UC Irvine 91, Cal Poly-SLO 84

Darren Moore scored 24 points and UC Irvine defeated Cal Poly

San Luis Obispo 91-84 in overtime Saturday night to extend its

the Big West tournament. Instead they are the No. 7 seed and will

face the sixth-seeded Mustangs (11-18, 7-9) in the first round

Wednesday.

Irvine trailed by 10 with 5:01 left in regulation but rallied

with four 3-pointers in the final 38 seconds, including one by

Darren Moore with under a second left that tied the score at

74.

Cal Poly led 78-77 with 2:13 left in OT before the Anteaters

ended the game on a 14-6 run.

Shawn Lewis led the Mustangs with 26 points and 10 rebounds.

Lorenzo Keeler added 21 points, and David Hanson finished with 11

points and 10 rebounds.
