committee's goal was to review and

they will report back to the legisla-

As registration approaches, stu-
dents and their advisors must prepare
for the process once again.
Although the whole ordeal may
not be an easy one, the university is
working on improving the system.
According to Dean of Under-
graduate Studies Dorothy Muller, a
Registration Review Committee is
currently seeking input from students
on ways to make the advising and the
registration process a more positive
"We are working through focus
groups to get student input for improv-
ing the registration process Muller
said. "If students want to share their
views on advising and the registration
process, they can send it to the Com-
mittee Chairman Dr. Dave Watkins via
e-mail, or to the office of undergradu-
ate studies
Although these insights will pro-
vide the committee with areas to fo-
cus on for the future, Muller said one
of the biggest problems has already
been removed.
Improvements made to the
university's computer registration ter-
minals have sped up transaction time.

terminals took a longer amount of
time Muller said. "With the new com-
puters, that transaction time is now

A current rumor states that the
Internet will be disconnected today
for cleaning purposes and recom-
mends that individual computers be
terminated to avoid losing files. This
is not true!
"The rumor originated as a mes-
sage posted on the altjoke newslist
said Jack McCoy, systems program-
mer at the Computing and Informa-
tion Center.
The message, meant to be hu-
morous, says the Internet shuts down
and sends robots around every leap
year to clean the system of excessive
files. It then recommends that every-
one connected to the Internet discon-
nect their computer or their files wiH
be eliminated.
"Some people on campus get
this newslist" said McCoy and thaf s
probably where the rumor got
started. I started getting e-mail from
different departments last week ask-
ing if this was true
Concerned that students might
disconnect their computers from the
main system and then have trouble
getting re-connected, McCoy recom-
mends consulting with his depart-
ment before making any changes now
or in the future.

Fleming Residence Hall offers
a group of students the chance to
experience a sense of unity and to
enhance their knowledge.
Fleming residence hall is set up
for students who belong in ECU's
Honors Program or are an ECU
Teaching Fellow. Incoming freshmen
who are teaching fellows are re-
quired to live in Fleming. The resi-
dents who live in Fleming the previ-
ous year and wish to return must
maintain a 3.0 G.P.A. and be partici-
pating in honors classes. For those
rooms still available the University
then invites a select group of fresh-
men who were accepted early and
who will be in the honors program.
Fleming also houses exchange stu-
dents who meet the requirements to
live there.
"The freshmen that we look at
to live in Fleming from the Honors
Program generally have about a
1300 on their SAT, are in the top
10 percent of their graduating class
and graduate with at least a 3.5
said David Sanders, director of the
honors program.
Sanders said Fleming is a very
popular hall to live in and the two
floor building is not large enough
to hold all the interested applicants
who wish to live there.
Lemar Bell, coordinator of
Cotten, Fleming and Jarvis Halls be-
lieves Fleming is a great opportu-
nity for honor students and teach-
ing fellows.
Bell said many of the students
that live in Fleming have classes to-
gether. He feels this gives students
the chance to have out-of-class dis-
cussions which helps them in their

many of the same students in classes

which it does not control, to also
decrease tuition. Some of the state's

Janie's parents are migrant work-

Martinez had recently married Janie's
uncle, so her parents asked Martinez
to watch her.
When Janie's parents, Gilberta
Vasquez and Macedonia Martinez,
came home from work Nov. 4. they
found that Janie and Eleanor Martinez
had vanished, along with all of Janie's
personal items, such as clothes and
even her birth certificate.

Bower said that after Martinez
left Florida, she moved to Lodi. where
she got married.
She then kidnapped Janie. took
her across the country, stopped for

Our View
After a stressful
week of mid-
terms and all-
night studying,
enjoy Spring
Break to the
fullest: just
remember to stay
safe and be
Pack the suitcase, strap on the sunglasses because we're
heading out Finally, that time of the year has arrived.
That's right, it's Spring Break and we couldn't be hap-
pier. It's about time we get a break from the grind of classes,
the headaches of work and the annoyances of everyday life.
No matter where you may be heading, you are bound to have
a good time and one that will remain in your memory for-
ever, because that is what Spring Break is all about, memo-
The best memories are made during this time because
usually it is a time for friends to get together and new friends
to be made, as well as road trips and hotel stays.
Some of us will be heading across the country, some down
south and of course there are those who will go on and spend
a little relaxation time in the comfort of our own home. Wher-
ever you may be going, it's a time to have fun and free your-
self from the normal rut we get into this time of the year.
After the hellish week most of us are having with mid-
terms, it is nice to know that next week we can be carefree
and just relax. We need to gear ourselves up for the second
half of the semester, when, before you know it, finals will be
here. Everyone knows finals are much more stressful than
these midterms we have right now.
For the seniors out there, this' is the last chance they get
to head out anywhere before graduation, and before they get
into the real world. So enjoy.
It is definitely a party time of the year, but don't forget
we all want you to make it back to school in one piece. Spring
break is notorious for partying and consuming more alcohol
than you know what to do with.
We know none of you are going to break these traditions,
and we don't expect you to. But being responsible for your
actions during this time away is just as important for being
responsible for your actions when you are here at school.
While you are away, spend a little extra money to catch a
cab back to the hotel room. As always, never should drinking
and driving be combined.
Think of the consequence of not spending that extra two
dollars. Possibly jail time or even worse, an accident that may
seriously hurt or even kill someone. That someone may be
you or your best friend. Just imagine what kind of lasting
impression a spring break like that would have on you.
We aren't trying to preach, we just want everyone to have
a safe but very enjoyable spring break.
So while you are reading this and packing your bags re-
member the most important thing - have fun, because be-
fore you know it those bags will be packed to come right
back here to ECU.

Corruption gives police bad rap
Abortion pushed too far
I began writing for The East Caro-
linian in the fall of 1994. When I be-
gan writing there were two topics I
never wanted to address. The first was
homosexuality and the second was
abortion. Today that will change.
Abortion is a difficult issue. I think
that it is and should be allowable in
the first three months of pregnancy. It
is valuable to keep this right in regards
to unwanted pregnancy, rape, defor-
mity and danger to the mother. I do
not believe that it should be used as a
form of birth control for couples who
get pregnant repeatedly. It is wrong to
bring a child into the world who is un-
wanted. If they are not wanted, then it
stands to reason that they will not get
the love they need, the support or the
guidance that it will take to become a
successful and productive member of
society. Please note that I chose not
to address adoption which is a good
thing, but is a separate entity that
comes after the choice has been made.
I have always been a strong advo-
cate of freedom of choice. I believe that
this right is a good thing and that it
should be protected.
The topic for today is a procedure
of abortion that goes beyond all moral,
ethical and civilized behaviors. The
topic is partial-birth abortions. This
process is illegal in the state of North
Carolina, and in other states.
In clinical terms partial-birth abor-
tions are referred to as "intact dilation
and evacuation This is to medical ter-

Senior Opinion Columnist
Freedom of
choice is a good
and just thing but
scissors and
brain suction is
just too far.
minology as ethnic cleansing is to so-
ciology. They are both terms that give
a nicer name to an otherwise brutal
According to a Nurse's account
from an excerpt of Newsweek maga-
zine, the process is generally done in
the later stages of pregnancy. The rea-
son for this process is to escape legal
ramification. A baby can survive if it
is born three months premature. This
being the case, they must try to sup-
port the baby if it is fully delivered
Here is how "intact dilation and
evacuation" works: the mother lays
on the delivery table, the doctor uses
forceps to go in and grab the fetus'
legs and pulls them out of the birth
canal. The body is delivered all the
way to the neck so that the only thing
still in the uterus is the head. Scis-
sors are then stuck through the back
of the head and opened; a small tube
is then inserted into the wound and
the brain is sucked out
There was a bill passing through
the House in December that would
put a ban on all partial-birth abor-
tions. It is doubtful that Clinton would
ever accept it
Opponents of the bill cite that it
would be the first step in overturning
Rowe vs. Wade and that the proce-
dure is a medical necessity. They are
wrong on both accounts.
The fact of the matter is that
there have been many attempts to
overturn Rowe vs. Wade and that they
have all failed. There will be more at-
tempts soon. The Christian Coalition
paid a lot of money to get their men
in the legislature and this is one of
the big kickbacks they want to see in
return. It won't happen. Our genera-
tion, collectively, is beginning to vote
more and the generation as a whole
supports abortion, thus, so will our
The second argument of medical
necessity is invalid as well. The fact
of the matter is that over 80 percent
of the partial-birth abortions are in
fact elective, not necessary.
In conclusion, I argue that this
procedure is wrong and should be
done away with. Freedom of choice is
a good and just thing but scissors and
brain suction is just too far.
We, as children, are taught not
to judge a person solely on their race,
gender or religion. How is it that we
feel free to judge people, however, on
the fact that they carry a gun and
wear a badge?
I am a police officer.
That's what I say when I'm asked
what I do for a living. I take pride in
the fact that I have been trained to
protect and serve the people in my
jurisdiction. Every morning when I
put on my dress uniform, I know that
I will make a difference in at least one
person's life that day. That person may
curse me or thank me from the bot-
tom of their heart, but I know that I
have done my sworn duty - to legally
and ethically uphold the law.
Unfortunately, I'm not every po-
lice officer that people come across
in this country. Judging from what I've
heard recently, I don't even come
Is the current thinking about
police officers the same everywhere
- that the power they receive through
a badge and a gun has gone to their
heads? That the laws of the state and
the country have no relevance, but
have been superseded by the unethi-
cal and biased behavior of egotistical
Few and far between are the re-
ports and stories about officers who
do their job quietly and sincerely,
working solely to uphold the law and
protect the public. What you will hear
about are the officers who use racial
slurs, take bribes, beat people into
submission - anything to further their
own aims, not the goals and mission

"You only h
to be lucky
once. The guy
you're tryt
catch ha!
lucky alt of
of a police department
We, as a nation, know all too well
that corrupt police officers exist to-
day. However, just as there are bad
apples in any profession you look at
law enforcement is no different When
a group of people are given the power
to infringe on another person's free-
dom, it is only a matter of time before
one of those people abuses that power.
If that power is abused, than the
abuser is as guilty as the criminal he
sought to prosecute.
Some people would say that the
ends justify the means. If a criminal
is put in jail before he can make an-
other innocent person a victim, it
doesn't matter how that is accom-
plished. However, that statement
makes an absolute mockery of the
justice system we live under today. The
justice system may not win all of the
time, but I can personally attest to the
knowledge that it strives to do so.
An academy instructor once said
something that has stuck with me ever
since: "You (as a police officer) only
have to be lucky once. The guy you're
trying to catch has to be lucky all of
the timer I feel that this statement
may be what keeps the honest and
ethical officers doing their sworn duty
day after day. Simply put I don't have
to abuse the law in order to catch the
bad guy.
If I don't catch him today, I'll
catch him tomorrow. If I don't catch
him tomorrow, I'll catch him next
week. If I don't catch him at all, my
partner will or my sergeant will, or
another officer will, and on down the
line. All I need, as a police officer, is
one break in my investigation to
catch a criminal. The criminal, how-
ever, needs break after break after
break in order to stay that one step
ahead of me.
So I don't need to abuse my
power in order to put criminals in
jail. Unfortunately, officers exist who
believe that the weight of that gun
on their hip allows them the freedom
to act without responsibility. To put
on that badge, to wear that gun -
the person who chooses to do that
takes on an awesome responsibility
not only to himself, but to the public
he serves.
Do corrupt police officers exist
in this world today? Yes. You may
have run into one of them already.
Does that mean that the next one you
have to deal with will be corrupt? No.
A worm in an apple doesn't mean you
stop eating all apples, it means you
throw that apple away and get an-
other one.
IS! Letters to the Editor

"One voice doesn't make the voice wrong.
One voice makes it the voice of courage
To the Editor,
I am writing in response to an
article in your Feb. 27th edition en-
titled, "America Falls to Censorship
I feel like someone needs to have a
talk with your guest columnist be-
cause she obviously does not know
all about she was babbling about.
First, I would like to say that I can
understand the fear that many people
have for censorship. No one likes to
be told that they cannot read or hear
something and that they should read
or listen to something else. The mat-
ter of the fact is that there is a bunch
of material on the Internet that
should not be there. I too was trying
to see how easy it would be to ascer-
tain certain sex information on the
Net and to my disgust I was surprised
with a woman giving a dog oral sex!
Now, let me ask this: how many of
our lives would be dramatically
changed if such garbage was wiped
off the Internet? Answer: they would
not change. There is no need for this;
the Internet was created to make an
abundant amount of information ac-
cessible for people to use and ieam.
It is not so perverts can get their
kicks off of seeing bestiality. Further-
more, I don't know exactly who ex-
plained to her the right of an Ameri-
can citizen, but the First Amendment
does not say that you can say, see,
or hear whatever you want whenever
you want. It says that you have the
right to be informed of government
happenings. There are certain types
of speech that are not protected by
the Constitution and I am glad to see
that this smut is one of them. I don't
want to know that children or even
adults can see the filth crowding up
the Net and I stand behind legisla-
tion that prohibits it. It's about time
that that Mr. President actually did
something to promote the "family
values" he once talked about.

Humans race for charity
Feeling light-headed?
Jennifer Coleman
Senior Writer
The Human Race needs you.
The Human Race, a fund-raiser
sponsored by the Pitt County Volun-
teer Action Center, is a
great way to raise �
money for a number of
local and national chari-
ties. Over 30 non-profit
organizations are al-
ready signed up to par-
How does it work? ������
It's really simple. Non-
profit groups, businesses, families and
individuals (anybody!) can sign up to
walk, run, jog, bike, hop, skip or jump
along Greenville's new Green Mill Run
Greenwav on the day of the event.
Then they canvass the community,
getting pledges and letting the pub-
lic know what they're up to. On March
23, they all come out for a day of
friends, sun and fun.
Not only do participants get to
exercise that day, but there are also
children's games, activities, refresh-
ments, entertainment and prizes, ln-
will receive water bottles donated by
The Bicycle Post Individuals raising
$100 or more will receive Human Race
T-shirts. Plus, there are package prizes
for the top collectors, including tick-
ets to amusement parks and vacations.
As if the gratification of prizes
weren't enough, the Hu-
man Race is a really excel-
Ilent opportunity to raise
money for a whole bunch
of good causes. Organiza-
tions such as the Ameri-
can Red Cross, the Boys
& Girls Clubs of Pitt
�" County, the Girl Scouts of
Coastal Carolina, the
Greenville Community Shelter, Hos-
pice of Tarheel, the Literacy Volun-
teers of America, the Little Willie Cen-
ter, Operation Sunshine, PICASO, the
Real Crisis Center and the United Way
of Pitt County have already signed up
to participate. You can raise money
for any of these organizations, or one
of the many others registered.
If you're a member of a non-
profit organization who would like
to use this as a fund-raiser, it's not
too late to register. The Volunteer
Center will be accepting participants
dividuals raising a minimum of $25 until March 15.
This project is unique in that it
helps almost the entire community
at once. Non-profit agencies receive
75 percent of the money they collect,
and the other 25 percent goes to the
Volunteer Center for future activities
The Volunteer Center handles mar-
keting, publicity and materials - and
the community provides the people.
What else is necessary for a success-
ful fund-raiser?
Your individual group can raise
money for the same charity, or for
several different ones. You can chal-
lenge your co-workers, team mem-
bers, siblings, teachers or other reg-
istered groups to see who can raise
the most money. But most impor-
tantly, you can have fun while giving
back to your community.
So now you're completely ex-
cited and ready to sign up. What
should you do? First call the Pitt Co.
Volunteer Action Center at 830-6271.
They'll give you all your registration
materials and answer any questions
you might have. The Human Race will
take place on March 23, 1996. Reg-
istration is from 9-11 a.m. Runners
begin at 9:45, walkers at 11. There
will also be fun and games for the
family all day long.
Tight pants make the hero
Kevin Chaisson
Senior Writer
For this particular edition of "TV
Whore I would like to do something
a little different and honor a single
actor. An actor who defines the very
idea of what a television star is and
should be. This guy never whined
about the grind of doing a weekly se-
ries. This guy never dissed his fellow
castmates for a lucrative movie deal
(or semi-lucrative, if you're David
Caruso). He stayed in the trenches and
put out good to semi-good work when-
ever possible. He even fronted a widely
successful ad campaign in a series of
commercials and print ads. I'm sure
that he is a familiar face and perhaps a
hero to you all, as he is to me.
No, it's not George Clooney!
No, not Sherman Hemsley!
That's right it's Robert Conrad!
Come on! You know Robert Conrad!
"The Wild, Wild West?" Ah, that's bet-
ter. Yeah, he was the guy that didn't
dress up in the costumes.
No he's not dead
It just so happens that it's Robert
Conrad's birthday tomorrow. He'll be
61 years old, and he's in amazing
shape. Maybe you caught him in his
last series, "High Sierra Search and
Rescue when it premiered last year.
No? Okay, here's the problem.
You've read about George Clooney
saying he's paid his dues for all of the
success he's had lately with nine dif-
ferent shows and failed pilots before
hitting "ER?" Clooney's got nothin' on
Conrad, who boasts leading roles in
12 TV shows (not counting pilots).
Most however, went the way of
the dodo, and have been forgotten until
"Nick at Night" decides to pick them
up. That is why I feel we should take
this time out and honor Bob Conrad
tor his body of work, because whatever
crap he may have done on TV, it's all
"Masterpiece Theatre" next to a show
like "Family Matters Let me hit on a
few of my particular faves.
Let's go back to 1959, a golden
age of TV, and look at Conrad's first
lead role, the very popular "Hawaiian
Eye Think "Magnum PI" did the
studly private eye with a bikini around
every corner idea first?
Negative - it was Bob Conrad! The
show also featured simple melodra-
matic plots, glamorous locals, comic-
relief sidekicks and enough "50s-style
T&A to open a Playboy club. Sound
like a familiar scenario?
Next for Conrad was the mythic
"The Wild, Wild West" which was es-
sentially someone at CBS saying, "Hey,
what would happen if we put James
Bond in the Old West and into some
scary-tight pants?"
I grew up on the re-run exploits
of the studly James T. West and his
brilliant inventormaster of disguise
partner, Artemus Gordon (Ross Mar-
tin). Conrad and Martin played U.S.
Secret Service agents under President
Grant who stopped maniacal super-vil-
lains from taking over this great land
of ours, including the always excellent
evil dwarven genius Dr. Miguelito Love-
As a child, I even went so far as to
tape a plastic butter knife to the end
of my cowboy boots to simulate that
cool boot-blade that Jim West sported.

Spring Break
Heather Zophy a y
Student Health .
Spring Break is such an excit- -�. xLLi- �
ing time. A week without classes ' n u
what else could you ask for? The break can
and does mean different things to different people,
Some look for the quickest and cheapest way to
leave the state (the "get away break"). Exotic loca-
tions such as Cancun, Florida or cruising the Carib-
bean are usually favorites, with the climate resem-
bling that of early summer.
Others look at the week-long break as the "catch
up break Individuals may see this week as an op-
portunity to finish papers, projects, etc while oth-
ers may see this week as an opportunity to work
and "catch up" on their financial status.
Still others see Spring Break as the "relaxing
break a time to get some R & R, maybe spend
some time at home with family andor friends -
just a chance to sit back and enjoy the time off.
Whatever your plans include over Spring Break,
keep in mind some of the following tips to help keep
yourself healthy:
1) Common sense in the sun. Know your skin
type. Wear the corresponding sunscreen. It is best
to apply the sunscreen at least one hour prior to
exposure and reapply after swimming or perspira-

Lou Reed is about as close as you
can get to being a rock legend without
being a household name.
In the '60s, when the Beatles were
smoking pot and dropping acid with the
Mahareeshi, Reed was developing a
heroin habit with Andy Warhol.
In the '70s, while Led Zeppelin was
busily burning out on sex and drugs
and playing arena gigs, Reed cut back
on the drugs a little and explored the
fledgling glam and punk scenes.
In the ,80swhile the punks either
went new wave or died of drug over-
doses and the popular music scene went
to seed. Reed dug in deeper and cut a
diverse array of albums in various styles
that nobody bought (including the bi-
zarre industrial-noise double album
Metal Machine Music, which is so dis-
sonant that it makes both Nine Inch
Nails and Sonic Youth sound like
In the '90s, while the rest of the
world slavishly worships the corpse of
all the stuff he rejected in the '70s, Reed
has settled into a compelling, sing-speak-
ing style that befits his position as
middle-aged alternative rock legend.
His latest foray into that territory
is Set the Twilight Reeling, an album
that sits stylistically alongside the re-
cent New York and Magic and Loss in
the Reed discography.
Packaged in an attractive midnight
blue case that looks featureless at first
glance, this album just begs to be picked
up off the rack. Peering closely at the

Pacino talks, but nobody listens
Ike Shibley
Senior Writer
Al Pacino has always been an ac-
tor that loves to make speeches. The
Academy Award he won for Scent of a
Woman honored his grandstanding
acting style. In the recent Heat, Pacino
seemed to give speeches to everyone
from his wife to Robert DeNiro's pro-
fessional burgiar character. Pacino's
newest film, City Hall, allows him to
play a politician, and hence, to give lots
of speeches. The part was practically
written for Pacino.
City Hall was co-written by Ken
Upper, former Deputy Mayor of New
York under Ed Koch, who seems to
know a bit about politics. The political
maneuverings in City Hall maintain a
constant tension. Every decision seems
important and every deal impinges on
two or three others.
Mayor John Pappas (Pacino) and
Deputy Mayor Kevin Calhoun (John
Cusack) swagger through the world of
New York politics with calm self-assur-
ance. Pappas always seems to have the
right timing and eloquence in any situ-
ation. Calhoun works non-stop to en-
sure that the governmental wheels of
New York City stay well-oiled. The two
of the them have the art of politics
mastered so well as to make their job
look easy.
An event in Brooklyn begins to
expose scratches in the seemingly un-
marred veneer of the mayor's office
when an innocent six-year-old is killed
by a criminal who should have been in
prison except for a too-lenient parole.
Calhoun is assigned the task of deter-
mining if any governmental foul play
was involved in the parole report As
Calhoun starts to look more closely,
the scratches on the mayor's door be-
gin to look like valleys
One of the main suspects for cor-
ruption is Frank Anselmo (Danny
Aiello) a country leader for the Demo-
cratic Party. Also implicated in the
scandal is Judge Walter Stem, the judge
that approved the parole sentence.
Though the swindle serves as the
thread that sews City Hall together,
the political dealings deserve more at-
tention. Unfortunately, the screenplay
veers in the other direction and focuses
on the Mafia and on Calhoun's search
for truth. Any time the film digresses

with sheer confidence. The band
played five original tunes, as they
would for a crowd of a thousand.
From the moment they took the
stage, they were given the utmost re-
spect from everyone that had their
eyes on them. Fleming McWilliams,
always aware of what the audience
wants to hear, collaborated with gui-
taristvocalist and husband, John
Painter. They lashed out into a groove
called "I'm Not Afraid a song that is
set to become the band's first single
and MTV video.
After the song had been played,
Fleming informed the audience that
the song will also be played on the
"Conan O'Brien Show" on Aoril 2nd.
Sure enough, that caught the ears of
everyone on Fifth Street. The band
continued to use the energy that ev-
eryone was feeling as they played
other songs off their soon to be re-
leased Delusions of Grandeur album
set to appear on the UniversalMCA
record label.
As the night wore on, the con-
stant struggle took its toll, as it does
on every band member, and it was
time for a final song. The band
couldn't have used a better tune to
leave us with. Using Led Zeppelin's
"Black Dog" as a segue to one of their
own tunes, they convinced us all that
even they can groove, with respect to
the legends of yesterday.
After they had left the stage and
their smoke had cleared, Fleming and
John decided to join the Greenville
scene for a couple of hours, and boy
did they love it!
After the show I had the chance
to chat with Fleming, and asked her
what she thought of the Greenville

into scenes involving the Mafia, City
Hall loses its urgency and becomes just
another cop movie.
Cusack gives his character as
much life as the limited script will al-
low. He captures the frustration of an
honest man caught in a dishonest scan-
dal. Completely unnecessary in the film
is Bridget Fonda, who incompetently
plays a competent lawyer. Pacino gives
great speeches, but the script does not
provide many scenes to see just how
Mayor Pappas accomplishes so much.
One scene evocative of what the
entire film could have been like in-
volves Pappas and Anselmo meeting
in the lobby during the Broadway play
Carousel. The intensity between the
two actors and the weight of every
word captured the tension of politics
better than any scenes involving a
chase or a gun.
City Hall could have been a truly
memorable film had it maintained its
focus. Though entertaining and. at a
few select times, engrossing, the film
relies on too many cliches to achieve
lasting success.
On a scale of one to 10, City Hall
rates a six.

CAA confusion solved
Music to our ears
A closer look at
teams wanting top
spot in Richmond
Brian Paiz
Senor Writer
Look for this weekend to be wide
open as the seventh annual Super
Hoops Colonial Athletic Association
Basketball Tournament takes place in
Richmond, Va. There has been a lot
of parity this season in the CAA, as
teams such as James Madison and
Richmond, who at one time ruled the
CAA, have fallen down the ranks.
Newcomer Virginia Common-
wealth showed why they were highly
touted when they came into the
league finishing with a 14-2 mark in
the CAA and gaining the number one
seed for the tournament 1995 CAA
Champion Old Dominion, continued
to be strong under second-year coach
Jeff Capel, finishing second just be-
hind VCU. But the CAA has been a
wide open race all season.
ECU beat the top three seeds
VCU, ODU and UNC-W, but was swept
by eighth seeded George Mason.
James Madison was beaten twice by
ninth seeded Richmond, but defeated
top seeded VCU. Confused? The CAA
Tournament is a toss-up. Here's a look
at this weekend's games:

mond 6 p.m. Friday
Welcome to the world of ex-
panded conferences! This season the
CAA has the pleasure of hosting a
play-in game on Friday night at the
Richmond Coliseum. Richmond upset
second ranked UNC-W in front of a
very noisy Spider crowd.
Richmond, under Coach Bill
Dooley, looked to have a promising
95-96 campaign, but early in January,
the Spiders lost two key performers
- Kevin Connor and Daryl Oliver.
Connor was dismissed from the
team for an off-the-court incident, and
Oliver didn't qualify academically. The
Spiders are led by Forward Jarod
Stevenson and Guard Carlos Cueto.
Stevenson ranks sixth in the league
in scoring (16.2) and sixth in field goal
percentage (53 percent). Cueto is a
guard that can make things happen .
He averages 4.9 assists per game and
is also very knowledgeable about the
game of basketball. He attended St
Anthony High School in New Jersey
home of another point guard, Bobby
George Mason is coming into the
tournament reeling. As of last Satur-
day, Mason had a chance to finish as
high as fifth in the CAA, but after
Monday night, the Patriots found
themselves a spot in the play-in game.
Coach Paul Westhead's go-to-guy is
Junior Guard Curtis McCants.
The Rhode Island native is aver-
aging 22.3 ppg and 8.1 apg. McCants
is a speedster and likes to get the ball
up court quickly. Also look for fresh-
man Jason Williams to contribute.
Pirate fans remember Williams as the
guy who broke the Williams Arena
three point record on his way to
scorching ECU for 37 points. If George
Mason should win this game they will
go on to face VCU at 12 p.m. on Sat-
(1) Virata Commonwealth vs.

VCU is definitely the class of the
CAA. Even if the Rams don't win the
conference tournament and receive an
automatic bid, they might have an
outside chance of an at-large birth
with a 21-8 regular season record.
Virginia Commonwealth came into the
CAA this season with Metro Confer-
ence players, who were used to play-
ing the likes of Louisville and Tulane
on a regular basis. The Rams ate led
by CAA player-of-the-year candidate
Bernard Hopkins. Hopkins is averag-
ing double figures in points and re-
bounds (16.3 ppg, 10.2 rpg). VCU has
two CAA losses this season by a total

Although the heat of March Madness and Basketball
playoff action still bums for many of ECU's finest intramu-
ral participants, many are already beginning preparations
for warmer weather, a trip to the outside and intramural
The captain's meeting for intramural softball will be
held on Tuesday, March 12 at 5 p.m. in the Biology Build-
ing, room 103. Unaffiliated players who do not have a team
are invited to attend this meeting for placement on a team.
This meeting kicks off the IM Sports calendar for the sec-
ond half of the spring semester. All teams must have at
least one representative present at the meeting in order to
guarantee a spot in the league.
Competition will be offered in a variety of skill divi-
sions designed to fit the needs and interests of any mem-
ber of the ECU community. Leagues will be available in
Men's Independent Gold, Purple and Blue; Fraternity Gold
and Purple; Men's Residence Hall; Women's Gold and
PurpleResidence Hall; Sorority and Co-Recreational.
Gold ieagues are established for participants who wish
to play at a higher level of skill while Purple leagues are
more recreational in nature. Blue leagues are intended for
fun (little skill required). League times will be available in
a variety of options with playing times ranging from 4
p.m. Monday through Thursday as well as Sunday.
The regular season will begin on Monday, March 18
and will be followed by a single elimination tournament in
each respective division. All games will be played at the
Ficklen Intramural Fields 14 adjacent to Dowdy-Ficklen
The rules of the Amateur Softball Association (ASA)
will govern all games. In addition to the regular season
and playoffs, this year will feature a preview event which
will allow teams to get a varied and competitive test with
several other teams in a unique format The Softball Pre-
view will be available to the first 48 teams to sign up on
registration day and will provide round-robin play on March
13,14, and 17.
While many teams are still being assembled, a num-
ber of rumors regarding consolidated powerhouses has
reached this office as several captains continue to jockey
for the top players. Donnie Peaks will lead the defending
All-Campus champions "Young Guns" and is said to have
added several new prominent members such as Russell
Duvall and Geoufrey Anderson.
However, Mike "Captain Caveman" Norwood boasts
that he has the team-to beat in the Gold division. Norwood
has gone to all comers of the campus and has offered big
bucks to several key free agents in an attempt to unseat
the champions. While many of these free agents are weigh-
ing their options and seeking top endorsement contracts,
there is much speculation regarding the final resting place
of ECU's top gun - Vu "The Crusher" Donie.
Donie is said to be asking for a nine-figure contract in

After an outstanding opening to
the '96 season at the Seahawk Base-
ball Challenge this past weekend, Gary
Overtoil's Pirates are looking to get back
to work on their three game tear.
Building on wins against the likes
of Charleston Southern as well as SEC
powerhouses Kentucky and 4 Tennes-

Left handed sophomore Jason
Anderson, who Coach Overton spoke
of, had a stellar freshman campaign reg-
istering a 54 record with 58 strike outs
and a 6.14 ERA. The pirates are expect-
ing to see Anderson take the mound

It's true that the Pirates will have

ing on their homecourt If you don't
think that is an advantage, just ask
any coach in the league.
(41 American vs. (5 East Caro-
lina 2:30 p.m. Saturday
Jan. 16th is a date that many Pi-
rate fans have kept in their thoughts
the past fev. weeks. That's when
American's Tim Fudd elbowed ECU's
Morris Grooms causing Grooms a col-
lapsed lung, a 10 day stay in the hos-
pital and causing ECU's fast start in
the CAA to fade away. Welcome to
round two. Grooms has recovered
from his injury and should be back to
almost 100 percent for the tourna-
ment The CAA handed Fudd a five
game suspension, and American went
on to finish 8-8 in league play.
American's lethal weapon punch
is Fudd and senior Guard Darryl
Franklin, who is definitely the dean
of CAA guards. Fudd came back from
a knee injury to average 16.1 ppg, and
Franklin was not far behind at 15.6
ppg. American probably has the best
defender in the CAA, Duane Gullium,
who lit up the Pirates with some fero-
cious slams last year in the tourna-
ment. Also look for Nathan Smith,
who has been nicknamed the
"Morgantown Rifle to look for the
three ball. He is shooting 39 percent
from behind the arc, and can turn a
game around quickly.
ECU has been on a downward
swing since the beginning of Febru-
ary. After starting at 7-2 in the CAA,
ECU dropped six of their last seven
conference games down the stretch.
The return of Grooms should help
some, but the Pirates have to find a
way to score. Point Guard Tony
Parham has been hampered by a hip
pointer most of the season, and Tim
Basham and Jonathan Kerner, who
were keys to ECU's early success, are
in scoring slumps. ECU lost both regu-
lar season matchups to the Eagles, but
beating a team three times in one sea-
son is difficult The Pirates will have
to find some scoring help to move on
to the second round.
(2) Old Dominion vs. (7) James
Madison 7 p.m. Saturday
Who ever thought that you would
see James Madison and Old Domin-
ion in the first round of CAA play?
These two teams have met for the
championship the past two years, but
it has been a totally different story this
season for Coach Lefty Drisell and his
There have been rumors all sea-
son that this could be Lefty's last sea-
son in Harrisonburg, and JMU could
have won an Oscar this season for
their part in Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.
The Dukes started off a horrid 1-10
in the CAA, but bounced back with
five straight conference wins to end
the season.
JMU's top gun is senior Guard
Darren McClinton. The Maryland na-
tive leads the conference in scoring
at 22.3 ppg, and in three pointers at
4.1pg. McClinton has been the Dukes
main threat all season, but look for
Charles Lott and Ryan Culicerto to
contribute. Lott is averaging 14.2 ppg,
while Culicerto had a career high 15
points in JMU's last regular season
game against American. Culicerto
scored the last nine Duke points to
help secure them a spot out of the
play-in game.
Old Dominion was in a win-lose
situation this season. After shocking
the college basketball world last sea-
son by beating Villanova in the first
round of the NCAA Tournament and
losing seniors Petey Sessoms and
Mike Jones, the Monarchs had a lot
of rebuilding to do. But don't feel
sorry for Coach Capel in Norfolk. He
returned 1993-94 CAA Player-of-the-
Year Odelle Hodge, after sitting out
last season with a torn ACL knee in-
jury, plus he added North Carolina
A&T transfer Joe Bunn, who lit up
eventual national champion Arkansas
for 20 points in 1994.
The key to the Monarchs' success
is Bunn. The Rocky Mount. N.C. na-
tive is averaging 15.8 ppg, and 7.5 rpg,
and he is very intense on the floor.
Bunn is the type of ball player that
every coach in America wants on his
Look for the ODU-JMU matchup
to be the best game of the opening
round. Any time these two teams get
together, there is always a lot of ex-
(3) UNC-WibninflPP vs, (6) Wil-
liam and Marv 9;30 p.m Saturday
Jerry Wainwright and his
Seahawks had to be looking forward
to conference play back in December.
UNC-W was 2-8 and had just played
road games against, Cincinnati, UNC-
Charlotte, Mississippi St, Manhattan
and at that time, number one ranked
UMass. So how did his troops re-
spond? Well, they won five of their
first six CAA games, and went on to
finish third in the conference.
Wainwright has been known
to say that the tough non-conference
slate his team faced in the early sea-
son would help them down the road.
Hopefully it will help them in the tour-
nament UNC-W is the type of team
that always seems to find themselves
in the upper bracket of the CAA with-
out getting any respect. They play a
slow dovn type offense, and lead the
CAA in scoring defense at holding
their opponents to just under 60
points a game. So why should UNC-
W be worried about William and
Mary? Well, just two weeks ago UNC-
W got hammered in Williamsburg 63-
The Tribe has the most un-
derrated big man in the league - 6'9"
David Cully. Cully has 54 blocks this
season which tops the CAA. Wake
Forest transfer Bobby Fitzgibbons, is
a three point threat for William and
Mary, and freshman Randy Bracy has
been a plus for Charlie Woolum's
squad all season.
This is a game that UNC-W
should win if they get some produc-
tion from Preston McGriff. However,
UNC-W knows how it is to exit in the
first round. Coach Wainwright and his
squad don't want a repeat of last sea
