Sophomore Sydnee Fipps scored a game-high 27 points, including 10 during a key 13-2 run midway in the second half, as UC Davis picked up a crucial 70-56 Big West Conference women's basketball win over UC Riverside on Thursday, UCD reported.

The Aggies snapped a two-game losing streak and won their second straight home game.

UCD entered the week in seventh place, a half-game in front of UC Riverside as both teams try to hold off ninth-place UC Irvine and 10th-place Cal State Fullerton for the final two Big West tournament berths.

The Aggies improved to 11-14 overall and 6-8 in the conference, while the Highlanders fell to 11-13 overall and 4-9.

UCD swept the season series from UC Riverside.
