In a strange twist, the Anteaters beat the Highlanders in a nonconference game and clinched a tie for their first Big West Conference title. Irvine got help from Boise State, which came from 12 points down to upend visiting Utah State, 78-77, in overtime. That gives the Anteaters (22-3, 13-1 in the Big West) a two-game lead over the Aggies (22-5, 11-3) with two games left. Irvine can win the title outright with a victory Thursday afternoon against Cal State Fullerton.
