LONG BEACH, California — Corey Hawkins scored 26 points and UC Davis topped Long Beach State 65-58 on Thursday, reaching the 20-win plateau for the first time as a Division I member.

It's the Aggies' sixth win in a row, and 11th in 12 games, as they retained a hold on first place in the Big West (20-4, 10-1).

Hawkins was 9 of 13 from the floor, including 6 of 8 beyond the arc, as UC Davis shot 51 percent from the floor and 9 of 19 on 3-pointers.

Long Beach State trailed 27-16 at intermission and by 18 in the second half, but used an 8-1 run to cut the deficit to six with 48 seconds left on Mike Caffey's 3-pointer. But Caffey, McKay LaSalle and Deonte North all missed 3s in the last 30 seconds and UC Davis held on for the win.

Long Beach State (13-15, 7-5) was led by David Samuels and Caffey with 15 points each. The 49ers were just 5 of 25 on 3-pointers.
