IRVINE — UC Irvine’s 74-59 Big West Conference men’s basketball victory over conference co-leader Pacific came with abundant symmetry Thursday night at the Bren Events Center. First, the victory was No. 164 in 11 seasons at UCI for Coach Pat Douglass, who surpassed former Anteaters head man Bill Mulligan to become the school’s all-time coaching victories leader. That he did it against his alma mater, which is coached by his former Pacific teammate and now best friend, Bob Thomason, made it even more poignant, even Douglass had to admit.

IRVINE — Form held Saturday in the Big West Conference men’s basketball game won by host UC Irvine, 67-53, over UC Riverside. But not without the Anteaters having to do some considerable tweaking to their defensive philosophy. UCI Coach Pat Douglass, concerned over a deficiency in perimeter quickness and the Highlanders’ ability to create shots with ball screens, abandoned his traditional man-to-man defense for a one-two-two zone with about five minutes left in the first half.

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. Back-to-back three-pointers by sophomore guard Michael Hunter pulled the Anteaters within 56-53 with 1:07 left, and UCI had the ball with a chance to tie after Darren Fells rebounded a Pacific miss on the Tigers’ subsequent possession. 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.

IRVINE — Junior guard Brett Lauer is no longer the feel-good, crowd-favorite, sparkplug off the bench for the UC Irvine men’s basketball team. Making his fifth straight start, his eighth in 16 games this season, against visiting Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Saturday, the 6-foot-1 transfer from San Diego Mesa Community College showed he has become a valued and reliable offensive weapon for the Anteaters. Lauer, who tied his career-high with 14 points in Thursday’s home win over UC Santa Barbara, scored 20 to key a 73-69 Big West Conference triumph over the Mustangs, before 1,512 at the Bren Events Center.

IRVINE — The UC Irvine men’s basketball team proved Thursday night that the best way to counter an apparent free fall was to initiate stop, after defensive stop, after stop. Clutch defense down the stretch virtually eradicated any need for offense in the Anteaters’ 66-63 Big West Conference triumph over preseason conference favorite UC Santa Barbara. This was a good thing, since the hosts went 5:50 without a point, until Patrick Sanders made two free throws with 0:00.
