Hamilton reaches 1,000
mark in Huskie victory

H "
*for Herd
The Parthenon
HUNTINGTON, WV - If some
West Virginia state leaders have their
way, it will "have to" happen again.
Cabell County Delegates Jody Smirl,
Susan Hubbard, Arley Johnson, Mark
Underwood. Margarette Leach and Evan
Jenkins introduced a bill in the West
irginia Legislature this past Thursday
that would require the Herd and the
Mountaineers to meet on the gridiron
every year starting in 1999.
Marshall president J. Wade Gilley said
heis enthusiastic about the legislation.
"I think we'd be interested in playing
them," he said. "We've made several
offers to West Virginia, and this might
be the only way they will accept."
The bill stipulates that each university
ould be required to give students dis-
counted tickets.
The game would be played in
Morgantown until Marshall could add
more seating, and the game site would
then be rotated between the two schools.
But West Virginia would have to allot 30
percent of its seats for Herd fans for
games in Morgantown.
Gilley said that because the game
generated- such interest and financial
vindfall, it would be a good idea for
'bothy schools to consider.
West Virginia cleared $700,000 after
the. game, while Marshall made
$300,000, Gilley said.
"It's not a big ambition of mine to
play West Virginia," he said. "I just think
everyone is extremely excited about see-
ing us play."
Marshall Athletic Director Lance
West and Mountaineer football coach
1 on Nehlen both said they were not
aware of the proposed bill last Thursday
evening, but Nehlen said it would be
"impossible for the two schools to play."
Scheduling information for both
schools shows each is committed to I 1
games for 1998.
"Our schedule is full until 2004, and
it's just not good policy to break con-
tracts," Nehlen said.
When West arrived at Marshall in
*996, he said the contract was a one-
game deal, which Gilley has confirmed.
Delegates hope everything will be
final by Feb. 18, designated "Marshall
Day" in the State Legislature.
The football team will meet members
of the Legislature and have lunch with
the governor.

HARTFORD (AP)-- Reaching a milestone was
easier than Richard Hamilton had imagined.
Hamilton scored 29 points and passed the 1,000-
point mark in his career last night as No. 7
Connecticut defeated Big East rival Villanova 80-
65.
Hamilton, the Big East's second-leading scorer
at 21.4 a game, now has 1,009 points. He joined
Ray Allen of the Milwaukee Bucks as the only
other player in Connecticut history to surpass
1,000 as a sophomore.
"When I first came to UConn, I thought it was
hard to score 20 points," Hamilton said..
"Everything has come so fast. In high school it
took me three years to score 1,000 points."
After struggling to a 36-34 halftime lead,
Hamilton and the Huskies (10-2 Big East, 20-3
overall) turned up the pressure and ran away from
the Wildcats (6-6, 9-11).
Hamilton scored 14 straight points for
Connecticut during an 18-2 run that made it 67-43.
"I told the kids at halftime that we were being
outworked and outhustled," Connecticut coach Jim
Calhoun said. "We couldn't allow that. I told them
that we might lose the game, but it wouldn't be
because we got outworked:"
Khalid El-Amin had 17 points and Kevin
Freeman had 11 for the Huskies.
"We played our game in the second half," said
El-Amin. "In the second half we played
Connecticut basketball, up-and-down, up-and-
down."
Hamilton credited the freshman point guard with
Connecticut's second-half surge.
"Khalid did a great job of getting everybody
involved in the second half," Hamilton said. "He
set the tempo and when he plays like that nobody
is going to beat us."
Howard Brown led Villanova with 17 points.
No. 21 Xavier 91, La Salle 59: Xavier came out
shooting and hardly missed.

18 of their first 20 last night in a 91-59 win over La
Salle.
James Posey led Xavier (7-3 Atlantic 10, 15-5)
with 21 points, but it was Lenny Brown who keyed
the victory with a 14-point first half on 5-for-6
shooting, including 4-of-4 from 3-point range.
"We didn't have too much intensity in warmups,
so I wanted to try to get my team off,' said Brown,
who-finished with 18. "1 hit my first shot and that
helped my confidence."
Posey added nine rebounds and five steals as the
Musketeers won for the seventh time in nine
games. Torraye Braggs had 17 points and I1
rebounds, while Darnell Williams added 15.
"Lenny Brown really got us going," Xavier
coach Skip Prosser said. "We wanted to get offtoa
quick start. It was important to get that first run
because it's a game of runs."
La Salle (3-7, 7-12) has lost two straight after
winning its previous three. Donnie Carr led the.
Explorers with 18 points and Victor Thomas had
16. It was La Salle's lowest point total of the sea-
son.
Xavier missed only two of its first 16 shots in
building a 36-26 lead. The Musketeers shot 69 per-
cent (22-of-32), including 5-of-8 from long range,
in taking a 52-35 lead at the half.
Women's AP Top 25
No. 14 Duke 79, Wake Forest 55: Georgia
Schweitzer and Lauren Rice each scored 17 points
and No. 14 Duke never trailed last night in a 79-55
victory over Wake Forest.
Wake Forest (0-11 Atlantic Coast Conference, 4-
17) lost its 10th straight game. The Demon
Deacons got just 16 points from their starting five,
Kristen Shaffer led the Demon Deacons with 15
and Alisha Mosley had 10.
Schweitzer hit three 3-pointers and scored 13
points during a 19-2 second-half run that turned a
nine-point game into a rout. Schweitzer closed the
burst with a baseline jumper for a 60-34 lead with
11:20 to play.

Brown lacks diversity

Brown Daily Herald
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Brown has
long paid lip-service to fair hiring prac-
tices. Now, the NCAA may ask the
Brown Athletic Department to put its
money where its mouth is.
In accordance with an NCAA regula-
tion that requires each school to undergo
an intensive self-study once every five
years, Brown athletics recently complet-
ed a self-examination that covered four
areas -- governance and commitment to
rules compliance, academic integrity, fis-
cal integrity and commitment to equity.
The report was submitted to the NCAA
for review on July 1, 1997, and the final
decision on Brown's recertification,
along with any suggestions for improve-
ments, will be released next nonth.
In Brown's self-study, one area came

into sharp focus -_. the need for an
increased commitment to recruit and
hire more minority coaches and assis-
tants, under the NCAA's equity guide-
lines.
Currently, Brown has only two minor-
ity head coaches: men's basketball coach
Frank "Happy" Dobbs, and women's
gymnastics coach Jackie Court. There
are also two minority assistant coaches,
on the football and track teams.
Athletic Director Dave Roach said he
is committed to bringing the best possi-
ble coaches to Brown and endorsed
some of the measures the athletic depart-
ment is taking to bring a greater pool of
minority applicants to Brown, such as
advertising with the Black Coaches
Association.
