The UC Irvine basketball team won their first game against UC Riverside on December 1, 1965 after two “ex-officio” players – Chancellor Dan Aldrich and UC Riverside’s Chancellor Ivan Hinderaker – competed for the ball during the opening tip off.  The first UCI Athletic Director Wayne Crawford addresses the crowd before the game, Head Coach Dan Rogers prepares the team, the cheerleaders are cheering, and there isn’t an empty seat in the gym!
