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.

With 1 minute 31 seconds left in the first half of Friday night's game, Tim Manning of Trabuco Hills High School stole the basketball and flipped a pass to Rick Swanwick. What followed was a monster dunk by Swanwick that may not have registered on the Richter scale, but certainly did in the minds of Swanwick's teammates. The Mustangs proceeded to outscore Laguna Hills, 35-18, the rest of the game for a 66-48 victory. "The guys like it when I dunk," said Swanwick, The Times' athlete of the week.

There was no place for Rick Swanwick to hide. There were two seconds showing on the Oakland Coliseum Arena scoreboard and Trabuco Hills High School trailed Central Valley by two points in its State Division III boys' championship basketball game. Swanwick had carried the Mustangs on his 6-foot-10 frame during a second-half rally. He had scored all 24 of Trabuco Hills' points in the half and now he needed to make two free throws to send the game into overtime.
