The nearly two-minute UC Irvine video looks like an appeal to prospective students, featuring a montage of undergraduates walking around campus, dancing in classrooms and celebrating big basketball victories. But the target audience becomes obvious at the end, when 7-foot-6 freshman center Mamadou Ndiaye looks directly into the camera while towering over a cardboard cutout of  Barack Obama  and says: "Mr. President, we should play ball together. " The video is the latest and perhaps most visible attempt by a university to attract a high-profile graduation speaker.

Regeneration is a key part of nature, so perhaps it's fitting that the art display at Irvine Valley College's new Life Sciences building arose out of discarded materials. When school officials, Irvine Chamber of Commerce members and others gather on campus Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, one wall of the building's interior will sport a mural and a series of jars holding cycad trees. The surfaces of the mural and jars feature mosaic designs made from broken plates, stained glass, tile, ceramics and more.

Apparently, one way to slow down the state's most productive hitting team is to, well, throw slower pitches. Fullerton College sophomore left-hander Nick Morton used that approach to help the visiting Hornets edge Orange Coast, 3-1, in an Orange Empire Conference baseball battle on Tuesday. OCC, ranked No. 1 in Southern California, entered the game leading the state in hits (219), doubles (40) home runs (nine), batting average (.317) and slugging percentage (.443). But Morton, with his repertoire of slow, slower and slowest, kept the Pirates off balance to earn his fourth win in five decisions and his third complete game.

Andrew Morales is referring to his record when he says he starts every game at 0-0. But if one applies the concept of zeros to his earned-run average this season, it may also mean he is merely picking up where he left off. The UC Irvine senior right-hander threw eight shutout innings to help the host Anteaters earn a 1-0 win over Gonzaga on Saturday in the first of a three-game nonconference series. Morales (3-0), who struck out a career-high 12, has not allowed an earned run in 30 innings this season.

The so-called quality start has become downright quantifiable this season for the UC Irvine baseball team, which rode a completely serviceable pitching performance and some opportunistic hitting to its seventh straight victory Tuesday. The 6-4 win over visiting USC (8-3), which has suddenly lost three of its last four, was the 12th time in as many games this season that UCI (9-3) has allowed three or fewer earned runs in the first six innings (the statistical definition of an individual quality start)
