The UC Davis women’s basketball team never trailed at the Thunderdome on Saturday, defeating UC Santa Barbara, 65-47.

Their third straight victory was huge for the Aggies (13-14, 8-6), who moved into fourth place in the Big West Conference with two regular-season games remaining next week, both at home.

It also was a big day for junior Sydnee Fipps, who led UCD with 18 points and eight rebounds, along the way passing three players — including her coach, Jennifer Gross — to move into seventh on the all-time Aggie scoring list.

Fipps paced three UCD players in double figures, using a 7-for-9 performance from the line to bolster her point total.

In addition to Gross, she jumped over Lisa Jo Kellogg and Kari Sivesind with her career total of 1,158 and is now just 93 points from matching Ellen Porshneva for sixth all-time.

On Saturday, Alyson Doherty had 15 points and seven rebounds for the Aggies, while Molly Greubel was perfect from the field (4-for-4) and the line (5-for-5) to finish with 14 points.

UCD used a pair of big runs to break the game open early, including a 13-0 burst to take a 15-2 advantage out of the gate. The Aggies then held the Gauchos (8-19, 3-11) scoreless for more than six minutes and used a 9-0 spurt to lead 39-25 at intermission.

The locals kept pushing their advantage in the second half and eventually went up by as many as 22 points in the final minutes.

UCD shot 44 percent from the floor — including 58 percent in the first half — and out-rebounded UCSB, 41-34. The Gauchos shot 32 percent from the field and were led by Melissa Zornig’s 12 points.

The Aggies close out the regular season with UC Riverside (Thursday at 7 p.m.) and UC Irvine (Saturday 2 p.m.) at The Pavilion.
