The scouting report on the Vanguard men's basketball team begins with the “arc enemy.” That's a trio of veteran Lions guards who pride themselves on inflicting pain from distance. And even though Golden State Athletic Conference visitor Biola knew it needed to focus on senior Preston Wynne, junior Chris Gorman and junior DeAngelo Jones on the perimeter, Vanguard's long-range arsenal made sure Eagles' hopes for victory didn't last, well, long. Wynne nailed five of his seven-three-point attempts in the first half and Jones was three for three from beyond the arc to help the hosts make nine of 12 from threesome in the opening 20 minutes.

Steve Virgen There were several reasons Vanguard University was stunned by Biola in a Golden State Athletic Conference women's basketball game Saturday. But Lions freshman Kelly Schmidt pointed to the one that she thought was most important after Vanguard, ranked No. 4 in the NAIA, lost to visiting Biola, 85-66. The Lions defeated Biola, 89-37, Dec. 2, but the Eagles were different this time. And, apparently so was Vanguard. "It didn't feel like us," said Schmidt, who scored 13 points, nine less than her season average, which leads the GSAC.

LA MIRADA — When asked if Wednesday's come-from-ahead Golden State Athletic Conference loss at Biola may haunt him for a while, Vanguard University baseball coach Rob Pegg said he didn't believe in ghosts. But the 6-5 setback to the sixth-place Eagles helped make a 5-2 lead and a chance to gain sole possession of third place with just five regular-season conference games remaining, vanish like an apparition in a ninth inning that proved to be frightfully unfortunate for the visitors.

Scott Torrey allowed just one earned run and seven hits in nine innings in Game 1 to improve to 4-1.

COSTA MESA - While the Vanguard University women's soccer team continues to add to the trophy case, Lions Coach Randy Dodge said it's the pillow case that should be foremost on his players' minds. With a landmark season swinging into its stretch run, including a 2-1 victory over visiting Biola in the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament title game Friday to propel the No. 4-ranked Lions into the 32-team NAIA Tournament, Dodge hopes his players continue to consistently justify their peace of mind before nodding off each night.
