    DAVIS, Calif. -- Donovan Morris scored 27 points to lead Long Beach State over UC Davis 86-78 on Saturday night.

    Freshmen Casper Ware and Eugene Phelps scored 13 points each for the Long Beach State 49ers (9-7, 4-0 Big West).

    Mark Payne had 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to lead the UC Davis Aggies (6-10, 1-2 Big West). Vince Oliver added 19 points for Davis.

    Trailing 20-12 halfway through the first half, the 49ers bounced back, staging a 33-7 run capped off by a 3-point shot by Morris to make the score 45-27 at the 3:37 mark.
