College Roundup: UCI loses Bracketbuster


Nevada 74, UC Irvine 63

RENO — Senior guard Patrick Rembert had 13 points and four assists to pace the Anteaters in the BracketBuster nonconference road game Saturday.

Daman Starring and Derrick Strings had 11 points apiece for UCI (11-17).

UCI forced 16 turnovers and committed just 11, but shot 38.3% from the field and lost the rebounding battle, 46-28. UCI never led.

Senior Darren Moore, UCI's leading scorer at 17 per game, had a season-low four points. He was two of seven from the field in 20 minutes.

"We are an 11-17 team and I believe we should be better," UCI Coach Russell Turner said afterward. "We have to find a way to redefine ourselves for the remainder of the season."

UCI plays host to UC Davis on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Nevada is 11-15.



UC Irvine 4, Oklahoma State 2

IRVINE — The host Anteaters earned four singles wins to claim the rain-shortened nonconference match Saturday.

Chris Kearney, Sam Gould, Fabian Matthews and Shan Sondhu won in the Nos. 1, 2, 4 and 6 spots to help UCI improve to 6-4.

Kearney has won six straight singles matches.

The Cowboys are 2-4.

Doubles were not played due to the rain.
