MALIBU - Freshman lefthander Glenn Swanson handuffed host Pepperdine on two hits, striking out five and walking one as he led the UC Irvine Anteaters to an 8-2 nonconference baseball victory. The Anteaters (9-9) struck for three runs in the first inning and never trailed, adding single tallies in the fourth and fifth to stretch the lead to 5-1, then iced it in the eight with three more as they wasted six Pepperdine pitchers with a 13-hit attack. First baseman Matt Anderson was 4-for-5 and scored twice, catcher Chris Miller, with his sixth double of the season, was 2-for-43 with an RBI and two runs scored; and second baseman Effren Trejo was 2-for-3 with three RBIs.

MALIBU — Coach John Speraw knew his No. 2-ranked UC Irvine men’s volleyball team would be under pressure on the road against No. 3-ranked Pepperdine Friday night.

That helped the Waves prevail, 27-30, 30-27, 39-37, 30-26, in a showdown for first place in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.

For Barry Faulkner's blog, click here. IRVINE — With typically the tallest lineup in the country, the Pepperdine men’s volleyball program presents such a daunting physical challenge, it usually prevents teams from rising to the occasion in an initial meeting. But No. 2-ranked UC Irvine, which fell in four games at Malibu on Feb. 20, stepped up in the rematch, Saturday, before a season-best home crowd of 2,587, at the Bren Events Center. The Anteaters’ 31-29, 30-24, 30-22 thumping of the top-ranked Waves created a tie for first place in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation between the two with two regular-season matches remaining.

MALIBU - Compensation for college athletes is a hot topic lately, but most agree nothing should be accepted without being earned. The Pepperdine baseball team, however, received a collective bargain of two unearned runs to help beat visiting UC Irvine, 4-3, in a nonconference game Tuesday. Two errant pickoff throws, one to first base by starting pitcher Evan Marino, and another to third from catcher Jerry McClanahan, led to a pair of "freebies" to help the Waves (21-7) prevail on a day when they produced half as many hits as the Anteaters.

There is, in UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie's esteemed opinion, no room for error with the Anteaters this season, let alone two. Two UCI errors contributed to three unearned runs in the sixth inning, though there were other concerns as well in a 6-0 nonconference setback to visiting Pepperdine on Tuesday. The Anteaters (13-7) matched the Waves (14-6) with nine hits, but stranded 13 runners to Pepperdine's three. The result was the 'Eaters third blanking of the season, their third straight defeat, and four losses in the last five games, coming off what had been a school-record 10-game winning streak.

MALIBU - The road to a potential third straight national championship  has begun somewhat tenuously  for the UC Irvine men's volleyball team.  But some of that has to do with, well, playing on the road. In the fifth of their six straight road matches to open the season, the Anteaters, who began the season ranked No. 1 nationally but slipped to No. 3 after falling at Loyola of Chicago last week, dropped their Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opener, 25-21, 25-21, 23-25, 25-19, to an amped-up Pepperdine squad that had yet to play an official match until Friday.

After dropping its lone home game in December to Pepperdine, 75-69, on Friday, the UC Irvine men's basketball team will take a full week off before hitting the road for four games in the subsequent two weeks. And with the number of ways Coach Russell Turner identified that his team (5-5, 3-3 at home) is struggling, perhaps it's best that the Anteaters and their fans spend some time apart. "We're not going to make the NCAA Tournament with what we're doing now, but what we do now is really important," Turner said after his team let a 10-point halftime lead slip away against the Waves (6-4)

It would be more dramatic to think of a tennis racquet gathering dust in Natalie Raney's home. But in reality there are no tennis racquets. There isn't even tennis apparel or tennis merchandise there. To put it simply, when it comes to tennis for Raney: love really does mean nothing. Raney, formerly Natalie Braverman, has a much different life now. For 17 years, basically all of her youth, tennis consumed her life. But now she's all about real estate and her marriage. The former Newport Harbor High tennis standout who excelled at Pepperdine did gain lasting qualities from the sport and she applies those characteristics today.

IRVINE - First-year coach David Kniffin insists that his top-ranked UC Irvine men's volleyball team is still searching for its defining elements. But after the Anteaters dispatched No. 4-ranked Pepperdine, 25-22, 25-20, 25-21, in their Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and home opener at the Bren Events Center on Tuesday, it appears that the defending national champions certainly haven't lost much. UCI (4-0), which captured the crown with three victories at the UC Santa Barbara Invitational over the weekend, displayed no visible weaknesses in handling the Waves (0-1)
