NORTHRIDGE — Playing an NCAA Division I opponent on the road, Vanguard University, an NAIA school, might have expected to take a lump or two Thursday night. But after a 94-49 drubbing at the hands of host Cal State Northridge, Lions’ Coach Fred Litzenberger was doctoring what he feared had become a hematoma. “I told [the players] ‘You can’t let what happened here ruin what a great start we’ve had,’ ” Litzenberger said. “And so you’ve got to wash it out of your mind, because it doesn’t mean anything.

IRVINE — The UC Irvine women’s volleyball program honored a bit of its history Saturday night, then went about doing its best to make sure that history repeats this season. Before the Anteaters took on visiting Cal State Northridge, several players from the 2004 squad that went to the NCAA Tournament were introduced at Crawford Court. Coach Charlie Brande also unfurled a banner commemorating the accomplishment, which will be displayed in the venue, along with those honoring NCAA appearances in 1988 and 2003.

NORTHRIDGE ? Still just two games behind conference-leading Cal State Fullerton in the loss column with nine conference games to play, the mathematical possibilities exist for the UC Irvine baseball team to challenge for the Big West Conference championship. But, as the Anteaters proved Sunday in a 4-1 loss at Cal State Northridge, counting on victories against even traditionally downtrodden conference foes has become problematic. The loss, which ended a seven-game winning streak against the Matadors, dropped the No. 13-ranked Anteaters to 30-12, 8-7 in conference.

NORTHRIDGE — Time was running out on UC Irvine when Carlos Aguilar entered late. Aguilar was hurting, shin splints and he was under the weather. The rest of his teammates weren’t feeling much better Saturday. At stake was the Big West Conference men’s soccer championship at Cal State Northridge. Seeing his Anteaters struggling to take advantage of numerous scoring opportunities, Coach George Kuntz called on the junior striker in the regular-season finale.

IRVINE ? The No. 21-ranked UC Irvine men's soccer team knew it was a big game on Wednesday night against Cal State Northridge.

NORTHRIDGE — The Cal State Northridge men’s basketball team exceeded its defensive goals Saturday night, which was bad news for UC Irvine shooters trying to make field goals from anywhere but long range. The Matadors’ smothering defense, which made the Anteaters work to move their offense inside the Northridge free-throw line, let alone the key, paved the way to a 74-55 Big West Conference home win in front of 1,308 at the Matadome. “We haven’t faced anything like that all year,” UCI point guard Michael Hunter said of the extended Northridge pressure that Matadors Coach Bobby Braswell said met the standing goal of at least 33 deflections (of passes and/or shots)

With the UC Irvine baseball team this season, Moore has meant less for opposing hitters. Anteaters junior closer Sam Moore nailed down his nation-leading 15th save Saturday to help UCI claim a 5-4 Big West Conference victory over visiting Cal State Northridge. It was the fourth consecutive conference game that Moore has saved for UCI and the 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-hander has not blown a save opportunity this season. Moore got the final five outs Saturday, the 10th time he has pitched more than one inning to collect a save, and continues to defy the odds, as well as hitters, by collecting outs without big-time velocity.

ANAHEIM - The six remaining seniors in uniform for the UC Irvine women's basketball team played their final three games in socks that displayed the skyline of their native region. It was a fitting gesture for an Anteaters' team that played, by any measure, well above the clouds all season long. The Anteaters (17-15), picked to finish eighth in the nine-team Big West Conference, fell to top-seeded Cal State Northridge, 78-60, in the semifinals of the conference tournament on Friday at Honda Center.

Twenty games into a college career already draped with mythology, UC Irvine's 7-foot-6 Goliath has already established some Mamadou's and don'ts. The don'ts include extreme caution for opponents when entering the vicinity of the basket, before which the Anteaters' wide-eyed leather detector typically anchors himself, his tentacle-like arms raised high to just about rim level. Ndiaye stood his ground and defended his air space well enough to record seven blocks to help host UCI earn a 72-66 Big West Conference men's basketball victory over Cal State Northridge on Thursday at Bren Events Center.

It's not as if they take success for granted, but the players and coaches for the UC Irvine men's soccer team have come to expect nothing less than championships. Just more than one week after claiming their fourth Big West Conference regular-season title, the Anteaters defeated Cal State Northridge, 1-0, on Sunday to earn their fourth conference tournament crown in six seasons. This year's success, which comes with an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament, for which pairings will be announced on Monday, comes on the heels of an unfortunate 2012 campaign in which Coach George Kuntz's 'Eaters dropped 10 one-goal decisions and finished 5-14-1, 2-8 in conference.

IRVINE - The offense is producing in bunches and the pitching is more than holding its own. But with one game left in the regular season, the UC Irvine baseball program may be on the verge of an eight-month break. Despite an 8-4 win that clinched the three-game Big West Conference series victory against visiting Long Beach State on Friday, the Anteaters (33-21, 15-11 in conference) can finish no better than tied for third in the conference. And even in that scenario, they would lose the tiebreaker to UC Santa Barbara.

IRVINE — There is a difference between missed opportunities and blown opportunities. And, based on the decibel level of UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie's postgame address to his players, the latter had more to do with the Anteaters' 2-1 Big West Conference loss to visiting Cal State Northridge on Saturday. It was the Matadors' first win at Anteater Ballpark since 2005, as they had lost 10 straight at UCI. UCI (22-9, 4-4 in conference), which is now 11-7 in games decided by two or fewer runs, failed to get a hit in six at-bats with runners in scoring position.

NORTHRIDGE - Toward the latter portion of the second half, Cal State Northridge junior guard Josh Greene lay sprawled on his back, the victim of a collision that rendered him motionless with the beginnings of a discolored mouse under his left eye. Greene, however, proved to be as difficult to keep down as his team in a men's basketball clash Thursday with visiting UC Irvine. Greene came back to hit consecutive threes in the final two minutes to help propel the Matadors to a 70-61 Big West Conference triumph that left coaches for both teams scratching their heads.
