'Eaters face Western Michigan

UC Irvine men's basketball coach Pat Douglass said last week

Western Michigan backed out of playing against the University of

Oklahoma in the Sooner Invitational. There will be no backing out

now.

The Anteaters, who lost to No. 7 Oklahoma Friday, will face

Western Michigan today at 10 a.m. (PST) in a consolation game in the

Sooner Invitational. The Broncos lost their opener to Princeton,

62-59.

Western Michigan, which was picked to finish second in the

Mid-American West Division behind Ball State, was led by forward Mike

Williams, who scored 12 points. Reggie Berry added 11 points, while Anthony Kann contributed 10 rebounds.

"It's a quick turnaround for us," Douglass said. "We don't know

much about Western Michigan, just from what we've seen on tape and

(Friday) against Princeton. I know what we did wrong against

Oklahoma.
