Irvine Valley's men's basketball team has faced a tough, early-season schedule.

Irvine Valley trailed, 24-15, at the half to Miramar Wednesday night.

And for the game, Irvine Valley shot just 21.3 percent (13 of 61) from the field, 16.1 percent (5 of 31) from three-point range and 45.5 percent (5 of 11) from the line.
