C. Pass the
outta here if
If you're reading this, you're probably either a student, a
faculty member or a staff member at ECU. With this common
bond, The East Carolinian would like to hit a nerve with a lot
of you. LAZINESS! It's everywhere, and no one seems to be
able to stop it!
Granted, we acknowledge the hard-working individuals dili-
gently studying in the library (or trying to - what is that ruckus,
anyway?) each day, those who appear 15 minutes before class
to get in a little review time, and those who pull all-nighters
even though they've consistently kept up with all reading as-
signments, homework, etc. All two of you.
Today, however, we would like to address the 50 bazillion
others who have nightmares about ever carrying out such hor-
rible actions. Now, we're all procrastinators at some point. And
not all of us are that bad, but we're sick of the ones who are!
Take a challenging class, for example. There are so many
people at this school who would love that diploma, but want it
for free. As in, no tests - oral quizzes if necessary, please - a
one-and-a-half page final paper, and free snacks between lecture
issues. Frequently, we who actually are here to learn, must lis-
ten to "God, Dr. So-and-So is su-u-uch a tyrant! I mean, he actu-
ally made us WRITE A PAPER Or, "I know, Dr. Such-and-Such
is just irrational. I had to study a whole two hours for her test,
and I still flunked
Come on, people! And you know who you are! Hang your
heads, get a clue and grow up! Some of us want a challenge,
and find those classes that make us study like heck extremely
fascinating. Of course, there are exceptions. (Refer to previous
article on 'D' and 'F' classes.) We certainly don't want to have
to pass a test that Chancellor Eakin might even have problems
with, but the occasional "Sheesh. I must study all night or I will
certainly fail like no one has ever failed before" class can be
Think about it. An excuse to order pizza at crazy hours. A
reason to call home and moan about your tireless efforts and
aching brains (This gets a great response, too. Parents have
been known to purchase new cars for sons and daughters who
call home and sound like they're studying endlessly. Plus the
call gives you a great reason to procrastinate.).
Then there are the people who start a hate organization
against any professor who has the nerve to bring some life into
a class. Like forcing class participation. Whoa. Tough one. Or
trying a new teaching tactic, foolishly under the impression
that "Change is good, change is good
All we're saying is that perhaps some people could stop
complaining and start listening. The hardest classes often turn
out to be the ones you quote from during late-night conversa-
tions that require some exhibition of intellect.
And calm down, all of you who want to write letters to TEC's
staff labeling us goody-two-shoes, etc. We're far from it, but we
are an ambitious group. In fact, our ambition allowed us this
consensus opinion. Those on the staff who disagreed can be
found somewhere in one of ECU's beautiful construction
We like ordering pizza at ridiculous hours just like the next
guy. We actually excel at the process. But we don't insist that
the pizza be delivered during class, between lecture subjects.

Ladies deserve fans, too
Well here we are again fellow
Pirate fans. Smack dab in the
middle of another season of colle-
giate hoops. On any given weekend
we have the privilege of heading
over to Williams Arena and catch-
ing a glimpse of Skip Schaefbaur
sinking a three or Chuckie Robinson
slamming one home. No one can
argue the fact that the men are
amazing to watch, but I have a sur-
prise for all of you. We also have a
women's team that plays in Minges
We, as a university, seem con-
tent to rally behind the men's team
in vast numbers while at the same
time hardly acknowledging that the
Lady Pirates exist. A perfect ex-
ample of this is the Perfect Pirate
Fan contest that is going on now.
This contest attempts to fill the
seats of the newly renovated Will-
iams Arena by promising students a
chance to win a spring break trip
for two to Panama City. The only
eligibility requirement is that you
attend select games at the new
arena, and present your I.D. at a spe-
cial table. Ahh! This is where it
gets interesting. In order to be a
"Perfect" Pirate Fan, you have to at-
tend twelve of the men's games but
are only asked to attend two of the
women's contests. The rules of this
contest insinuate that watching the
perfect if you
support the men's
men battle it out on the hardwood
is much more crucial to obtaining
that "perfect" fan status than sup-
porting the ladies in their athletic
endeavors. Who's to blame for this
flagrantly biased promotion? At first
, visions of a polyester clad adminis-
trative chauvinist may come to mind.
However if one looks further, it is
we the fans that are to blame for
the inequality of the contest.
Over and over again we pile
into the coliseum and show our sup-
port for the men. On the other
hand, a relatively minuscule number
of fans come out and cheer on the
ladies. Excluding the double header
on January 6, the women's audience
has averaged only 296 fans. The
men however have commanded au-
diences in excess of 6000 through-
out the season thus far. These num-
bers clearly show that we as a stu-
dent body refuse to recognize the
Lady Pirates as the accomplished
athletes that they are.
No, you probably won't see a
female Buccaneer hanging from the
rim anytime soon. But that is be-
cause women's basketball is, in some
respects, a different game alto-
gether. Sure they don't have the
dunk, but they create in its absence
a more pure version of the game that
is rooted in the fundamentals of the
Why, you may ask, did I bother
to bring all this up? Because we as
a student body need to give these
ladies the recognition they so de-
serve. The women who make up our
Lady Pirates team have made the
same sacrifices as their male coun-
terparts. They practice long hours
and travel many miles in order to play
the game. These women have given
themselves to the game and to their
school. For that we owe them some
thanks. If we really want to be "per-
fect" Pirate fans, we should give the
women the same support as we do
the men. Our ladies should be able
to take to their home floor in front
of an ocean of screaming Purple and
Gold fans. Or have we the students
reserved that privilege only for the
guys? My hat is off to you ladies.

Many people seem to think term

Some even want us to believe these

The problem with our govern-
ment is the power money exerts in
our political system. Sure, term lim-
its may not be bad. They may even
make things marginally better - but
they are not the panacea their propo-

Term limits do not attack the
fundamental problem in Washington

Money and the influence of spe-

money to get my message out to the

Politicians usually have to

money comes from die-hard Republi-
can or Democratic contributors. How-
ever, a lot of the money comes from

One of the most powerful tools
lobbyists have is the ability to infuse
large amounts of cash into the politi-
cal campaigns of people who vote
their way. It is not good that politi-
cians can gain thousands of dollars
for their political war chests if they
vote the way a special interest with
money wants them to.
Traditionally, the largest edge
incumbents have, is the ability to build
a large campaign war chest If we want
to make the playing field level, we
must address campaign financing.
Most term limit options cur-
rently being discussed will allow leg-
islators in Raleigh or Washington to
run for at least twelve more years. In
other words, a state legislator could
run for reelection five times, and then
run for state senate and congress five
or six times apiece.

cians from cow-towing to those who

If we truly want to change our
political system, we should start with

we may have new faces in government,
but the same old problems.
I wish 1 could say I had no prob-
lem with African-American History
Month, but doing so would be dishon-
est. It does indeed bother me.
I'm not offended by the idea of
recognizing the efforts of others. Far
from it Anytime nowadays that we can
acknowledge the beneficial works of
others instead of rummaging through
their affairs, scandals or shortcom-
ings, we should. Anytime we can
praise effort, persistence and hard
work, we must And anytimeNve can
underscore the importance and inspi-
ration of the examples of individuals
overcoming great obstacles and dis-
advantages and make a contribution
to society, we need to.
And that is what African-Ameri-
can History is for. However. I believe
it's wrong to emphasize the color of
one's skin in recognizing his or her
accomplishments, and that also is
what African-American History Month
In 1987, when Reverend Jesse
Jackson was campaigning to be the
Democratic candidate for President,
he spoke to the assembled students
of my high school in Spartanburg, S.C.
In a school in which drug abuse of all
kinds were prevalent and the country
was in the midst of "Just Say Noisms,
Jackson sought to inspire the students
to believe in themselves without the
habitual dependence of recreational
drugs (and, of course, trying to sway
Dixiecrat support through the chil-
dren of registered voters).
His message was one of recog-
nizing the potential of all people, in
all endeavors, in every level of our
society. It was a . ean to open-
mindedness and possibility, a message
even then I realized he was relying
on in order to successfully run for
President. But it came across as sin-
cere and, seven years later, I remem-
the cause of
ber that speech and I remember how
I enthusiastic I felt afterward.
While I realize that events such
as African-American History Month is
designed to educate everyone and
encourage them to strive, by empha-
sizing one ethnic group, all other
groups are alienated. And while I don't
think the act of acknowledgment dis-
courages those who aren't being given
the spotlight, to say that the accom-
plishments of any people are made
more significant by their skn color is
tantamount to disavowing the efforts
of others because of the same crite-
The rationale for the February
celebrations, as I understand it is to
enlighten others as to the efforts of
people who began under great disad-
vantages in all areas of society only
to make significant contributions to
that same society. The common ele-
ment of those hailed during this
month is that they were under duress
because they were black. The reason
this is so emphasized is to demon-
strate that everyone deserves a chance
to prove themselves and that color
should no more be a deterrent than
the number of one's teeth. Moreover,
their common point is important to a
society in which "separate but equal"
was considered unconstitutional only
30 years ago. In other words, by show-
ing everybody what any body can do
when given a chance, hopefully eth-
nic prejudice, and bias in general, can
be eliminated. It is done to make

One friend of mine has seen Legends of the Fall
twice already. She claims that she cannot remember the
last time she cried so hard at a film. After the show I
saw a group of girls ahead of me wiping their eyes and
talking about how sad the story was.
The emotional response of these viewers leaves
me puzzled because this film offers nothing more than
what can be seen on any daytime soap opera.
Legends of the Fall tells the sordid tale of a family
in conflict because of a woman. Three brothers, Alfred
(Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Samuel (Henry
Thomas) Ludlow all wish to curry the favor of Susannah
(Julia Ormond), who comes to the Ludlow ranch in Mon-
tana as the fiancee of Samuel. Soon World War I breaks
out and the brothers enlist to aid the British in their
fight against Germany. Tristan returns from the war to
fall in love with Susannah, who never marries Samuel.
Later Tristan leaves the ranch for a sailing voyage, and
Susannah agrees to marry Alfred.
The patriarch of the family, Colonel Ludlow (An-
: thony Hopkins), remains at home while the brothers each
seek out a life for themselves. Colonel Ludlow had quit
the army when he saw how ignominiousry the military
treated the American Indian. The Colonel objects to his
boys going to war but can do little to stop them. He
objects to many of the decisions made by his sons but
seems powerless to change them. He is an ineffectual
father and a rather cold-hearted man.
Many subplots play out in the story, along with
the main theme of a woman splitting apart the family.
None of the subplots further the development of any of
the characters but serve only to add needless complex-
ity to an otherwise simplistic story.
The decision to set Legends of the Fall in the lovely
beauty of the Montana may have been only to give Tristan
a setting to develop his wild nature. The scenery serves
little more than a backdrop to the overwrought melo-
drama happening within the family. Unlike importance
of nature to A River Runs Through It (which also starred
Pitt), the characters in Legends of the Fall seem im-
mune to the majestic splendor of the place in which
The relationship of the Ludlow brothers occurs
only in soap operas and Harlequin romances. No real
bond gets developed. The film substitutes deep under-
standing with horse play between grown brothers. The
shallowness of the love between the brothers is mirrored
by the shallowness of the story.
The story itself seems designed for convenient his-
trionics. Why, for example, do none of the other broth-
ers ever interact with another female (save one shot of
Tristan with a woman assumed to be a prostitute)? Why
does Susannah opt to marry Alfred when abandoned by
Tristan? She must have had friends back on the East
coast and she had already admitted to not loving Alfred.
Why did Alfred even love her? The unanswered ques-
tions arise because of a shallow plot.
The acting in Legends of the Fall falls well short
of emotional. Anthony Hopkins gets wasted in his pater-
nal role. He occasionally shouts as a substitute for act-
ing. Aidan Quinn and Henry Thomas seem to have no
connection to their roles and consequently bring noth-
ing to them. Brad Pitt tries hard to bring the wild, un-
tamed nature of Tristan to life but succeeds only in preen-
ing for the camera in a glamorous role designed to make
women swoon. Pitt does a much more credible job of
playing a wayward brother who few people understand
in A River Runs Through It. Julia Ormond seems con-
tent to allow pained expressions and tears constitute
acting. She allows none of the conflicts troubling her
soul to gain expression. Her character becomes a pos-
session only, one that is desired by all three brothers.
The brothers could have been fighting over a beautiful
horse for as much emotion as Ormond invests in her
The staging of Legends of the Fall also falls short
of acceptable. The World War I scenes are especially bad.
In a pivotal scene between Samuel and Tristan, German
officers pop up at random in the midst of a deserted
battlefield and then disappear again so that Tristan can
have plenty of room to vent his emotions. The town of
Helena, where Alfred eventually lives, looks like it was
slapped together for an old-time celebration in the com-
munity. Little realism exists in any set, giving even more
evidence that this film should have been a TV miniseries.
Usually a film's title can help deepen the under-
standing of the events within the film. Legends of the
Fall inadequately describes the motivation within the
story. None of the characters could be called legendary.
Brothers or Montana or some other appropriately
See DOWN page 8
Legends of the Fall is a story of love: between
men and women, between fathers and sons, between
brothers and between friends. It is also about the com-
plexity of that love and how it can turn joy into de-
spair in less than a heartbeat.
But most impo.tantly. Legends of the Fall is
about the rise, and yes, the fall of a family torn apart
by circumstances beyond their control.
The story centers around Tristan Ludlow (Brad
Pitt), one of three sons born to Colonel William Ludlow
(Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Isabel. Tristan, along
with his older brother Alfred (Aidan Quinn) and his
younger brother Samuel (Henry Thomas), live with
their father in Montana. The boys' mother returned
to the city while they were still children to escape the
harsh winters and the even harsher responsibilities
of being a wife and a mother.
Running away from responsibility is one of the
many themes in this complex film. The screenplay is
extremely active; however, it does not fall into the "too
much action, not enough plot" trap that many movies
do. It can perhaps be said that there is too much plot,
rather than a lack of twists and turns, that tosses the
Ludlow family into a sea of impossible choices. A few
people 1 spoke with found it difficult to follow and I
agree that a second viewing may be in order. How-
ever, many great movies, such as the acclaimed
Schindler's List and JFK. require concentration to be
completely understood. Rather than take away from
Legends of the Fall, this quality makes it a treat to
Legends of the Fall is wonderfully written, acted
and directed. The characters are real and alive, thanks
to both the dedication of the actors and to director
Edward Zwick. Brad Pitt portrays the wild Tristan with
clarity and true emotional expression. One of the more
moving scenes in the film, Samuel's death scene, was
handled exceptionally well by both Pitt and Thomas.
The extreme loss Tristan feels at his brother's death
was expressed without being overly melodramatic as
many actors tend to do.
Anthony Hopkins deserves much praise for his
portrayal of Colonel Ludlow. This role was especially
demanding, because the Colonel spends the latter half
of the movie partially paralyzed from a stroke. Hopkins
allows Ludlow's inner strength to remain even after
the stroke. His genuine concern and love for his sons
conflicts with his strict military training to provide
an interesting and moving emotional struggle as he
tries to raise his sons alone.
I found the performances of Quinn and Thomas
extremely interesting. They, along with Pitt, were ex-
tremely believable as brothers. I especially enjoyed the
scenes before the war when the brothers became re-
acquainted. The horseplay and frank conversations re-
minded me of my own family, and the joking was good-
natured and taken in stride. Julia Ormand, who por-
trayed Susannah, the woman who comes between the
brothers, was also very good in her role. I would have
liked to see her establish the relationship with Samuel
better, however. I could easily believe her love for
Tristan but had a somewhat harder time understand-
ing her relationship with Samuel.
There are a few unanswered questions raised in
Legends of the Fall. In the beginning of the film, the
sheriff comes to the Ludlow ranch in search of a man
named Tom Cullen. It is never explained who Cullen
was or why the sheriff wanted him. It is taken for
granted that this was included in the film to give Colo-
nel Ludlow a chance to show that he is no longer coop-
erative in any way towards the government or the mili-
tary. However, I believe this was already established
and the entrance of Cullen into the script simply left
me wondering. Also, I believe Tristan's departure for
war was slightly contrived; while both Alfred and Samuel
express avid political interests, Tristan never shows even
a passing interest in the war. He enlists to "take care of
Samuel which seems just a bit trite.
None of these minor problems takes away from
the overall beauty of the film. Despite its complexity, I
found it surprisingly easy to follow. I felt that the ma-
jority of the relationships were well-defined, although
I would have liked to see more of the relationship be-
tween Samuel and Susannah. I do applaud the writer
for not bowing to the traditional "happy ending" re-
quirement that runs rampant in too many of today's
movies. Writers who feel that everything must have a
storybook ending usually end up with an impossibly
overdone story. That is not the case with Legends of
the Fall, which, although sad. ends remarkably well.
Legends of the Fall is a wonderful film. Out of
10 stars, it rates a 9.
The Simpsons may well be the
best show in the history of Ameri-
can television. At the very least, it's
in the top 10.
I don't make this claim
lightly, or without a fairly intimate
knowledge of the 40 years of TV
that precede the show. Certainly,
The Simpsons doesn't have the
heart of a show like MASH or the
mind-bursting dramatic potential of
The Twilight Zone. But then, it's
not supposed to.
The Simpsons is that rarest
of all network TV animals, a social
satire. Chronicling the animated ad-
ventures of the Simpson family, the
show is the creation of Matt
Greening, whose comic strip "Life
in Hell" runs in alternative press
newspapers across the country. The
Simpsons trades in taking nasty
shots at such American institutions
as Christianity, the elderly and femi-
nism. There are no sacred cows
here, no matter which side of the
political fence they graze on.
Rest assured, this is not stan-
dard TV fare. Enslaved as it gener-
ally is to the moral interests of a
few rabid televangelists and a
gaggle of blue-haired old ladies
from Ann Arbor, Michigan, network
television seldom rises above the
level of that simpering vehicle for
the troll-doll-like Olson twins, Full
House. Thankfully, The Simpsons
is the rare exception.
Set in the fictional commu-
nity of Springfield (an ail-American
town if ever there was one), The
Simpsons puts all of the nation's
foibles on ugly display. The police
are donut-swilling incompetents.
The mayor is a corrupt parody of
Ted Kennedy. Beer is a drug used
to keep the populace docile. Repub-
licans are evil manipulators, inter-
ested only in making themselves
richer. Democrats are less evil but
totally incapable of governing. The
Simpsons themselves are the
nuclear family gone horribly wrong,
dysfunctional to the core.
As Homer Simpson himself
would say, "It's funny 'cause it's
It's that truthfulness (cynical
as it may be) that rubs some people
the wrong way. The Fox Network
reportedly gets over a hundred let-
ters and phone calls every week
complaining about the show. Much
to its credit, however, Fox mostly
ignores the complaints. The
Simpsons was one of the network's
first big hits, and the execs leave it
So the American public is
treated every week to another
manic outing. And manic it is. The
jokes come fast and hard on this
show; it's not unusual for me to
spend five full minutes laughing.
Most TV comedies can barely mus-
ter up enough humor to give me
even one giggle in that time, but
The Simpsons barrels along like a
Even still, the humor never
works to the detriment of the story,
or even, most amazingly, the devel-
opment of the characters. This is a
show with a sense of history, and
we're occasionally given glimpses
into the past that round out even
the most stereotypical characters.
So we know, for example, that
Homer's alcoholic friend Barney
wouldn't be the drunken sod he is

Hey kids, do you like that
zany new rock and roll? Well, the
newest phase of rock and roll for
the '90s is here, and it's Platinum.
Platinum Jive that is, the 16-track
debut album of the retro-rock band
The album has a little some-
thing for everyone with a mixture
of sounds ranging from teeny
bopper alternative to rap and back
a couple of decades to an almost
Led Zeppelin Pink Floyd sound.
Almost. Regardless of who Big
Chief's influences may be, the band
has meshed them all in a new sound
experience that is, without a doubt,
all their own.
The album starts off strong
with "Lion's Mouth" and "Takeover
Baby Both songs have a pseudo-
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassline and
throbbing drum beats. Barry
Henssler's grating voice detracts
somewhat from the intensity of the
music, but the lyrical content of the
songs overshadows his shortcom-
"John's Scared" is also a great
song that utilizes the Floydian
space intro and bass sound com-
bined with impressively organized
guitar distortion that Henssler can
actually compete with.
"Armed Love" kicks a bit
harder than the earlier cuts with
surging guitars and a dangerous
bassline that is vaguely reminiscent
of Metallica before they hit their tal-
ent peak in the '80s.
Every real band in history has
had a "love sucks" song, and for
Big Chief "Armed Love" is that
song. "All Downhill From Here" is
the closest thing to standard rock
and roll on the album. The song has
a bluesy bassline and a pleasantly
steady beat, not to mention an ap-
pearance from the most cliched in-
strument from the '70s - the
dreaded Partridge Family tambou-
The song's lyrics are nearly
meaningful: "I knew the truth but
I misplaced it, I had a mind but I
slowly erased it" are common sen-
timents among many people these
The best song on the album
as far as musical content is con-
cerned is "The Liquor Talkin a
mellow, easygoing drinking song
that is just, well, damn funny.
There are only three abso-
lutely terrible songs on the album.
"Map Of Your Failure" is a dron-
ing, repetitious track that neither
musically nor lyrically goes any-
where worth going. The song is dull
and tries to be cutting edge too hard
to be good.
"Bona Fide sung by a char-
acter who calls himself Schooly D,
is a gangsta rap wannabe tune, com-
plete with inane sexual references
and lame word choices common to
the anything-for-a-rhyme syndrome.
The song is hopelessly lost on an
otherwise listenable album.
The third dud on Platinum
Jive, "Philly Nocturne is not even
a song. It is 31 seconds of static,
guitar and acoustic bass, not to
mention a complete waste of noise.
With only three out of 16
songs that are weak. Platinum Jive
promises to be a favorite of the new
rockers and old rockers alike. Wait,
there is a bonus to Platinum Jive
- one of those sneaky hidden songs
at the end of the CD.

"Mr. Minnesota" stars for Pirates
In time, Skipp Schaefbauer, a
6-foot-4. 200-pound sophomore
guard from Elk River, Minn. (HS)
may become one of the best all-
around guards to play at ECU.
Minnesota's 1992-93 "Mr. Bas-
ketball" made the CAA All-Rookie
team last year after averaging 6.3
points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists
per game. Unimpressive numbers at
first glance, but his playing time was
limited due to being behind All-CAA
guard Lester Lyons. He flashed ath-
letic ability that the Pirates have sel-
dom had to go with such a big
Schaefbauer has both the
highest vertical leap (36.5) and
bench press (295) on the squad. He
has the ability to rise over defend-
ers and dunk the basketball, while

This season, his first as a full-
time starter, has seen Schaefbauer
average 12.4 points per game, 3.7
rebounds and 4 assists while shoot-
ing 30 percent from behind the arc.
A big part of the Pirates' suc-
cess this season is Schaefbauer, who
could score more, but unselfishly
gives up the ball to open teammates.
�Taking Lester's place is not
easy Schaefbauer said. "Those are
some really big shoes to fill.
"The strong points of my game
is my shooting. I would like to put
the ball on the floor more and get
to the free throw line more
Schaefbauer has consistently
drawn fouls by beating opponents
with a strong cross-over dribble
when they overplay his jump shot.
"1 definitely use a lot of
dribble moves to get to the basket
Schaefbauer said. "Scouts from
other schools had me pegged as
strictly a catch-it-and shoot-it-type
Schaefbauer has a lot of play-
ers he has modeled his game after,
particularly Indiana Pacers guards'
Reggie Miller and Damon Bailey.
"Reggie Miller is my favorite
pro Schaefbauer said. "He has the
purest jumper in the NBA. Bailey
is similar to me in size and height.
He's a real good shooter and smart
player. He know's how to get to the
free throw line
Schaefbauer was the subject
of a lot of recruiting attention af-
ter a great senior season playing
at Elk River High School. He aver-
aged 23.5 points, five rebounds and
eight assists per game for the Elks,
leading them to a 26-2 record and
a third-place finish in the state tour-
"I visited Washington State,
Wyoming, UNC-Wilmington and
ECU Schaefbauer said. "It is kind
of a difficult process. I didn't know
anyone who had gone through it
before. I didn't realize it was such
a business, with schools banging
down the door one day and then
next week decide they like another
player more. I'm very happy with
the decision I made to attend ECU
Making the transition to col-
lege has been an easy one for
Schaefbauer due to the similar
coaching styles of his high school
coach and ECU head coach Eddie
Payne. Both are strict and disci-
plined coaches, according to the
Minnesota native, that let each
p'ayer know his particular role on
the team, while not yelling or
screaming at them.
In the classroom, the GTE
Cosida Academic-All American can-
didate has excelled as well.
Schaefbauer attributes his aca-
demic success to time management
and having the self-discipline to
study after long hours on the court.
"I have decided to go into
sports psychology for a masters
program Schaefbauer said. "Even-
tually, I will probably end up in
coaching. I can't see myself doing
anything not related to basketball.
1 would like to play in the NBA, and
I feel like that is a realistic goal if I
continue to improve and become a

As far as team goals,
Shaefbauer is shooting for nothing
less than first place in the Colonial

Pirates are in fourth after losing
to Old Dominion on Tuesday night.

ODU opened the second half with
a 7-0 run that ate over three minutes of
the clock. Parham drove to the basket
and scored the Pirates' first points of the

ing, bringing the Pirates momentarily out
of their comatose state.
Sessoms and Pirate forward Tim
Basham traded quick threes before ECU
shooting guard Skipp Schaefbauer cut
the lead to 51-50 with two free throws at

A steal and Sessoms' second jam
of the night forced the Pirates to call a
time-out to regroup, down 58-52. ECU
came out of the break with a 6-0 run
and tied the game on a Robinson 15-
foot baseline jumper with just under five
minutes left in regulation.
"They hit some big shots down
the stretch Parham said. "Sessoms re-
ally carrid them in the second half
Through the remainder of the
game, ODU would attempt only one field
goal. However. ECU granted the Mon-
archs 14 shots from the charity stripe
over the last 4:23, of which they con-
verted on 11.
Down 67-60 with 49.5 seconds left
in the game, the Pirates got hot Parham
hit a spinning jumper for two, and ECU's
suddenly stifling defense caused Sessoms
to turn the bail over. A Robinson tip-in
cut the lead the three with 25.8 seconds
The Pirates went into a full-court
press of their own but had to foul Mon-
arch freshman Dennis Dunlap to stop the
clock. Dunlap missed both free
throws,but made gxxi on his next two
chances at the line with 7.7 seconds re-
maining, making the score 69-66.
Freshman Othello Meadow
missed a last chance three-pointer to send
from page 9
the game to OT as time ran out on the
Pirates at The Scope. Meadows and
Damon Van VVeerdhuizen were both in
the ECU backcourt as both Parham and
Schaefbauer fouled out in the last minute
"Both Skipp and Tony had fouled
out" Payne said. 0' popped open on
the play and drove down the court It

One of the more memorable -�
moments came for her in the open- j
ing exhibition game of the 1993-94 ,
"I went out and played hard, ,
and I saw that 1 couid play with the
big girls Blackmon said. "I think
I scored, like, twenty points that
game. It was my first real college
Coach Thompson encouraged ,
Blackmon as she 'came of age' last .
"And then all of a sudden Th- �
ompson said. "It was. 'Okay Fruky,
this is your position. I think she re-
ally felt a little more comfortable u
having the weight of vying to start t.
on everybody else's shoulders
Blackmon went on to lead the
Lady Pirates last year in both scor-
ing (14.2) and rebounding (6.9), and
was named the team MVP and a
member of the second team AU-CAA.
She scored her career-high last sea-
son with 27 points against Appala-
chian State (3694).
So how does one improve on
a season like that?
"My assigned opponent is .
averaging 'so many' points a game
Blackmon said. "My goal for each
game is to not let her get her scor- f
ing average. I got to 'D' her up, I n
got to play good defense that game
Offensively, though, Blackmon
is a team player. (
"I'm not the type of person
that has to get the ball and score
'so many' points Blackmon said.
"If they come, they come. I like all
my teammates to play
While Blackmon certainly has
enough to keep her busy with bas-
ketball, she still looks ahead to
"I want to go into child devel-
opment Blackmon explained. "I
like working with kids, mainly dis-
abled kids, handicapped kids. After
I finish college, I might go to get a
another degree in therapy
"I do a lot of work with Spe-
cial Olympics, and I work camps and
stuff Blackmon said. "I was around
them when I was growing up. My
high school softball coach was in-
volved in the Special Olympics as
the director, and we did a lot with
In closing her comments to
The East Carolinian. Blackmon
shared her sentiments about atten-
dance of women's basketball games.
"In high school at Greene
Central, a lot of people came to
watch the girls play, because we had
a winning record, and the guys
didn't have a winning .record
Blackmon recalledBut now, I see
how it is � now, all the people come
see the guys play
"I don't know what we'll have
to do to get people to come to our
games Blackmon said. "I hope
people will come and support us in
any way they can
"We've been trying to impress
upon the players that if they give
everything they've got, regardless of
what the score is, peopl: will come
out and watch Thompson said.
