Faculty Senate questions the BOG's decision.
Senate debates
lack of funding for
employee salaries
Construction on new Health
Sciences complex begins in May
Faculty members dissatisfied with university
employees' salaries may take their complaints to
state legislators.
Chair of the Faculty Senate Rick Niswander
said in Tuesday's meeting the UNC-system schools
who asked for about $300 in tuition increase were
let down March 19 when the Board of Governors
passed a smaller amount that doesn't include fund-
ing for SI'A salary increases.
The increase passed goes to help reduce class
size, increase the numbers of class sections offered,
hire more permanent faculty and ensure competi-
tiveness of faculty salaries.
Niswander said this is the first time the BOG
has micromanaged the tuition increase, and that
may or may not be a good thing.
"They restricted how the funds could be used
overruling what campuses wanted to do said
The Faculty Senate chair told the senate they
should talk to whatever legislators they knew and
give some thought to finding "ammunition
"The project wouldn't be like the SGA's 'Per-
sonal Stories said Niswander, but faculty needs
to collect something to give to legislators.
Niswander said faculty should think about
situations where a teacher left or rejected a job at
F.CU because of salary or benefit concerns.
Michael Lewis, vice chancellor for health sci-
ences, discussed development of a new section of
campus containing the School of Nursing, the
School of Allied Health Science and a Health Sci-
ence library.
The project, funded by a state-issued bond,
will occupy 3,000 square feet and have 950 park-
ing spaces. Construction is scheduled to begin in
May and finish in late Dec. 2005. Students and
faculty can occupy the buildings in the summer
of 2006.
The need for new buildings arose due to a record
enrollment in the School of Nursing.
Lewis said the school now has 101'h.I), students
and 145 students in the master's program.

an increasing concern on
college campuses, especially

University administrators
across the country are torn by
their desire to protect the pri-
vacy of their students, while at
the same time complying with
subpoenas legally requiring them
to turn over data about student's

Administrators are also faced
with the threat of lawsuits against
the universities themselves
which could result in enormous
fines of up to $250,000 per
downloaded item. This threat
arose with the recent passage
of the No Electronic Theft Act.

was awarded a prestigious fellowship.
ECU medical student
receives fellowship,
will travel to Africa
A third-year medical student from ECU
will spend more than three months this
summer following his dream while working in
the Gabon, Africa, hospital that humanitarian
and physician Albert Schweitzer established.
Ben Gilmer has been selected as North
Carolina's only Albert Schweitzer LambarGne
Fellowship recipient for 2004, and he is the
first from the Brody School of Medicine to be
selected. One University of Chicago, one Tufts
University, and two Harvard University medi-
cal students have also been chosen for this
year's fellowship.
Gilmer is only the second medical student
from North Carolina to be selected for the
barene Fellowship since its Inception in 1978.
Gilmer's excitement about the opportunity
can be seen on his face as he lights up describ-
ing the hospital in Larnbarene and the need
for health care for the people of Gabon. In
Gabon, 50 percent of the population is HIV-posi-
tive, and malaria is common.
"The Schweitzer fellows are indoctri-
nated into Schweitzer's philosophy - one
that embraces a reverence for life. It's a great
opportunity to learn medicine at the original
Schweitzer hospital where one must learn to
be dependent on their physical exam skills
rather than CT scans and other technology
available at U.S. medical centers said Gilmer.
The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship selects
four third-year medical students primarily
from New England and the New York area to
spend three months working as clinical fel-
lows at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital. Fellows
work as junior physicians, supervised by hospi-
tal medical staff, and are eligible for rotations
in pediatrics, medicine and surgery.
The Albert Schweitzer Hospital, situated
on the bank of the Ogooue River in a tropi-
cal rain forest in western Gabon, has served as
the primary health care source for the
surrounding region since Schweitzer founded it
in 1913.
Today, an international staff of Gabonese
and expatriate professionals provide skilled
care through more than 35,000 outpatient
visits and more than 6,000 hospltalizations
annually for patients from all parts of Gabon,
an independent republic with a population
of approximately 1.3 million.

Massachusetts' lawmakers give first approval
to gay marriage ban, civil union compromise
llMCmw Aln UiUL m i, � -��
BOSTON (AC) - With one
chapter closed in Massachusetts'
gay marriage debate, several new
ones now open, as gay couples
look ahead to what may be a
short-lived chance to tie the
Mini and lawmakers prepare for
crucial November elections.
I egislators approved a con-
stitutional amendment Monday
that would ban gay marriages
while legalizing civil unions.
If passed during the next two-
year legislative session, the
measure would go before voters
in November 2006.
Hie move comes even as the
nation's first state-sanctioned
gay marriages are scheduled to
begin in mid-May, as ordered by
,i November ruling of the state's
Supreme judicial Court.
Attention now turns to the
fall elections, when lawmakers
will have to defend their votes
mi the contentious social issue
and fend off attempts to change
the makeup of the legislature.
All 200 legislative seats are
up tor grabs in November, and
the amendment was approved
Monday with only four votes
to spare. It now becomes critical
for opponents of gay marriage to
ensure the re-election of their
allies this fall.
Within moments of the
historic vote, Gov. Mitt Romney
told reporters he would ask the
state's highest court to block
gay marriages until the amend-
ment process has run its lengthy

he said, "we will have created a
good deal of confusion during
the period in between - for the
couples involved, for our state,
for other states where couples
may have moved and for the
children of these families
But Attorney General Tom
Reilly, who represents the state
in court, said he would not seek
to delay the May 17 deadline on
Romney's behalf. Without court
action, Monday's decision will
not affect the deadline.
"It was very clear to me as
attorney general that the major-
ity of the Supreme Judicial Court
have made up their minds said
Reilly, considered a possible
Democratic candidate for gover-
nor in 2006.
"Do I agree with their

little joy in seeing a proposed

going to feel very ashamed of
what they've just done today

of the Massachusetts Gay and

But conservatives also

ing it blackmail to force citizens
to approve civi I unions as part of

Our View
who is inter-
viewed, the
tion still
controls what
is released to
the public.
The only member of the Bush administration's
security advisers who will be questioned by
the independent commission in the investiga-
tion the Sept. 11 attacks publicly, under oath
is security adviser Condoleezza Rice.
Why her and no other?
We think there should be more public inter-
views of persons with specific knowledge
about the events leading up to the terrorist
attacks and the events that followed.
The only way to fully understand whether the
Bush administration was negligent in han-
dling this situation is with complete insight to
the information they received, and therefore
all security advisers should be interviewed.
Rice isn't the only security adviser to the cur-
rent administration. Is information being with
held or construed because of this cut off?
Some say Bush's agreement to allow the
commission to interview Rice -after first
prohibiting it - is just a ploy to gain votes in
the upcoming election
In a recent article on the CNN Web site,
Bush said that "a president and his advisers,
including his adviser for national security
affairs, must be able to communicate freely
and privately without being compelled to
reveal those communications to the legisla-
tive branch"
If this is what Bush thinks, why allow only one
adviser to speak for all of the advisers?
By limiting who is interviewed, the administra-
tion still controls what information is released
to the public.
The questioning will be ineffective until all
advisers are allowed to speak.

In My Opinion
Ugly improvements
don't improve ECU
Campus developers
need aesthetics lessons
From the mountains to the
toast, North Carolina has some of
the most scenic views in the world.
A mixture of modern civilization
and ancient environment present
visitors and Inhabitants with end-
less permutations of beauty,
Which is why ECU'S campus,
overflowing with uninspiring, brick
buildings and herelt of significant
foliage, disappoints the eyes so.
It's understandable that a
university, as a perpetual work-in-
progress, should have some disconti-
nuities in design. ()ld buildings need
u)grades, entirely new buildingsare
built, more parking spaces must be
carved from diminishing property,
and somehow, the whole puzzle
to fit together
When creating a setting
Intended to serve as a habitat and
workspace, pragmatism shouldn't
always dictate outcome. Environ-
ment has a direct connection to
human well-being - to ignore
this principle is to welcome the
insanity accompanying sensory
I'reserving the landscape's inher-
ent qualities while accommodating
the population should be of concern
for university designers.i'ht'benefits
are real: A well-designed campus
gives its community pride and
attracts the respect of outsiders.
Hut at ECU, the scenic situation
looks dreadful and continues to
Illustrations of the much-antici-
pated West Knd Dining Hall predict
a sharp-COrnered, open-spaced caf-
eteria. Alone, the structure looks
However, situated nearly on
top of three residence halls anil the
edge of downtown, the finished
pnxluct promises to be an eyesore
In an area already overcrowded wiiii
discordant development
I used to make a Special detour
on my way downtown from the
Neighborhood -a few extra min-
utes was a reasonable exchange to
walk between comforting branches
and under large green leaves. You
ian'l walk this way anymore,
though. The path was sacrificed lor
the cafeteria's land needs.
Certain areas are oases from
the design desert, the mall offers
play space and criss-crossing
sidewalks leading to a historic
cupola; the lawn in front of
( otton, Fleming and Jarvis Halls
houses old trees and piush grass;
when functioning, the fountain in
front of Wright Place is soothing
and stately.
But the ground is being eaten
away by bulldozers, and we're
slowly being overrun with incon-
gruous industrial replacements.
Will we offer more of our area's
natural splendor for unrewarding
and out-of-place compromises?
College Hill, the newest resi-
dential development, screams of
Parking spaces dominate
the landscape topped with
nondescript dorms. From the
Hill's appearance, it looks as if
the college is set in the middle
of an urban metro rather than a
medium-sized southern city.
Since I'm not familiar with
Greenville before the establish-
ment of ECU, I don't know how
exactly the land it occupies once
appeared. And that's part of the
problem - part of a place's present
lies in its past, and how the past is
treated shapes that place's tuture.
These new developments are
an attempt to make our campus
look like a generic twenty-first
century college, not a specific
university in a specific city in
eastern North Carolina.
If there's nothing that can Ik
done to salvage what's already
been lost, the campus population
needs to learn how to balance
growth with preservation.
The improvement would le
like the warm weather we had
last week - making it easier to
walk to class or work and connect
to one another with an apprecia-
tive smile

How could this happen?
Don't airports have security
for this sort of thing? Are other
sectors of American Interest at
First of all, the answer to that
question is yes, and therein lies
the contradiction.
The very nature of the Ameri-
can character and the continent
on which we live endanger the
security of the United States,
and no Congressional decree or
outlandish federal spending plan
will change that.
The concept of effectively
patrolling the borders that the
continental United States shares

national border in the world) and
the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans
is financially and practically

the American public that

There is a finite level of
security which it is feasible to
maintain and beyond that the
benefits no longer justify the cost.
If a person desires entry unto the
United States with enough pas-
sion and dedicationhere they
Americans will just have to
learn to adjust to the reality that
being American and living in
America no longer fully insulate
us from the ugliness of the world.
We now trade our freedom for the
threat of terror.
My greatest fear, since that
pivotal day in Sept. 2001, has
been that of the suicide bomber.
Israel is a modern, Westernized,
post-industrial nation and has
thus far been unable to protect
itself from the constant threat
of dedicated individuals wearing
explosive belts.
I believe American suicide
bombings not to be a matter of if
only when. The infrastructure
of our highways, porous nature of
our borders and trusting nature
of our citizens make suicide
bombing an indefensible threat
and a threat that should be
prepared for.
Two weeks ago, in the span
of just over a half hour, 10
individual bombs detonated on
separate commuter trains all over
Madrid, Spain.
There had been little prepara-
tion for such a calculated attack
and over 190 people lost their
lives. Though not on the same
scale as Sept. 11, the bombings
were the worst in Spain's history
and demonstrate a willingness
on the part of international ter-
rorists to exploit the inherent
weakness of an national rail
While a Basque separat-
ist group is the prime suspect,
many connections are being
made to Osama bin l.aden's Al
Qaeda network.
Perhaps Spain is now paying
K 1 Jm

the price for supporting the
United States in the invasion
of Iraq.
The United States is no less
vulnerable. With over 40,000
miles of working rail lines and
millions of riders each day, there
is absolutely no way to protect
against an organized terrorist
attack, especially on inner city
metro lines.
While the possibility of
implementing some sort of
screening process for riders on
commuter rail lines is realistic,
such a process would bring
the New York or I.os Angeles
Subway systems to a grinding
Surely, you say, there must
be ways of ensuring our secu-
rity? Indeed, but such methods
would drastically impinge on
the freedoms and liberties
on which most Americans so
wholeheartedly insist.
The Army and Marine Corps
could be stationed along our
borders with Canada and Mexico
and the U.S Navy used to expel
illegal immigrant on the seas, but
that's not America.
The institutions of the
military in this country were
intended from day one not to be
used as an instrument for govern-
mental tyranny. Thus, we have
the Coast Guard and Dept. of
Border Patrol.
Unfortunately, the first steps
toward governmental annulment
of our Constitutional rights have
already been taken by Congress
with their overwhelming
approval of the Patriot Act in
The American public must
realize that our government
is fundamentally incapable
of providing us with complete
security, therefore the onus of
responsibility falls on to the
shoulders of the citizenry of

As the inhabitants of this
country and recipients of her

No amount of government

This is a fact which should be

There is no way around it.

Swimsuit season arrives
Latest fashions, flattering designs
for different body types
It's that time of year again - the sun is
out, beaches and pools are crowded and the
stores are filled with swimsuits. With so
many selections, it can be hard to choose
between the newest trends, but the vari-
ety can help you find the best suit for
your body type.
This year's newest styles include retro
flashbacks with rugged denim and cor-
duroy and utility accessories like belts,
straps and buckles. Look for military-
influenced camouflage prints for both
girls and guys. Bright colors and island
prints are also very popular from designers,
with large floral patterns and neon hues.
The 1940s starlet look is back, with
updated halters and hip riders in clean black-
and-white or red-and-white patterns.
"I love halter tops with boy shorts said Krystal
Ambrose, sophomore nursing major.
I'un checks, gingham prints, and polka dots give
these classic suits a new twist for summer 2004, adding
buttons and bows for extra detail.
A continued favorite is the tankini - a modest
version of the bikini that provides coverage for the
stomach area but allows more flexibility than a
one-piece. Tankinis come in a variety of styles
and patterns, and some companies have "mix
and match" swimsuits that provide a unique
look. These can also be great if you don't fit into
one particular size and need different sizes for
the top and bottom. Great variations include the
handkerchief or triangle top with a flap of mate-
rial for the stomach and lies for the back.
The bandeau top is still a popular choice for
people concerned about shoulder tan lines and
wanting the perfect look for strapless dresses. This
style is best for girls who don't need extra support
and aren't looking to be very active in the water.
Bandeau tops can be found in bikinis, tankinis and

ciated with grandmas, there are lots of updated

Terrific tips for applying self-tanning lotion
(KKT) � It's spring, and a
pasty woman's fancy turns to
thoughts of legs. Off with the
tights, on with the skirts and
sandals - but what do you
do about that winter-white
scary skin?
A little self-tanner seems like
the solution.
The market is swamped and
saturated with sunless tanners of
various price points and formulas.
Which to pick? Also, how do you
ensure you'll look bronzed, not
Having made endless errors
In the beginning, here are 10
tips from a (now) self-tan fan:
1. Hirst, get rid of the dead skin.
Use a product that gently scrubs,
and be sure to dry thoroughly after
2. Wear disposable gloves
when applying the tanner to
keep your palms and nails from
staining. I got mine at Home Depot
In the paint department.
3. Have an old robe or
towel on hand. You'll need to
wear something you don't care
about in the hour(s) the tanner is
4. Have a good friend on hand.
You'll need help with your back
and other hard-lo-reach areas.
5. Pay attention throughout
the process. Touch your face by
accident, and you've got two
weeks of explanations ahead
of you.
6. Lotions are easier to
work with than sprays because
you have a better Idea of
exactly where you're applying
the product.
7. Choose a product that
goes on with a hint of color so
you can see what you're doing.
H.llzabeth Arden's Quick-Spray
Oil-Free Self-Tanner went on
clear, and 1 clearly erred in
thinking I'd applied it evenly.
Read the product label care-
fully and be sure the formula
is tinted.
8. Use a quarter-sized dollop
or less to cover lower leg, and
the same amount for the
thigh. Use excess lotion to
cover the knee and foot. These
areas darken more easily, so
use tanner sparingly. When in
doubt, use less.
9. Use sparingly on insides
of arms and underarms. An
all-over, perfectly even tan will
give a Malibu Barbie plastic look.
10. More-expensive tanners
are not necessarily better than
those found in the grocery store.
Pretest your product on a portion
of your skin well before you take
it public. The two I liked best for
my skin were Neutrogena Instant
Bronze and Bain de Solell Radi-
ance H.ternelle, both about $10 at
the drugstore. One application will
last about I -2 weeks.
Save yourself a trip to the
tanning booth by purchasing
self-tanning products.

Without a doubt, Fantasia Barrino's performance of "I
Heard It Through the Grapevine" wim the award for the
best performance of the night. She took the song and made
it her own - exactly what a star should do.
On the other hand, John Stevens' performances get
worse every week. His version of "My Girl" was painfully
off-key. His cutesy 16-year old rat packer act is played out.
Although Stevens deserves to go home, expect Camille
Vclasco to be voted off this week - her chances are up.

For once, I don't feel a sudden, vile impulse to vote Jon
Peter Lewis out of the competition. 1 thought he turned in his
best performance of the season last night. Now we are really
starting to get into the best of the best, and with a Motown
theme, I really expected George Huff and Fantasia Barrino to
shine, and they certainly didn't let me down. Which makes
picking the bottom three easy this week: John Stevens, Ganiilc
Velasco and Diana DeGarmo periled In comparison the rest of
the competition, and this week, with a abysmal performance
of "My Girl the boring Stevens will go home.

competitors who always have the top performances � High
Point, NC's Fantasia Barrino, 16-year-old Diana DeGarmo,
New Orleans crooner George Huff and 25-year-old Galifornia

the Motown theme yielded poor renditions of popular songs
from Haiku, Maui native Camlte Velasco, 16-year-old John

Herrion worked through many up
vns this season. Baldwin-Tener got the Lady Pirates out of the gates quickly.
The ECU Board of Trustees
approved contract extensions
for men's basketball coach Kill
Herrion and women's basketball
coach Sharon Baldwin-Tener on
Friday, which will boost both's
association with ECU through
the 2007-08 season.
Herrlon'S contract was
extended one year through
April 1, 2008. Baldwin-Tener
received a two-year extension
through the same clay and her
annual salary was ln teased from
$90,000 to $100,000.
Herrion just completed his
litth season at ECU after taking
over the reins of the Pirate basket-
ball program prior to the 1999-
2000campaign, making him the
longest tenured coach here since
Charlie Harrison, who was the
coach for five years during the
mid 1980s.
During his five years at the
helm Of the men's basketball
program, Herrion has brought
a renewed sense of enthusiasm
and pride to ECU basketball.
Attendance at ECU home games
has increased by more than 1,300
fans per game since the year prior
to his arrival, while single-season
and single-game attendance
records have been shattered.
Last season, Herrion con-
tinued to mold his Pirates into
a Conference-USA contender.
I( U improved its league mark
by two games from the previous
season and finished 11th in the
fitth toughest basketball confer-
ence in the nation.
Herrion lias compiled a 61-
79 record In five seasons at F,CU.
During his 13 years as a collegiate
Head Coach, he has built a mark
of 228-150 (.603), ranking him
among the victorious active
coaches in the country.
Baldwin-Tener has reversed
the fortunes of the women's
basketball program in two short
years. ECU only won six games
the season prior to her arrival.
Under her direction, ECU has
increased its win total trom the
previous season each year. In
her first season, Baldwin-Tener
doubled the team's victories
from the year before and then
won an additional two games
this season.
She has guided the Lady
Pirates to the postseason con-
ference tournament each of the
past two years after they failed to
qualify the year before she took
over. During her two seasons, she
has compiled a 26-30 record at
ECU and has built a 95-57 record
in six years as a head coach.
Early NIT win predicts SET
success for Ga. Tech
Georgia Tech team members, including center Luke Schenscher(12), leap from the bench

Spring Fling 2004
played without a hitch
The women's club soccer team
failed to reach the semitinals at
last weekend's Spring Ding 2004.
The Lady Pirates lost two games
and won one but did not advance
in the tournament. Clemson won
the entire tournament which
included six teams. On Friday
night, the women lost a heart-
breaker to Florida, 1-0.
The women fought the Gators
evenly the entire match. However,
due to confusion among the ref-
erees, extra time was added to the
game. That extra time proved to be
costly as Florida netted a goal with
less than two minutes remaining
to spell defeat for F.CU.
Saturday proved to be a day f u II
of soccer as all the teams played
two games each. The women
started off with Clemson at 10a.m.
and played well in the first half.
The score was deadlocked at
intermission. The Tigers proved
to be too much as they scored on
a breakdown in the ECU defense.
Clemson would add two more
goals to make it .3-0 to hand ECU
its second loss of the tournament.
"We knew that Clemson had
lost their first morning game,
and we did not play our game
against them. They were able to
put them in the net and we were
not said Ashley Alcorn, fresh-
man midfielder.
In other Saturday action,
James Madison defeated Clemson
6-1. The University of Florida got
their second shutout when they
downed NC State 2-0. The College
of Charleston beat James Madi-
son 1-0 in a hard fought battle.
NC State continued to
struggle as they could not keep
up with Clemson. The Tigers
took the victory 3-0. In James
Madison's third game of the day,
the Dukes withheld a late Tiger
run to beat Clemson 2-1.
The ECU women played their
third game of the clay late Satur-
day afternoon against the College
of Charleston. ECU, sporting
more rest than the Cougars, who
played in back-to-back games,
used their advantage to wither
down their tired opponents.
The game was played evenly
after a 45-minute delay due to
a passing thunderstorm. After
play resumed, the Lady Pirates
took control as F.CU scored two
quick goals to surge ahead. The
Cougars scored on a late ensuing
penalty kick, but efforts failed as
the ECU women won 2-1.
"We ECU struggled in the
morning agaiast Clemson but came

ton and keep them out of the finals

Florida beat Clemson in an excit-
ing final game. The Gators tied
the game at one with 10 seconds
remaining in regulation. The
game went into penalty kicks
where the Gators prevailed 4-2
to take tournament honors.

ECU men's soccer opens 1-0-1
The ECU men's soccer team
opened their spring season this
past weekend at Methodist Col-
lege's Cup of Life Tournament.
In their first match, the Pirates
defeated Francis Marion 2-1 and
tied the defending US Pro League
Select National Champion Wilm-
ington Hammerheads 1-1.
Freshman Chris Mobley stole
a pass from Francis Marion and
struck a well-placed ball past the
goalkeeper to give the Pirates an
early 1-0 lead. It remained 1-
0 until shortly after halftime
when freshman Calvin Simon
split two defenders, then beat
another before slipping the ball
past a diving keeper to put ECU
up 2-0. Francis Marion was able
to pull a goal back in the closing
minutes for the 2-1 final.
"It was a good effort for our
first game of the spring said ECU
Head Men's Soccer Michael Benn.
"We had a game cancelled
before Spring llreak, so the boys
were excited and anxious to
play someone else. We were a bit
sloppy at times, but that is to be
expected our first time out. We
certainly deserved the result
In the second match, the
Pirates took on the Hammer-
heads for the. second year in a
row. Last spring, the Hammer-
heads defeated the Pirates 4-2.
The score was 0-0 until senior
Perron Amos headed home a
service from fellow senior Reed
Avren with IS minutes to go in
the match. Wilmington was able
to knot the score at 1-1 with just
five minutes remaining.
"I thought we played an out-
standing gameagainst a very good
professional team Benn said.
"We were a bit unlucky not
to come away with the win. Our
commitment to getting pressure
to the ball was outstanding.
It was easily one of our finest
defensive performances in my
time here at ECU. We should
take a lot of confidence from
this performance
"We had a lot of very strong
efforts from our boys. I'm encour-
aged that we were able to score first
in each match. That is something
that 1 think we learned was impor-
tant from the fall Benn said.
"Playing two matches in one
day is difficult but we responded
well to the challenge. There are
some things we still need to
work on, but the coaching staff is
very happy with our performance

Goestenkors building dynasty
(KRT) � Iciss Tillis from
Duke's women's team ran into
J.J. Redick from the men's squad
a few weeks ago.
Mulling over their respective
NCAA tournaments, the two had
the following exchange:
Tillis: "Oh my God, what
would this campus be like if we
both won the national champi-
Redkk: "They'd shut down
classes for a week. We'd cel-
ebrate first, and then you guys
would come home and they'd be
celebrating again
Tillis: "All right
Everyone is familiar with
Duke's men. The success of the
women's program began 12
years ago, when a woman with �
a name almost as unpronounce- '
able as that of men's coach Mike
Krzywwski looked at the dynasty
he had built and started copying.
"When I came here, I
felt like you could see how
successful our men's program
was, and I thought, 'Why can't
we do the same thing?" said Gail
"So I think success breeds
success, and we see the men
every day and how they prac-
tice and how hard they work
and what their expectations
are. And we have those same
expectations. And I don't know
why you wouldn't
Goestenkors (pronounced
Guest-en-coors) now counters
Coach K with Coach G. Her team
went into Tuesday's NCAA Mid-
east Regional finals in Norfolk's
led Constant Center looking for
its first national championship,
the next step in her program-
building effort. The Blue Devils
will faced seventh-seeded Min-
nesota with a trip to the Final
Four on the line.
In 1992, Goestenkors became
the third coach in Duke women's
basketball history, which dated
to 1975 and included one NCAA
tournament appearance.
After going 12-15 and 16-11
in her first two years, Goes-
tenkors' team is on Its 10th
consecutive trip to the NCAA
tournament. The Blue Devils
have reached the Final Four in
three of the last five years, and
they're a No. 1 seed for the fourth
consecutive season.
The more her teams win,
the more top high school play-
ers want to play for her.
Ten of Duke's 13 players were
high school Ail-Americans. For
all of their individual exploits,
Duke's Iciss Tillis, left, and Alana Beard celebrate their win
Goestenkors recruits players
who understand the team con-
"The key for us is to recruit
players that are not selfish
Goestenkors said.
"If they focus more on
their individual goals, then
they're not going to be happy
here and then they leave.
"So I think we've been
very fortunate to find a group
that meshes together, that
understands our common
goal is to win the national
championship. And they may
not score as many points as they
would like or get as many min-
utes, but they can accomplish
their ultimate goal, which is a
national championship.
"We talk about roles quite
a bit and how important every-
body's role is to the success of
the team
She also has worked on physi-
cal and mental toughness.
Tired of watching University
of North Carolina teams pummel
her players all over the court,
Goestenkors enlisted some help
10 years ago.
She brought in male practice
"Probably that first year we
got beat every time we scrim-
maged the guys Goestenkors
"But we got better. And we
just progressed from there. And
now they'll beat us on occasion,
but for the most part we will not
let them beat us. And It's made
us so much tougher meritally and
"And 1 think to be success-
ful at this level, you need that,
because the very best teams
all practice against guys and it
shows in the big games
Goestenkors relishes NCAA
tournament time, and she
remains consistently friendly
and down-to-earth, even as the
pressure mounts.
Rather than breaking down
video 24 hours a day, seven days
a week, she takes time to go out
for a post game meal with her
husband and coaching staff or to
thank the team's many fans.
"It's really exciting. It's also
more stressful because you're
constantly watching film and
looking at potential future oppo-
nents Goestenkors said.
"You've got to keep your
sights on the here and now,
but you want to prepare for the
potential future
Duke has reached seven con-
secutive Sweet 16s, losing in the
national championship game in
1999 and the semifinals the past
two seasons. A veteran group
leads the campaign for a first
national title.
"We've been to the Final Four
two years, and if that doesn't
bring hunger, I don't know that
there's anything I can say said
three-time ACC Player of the
Year Alana Beard, explaining
why she had no fiery pre-game
words last weekend.
Goestenkors points out
that five consecutive ACC
championships shouldn't be
forgotten. Her three seniors are
making the final NCAA run
of their careers with urgency,
but she cautions against for-
getting everything that's
been accomplished.
