Barry Faulkner The UC Irvine men's basketball team stuck it's collective snout in Sacramento State's 1,400-seat Hornet's Nest Saturday night and the result was a 64-56 loss that is sure to sting throughout the Anteaters' two-week holiday haitus. The Anteaters started sluggishly, came on strong in the second half, but could not survive the swarming defense and three-point shooting of the hosts, who ended a four-game losing skid to improve to 4-5. Hornet senior guard Brandon Guyton sank three three-pointers in the first seven minutes, to help Sacramento State, No. 242 in the Sagarin rankings of Division I programs, build an 18-7 lead.

Pirates Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - The Orange Coast College football team could have probably used some of the intensity a 1951 Pirates team showed in their time. At least that's what Sid Manning thought after he saw the 2001 Bucs surrender five passing touchdowns and lost a 39-16 Mission Conference Central division game to the visiting Fullerton Hornets Saturday, when OCC paid tribute to Coach Ray Rosso's '51 title team. "I thought (OCC) played pretty poorly," said Manning, an all-conference defensive end on the '51 Eastern Conference championship squad.

nothing Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - The party-crashers are coming to town. Those tricky Hornets of Fullerton College will attempt to cut off the celebration when they visit Orange Coast College for a Mission Conference Central division football contest today at 1 p.m. Last year, the Hornets (4-4, 1-2 in the Central division) snapped the Pirates (3-5, 1-2) five-game winning streak and forced the co-championship label on them. This year, Fullerton, which completed three of four trick plays on OCC last season en route to a 47-35 win, will try to crash the party again, as Coast will pay tribute to the 1951 Pirates team, the school's first championship squad.
