Steve Virgen On the surface, it appears the UC Irvine men's basketball team will be able to regain confidence and some rhythm today at 3:05 p.m. at Saint Mary's. However, take one look, preferably inside and down low, and you'll find the Anteaters have a big challenge in front of them. It is also a sizeable test for 7-foot junior center Adam Parada, who scored seven points before fouling out in UCI's 84-57 loss at Stanford Thursday. Parada only played 15 minutes against the Cardinal and never established himself as an inside presence, mainly against 6-10, 275-pound center Rob Little.

IRVINE — Bored is how Coach John Speraw had described his UC Irvine men's volleyball team. The mood troubled the fifth-year coach with the postseason around the corner. "We've got a lot of seniors on the team and that shouldn't be happening," Speraw said. "Maybe I didn't understand how much of an issue it was for us until the UCLA match." For one night, the attitude issue seemed to solve itself a week after allowing the Bruins to come back two games down to win. Those helping correct the third-ranked Anteaters' frame of mind were Speraw's four seniors, Matt Webber, Jayson Jablonsky, David Smith and Brian Thornton.

Several members of the UC Irvine men's volleyball team indicated before the NCAA Championship pairings were announced Sunday that a semifinal rematch with Penn State would add to the list of things going the Anteaters' way during the postseason. And UCI Coach John Speraw knows exactly how they feel. No. 3-ranked UCI (27-5), which earned the program's first Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament title with a five-game win over No. 1-ranked Pepperdine Saturday night on the Waves' home floor, will, in fact, open the four-team NCAA Championship by taking on the Nittany Lions (22-7)

IRVINE — As with most teams this early in the season, the UC Irvine men’s volleyball squad is lacking consistency. But, perhaps blessed like few others, Coach John Speraw showed Wednesday night that the Anteaters figure to have the option of a consistent Plan B. Speraw brought four players off the bench who contributed significantly to the No. 3-ranked Anteaters’ 30-27, 24-30, 30-25, 30-27, win over No. 7-ranked Pepperdine in...

COLUMBUS, Ohio — It's more irony than blasphemy, but Arnie's Army has overrun the Ohio State University campus, upon which sits the Jack Nicklaus Museum that honors the golf legend and one of the most famous former Buckeyes. The Arnie in question is not longtime Nicklaus rival Arnold Palmer, but Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne men's volleyball coach Arnie Ball. Palmer fans were known for years as Arnie's Army, and they comprised most of the large galleries that used to follow the famed golfer on the course.
