Simpson said. “It\’s not just

\n

a matter of how they shot the ball, it\’s not a matter of it being a one-person effort with Rachel Clancy, although she was terrific tonight. I thought their entire team played well.”

\n

UCD never trailed in the first half, even starting the game with a 2-0 lead before the opening tip-off after an administrative technical foul was assessed to the Mustangs. The Aggies made four of their first seven 3-point attempts, including two from Deely in the game\’s opening minutes, to help them forge a 16-10 lead with 13:28 to go.

\n

Mintun\’s jumper midway through the half capped a 6-0 run to give UCD its biggest lead at

\n

22-14. But Reeves, who scored all 10 of her points in the first half, scored four straight and Clancy hit a trey to make it 25-24 two minutes later.

\n

Reeves\’ layup tied the game at 28-all with four minutes left in the half, but the Aggies were able to go into the break with a 35-32 advantage. The Aggies made five 3-pointers in the first half to stay on top.

\n

Deely\’s 3-pointer early in the second period put UCD in front 42-37, but the Mustangs scored the next 14 points to take control. The Aggies missed all six of their shots during that span, while Clancy hit a pair of treys. The second of those made it a double-digit lead at 54-44.

\n

Later, a 6-0 surge by the Aggies, including back-to-back layups from Deely and Heintz, brought them within three, but that was as close as they would come.

\n

Both teams did a good job of holding onto the ball, as UCD had just 10 turnovers and Cal Poly committed just nine. But the Aggies also were held to only four steals, nearly 10 below their average.

\n

Heintz had five assists, while Samantha Meggison had three for UCD, which will be back home for a Thursday game against Long Beach State. Tip-off at The Pavilion is at 7 p.m.
