Led by J.T. Adenrele, who scored a team-high 19 points, the UC Davis men’s basketball team defeated Menlo College, 97-76, in an exhibition game on Tuesday night at The Pavilion.

With its preseason schedule now completed, the Aggies travel to face Oklahoma State in their season opener on Friday.

Adenrele was one of three UCD players to score in double digits, with Ryan Sypkens adding 15 points and Josh Ritchart chipping in 14. In addition, Tyler Les connected on all three of his three-point shots to finish with nine points, Ryan Howley sank eight points on his 4-of-5 shooting performance, while Corey Hawkins, Darius Graham and Olivier-Paul Betu scored seven points apiece.

“(We had) the ball swinging from side to side, a number of different guys were touching it,” second-year UCD coach Jim Les told The Enterprise. “They really like each other, so they’ve been sharing the ball really well and I noticed guys giving up good shots to get great shots.

“We have the type of skill, where if they get a good look at the rim, they’re going to shoot a high percentage.

The Aggies shot 55.6 percent from the field, and led from start-to-finish against the Oaks. UCD made 10-of-20 from behind the arc and held the Oaks — who are coached by former Aggie standout Jon Surface — to 44.6 percent shooting.

I’m really pleased with our team,” Les said. “We haven’t been able to do it consistently for forty minutes yet, but we’ve really been stressing defense and rebounding.

“When our guys lock in and have energy at that end of the floor, good things happen and good things equate to us getting out and running, pushing the ball, and we’re a pretty explosive offensive team. If we can buy in to getting stops and having a defensive identity, this team is going to be a lot of fun to watch play.”
