LOS ANGELES - UC Irvine senior Camille Buckley may have helped the Anteaters secure their 63-60 women's basketball win at Loyola Marymount on Friday afternoon. But it wasn't until a few moments after she buried two free throws with 14 seconds left to finalize the scoring that she took her best shots at the Lions. "I couldn't sleep last night, because I was so worried about it," the 6-foot-1 forward said of her first game against the program at which she spent her first two collegiate seasons, before transferring.

The soccer gods sometimes award the opportunists more than the oppressors, but Orange Coast College benefited from being a little of both to advance past Los Angeles Pierce on Tuesday into the third round of the Southern California Regional playoffs. The No. 11-seeded Pirates (13-3-5) posted a 23-8 shot advantage and controlled play approximately 85% of the 120 minutes of regulation and overtime.

"I couldn't concentrate in school, and I could barely hold a coherent conversation with my friends," Schaeffer, 22, recounted.

Ruiz, who said she has a hard time with relaxation in pressure situations, calmed herself enough to bury her penalty kick, the sixth attempt of the post-match shootout for the Lions, to propel the hosts to the second round of the tournament that runs Dec. 2-7 in Orange Beach, Ala.

Jordan Davidson is a finisher. Whether on the business end of a cross, a through ball, a corner kick or a rebound, the speedy 5-foot-2 Vanguard University women's soccer forward has deposited 29 goals into the net in two years with the Lions. She scored 28 in two seasons at Paradise Valley Community College in Arizona. A conference player of the year and a first-team junior college All-American, she has twice been named Golden State Athletic Conference Player of the Year and is a virtual lock to repeat the first-team All-American recognition this year that she received as a junior.
