Davis’ 16 points key win at Fullerton, giving UCI at least a share of first Big West title since 2002.


UCI (21-10, 10-3 in conference), ranked No. 14 in the CollegeInsider.com mid-major poll, remained one game ahead of UC Santa Barbara, which defeated Hawaii on Thursday. The Anteaters can claim the outright championship by defeating last-place UC Davis (9-21, 4-11), the lone conference team not in the Big West tournament, on Saturday, or a UCSB loss at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
