IRVINE - History renders it rare and the rankings tell us it's an upset. And with two penalty kicks constituting the difference, some might even call it a fluke. But UC Irvine senior leader Enrique Cardenas, who like most of the Anteaters roster experienced an excruciating 2012 campaign, believes UCI's landmark 3-1 nonconference men's soccer victory over No. 11-ranked UCLA on Thursday is merely what the determined 'Eaters deserve. "Personally I don't believe in luck," said Cardenas, who booted in two penalty kicks to help the Anteaters, ranked No. 24 by College Soccer News and No. 25 by TopDrawerSoccer.com, improve to 4-1-2 with their second win over a ranked team this season.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY - Joseph Di Giulio has plenty of good memories on the tennis courts at Los Caballeros Racquet & Sports Club. The Newport Beach resident won singles titles at the Southern California Junior Sectionals in the boys' 10s, 12s and 14s age divisions. He was top-ranked in the nation for a time in the latter two divisions. Now, Di Giulio is not a young kid, but instead a young man. He stood on the Los Cab courts Saturday in a blue UCLA T-shirt, which makes sense because he'll be playing for the Bruins next year.

Corona del Mar High senior linebacker James Christian's high school football career ended after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the second game of the season, but his playing days don't appear to be over. Christian has been asked to be a walk-on player at UCLA, CdM Coach Scott Meyer said Wednesday. Christian injured his left knee on the third defensive play of the game against Western. Meyer had big plans for Christian, a 6-foot-3, 190-pounder who was playing football for the first time since he was a freshman.

IRVINE - A pair of errors led to two unearned runs in the 12th inning to help visiting UCLA earn a 6-4 nonconference baseball victory at UC Irvine on Tuesday.

IRVINE - Former UC Irvine men's volleyball coach John Speraw forged a lot of special memories, including three national championships, during a 10-year stint at the Anteaters' helm. And in his initial return to the Bren Events Center as the head man at UCLA, the only thing that might have supplemented his feel-good evening was a red carpet in front of the visiting bench. Speraw's No. 4-ranked Bruins dispatched the short-handed No. 2-ranked  'Eaters, 25-16, 25-16, 19-25, 25-17, on Saturday, allowing Speraw to smile broadly as he reconnected with old friends before and after the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation match.

LOS ANGELES - John Speraw may have taken his talents to Westwood, but the balance of power, at least for now, remains at his former UC Irvine home. For the second time this season, the Anteaters, who Speraw led to three NCAA titles in a 10-season tenure that ended when he returned to his alma mater in the recent off-season, topped the Bruins in five games. This time, the 25-19, 22-25, 20-25, 25-20, 15-11 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball triumph came at Pauley Pavilion.
