STOCKTON — The UC Irvine men’s basketball team failed to shake its road demons Saturday, dropping a 59-53 Big West Conference game at Pacific.

UCI senior Patrick Sanders, however, missed a floating jumper in the lane with 24 seconds left and UOP made three of four free throws down the stretch to improve to 13-5, 4-1 in conference, 7-1 at home.

ANAHEIM — The game ended at about 10 p.m. next to “The Happiest Place on Earth,” but it might as well have been midnight for the UC Irvine men’s basketball team Saturday night at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Anteaters again tried jamming their foot in the glass slipper, but it turned out to belong to a Cal State Fullerton team that topped UCI for the third time this season, 81-66, to end the ’Eaters’ season in the Big West Tournament championship game.
