Physics has high drop rate
- - - - Nbii Editor
According to Dr. Byron Coul-
ter, Physics 1250 had a drop rate of,
40 percent last year, which con-
trasted with the phvsics depart-
ment's average overall drop rate
of 20 percent.
"We (physics dept.) felt that
this was high so we decided to
conduct a survey to find out why,
stated Coulter. "Approximately
160 forms were sent out and we
had a 25 percent return rate. Many
spent a lot of time answering
questions and offered helpful
comments and ideas"
According to Coulter, one of
that the courses are hard. "Many
do not really understand simple
procedures in College Algebra
he noted, "especially word prob-
lems, which we have many of in
physics. This is a problem with
phvsics departments all over the
Students in some cases
couldn't understand their profes-
sor. "Thisbuildingisan acoustical
disaster Coulter pointed out,
"which affects communication. It
was not well-designed.
"We plan to install micro-
phones and speakers in the larger
classrooms. We are also in the
planning stage of installing acous-
tical tiles toeradicate sound rever-
"Just the fact that we're talk-
ing about it makes professors more
aware of the difficulties you
can't fix something until you know
it's broken. This semester already
the rate has decreased by halt.
According to The Jobs Rated
Almanac, physics is rated as the
third best profession in the U.S
behind actuary and hospital
administration, baed on six crite-
ria: salary, stress, work environ-
ment outlook, job security, and
physical demands.
ECU has one of the best phvs-
ics departments in the state in both
academics and research, accord-
ing to Dr. Carl G. Adler, chairman
of ECU'S physics dept and has
plans tor continued upgrading
and expansion in both areas. Since
his arrival 24 years ago the depart-
ment has grown from five faculty
and one staff to 15 faculty and
eight staff.
Beginning in the fall of '89 the
physics department will offer a
masters degree in medical phys-
ics jointly with the departments o!
radiation and oncology in the
School oi Medicine. ECU has also
developed a proposal for a request
to plan a doctoral degree in mod i
cal physics, which will also be
planned jointly with the School ot
Around 1970 the physics
department acquired a 5 million
electron-volt particle accelerator,
the second largest in the state, at a
cost of approximately $500,000. In
two upcoming experiments the
accelerator will be used to investi-
gate the structure of molecules by
bombarding them with protons,
and to determine the effect x-rav
energies have on molecular struc-
Other areas of research within
the department of physics (to be
discussed in subsequent stories)
include a study oi the electrical
behavior of the human stomach,
studies of the surface of the sun,
measurements of electrical prop-
erties of cellular membranes, and
applying NMR (Nuclear Magnetic
Resonance) microscopy to the
study of cells and related diseases.
Also, Dr. Adler is working with
formulas to illustrate his theoreti-
cal studies into Einstein's Theory
of General Relativity.
According to Adler, there are
several competing solutions to the
problem of motion in a uniform
gravitational field which are dif-
ferent, but each appears to be valid.
"I'm studying how there can be
different solutions, yet all appear
correct he said, "the answer is
not only can gravity curve space-
time, but it can strain (stretch) it
It is widely accepted that
there is no force' of gravity
continued Adler. "The earth does
not attract the moon, but warps
space-time around itself and the
moon is travelling in a straight
line through space-time
Yet, despite such exciting and
rewarding works, the physics
department has seen an increase
in the drop rate in some of its
undergraduate courses "I'm cer-
tain of one thing Adler con-
cluded, "you do not have to be
intelligent to be successful in
physics - you have to be deter-
mined and work hard
Writing program to aid students
Staff Writer
The Faculty Senate Ad I loc
Committee on Writing Across the
Curriculum has proposed a pilot
study to increase students' writ-
ing ability in departments other
than English. The study is the last
phase of research in a program
which, if implemented, will en-
able students to become more
proficient writers, readers, and
The Writing Across the Cur-
riculum program has been in the
planning stages tor the past three
years. A 1987 position paper pre-
sented to the Faculty Senate
showed that 40 percent of fresh-
men entering ECU between 1983
and 1986 were not able to follow
minimal writing competencies.
Based on placement essays, the
report stated that these students
could not avoid major errors in
grammar and punctuation, nor
limit a sentence toa workable size.
Furthermore, it revealed that the
same students could not stav on a
chosen topic tor the length of a
paper or follow a recognizable
pattern oi organization.
Asa result, the lack ot writing
skills is as apparent in the job
market as in the classroom. A
survey oi two local companies re-
vealed that 82 percent vi their
employees had not received train-
ing in writing since freshmen
composition. At the same time, 89
percent of those surveyed gave
some indication that writing is a
major part vi their job, with 23
percent of their total time desig-
nated to composing documents
and 17 percent to reading the docu-
ments of others.
"Because of the observations
of faculty members and the expe-
riences of graduates, we know
there isa need for the university to
do something about writing
skills said Dr. Patrick Bizzaro,
one of the founders of the Writing
Across the Curriculum program.
"Weareattempting to put together
a program to create a situation
optional for teachers. If they par-
ticipate in the classroom, it will be
both for the purposes of learning
and incentives for continuing in
the writing program as well as an
ongoing evaluation
The Writing Across the Cur-
riculum Ad Hoc Committee was
established through a resolution
of the Faculty Senate in April 1987.
The committee was charged with
collecting information on the
importance of writing, the use or
writing programs at schools at
ECU, and the interests of ECL
faculty and students concerning
writing skills. They were then
asked to follow up with recom-
mendations concerning how the
program will be implemented.
The research from an April
1988 report found that, out ot 1201
faculty questioned, 224 replied
that they were willing to address
the problem directly but were hesi-
tant because oi the time and effort
required. One hundred fort) oi
the 826 students surveyed replied
that they see a need to write, yet
are uncertain about how to rem-
edy their problems. The surve
indicated a dissatisfaction in the
level oi high school and college
writing as the'advanced through
the school system, yet at the same
time grow less concerned about
their writing deficiencies. Nearly
20 percent oi the students had not
been asked to write in most or all
oi their classes.
Bizzaro explained that in
addition to better equipping stu-
dents to deal with the literacy of a
subject, most theorists agree that
improving writing skills may im-
prove students' general learning
abilities. He went on to say that
this has also been evident in writ-
ing programs at other schools.
"One of the first studies was
done at George Mason University
in a Psychology class Bizarre
said. "(1 lie group tested) showed
improved learning and recall. We
found out that the program not
only helped teachers if they rear-
ranged their time to do things
differently, but students became
better learners as well as writers
Earlier this month, a teacher's
workshop in Writing Across the
Curriculum was held to help in-
terested faculty develop propos-
als for writing programs m their
classes. Those with the most fea-
sible programs will be awarded a
SI,000 grant through the Depart-
ment of Academic Affairs. The se-
lection of participants ill be made

'We e found � ul there

four teachers expressed an inter-
est and out of these, tour are ex-
pected to win the grant
After the pilot study is com-
pleted, the program w ill be ready
for full implementation, which
Bizzaro expects will be in 1 12 to
two years.

Helms said he was also con
corned because the rule oi previ-

debating the issue. With two
thuds consent, this rule automati-
cally ends debate on an issue.

The fire which gutted Clement
dorm on Feb. 25 caused more prob-
lems than a mere need for renova-
tion of Clement's sixth floor. It
caused ongoing frustration which
may have resulted in even more
hassles had it not been for the coop-
eration and support among resi-
dence advisors in Clement and other
west area campus dorms, the Salva-
tion Army and area businesses.
Students living in Clement were
not allowed to move back to their
rooms for two days after the fire.
Those living on the sixth floor could
not return until after Spring Break.
The RA staff in Clement coordinated
the initial emergency procedures
and received help from the staffs of
White, Fletcher and Greene Hall.
The four staffs assisted in counsel-
ing residents of Clement and an-
swering parents' questions, as well
as relocating the students. The Sal-
vation Army donated blankets and
local food stores donated food.
Without the residence advisors'
ability to work together and the
generosity of local businesses, this
situation would have been more
serious in that there would have
been added aggravation to an al-
ready stressful incident.
Another account of the White incident
To the editor:
The phrase "Sticks and stones
may break my bones, but words will
never hurt me" is as much a false-
hood today as it was when it was first
construed. The press and media cov-
erage evoked by the events which
occurred on April 3, 1988 (which
seems like yesterday to me) is neces-
sary to hopefully right a wrong that
the administration of this university
seems unwilling to admit, much less
Thee seems to be so many ques-
tions concerning that day. Was
Teddy Matthew White a victim of "a
gross miscarriage oi justice as was
previously stated? More impor-
tantly, what exactly happened on the
evening of April 3, 1988? As an eye-
witness to the events in question, I
would like to shed some light on
these inquisitions.
I was there that night when
Teddy was working on his car, as was
Mark Sylve and Trina Hedgcpeth.
We were all witnesses to the insults
thai provocatcd the violence that fol-
lowed. "Nigger, bitches, monkey,
and stupid" are some of the epitaphs
which were hurled at us from a win-
dow of Garrett dormitory. The racial
slurs came from several white "gen-
tlemen" who obviously had nothing
better to do than become inebriated
on the campus of ECU (which is
against school policy) and shout such
insulting remarks in their drunkard
stupor. I am sure that these com-
ments were the cause of the confron-
tation which followed. If these inso-
lent, degrading statements were
never made, Teddy White would still
be a student here at ECU.
True, I know that ! am not a
nigger, I am not a bitch, 1 am not a
monkey, and 1 am not stupid. But,
one can not expect me, or any other
Black person, to be able to shrug-off
such insults with the wink of an eye
These insults cut much deeper than
that and I think the perpetrators of
these insults yrc fully a ware of their
impact. 1 am m sure why the white
gentlemen in Garrett dormitory were
not disciplined for their actions, even
after I signed a statement confirming
their offenses. Or did I touch on the
reason in the previous sentence? I am
not fully knowledgeable of the Uni-
versity's judicial process, but I would
like to pursue these matters further to
ensure that justice is carried out.
In closing, 1 will make a state-
ment in defense of Mr. Schatzman. If
it wasn't for him, who would care
about the fate of Teddy White and
others who might find themselves in
similar situations? Who would open
the eyes of students and the admini-
stration to let them realize that they
walk in the midst of racism every-
day? Who would tell the Black stu-
dents of this campus that they should
not accept racism as a way of life?
Furthermore, the administration of
this University, with its "We went
straight by the book" attitude, is
confirming that they are insensitive
to verbal harassment and the needs
of Black students. I am not attempt-
ing to excuse the actions of Teddy
White, but I ask that you please at-
tempt to understand why those inci-
dences did arise. I also would like to
see that the precipita torsof the events
on April 3,1988 be punished for their
actions (more than a slap on the wrist
and a mild scolding). African-Ameri-
can students on this campus will
remain to be called niggers, bitches,
and monkies as long as people are
allowed to do so without repercus-
sions. Please do something about
these kind of offenders before a situ-
ation really gets out of hand. It may
be next week, next year, or five years
from now, but if things remain status
quo, it is inevitable.

doesn't want to sec. Unfortunately,
ignoring the problem doesn't make it
go away. Anyone who felt this sculp-
ture to be offensive and repugnant
either didn't look at it closely enough
to see its anti-racist symbolism, or is
afraid to admit to the fact that the art
work depicted reality, however
harsh that may have been.
The artists, Victoria Higgins and
Marc Sylvester, have said that the
police who dismantled the sculpture
actually smashed the face of the Black
figure. Of course, this may have been
accidental, but many feel it was not.
Without wanting to, the dismantlers
confirmed and emphasized what the
artists were trying to say. Lets all
wake up and face reality instead of
living in an imaginary land where
nothing unpleasant ever happens.

Live in reality
To the editor:
There are two issues I want to
address in this letter, both of which
have arisen from the removal of the
artwork from the mall two weeks
First is racism. A blind man
could tell you that there is significant
racismatECU, in the South,and most
places in the world; and anyone with
a heart can tell you, it's bad. It also
seems quite obvious that addressing
racism directly, symbolically or any
other way, is the first step to eliminat-
ing it.
The second issue 1 wish to ad-
dress is censorship. When public
safety removed the artwork because
it addressed racism in a dramatic
way, it wasa direct and conscious ex
ercise of censorship.
Moreover, ECU is public prop-
erty, the artists received the proper
permission and did not violate any
local, state, or national obscenity
laws. Clearly, the actions taken by
Public Safety and excused by Chan-
cellor Eakin were not only offensive
to the values of expression this coun-
try was founded upon, but in fact
against the law.
Dr. Eakin spent the entire day in
press conferences smoothing over
the incident. He said universities like
ECU need to protect the sensitivities
of the community and the art was
"judged" insensitive. In all fairness,
this is a very sensitive topic, but so
was integration and civil rights just
ten year ago. Dr. Eakin's "sensitiv-
ity" is cheap and whimsical.
These charges I am making
against Chancellor Eakin and Public
Safety are 1) running away from ra
cism, and 2) the illegal exercise ot
censorship. I (and so should the com
munity) consider these serious
charges. I believe Dr. Eakin should
publicly apologize for his actions and
the actions taken on behalf of his ad-
Steve Sommers
Quick reaction
To the editor:
I had followed, in a vague sort of
way, the Teddy White case in The
East Carolinian. I was annoyed at
Schatzman's apparent exaggeration
of the situation and his exacerbation
of the racial tensions already stirred
up by the case. It seemed that it was
alwaysa reflexive, knee-jerk reaction
to assume that every negative inci-
dent between white and black per-
sons had to have a racial overtone
and that the black person was always
being stepped upon.
More recently, a friend of mine
and I talked a while one afternoon
about something that had upset her
greatly. She had seen on the campus
Mall a scene including a black man-
nequin hanging from a tree and two
white mannequins sitting nearby in
eyewitness says
lounge chairs. 1 was astounded. My
first reaction was to find out if it was
still in place; I was going to tear it
down. She told me the display was
surrounded by barbed wiroI replied
that that didn't matter. She then told
me it had already been dismantled
after outcries from offended stu-
dents, so I relaxed, though I was still
irritated by the whole thing.
After she left however, I started
to think. What if the display had been
meant as a stinging satire of local
racial feeling? What if someone were
trying to shock us into seeing an evil
most of us deny exists? What if the
persons who had assembled the dis-
play were black? (I knew nothing at
the time of who was responsible.)
This last thought struck me; I had
automatically assumed that since
people found the scene racially offen-
sive, whoever created it must have
intended to disparage black people.
If the arranger had been black, how-
ever, the scene's intent and therefore
its meaning would have been com-
pletely the opposite.
I realized then that my reaction
to hearing of the scene was that same
knee-jerk reaction with which I had
associated Schatzman and his ilk. In
that same moment I also saw that
racism itself, in all its forms, is essen-
tially that reflexive, instinctive, knee-
jerk reaction devoid of the rational
thought we in the western world
hold in such high esteem. How can it
be that we college students, ostensi-
bly the bright hopes for our country's
future and the minds that may some-
day solve our greatest challenges, be
such pawns to reflex, such mari-
onettes to initial appearances? How
can we have become, in a country
which prizes freedom, such abject
slaves to fear and instinct? I, who had
imagined myself largely free from
prejudice, have been humbled by the
revelation. The figures in the scene
that caused so much furor that morn-
ing meant nothing by themselves;
they were simply wire and plaster.
The intent behind their construction
was sole proprietor of their meaning,
and yet most, including myself, con-
demned the scene before that intent
was known, or ignored the intent
Make no mistake. If the figures
had been erected solely to disparage
the black man or to advance the su-
premacist viewpoint the figures
should rightly have been removed.
If, however, the scene was, as the
artists who constructed it contend,
and attempt to shock us into facing
the racial tensions that exist on cam-
pus, then the scene should definitely
have been allowed to remain. A dis-
tasteful scene, true, but distasteful in
the same way that many strong
medicines are distasteful; perhaps in
this sense the scene could effect the
beginnings of some kind of cure for
the peculiar ill it targets.
words do hurt
Ultimately, I do not begrudge
Schatzman his view of the world He
speaks of a war, and I think I begin to
see his viewpoint. America has al-
fi ways been a factional nation, com-
pringas it does so many different
groups. Although the United States
has matured beyond the point where
a black man can be lynched without
fear of reprisals, we arc not nearly
matureenough. Wecan hold forums,
pass laws, march in the streets, and
write thousands of letters to thou-
sands of editors; yet none ot these
things will help us conquer racism
and usher in true freedom until cver
one of us � every one � can reach in-
side ourselves to find those chains of
preconceptions, those shackles ot
reflexive thought, those bonds of ir-
rationality, and break them utterly
Only then can we have constructed a
nation that will value solely what a
person is and does rather than judge
him by color alone.

To the editor:
My name is Susan Cooperman
and I am the chairperson of the SGA
Appropriations committee. This let-
ter is addressing all student groups
who may receive funding from the
ECU Student Government Associa-
tion. The time has come to begin the
Annual Appropriation process for
the 1989-1990 fiscal year. I have sent
letters to all groups who have been
funded in the past five years, in the
hopes that these groups would begin
preparing their budget requests.
Due to the yearly change of officers
in student organizations, many of
these leaders aren't completely
aware of the procedures involved in
the appropriation process. For that
reason, I urge all organization lead-
ers, if they have not already turned in
their budget requests, to contact me
in order to find out the needed infor-
mation. The deadline for turning in
budget requests for Spring consid-
eration is set for Monday, March
20th at 5 pm. All such requests may
be turned in at the SGA office (MSC
222). If you have ANY questions, feel
free to call me.
Thank you for your cooperation

McGuire Nuclear Station releases

RALEIGH (AP) � A problem
at McGuire Nuclear Station last
week has little bearing on the

that released radioactive steam
as happen d Iuesday at the Duke

But records Westinghouse has
tiled with Deane's oftice show a
broad range of citations and envi-

its uranium mining operations in
Wyoming to its nudear fuels plant
in South Carolina.

America's most influential

past rife with cosmic irony.
5i cteen y� ars after his tather
walked out, Snyder quit a lucra-

headhunter and lett his won wife
and two sons to subsist on welfare
and food stamps. Twenty years

So too are the cars he occa-

Mitch Snyder never did learn

For the past 15 years, he has
dedicated himself to "liberating
people who are destitute To that
end, no one has garnered more

Farewell dance concert at
McGinnis for choreographer
The East Carolina Playhouse will present a dance theater production Wednesday through
Saturday in McGinnis Theater. One of the pieces is choreographed by Mavis Ray, who is retiring
at the end of the semester.
East Carolina Playhouse Press Release
The East Carolina Playhouse
will present an evening of dance
featuring the East Carolina Dance
Theater Wednesday, at 8:15 p.m.
and will have additional perform-
ances on Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday, in McGinnis Theatre.
This year's concert will fea-
ture five works choreographed by
the Dance Faculty of the Depart-
ment of Theatre Arts. Along with
the works of Patricia Pertalion and
Patricia Weeks, the final choreo-
graphed dance piece by Broad-
way veteran Mavis Ray, who will
be retiring at the end of this school
term, will be featured. And area
residents will have an opportu-
nity to see the work of new faculty
member, Alan Arnett.
Choreographer Mavis Ray-
will explore the world of dance
from 1840 to the present in her
dance piece entitled, "The De-
cline Her work, which she says
is aimed to amuse as well as enter-
tain, will include a little bit of it all
from the waltz and polka to the
twist and rock.
Since most area residents
associate Ms. Ray and her work
with the musicals of the East Caro-
lina Summer Theater, it seems only
fitting that this farewell gala
should have such a musical flair.
Choreographer Patricia
Weeks has created a piece that
combines a Far Eastern feeling
with the fut tic sounds of Tan-
gerine Dream. The dancers in
"Radiant Energies" find the source
of their energy from within and
share its joy and strength with
each other.

people sleep in the street.
"The issue is how to reduce
that distance. Once humanity is

The nation's apathv toward

fear, Snyder thinks. "They're a

wound up in federal prison on an

Lose in second round of CAA's
ECUfalls to Patriots
Atti ' an opening round win
against American, the Pirates were
flying high and looking tor an-
other upset But as is the case with
most "Cinderella" teams, there
fairy tale ended a little early. ECU
held a comfortable lead tor most
ot the second halt, but the Patriots
pro ed to be too much late in the
game and came back to win t5-rV
As has been the story all .sea-
son, senior blue Edwards did most
ot the damage tor the Pirates.
However, it was not one ot his
better games. Edwards shot 11-32
�the floor but did manage to
score 34 points. The total ties the
tournament record tor most points
in a game.
East Carolina would control
the opening tip, but il would be all
George Mason after that. The Pa-
ts would rattle off the first five
points to jump out to a quick 5-0
Edwards would score on a
dri ing la) up to put ECL' on the
board after a 2:44 second dry spell,
rhe bucket cut the lead to 5-2. The
Patriots would continue to pull
away and stretched their lead to
mx. Following a Robert Dykes
ramp shot, Mason was up 10-4.
i hen the Pirates would mount
a runoftheirown. Edwards would
hit two jumpers and make a pass
in the lane to ay Scherer to help
: v U to a 10-4 run. The spurt tied
the score at 12 with 12:08 left in the
first hall
teams traded baskets until
Stanle) Love hit a jumper to give
the Pirates their first lead. With
17 left in the halt. ECL' would
have its nrt lead 16-15. They
�-uld continue to add to as they
ran off a 10-4 run to put them up
22 -1�.
The two teams would volley
back and forth the rest of the halt
with neither team going up by
more than four points. And with
1:03 left in the first halt. Edwards
would hit a turnaround jump shot
to knot the game at 26. The score
would remain tied as the teams
entered the locker room tor inter-
S kept the Pirates in
the game by scoring lb points in
the firs! halt. Ik also grabbed six
rebounds in the halt to lead all
players in that area. The Pirates
limited tl Patriots to onh 40.7
e nt shooting from the field in
the halt.
t Carolina began the sec-
ond all rith possession of the
ball and would take lull advan-
tage ot it rhe Pirates would go on
9-2 run in the first 5:45 of the
second halt. The run allowed ECU
to open a seven point lead, 37-30.
George Mason would fight
back and cut the lead to two. But
behind the strong play of Edwards,
ECU would open its lead back to
eight After two oi Edwards' free
throws, the Pirates held a 49-41
lead with 5:22 remaining in the
From that point on it was all
George Mason. The Pa tnots would
get clutch shooting from freshman
Mike Hargett and would hit their
tree throws down the stretch to
push them into the tournament
With 2.02 left in the contest.
Hargett would can a long three-
point jumpshot to tie the game at
54. Mason would get 11-12 free
throws to salt away the win.
Over the last five minutes
fatigue and tools caught up with
the Pirates. After a hard fought
win against American and a physi-
cal game in the first half, the Pi-
rates tired and the Patriots took
full advantage. Mason outscored
ECU 24 over the last five min-
utesand the Pirates were also hurt
by Reed Lose and Stanley Line
fouling out.
1 lead Coach 1 ike Steele made
no excuses following the loss and
ga e George Mason a lot of credit.
i hey put a lot oi defensive pres
sure on our guards and forced us
to turn the ball over. You have to
giv e them credit, they hit their free
throws down the stretch Steele
Edwards led ECU in scoring
and rebounding. He finished the
game with 34 points and eight
rebounds. The 34 points was the
most by n ECL' player in a post-
season game. Edwardsdid not get
the support from his teammates
as he did in the game against
American. No other ECU player
reached double figures Freshmen
Jay Scherer added seven points
and three rebounds, while the hero
of the American game, Stanley
Love, chipped in with six points.
(he Patriots were paced by
four players in double figures.
Center Robert Dykes led the wa
with 16 points and nine rebounds.
Freshman Mike Hargett added 14
points and lasl years player of the
year Kenny Zanders also chipped
in with 14. Stew Smith rounded
out the double figure scorers bv
scoring 12 points.
Even with the losi ECL
moved to 13-14 for the Reason.
This marked the first winning
season tor the Pirates since 1982
83. It was also Mike Steele's first
winning mark as the Pirate men-
tor. Steele improved on his, first
season mark of 8-20.
Edwards named
CAA player of year
At. Sports Editor
Friday night, March 3, the
Colonial Athletic Association
Tournament got underway at
Hampton, VA. But it wasn't with
a game or practice. It was with the
CAA tip-off banquet.
It was an evening of fun and
entertainment. It was also a time
for the stars to shine, as the league
presented its post-season honors
and awards. And what a night it
would be for two of East Caro-
lina's seniors.
Chris Berman from ESPN
started the evening rolling follow-
ing dinner. The "master of the
nickname" tried his hand at nam-
ing a few of ECU'S players. He
orcd three times as player of the
week, led the league in sconng,
waseighthm rebounding, third in
field goal percentage, fourth in
steals and seventh in assists. He
averaged 263 points and 68 re-
bounds per game and ranked in
the top 10 in eight individual sta-
tistical categories.
As he received the award,
Edwards shared his feelings with
those at the banquet. He thanked
his teammates and Pirate fans, but
saved the best for last. Edwards
dedicated the award to "his best
friend and a man I love like a
brother" head coach Mike Steele
Edwards also led the ballot-
ing for first team CAA. He was
joined there by seniors Kenny
Sanders of George Mason, and
Mike Winochi of Richmond, jun

knd as the suspense grew, the

Blue Edwards.
Edwards, who had been hon-

rounded out the top five.
Also honored at the banquet
was Pirate senior point guard Jeff
Kelly. Kelly was first named to the
