Nevada was accepted Wednesday into the Western Athletic Conference, landing another blow to the Big West Conference. WAC officials voted in favor of adding Nevada, creating a nine-team conference. The conference had 16 teams last season, but eight teams, including BYU, Utah and Wyoming, left to form the Mountain West Conference. Nevada, which will join the WAC for the 2000-01 season, has been lobbying the conference for the last year.

Thursday was a bad night to be a UC Irvine Anteater, or a basket in the Bren Center for that matter. By late evening, both were well-beaten. Nevada Las Vegas, often spectacular and never dull, ran Irvine silly, 117-76. But that figured. UNLV, top-ranked this season and maybe No. 1 for all time, has bulldozed better teams than Irvine by an average of 30.9 points. Given that, it's still startling to witness UNLV's dizzying array of dunks.
