NORTHRIDGE — With 1:21 remaining in UC Davis’ 82-74 women’s basketball victory over Cal State Northridge on Thursday at The Matadome, Molly Greubel stepped to the line and knocked down two free throws.

A few seconds later, Aggie Sydnee Fipps nailed a pair from the stripe. Greubel followed with two more, then Fipps posted another perfect trip. Six successful foul shots by Kelsey Harris ended the run, during which UCD made 14-of-16 charity tosses to hold off the Matadors and improve to 10-11 overall and 5-3 in Big West Conference play.

Fipps, who recently passed the 1,000-point mark for her career, led five players in double figures with 21 points, as the Aggies shot 60 percent for the game — including 70 percent in the first half.

Meanwhile, the UCD defense held the second-place Matadors (10-13, 6-3) to just 38 percent from the field to move into a third-place tie.

Fipps finished 7-of-13 from the floor and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc, but perhaps her biggest basket of the game came with 1:41 left. Northridge had cut the Aggie advantage from 13 points down to just two at 63-61, but Fipps buried a 3-pointer from the right corner.

The junior added four rebounds, three assists and two steals in the win, and got help from sophomore Alyson Doherty, who was 5-of-7 from the field to finish with 14 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. Sophomore Celia Marfone scored 11 of her 13 points in the second half to go with six rebounds, junior Kelsey Harris canned 12 points and sophomore Heidi Johnson came off the bench to score 11 and grab six boards in just 14 minutes of action.

Northridge also had five players in double figures, led by Cinnamon Lister’s 18.

UCD returns to the floor on Saturday, traveling to UC Irvine’s Bren Events Center for a 2 p.m. contest.

Notes: The Aggies outrebounded the Matadors, 34-27, and overcame 20 turnovers. … In other Big West games Thursday, Hawaii won, 63-60 at UC Santa Barbara to move into a tie with UCD for third place. Long Beach State fell, 78-58 at UC Irvine and Fullerton held off visiting UC Riverside, 60-57. First-place Cal Poly (7-1) was idle.
