RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- TJ Shorts II scored 23 points and made all 11 of his foul shots and UC Davis beat UC Riverside 84-71 on Saturday night.

UC Davis (6-14, 2-4 Big West) built a 9-0 lead and never trailed. The Highlanders (8-16, 2-6) didn't reach double-digits until Ryker Pierce's layup 8:50 before halftime made it 27-11. The Aggies led 38-22 at halftime when Dikymbe Martin buried a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Callum McRae made two free throws with 8:48 left to reduce the deficit to 55-47 but the Aggies never got closer.
