NEWPORT BEACH — It's a common assumption in Newport Beach that kids grow up with a connection to the ocean. However, many children live a 15-minute drive from the water's edge but have rarely, or never, dipped their feet in the Pacific. That's where "Day at the Bay" comes in. On Friday, 23 Santa Ana students, ages 14 to 19, from the Nicholas Academic centers spent their day at the bay. UC Irvine hosted the day, which began with a quick Back Bay lesson at the science center, then the teens took kayaks out on the water.

Mariners Elementary students greeted UC Irvine basketball players Wednesday afternoon with about as much fanfare as one might expect if a teenage pop sensation visited the Newport Beach campus. The students clamored around the college athletes for their chance at an autograph and, if they were lucky, a selfie with one of the basketball players. Six men and women from UCI's basketball programs visited the fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade classes at the Newport Beach elementary school to talk about sports and the importance of earning a degree.

It would perhaps be easier for UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie to deal with his unbeatable pitching duo getting beat, if Thursday's nonconference series opener against visiting San Diego State weren't so, well, winnable. But it was the Aztecs who dealt the Anteaters some seldom-seen futility in a 3-1 victory that lit Gillespie's fuse. UCI senior starting pitcher Andrew Morales threw seven shutout innings and handed the ball over to the nation's most productive closer in Sam Moore, after Morales had thrown 106 pitches.

Undefeated at UC Irvine and untouchable at home, Anteaters senior pitcher Andrew Morales continued his mound mastery Friday night, blanking UC Riverside, 8-0, in the Big West Conference baseball opener at Anteater Ballpark.

DALLAS - The UC Irvine men's basketball completed its season on Wednesday, falling at SMU, 68-54, in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament.

Big West Conference Freshman of the Year Luke Nelson had a team-best 13 points and added five rebounds and four assists, while junior Will Davis had nine points, 11 rebounds and one blocked shot.

For the second straight game, the UC Irvine men's basketball team will attempt to pony up, when the Anteaters visit the SMU Mustangs in the first round of the NIT on Wednesday at 6 p.m. PT. UCI (23-11), the Big West Conference regular-season champion, is making its fifth appearance in the NIT after falling to the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Mustangs, 61-58, in the semifinals of the Big West tournament on Friday at Honda Center.

ANAHEIM - Consistency is among the requirements for postseason success and the UC Irvine Anteaters proved, at least through one game of the Big West Conference men's basketball tournament, that they are who we thought they were. Top-seeded UCI handled No. 8-seeded UC Riverside, 63-43, in the quarterfinals Thursday at Honda Center, virtually mirroring two previous wins over the Highlanders this season. The win propels UCI (23-10) and ranked No. 14 in the CollegeInsider.com mid-major poll, into a semifinal clash Friday at 6:30 p.m. against No. 7-seeded Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

ANAHEIM - This was not the kind of history UC Irvine had in mind. But for the first time in 39 Big West Conference men's basketball tournaments, the Anteaters became the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 7 seed. The 61-58 setback to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo ended the Anteaters' hopes of making their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament. UCI (23-11), will instead compete in the National Invitational Tournament for the first time since 2002. Information on UCI's NIT pairing will be available Sunday or Monday, a UCI athletic department spokesperson said.

At several key instances in the Big West Conference game against visiting UC Davis on Saturday afternoon, the UC Irvine women's basketball team uttered a collective groan when one of its shot attempts bounded or swirled in-and-out. But, thanks in large part to the third double-double of the week for a UCI player, the Anteaters were able to prevail, 79-73, in overtime to complete a two-game home conference sweep for the week and inch up the congested Big West standings. Junior Methlyn Onomoguho loaded up on the stat sheet for the winners, producing 20 points and 13 rebounds for her second double-double of the week.
