RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) Stacy Davis scored 23 points and hit a pair of crucial free throws in the final seconds Wednesday night as Pepperdine fought off a late second-half rally by UC Riverside and won 69-66.

The Highlanders, trailing by as many as 11 early in the second half, climbed back to tie up the score 63-63 with 33.7 seconds remaining. Davis went to the line and made both free throws, giving Pepperdine a two-point buffer as the Highlanders took possession.
