Chris Harriel scored 14 points and Taylor Johns added 11, helping UC Riverside snap a seven-game losing streak with a 54-45 victory over UC Santa Barbara on Wednesday night.

Chris Patton chipped in 10 points for the Highlanders (6-20, 3-11 Big West), who rebounded from a 75-35 loss to Long Beach State — the fourth game this season in which Riverside scored 40 points or fewer.

Alan Williams had 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Gauchos (8-17, 4-10), including two free throws with 14:28 to play that put Santa Barbara ahead 32-29.

Riverside held Santa Barbara to 26 percent shooting and won despite committing 18 turnovers.
