    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -- Ryan Moore rebounded his own missed jumper and sank a layup at the buzzer to lift UC Davis to a 66-65 comeback victory over UC Riverside on Monday.

    The game-winning shot came after Larry Cunningham blocked Rommel Marentez's shot with five seconds remaining. Moore, who finished with 25 points, grabbed the ball and was able to get off two shots in the final seconds.

    UC Davis (6-8) trailed by as much as 15 points in the second half, but a 14-5 run cut the lead to 60-59 with 2:50 left. Klaus Schille sank one of two free throws to give the Highlanders a 65-64 lead with 29 seconds left, setting up the final series of plays by the Aggies.

    UC Riverside (4-8) may have lost star forward Vili Morton for the rest of the season after he fell awkwardly while chasing an offensive rebound with 55 seconds left. Morton, who had 25 points, was taken off the floor in a stretcher and the team said the injury will be evaluated.

    Rickey Porter added 14 and Steve Williams had 12 for the Highlanders, who sank just just 19-of-30 free throws.

    The Aggies got 16 points from Fowzi Abdelsamad and 10 from Justin Stearns.
