It was the only birthday Sabrina Roberson hasn't celebrated. Roberson, then a freshman guard for UC Irvine, turned 19 that day in 1995, but was too busy to blow out candles. The Anteaters, Big West tournament champions that year, were playing Stanford in the first round of the NCAA women's basketball tournament. "I remember thinking, 'Maybe we can win this,' " said Roberson, now a senior. "It was exciting. We came out ready to fight and the first six minutes went back and forth."
