IRVINE — Visiting Concordia University, an NAIA school, surprised UC Irvine, 57-56, in the Anteaters’ preseason men’s basketball exhibition game Monday at the Bren Events Center.

CHAMPAGNE, Ill. — Senior guard Darren Moore scored 15 of his team-best 18 points in the second half, but visiting UC Irvine could not overcome a sluggish first half in a 79-65 season-opening nonconference men's basketball loss at No. 13-ranked Illinois on Monday. The Illini opened a 34-8 lead and were in command, 42-18, at halftime in front of 15,287 at Assembly Hall. But UCI, which had four players score in double figures, outscored the hosts, 47-37, in the final 20 minutes.

IRVINE — Like most programs in November, the UC Irvine men's basketball team is missing a few elements that might lead to greater success down the road. And for most of three-day, three-game challenge that was the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer subregional, one of those elements was sitting on the bench in street clothes. Junior Eric Wise, a two-time second-team All-Big West Conference performer who led the team in points, rebounds and assists last season, missed the final two games with a hip flexor strain that allowed him to play only 14 minutes of the first game Friday.

IRVINE — With 12:49 left in the game, a brief physical skirmish broke out between players from both teams that resulted in a pair of technical fouls. But for the UC Irvine men’s basketball program, which had lost four straight and seven of its last eight, including a 13-point nonconference setback at Cal State Bakersfield Wednesday, push had come to shove well before tipoff of Saturday’s rematch with the Roadrunners at the Bren Events Center. The result was an inspired effort that produced a 76-63 triumph for the Anteaters.

IRVINE — There was so much good news to digest Friday night, UC Irvine men's basketball coach Russell Turner took a while to identify the most difficult part of his Anteaters' 83-68 nonconference win over Wyoming at the Bren Events Center. "It's going to be hard to keep finding a way to get everybody minutes," Turner said while surveying a stat sheet that recorded a balancing act that any coach would covet. Five players scored in double figures for UCI, which improved to 5-4 and snapped a two-game home losing streak.

IRVINE — The up-tempo brand of basketball is one most fans enjoy, but coaches are a more discerning audience. So, despite UC Irvine posting its most lopsided win in five seasons and its highest point total since 2004, first-year men's coach Russell Turner was less than euphoric about the Anteaters' 99-63 drubbing of visiting Vanguard on Wednesday at the Bren Events Center. UCI exploded to a 61-39 first-half lead, then cruised to its sixth win in its last eight games behind five double-figure scorers.

The recently captured UC Irvine men's basketball team picture is certainly the "Before" image that second-year coach Russell Turner hopes to one day look back upon with possession of a successful "After. " With eight freshmen, no seniors and only two players among five holdovers from a 13-19 season that started more than one game, getting there from here is a journey few expect the Anteaters to complete this season. But with so much still unproven - an average of .71 years of Division I experience per player makes UCI the youngest team in Division I this season - Turner said he is hesitant to either reveal or limit expectations.

IRVINE — With five teams tied for third place in the Big West Conference entering Thursday night's men's basketball action, balance might be a descriptive word associated with the nine-team league. But off-balance may be a more fitting assessment of the play of UC Irvine, which continued its schizophrenic tendencies in a 66-62 conference setback to visiting Cal State Northridge in front of a library-like 1,115 at the Bren Events Center.

IRVINE — When UC Irvine men's basketball coach Russell Turner said after the Anteaters' fourth straight loss Thursday that his team has a funny personality, he didn't mean funny hah-hah. Instead, he was referring to the recent slump that has coincided with junior star Eric Wise's return to the starting lineup. Wise, a preseason all-conference pick who strained a hip flexor muscle in the second game at USC, missed five games and came off the bench in two others before starting the last four contests.

He doesn't wear glasses, prefers sociology to science, and his super powers are limited to the supremely athletic movements of a Division I men's college basketball standout. So, when it comes to comparisons, UC Irvine senior guard Darren Moore is aligned much more with Peter Parker than the slightly nerdy comic-book everyman's more famous alter-ego: Spider-Man. But thanks to growing exposure of the tattooed image of a spider perched atop a web on the front of Moore's muscle-rippled upper torso, some fans have begun referring to the Anteaters' scoring leader and co-captain as "Spidey.

IRVINE — Their edge was the first to go. Next, went the lead. Finally, it was first-year coach Russell Turner's temper that made the final departure in the UC Irvine Anteaters' 85-70 nonconference men's basketball loss to San Jose State on Saturday at the Bren Events Center. The Spartans (5-2) used an overwhelming backcourt to overcome an 11-2 deficit, eventually taking control toward the end of a first half in which the Anteaters led for the first 13:28. But when senior guard Justin Graham converted a three-point play that put the visitors up, 18-17, the Spartans never trailed again.
