IRVINE — What could easily qualify as the best run in UC Irvine women's soccer history continued Friday night, thanks to a dramatic and fortuitous skip. Junior CoCo Goodson's slicing free kick from 28 yards out, averted a three-player defensive wall, then fooled Pacific goalkeeper Tashia Long with 1:40 left in the second overtime to give the Anteaters another sign that they are in the midst of a season that has, thus far, been special. Goodson's goal was the difference in a 1-0 Big West Conference-opening triumph.

LA MIRADA - Illinois is of course known as the Land of Lincoln. But Olivet Nazarene, an NAIA Division II women's basketball program from Bourbannais, about 50 miles south of Chicago, would likely find three-point land a more appropriate moniker. The Tigers, who came in ranked No. 10 in their division, launched 68 of their 101 field-goal attempts from three-point range in an 89-77 loss to Vanguard on Friday in the opening round of the Biola Holiday Classic at Biola. Vanguard (8-0)

Steve Virgen UC Irvine is riding a five-game winning streak and sits in a three-way tie for first place in the Big West Conference. Meanwhile, University of the Pacific is on a four-game losing streak and is in sixth in the Big West. In addition, the Tigers' men's basketball team is dealing with injuries to its two top players. All signs point to a UCI victory, right? Not necessarily. "You can't really forecast who's going to win," UCI Coach Pat Douglass said of the competition in the Big West this season.

Tony Altobelli COSTA MESA - Finally, it's time for the hits, tackles, touchdowns and blood to count for something as the Orange Coast College football hosts Riverside for the 2000 season opener tonight at 7. "We're excited to get underway," Coach Mike Taylor said. "Me and the coaches have been looking at the tape and we appear faster than we were last year, which is a plus." The Pirates, 4-6 last year and 2-3 in the Mission Conference's Northern Division, are going to need every bit of speed to take on the Tigers, who walloped OCC, 48-15, last year.

IRVINE — Its close proximity to the blue Pacific is a recruiting advantage for the UC Irvine men’s basketball program. But a more meaningful advantage was gained by the black-and-orange-clad University of the Pacific at the Bren Events Center Thursday night. The visiting Tigers’ physical defense came at the hosts in waves, helped frustrate the Anteaters, most notably their sophomore star Eric Wise, in Pacific’s 61-50 Big West Conference triumph in front of 995. UCI’s point total was its lowest since its 89-42 trouncing at Texas on Nov. 15, a span of 19 games.
