IRVINE — Their edge was the first to go. Next, went the lead. Finally, it was first-year coach Russell Turner's temper that made the final departure in the UC Irvine Anteaters' 85-70 nonconference men's basketball loss to San Jose State on Saturday at the Bren Events Center. The Spartans (5-2) used an overwhelming backcourt to overcome an 11-2 deficit, eventually taking control toward the end of a first half in which the Anteaters led for the first 13:28. But when senior guard Justin Graham converted a three-point play that put the visitors up, 18-17, the Spartans never trailed again.

The UC Irvine men's water polo program is known for creeping up on the competition, starting slowly and peaking in the postseason. But with seven noteworthy seniors on the roster, Coach Marc Hunt's Anteaters appeared to be slightly more advanced as they dived into Saturday's season-opening action at the UCI Invitational. "We're one of those build-and-develop teams," said Hunt, now in his sixth season at the helm of a program in which he twice earned All-American honors under legendary then-coach Ted Newland.

OMAHA, Neb. — For most of the 283 NCAA Division I college baseball teams, Rosenblatt Stadium, the site of the College World Series, is a mystical, magical place to be dreamed of and never realized. But the 2007 UC Irvine Anteaters, a program that did not exist when most of its stars were in high school six years ago, the sights, smells, sounds, and sweetness of Omaha in June will forever be viewed as reality. In a season of firsts, the group of brothers Coach Dave Serrano said made up this team, finally played their last game, losing to defending national champion Oregon State, 7-1, in front of 29,921.

OMAHA, Neb. — The UC Irvine baseball players who continually talk about how they have each other's backs, put another storied program behind them Tuesday with yet another dramatic postseason victory before 29,034 at the College World Series. The No. 4-ranked Anteaters (47-16-1), rallied from a four-run deficit to tie the score in the eighth inning, then eliminated No. 3-ranked Arizona State in the 10th when sophomore center fielder Ollie Linton pulled a two-two pitch through the right side of a drawn-in infield to drive in Matt Morris from third with one out. That capped the Anteaters' third straight can-you-believe-it victory.

A 32-30, 30-23, 31-33, 27-30, 15-13 loss to Penn State in the semifinals of the NCAA Championship Thursday at the Nittany Lions' Rec Hall seemed to leave UCI players and coaches realizing how far they needed to go, rather than how far they had come. "To go out like that was rough," said junior second-team All-American opposite Matt Webber, who tied American Volleyball Coaches' Assn.
