IRVINE, Calif. -- Daman Starring scored 16 points and Adam Folker had 13 points and 13 rebounds to lead UC Irvine to a 68-59 victory against Pacific on Wednesday night.

Will Davis II added 13 points and Michael Wilder 12 for the Anteaters (15-13, 9-6 Big West).

Tony Gill scored 17 points off the bench and Lorenzo McCloud added 11 for the Tigers (15-11, 9-5), whose slim hopes for the Big West's regular-season title likely took a final hit. Pacific fell 3 1/2 games behind Long Beach State and has four conference games remaining.

The Tigers shot 19 of 57 (33.3 percent) from the field.

The game was tied at 38-all in the second half when Wilder made the first of UC Irvine's six 3-pointers in the next 5:11. Wilder and Travis Souza had two each during the surge, and when Starring hit from behind the arc, the Anteaters led 58-46 with 6:29 remaining.

Pacific got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.
