Sypkens ties school record as UCD falls to Cal Poly

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Sinking five of his six attempts from behind the arc, UC Davis’ Ryan Sypkens tied the school’s single-season record for 3-pointers (83) on Saturday at Cal Poly’s Mott Gym.

But despite Sypkens’ team-high 17 points, the Aggies fell to the Mustangs, 68-53 in a Big West Conference contest.

UCD sophomore Corey Hawkins scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half and finished seven rebounds, while sophomore J.T. Adenrele chipped in another 10 points. Recording the eighth double-figure rebounding total of his career, senior guard Ryan Howley  paced the Aggies (9-13, 5-6) with 11 boards and added six points.

Sypkens recorded two of his five treys during a second-half UCD comeback attempt that fell short. With eight regular season games remaining, the Elk Grove native who prepped at Franklin needs just one more 3-pointer to set a new record. Sypkens tied for former Aggie guard Fowzi Abdelsamad, who set the mark in the 2004-05 season.

On Saturday, Cal Poly guard Dylan Royer led the Mustangs with 20 points.

“Defense travels, offense doesn’t always travel,” said UCD head coach Jim Les. “I thought we were not as aggressive on defense as we needed to be. We needed to be the aggressor, step up on defense and set the tone for the game. When we watch the tape, everyone is going to see the difference between Thursday night (defensive effort) and (Saturday).”

Trailing Cal Poly (11-11, 7-5) at halftime, the Aggies put together a 10-2 second-half surge to whittle the Mustangs lead to 12 with 3:13 remaining.

The scoring spree was fueled by two threes by Sypkens, a bucket from Hawkins and a rim-rattling dunk by Howley that brought the UCD bench to its feet and silenced the crowd.

The Aggies were able to trim another point from their deficit as the game progressed, but Cal Poly ended the evening by making seven of eight free throws to clinch the victory and extend its home win streak against Big West teams to 11.

UCD now returns home for a matchup with Hawaii on Thursday at 7 p.m.
