study after former University Pathology

ing that. through DNA research. he had
found a link between Jefferson‘s family
and the Hemings' descendants.

Daniel P. Jordan, Thomas Jefferson

study was conducted by historians and sci-

outcome of the committee‘s research ef-

Dining options
present problem

Dining debate: Students have difficulty choosing
whether or not to eat on campus

By Krystal Spears
courmaurmo wrurrrT.

To eat or not to eat. that is the ques-
tion. Whether 'tis nobler for the body to
suffer the slings and arrows of campus
food orjust go to Telly-Ila? This is the
daily dilemma of several UK students
who live on campus.

One might ask, what makes this de-
cision so difficult? Each residential stu-
dent pays $675 for a diner account. The
diner account can be used at any UK
Food Service outlet except for Block and
Barrel. The Lemon Tree and Intermezzo.

When broken down. this is a daily
allowance of about $6, enough for "a
meal and a snack." according to a UK
Food Services brochure.

Students have mixed
feelings about eating on
campus. Many stu-
dents choose to eat
on campus because
they do have the
diner account: it is
almost an obligation
since only $50 car-
ries over from

“I hardly ever used to eat on cam-

Surviving the storm: UK overcomes Miami with
a too-close-for-comfort non-conference victory


MIAMI Kentucky‘s break
from Southeastern Conference
play was anything but leisurely.

Keith Hogans scored 16 points
and Desmond Allison added 15 as
liithranked UK (15-5) beat Miami
60-5? Saturday for its fifth consecu~
tive victory and 11th in 12 games.

“This was a crucial win for us
because it‘s so important for us to
keep our momentum going back
into SEC play." said UK center Ja-
maal Magloire. who had 11 points
and seven rebounds.

The Cats led much of the
game with the help of 20 offensive
rebounds. but the Hurricanes used
a 1252 run late in the second half to
go ahead 37-51% with ~12 seconds re-

'l‘ayshaun l’rince hit a run-
ning jumper in the lane. regaining
the lead for the Wildcats. Miami
(12-8) had a chance to take the lead
with 30 seconds to play. but Ver-
non Jennings" shot from under the
basket hit the bottom of the rim.
Saul Smith grabbed the loose ball
and called timeout as he fell out of
bounds to save possession for UK.

"I'm not sure we could have
gotten a better shot than Vernon
had point-blank in the lane." Mia-
mi coach Leonard Hamilton said.
"L'nfortunately we just didn‘t
make plays in the final seconds
and their kids did."

The Hurricanes fouled Ma
gloire on the ensuing possession.
and he made two free throws with
3.4 seconds left. Jennings‘ 3-point

er at the buzzer didn‘t even reach
the rim. Johnny Hemsley led the
Hurricanes with 18 points but shot
only 5-forv15. Mario Bland added 10
points and seven rebounds.

UK had several chances to
put the game out of reach before
the closing minutes. They closed
the first half on a 15—4 run and led
35525 at halftime.

The Hurricanes went on a 143
spurt in the opening minutes of
the second half and regained the
lead 39-38. UK then opened a nine-
point lead ,. its biggest of the sec-
ond half , when Smith made a 3-
pointer just before the shot clock

"This type of game can give
you confidence or it can take your
heart." said Wildcat coach Tubby
Smith. whose club plays No. 11
Tennessee and No. 10 Florida the
next two weeks.

“Coming on the road and
stepping out of the SEC at this
time is a tough thing to do." Smith
added. “It was a war and if we had
lost the game. then it would have
been real tough mentally for us."

Miami shot 39 percent and
committed only nine turnovers
against UK's pressure defense. but
the Hurricanes struggled to keep
the Wildcats off the offensive

UK had as many offensive re-
bounds (15) as Miami had re-
bounds in the first half. The Wild-
cats out-rebounded Miami 4031 for

the game.

"They have good athletes and
it became a jumping contest and
they won too many of those.“

some good looks at the basket. and
she responded by canning five

one of those kinds of players."

Leading the way was Tamika
Catchings. UT's junior forward
who finished with 15 points to
match her 15 rebounds. including
five offensive boards.

"Offensively. there‘s no doubt
she‘s our best rebounder." Sum-
mitt said. “We don‘t have a better
example of how to rebound the
basketball than Tamika."

The game left UK wishing they
had put forth a better effort.

“I did not feel that our basket-
ball team came out and played the
best game they're capable of play-
ing." Mattox said.

"We just didn‘t box out well or
get to loose balls." said UK forward

The Lady Vols never really
looked back from that point. even
as they struggled from the field (it)

UK was also hurt by the ab-
sence of Shantia Owens. who
spent most of the game in foul
trouble before finally fouling out
with 11:42 remaining and without
scoring a point.

UT played Saturday against
No. 8 North Carolina State. but
showed no signs of fatigue. as they
shot 57 percent in the first half to
take a 47-27 halftime lead.

“For such a short rest. I
thought we had a lot of intensity."
Summitt said.

“We really came out and
turned things up defensively."

Neither team turned the ball
over that much. but UT's eight of

with UK's poor shooting was too
much to overcome.

Mattox said. “They took 64 shots.

Agassi claims
sixth Grand
Slam title


MELBOURNE. Australia Better and better as time goes
on. Andre Agassi claimed his second Australian Open and sixth
Grand Slam title Sunday in an artistic and bruising victory
over Yevgeny Kafelnikov.

Five of Agassi's most exquisite. feathery drop shots and
dozens of powerful groundstrokes sapped the strength and spir-
it from the defending champion in a 3-6. 63, 62, 64 triumph.

At 29. Agassi left no doubt that he rules men‘s tennis. In less
than a year. he has won the French. US. and Australian Opens
and finished runnerup at Wimbledon.

This time he put the exclamation point on his win with
three aces at up to 123 mph in the last game.

Agassi. the first player to reach four straight major finals
since Rod Laver won the Grand Slam in 1969. pushed his career
earnings to nearly $20 million with the 3485.000 winner‘s check.

"I think he's hitting his stride right now." Agassi's coach.
Brad Gilbert. said. “Ultimately he wants to keep improving.
There are a lot more titles for him to win. He has three or four
more good years left in him.“

Agassi thanked Gilbert and his trainer. Gil Reyes. for
telling him over and over that his best would be good enough all
the time as long as he stayed in peak shape. And though Agassi
didn‘t mention girlfriend Steffi Graf. who sat between them in
the stands. he saluted her as they exchanged smiles.
