MALIBU — UC Irvine men's basketball Coach Russell Turner spoke of regression after his Anteaters were defeated, 72-62, by host Pepperdine in a nonconference game Saturday night.

They had bombarded her with hundreds of valentines and pulled every possible political string between Central California and Washington.

Both senior center defenders for Big West Conference Tournament champion UC Irvine, the duo, with their less-than-menacing middleweight physiques, continually shut down opposing attackers with the acumen of master pick-pockets. If it's a shin-scraping tackle, or a strong-armed tug of a jersey to gain positioning that is your idea of entertaining defense, you wouldn't much care for the consummate finesse with which these two former Chino Hills High teammates deliver healthy doses of frustration to strikers whose worth is judged on a statistical scale.

The alumni games continue to get tougher for the UC Irvine baseball program, which fortified its list of former players after last season's team went 43-18 and was one pitch away from earning a trip to the College World Series.
