    STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) -- Christian Maraker had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and two-time defending Big West Pacific handed UC Irvine its first conference loss of the season, 64-52 on Thursday night.

    The second-place Tigers (15-6, 5-2) led the entire second half to move closer to Irvine (12-9, 8-1) in the Big West standings and end the Anteaters' eight-game winning streak.

    Anthony Esparza also had a double-double for Pacific with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Anthony Brown just missed with eight points and 10 rebounds.

    Maraker and Esparza keyed Pacific runs of 9-0 and 7-0 in the final 12 minutes as the Tigers built their biggest lead, 62-46, with 2:57 remaining.

    Patrick Sanders scored 15 points and Adam Templeton scored 11 for the Anteaters, who beat Pacific 70-61 on Jan. 15 in Irvine.

    Each team had a six-point lead in a first half that featured seven ties and four lead changes. Irvine had its biggest lead at 22-16 eight minutes before the break, but Pacific responded with a 12-0 run on its way to a 33-28 halftime advantage.
