The week that began with Mustache Monday at UC Irvine's Bren Events Center, went on to feature a pair of extremely close shaves.
The Anteaters' men's volleyball team took care of visiting Hawaii in four games, the first of back-to-back Mountain Pacific Sports Federation wins over the Warriors, to start the prosperous week at the Bren.
Several UCI players sported real and artificial mustaches and hundreds of fans donned imitation black, blond or gray lip accessories passed out as part of a promotion that played off the Island connection of television's Magnum P.I.
Even game officials caught the spirit of the brainchild of UCI assistant coach David Kniffin, who added Magnum's trademark Detroit Tigers cap to complete the effect.
The close shaves in question were a pair of double-overtime wins by the men's basketball team, Thursday against UC Davis and Saturday against Pacific.
