Lloyd Mumford, a former backup guard at Villanova, says he is transferring to UC Irvine to join the basketball program. Mumford, a 6-foot point guard, played in 24 games for Villanova last season, averaging 3.2 points and totaling 33 assists. He will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out next season as required by NCAA regulations. Mumford was a redshirt freshman last season, after missing the previous season with a broken leg.

The year that was and the first Golden Anteater Awards: * Best Performance by a Male Athlete in a Leading Role--Point guard Lloyd Mumford, who seldom followed the script, wins for his brilliant ad libs during a Jan. 27 overtime loss at Long Beach State. Mumford's Harlem Globetrotter routine began after halftime, when he made eight of 13 mostly spectacular shots, scored 25 points and had six assists and three steals in the final 25 minutes.

The bus ride from Logan Airport to the hotel was enough for Lloyd Mumford and Coach Rod Baker to know they were home. "Coming from Logan, you go past the toll booth and through the Callahan Tunnel. Once you go through the Callahan Tunnel, there's a sense of being home," said Mumford, a transfer from Villanova who will make his UC Irvine debut tonight against Boston University, perhaps 20 minutes from his family home in the Boston neighborhood of Mattapan.

It was the most painful of reality checks for UC Irvine point guard Lloyd Mumford. He established himself as a big-time tournament player in Vegas, with his twisting drives, clutch shots, crisp, pin-point passes and sweet ballhandling. But now Mumford's college career and Irvine's surprising run through the Big West Tournament were over.

Rollie Massimino's arrival in the Big West Conference will mean a reunion with former Villanova guard Lloyd Mumford, now at UC Irvine. The two didn't part amicably. "I can't believe it," said Mumford, who transferred from Villanova after Massimino dropped him from the team last summer. "I'd like to beat him probably as bad as anybody could be beaten, on a professional level."

He may look odd as he skitters around the court with goggles to protect the stitches in his left eyelid, but give Lloyd Mumford this: Tear his eyelid, he plays; twist his ankle, he plays. Put the game on the line with the clock running out, and Mumford usually does something .

It's not always easy to tell what Lloyd Mumford is going to do with the basketball next--as any teammate who has been hit in the face with a pass can tell you. UC Irvine's point guard can slip through the lane, past one man, around another, until he's almost to the rim. And though his teammates think Mumford is going to shoot, he might zing the ball their way, without so much as a glance.

Those weren't the Runnin' Rebels of old, but they did succeed in running up the score on UC Irvine in No. 22 Nevada Las Vegas' 115-97 victory Saturday night. The crowd of 14,727 in the 20,000-plus capacity Thomas & Mack Center for Rollie Massimino's first home game as UNLV coach was sparse and subdued compared to the years when Jerry Tarkanian was coach. But what they saw was more vintage UNLV than Villanova. "That's like two games worth of points at Villanova," Irvine Coach Rod Baker said.
