CORONA DEL MAR - Corona del Mar High senior Mike Hayes, a first-team All-Pacific Coast League fullback last fall, has signed a national letter of intent to play football at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound two-year starter, also played several positions on defense for the Pacific Coast League co-champion Sea Kings. Expected to be a leading receiver out of the backfield heading into the season, Hayes broke his thumb in the preseason scrimmage, hampering his pass-catching much of the year.

IRVINE — Those eager to dismiss the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo baseball team as a pretender in the Big West Conference race this season may want to take a SLO, hard look at Friday's performance against No. 17-ranked UC Irvine. The Mustangs (19-17, 6-1 in conference) strengthened their position atop the Big West standings with a 5-4 victory before 1,280 at Anteater Ballpark. The loss dropped UCI (24-9-1), which many had anointed as the team to beat after early conference series wins over Cal State Fullerton and Long Beach State, two games behind the Mustangs.

Barry Faulkner UC Irvine Coach Pat Douglass acknowledged that rebuilding was an applicable term for his men's basketball program this season, after it lost 10 of its final 12 Big West Conference games last season to miss the eight-team conference tournament. But with the overhauled Anteaters (5-2) set to tip off conference play tonight at 7:05 at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (2-5), there are those who believe a run at a third conference crown in five seasons is not out of the question.

With its next game six days away, the UC Irvine baseball team can use a little reflection time to spin their recent struggles, which continued Saturday with a 4-3 nonconference loss to visiting San Diego State. Despite dropping the three-game series to the Aztecs, losing three of four games during the week and falling to 2-6 in their last eight nonconference games, the Anteaters actually might have improved their position in the Big West Conference standings by being the odd team out of the weekend fray in the nine-team conference.

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.

A weekend of rain signaled an end to the Southern California drought, but when it came to scoring, the Bren Events center men's basketball court was, at least for one half on Saturday, a veritale desert.
