IRVINE — One of two seniors being honored on senior night, Nic Campbell stumbled midway through the first half of Thursday's nonconference home finale at the Bren Events Center. Campbell's UC Irvine men's basketball teammates stumbled, briefly, as well in the second half. Neither misstep, however, turned out to be more than an unfortunate footnote to the Anteaters' 73-59 victory in front of 2,479. Campbell, who scored 43 points in two games last week, including a career-high 24 in Saturday's loss at San Francisco, was felled with a right-ankle sprain with 9:32 left in the opening half.

IRVINE - It wasn't the box score, so much as the roster that UC Irvine men's basketball coach Russell Turner used to sum up his team's 66-50 Big West Conference loss to visiting Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on Thursday. "The one thing I take from this is that we need to get stronger," said Turner, whose team (6-11, 3-2 in conference) was hurt most by Cal Poly big men Will Taylor (16 points), David Hanson (16 points and 12 rebounds and four assists) and Chris Eversley (11 points and eight boards)

IRVINE - UC Irvine freshmen Will Davis and Aaron Wright came up with big plays in the closing minutes to key a hard-fought men's basketball victory Saturday night. But whether they will have the courage to relate their heroics in the future, remains in question. That's because it took a game-tying three-pointer by Wright with 1:09 left, a put-back credited to Davis with 49 seconds remaining, and a blocked shot by Davis with 18 ticks left to help preserve a 75-73 win over Vanguard, a victory that UCI believed should not have been anywhere as precarious as it turned out. Vanguard, an NAIA school that played the game as an exhibition, nearly came away with a signature win that would not have counted on its 6-4 record.

IRVINE — It all started when someone asked Kelly Smith what she would do if she had a magic wand to change the world. Her answer — to help kids learn and realize what's special about them — sparked a dream that blossomed into the Center for Living Peace in Irvine. "I spent a lot of time as a young mother taking my kids to mommy-and-me classes in what I called the 'bubble' of Orange County," Smith said. "I thought: What if we were having fun and learning about the world outside of our own bubbles at the same time?
