The Daily Pilot returned to covering UC Irvine last fall after a 10-year hiatus and, right now, we couldn't be more proud of our decision. UC Irvine men's basketball team provided everyone a great run this season. Posting a great 20-11 record, the Anteaters traveled to Provo, Utah, to play in the National Invitation Tournament earlier this month. Though they were obviously disappointed with a first-round loss against BYU, the Anteaters proved to many this season how well they can contend with the better-known basketball schools.

Richard Dunn FULLERTON - It was louder in Titan Gym Saturday night for UC Irvine's visiting Anteaters than for Cal State Fullerton, which probably can't wait for the Big West Conference men's basketball season to end. "It always seems like a home game at Fullerton. They don't get too many fans here," said UCI senior guard Jerry Green, who became the school's all-time leading scorer on his first bucket in the Anteaters' 72-46 Big West victory over the Titans (4-16, 1-10 in conference)

For the second year in a row, UC Irvine senior guard Jerry Green has been named Big West Conference Player of the Year in men's basketball. "He's Mr. Clutch," UCI Coach Pat Douglass said after the honor was announced Monday. "He has been remarkable with the key buckets he has made in his four-year career. Hopefully, he has some more left in him. Jerry has been the key man to make a free throw or a clutch shot." Also earning all-conference honors was sophomore center Adam Parada, a second-team selection.

When Jerry Green finished his star-studded career last season there seemed to be a feeling of an end-of-an-era for the UC Irvine men's basketball program. However, while the Green era ended, the foundation was set. The Anteaters still believe they can reach the NCAA Tournament, a feat that has not been accomplished in the program's Division I history. UCI has never reached the Big Dance, never been a bracket-buster, or a bubble breakthrough. Still, no matter what the critics predict or expect, and no matter what has happened in the past, the Anteaters believe they will be dancing in March.

Amara Aguilar UC Irvine junior guard Mike Hood is usually a pretty reserved guy. Doesn't talk much. He's usually not the leading scorer for the Anteaters' men's basketball team. Definitely not the star player. That role belongs to senior guard Jerry Green, the Anteaters' all-time leading scorer. But Saturday night against visiting Utah State, it was Green who wasn't making a statement on the court. Green scored two points in the first half for the Anteaters, who trailed 35-19 at halftime.

Richard Dunn SAN DIEGO - There are some things UC Irvine men's basketball Coach Pat Douglass just can't explain, such as why his Anteaters have never defeated the University of San Diego. The host Toreros (5-3) rallied from a first-half deficit and slowed down UCI's vaunted scoring machine, Jerry Green as they beat the Anteaters, 63-52, Tuesday night in nonconference action. Green, who ranks fifth nationally with a scoring average of 24.9 points per game, was limited to just 16 points against the Toreros, shooting five of 13 from the field, including four of 11 from three-point territory.

Amara Aguilar Four years ago UC Irvine wasn't even a blip on the radar of men's college basketball along the West Coast, but there was a glimmer of hope for the program in a young player out of Pomona High named Jerry Green. The Anteaters went from sixth in the Big West during Green's first season on the team in 1998-99 to first in the conference last season. Green was named the Big West Player of the Year last season and in tonight's contest against host Cal State Fullerton he will most likely become the school's all-time leading scorer.
