to who will fill the position
is expected in April.

The long lines in Mendenhall
Student Center (MSC) two weeks ago
were not due to students needing to
take pictures for identification cards.
Hundreds of students and faculty
members showed up to give support
to a university employee's daughter.
On Feb. 28, a "Marrow-thon" was
held to benefit the 16-year-old daugh-
ter of Computing and Information
Systems (CIS) employee, Mariene
Anderson. Diagnosed with aplastic
anemia, Cornelia Anderson has been
waiting for a donor match so she can
receive a bone marrow transplant.
Pat Spain, Marlene's supervisor
at CIS, said over 750 people showed
up to be tissue-typed at the
Mendenhall screening.
"We had a far greater turnout
than the Red Cross had anticipated
Spain said. "We actually had to turn
some people away
Spain said two tubes of blood
were drawn from each person
screened in order to determine tis-
sue types. The results of the screen
ing should be put on the national reg-
ister within a week.
"If a match is found, the person
is called to see if he or she wishes to
follow through with actually donat-
ing the bone marrow Spain said.
"When a match is found for Cornelia,
the donor will not necessarily get to
meet with her before the procedure.
They will just be advised to report to
the nearest facility equipped to
handle bone marrow donations
Cornelia's doctors said there is
about a one to 20,000 chance that a
matching donor will be found. After
a match is found for Cornelia, the
chance that the transplant will be
successful is between 25 and 50 per-
Those numbers could cause a
person with less faith to lose hope,
but Mariene said the chance of find-
ing a donor for Cornelia is rising with
the number of potential donors

On Sunday, a concert was held
in Cornelia's honor, Mariene said. A
host of choirs performed.
Another screening will be held
on Sunday, April 21 in Ayden at Zion
Chapel Church.
"We had to turn away so many
people at the screening that was held
on campus, and people have been
asking when they would get the
chance to be tested Mariene said.

the students, faculty, and staff who
made the Feb. 28 screening a sue

whelmed by the response received.

What were your impressions during your re-

"I find Joyner Library to be just a terribly exciting building. The
architect for the building has delivered what I think is going to be a
very useful, very functional building, but one that is to essen-
tially present a lot of fun for people who use it in terms of the choice
of materials in the building and the way the building is laid out. It
also has some really elegant features that 1 think people will respond
to and will enjoy. I think it will be one of the nicest buildings on
campus when it is completed. In fact, the library and the student
recreation center, together, will represent two of the finest buildings

What is the university looking for in its search
for a new vice chancellor of academic affairs?
How would you rate the candidates?
"I think it would be premature of me to make any comments about
the candidates at this point. We had two candidates to campus and a
third arrives today (Mar. 6), so I certainly would reserve judgment
until such time as all candidates have been here and had a chance to
interact with the campus community. I think it is quite important
that as many people as possible get to meet them as possible so that
we can have a good collective judgment as to their qualifications and
appropriateness for this'position.
"What I am looking for, clearly, is someone who can continue to
lead this university in its quest for additional graduate programs, its
efforts to reach doctoral two status, and I am looking for someone
who will relate well, not only to administration, but to the faculty and
the staff of the university. Also, I am looking for someone with the
experience and the attributes that would allow us to move forward in
terms of our academic program development
How did you spend your spring break?

ent things to students than it does to administrators. But, typically, 1

as it would otherwise. In the main, I was here on campus throughout

Although Sweetheart's fine din-
ing restaurant is still facing closure
due to a lack of support, the restau-
rant will remain open for the remain-
der of the semester to try to rebuild
its popularity.
Frank J. Salamon, director of
University Dining Services, said he
is waiting to see how much
Sweetheart's support improves in
the last seven weeks of the semes-
"We'll reevaluate the situation
once the semester ends in May
Salamon said.
Salamon said there is no chance
of Sweetheart's closing before the
end of the semester.
Salamon said many suggestions
for improvement at Sweetheart's
have been brought to his attention.
Some of the most repeated sugges-
tions follow: adding "treat yourself
right lower fat options to the
menu; adding some more lower-
priced or value items to the menu;
offering more buffet-style options in
the restaurant; clarifying the park-
ing policy for the restaurant and
arranging a lunch-time shuttle from
main campus to Sweetheart's.
Salamon said he has requested
University Traffic Services to pro-
vide signs to distinguish parking for
Sweethearts from other campus
parking. He said that although he
hasn't yet received a response about
the traffic signs. University Traffic
Services has been very cooperative
in allowing non-campus customers
to eat at Sweethearts. He said the
main problem is a lack of support
by university customers.
"We've got parking available in
the lot immediately behind Todd
Dining Hall, accessible off of 14th
Street he said.
Before deciding whether or not
to finally close the restaurant,
Salamon said he wants to make sure
university students, faculty and staff
members know about and has the
opportunity to use Sweetheart's ser-
Salamon said the real explana-
tion for why Sweetheart's may have
to close is that with its lack of sup-
port, it is losing money.
"That's always the best reason
to close Salamon said.

CPS - The bitter battle over
affirmative-action polices on the
University of California's nine cam-
puses took yet another unexpected
twist when it appeared likely that
the state will let voters decide the
controversial issue in November.
Supporters of the California
Civil Rights initiative, which would
ban the use of race and gender pref-
erences in all state hiring proce-
dures, gathered far more than the
700,000 signatures needed to place
the measure on the fall ballot.
The announcement was made
Feb. 22, prompting about 600 stu-
dents t protest the measure at the
University of California at Los An-
geles. During the protest, students

Despite some reports of abuses,
most experiments are governed by
strict guidelines requiring researchers
to obtain informed consent after dis-
closing all possible risks and side ef-
fects. Most student participants said
they listen to the warnings, and are
choosy about which experiments they
volunteer to do.
For example, Brett Mattingly, a
doctoral student in nuclear engineer-
ing at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, once took a pass on an
experiment on protein absorption that
paid $300 but required three 24-hour
days with a tube down his throat

In one test that examined vitamin
K depletion, Mattingly spent five weeks

search center room while he attended
classes by day.
"For 35 days, 1 ate a white' diet
of chicken, cauliflower and rice and
similar meals, but not green veg-
etables he said. "The researchers also
took blood samples every other day.
and three times during the study they
measured my stomach acid through
spaghetti-like tubes I had to swallow
and keep down for an hour and 20
minutes at a time
The companion study on vitamin
K absorption found Mattingly spend-
ing six weeks eating a normal diet in-
cluding lots of green vegetables, a vi-
tamin K supplement and taking blood
draws every other day.
"I've done five or six tests in the

heads of clinical research to find out if

tein consumption and pays $420

After Marlene Springer left the
position in 1994, Yarbrough tempo-
rarily quit his job as a political sci-
ence professor to assume the role of
vice chancellor for academic affairs.
Yarbrough said he is eager to resume
his teaching position, even though he
enjoyed the experience.
"I've enjoyed working with Chan-
cellor Eakin and members of his staff
Yarbrough said.
According to Yarbrough, the av-
erage length of tenure of Vice Chan-
cellors for academic affairs nationwide
is 3 12 years. Springer remained in
the position for five years before as-
suming the presidency of the College
of Staten Island in New York.
The responsibilities of vice chan-
cellor for academic affairs include
budget and personnel decisions.
"The vice chancellor has ultimate
responsibility for the conduct of the
programs in the academic division and

There is no absolute deadline for
Chancellor Eakin to make a decision.

Swartout said another electronic
method of acquiring jobs that Career
Services is looking into is video
"This is different than a video-
tape Swartout said.
Video Conferencing is using cam-
eras and television screens to let a
student and his prospective employer
communicate in real time without
having to physi-
cally be at the
same location.

Action Productions, Inc. will be on
campus during the week of March 25-
29 to offer students the opportunity
to make a video resume.
A video resume is much better
than the traditional paper resume be-
cause it shows creativity and stands
out from a dull pile of standard re-
sumes, said Susan Newberry, pro-
ducer for LCA.
Newberry said students can in-
clude their credentials in a video re-
sume just as in the traditional format,
but with a video resume, personality
shines through as well.
"The employer can actually see
what you look like and is more apt to
remember you if he sees your face
and can get an idea of your personal-
ity Newberry said.
Newberry said students inter-
ested in making a video resume
should call LCA at

She said a video re-

Yet another
type of electronic
resume is now
made possible with
services offered by
The Internet
JobSite at http:
on the Internet.
Students and others now have the
ability to establish a multimedia re-
sume on the world-wide-web.
Posting a resume on The Internet
JobSite exposes talents to employers
all over the world, said Andrew Lee,
media coordinator of the website.
The Internet JobSite can be used
by prospective employees to post their
resumes, or by employers to search
for qualified workers, Lee said.
He said there are advantages to
placing job ads on the Internet JobSite
rather than in conventional newspa-
"It's not limited to, for example,
a newspaper that only has the listings
for that specific area, but it has em-
ployers from all over the world put-
ting their listings on it Lee said. "It's
not limited to any one area. You have
your choice of areas global"
Lee said that presently the site is
not actually on the Internet, but that
it will be back up within the next two
"We pulled it down from the
internet because we're giving it a
complete overhaul Lee said. "We
have a program right now to make it
extremely sophisticated, but at the
same time give it a very user friendly
Lee said that a new program-
ming language is being incorporated
into the website to make it more ac-
cessible and user friendly.
The price of a multimedia re-
sume depends on how sophisticated
the web page is, how many web pages
are in the resume and what other
extras such as audio or special effects
are requested, Lee said.
"There are so many different op-
tions that you have available to you,
it's hard to make a generalized price,
but we do take into consideration
that these are students on a student
budget Lee said. "We are well be-
low market price

Our View
No matter who
wins the
nomination, it's
still up to us to
put the right
man in office
There are still eight months until the Republicans
officially name their candidate for the 1996 Presidential
election. But with nearly 13 of the delegates needed
for the nomination, Senator Bob Dole leads the pack of
right wing candidates. He has jumped to the lead of his
competitors with several decisive primary victories in
the last couple of weeks. In fact, it's hard to turn on the
television or pick up a newspaper without already know-
ing this standing.
Pat Buchanan was following Dole very closely up un-
til two weeks ago, but both he and Steve Forbes seem to
become more long-shot contenders as the primary sea-
son rolls on. And Lamar (exclamation point) Alexander
becomes more of a less influential darkhorse candidate
as political crunch time approaches.
Some consider all the Republican candidates too con-
servative. Bob Dole can only be compared to Ronald
Reagan simply on the basis of age. Now Reagan is so
inflicted with Alzheimer's disease that he can't remem-
ber what he knew when he got out of office. Perhaps the
Republicans are looking for another grandfather figure
and World War II veteran to combat the youthful (at
least he was in 1992) image of our current President
When it comes to Steve Forbes, how are you going to
sell yourself to mainstream voters when you're one of
the richest men in the country? Granted you'll do ex-
actly what he's doing. Declare that sorry business prac-
tices are the reason for our economy being in its current
state of misery. If the government was run like a busi-
ness, we wouldn't be where we are right now. But when
the democrats pull a few pictures of Forbes' yachts or
mansions or flashy cars, it will be hard to convince middle
class voters that he's looking out for their best interests.
In 1992, a record number of 18-34 year olds voted.
Bill Clinton appealed to these voters. This year the same
group of voters can do the same thing if we're so in-
The goal is to find out what each candidate stands
for. Weigh his values and stances against your own. Then
register to vote. If you don't make yourself informed and
vote, there's no room to complain later down the road.

New site invites students
Students' money spent wisely
J1 It's almost time for us to move
JSnto our new recreation center. True,
Jit was supposed to be in use by now,
lactualry over a year ago. I went for a
'tour through it last week and let me
Ttell you, it will be worth the wait It
i has to be one of the best facilities
�that I have ever seen. It has so much
�to offer us that I can only scratch
the surface of all that is there.
r To begin with, as you enter into
�this colossal building that takes up
'�over a block, and you are standing
� right at the equipment check out No
'jnore waiting in a hot comer room
fin a basement to check out that
! equipment that you desperately need
'Jto go play Frisbee-golf or to play soft-
'Jball with.
After passing by the main desk,
you enter into the facility. Imagine
'walking into a gigantic structure with
'six basketball courts all in use with
scoreboards everywhere your eyes
jean roam. Above you are tons of
.people running along happily on the
! running track that overlooks the
! basketball courts. In the background
i you can see Visions of students build-
'ing up their bodies with the new
�weight and fitness equipment
As all these visions engulf your
! brain and excite you, a familiar aroma
Jentices your nose, you look around
Jand yet cannot place where you know
'�this smell from. You roam all over
'�and cannot find what you seek. You
�walk by the juice bar where thirsty
�patrons are refreshing their appe-
tites, but that is not the smell you
You walk past the three aerobic
!rooms and amidst all the sweat, you
realize that also is not the smell that
you seek. Finally, you stroll through
the new locker rooms and wind up
at the end of the rainbow. In this
case, the pot of gold is a massive
swimming pool that has to be as big
as the entire Christenbury Gym. As
far as your eyes can see, there are

There are
bathing students

hard stressful
day in class.
bathing students everywhere relax-
ing after a hard stressful day in class.
If laps aren't your thing, then per-
haps the relaxation area with the jets
will relieve that stress.
Yet, it's such a wonderful day
that being inside bothers you, even
though there is that wonderful pool.
Just as you think that you can't have
it your way, a ray of light catches you
eye and you turn to your side to see
a door that seems to lead to an illus-
trious place. As you walk to the door,
you can see that this place was meant
for you. You step outside onto the
patio that leads to the outdoor pool
that you had only dreamed of a few
moments earlier.
The only thing that could top
this would be if you could go on that
white-water trip you and your friends
have been trying to plan, yet you
don't have the equipment to do it
Wait, you can!
Looks like you have two choices.
The first being that you could allow
the Rec. Services department to take
you on one of the pre-planned trips
set up for your adventurous spirit,
or you can plan the adventure your-
self and rent the equipment from the
Recreational Outdoor Center (ROC).
In this room, there is more equip-
ment than you could imagine. If you
can't find the equipment you need
to go camping here, you aren't go-
ing to find it anywhere.
All this is too much to handle
at once, I know. Yet, there is more. I
have not even begun to talk about
all the racquetball courts or the out-
door center or the offices - there is
so much in there. As the laws of
physics will teach us, the logical re-
sult of trying to cram too much into
one building modified to meet the
purposes of the students is an ex-
plosion. In this case, an explosion
of student funds creating this new
Recreational Services was
crammed into the old Memorial Gym
that was never meant to meet the
purposes that it is currently used for.
As soon as Rec. Services moves over
to the new facility, Health Educa-
tion will completely take over
Christenbury Gym allowing them to
expand their department.
As you can see, for once in our
college career, the University has ac-
tually wisely spent some of the stu-
dent funds we entrust them to spend
for us. Can you believe that before
the turn of the century, we may ac-
tually be able to use these new fa-
I can't wait to go to this new
center. As soon as I stepped inside
this center, I knew that ECU had to
have one of the best recreational
centers in the country. It has the
competitive edge we need. This cen-
ter will draw in more students and
allow us to host more intramural
events than before.
I have to congratulate the uni-
versity in it's decision to build this
center. I know that I will use it as
often as I use the Christenbury 'i-
cilities. OK, I'll admit it, I don't use
the present facilities, but I will use
the new ones. With all that has been
put into it, how could I not use the
new center?
How would you like to order a
pizza topped with ants, kiwis, cereal,
chocolate chips and dog dookie? I
ordered this tasty pizza last night
How about a game of "Zit Hunt" or
"Piercing Mildred a game in which
the player puts rings, studs and scars
on the body of a cartoon character?
These are only a couple of the unor-
thodox activities being explored at

higher "web-ucation

students entertainment and informa-
tion throughout its site on the World

dent of Internet University, has de-
veloped a new twist on e-mail corre-
spondence on this web site. In the

I would not suggest giving out your
credit card over any on-line service,
unless you can be sure the service is

In the future, Internet University
is planning to open an "outlet store"
on-line selling discounted books,
hardware, software and CDs. A po-
litical forum is also in the works and
will discuss topics like abortion and
gun control. The forum will concen-
trate on issues that affect campus life
and it would host political candidates;
and student feedback.
I am completely amazed eacrf
day by the Internet and modem tech-
nology. Computers have become a
way of life for many of us. I sit back
and ponder what the computer rage
will be like when I have children. Will
our kids be riding the waves of the
Internet in preschool? In the not too
distant future, I believe almost every
aspect of our lives will be dictated j
by a computer monitor.

other group are leading the computer

toward technology that will leave

that I understand computers, some-
one comes along and changes the

PH Letters to the Editor
Saint drove out "snakes"
To the Editor,
Saint Patrick's Day commemo-
rates the driving of the "snakes" out
of Ireland. "Snake" can refer to a slith-
ering reptile, or a lying sneaky human.
Before Saint Patrick brought in the
Catholic religion, the Druid religion
reigned supreme. If someone did not
know any better, they may have told
people the Druid religion was full of
The Catholic religion offered
heaven in one life of worship. The
Druid religion taught Heaven could
be achieved after reincarnating back
to earth, numerous times, until a de-
gree of true knowledge was obtained
in your eternal mind which helps you
to be happier. Between incarnations,
we stay in the Astral plains, which is
at a higher unseen frequency and of
less dense matter. Heaven is beyond
the Astral plains. Nicer people get to
live in the better Astral plains.
The Catholic religion told people
you could be forgiven for bad deeds
by praying. The Druid religion held
you can make up for past wrongs, by
doing deeds and by helping those you
have hurt either now or in a future
life, or you may suffer sickness in fu-
ture life incarnations for hurting oth-
ers during your one eternal life.
The Druid religion used a tree to
explain God to people. We are the
acorns and young trees, and God is
the oldest, largest, wisest tree of us
all, from which we all sprouted. They
also taught that nature is a part of
Our being, our minds extend to na-
ture, and nature becomes a part of
our mind, and you can tune into and
mentally feel the beauty of nature.
With the help of the Roman army,
the Roman Catholic religion became
more popular and the truth and
knowledge of the Druid religion, and
the wise men who were called snakes,
left Ireland.
Truth is happiness,
Sue Saintmarie
Give social workers a hand
To the Editor,
March has been declared social
work month by the President of the
United States as well as our state
Governor. Professionally trained so-
cial workers work in numerous agen
cies in this county providing a wide
range of services. They work in com-
munity mental health facilities help-
ing individuals and families who are
experiencing emotional difficulties.
They work in the county Dept. of
Social Services to provide a wide
range of services to those who are
less fortunate. They work in the
county school system helping to en-
sure that students are able to learn
to the best of their ability when they
arrive at school. They work in the
local hospice assisting families who
are dealing with the loss of a loved
one and they work in local group
homes counseling troubled teens and
those with disabilities that may re-
quire them to live away from home.
Professionally trained social
workers have either a bachelor's de-
gree (BSW) a masters degree (MSW),
or a doctoral degree (PhD or DSW)
from a social work program from a
college or university. They have ac-
quired specific training and knowl-
edge that enables them to provide
exceptional assistance to a wide
range of individuals dealing with a
wide range of life and situations and
problems. Those who enter the so-
cial work profession do so not for the
power or money but because they
want to help individuals, families and
communities be the best they can be.
As the social workers in this
community celebrate their month,
please remember that this commu-
nity could not function nearly as well
as it does without the many services
that are provided by trained social

38 Special flames out
Southern rock
legends fill the
Attic with fans
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
The scene was reminiscent of
years gone by for the tenured rockers
of .38 Special. A smoky nightclub (the
Attic) and hundreds of cheering fans
(Greenville's finest) welcomed them to
the stage. Though the band has en-
dured several personnel changes over
its 20-year career, the two core mem-
bers of the band are the same.
Prior to the beginning of the
show, I tried to remember a few .38
Special songs aside from "Hold on
Loosely So I asked someone back-
stage. The band's bus driver, Kevin,
told me, "you'll recognize almost all
the songs they're going to perform
A look of confusion spread quickly
over my face, but I figured I'd just have
to take his word for it
The opening band, Plow, finished
playing about 9 p.m. and the lights
went down. It took all of about 15
minutes, then the overzealous crowd
started screaming for the headliners
to take the stage. But it would take a
while; .38 hadn't even come in the
building at this point All B J the D J
could do was try to appease the roar-
ing crowd by playing some old AC
DC tunes.
Suddenly, my old friend Kevin the
bus driver jumped up on the stage.
Kevin wore an old pair of tennis shoes,
a pair of gray Wilson gym shorts, a
black T-shirt and a light around his
forehead. (The light looked like one
you'd see on the brow of a coal miner.)
Hardly the attire of an M.C but the
perfect outfit for the fashion-minded
rock and roll bus driver
"Alright Greenville he an-
nounced from the depths of his lungs.
"They've come a long way to be with
you tonight please welcome .38 Spe-
cial Expecting the band to immedi-
ately follow this announcement the
crowd began to cheer. But there was
about a five-minute gap before the
band appeared.
The veteran rockers hit the stage
around 9:30 and they were ready for
business. All those years on the road
had certainly taken its toll on the
musicians but they hopped, skipped
and jumped across the stage like a
bunch of teenagers. The band opened
with "Fantasy Girl and this song in-
spired one modest young female in the
front row to jump up on the stage and
point to herself as the lead vocalist
sang the chorus of the tune.
.38 Special played on for 45 min-
utes, performing a variety of songs
from their musical repertoire includ-
ing crowd favorites like "So Caught
Up in You" and "Paradise Just as it
seemed the band was finishing their
first set the drummer broke out into
a solo. The stage lights went down
and all of a sudden he was playing
the drums with a pair of flaming drum
Southern rock fans were given a
treat when .38 Special played at the
Attic last Sunday night The concert
was but one of the shows in the WSFL
Listener Appreciation series. The next
concert in the series is with Brother
Cane in a couple of weeks. Hopefully
Brother Cane will have just as much
good fortune with the Greenville area
as .38 Special did. But they won't have
my friend Kevin to guide me through
the dangerous and uncharted waters
of southern rock.
I just hope I don't drown.

I've said it before, and I'll say it
again; some films serve simply for en-
tertainment purposes and some films
address certain issues in an attempt
to force one to think. Kids is the lat-
ter type.
This controversial film by Larry
Clark deals with our nation's youth
and their decadent lives of sex and
drugs, is now on video and is very
much worth its rental price. This in-
dependent feature caused an uproar
from many conservative groups who
felt that it was yet another example
of how American cinema and the arts
in general were simpk adding to the
toilet mentality and disdainful value
system that seems to be sweeping
across the youth culture.
While Kids is a repulsive slice of
life that is extremely difficult to watch
at times, it is by no means a promo-
tion for unruly behavior. Anyone who
cares to take the time to analyze and
think will acknowledge Clark's work
as something that addresses several
significant social issues. The media
popularized the film by focusing on
the teenage sex angle of the film (an
issue which Is indeed an important
element within the movie), but Kids
is packed with more than a bunch of
horny teenagers indulging in sexual

I was standing in a store a
couple of weeks ago, talking to
the guy working there, when
suddenly this beautiful woman
walked by the window. She
looked in, trying to figure out
what these two guys were do-
ing in there, I guess. I noticed
her and smiFed. She smiled
back, embarrassed, and turned
to walk away, narrowly missing
bonking herself in the head on
a nearby pole.
I was, and still am, en-
chanted by her. I had one of
those thoughts at the time,
those fleeting "I should do
this thoughts, and wished to
pursue her, to ask her to coffee
- anything - to see if this en-
chantment might last.
But I didn't.
Later, pondering this over
fat-free Fig Newtons and a Diet
Coke, I decided that this kind
of wimpy behavior had to stop.
I needed to become more con-
fident, gather self-esteem
around me like a warm blanket.
And I knew just how to do it.
I should explain something
first. Just recently, thanks to
the help and advice of some
friends, I have begun learning
to put my money where my
mouth is (in the form of high-
priced, fat-free foods) and climb,
huffing and puffing, into the
health and fitness bandwagon.
I refuse to use the "D" word,
referring to watching one's eat-
ing habits to lose excess weight.
I also refuse to use the "F"
word (meaning excess weight)
in reference to myself.
So here I am, first time in
my life, watching what I eat, ex-
ercising and, surprisingly, stick-
ing to it moreso than I did the
piano. One thing doubled me,
though. Why was I doing this?
What was my reason for such a
lifestyle change? But now I
This will give me confi-
dence and self-esteem.
Of course! Why didn't I
ever think of this before? It's
one of those painfully obvious
solutions, like using fat-free
Ranch dressing on sandwiches
in place of mayonnaise. Thin,
muscular me equals confident,
macho me!
No more will I bitch about
going clothes shopping, embar-
rassed to have to try on every-
thing in those funky-smelling
rooms for fear that it won't fit.

Small towns lure tourists
with little dose of history
North Carolina's beaches and moun-
tains historically draw most visitors
to the state but cities and towns in
between want a cut of the growing
tourism industry.
Without the attractions of
Wilmington and Asheville, small
towns are offering southern culture
and calling it "heritage tourism
D. Dale Badgett envisions a
time when tourists clog the streets
of Mount Airy and stop off at local
businesses to drop a pile of cash.
Badgett, the executive director
of the Greater Mount Airy Chamber
of Commerce, has spent $12,000 of
the chamber's money on ads to at-
tract tourists. Three years ago, the
chamber allocated $2,500 for adver-
Badgett's dream may have
seemed silly a few years ago, but
tourism patterns seem to have
changed. State and local tourism
officials say they have noticed an
increase in heritage tourism and
they figure that Mount Airy and
other small towns have a shot at
drawing tourism dollars.
Heritage tourists ramble
around an area and experience its
culture rather than focusing ust on
major attractions.
Because of its history in blue-
grass music, its ties to Andy Griffith
and his fictional TV town of
Mayberry, and its nearness to the
Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Airy
seems to fall right into what heri-
tage tourists want, Badgett told the
Winston-Salem Journal.
"We don't have the beach, and
we don't have the mountains
Badgett said. "Our biggest attribute
obviously is Mayberry. But people
don't come here expecting to see
Andy and Barney.
A lot of people grow up in small
towns, and they're coming back
home for that small-town feeling. We
live in a very fast-paced world, and I
think we live in an area where you

Communities in Davidson and
Rockingham counties have looked
into forming similar campaigns.
Many local officials say the ben-

easy cash for local merchants.
"Tourism is one of the cleanest
industries you're going to find
Badgett said. "Tourists come in and
leave only one thing: their money.

vices, they don't need a health de-
partment. It's almost pure revenue
Tourism brings in more money
than any industry in North Carolina
except manufacturing, the state De-

facturing hit a peak in North Caro

872,000 people statewide. That num-
ber had dropped to 858,900 by the
end of 1994, but jobs in service in-

drop, increasing from 563,000 in
1989 to 724,000 in 1994.

exploits. It's not Potky's '96.
Based on Harmony Kdrine's
screenplay, Kids focuses on a 15-year-
old boy named Telley (played too con-
vincingly by newcomer Lee
Fitzpatrick). Telley has a passion
which he turns into an art He takes
extreme pride and pleasure in deflow-
ering young virgin girls. It's what he
loves. He has no time or taste for any-
thing else. Being the first to have sex
with a girl makes him, according to
his view of life, a �
totally unforget-
table, unique man.
As he states to his
friend Casper, who
is not quite the la-
dies' man that
Telley is, "No one
can ever do that
again mmmmmmmmmmm
Telley is the epitome of a youth
who just doesn't care about anything.
He engages in unprotected sex with
no regard to his partner. If the girl
gets pregnant, that's her problem. He
has no job and has no desire to look
for one, despite the fact that his fam-
ily needs the extra income. He steals
money from his parents so he can buy
some pot for he and his friends. His
days consist of skateboarding, swim-
ming, drinking, smoking, fighting and,
oh yeah, sex.
While there are thin layers of plot
(which I won't reveal here) that thrust
the film in a certain direction, the bulk
of the movie is simply a day in the life
of Telley. The film opens on an unset-
tling note as Telley has sex with a 12-
year-old virgin girl (don't worry, the
i actors are all at least 18 - this is not
kiddie pom) and then turns into a grit-
tier, nastier version of Slacker.
Some critics wrote off Kids as
amateurish filmmaking. These are
probably the same critics who claim
that Keanu Reeves uses his lethargy
He takes extreme
pride and pleasure
in deflowering
young virgin girls.
to good effect Clark does wonders
with his on-location production and
gets professional performances from
a mostly inexperienced cast Justin
Pierce makes Casper out to be a time
bomb that is just waiting to explode
without being cliched. When Casper
refers to Telley as "a lucky bastard"
after Telley deflowers yet another vir-
gin, there lurks within his voice an
angered and confused jealousy.
Another standout performance is
turned in by
Chloe Sevigny,
who plays Jenny,
a girl who lost
her virginity to
Telley and now
must deal with
the conse-
quences. Jenny's
��"�"���B story is separate
from Telley's but intimately con-
nected, and Clark does a wonderful
job of juxtaposing the two. Despite
his limited budget and lack of profes-
sional talent Clark turns in a film that
deserves to be acknowledged as one
of the better films of 1995.
I will warn you that Kids is not
for everyone. The characters are ex-
tremely unlikable, the dialogue is
filled with rambling chatter, and the
story is not plot-driven. In many ways,
Kids is a postmodern concept where
meaning is meaningless and there is
no such thing as a neat resolution to
the problems presented.
Therein lies the beauty of this
film. I love a standard Hollywood film
where the hero wins in the end just
as much (if not more) than the next
person. Still, I desire an alternative
every now and then. I just wish I didn't
have to drive to Raleigh or wait a year
for a video release to have that crav-
ing satisfied.
On a scale of one to 10, Kids rates
a nine.

of Qawwali music, a spiritual and
devotional music practiced by the
Sufis, a part of the Muslim faith.
Although there are other Qawwals
(singeijs of Qawwali), Khan is con-
sidered by all to be the forerunner
of the tradition. In fact, he is so
loved by members of his faith that
they call him "Shahen-Shah-e-
Qawwali" which means "the Bright-
est Shining Star of Qawwali
Wayne Newton doesn't even get
praise that staggering in Las Vegas.
This comes as no surprise in
Pakistan, though, considering' the
legacy of Khan's ancestors. He is
just one of the most recent in a long
line of Qawwali singers that also in-
cludes his father, uncles and sev-
eral cousins. Khan's family has
been producing Qawwals for the
last 20 generations, which comes
to a little over 600 years. Even if
he had lived a long, full life, I doubt
Elvis could have reached that
So why is it only recently that
Khan has begun reaching a larger
audience in the United States?
Mostly it is the work of Peter
Gabriel and his Real World record
label, which is dedicated to bring-
ing music to western civilization
that would otherwise remain un-
heard here. Gabriel first collabo-
rated with Khan on his Last Temp-
tation of Christ soundtrack and has
since gone on the produce at least
six albums of Khan's music, the
most recent of which is Night Song.
This album finds Khan collabo-
rating for the second time with mu-
sician Michael Brook - their first
work together was on an album
called MusttMustt (also on the Real
World label). The album works out
like this: Brook lays out instrumen-
tal arrangements of "ethno-pop"
music (much like Gabriel's slower,
melodic stuff) where he plays gui-
tar, keyboards, bass and percussion,
then other musicians are invited to
join on different tracks, and over
this, Khan sings.
This is where the magic takes
place. Khan is able to adapt his mag-
nificent voice to any rhythm, any
beat, any instrument and then make
it his own. It's truly amazing to hear.
His voice is so powerful and mov-
ing that it instantly sweeps the lis-
tener up by its very melody. No west-
ern music can compare to it.
Qawwali is purported to be the
music of spiritual enlightenment;
just hearing it supposedly brings
you closer to Allah.
That divine quality is present on
this album, but having heard some
of Khan's native Qawwali music, I
would have to say that the original
version wins over this more modern
collaboration with Brook. However,
Night Song serves as a good intro-
duction to Khan's music for those
who may not want to jump right into
the traditional aspects of Qawwali.
Open your horizons a bit, give
Night Song a listen, and you might
just find yourself enlightened. If you
want to hear more after that then
look for some older releases by
Khan, like Shahen Shah, and expe-
rience his music in a truer form.

right places. Their combination of
Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker" and Elvis'
"Heartbreak Hotel for example, is
sheer genius.
Nothing on their latest release
could be considered genius, however;
The Fun Sessions sounds like the last
gasp of a dying band.
The problems with this album are
numerous. Though Tortelvis has re-
turned to the band (he didn't perform
on their third album), he isn't allowed
to cut loose. The best moments on the
first Dread Zeppelin album come from
Tortelvis' constant Elvis riffing and bi-
zarre ravings. When he reads from
Herman Melville's Moby Dick on Led
Zeppelin's "Moby Dick it's cross-refer-
encing magic. Here, he's just a funny-
sounding lead vocal.
Dread Zeppelin also suffers from
the loss of Ed Zeppelin, the Jamaican
reggae artist who founded the band.
Without Ed's driving creative force, a
lot of the energy has vanished from the
group's reggae arrangements.
Another problem stems from the
loss of Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones
as producer. Jones did some incredible,
mura-layeied production work with ste-
reo and echo effects that gave Dread
Zeppelin an almost avant-garde sound.
Without him, The Fun Sessions just
sounds like any other reggae album.
The final major flaw in The Fun
Sessions is in the choice of material.
There's not a single Led Zeppelin song
on this album. Instead they've opted to
cover "the classics a list of 10 classic
rock standards that includes stuff like
the Who's "Baba O'Riley Creedence
Clearwater Revival's "Born on the
Bayou" and (yes) Lynyrd Skynyrd's
That sounded like a pretty good
idea before I bought the album. But one
listen revealed the real problem with this
plan: none of these songs are as good
as the Zeppelin uaff. Yes, loathe as I
am to admit it in print, Led Zeppelin
was an incredibly good rock & roll band.
"Feel Like Making Love" is no "Heart-
breaker and no amount of reggae
parody is going to make up for that fact
They don't even take advantage of
the obvious parody potential in songs
like the Doors' "Light My Fire The only
remoteiy funny bit on the album comes
when they break into the Three Stooges
theme at the end of "Freebird While
that's the kind of on-target lampooning
I expected from this album, it's too little
too late.
So here's the deal. On The Fun
Sessions, Tortelvis plays it straight the
arrangements are flat the original ma-
terial is inferior and, worst of all, none
of it is even funny.
But on the plus side, 1 found the
reggae versions of these songs much
more entertaining than I've found the
originals since I outgrew zit cream.
Maybe that's something.

dreamed about. I could go back to
women that have turned me down
flat (even for free food) in the past,
show them the new and improved
me, and watch them say in unison:
"Wow! We never realized that you
had such buff potential! Forgive us
so bad. They simply prevent the
hassle of having to hold onto a re-
ceipt and drive your Levi's back to
the store. Buying clothes off the
rack that fit is more of a minor in-
convenience than a problem. I don't
currently go naked or look oarticu-
larly silly, so obviously I can find
clothes. And I like wearing my T-
shirts out; it's more comfortable.
That ad in the fitness magazine?
The more I thought about it, the
more it sickened me. It sickened me
because it appeals to the base need
that we all have to be loved and
twists it to sell a high-protein
milkshake. Those bastards that
wrote that copy should be subjected
to some sort of public humiliation,
like being forced to eat rice cakes
with no liquids to drink. These kinds
of ads have helped to warp women's
psyches for years now, as well as
their bodies, in the form of eating
Honestly, about those women
who turned me down in the past? If
they were suddenly interested in me
now that I had washboard abs and
could crack walnuts with my butt,
then to Hell with them. Who needs
to become involved with someone
who is that vapid and shallow?
As for my friends, well, they en-
joy my company whether my biceps
bulge or not. They don't seem to
mind rolling me out of Chinese res-
taurants after gorging on the buffet,
and they don't mind too much now
that I complain about what I can't
eat If anything, they kind of enjoy it
("Hey! Want some french fries?
They're sooooo good! Especially with
sour cream! Or real butter).
Sure, my building of confidence
can be helped by this "D just like
my friends can help, through emo-
tional support A buff me would prob-
ably be more confident, true, but that
would be the result of building the
mental with the physical. Don't look
to Weight Watchers or "Bodyshaping"
or GNC or some other form of wizard
for courage: the brunt of this exer-
cise falls on you, as it does on me.

summary broken
down into three
Amanda Ross
Sports Editor
Ah yes. It's that time of year
again. March Madness.
It's when teams vie for the
bragging rights to say they are the
best in their conference, and at-
tempt to make it into the Big Dance.
That's right The NCAA Tourna-
Going into the CAA Tourna-
ment ECU had hoped they would
get an automatic bid into the NCAA
by winning the conference tourna-
ment Without winning die cham-
pionship, ECU would have no hope
of playing anymore post season
Here is an overview of what
happened at the 1996 CAA Confer-
ence Tournament (At press time no
pictures from the tournament were
Friday, March 1, 6 pjn.
It was the number nine Spiders
versus the number eight Patriots
in a play-in game to determine who
would face the Rams of VCU the
next day in the quarterfinals.
GMU jumped out to a 0-3 start
when Curtis McCants nailed a three
less than a minute into the game.
Richmond's first score came when
Jarod Stevenson dished the ball off
tot Eric Poole who went in for the
layup and cut GMU's early lead from
three to one, 2-3.
GMU held onto the lead until
the 12:43 mark when Poole made
another shot and put the Spiders
ahead 19-18. The Patriots jumped
back and the two teams traded bas-
kets and leads until Richmond pulled
ahead with 8:19 left in the first half.
At that point the Spiders were up 26-
25 and never looked back.
At the half, Richmond led by six
points, 36-30. The leading scorer for
Richmond in the first half was
Jonathan Baker with nine points, all
from three point baskets, and Kenwan
Alford for GMU with 12 points.
GMU shot 43 percent in the first
half, but still saw themselves down at
the half.

our pace slowed down said GMU

After a strong game the night
before, the Spiders looked tired and
sluggish against the Rams. VCU
jumped out to an 11-0 lead with
Richmond not scoring until the
15:13 mark when Rick Edwards
made a layup to make the score 11-
The Spiders had trouble scor-
ing and bad shot selection hurt the
team. Turnovers spun the Spiders
into a sticky web with 14 in the
first half alone.
With 14:30 left in the first half
VCU Head Coach Sonny Smith put
all new players in for his starters,
as he usually does. The Rams sec-
ond string of players proved to be
just as lethal as the starters.

ahead by two, 3836.
The Patriots' next possession
would prove to be big as GMU tied
the ball game at 38 apiece after an-
other McCants score. But that is the
closest the Patriots would come.
The Spiders' biggest lead in the
second half was 21 points after a

VCU extended their lead in the

GAME 4 - 2 ODU vs. 7
Saturday March 7,7 pjn.
The evening session pitted two
tough teams against one another.
Just Eke ECU, JMU was trying to
avenge two regular season losses to
the Monarchs. However, their quest
for a win came up short
JMUs' Charles Lott made a
jumper for the Dukes and 23 sec-
onds later ODUs' Odell Hodge an-
swered with a jumper of his own.
After four lead changes in the first
four minutes of play, ODU pulled
ahead after a three pointer by Mike
Byers that gave toe Monarchs a 10-
8 advantage.
The Monarchs went on to build
a 10 point lead midway through the
first half after another jumper by
But the Dukes weren't ready to
give up yet and they battled back to
make it a one point ball game at the
half, with ODU stfll ahead 37-36.
Lefty Drieselis' Dukes shot 42
percent in the first half and 70 per-
cent from the line. Darren McLinton
scored 12 points in the first half and
Lott added nine.
Joe Bunn poured in 15 points and
grabbed four rebounds in the first half
and Hodge added eight points and four
boards of his own.
Bunn scored the first points in the
second half for ODU and McLinton
opened it up for JMU with a three
pointer. The Dukes hung in there and
took over the lead with 16:13 left in the
JMU built on their 41-44 lead and
with 14:14 left a jumper by Lott gave
the Dukes a 45-51 edge. But the Mon-
archs still had plenty of time left to re-
gain the lead, and that is exactly what
they did.
The score was tied 53-53 with 1034
remaining, but the Monarchs began to
slowly pull away and at one point were
ahead by eight points with 3-25 left in
the ball game.
The Dukes had one more trick left
up their sleeves when McLinton threw
up a desperation three pointer with sec-
onds remaining to attempt to tie the
ball game up. Luck just wasn't on their
side and the Monarchs were set to move
onto the semi's.

Despite being rained out last
Thursday and Friday, it was a busy
Spring Break for the ECU baseball
team. It was the Highlandersof

The Pirates opened the first'

Harrington field with a sweep 3-1 in
the first game and 3-5 in the later
game. It was sophomore Pitcher
Patrick Dunham that took the mound
for the Bucs in the first game against
the Highlanders, throwing a five hit
complete game. After Dunham
blanked the Highlanders in the open-
ing inning the Pirates jumped ahead
1-0 off of a sacrifice by Lamont
Edwards to send freshman Steve
Salargo to home. The Pirates were
finished however. Before the
sophomore Randy Rigsby walldnd
was later singled in by senior
Centerfielder Jason Head which gwe
ECU the early 2-0 advantage.
Despite the early lead and Tim
Flaherty's solo shot in the fourth, the
Bucs had their troubles hitting the
ball recording only three hits the en-
tire game, but it only took three hits
and three runs to take the first game

Rugby players tough it out
Will Sutton
Staff Writer
Head Coach Jeff Capel thought
his Monarchs might go into overtime
with McLinton's shot
"McLinton's last shot looked
good to me when it left his hands
Capel said.
McLinton scored 34 points, Lott
added 16 and Eugene Atkinson had
10 for the Dukes.
The Monarchs were led by Bunn
who poured in 33 points followed by
Hodge who added 19 of his own.
Bunn set a new CAA Tourna-
ment record by going 15-15 from the
free throw line. As a team ODU shot
81 percent from the line.
Driesell, who many have specu-
lated might retire after the season,
was in no way ashamed of his team.

Driesell said. "They played great and
they are just as good as ODU
Driesell would not give a final
word on whether that game was his

Rugby is a club sport that has be-
come very popular at ECU. Many young
men have become a part of the ECU
Rugby team that is known for its good,
tough physical play on the field. ECU
Rugby players are often seen on and off
campus with their trademark jackets that
feature a black base with gold letters.
Kendall Jones is one of the rook-
ies who hopes to make an immediate
impact on the field. He seems excited ��������
to have the opportunity to play with some of the guys
who have earned some quality recognition in their time
playing Rugby for ECU. Jones said that the semester
so far has been a blast.
"I have really had a good time so far playing with my
new teammates. Sure, it is tough initially fitting in, but I
feel I can contribute right away and help us get for upcom-
ing matches and tournaments that are also coming up
Jones plays winger for the ECU Rugby team. He said
that his major task is to comb the sideline as the last man
on it and try to score in the tri-zone. He states that most
players go by nickname on the field rather than original
"There are plenty of key positions on the field. Casey's
position is pack, Mike Myers is fullback and probably our
most notable is Culligan at scrumhalf. He is really good
"I have really had a
good time so far
playing with my
new teammates"
� Kendall Jones
There have been games against Cape Fear, Fort
Bragg and Duke Graduates club teams so far. Jones said
that victories were salvaged against Duke and Fort Bragg.
A tough loss to Cape Fear was the only setback.
The team has some important
upcoming games.
"We have a big tournament
as a matter of fact, this weekend in
Savannah, Ga Jones said. "This
is huge for us because it will help
build our reputation in the region
if we perform well and defeat other
well known teams from other
states. We have three games on Fri-
mmmmm�mm�mmm day and more on Sunday if we play
well and win. We will just play every game in Savannah
like we would normally want to: one game at a time
When they return from Savannah, the ECU Rugby
team will continue its weekly play. Games are played ev-
ery Saturday, home and awav. One game is played on "A"
side and one is played on "B" side. Games are very com-
petitive and very physical.
As far as the future for ECU Rugby goes, Jones is
extremely confident with the overall outlook. Many new
faces besides his own may add youthful spirit to the crop
of experienced veterans returning.
"We have a lot of really good rookies coming in this
semester and next who I feel will make a strong impact
on the overall picture. With the help and leadership of
the older guys and our new blend of youthful determina-
tion, the future for ECU Rugby looks very strong and
The ECU women's basketball team dropped a first round game to JMU in the
quarterfinals of the CAA Championship Tournament
The game, played in the ODU Field House, was the third match up between the
two schools, with JMU holding a 2-0 advantage over the Lady Pirates. The Lady
Dukes had previously beaten ECU 61-66 and 54-66 in the regular season.
ECU shot 47 percent in the first half from the field hitting 10 of 21 shots. JMU's
percentage was slightly higher with the Lady Dukes making 13 of 27 shots for a first
half total of 48 percent
The Lady Pirates made one of four foul shots from the line, while the Lady
Dukes shot percent from the line, sinking two of two shots.
ECU improved that free throw percentage in the second half upping their total to
84 percent However, ECU dropped their field goal percentage to 46 percent while
JMU upped their shooting percentage to 61.
Justine Allpress led the Lady Pirates with 19 points and seven rebounds. Danielle
Charlesworth and Laurie Ashenfelder contributed 10 points each, with four and five
rebounds respectively.
The Lady Pirates end their egular season with an 11-16 overall record. ECU

GAME 8 -1 VCU vs. 3
Monday. March 4. 7 p.m.
It had al! come down to this
night. Who would walk away the
winner of the CAA and proceed to
the Big Dance?
It was a hard fought battle to
the end. VCU made the first basket
and it was a three by Lee. McCrifl
sank a jumper for the Seahawks and
from there the battle began.
First the rams were up then the
Seahawks. then the Rams it see-
sawed back and forth like that dur-
ing the first half.
At one point the Rams were up
by seven after a Hopkins jumper,
and then at the end of the half UNC-
W was up by three after a jumper
by Franklin. The half time score was
26-23 in favor of the birds.
The numbers favored the
Seahawks in the first half. UNC-W

Stan Simmons poured in 11
points for UNC-W. while Moore
added six.
Lee led the Rams with five,
while Chappell and John Smith
added four apiece.
The second half was a thriller
for all. VCU started off quickly in
the first half and scored seven un-
answered points. The Rams were
ahead 26-3() and never looked back.
UNC-W cut the lead to one with
9:05 left in the game after a
Simmons three pointer made the
score 36-37.
The rams bounced back and led
by four going into the end of the
game but UNC-W tried one more time
and cut the lead to one after another
Simmons three pointer. With 20 sec-
onds left VCU still edged UNC-W 43-

an 18-7 lead. W & M cut the lead to
three points, 25-22 with 4:09 remain-
ing in the first half but UNC-W went on
a 10-3 run to end the half, 35-25.
Much of that was due in part to
tight defense said Head Coach Jerry
"Every night this team gives some
of the best defense in the nation Wain-
wright said.
Darren Moore scored nine in the
first half and Mark Byington, who was
perfect from the three point arc and free
throw line in the first half, scored eight
for the Seahawks.
Randy Bracy led W & M with eight
points, while Chris Home carried the
Tribe with five.
UNC-W kept building on their lead
and lead by as much as nine early on in
the second half. The Tribe battled back
and withthree minutes remaining the
Seahawks lead was cut to two, 52-50
after a Parker layup.
"Every time the game got close one
of their players would step up and hit a
three or a big bucket and we couldn't"
Head Coach Charlie Woollum said of
his Tribe.
That was the closest they would
come in attempting to overtake the lead,
but the Seahawks -won by an eight point
margin 63-55.
W & M shot 30 percent in the sec-
ond half while UNC-W shot 42 percent
The Tribe shot considerate better from
the three point arc shooting 70 percent
to the Seahawks 30 percent, but it
wasn't enough.
The semi's were set and the field
was now down to four teams vying for
the championship title.
GAME - 6 1 VCU vs. 5 ECU
Sunday, March 3, 3:30 p.m.
After both teams had a strong
showing in the quarterfinals, this was a
game that would prove to be exciting
for Pirate fans, until the second half
Neither team scored quickly, but
ECU exploded into a 10 point lead, 15-
5 with 14:48 remaining. Those points
came from free throws by Bryant and
Meadows, a three pointer by Basham,
two jumpers by Parham and a jumper
by Hamilton.
But that lead quickly diminished
when the Rams reeled off 12 unan-
swered points to give VCU the 15-17
Dooley knew VCU would not go
down without a fight
"When you get a good start in a
ball game you have to know that the
other team will get their runs and VCU
is too good of a team not to have those
runs Dooley said.
With 5:23 remaining in the first
half, Rippey nailed a three to get the
Pirates within one point but a George
Byrd layup put VCU ahead by three.
Two free throws by Parham once
again put ECU behind onry one point
Midway through the first half, shots
weren't falling for the Pirates and VCU's
defense seemed too much for the Pi-
rates to handle.
With 2:01 left before the half, the
Rams were ahead by 10 points but a
dunk and free throw by Kerner cut the
lead to seven. ECU had a chance to go
into the locker room down by five points
instead of seven, but two missed free
throws by Hamilton sent ECU into the
locker room with a seven point deficit
Basham and Parham scored six
points each with Meadows adding five
in the first half.
The Pirates shot 34 percent from
the field, 44 from three point land and
53 from the line. But seven turnovers,
compared to VCU's one hurt the Pirates.
Hopkins, Byrd and Peabody scored
sue in the first for the Rams.
Whatever hopes ECU had of win-
ning the game in the first half, were
quickly diminished in the second.
Both teams struggled with their
shots in the second half and ECU
couldn't seem to get the ball inside to
the big men.
"We won with defense and running
the floor Coach Smith said.
A made jumper by Basham did cut
the lead to five but that was as close as
the Pirates would come for the remain-
der of the game.
VCU built on the lead and with
12:40 left, a three pointer by Patrick
Lee put the Rams up 15 points, 3247.
ECU tried to battle back but a
tough VCU team, who was playing on
their home court, outlasted the frus-
trated players of ECU.
"They (VCU) are experienced, tal-
ented and good and we didn't answer
their run consistently and they an-
swered ours Dooley said.
The Pirates gave it their best shot
but they came up short and watched
their hopes of a conference title and an
automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament
slip away.
Basham led with 12 points, fol-
lowed by Meadows with 11 and Rippey
with 10. ECU had 19 turnovers in the
game and shot 44 percent for the game.
Hopkins scored 16, Lee finished
with 13 and Peabody added 12 in the
Rams' victory.
The loss dropped ECU to 17-11
overall and 99 in the CAA.
Smith thought this was a very good
Pirate team.
"They are just as good as us
Smith said.
GAME 7 - 2 ODU vs. 3
Sunday, March 3, 6 p.m.
The last semi was a surprise to
most. Ask anybody before the game
and they would have banked ODU
would come away with a victory. They
were wrong.
Just like ECU UNC-W built up a
sizable lead, but unlike the Pirates they
continued to build on that lead.
UNC-W led the whole first half and
eventually built a 20 point lead after
Lamont Franklin made a jump shot to
make the score 26-6 with 3:26 remain-
ing in the first half.
ODU didn't score double digits
until 2:26 reaming the half when EJ.
Sherod sank a jumper. The Monarchs
went into the locker room with a 27-
12 advantage.
ODU couldn't seem to make a shot
and not even the closest shots would
fall for them.
The Monarchs shot 25 percent in
the half from both the field and three
point range. The Seahawks shot 37
from the field and shot a lower 20 per-
cent from the three point arc.
The Seahawks' Donlon scored
eight in the first half with Franklin
adding six.
E J. Sherod led the Monarchs with
four points and Mark Poag added
ODU never got the spark in the
second half and the Seahawks kept
building on their lead.
"You don't come out to scoie
points, but to win games, and this team
does Coach Wainwright said.
The Monarchs came within 10
points when Duffy Samuels made a
free throw but that was the closest they
would come.
The Seahawks went on to down
the Monarchs by 20 points, 59-39.
Moore led the Seahawks with 15
points, Donlon added 14 and Franklin
had 10. UNC-W shot 35 percent for the
game but it was enough to beat the
Monarchs who shot a low 26 percent
for the game.
E.J. Sherod led ODU with 12
points. Bunn, who had scored 33
points the night before turned in only
nine points for the Monarchs.
The stage was set for the champi-
onship game. The Seahawks versus the
Rams, and only one could come out

Tuesday, March 12,1996
40 point lead.
When the final buzzer sounded,
the Rams had won the game 89-55
and showed why they are atop the
Bernard Hopkins, VCU's go-to-
guy all season, led the Rams with 15
points, while Peabody and Marlow
Talley each contributed 14 points and
Chappell had 13.
"We had five hard days of prac-
tice Hopkins said. "The intensity was
so high and tonight we just wanted
to play 40 minutes of defense. We
came and did that
Richmond did not have a single
player in double digits when all was
said and done. Stevenson came close
with nine, followed by Edwards with
eight and Cueto and Nick Patrick with
seven each.
VCU's defense produced 31 turn-
overs by Richmond. That is a figure
coach Dooley would have like to have
seen a lot smaller.
"The majority of our turnovers
were the product of their defense and
us not handling the pressure well
Dooley said. "They forced most of the
turnovers. Our guys have to get
tougher and stronger with the ball
With Richmond out, the Rams
would move on the next day to face
the winner of the AmericanECU
Saturday, March 2, 2:30 p.m.
With ECU dropping two regular
season games to the Eagles and los-
ing in the first round to AU in last
year's tournament; this was a long
awaited match up.
The Pirates won the tip off and a
jumper by Tony Parham gave ECU a
2-0 lead. American's only point until
the 18:03 mark, came from a free
throw by Thomas Treadwell. But from
19:21 to 18:49 ECU suffered four fouls
on three different players. Von Bryant
picked up the first foul and then
Jonathan Kerner added two of his own
followed by Parham.
The fouls didn't hinder the Pi-
rates who then went on to build a 17-
5 lead with 11:49 remaining in the
first half, after Deron Rippey pen-
etrated into the Eagle's defense and
made the lay up.
American looked frustrated and
upset with the early lead the Pirates
had built The Eagies couldn't hang
with a tough Pirate defense that didn't
allow merican to score from the
14:34 mark until the 9:18 mark.
During that dry spout for the
Eagles, ECU scored six points of their
own. Othello Meadows sank a three
pointer, Bryant tipped one in and also
made a free throw.
The once loud American crowd
was silenced by the rooting fans of
The Pirates looked as if they
couldn't do anything wrong. They
were crashing the boards, making
good shots and playing aggressive
The Eagles finally got past the
single digit mark with 6; 18 left when
Duan Gilliam laid the ball in.
ECU held their largest lead in the
first half, 19 points, after Tim Basham
made his signature jump shot. But the
lead going into the half was 14 points,
with the Pirates holding onto a 36-22
Basham paced the Pirates with
eight points in the first half, while
Meadows and Vic Hamilton added six
of their own.
The Pirates committed 11 team
fouls in the first half and Head Coach
Joe Dooley attributes that to the physi-
cal aspect of the match ups.
"It's tough because they trap and
we're bigger Dooley said. "Anytime
we play, it's going to be physical
Treadwell led the Eagles in scor-
ing with nine points, followed by Tim
Fudd who contributed eight American
shot .333 from the field, while ECU
shot .516.
The Eagles had trouble connect-
ing on three point shots in the first
half just making one of 12 shots from
the arc for a .083 mark. The Pirates
shot .333 form the arc and both teams
shot .500 from the free throw line.
ECU seemed to have trouble in
the second half with turnovers and
poor rebounding. Again fouls plagued
ECU. With 14:51 left Parham picked
up his fourth foul of the game.
Momentum seemed to go ECU's
way when the Eagles' Matthew Brown
fouled Rippey as he was going up to
the basket Rippey made the layup and
had the opportunity to make a three
point play. Rippey made the free throw
and ECU was again ahead 45-35.
Each team kept trading baskets
and a foul on Americans' Fudd proved
to be a double whammy. Fudd fouled
Rippey and couldn't keep his com-
ments to himself and was slapped with
a technical foul. Rippey shot the foul
shots for the first foul and missed them
Basham stepped up to shoot the
shots for the technical and sank them
both. ECU regained possession and just'
when it looked like ECU might pull
away, the Eagle's had bounced back
and cut the lead to four with 3:36 re-
maining in the game.
Dooley admits that was one of the
longest second halves he has ever ex-
"I'm 50 years old now Dooley
said. "I went from 30 to 50. It just
seemed like it would never end
But ECU wasn't going to give this
game away to the Eagies and ECU's
defense never allowed American to
score for the remainder of the game.
"The guys stayed with them and
kept their poise and really did a great
job Dooley said.
Down the stretch, free throws
helped the Pirates. Basham made four
, Grooms made three and Hamilton
added two to secure the Pirates first
win over American this season.
The Pirates avenged their earlier
losses and went on to a 76-60 win to
move ahead in the semi-finals.
Hamilton and Basham scored 16
points each while Meadows and
Grooms added 12. ECU made 23 of 27
foul shots in the second half for an 85
percent mark.
ECU out-rebounded American 42-
28. Grooms pulled down 10 rebounds,
while Basham and Bryant grabbed
seven each.
Game total percentages for ECU
were as follows: 49 percent from the
field, 30 percent from the three point
arc and 80 percent from the line. Ameri-
can shot 35,25 and 60 percent respec-
The players felt it was nice to get
over that hump and finally beat Ameri-
"We just wanted to come out there
and stick to the game plan and play
our own tempo Bryant said.
American's Head Coach Chris
Knoche gave much credit to a tough
ECU team.
"Obviously things didn't go the
way we wanted them to Knoche said.
"We didn't do a lot of the things we
wanted to do but the reason was East
Carolina. They deserved to win they
deserve to be moving on
The Pirates had less than 24 hours
to prepare for the Rams of VCU in
Sunday's semi's.
