COSTA MESA — Orange Coast College women's basketball coach Mike Thornton acknowledged before Wednesday's showdown with visiting Fullerton that an inordinate amount of good fortune had helped the Pirates remain in contention for an Orange Empire Conference title. But the resounding 70-53 title-clinching victory by the Hornets (26-2, 11-0 in conference), ranked No. 1 in the state, proved it can often be better to be good than lucky. OCC (22-7, 9-2), ranked No. 6 in Southern California and No. 10 in the state, had some early magic, riding a 9-0 run to a 9-3 lead and clinging to a 22-21 deficit with 7:23 left in the first half.

Colleges column by BarryOrange Coast College men's basketball coach Steve Spencer acknowledges the buzz surrounding his team's Orange Empire Conference showdown at Fullerton Wednesday night. And while he is glad it exists -- the apathy that often envelopes community college athletics is a dreary alternative -- Spencer would like for it to avoid the attention of his players. "If you start looking at all the hype and people congratulating you, you can get lost as to what you're trying to do," Spencer said.

Estancia High junior girls' soccer player Alba Barrios is a success story. Barrios' parents, Carlos and Evelyn, immigrated from Guatemala about 20 years ago. They were in Guatemala last weekend, too, and Alba hit them with some great news when they arrived back to California. Alba Barrios has verbally committed to play for Cal State Fullerton, a Division 1 program, she said Wednesday night. "They really got emotional," said Alba Barrios in a phone interview from Northern California, where she is attending a leadership conference through Girls Inc. "They were so proud.

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.

Though there is still work to be done toward the UC Irvine men's basketball team's goal of an outright Big West Conference title, earning at least a share with a victory at Cal State Fullerton on Thursday was something for Anteaters' supporters to relish. UCI fans, who last celebrated a regular-season co-championship in the 2001-02 season, and an outright title a year before that, may also gain encouragement from the play of junior Will Davis in the 62-44 win over the Titans. UCI players and coaches, however, will hold any celebratory antics until Saturday's regular-season and conference finale against visiting UC Davis at 4:30 p.m. UCI (21-10, 10-3 in conference)
