When Allen Hardison sifted through letters from NCAA Division I universities for soccer five years ago he never thought his life would end up where it is now. He never dreamed he would playing in a college football bowl game in New Mexico on Saturday. But that's where his life is now, as a kicker for the University of Nevada. His dreams have changed from the ones he had while playing soccer at Corona del Mar High, from which he graduated in 2007. "To say that I had a dream of playing in the NFL when I was growing up, I would be lying," Hardison said in a telephone interview from New Mexico, where the Wolf Pack (7-5)

IRVINE — Miranda Forry had taken just two previous shots in the second half, missing both of them. But the UC Irvine senior forward, the Anteaters’ most dangerous outside shooter, was who UCI assistant coach Chris Ellis drew up the play for late in the ‘Eaters’ 77-74 nonleague win over Nevada on Saturday night at Bren Events Center. Coming off screens from Stephanie Duda and Kelly Cochran, Forry was open in front of the UCI bench. She buried the three-pointer, giving UCI a 75-72 lead it wouldn’t relinquish with 28 seconds to play.

IRVINE — Things continue to come together for the UC Irvine baseball team, and there's nothing Anteaters Coach Dave Serrano likes to see blended more than pitching and defense. With that in mind, one might consider Saturday's 3-0 nonconference victory over visiting Nevada a diamond smoothie. "That's how you win championships," Serrano said of defense and pitching, which was abundant whenever the blue-jerseyed Anteaters took their positions. Junior Wes Etheridge pitched eight innings, allowing just four hits, to improve to 6-0, while senior closer Blair Erickson worked the ninth for his seventh save this season.

RENO, Nev. ? Though the UC Irvine women's basketball lost, 69-68, to Nevada on Sunday, the game just might be considered as Naomi Halman's breakthrough performance. The 6-foot-4 freshman from the Netherlands scored a career-high 22 points, 20 of those coming in the second half. However, the Wolf Pack's Dellena Criner hit a pair of free throws with 16 seconds left for what proved to be the winning points for Nevada (5-5) in its nonconference home victory. Halman scored eight unanswered points during a two-minute, seven-second span, pulling the Anteaters (2-7)

IRVINE - You never get a second chance to make a first impression. But it certainly helps if you get the rebound . UC Irvine gnawed, clawed, banged and barged its way to 21 of its 51 rebounds on the offensive glass to earn an eye-opening 78-64 nonconference men's basketball win over Nevada in front of 1,561 at the Bren Events Center on Saturday. The Anteaters posted a plus-14 rebounding advantage over the Wolf Pack, who won 28 games in a 2011-12 season that ended in the NIT quarterfinals.

IRVINE ? Former UC Irvine starting pitcher Dylan Axelrod has clearly found coming out of the bullpen to be, well, a relief. The senior right-hander, who in three early starts gave up 13 earned runs and 14 hits in 8 1/3 innings (a 15.1 ERA), continued a string of strong relief performances Sunday to help lead the Anteaters to a 7-4 nonconference baseball triumph over Nevada at Anteater Ballpark. Axelrod, who took over for starter Reid Suitor with two on and no outs in the third inning, battled out of that jam and worked five hitless innings to earn his first victory of the season.

It took a rejection from a sandwich chain for Troy Feist to realize that he should just start his own. Fresh out of high school and 19 years old, Feist always loved food - sandwiches, in particular - and he figured opening up a Togo's might be a good idea. So he and a friend made an appointment at the Togo's headquarters in San Jose. "We met with them for maybe about five minutes before they shooed us out of their office," Feist said. But it was a blessing, he remembered thinking, because now he could make sandwiches the way he wanted.

IRVINE - Among the myriad fundamentals in which the UC Irvine baseball players are well-versed, home-run trot is not one. Senior second baseman Tommy Reyes, then, could surely be forgiven for pleading ignorance on the finer points of the four-base circuit required to complete a fence-clearing blast. Reyes had, in fact, compiled 431 collegiate at-bats without a dinger, before jettisoning a pitch over the left-field barrier at Nevada on Saturday. Only nine at-bats later, he produced his second career big fly by launching a 1-2 pitch over the fence in left field for a two-run shot that wound up being the difference in the Anteaters' 5-4 nonconference win over visiting Dartmouth on Friday.

IRVINE — Crosby Slaught picked up right where he left off, sort of. There was, of course, the little matter of a two-year absence from the UC Irvine baseball team's starting rotation. But the junior right-hander, who was 8-0 as a sophomore Sunday starter in 2009 but redshirted last season with an injured tendon in his pitching arm, blanked visiting Nevada for five innings and gave up just one run in 62/3 innings to record the nonconference victory Sunday at Anteater Ballpark.
