RALEIGH (AP) - The mauling
of a Cary boy by his father's pet
tiger has prompted the Raleigh City
Council to ban pet cats and bears
weighing more than 35 pound from
inside the city limits.
Tyler Forsythe suffered critical
head injuries when the 6-foot, 250-
300 pound tiger got beyond his
father's control on Thanksgiving
Day in Apex. Until Tuesday, the only
pet animals banned from Raleigh
were pigs.

the computer message in hopes that
it would rally stu-

which opened in August of 1994. The
restaurant offers formal dinning for

Citing a printed document, Pitt
County Health Department STD Pro-
gram Coordinator Ann Warner said
that 50 to 75 percent of the people
who are infected in North Carolina
are unaware that they are infected.
As of Dec. 29, 1995, there were
6,127 cases of HIVAIDS reported in
North Carolina, Warner said. She said
there were 191 cases reported in Pitt
County, 87 in Wilson County, and nine
reported in Greene County.
As of April 1995, Pitt County had
the third largest rate of HIVAIDS in
North Carolina, Warner said.
Warner said that the number of
15 to 20 year olds diagnosed with the
disease has increased in white males
by 63 percent, in white females by 500
percent in African American males by
385 percent and in African American
females by 1,050 percent. She said
that women are becoming infected at
twice the rate of men.
"We encourage anybody who
wants to test to call and have a test
done Warner said.
For more information, call the
Pitt County Health Department at
413-1300. The Reach For Me Clinic,
a free public clinic especialty devoted
to HIVAIDS counseling and testing,

Our View
Just like Rodney Dangerfield, women's athletics at ECU get
no respect. They don't get much support either.
If you have attended a women's basketball game this sea-
son, no doubt you had plenty of places to sit. Then again, you
didn't see a reverse dunk over three defenders, did you? There
are no seven foot centers and cross-court alley-oops, either. That's
one reason women's athletics don't receive any support - be-
cause it's perceived as not being as exciting as a men's game.
This lack of interest and attendance leads to poor gate re-
ceipts, and when a sport doesn't make any money, it doesn't
receive much money from the athletic administration.
No support from the administration leads to poor recruit-
ing. No one wants to go to a school that has worn the same
uniforms for the past 12 years and no one attends the games.
Being in a top basketball conference remedies recruiting
problems real fast. UNC-Chapel Hill has a huge women's basket-
ball following. And when you talk women's basketball, you have
to talk about such women's powerhouses as Tennessee and the
SEC (Southeastern Conference). They have a packed house every
What this all boils down to is winning. People go see teams
that win. Top basketball conferences are made of teams that
win. Recruits go to a school where they think they can win. It is
for that reason we need to give ourselves a little more time.
ECU has taken the first stride in becoming a winning program
by bringing in Hall of Famer Anne Donovan to coach the Lady
The support is also on the rise, partly due to Donovan. Like
N.C. State's Kay Yow (who graduated from ECU), people come
to see Donovan as well as the Lady Pirates. It's not every day
you get to see one of the handful of women in the basketball
Hall of Fame.
Our campus radio station WZMB does its part by covering
all of the Lady Pirate home games, and we at TEC provide
game coverage and all of the latest happenings in ECU women's
basketball. But that doesn't seem to spark enough interest to
fill the seats in Minges Coliseum.
There are other women's sports as well, such as women's
soccer (who will compete for only the third year this fall), vol-
leyball and softball who also need our support.
With fan support the school makes money. With money,
the teams get the latest in equipment and facilities. With that,
they get better recruits. With top recruits, you can build a win-
ning program. And with a winning program everyone wins.

Procrastination stops efficiency
I've been meaning to write this
article for a while now In fact, I guess
you could say I have been putting it
off. This is about procrastination. I'm
actually thinking about finishing this
OK. I'm ready to go now. How
often do you have the intention to
start or complete a task and then
something better comes along? For
me, it is a regular occurrence. I love
to procrastinate, it's a way of life.
As an English major, I have to
write an extremely large amount of
papers. Yet I always seem to wait until
the last minute. Why is that? What
causes me to want to wait until there
is no more time left and stress myself
until it's complete?
You could say it's laziness. You
could even say it's irresponsibility. The
plain truth is though, there is always
something better to do than what I
really am supposed to be doing.
Watching Highlander to me is more
fun than writing a long research pa-
per. Watching "People's Court" is even
more interesting than reading a book
about early Spartan societies and how
they coexisted with nature.
By being brought up in a society
that has so many leisure activities, I
have become accustomed to having
options and alternatives right at my
fingertips. If I don't want to read a
book or write a paper, I can play Sega
or go out and have a beer. As many

students know, the most common al-
ternative to studying on a weekend is
to go out and drink and have a good
There is nothing wrong with that.
Using the weekend as a chance to re-
lax and catch up on that sleep you
lost during the week is alright Unfor-
tunately, if there is a lot of work that
was not done during the week, the
weekend is the time to do this. I know,
no one ever wants to do this and so
they put it off until later. Hence forth,
procrastination is created!
Why sit down and read a book
and learn something when you can
procrastinate and go out and have
fun? Why let a dismal paper ruin your
weekend when you can procrastinate
until Monday? These are the moral
dilemmas that I have to deal with ev-
ery time something better comes
along instead of school work.
Yet procrastination is not found
solely in college students. Procrasti-
nation is a trait that can be found in
every person alive, perhaps even in
some that are dead. Do you see any
dead person hard at work completing
tasks that they should of done before?
I don't think so!
Procrastination whether big or
small, is found everywhere. When you
go to the mall and you want to go
look at some stores, yet you are hun-
gry. Do you put off eating until after
you shop, or do you put off shopping
until after you have eaten?
I am ready to move to
Procrastinationville. A place where
everyone is so lazy that the town was
never even built. That's the place for
me. I could go there, relax and have a
good time and put off all work until
later or, I could wait until later and
then move to Procrastinationville.
I think that without procrastina-
tion, this world would be more effi-
cient and better run. Of course I would
not want to live in a world where 1
actually do everything I am supposed
to do, when I'm supposed to do it
Well, I think that this pretty
much sums up procrastination, I have
more I would like to say about this
subject but I think I will write it later.

Man triumphs machine
Garry Kasparov, a 32-year-old
Russian and world chess champion,
has done what he said he would do -
beat IBM's Deep Blue supercomputer
in classical chess. Kasparov won in
the sixth game by trapping the bishop
and rook with his pawn. He took
home $400,000.
The event had been billed as the
ultimate contest. Man vs. Machine by
the sponsors, ACM, a New-York based
computer society, along with the print
and TV media. The match which took
place ih Philadelphia at the Pennsyl-
vania Convention Center, was watched
by literally millions on the World Wide
Web, at IBM's live site. An estimated
10 million people or five million on
Saturday and five million on Sunday,
Feb. 10th and 11th, accessed the site.
The chess-playing supercomputer
had been designed by IBM scientists
to beat chess champions. But what it
turned out to be was a failed experi-
ment What puzzles me though, is why
would scientists want a machine to
beat a man? What purpose would it
serve if it had beaten Kasparov?

that computer technology is only a
tool. It is a tool useful in acquiring
and storing data, nt a ruler or po-
tential ruler of our lives.
Imagine a man who has just
purchased that convertible he's been
wanting to get for years. After he
buys it, he shows it to his wife who
says, "Honey, do you own the car, or
does the car own you?" Suddenly, he
doesn't know how to respond. He
wants to say "he" owns the car but
he realizes he's been spending a lot
of time with his car and not his wife.
The proper answer would be the car
owns him. We must not let the com-
puter own us.
Is it the scientist's goal to de-
sign a computer that owns us you
ask? I don't know exactly, but it is
our right to seriously question their
purpose, especially in a Democratic
nation such as this.
We must break the cycle. We are
using computer technology too much
as a crutch, we are becoming more
and more a lazy society that doesn't
want to leave our homes for work or
play. Take successful business corpo-
rations in a working situation; they
would rather fly to the customer to
make deals personally and close the
session with a handshake and a smile.
Shouldn't it be the same in the not
so successful workplace, where the
workers are together? This, specifi-

Customer speaks out
To the Editor,
I purchased two tires, for the
front of my vehicle, from Wal-Mart
store 1379 in Greenville, NC yester-
day. I requested tires sized P22575
15 but tires sized P2157515 were
installed. A P2257515 tire is
"taller" than a P2157515 tire. I
wanted the same size tires all the way
around my vehicle. Wal-Mart store
1379, after being told what I wanted,
sold me something I did not request.
I approached the tire center cus-
tomer service desk after discovering
a mistake had been made in hopes of
rectifying the problem. 1 was subject
to a gauntlet of incompetence with
statements such as, "You'll have to
talk to someone else, I don't handle
that kind of thing Feeling quite dis-
couraged, I left and attempted to solve
the issue via telephone. I was then
told "Well, we charged you the right
price for the smaller tires Not the
point! I was sold the wrong item. I
did not request the smaller tires, nor
do 1 want the smaller tires. My work
schedule dictates I get one Saturday
per month off and Wal-Mart store
1379 employees want me to waste
my precious free time dealing with
their rude incompetence.
Wal-Mart advertisements boast
customer satisfaction as one of their
prime objectives. I strongly disagree.
Customer satisfaction is only impor-
tant to Wal-Mart until they get your
money. Service after the sale is a non-
existent item in Wal-Mart's vocabulary.
Dissatisfied customer is not.

To the Editor,
Three years ago. I enrolled with
Literacy Volunteers of America - Pitt
County. I could read very little. To-
day, my goal is to read the newspa-
per from front to back. My tutor
Sylvia English and I hope to accom-
plish this goal by the end of 1996.
My goal is to encourage the me-
dia and the public to advertise and
talk about literacy. We need to let
people like me know there is help
available and its OK to ask for it. Ev-
ery county in our country should
have its own volunteer literacy pro-
I am 55 years old. It feels really
good to be able to pick up my medi-
cine bottle and read the instructions
for myself. Three years ago I could
not do that. One in four adults in
Pitt County, where I live, cannot read
as well as they should. They cannot
fill out job applications or help their
children with school work. In the
United States, more than 48 percent
of the adult population has reading
deficiencies. The reason 1 speak out
about my illiteracy is to try to get
others to get the help they need. I
lived in the darkness of illiteracy. No
one should have to live there.
I am asking you to help me. Let's
make our hometowns and our coun-
try a place where all residents can
enjoy the progress and independence
that reading can bring.

"Sawyer" brings
mischief to Wright
Jennifer Cofeman
Senior Writer
Ah, to be young and carefree
Those were the days. Nothing to
do but go fishin' and catch frogs and
do a few chores around the house and
maybe go to schooi, if you had to. The
lazy days - that was Tom Sawyer's
And what adventures! Finding
pirate's treasure, being held hostage
by a real Injun, and rafting on the
Mississippi. Was there nothing that
this boy couldn't do?
It appears as though there's one
thing he hasn't done, but it won't be
that way for long. Tom Sawyer has
never been to ECU. But that's about
to change.
On Saturday, Feb. 24, the ECU
Family Fare Series will present Mark
Twain's "Tom Sawyer" as performed
by the American Family Theater
(AFT). The AFT has been performing
for 23 years in over 500 cities. Their
shows have been seen by aver 3 mil-
lion children and families.
"Tom Sawyer" is the story of a
rambunctious young boy who lived in
Mississippi in the late 19th century.
In fact, rambunctious might be too
mild a term to use in describing Tom.
He's a con man, swindler, trouble-
maker and clown all rolled up in one
cherubic face. His best friend is Huck
Finn, who is also the subject of one
of Twain's novels. Together the two
are like a miniature tornado, but they
can leave a trail of destruction that is
nowhere near miniature.
You might be inclined to think
that Tom and Huck can't get into any
more trouble than all boys do, but
think again. In the course of the novel,
Tom proves himself to be the greatest
swindler of all time by conning all of
his friends into whitewashing his Aunt
Polly's fence - a chore that Tom was
supposed to do. It's not as if his
friends couldn't do their own white-
washing, either. He simply convinced
them that he was having more fun
than he'd ever had before, and so of
course they wanted to join in. But oh
no, it was too much fun! So darn if
they didn't pay him to let them do it
How's that for a con artist?
Another of Tom's schemes is to
form a club. Sounds innocent doesn't
it? He probably formed a 4-H club
maybe, or a Boy Scout troop. Not Tom.
To get into this club, you have to com-
mit murder. But hey, it's all in good
fun, right?
I don't mean to make it sound
like Tom is a rotten apple. He's actu-
ally a pretty good kid. The whitewash-
ing thing - well, hey, I've been guilty
of trying to convince my friends that
'gullible' isn't in the dictionary, so I
can't really say anything. And the
murder thing - well, no one ever ac-
tually does it Underneath it all, Tom
Sawyer has a good heart
This story is a timeless classic. It
has been made into movies, cartoons,
short stories and plays, and has been
enjoyed by millions of children and
adults in each of its forms. Don't miss
this performance, sure to be as popu-
lar as last year's "Aladdin" (also per-
formed by the AFT).
Tickets are on sale now in the
Central Ticket Office. Showtime is 2
p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $8 for
the public, $6 for ECU FacultyStaff
and $5 for ECU students and youth.
Group rates are available. For more
information, or to purchase tickets,

Comics lose their underwear
Mark Brett
Ufestyle Editor
So you heard that comic books aren't just for kids any-
more, and you went to look for some grown-up comics. But all
you saw was superheroes, the same kind of stuff you outgrew
or didn't read when you were a kid.
It is true that the comic book maiket is still ruled by guys
who run around in underwear. They're fun if you're into
that kind of thing, but they turn many mainstream readers off.
Luckily, there are alternatives, if you know where to look.
To help you in this quest our diligent "Notes from the
Underground" staff has compiled the following list of alterna-
tive comics for your reading pleasure
Strangers in Paradise by Terry Moore. Comics that ap-
peal to women are few and far between, but this is one of the
best Strangers is the story of Katchoo (an artist with a myste-
rious past who may or may not be a lesbian) and Francine
(Katchoo's ultra-neurotic roomate and best friend). It's about
relationships and the bad choices people sometimes make.
While Moore's characterizations are sometimes too broad for
their own good, the series is full of genuine human moments,
and the artwork is lushly beautiful.
Lost Girls by Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie. Lost Girls
is well, technically, it's okay, it's pornography. But if s not
the sweaty, groping, obvious kind of stuff we think of as pom.
The story of three women of various ages who meet at a hotel
in the early 20th century, Lost Girls explores female sexuality
and sexual morality in a world on the brink of sudden, sweep-
ing change. While the sex is graphic, there's not a sleazy mo-
ment anywhere.
From Hell by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell. From
Hell is a historical drama about Jack the Ripper. Part crime
story, part horror, part psychological thriller, part magic real-
ism, this is possibly the best comic on the market right now. In
much the same way that Lost Girls looks at sex, From Hell
looks at violence and its affect on history.
By the same author A Small Killing, Watchmen.
Sin City by Frank Miller. This book brings back crime
comics with a vengeance. Imagine hard men walking lonely
through rainy nights. Imagine smoky dames with barroom
eyes slugging back shots of hard liquor. Imagine Mickey
Spillane filtered through Clint Eastwood's Jagged Edge, and
you might begin to get the idea. If you like your fiction hard-
boiled, baby, it don't get any harder than this.

More sleaze needed in "Savannah

Senior Writer
Okay, I'll admit it
When I first heard that Aaron Spell-
ing, creator of such winners as "The
Love Boat" "Charlie's Angels and
"Dynasty had another show develop-
ing for the WB (Warner Bros.) network,
I was kinda happy.
I mean, Spelling is the daddy of

shows that are the rock variety of brain
candy. And 1 love me some brain candy.
Well then, I thought, Spelling's new
show "Savannah" can't be any differ-
ent' It's probably about the trials and
tribulations of a porn star or stripper
named Savannah! Like "Showgirls" for
the small screen. At least it won't star
Tori, so that's a plus in its favor. Well, I
was wrong.
"Savannah" is not about strippers
or pom queens, unfortunately. What it
is, in fact is a prime time soap in the
grandest tradition. Why, the title itself
harkens back to the Ewing family of
CBS' "Dallas That is where the simi-
larities end. Where "Dallas" was enter-
taining, over-the-top-at-times fluff, "Sa-
vannah" is well, just dull.
Admittedly, I did miss the big two-
hour premiere episode, so that could
have set up some interesting plot machi-
nations. But shouldn't these plotty tid-
bits be evident in the episodes we're
watching now? So far, here's what I've

friends. Reese (Shannon Sturges) the

Somber Vegas
finally hits town

Bold, brave, artistic films appear
in Greenville about as often as snow.
One has opened at the Buccaneer
theater called Leaving Las Vegas and
this humble critic beseeches every
citizen who appreciates art to see it
The only way to encourage Carmike
Cinemas to show first-rate artistic
endeavors in Greenville is for patrons
to support the rare artistic film that
opens here.
As the final credits rolled on
Leaving Las Vegas, I sat stunned and
bewildered in my seat Only after the
lights came up did I realise that for
two hours I had not moved. The im-
ages on the screen before me had been
so engrossing, and so disconcerting,
that for two hours I focused entirely
on the film.
The subtitle of Leaving Las Ve-
gas is "a love story The uncondi-
tional love in this film will make many
an audience member reconsider their
own meager attempts at unconditional
love. The relationship between an al-
coholic named Ben Sanderson (Nicho-

deep, urgent need on the part of each
to find companionship. Ben and Sera
must accept the lifestyle chosen by the
other in order to forge a meaningful
To say that Leaving Las Vegas is
like no other film 1 have ever seen
would be unfair to the film because it
defies comparison. Leaving Las Ve-
gas blazes new territory in cinematic
storytelling. The lurid details of the
film - the drinking, the sex, the vio-
lence - place it on the border of por-
nography. But the only way to tell a
tale of this intensity is to include the
sordid scenes. The emotional inten-
sity of the storytelling breaks free of
Hollywood romantic cliches. Leaving
Las Vegas defies all standard, conven-
tional rules of storytelling and by do-
ing so rises onto a new plane of

they call it Or should I say, "Music for

However, I must say that after lis-
tening to their self-titled debut this
powered quartet from Massachusetts is
exactly what they claim to be.
The band members compliment
each other very well. Each are good mu-
sicians in their own right When each
musician does his or her own thing to
contribute to the vibe presented, you
can expect a sound that is not fixated
around one instrument or individual.
You can also expect a band that is fo-
cused on playing for one reason: the
love of it
0 Their sound changes often. From
moody waves that Primus might have
sailed over to the funk of Phish to Chi-
cago-style blues, this band is all over
the place.
It seems as if they're not afraid to
try anything. To do that a band must
have consistency, and that is exactly
what drummer Erik Egol gives
Schleigho. His jazzy high hat enables
them to play off riffs that many bands
have only wanted to do.
As far as the band's direction goes,
I would have to say that the vocals are
not the focal point The singing stood
second in line to the outstanding
rhythm section laid down by guitarist
Suke Cerulo, and bassistvocalist Drew
That sound gives them groove like
no other, and shares it with everyone
else that they collaborate with. Groove,
in essence, is the most essential con-
cept for this band, as it should be for
everyone else.
I must say that another important
factor that made mis CD what it is would
be Jesse Gibbon's unbelievable talent for
vocals and keyboards. Just by the way
he played on this album, one can easity
tell that he has come close to master-
ing the art of jazz, a feat that not many
Combining all of the sources to-
gether that made this album possible,

meaning, but whose music does.
If you're looking for an album with
standard songs that may be written in
standard form, don't buy this album. It's

SAVANNAH fromp�ge
not) a reporter, falls for the cop investi-
gating the murder, and climbs into the
sack with him.
Reese cries and seems put upon a
lot (she was out of work the first epi-
sode 1 caught); she seems to lite some
business-type guy who is a penis, ftyton
is investigating her lover's murder by
sleeping with everybody to get informa-
tion (except women, who she just threat-
ens). Ray Wise (who played Laura
Palmer's dad on the much-underrated
"Twin Peaks") plays Edward Burton, an
unscruplious tycoon that seems to have
something to do with the murder and
some stripper named Bunny. I think
Burton is Peyton's stepdad, and he
somehow got her mother sent to prison.
Does any of this make any sense?
The important thing here is that it
shouldn't matter! What these prime-
time soaps have to do is be entertain-
ing without being dense. Unlike daytime
soaps, "Savannah" is only on one night
a week, so its storylines have to be well
over the top to engage a viewer and
make them want to come back. Believe
it or not, "Melrose Place" has done this
very well, giving us characters that
range from the absurd and whirry to a
Lady Macbeth wannabe. "Savannah"
drags like a Georgia summer, with no
mint julips to keep you company.
What this show needs to do is play
with its characters a little more; make
them more interesting. All three ac-
tresses are gorgeous, but only Luner
seems to have a hold on the character
she'd like to play. Maybe her time on
the show "Just The Ten of Us" has made
her hungry for a real role.
I read somewhere that Sturges left
a daytime soap to do "Savannah I
think she was really canned for being
Last, but not least Robin Lively is
the most disappointing of the three to
me. I remember (and loved) Lively on
"Doogie Houser, MD" and "Chicago
Hope where she played nice-girl
nurses with bizarre eccentricities. This
show makes her really boring. Why
can't she play the Smart One that has
a near-fatal car crash and comes out
of it wanting to be some sort of super-
villain? 1 don't know. I'm grasping here.
Something should be done.
Maybe they could get Ray Wise
to kill one of the girls, walk around
bug-eyed and crying, screaming, Bob
saw tl !em t'nsaw tl" into the mirror.
That would make this interesting!
As a last straw, what really amazes
me it that there is a parental discre-
tion warning at the beginning of each
episode. Why? There is nothing going
on here that you couldn't catch done
better on the Family Channel. Maybe
that's what "Savannah" needs, some
"NYPD Blue" level controversy. And
I'll bet any of the actors on "Savan-
nah" have a better butt than Dennis
On a scale of one to 10, "Savan-
nah" rates a five. I'm gonna fetch me

Leaving Las Vegas is probably
the most forthright portrayal of alco-
holism ever made. The film unflinch-
ingly accepts the characters for who
they are just as they accept each other.
Just as in life itself, happy endings do
not always happen.
Director Mike Figgis has had a
difficult time in Hollywood, making
the subpar Internal Affairs and the
disappointing Mr. Jones. Nothing in
his past presaged the masterpiece he
would direct here. Figgis needed to
get away from Hollywood for a time
and then make a film completely on
his own without studio pressures.
Adapting John O'Brien's storv (sadly
O'Brien, an alcoholic himself, died
shortly before the release of Leaving
Las Vegas), Figgis opted for cinematic
realism at its purest level.
1 urge you to see Leaving Las
Vegas. It is easily the best film that
has opened in Greenville in the last
12 months and has garnered Oscar
nominations for Cage, Shue and
Figgis. Leaving Las Vegas is quite
simply a magnificent work of art that
will remain with the viewer long after
the theater lights have come on.
On a scale of one to 10, Leaving
Las Vegas rates a 10.

Men's basketball
wins easily
against Wofford
Amanda Ross
Sport Editor
The Wofford Terriers had
planned to come into Minges and
pull off a victory, but the Pirates
sent them home with their tails be-
tween their legs.
ECU jumped out to a quick 2-0
lead when Von Bryant hit a shot
from underneath. Another Bryant
lay up pushed the score to 4-0. But
Wofford was stubborn in the first
half and just wouldn't go away.
With 10:18 left in the first half,
Wofford cut ECU'S lead to one point,
12-11, but a Damon Van
Weerdhuizen three pointer put ECU
back up by three 15-11.
The Pirates' biggest leads were
11 points and three different times
in the first half, ECU reached that
margin. The first time was from a
Chuck Jones free throw and the last
two times were both from Vic
Hamilton. With 2:44 remaining
Hamilton hit a 15' jumper and then
again with 1:28 left he hit an 18'
Hamilton's jump shot continues
to improve with every game.
"I continue to come in an hour
early before practice and work on
my jump shot Hamilton said. "I
know that I have to step my game
At the half, ECU was ahead by
nine points, 30-21. Tim Basham,
Deron Rippey and Hamilton led ECU
with six points each.
The players knew just because
this was a non conference game with
a team that was 3-19, they couldn't
take them for granted.
"You can't look past any team
Basham said.
"Wofford is a great
team with excellent
shooters and they
came out ready to
play tonight"
Head Coach Joe
Dooley kept encourag-
ing his team to play
hard even throughout
the game.
"It wasn't pretty
but we played well
and we just out
hustled them Dooley
said. "All I kept telling
the team is that we
have to play hard. We
did just what we
needed to do
The Pirates shot
43 percent for the
- first half compared to
Wofford's 20 percent
From the three point
range ECU shot 37
percent while the Ter-
riers shot 12 percent
However, Wofford did out shoot the
Pirates from the line 88 percent to
to back victories
Amanda Ross
Sport Editor
Senior forward Vic Hamilton shows his power inside last
Monday night. Hamilton had 21 points and seven rebounds.
ECU's 63 percent
The second half started off
slowly for Wofford.
ECU's Jonathan
Kerner scored first for
ECU in the second
half with a shot under-
neath. ECU again had
their lead back to
double digits 32-21.
The closest
Wofford came was
with 15:03 remaining
in the second half
when the Terriers
pulled within six
points. The next two
possessions were big
for the Pirates.
Basham hit a three
pointer and on their
next trip down
Hamilton slammed
one in to give the Pi-
rates an 11 point lead
with 12:51 remaining.
The Terriers
couldn't recover after
that, and ECU went on
to build up a 20 point lead when
Kerner nailed two free throws. Af-
ter that lead, the closest Wofford
came was 14 points.
Two slam dunks from Jones and
Kerner towards the end of the game
put the exclamation point on the
Dooley was pleased with Jones'
performance; he came off the bench
and scored five points grabbed seven
rebounds and played quality minutes
for the Pirates.
"Chuck Jones stepped up and
did a very nice job tonight Dooley
ECU won the game by 19
points, 79-60.
Wofford's Head Coach Richard
Johnson said this is the same sce-
nario his team has faced all season.
"You could go to any of our old
post game tapes and run those
Johnson said. "It's the same old
story. We played a pretty good first
half. We had some stupid turnovers
and no pressure. We limited their
second half opportunities, but when
you are shooting 20 percent you are
not going to beat anybody
Hamilton again came off the
bench and had a big night for ECU
as he poured in 21 points and

The Lady Pirates hosted the
Lady Camels Tuesday night, and
ECU never gave up their double
digit lead which they gained half-
way through the first half.
Campbell won the tip off and
jumped out to a 0-2 lead. ECU's
first score came from Justine
Allpress who nailed a shot from the
three point arc. Campbell answered
with a shot of their own and ECU's
head coach quickly called a 20 sec-
ond time out
After that time out, the Lady
Pirates went on an 8-0 run and
made the score 11-6. ECU kept
building on that lead and eventu-
ally, they built themselves a 21
point lead after a LaTesha Sutton
jumper. That same mm����
momentum was
with them
throughout the
rest of the game.
ECU sported
a 16 point lead at
half time, 37-21.
Two Lady Pi-
rates were in
double digits.
Allpress had 11
points while
added 10 of her
own. Other lead- mmmmmmmm
ing scorers were
Tracey Kelley with six and Sutton
and Shay Hayes each contributing
four each

ECU shot 55 percent from the
field and from three point range.
Allpress and Charlesworth com-
bined to hit five of nine three point
Campbell only hit 33 percent
of their shots
in the first half.
The Lady

fense in sync

tinued to ex-
pand their lead

half. The Lady

Tomekia "Fruiky" Blackmon
scored the first bucket for ECU
when she hit a shot from three feet.
Two Lady Pirates
were in double
digits. Allpress
had 11 points
while Danielle
added 10 of her
From that point on a steady stream
of ECU shots found themselves at
the bottom of the net. With 16:47
left in the game, Charlesworth
drilled another three pointer.
The closest Campbell came was
with 9:23 remaining, when the Lady
Camels cut the lead to 12. That was
due in part to the full court press
Campbell put on the Lady Pirates.
According to Charlesworth, the
team worked on breaking the press
in anticipation of the Lady Camels
"We concentrated on it a lot"
Charlesworth said. "I think we took
care of it for the most part and we
had a couple let downs, but I think
we were well prepared for it"
However, ECU didn't give in
and they mounted their own come-
back and with 1:47 remaining, the
Lady Pirates had a 24 point lead.
The game ended with a 19
point lead in favor of the Pirates,

"We are very
excited about this
year's class of in-
coming recruits Roberts said. "We
are looking forward for next season,
because all of the girls come from
competitive backgrounds and have
great experience
Roberts' main concern was to
increase the player pool at ECU by
bringing in some players that will
help out down the road and some
players that will make an immedi-
ate impact.
"We needed a large recruiting
class with some players we can work
ers that will contribute immedi-
ately Roberts said.
The only junior college player
among the official signees is

ECU knew how important it
was not to blow the lead.
"1 think we did a great job of
keeping the lead and keeping our
focus Charlesworth said.
The story of the night was
ECU's defense. Campbell's Felecia
Autry, who averaged 16.5 points
and 12.3 rebounds per game, was
held to just 11 points and only five
'Tracey, Shay and Fruiky
played great defense on that girl
Charlesworth said.
Coach Donovan agreed.
"Tracey and Shay were
matched with her the whole time
Donovan said. "That was their to-
tal focus and they did a nice job
keeping her out of the game
Four Lady Pirates scored
double digits. Charlesworth led
with 19 points, followed by
Blackmon who had 14, Allpress
15 AAj JL from page 11 1 VJlN from page 11

CAA rival Richmond. Tip off for the
game in Richmond is set for 2 p.m.
JtfE AT Tit

"I just try to continue doing what
I do coming off the bench, playing
aggressive and doing whatever I can
do to help the team win Hamilton
Dooiey is pleased with the way
Hamilton is coming off the bench and
scoring in the absence of the injured
Morris Grooms.
"The big thing is, is he is being
very efficient Dooiey said. "He is
really finishing a lot of plays and tak-
ing some really good shots
Kerner and Basham each had 13
points and six rebounds, while Bryant
had 10 points and eight boards.
