Steve Virgen The time has come again for UC Irvine. It's time for the UCI men's basketball team to receive another challenge. It's time for the Anteaters to play at Utah State. UCI, which overcame a three-game losing streak with two straight wins last week, will face Big West Conference rival Utah State tonight at 5:35 at the Smith Spectrum. The Anteaters (13-7, 7-4 in the Big West) are one game behind the Aggies (17-5, 8-3), who are in a tie for first place in the Big West with UC Santa Barbara.

LOGAN, UTAH - Senior guard Jerry Green hit a jumper with less than a second left to lift UC Irvine over a stunned Utah State, 67-66, in a Big West Conference men's basketball game at Dee Glen Smith Spectrum Thursday night. The Anteaters (11-4, 4-0 in the Big West Conference) remained the only undefeated team in the circuit and snapped the Aggies' 31-game win streak at home. It was the third largest current home winning streak in the nation. UCI led, 64-63, with 38 seconds remaining.

ANTEATER STADIUM - UC Irvine had no trouble Sunday, easily defeating Utah State in Big West women's soccer play. The outcome marked the largest margin of victory for the Anteaters, in addition to scoring the most goals in a game, since the end of the 1993 season when they defeated Chapman by the same score. Hayley McNallan once again got on the scoreboard first, a 23rd minute goal by way of Robyn Piotrowski's indirect kick. Caroline Kabe rounded out the first-half scoring in the 39th minute when Gina Hintz set her up from the right corner, the first of her three assists.

IRVINE — Saturday night was about reopenings for the UC Irvine men’s basketball team, which broke the seal on the moderately renovated Bren Events Center. But, just as the Anteaters did when they opened the Bren for the first time — posting a 22-point victory over visiting Utah State on Jan. 8, 1987 — the hosts opened up a can of whoop- ... well, one might just say the visiting Aggies were out of it late in the opening half. UCI finished with a 70-51 triumph Saturday, using a 14-0 run that swelled to 23-2 late in the first half to overwhelm its former Big West Conference rival.

UC Irvine junior point guard Aaron Fitzgerald scored 17 first-half points to post the lone highlight for the visiting Anteaters, who dropped a Big West Conference men's basketball game at Utah State, 87-49, Saturday. Fitzgerald was held scoreless after intermission as the visitors managed just 19 second-half points to fall to 13-12, 6-10 in conference. Utah State (21-7, 12-5) got 22 points from freshman guard Jaycee Carroll and 21 from senior forward Spencer Nelson before 10,270.

Barry Faulkner BREN EVENTS CENTER -- Late second-half drama had been unkind to Utah State in its uncharacteristic 0-3 Big West Conference road start this season. But the visitors' 77-52 men's basketball triumph over UC Irvine Thursday night, before 2,831 at the Bren Events Center, was less "Who done it?" than "Which Aggie didn't?" contribute to the most lopsided UCI home loss since 1997. "It was one of those nights," Utah State Coach Stew Morrill said of his team's final visit to its familiar nemesis as a member of the Big West.

Steve Virgen With a touch of flair, a dab of luck and a mountain of determination, the UC Irvine men's basketball team achieved an emotional 59-58 Big West Conference victory over Utah State in front of 8,041 at the Smith Center Thursday night. For the second time this season, UCI senior guard Mike Hood proved to be the Aggie killer. Hood, who hit the game-winning, buzzer-beating shot for a 75-73 overtime win Jan. 15, canned two free throws with 1.3 seconds left to give UCI the victory that ended Utah State's nine-game home winning streak.

The UC Irvine men's basketball team has been picked to finish third in the Big West Conference in separate preseason polls voted upon by coaches and media. The Anteaters, who won or shared the regular-season conference title in 2001 and '02 and were second in last year's regular-season race, finished behind defending regular-season champion UC Santa Barbara and Utah State, which won the conference tournament last season, in both polls. UCI senior Adam Parada, a 7-foot center who has twice earned second-team all-conference honors, was named to the six-member preseason all-conference team.

UC Irvine junior post Kevin Bland has been named the Big West Conference Player of the Week in men’s basketball. He averaged 16 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.5 steals last week as UCI lost to Nevada, 77-68, and defeated Utah State, 70-51.

MEN’S BASKETBALL Utah State 74, UC Irvine 62 LOGAN, Utah — The Anteaters were tied at halftime and within four with 10:46 remaining, but the Aggies extended their winning streak to 57 in regular-season nonconference home games to drop UCI to 0-6. Junior guard Michael Hunter had 17 points, including four three-pointers, while freshman Eric Wise added 15 points, five rebounds and four assists for the visitors, who...

The UC Irvine men?s basketball team?s 2008-09 schedule includes three teams that played in the NCAA Tournament last season, including USC in the regular-season opener at the Galen Center on Nov. 15 and at home against Oregon, Nov. 21. The other NCAA Tournament team on the slate is Big West Conference rival Cal State Fullerton. The Anteaters play host to the Titans in the Big West Conference opener Jan. 3 and visit Titan Gym in the Big West regular-season finale on March 7. Cal State Fullerton defeated UCI, 81-66, in the championship game of the Big West Conference Tournament last season to earn the school?

Adversity was both a blessing and a curse for the UCI men’s basketball team, which completed its season Saturday night in the championship game of the Big West Conference Tournament at the Anaheim Convention Center. The No. 5-seeded Anteaters (18-16) were defeated, 81-66, by Cal State Fullerton (24-8), which settled for the No. 3 seed after sharing the conference regular-season crown with UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Northridge. It was the fourth game in four days for UCI, which might have benefited from the depth that was significantly diminished when community college transfer Adam Rodenberg was first felled by a season-ending hernia, then left the program.

IRVINE ? After its first eight possessions produced seven turnovers and one missed field-goal attempt, the hope of a fresh start might have seemed a reasonable request for the UC Irvine women?s basketball team Sunday. But, it seems this season, even when the basketball gods appear amenable to negotiation, the ultimate result for Coach Molly Tuter?s Anteaters (4-11) is a swift kick between the jersey numbers. UCI, in fact, got its restart, erasing a 17-point second-half deficit to force overtime against nonconference visitor San Diego at the Bren Events Center.

When most coaches talk about getting over the hump, they’re referring to a nebulous, sometimes-shifting plateau that often defies description. For Vanguard University men’s basketball coach Fred Litzenberger, the term can be narrowed down to around the midway point of the second half. That’s about the time things started to go awry for the Lions last season, when they finished 7-22, 4-16 in the Golden State Athletic Conference. No fewer than 12 times, Vanguard had second-half leads fall away in games it eventually lost.
