Judge finds
liable for
UK death

By Alice Haymond


A Fayette County judge ruled
yesterday that Shane Ragland.
who pleaded guilty to second-de-
gree manslaughter in August. is li-
able for the death of former UK
football player Trent DiGiuro.

DiGiuro. a former offensive
lineman. died from a gunshot to
the head on July 17. 1994, while
celebrating his birthday on the
front porch of his Woodland Av-
enue home.

After the criminal case end-
ed in August with Ragland‘s
guilty plea. the DiGiuro family
resumed a civil suit that was ini-
tially filed in
2002 for darn-
ages against

T h e
DiGiuro fami-
ly submitted a
motion for
s u m m a r y
judgment on
Sept. 26. re-
questing that
they would not have to prove
Ragland‘s liability before moving
forward with the civil trial.

But Ragland's attorney.
Steve Romines. responded to the
DiGiuros‘ suit on Oct. 26. stat-
ing that his client‘s guilty plea
did not establish liability in
DiGiuro‘s death.

In that response. Romines
said the consequences of going to
trial played a role in Ragland‘s de-
cision to plead guilty and did not
necessarily prove his guilt.

However. the judge's ruling
yesterday allows the DiGiuro
family to continue the civil suit
trial and receive compensation
from Ragland without proving
his guilt.

The DiGiuros declined to
comment yesterday and referred
the Kernel to their attorney.
Thomas Conway.

“They‘re glad that it moved
forward." Conway said. “They’ve
been waiting awhile."

Romines could not be reached
yesterday to comment on the rul-

Ragland was convicted of
DiGiuro's murder in 2002 and
sentenced to 30 years in prison.
But the conviction was overturned
in 2004 when the State Supreme
Court ruled that prosecutors mis-
spoke in closing arguments.

The Supreme Court over-
turned the conviction again in
March 2006 and ordered a new
trial after research indicated that
bullet lead tests that connected
Ragland to the crime were unre-
liable in the original trial.

In exchange for the August
plea. prosecutors recommended
that Ragland serve an eight-year
sentence. Ragland received
credit for more than four and a
half years served in prison as
well as 14 months of home in-
carceration while he was out of
prison on bond. He finished his
sentence Aug. 30.

The jury trial for the civil suit
will begin during the summer.
Conway said. Because Ragland is
considered liable for DiGiuro‘s
death. he will have to pay dam-
ages. but the amount will not be
determined until the jury trial.

Cats fans have plenty to watch
while waiting for weekend’s games

and lost 72-46. Thursday they‘ll play at No. 17
Georgia. Sunday they‘ll travel to Knoxville.
Tenn.. to play No. 2 Tennessee.

Three games in seven days against teams
with an average ranking of about nine. Good
thing UK is off to a great start in league play.

After going just 6-8 in non-conference play.
the ladies are 4-2 and in third place overall (in
Southeastern Conference women‘s hoops. the
conference isn‘t split up into the Eastern and
Western Division.)

Just like that stretch for the football team. it
will be important for the women‘s basketball
team to win one of the three games. Thursday's
game against Georgia will probably be the Cats'
best chance since they lost to Tennessee by 25
points at home 12 days ago.

n Friday. gymnastics. at LSU. When people
think about the SEC. usually football is the first
sport that comes to mind. That’s not to say the
SEC isn‘t excellent at football — just ask Ohio
State — it's just that the conference is probably
even more dominant in gymnastics.


As soon as the men‘s basketball team gets on
a roll and wins two straight games they get a
week off.
Yes, the Cats have it going now. They’ve
won consecutive games for the first time since
Nov. 27. and they‘ll have a
chance to get back over
.500 — a mark they
haven’t seen since Dec. 8
— this weekend at Geor-

But until then. and until
the undefeated Patriots
blow out the Giants in Su-
per Bowl XLII on Sunday,
UK fans are going to have
to find something to do
with their time.

Here’s a list of three
UK teams that have big

events this week that all UK
fans should keep track of:

Junior defense-
man Alex Robin
son calls for the
puck in a game
against Kenne-
saw State dur~
ing the weekend
of Oct. 19.


Not your typical club team

Rowdy fans make home—ice a cool place for UK









n Wednesday, women‘s tennis. versus
Louisville. It's exciting anytime U of L and UK
play each other. This tennis match should be no

UK is off to a 3-0 start and the Cats are up to
No. 34 in the national rankings. They are com—
ing off a 7-0 win over No. 23 Michigan. The
Cards are 1-1 on the year. and they just beat
Michigan State.

Last year. UK beat the Cards 6-1 at
Louisville. Most of that UK team is gone this
season — the Cats have three freshman. three
sophomores and no seniors — so it would be
worth seeing what the UK squad is going to look
like over the next few seasons.

n Thursday. women‘s basketball. at Georgia.
Remember when the UK football team had to play
South Carolina. Louisiana State and Florida this
year? At the time. each of those teams was ranked
in the top-12. The women‘s basketball team is up
against the same type of stretch right now.

On Sunday. the Cats played then-No. 9 LSU

Of the top 10 teams in last week's national

gymnastics rankings. five are from the SEC. The
top three teams are Florida. Georgia and Alabama.
LSU, UK‘s opponent on Friday night. is No. 5.

UK is 1-1 in the conference. but that could

change dramatically over the next few weeks.

Look at the run the gymnastics team has to

navigate through the rest of the season: last week
against No. 3 Alabama. No. 5 LSU on Friday.
then No. I Florida. No. 10 Arkansas and No. 2

And if that wasn't enough. the Cats then

play three straight nonuconfercncc matches
against No. 13 Nebraska. No. 14 Arizona and
No. 18 Ohio State.

If they can get a win or two out of that

gauntlet. then anything is possible.

Maybe even the Giants beating the Patriots
in the Super Bowl.

Bradley, Patterson earn SEC honors

For the first time in school history. the UK

scorers with 26 points in the 78-70 win over
South Carolina. and added 10 rebounds for his
second career double—double.

Patterson was named SEC Freshman of
the Week for the second time this season. The
forward averaged 21.0 points. 8.5 rebounds.
2.5 assists and 2.5 blocks last week to help
lead UK to its first back—to—back wins since
Nov. 27.

The announcement marked only the third
time a school has eamed both SEC Player and
Freshman of the Week honors. and the first
time since Tennessee did so on Dec. 25. 2006.

At first glance. freezing tem-
peratures. post-midnight start
times and a lack of funding
would seem to be enough to
doom a small club team.

So how does the UK hockey
team make the Lexington lce
Center a popular destination
long after most people have
gone to bed? Add a few hundred
college co-eds. a pinch of late-
night hysteria and a little Garry
Glitter music and allow ingredi-
ents to chill.

“It‘s a crowd like no other."
said Alex Robinson. a UK junior

The Cool Cats. who play in
the Southeast Conference of Di-
vision ll of the American Colle-
giate Hockey Association. swept
a pair of games from Ferris
State University over the week—
end to improve to 16-9-2 on the
season. Robinson said UK‘s suc—
cess has been due in large part
to the home—ice atmosphere at
the Lexington lcc Center.

"This crowd provides a huge
advantage for us.“ Robinson
said. “We can hear them chanti-
ng before the game from the
locker room. It gets everybody
pumped up."

Manager and announcer Jim
Hinkley stirs the crowd up dur-
ing games with an eclectic
soundtrack of rock ballads. Dur—
ing Saturday night‘s game. fans
heard the theme to the “Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles." "Ghost-
busters" and Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s

But no song gets the fans
going like Garry Glitter’s "Rock
and Roll Pan Two." The song is
played after every goal netted by
the home team.

The fans also add to the
home-ice advantage by berating
opposing teams. After each Cool
Cat score. fans break out into a
chorus of “you sucks" closing
out the song by yelling in unison
“we‘re gonna beat the f——— out of

The university provides
about 1 percent of the funding
needed to operate the team. ac-

cording to the UK hockey Web
site. As a club team. UK hockey
does not receive the funding
provided to more prominent var-
sity sports.

But that hasn't seemed to
slow the Cool Cats' progress.

Most of the team’s $65000-
plus budget comes from ticket
sales to those rowdy fans. as
well as sponsorships from local
businesses. Players also have to
pay a $750 registration fee each

Despite financial strains. the
Cool Cats have developed a rep»
utation for having competitive.
winning teams. which have won
at least 19 games in each of the
past three seasons.

“1 have traveled with the
team all over the country and I
can tell you this: Kentucky
hockey fans rule!" Hinkley
wrote in a letter to the fans
printed in the team‘s program.
“There are no other fans any-
where in the American Colle«
giate Hockey Association that
can hold a candle to you."

Robinson said UK doesn‘t
enjoy the same support when
they play away from home.

“On the road there is no
crowd." he said. "Just family.
friends and maybe 15 fans or so."

The Cool Cats have also at-
tracted a few celebrity fans.
Since the 1998-99 season. the
UK hockey team has produced a
schedule poster featuring a
prominent Kentucky beauty.
clad in only a UK hockey
sweater. The first poster. which
remains the most popular. fea-
tured actress Ashley Judd in a
No. 1 sweater.

Actressses Rebecca Gay-
heart and Leah Lail. models
Julie and Shawnie Costello.
Kylie Bax and Alison List. box-
ing announcer Amy Hayes. and
former-Miss USA Tara Conner
have since graced the annual
hockey poster.

Maybe it's the late-night
party atmosphere. Maybe it‘s
whatever the security guards are
looking for when they search
fans entering the arena. Maybe
it‘s those famous hockey
posters. Whatever the secret in—
gredient for success is. fans like
Robbie Brooks think the UK
hockey team has found it.

"I don‘t really know any-
thing about hockey. but the at-
mosphere at these games is just
electric." said Brooks. an agri-
culture biotechnology sopho-
more. “You can‘t help but get
caught up in it.”
