IRVINE — The UC Irvine men’s basketball team rode what one might call the hobo offense to reach its desired destination Saturday night. In order to first get to overtime, then prevail in the extra session for a 78-71 Big West Conference victory over visiting UC Riverside in front of 3,693 spectators at the Bren Events Center, the Anteaters moved the ball down and out. Down low, then out beyond the three-point arc, that is, using the kick-out from inside to create and convert open three-pointers on its final possession of regulation, then two of its first three offensive trips in the five-minute overtime to pull away from the Highlanders.

IRVINE — Having seen his team officially dispense with the formalities by capping a three-game series sweep with an 11-3 victory over Big West Conference visitor Cal State Northridge Sunday, UC Irvine baseball coach Dave Serrano was eager to talk about the task at hand. "We're playing for the Big West championship," Serrano said of the regular-season-ending three-game series at UC Riverside that begins Friday. The No. 12-ranked Anteaters improved to 38-14-1, 13-5 in conference, with their third straight dismantling of the Matadors.

IRVINE - Even in a sport known as "the beautiful game," there is no allowance for style points. In fact, where it needed them most, there were no points at all for the host UC Irvine men's soccer team, which twice lost leads before losing a Big West Conference match, 3-2, to UC Riverside. The No. 9-ranked Anteaters were the most aesthetic and offensive team on the pitch in its final regular-season home game of the season. UCI posted a 20-8 advantage in shots over the Highlanders.

IRVINE — UC Irvine men's basketball coach Russell Turner declined to share what he told his players after a 73-68 Big West Conference-opening loss to visiting UC Riverside on Tuesday. But the Anteaters surely will hope they never here such disparaging words again. UCI (6-7) led, 49-39, with 12:13 remaining, but went the next 10:34 with only one field goal. The Highlanders (5-7) used that cold spell to not only regain their bearings, but also take control of the game.

RIVERSIDE - UC Irvine ventured to UC Riverside for the Big West Conference baseball opener on Friday and a telethon broke out. How else to describe the spirit of giving that pervaded in the Highlanders' 4-3 victory at the Riverside Sports Complex? Both teams donated costly mistakes to the cause, with UC Riverside getting a jump on things, only to benefit in kind. Ultimately, it was two miscues by the Anteaters - one of which manifested itself in an error that marred the box score for the team that entered the game leading the nation in fielding percentage - that spelled doom for UCI. It was the 'Eaters' first loss in a conference opener since 2006.

FULLERTON - The end for the UC Irvine women's soccer team came without precedent, and left little room for explanation. And, after No. 3-seeded UC Riverside scored in the 107th minute to end the two-overtime Big West Conference Tournament semifinal at Cal State Fullerton, UCI Coach Scott Juniper wasn't even left with any hope. "I think there is no chance," Juniper said of a potential at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament, after his team, seeded No. 2 in the conference tournament that propels its winner into the NCAA field, fell to 11-7.

RIVERSIDE — It was fitting, perhaps, that UC Irvine junior ace Matt Summers kept posting zeroes during his complete-game two-hitter in a 12-0 thumping of host UC Riverside that opened a three-game Big West Conference series Friday night. Some believe Summers, who tied his career high with 10 strikeouts and threw 92 pitches in the Anteaters' first complete game of the season, continued to add to a now-consistent body of work that may help add a zero or two to a professional contract that looms after his selection in the June draft.

RIVERSIDE - There is taking what the opponent gives you and there is taking what you simply decide the opponent can't deny you. UC Riverside accomplished the latter in handing visiting UC Irvine a 68-58 Big West Conference men's basketball defeat Saturday. The Highlanders (5-13, 2-4 in conference), who had lost three straight against Big West competition, dominated inside and shot better from the perimeter to halt the Anteaters' three-game conference winning streak that had allowed them to earn a share for second place entering Saturday.

IRVINE — Still closer to the middle of the pack than the leaders of the Big West Conference, this was one series in which the UC Irvine baseball team was supposed to gain ground. After two games against visiting UC Riverside, however, the Anteaters have been relegated to middle ground. The Highlanders (10-23, 4-4 in conference) halted their seven-game losing streak by outplaying the No. 5-ranked ’Eaters (24-8, 6-5) in all facets, evening the three-game series at one game apiece with a 5-3 victory that UCI may long regret.
