Marquette burns Cats in 2nd round

UK ’s Florida beach party
ends with 75 -63 defeat


By Ty Halpln
Sports Editor


Florida sun, thousands of UK fans
and a high seed in the NCAA
Tournament awaited the No. 7
Wildcats when they arrived here.
They didn't see it coming.
Marquette swept the Cats out of
the tournament yesterday 75-63 at
the Thunderdome. The Warriors
had not only the key to UK’s press,

but also Damon Key, a 6-foot-8
senior. Key unlocked the interior of
the Wildcats' zone, scoring 25
points and grabbing six rebounds.

Marquette sunned itself and the
crowd of 25,830 in the glow of 51
percent shooting.

“That was our best game this
year," Marquette coach Kevin
O'Neill said.

And it couldn't have come at a
better time. On the flipside, UK‘s
game was partly cloudy. Rays of
sunlight poked through only

momentarily as the Cats shot just
31.6 percent.

UK forward Rodrick Rhodes was
disappointed, but he put
things into perspective.

“It happened at an
unfortunate time, but that’s
the game of basketball." he
said. “Marquette simply
outplayed us."

The Cats may have spent
a bit too much time on the
beach, judging from their
performance in the first half.
UK came out cold, shooting
28.6 percent from the field
and Marquette built a 39-24 lead at
the break.

Meanwhile, the Warriors were


I I It!!!”

sunburning the Thunderdome's
nets. The Warriors looked more
like the NBA’s Golden State
variety in shooting 57.7
percent in the first stanza.

Rushed shots were the
norm for UK. The Cats were
an uncharacteristic l-of-ll
from three point—range.

“We didn't have a bad
shooting night; we just
didn‘t take the right shots,"
senior point guard Travis
Ford said.

UK coach Rick Pitino
said the Cats weren‘t patient
enough in their half-court offense.

“We didn't take our time and
make the extra pass," he said. “That

was why we didn't shoot well."

To punctuate the chaotic opening
half, the Wildcats were completely
disorganized as time ran out. The
Cats could only manage a Jeff
Brassow desperation three-pointer
from 40 feet that came up well

The Cats, as expected, were
energized to start the second half.
After a Marquette three-pointer,
UK went on a l5-point run to cut
the Warrior lead to 42-39 with
14:08 left to play.

“I thought we were going to win
it,” said guard Tony Delk, who
scored 12 points in the run.

Pitino also thought the Cats were

The game was lost. the UK coach
said, when he subbed for an
exhausted first team.

“When the second team went in,
they backed off,“ Pitino said. “I
thought we were ready to take the
lead, but we allowed Marquette to

“We knew we were capable of
coming back,” forward Jared
Prickett said. “l guess it just wasn't
meant to be."

The Warriors blanketed UK's
inside game with what seemed like
a 30 SPF sunscreen. Rhodes didn’t
score a point. and Andre Riddick,
who scorched Tennessee State for

Festival of Life

Olmos to speak cons1der1ng

Media group



By Joe Goodbey
Contributing Writer


“Celebrating Diversity: A
Festival of Life,” a weeklong event
designed to foster multi-cultural
understanding, will begin tonight
with a speech by “Miami Vice” star
Edward James Olmos at Memorial

Olmos played Lt. Castillo in the
19803 TV police drama and won
critical acclaim for his portrayal of
high school calculus
teacher Jaime
Escalante in the movie
“Stand and Deliver.” _

The Hispanic actor j
also is scheduled to
have an informal ;
meeting with students ,
in Worsham Theatre "
at 3 this afternoon.

This year's festival
committee decided to
bring Olmos to UK
because he is a good
representation of
diversity, organizers

He was one of the first public
figures to take to the streets in Los
Angeles following the Rodney
King riots, giving his time to help
clean up fire-bombed

“We are not a committee that is
unwilling to try different
programs,” said Terry Allen,
festival committee chairman.

Each year an assessment is done
to allow the committee to decide
upon what works and what new
ideas can be implemented for the
following festival, Allen said.

i There currently are 27 members
i on the festival committee,

representing nine ethnic groups.
. Committee members range from
l faculty and staff to students and
members of the Lexington

The festivals started in 1989 with
an endowment that was established
by UK and an anonymous donor.

. " Although the endowment helps





with the event‘s cost. the festival
also relies heavily on volunteers.

Allen said 200 to 300 volunteers
will be needed, adding: “It takes
tremendous commitment.“

The festival has flourished from
a one-day event in 1989 to a
weeklong festival that this year
continues through Saturday.

In addition to Olmos'

presentation. the festival will
include various exhibits throughout
the week.

It ends with a
cultural workshop that
will be held at
Spindletop Hall on

" Saturday.
One of the
highlights of the
festival will be a

European Pastry Cafe,
which will be open
from 10 am. to 4 pm.
today through Friday
in 245 Student Center.

Di'shes from
Austria. France,
Germany and Hungary
will be available.
Students also can sample an
international buffet on Tuesday and
Thursday from 11 am. to 2 pm. in
the Student Center Small Ballroom.

A Taste of Diversity will have
dishes ranging from baklava to
fried rice, as well as sample foods
from Asia, Europe, Australia and
many other nations.

A Night of Student
Entertainment is scheduled for 7
pm. Wednesday at Memorial Hall.
Students may sample traditional
music, dance and fashions from
around the world.

Tickets are are $3 in advance and
$4 at the door.

Olmos' speech will begin at 7:30
pm. Tickets purchased in advance
are $4 for the general public and
$2 for students; $5 at the door.

Anyone interested in registering
for the cross-cultural workshop
should call 257-1655 for more

David Hawpe, editor in chief of
The Courier-Journal in Louisville.
said he has personally pushed for a
state news council for more than a
decade, although he said the idea
“was not popular 10 years ago and
is not popular now.”

Hawpe called the demise of the
bill “a missed opportunity in the

Hawpc said he is very pleased,
however, that Thompson plans to
pursue the creation of an

Council plan
deeply splits
state’s press


By Kathy W. Latitln
Staff Writer


If the state House of
Representatives had approved a
measure last week calling for the
formation of a “news council,"
Kentuckians soon would have
had a government agency to hear
their complaints about the state’s
news media.

A state news council also
would have conducted research
and seminars on news media
ethics, and would have been run
by a member of UK’s School of
Journalism and Tele-
communications faculty.

The media would not have
been required to participate, and
decisions of the council hearings
would not have been binding on
the news media. However,

Clinic helps children, students


By Shannon J. Haniey
Staff Writer


Ten-year-old Chad Richmond
said he was a little scared at first

But Chad, a student at
Breckinridge Elementary, eased up
after UK dental student Darren
Flowers finished filling one of his
teeth at free dental clinic Saturday.

“It really didn‘t hurt at all," Chad
said, smiling.

And that's exactly what clinic

organizers were aiming for.

“We really attempt to provide a
relaxed atmosphere,” said Daniel
Seaver, director of Students Affairs
for the College of Dentistry. “It’s
imponant to put the patients at ease
and provide them with dental care
that they might not otherwise

This weekend's free clinic,
which treated dozens of needy
children like Chad, is one of about
six that UK’s chapter of the

American Student Dental
Association sponsors each year.

Dr. Jim Timmons, an instructor
in the College of Dentistry, said
the clinic allows dental students
to “handle kids in a real—life

“The clinic provides students
with a sense of accomplishment,"
Timmons said.

dental student, said the clinics are
great because they allow students

‘Real World’ star talks
about life in Hollywood


By Stephen D. Trlmble
Assistant News Editor


Last summer. Jon Brennan
appeared on MTV‘s “The Real
World,“ a series that details
relationships between divergent
roommates thrown together for the
benefit of TV cameras.

The show was an opportunity for
Brennan, a Kentucky native and
aspiring country music star, to get
lots of nationwide exposure.

But for Brennan, who calls
himself a country-singing
Christian, as opposed to a Christian
country singer, the experience was
only hardship.

Still, the Kentucky native said he
thought MTV was the place he
needed to be — where God needed
him to be.

Brennan said during a recent
meeting of UK’s Fellowship of
Christian Athletes. ”It just sort of
fell together for me.”

So there Brennan was in early
February of last year, moving to
Los Angeles, living in a Hollywood
townhouse with five other
roommates, mingling with country
music stars — all at MTV's
expense —- and feeling absolutely

After learning of his religious
convictions, Brennan‘s roommates
remained a safe distance from
rousing his conversation on
religious topics.

He surprised everyone in the
house. not to mention his
producers, when he objected to one
of his roommate's decisions to
have an abortion.

much," Brennan said of his shon-
time roommates. “They got real
mad at me when I started counting
the days to when 1 would be

But looking back, Brennan told
the UK audience, the ordeal was
worth going through.

He said he gets letters daily from
parents and teenagers all over the
world who seek his advice on
dealing with peer pressure and
offer congratulations for
maintaining his beliefs in a not-so-
friendly environment.

“It was a hard thing to do
because really i could‘ve done
anything i wanted to. l was in L.A.,
away from my parents. The
cameras were there. but I really
could have done anything."

she said.

Dr. Debbie Ray, an instructor in
the College of Dentistry, agreed.

similar clinics while she was a
student at UK.

Floating Men rise

acoustic-driven debut


The Floating Men
Tall Shadows

Assistant Arts Editor

Drowned in a sea of feedback
and lost behind a wall of distortion
and society-driven angst. acoustic
music nearly became a rarity on
rock and pop radio near the close of
the ‘803.

With the approach of the mid-
l990s, however. acoustic guitar-
oriented music has entered some
sort of revitalization period,
heading back to the mainstream of
the music industry.

So much so, in
fact, that the
listening public is
beginning to
realize there is
more to the
acoustic sound

Many bands now are even
venturing into that non-electric
territory voluntarily. opting not to
attach that success—magnifying
MTV moniker and simply to write
music designed specifically for the
acoustic guitar.

True, there isn't an overload of
bands that are willing to base their
entire sound a six-string without
electricity, but the Floating Men
have written such an amazing debut
that it deserves to be heard by the
overloaded ears of the masses.

Tall Shadows fuses elements of
blues, folk, a minute bit of country
(the guys are from Nashville, after
all) and that always undefinable
“altemative” aspect into their own
brand of acoustic rock, leading the
entire fray with soul and an
emotional insight that brings the
listener into the music.

Nashville's The Floating Men will be performing acoustic tunes
taken from their debut CD at Lynagh's on March 30.

“Swallowed By The Night" to the
nearly tear-jerking fall of “A Date
With A Vampire." (No, this has
nothing to do with Anne Rice.)

Holmes‘ vocals are incredibly
adaptable to any emotion and can
project his feelings through some
of the simplest of verses. coupled
with guitar melodies that seem as
though they should have been
written decades ago.

From the opening catch of
“Where The Miracles Fly," the
album spawns quite a few tunes
that should rack the Floating Men
much more airplay than they
probably will ever receive. Nearly
every track leaves anyone within
earshot singing the catchy choruses
to him- or herself.

Holmes' Nashville influences
peek through every now and again
as his voice takes on an almost
southern drawl at times, especially
in “World of Shadows," a
bittersweet account of being
trapped in the wrong relationship,
and the album's closing ballad,

One point that lifts the album
even further is the band's foresight
not to create a sleepy debut by
relying on the popularity of slow
tempo ballads throughout. The
Floating Men are indeed an
acoustic rock band, and many of
these songs do move at a quick

The best example is the album‘s
diamond, “Friday Afternoon," an
amazingly well-written romp that
examines the insanity one goes
through while agonizingly waiting
all day for that elusive phone call
from a prospective date.

The only lctdowns on the entire
CD come from a few tracks that,
while still ear-catching. don't
develop to their full potential. The
Chris Isaak-like vocals of “So Be
It" and the anti-drug message of
“Hey Maria" seem to stand in one
place, not leading to any musical
climaxes or points.

The Floating Men will perform
at Lynagh's with Lexington 's own
Rostulara on March 30.
