USC forward Eric Wise scored 14 points on only 10 shots in a 71-69 victory over Stanford on Thursday night in a Pac-12 Conference opener. Wise also made two of his three three-point attempts, a sign that a player understands where and when to take the long shot. Cardinal Coach Johnny Dawkins pointed to Wise as not only a good Pac-12 player but someone who should get national attention. "He is a great player," Dawkins said. "He is strong. He is probably one of the most efficient players in the conference, maybe the country.

What does a business do if the vintage aircraft part a customer needs hasn't been made in decades? For a solution, Airflow Systems of Capistrano Beach turned to RapidTech at UC Irvine. Through the use of RapidTech's cutting-edge 3-D manufacturing technology, the aircraft parts manufacturer got what it needed in exchange for the cost of the materials required to do the work. "I believe that small entrepreneurial businesses like ours will be the backbone of manufacturing innovation in the U.S.," said Bill Genevro, president of Airflow Systems.

USC played from behind from the start Thursday night. Michael Wilder, a 6-foot-2 forward for UC Irvine whose old-school high-in-the-air hair accounts for a least two inches, made an immediate impact with his three-point basket and from there the Anteaters went on to a 61-54 victory over the Trojans at the Galen Center. After Wilder gave the Anteaters a 3-0 advantage, the Trojans (4-7) led only once, 4-3, on an Eric Wise layup. The Anteaters (6-7) had taken UCLA into overtime last month before losing by a point.

Re “ UC Merced's new course ,” Nov. 11 While I appreciated the report from UC Merced, I was confused at the inclusion of what seemed the too-easy detail of its lack, of all things, of a football team. By my count, exactly one of the students profiled expressed a presumed desire for one at a university that she knew, when she was accepted, did not have one. I teach at UC Irvine, which has had no football team, happily, for all of its nearly 50 years. As a teaching assistant and then lecturer for two decades, I've never once heard a student or faculty member complain.

"Lucky" and "fortunate" were terms UCLA Coach Ben Howland used to describe his team's 80-79 overtime win against UC Irvine on Tuesday at Pauley Pavilion. "This is kind of a trap game," Howland said after. "We're coming off a sold-out arena, first game, all the hype, all the excitement. I was really worried about this not understanding who we're playing. " Forward David Wear admitted after the Bruins, who started out last season with consecutive defeats to mid-major teams (Loyola Marymount and Middle Tennessee State)

A UCLA freshman rescued the Bruins on Tuesday, helping his team escape with an overtime win. Off in fantasy-land, Bruins fans would like to imagine that Shabazz Muhammad saved the day. But, no. It was Jordan Adams, who poured in 26 points -- and hit all 16 of his free throws -- in UCLA's 80-70 overtime win against UC Irvine at Pauley Pavilion . "Jordan Adams was key for us down the stretch, and the entire game for us, offensively," Bruins...

Scores of "Free Shabazz" shirts dotted Pauley Pavilion's audience Tuesday night, and three of the light blue tops stretched across torsos of UCLA players during warmups. In an apparent sign of solidarity, Kyle Anderson, Tony Parker and Jordan Adams stood with their fellow freshman, the fourth member of their touted recruiting class, by wearing apparel with his face in silhouette, the words "Free Shabazz" beneath. But on the bench, in a black V-neck tee and gray warm-up pants, Shabazz Muhammad was forced to celebrate his 19th birthday by sitting out his second game as a Bruin.
