LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Armond Davis had 24 points and 11 rebounds and UC Santa Barbara pulled away over the final 10 minutes to beat Long Beach State 82-71 on Saturday night.
UCSB trailed by one with 10 minutes to go before a 10-2 run made it 61-54 on Heidegger's 3-pointer. Mason Riggins' dunk for Long Beach State stopped the Gauchos' run and cut the deficit to five, but that was as close as the 49ers would get as UCSB steadily pulled away to lead by as many as 13 in the final minute.
