DAVIS – Corey Hawkins scored 21 points and Ryan Sypkens became UC Davis' career and single-season three-point leader as the Aggies defeated Hawaii 89-65 Thursday night.

Sypkens, a graduate of Franklin High School, entered the game tied for both marks and hit 5 of 7 three-pointers, finishing with 17 points for UC Davis (10-13, 6-6 Big West Conference). The junior guard now has 88 three-pointers this season (breaking Fowzi Abdelsamad's record set during the 2004-05 season) and 202 in his career (a mark also held by Abdelsamad).

Paolo Mancasola and Tyler Les scored 11 points each and J.T. Adenrele (Oakmont High) had 10 for the Aggies, who were 11 for 19 on three-point attempts and outrebounded the Warriors 38-29.

Hawaii (15-10, 9-5), which had a five-game win streak snapped, received 17 points from Hauns Brereton and 12 from Brandon Spearman.

North Dakota 49, Sacramento State 48 in Grand Forks, N.D. – Troy Huff had 13 points and 10 rebounds as North Dakota held off the Hornets.

North Dakota (11-13, 8-7 Big Sky Conference) scored eight straight points to take a 43-35 lead with 8:04 remaining and pushed the lead to 48-38 with about five minutes left.

North Dakota scored only one point the rest of the way but hung on after John Dickson missed a desperation three-pointer at the buzzer for Sacramento State (12-11, 7-8).

Dickson had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Hornets, and Konner Veteto had 16 points and nine rebounds. Dickson and Veteto combined to shoot all 13 free-throw attempts for Sacramento State and made 11.

Dylan Garrity had six of the Hornets' 11 assists.

North Dakota shot just 34.5 percent, including 5 of 19 on three-pointers.

Sacramento State was worse, shooting 33.3 percent and making just 1 of 10 from beyond the arc.
