    RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Nick Gruninger made a game-winning layup with 2.6 seconds remaining to lead UC Riverside past Illinois-Chicago 57-56 on Friday night.

    Illinois-Chicago (5-7) trailed 40-30 with under 16 minutes to play but went on a 20-6 run to build a four-point lead with less than 10 minutes remaining.
