Michael Bryson scores 20, Alan Williams adds 15 and 16 rebounds; UCSB beats UC Davis, 74-60


SANTA BARBARA, California — Michael Bryson scored 20 and Alan Williams had 15 points and 16 rebounds to help UC Santa Barbara knock off Big West Conference-leading UC Davis 74-60 on Thursday night.

John Green added 15 points for UCSB (15-12, 8-5).

Williams, who also had four assists, two steals and four blocked shots, moved into fifth on the school's career scoring list with 1,616. He now has 12 double-doubles this season, despite missing seven games due to a shoulder injury.

Corey Hawkins led UC Davis (21-5, 11-2) with 18 points and Josh Fox had 16.

Two free throws and a jumper by Fox pulled Davis within four with 9:50 left but, following a technical foul, Zalmico Harmon hit a pair from the stripe and Williams made a jumper and UCSB led 57-49 eight minutes to go.

Davis cut its deficit to six twice before a 9-2 run by the Gauchos put the game away.
