Basketball, the way Kevin Floyd plays it, has the pace of a freight train ready to derail. If he had his way, the game would be a full-throttle, 94-foot demolition derby ending with a slam dunk. Floyd has more twists and turns than the Tasmanian Devil. And he draws a horde of player-control violations. But Floyd is one of the most electrifying college players on the West Coast, and without him, UC Irvine would be missing a lot of creativity and excitement. Floyd can get carried away at times.

An ailing UC Irvine basketball team limped into Thursday night's game against University of the Pacific hoping to find the panacea for all Big West Conference teams: Take a victory from the Tigers and go to bed. The Anteaters, who were playing without Jeff Herdman, the nation's leading three-point shooter who has the intestinal flu, and also had their top rebounder and No. 2 scorer, center Mike Doktorczyk, limping with a severe thigh bruise, got the victory they sought.

Kevin Floyd finally stopped his momentum and spun around to see if it had been worth the effort. He was standing 12 rows up in Iowa's Carver-Hawkeye Arena when he saw that it had. Teammate Ed Johansen grabbed the loose ball Floyd had so daringly and acrobatically saved before hurtling up the aisle between sections of startled fans. The play was more than just spectacular, it was pivotal.

Kevin Floyd figured Thursday's practice was going to be "pretty harsh," but he never dreamed he would end up suspended for two games before it was over. Bill Mulligan, UC Irvine basketball coach, had been stressing defense for a month in practice before Wednesday night's exhibition against club Malbas.
