Complain, if you will, that UC Irvine's shooting guard can hardly hit a shot, and that its point guard hardly has any assists. The complaints are being shushed for the moment at Irvine, where despite such oddities, the Anteaters won their Freedom Bowl Classic by defeating Bradley, 94-85, Saturday in the Bren Center. With that, the Anteaters have a two-game winning streak for the first time since February, 1989. And with a 3-2 record, they are above .500 for the first time since March, 1988.

There were 22 seconds left when Khari Johnson and Elgin Rogers and some of the other players on UC Irvine's bench started lifting their jerseys to show the T-shirts underneath. "I think we can," the shirts read. "UCI basketball." They could, and what was more, they did. The Anteaters, who entered the Big West Conference tournament with a 6-21 record, pulled off an 88-67 upset of top-seeded UC Santa Barbara in the first round Friday night in front of 4,134 at Long Beach Arena.

Gerald McDonald will go through the usual routines today, before what could be the last college basketball game of his career. There will be a shoot-around, the team meal--and McDonald's pregame dose of Pepto-Bismol. Even though he is the only player who has been in UC Irvine's starting lineup for every game this season and has started 38 consecutive games over two seasons, that is one routine that hasn't changed. "I don't know why, but after games my stomach hurts," McDonald said.

Rick Swanwick, a reserve center who has been considering leaving the UC Irvine basketball program since last season, has told Irvine Coach Rod Baker that he is transferring to Rancho Santiago College. "It didn't turn out as I had hoped at Irvine, so I decided to move on," said Swanwick, a 6-foot-10 redshirt freshman who was bothered by an injury to his Achilles' tendon last season. He appeared in 13 games, averaging fewer than three minutes a game.

Pacific spoiled UC Irvine's hopes of clinching a Big West Conference tournament berth Saturday night, defeating the Anteaters, 79-66, at the Irvine Bren Center. Dell Demps scored 23 points and Tony Amundsen added 17 as the Tigers (11-14, 7-9) beat the Anteaters for the sixth consecutive time.

UC Irvine played an exhibition basketball game Tuesday against Trencin, a Czechoslovakian club team that was winless in six West Coast games. Since Trencin had been beaten by an average of 45 points, Irvine set a goal to do something no other team had done: Hold Trencin to less than 50 points. The defensive-minded Anteaters did it in an 81-49 victory in front of 558 at the Bren Center, but only after Trencin's Ivan Mikusovic missed the front end of a one-and-one with 44 seconds remaining.

UC Irvine began its attempt to recover quickly from a 5-23 basketball season by signing three community college players Wednesday, including the player likely to become the Anteaters' starting point guard. Gerald McDonald, who averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and nine assists for Compton College last season, signed Wednesday, along with Cornelius Banks, a 6-5 forward from Santa Monica College, and David Hollaway, a 6-2 guard from West Los Angeles College.
