SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- TJ Shorts II scored 18 points with seven assists, Joe Mooney added 17 points and UC Davis broke away late to defeat Cal Poly 63-53 Thursday night for a season sweep of the Mustangs.
Donovan Fields drove for a score to pull Cal Poly to 44-43 with just under nine minutes left to play but Shorts answered from beyond the arc. Fields again got the Mustangs to 49-47, but UC Davis (7-14, 3-4 Big West Conference) scored the next six points, capped by a Mooney 3-pointer with 3:28 to go, and the Aggies weren't threatened again.
