"Our graduates will have many
options said Dr. Michael Rastatter,
chairman of the department of commu-

clinics or research labs This new pro-

eastern North Carolinians.
"Hopefully, some of our graduates
will stay in this area to fill the commu-
nication needs of the people Rastatter
said. "This state has a real need to build
up a supply of audiologists
The need for the program was rec-
ognized a decade ago by Dr. Gregg Giv-
ens, director of graduate studies at the
department of communication science
and disorders, and he tiled a request to
plan for it in the mid-1980s.
When Dr. Rastatter arrived as
chairman of the department in 1994,
he and Givens developed the program
it couldn't have happened with-
out the support of the chancellor, vice-

was ECU's Army ROTC cadets be-
ing shipped off to their field train-
ing exercises (FIX) for the weekend.
Members of the North Carolina
National Guard flew in on two UH-
60 Blackhawk helicopters to Belk
Field. Their mission was to ship
about 50 cadets and staff members
of the program to Camp Bonner,
located outside of Washington. The
helicopters landed at the field at
3p.m. and took off at 4p.m. Once
arriving there, the cadets went
through field training exercises.
The purpose of going through
these exercises was for the cadets
to gain experience so they will even-
tually be prepared if ever called on
to fight for the country. The cadets
went through a series of exercises

Healthy eating promoted on campus

March is National Nutrition Month and the campus eat-

healthy eating on campus.
Nutrition booths will be set up at Todd and Mendenhall
dining halls, the Wright Place and the Croatan from 11-2:30
p.m. the last two Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in
March. The booths will offer samples of such goodies as fat-
free brownies, veggie burgers, low-fat quesadillas and other
Student dietitians and the nutrition director of the cam-

swer questions.
"A university community is better informed in most fields
than the general population Hartung said, "but in one ba-
sic area - healthful eating - there's a real need for more
information and better practices
Hartung said her belief is based on observation of how
people at ECU eat in campus cafeterias and snack bars, as
well as a survey she conducted last year, using a sample of
1,001 students, faculty and staff members of both sexes. The

Students know trivia
"College students
are so focused on
what courses
they are taking
that they don't
often look above
their books"
� Sam Andrews, assistant
dean for student services
inUF's College of Education
CPS-More than half of
the students at the University
of Florida cannot name a
state bordering Kansas, and
students are more likely to
name a cast member of the
TV show "Friends" than they
are a Supreme Court jur.lice.
Those are the results of
a recent survey by the UF's
student newspaper, The In-
dependent Florida Alligator,
in which staff members
phoned 150 UF students at
random and quizzed them on
their general knowledge. To
many, the results weren't
that surprising.
Although they may eas-
ily pull As and Bs on exams,
many college students are not as smart as they like to think.
When it comes to testing their CQ, or culture quotient, even
college-educated Americans don't know a lot of basic world facts.
For example, a July 1988 poll by the Gallup and the National
Geographic Society announced that Americans 18 to 24 years
old ranked last among their peers of nine nations in their ability
to locate on a map places like France, Britain, Japan, Central
America and the Persian Gulf.
"College students are so focused on what courses they are
taking that they don't often look above their books Sam
Andrews, assistant dean for student services in UF's College of
Education, told The Alligator. "That's not negative. There are
many other things that can keep a student from watching the TV
news or reading a newspaper, like taking too many hours, or
having a job or a boyfriend or girlfriend
But if you wondered how your CQ measures up, a new
Princeton Review guidebook claims it can give you some answers.
"Culturescope: the Princeton Review guide to an Informed Mind
is 712 pages of trivia, ranging form architecture to religion, poli-
tics to war. And everything in between.
For instance, perhaps you've often wondered why aluminum
doesn't rust, or why only the female mosquitoes bite humans. Or
perhaps you've watched film credits and wondered what the terms
"best boy" and "gaffer" mean. Do you remember what we got
from the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, and who we got it from? And
just how similar are we-genetically-to Doogie. the spastic mon-
Michael Freedman. an author of "Culturescope said the
Princeton Review noticed "some surprising gaps in the knowledge
of our students" when doing education research a few years ago.
So to do more than ask why, the Princeton Review's head
honchos asked researchers to put all the stuff that students don't
know, or knew once but can't remember, into a book, Freedman

fourth for rural,

U.S News & World Report has
ranked the ECU School of Medicine
as one of the best medical schools
in the nation.
ECU placed 14th in the nation
for primary care and fourth in both
rural and family medicine.
U.S. News & World Report di
vided the nation's medical schools
into two categories: research which
included all 125 medical schools and
primary care.
Last year was the first year that
U.S News & World Report included
primary care in their ranking. ECU
ranked ninth on the 1995 list.
Thomas Fortner, director of the
medical center news and informa-
tion said that even though ECU'S
rank dropped, the scores that the
medical school received this year
were higher than last year.
"This shows we have a good
reputation among other institutions
based on the opinions that others
have of us Fortner said. "It is cer-
tainly nice to be noted in a national

records and other positive qualifi-
cations Irons said. "We do not only
look at their Medical College Admis-
sion Test (MCAT) score
Irons said because ECU's medi-
cal school accepts a lower MCAT
score compared with other schools,
about a one point difference, their
rank was 14th instead of a much
higher rank in primary care.

a strength. We feel good about this

Our View
Fewer women than men receive tenure on ECU campus, as reported
in the March 14 issue of TEC. But this information is not really new or
surprising, which is truly a shame.
What is even more shameful is the fact that after years of the libera-
tion movement, women in academia are still struggling for equal status
and fighting some of the same arguments that were posed against them in
times past
In the TEC article, Sherry Pemell, co-chair of the Committee on the
Status of Women and diiector of risk management said that in order for
someone to gain tenure he or she must be at a university for a certain
period of time - at ECU it is five years. During this time period, the
person must show a high level of research and hopefully, teaching ability.
Fair enough. Students want to have the best possible educators on
staff. That's why they are paying loads of money to attend the university.
And a proving period is greatly needed. A tenured person is basically on
staff for life, and it should be necessary to have persons at the university
with the skills to teach students and the commitment to stay with and
improve the university's academic offerings.
But Pernell also said that this was one of the factors contributing to
the lack of tenured women professors. She said, "It suggests the old-fash-
ioned ideas that women are not the bread-winners and are the 'trailing
spouse' - the idea that women must pick up and move wherever the
husband's job requires Pernell also said this is true for some women.
Okay, but what about the others? There are plenty of women out there
who may want tenureship, who are just as dedicated to the university,
who can stick it out for five years - what about them? Could they be
discouraged from applying because of the lack of others making it? Could
they start believing that the time period works against them and that it is
a barrier made to keep their numbers low?
Another reason the article stated for fewer women than men with
tenure is the additional family responsibilities that women have to handle.
As mentioned before, one of the major factors persons are judged on is
the quality of their research. Quality research takes time - a lot of time,
and when the whole responsibility of cooking, daycare and carpools falls
into the woman's hands, something has to give.
As a result we get the notice of the 'Superwoman She has to func-
tion as the dutiful housewife and mother at home and the diligent intel-
lectual at work. This could explain why women out-number men as lectur-
ers and instructors. A person is hired on a year-to-year basis. This way if
the woman has to follow her husband, the university has not lost a perma-
nent member, and if the woman thinks she can no longer handle the work
load she can easily end her contract with the semester.
Is there any way out? Is there any way that we can keep our five year
time period, which is needed to keep a high quality faculty and that we
can increase the number of women professors, who can diversify our learn-
ing experiences?
Granted, the moving issue deals with personal choice, so it certainly
is not the university's responsibility, but the university can do other things.
For instance, the university could increase the size of its full-service daycare
center to allow for more faculty children to be accepted (about 300 chil-
dren are on the waiting list) and could possibly establish a 'nightcare so

ting on the curb. There are ways
around it, but, the sheer joy that I
receive from seeing this again is
enough to marvel at the new sun
glasses and tans that fill the air with
a scent of summer.
Next there is the presence in the
mind of many to be anywhere rather
than in the classroom. School gets
that much harder when the sun is out
and our animalistic urge is to run free
into the wild blue yonder - whatever
yonder is.
I planned to go into other aspects
of summer but it seems that my mind
cannot budge from the soul train. Pic-

Censorship is good
To the Editor,
I am writing to you about an edi-
torial in the Feb. 27th East Carolin-
ian. Jennifer Coleman's opinion that
censoring the Internet is bad for
America is not true. True, America
is the land of the free and home of
the brave. All President Clinton
wants to do is stop offensive pornog-
raphy from being easily seen on the
Internet. To compare this to America
becoming too censorized is crazy.
Censorship has a negative connota-
tion and in this case is good. Anyone
could get on-line and see pornogra-
phy with no restrictions at all, but if
you wanted to get the same thing in
a store you have to be at least 18
years old. So what is all the complain-
ing about not being able to see this
crap anyway. 1 would sleep better at
night if I was a parent knowing my
kids could not get into this pornog-
raphy on my computer.
If anything, America is becom-
ing more and more decensorized.
Now a days you can see pornogra-
phy anywhere. Every television show
today has violence on it The plan of
the Internet being monitored for por-
nography is a good ideal, and is a
step in the right direction for better-
ing our society.
The Telecommunication Acts be-
ing signed is sic maybe the only
good thing that Bill Clinton has done
in his four years in office. If people
really want to see pornography this
will not stop them, but it will stop
kids who are messing around on their
parents computer from seeing it.

Hollywood has found a goldmine with
comedies that play on gay stereotypes

types aren't trying to increase

these stereotypes are trying to encour-

deals with a gay couple, Armand

runs a nightclub called the Birdcage,
and Albert, who dresses in drag and
sings nifty show tunes, is the feature

This happiness is threatened when

Being a music critic, every once
in a while a record comes across my
desk that makes me wonder why the
band bothered. Why did they bother
to waste their time and effort craft-
ing this piece of over-produced, lyri-
cally vapid pablum? Why did they
bother wasting my time by sending
me a copy? Can't they hear for them-
selves how bad this is?
Maybe I'm being unfair. I'm sure
this band has a big fanbase some-
where that would tell me I am. After
all, there is a long-standing tradition
in entertainment that proves if you
put out material with no redeeming
value, millions will flock to you. I'll
give you some solid examples (but I'll
try to keep it short since there are so
many I could name): Michael Bolton,
Yanni, Ace of Base, Garth Brooks,
Roxette, Hootie and the Blowfish, Van
Hagar, Alanis Morissette, Snoop
Doggy Dogg, the Eagles. Mariah
Carey, and of course the queen of all
media, Madonna. These acts are either
so safe that Pat Buchanan would let
his kids listen to them, or they inten-
tionally make controversy so that they
can better market themselves. And
now there is Jars of Clay.
Jars of Clay is� Jesus band, but
before anyone jumps to any conclu-
sions, that is not why they suck. There
are some good bands out there that
deal with Christianity as a theme.
Take U2, fdr example. Although 1 per-
sonally don't think The Joshua Tree
is their strongest album musically, it
does rank up there lyrically, and its
central theme is religion and spiritu-
ality. In fact, if you want to hear a
really good Jesus band, then check out
Face of Change from Winston-Salem,
NC. They Je just as overt about their
religious theme as Jars of Clay, yet
have a sense of song structure and
lyric that Jars of Clay can't even seem
to conceive.
Here's an example of how sopho-
moric and insipid Jars of Clay's lyrics
are (from "Love Song for a Savior"):
"In open fields of wild flowers, she
breathes the air and flies away She
thanks her Jesus for the daisies and
the roses in no simple language

Armed with a brand new record
contract complements of Mercury
Records, this quartet hailing from
Tempe, Arizona presents their first
full-length CD to the rest of the
world. When first listening to this
release, the vocal stylings' of
frontman Roger Clyne sound simi-
lar to those of Social Distortion.
The band's music isn't as gritty and
grimy as Distortion's, but the vo-
cals alone are very similar in pitch.
The band sounds impressive in
their first go 'round. East coast
roots rock fans should feel comfort-
able with the Refreshments. Dur-
ing the summer of 1994, the band
was given the opportunity to open
for April's Motel Room and Dead
H' t Workshop. They also com-
pleted their first EP, Wheelie, and
things started looking up for the
mid-western guys. Another high
point for the Refreshments prior to
the release of their current album,
Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big & Buzzy was
participating in U-Fest, sharing the
bill with a couple of other local acts
and national bands like the Meat
Puppets. They rounded things out
by doing an acoustic gig with the
The fourth cut on Fizzy,
Fuzzy, Big & Bouncy. "Mekong
is an impressive one indeed.
Throughout the CD, the guys flow
from song to song with their rootsy
meshing of electric and acoustic
guitar rhythms. But "Mekong" has
more of a reggae feel to it.

of your favorite Mexican restau-

The film's humor is chaotic in
nature, involving such antics as people
running from room to room in an at-
tempt to carry on disguises while ev-
ery aspect of a well-thought plan
quickly crumbles. While such humor
may grow tiresome after awhile, it still
does allows for some hilarious mo-
ment And all the chaos is puncttiated
with occasional political barbs that give
the film a little bit of an edge.
But there are problems with The
Birdcage, most notably the resolution.
The film addresses some significant
issues about family, politics and toler-
ance, but it skirts everything it Sets up
by resolving the story with a flashy
ending. While this is a comedy and not
a serious drama. I still felt a bit cheated
when the credits began rolling.
Nevertheless, the film as a whole
is enjoyable. The cast is solid, particu-
larly the three leads. Watching Will-
iams. Lane and the impeccable Hack-
man play off each other was simply a
pleasure. Also, the setting for the film
was intriguing. Nichols does a won-
derful job of surrounding his story
with a world filled with gorgeous
people who indulge in the party that
life can be.
The Birdcage isn't one of those
films that lingers with you long after
you've left the theater, but it does
serve its purpose of providing laughs.
And there's nothing wrong with that.
On a scale of one to 10, The Bird

You're being paranoid.
Shut up! It's like heroin, really.
The addiction starts slowly, and you

cut back, you find yourself craving
The problem is that even high-
quality, engaging video entertain-
ment leaves me feeling lazy and
tired. Given visuals, audio and
simple plot elements, bur brains
don't have to work on being imagi-
native to understand our entertain-
ment (like they do when we're, say,
reading) and just kind of shut down.
Most video puts the brain in re-
ceptive, rather than active, mode.
Effectively, TV is a thought
suppresser. TV is the mind-killer.
That's why I sometimes find
myself, after tuning in for some-
thing I like, watching an episode
of Full House or Who's the Boss
or any of a dozen other lousy
sitcoms. Rather than switching the
TV off, I sit there like a lethargic
slug and absorb something awful.
Something seductive.
I do pride myself on never hav-
ing seen more than five minutes of
that Urkle show, but even some-
thing that bad doesn't make me
shut the TV off. No, when Urkle
rears his ugly head, I start flipping
through channels in a desperate
search for something worth watch-

As I surf through our volumi-
nous cable line-up, realizing slowly
but surely that there's nothing on,
an unnamable sadness overtakes
me. Something coiled deep in my
gut tightens, and I want, need, must
have TV.
My head screams at me to cut
the damn set off. But still I sit
there, remote in hand, scanning
channels for entertainment like a
starved wolf stalking an elusive rab-
bit. Ten, 15, 20 minutes pass. I see
enough of seven different shows to
follow the plots of all of them.

Of course I go back. There's
good stuff on television, and I want
to give it a chance. I can't imagine

Simpsons or sci-fi as intelligent as
The X-Files or bravura filmmaking
as in-your-face as Homicide. Enter-
tainment, remember, is an art form,
and right now TV is offering better
art than'Hollywood seems willing
to give us on the big screen.
But only the most challenging
TV leaves me feeling energized and
excited. Why did John Lennon put
out so little music (and even less
good music) in the '70s? Because
he spent most of his time sitting
around the house channel-surfing.
Captivated by television, he sat and
stared, his guitar collecting dust.
Maybe, but the same thing hap-
pened to Elvis and look how he
ended up. Sitting around and
watching television all the time
sounds pretty good. It's better than
working, anyway. But it also sounds
kind of hollow.
Anyway, that's all I wanted to
say. I've gotta go now. My show's
coming on.

Sluggers win five in a row
Baseball team
strikes up winning
Dili Dillard
�Staff Writer
Make it five in a row for the East
Carolina baseball team. The Pirates last
week closed out a tough series with
the Rider Broncs by sweeping a double
header with the hit-happy club improv-
ing the Pirate's mark to 9-2.
Offensively, in the double header,
the Bucs were led by sophomore first
baseman Randy Rigsby with 5 RBI with
5 hits, not to mention one homer in
the first game.
"I was feeling good at the plate
and of �urse I had a lo. of support
from the defense and the rest of the
rne-up Rigsby said.
Rigsby had help offensively from
freshman Steve Salargo, who went 2-2
in game one with one RBI and Antaine
Jones who went 24 and had 3 RBI.
The offensive production along with a
solid pitching performance by senior
Bryan Smith (7 13 innings, 5 K's.)
and reliever John Payne who pitched
a perfect 1 23s innings, gave the Pi-
rates a 6-5 victory.
It wasn't just the young guns who
stood out for
Coach Gary
Overton's squad,
Co-captain Jason
Head went 24,2
RBI, and sent
one deep in the
second game
leading the Pi-
rates to a romp
in the second
game 11-2. After
a scoreless first
inning the Pi-
rates exploded,
scoring 11 in the
remaining six in-
nings off of 11
hits. It was junior Chad Newton who
took the mound in the romp, showing
the Broncs no mercy. Newton (2-1) al-
lowed only one earned run and regis-
tered four strikeouts to get victory and
the sweep of the three game series.
Overton's troops would get no rest
as it was the Bulldogs of ale who

John Stuper would

the mound to face
the Pirates. That's
right folks, the
pitcher is also the
leading hitter. Th-
ompson came into
the contest with the

batting average.
The Pirates
needed to silence
the Bulldog bats in
order to better their
chances in the con-

mound and Hewitt responded. Hewitt

Lacrosse is on the rise at ECU.
With a blend of many talented play-
ers, both young and seasoned vet-
erans, ECU has burst on the college
scene as one of the more dominant
club teams. The season is currently
in swing. It started at the beginning
of the semester and lasts until the
end. There is a fall season that is
referred to as "Fall Ball This is a
type of a preseason.
The lacrosse team has recently
returned from a tournament over
spring break in
Daytona Beach,
Fla. Despite not
having some of
their key players,
they managed a
second place finish
among a field of
teams that in-
cluded Illinois,
Florida and Texas
"Some of our
strong players were
unable to travel to
Dayton. Beach for
different reasons
player Greg Maestro said. "We had
a really strong showing down in
Daytona. I feel it opened some eyes.
We are definitely not a team that
can be taken lightly or looked past
After the nice showing in
Daytona, the team returned home
and played their two games this past
weekend. Saturday's match sent the
team to Old Dominion where they
were victorious in impressive fash-
ion, 13-2. Sunday brought the team
back to Greenville for a match up
with an old foe in William & Mary.
Once again the team rocked the
competition and sent William &
Mary home with a crushing 12-1
"We dominated both matches in
every aspect" Maestro said. "Though
1 was out with an injury, 1 enjoyed
watching our guys dismantle both
teams. I hope to be back soon, but it
is nice to see our team win whether
I am playing or cheering us on
Every team has key players and
the ECU lacrosse team is not an ex-
ception. The attackers include new-
comer Scott

erans Steve

Some key de-
fenders include
Longaro and

has gained already. But of course,

The 1996 Intramural Indoor Soccer season will
get underway today with a Captain's registration meet-
ing at 5:00 pm in Biology Building, Room 103.
Any individuals interested in rpstering a team
should plan on attending this meeting. .affiliated play-
ers who are seeking to join a team should also attempt
to attend in order to facilitate this process. Six players
are needed to form a team and leagues will be offered
on a variety of playing dates and times. Several divi-
sions of skills are available in order to accommodate
the diverse interests of all participants.
Divisions offered will include Fraternity Gold and
Purple, Men's Independent Gold and Purple, Sorority
and Women's Independent. Gold leagues are designed
for participants who have experience in competitive
play and wish to participate at a higher level of skill
while Purple leagues are more recreational in nature.
All teams will play a minimum of two games in
pool play prior to advancing to a single elimination tour-
nament within each division and all-campus finals. Regu-
lar season play will begin on Monday, March 25 and all
games will be held in Christenbury Gymnasium. The
rules of the National Federation of State High School
Associations will be in effect with indoor soccer modifi-
The game of indoor soccer is a fast-paced, action-
oriented game with extremely quick transitions from
offense to defense. The element of using the walls to
play the ball, defend the goal, and pass the ball add an
extra dimension of skill and strategy to the game.
Leading the charge among the top teams will be
defending all-campus gold outdoor champions, the
"Tappa Kegs" with Chris Nunn manning the nets as
goalkeeper. However, a host of challengers is expected
to make a statement when the game moves indoors.
Alex Edwards' "Biscuits" and "The Ruckus" were top
teams in the Fall and should be strong again.
Tony Gribble predicts big things from his "Belk
Hall" residence hall team while Christian "The Real Man"
Mew's future in intramurals remains in doubt due to
the lure of big money from several professional teams
in Europe that are courting his services.

This type of tournament atmosphere
brings out the best in everyone.

After a successful weekend in
Indianapolis, the Bulldogs (24-7) are
headed back to SEC country for the
next round. They'll meet Connecticut
(32-2) on Friday in Lexington, Ky
where Kentucky fans will surely back
their conference brethren. Cincinnati
(27-4) meets Georgia Tech (24-11) in
the regional's other game. The
Bearcats will also get support at Rupp
Arena, which is only about 60 miles
from the Bearcats' own campus.
Arkansas (20-12) is a surprising
member of this year's round of 16.
The Razorbacks won the national
championship in 1994 and were run-
ners-up to UCLA last year. But they
were in the Top 25 just twice this sea-
son, the last time on Nov. 27.
Now they get a shot at top-ranked
Massachusetts (33-1) in Atlanta. In
Thursday's other East semifinal,
Georgetown (28-7) plays Texas Tech
Georgia was runner-up to Ken-
tucky in the Eastern Division of the
SEC this season, but looked like a
champion in dispatching No. 1 seed
Purdue in the West Regional.
The Bulldogs, who start five se-
niors, lost only to Kentucky and Mis-
sissippi State in the last five weeks of
the regular season. Bulky center
Terrell Bell will have his hands full
against Syracuse's talented frontline
of John Wallace, Otis Hill and Todd
Burgan in the regional semifinals in
Bell had his best game of the sea-
son against Purdue, recording 15
points, seven blocks and eight re-
bounds in the 76-69 win.
"He's just starting to learn how
to play offensively, but defensively he's
as good as anyone said Georgia
Coach Tubby Smith.
Kansas (284) will play Arizona
(23-6) in the West's other semifinal
on Friday.
In Minneapolis, Kentucky (30-2)
will face a Utah team Thursday that
was forced to play most its first two
games without its star player. Van
Horn, a second-team AU-American,
didn't even attend the Utes' first-
round game with Canisius.
"I'm surprised we were able to
get to Minneapolis without him Utah
Coach Rick Majerus said.
Wake Forest (25-5) defeated
Texas to earn a game against Louis-
ville (22-11) in the other Midwest re
gional semifinal in Minneapolis de-
spite playing a flu-weakened Duncan.
Duncan was held to 13 points by
the Longhoms' swarming defense and
his own fatigue. But he played a team-
high 38 minutes and also had 11 re-
bounds as the Demon Deacons beat
the Longhoms 65-62.
"There were stretches where I
just wanted to sit down for a little
while and stop he said.
In Sunday's second-round play:
Georgetown defeated New Mexico 73-
62 and Texas Tech shocked North
Carolina 92-73 in the East; Cincinnati
beat Temple 7&65 and Geoigia Tech
defeated Boston College 103-89 in the
Southeast; Louisville stopped
Villanova 68-64 and Wake Forest beat
Texas 65-62; In the West Arizona took
Iowa 87-73 and Kansas routed Santa
Clara 76-51.
Texas Tech 92, North Carolina 73
Darvin Ham shattered a
backboard with a dunk in the first
half, and after a 26-minute delay to
clean up the glass the Red Raiders
reeled off 10 straight points and rolled
to their 23rd straight win.
North Carolina (21-11) failed to
reach the round of 16 for only the sec-
ond time in 16 years.
Georgetown 73, New Mexico 62
Allen Iverson shook off early foul
trouble and scored 19 of his 25 points
in the second half as the Hoyas ad-
vanced despite making just 13 of 31
free throws.
Cincinnati 78, Temple 65
Cincinnati solved Temple's
matchup zone for the fifth time in four
seasons to earn a trip to the round of
16. Damon Flint scored 22 points and
Darnell Burton made three 3-pointers
during a 19-2 run as the Bearcats (27-
4) opened a 15-point second-half lead.
Temple finished the season 20-13.
Georgia Tech 103, Boston Col-
lege 89
Stephon Marbury, the nation's
most heralded freshman, scored a sea-
son-high 29 points and dazzled the
Eagles with his dribbling and no-look
passes. He played all but the final 120,
adding nine assists, four steals and had
no turnovers. He made 10 of 12 shots,
including 6 of 7 3-pointers.
Louisville 68, Villanova 64
Deluan Wheat scored 17 of his 19
points in the second half and helped
slow down Wildcat AU-American Kerry

cats (26-7) finished their second
straight season disappointed.
Arizona 87, Iowa 73
Arizona made seven 3-pointers in
the first 14 12 minutes and outran
Iowa from the opening tip. Six of the
third-seeded Wildcats scored in double
figures, led by Ben Davis' 17 points.

Raef LaFrentz hit his first seven

ability lately, but today it felt good to
perform well and hopefully I'm back
into my groove Hewitt (1-0,4.50 ERA,
1 SV) said.
Hewitt was relieved by usual
starter Patrick Dunham allowing only
one hit and recording 4 strikeouts.
"Jeff pitched an excellent game
and I just went in and heated things
up a little bit to close things out
Dunham said.
As for Dan Thompson, he knew
he was in a pitchers duel being held
hitless throughout the game, but hold-
ing the Bucs to 2 runs. The Yale cap-
tain threw a complete game adding
seven strikeouts to his stat list

gram has a lot of tradition much like
East Carolina's, and we'd have to play

our best to win Dunham said. "We
knew Thompson was the man to stop,
coming in batting over .500, so we just
played hard defense and got the runs
when we needed it to get the win
The Pirates did get the runs when
they needed it to stay in command. The
Pirates drew first blood in the bottom
of the second inning when junior right
fielder Chris Glanz took a Thompson
pitch deep for a solo homer to give the
Pirates an early lead. The Bulldogs and
the Bucs would then trade scoreless
innings until the bottom of the sixth
inning when Antiane Jones came up
big with a solo shot of his own to give
the Pirates pitchers all they needed to
seal the 2-1 victory.
"In the past four games we have
faced outstanding hitting teams and
responded in victories and I'm proud
of our ball club for that said Overton.
"We have played East Carolina base-
ball, which is aggressive baseball along
with fine pitching performances
Aggressive indeed, the Pirates
winning their last five against proven
baseball programs.
"I feel this team has given well-
rounded performances Overton
added. "Not onry have the returning
starters produced with the perfor-
mance of Jason Head, Lamont
Edwards, and Randy Rigsby, but I'm
also pleased with the performance and
production of our freshman starters
and the contributions they've made.
Along with that we've had outstand-
ing pitching from Patrick Dunham,
Chad Newton, Bryan Smith, Jeff Hewitt
and John Payne. They are no doubt a
credit to the staff
The Pirates record now stands at
10-2 going into a two-game series with
powerhouse Georgia Southern at
Harrington field. The Eagles come in
widely respected around the country
as a top program year in and year out
Last season they went 36-24 finishing
second in the Southern Conference.
"We're ready to play this one be-
cause we know as a team this is an
opportunity to get national recogni-
tion Rigsby said.
The Pirates will tangle with Geor-
gia Southern, Wednesday night at
Harrington Field. The first pitch is set
for 7pm. The series with the Eagles
will close the following day still at
Harrington Field, game time is 3pm.
