Nevada's Trevor Insley would prefer to forget that the game in which he broke the NCAA Division I-A career-receiving record was a losing cause for his team. Insley, a senior from San Clemente, caught 14 passes for 253 yards Saturday in the Wolf Pack's 42-33 Big West Conference loss to Idaho. Twelve of his receptions, including two touchdown grabs, came in the second half after he suffered a mild concussion returning a punt in the first quarter.

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.

Jeff Wale scored two goals to lead Nevada Las Vegas to a 2-1 victory over UC Irvine Sunday in a Big West Conference soccer match at Irvine. The Rebels (7-6 overall, 2-2 in conference) took the lead 4 minutes 32 seconds into the match when Wale, a junior midfielder from Cerritos, beat Irvine goalkeeper Mike Gartlan on a penalty kick. Midway through the first half, John Gunderson tied the score for Irvine (3-7-1, 0-3), with his fifth goal of the season.

The Cal State Northridge baseball team started fast but lacked a finishing kick Sunday in a 10-4 nonconference loss to host Nevada Las Vegas. The Matadors jumped to a three-run lead after 1 1/2 innings but UNLV scored seven runs in its next three at-bats to clinch the victory at Barnson Field. UNLV (2-1) added a run in the sixth and two in the eighth while Northridge (4-2) didn't score again until the eighth.

Reliever Jason Rogers retired the side in order for Nevada in the ninth.

Cal State Fullerton's 14-game winning streak and sophomore Dante Powell's 18-game hitting streak ended Sunday. Nevada beat the Titans, 11-1, in a Big West Conference game at Reno in which Powell was hitless in four at-bats. It was the first conference loss for first-place Fullerton (22-8, 11-1), which is ranked fourth in the nation by Collegiate Baseball. The Titans had taken the opening game in the series, 10-1, Friday, then won Saturday, 16-4.

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.

Maurice Clarett ran, jumped, lifted weights and caught footballs for pro scouts Monday in Columbus, Ohio. By and large, they came away impressed. "Obviously, he's going to be a bell cow for somebody -- he's got that type of ability," said former NFL fullback Tom Rathman, who represented the Detroit Lions. "It's just a matter of him developing as a football player."
