DAVIS — Junior Eric Wise scored a career-high 34 points and added 12 rebounds for the visiting Anteaters in the dramatic Big West Conference game Saturday.

Wise left the game early in the second overtime with an undetermined leg injury and Davis (8-12, 3-5 in conference) led most of the overtime, behind 10 points from Mark Payne.


After Patrick Rembert's driving bank shot gave UCI (10-12, 3-5) a 107-106 lead with 4.2 seconds left, Payne fielded a long pass and made a layup while being fouled with 2.1 seconds remaining.

Payne, who led the winners with 32 points, missed the foul shot and Chris McNealy's subsequent full-court heave missed as time expired.

Rembert had 19 points and McNealy had 13 for UCI, which had won two straight conference road games coming in.

Mike Wilder hit a three-pointer with 24 seconds left to pull UCI within 106-105.

The five Davis starters combined for 102 points.

Davis was 13 for 28 from three-point range, while UCI was four for 15. UCI was 21 of 35 from the foul line and UC Davis was 21 for 32.
