Cats r

By Graham Shelby
Senior Staff Writer


The two boys huddled together, wrapped in a white UK blanket to shield
themselves from the dripping afternoon cold.

James Kay and Alex Tingle, both 10, along with Tingle's mother, were
among the first fans to arrive at Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport yesterday
afternoon to greet the UK Wildcats upon their return from an overtime de-

feat against Michigan in the Final Four

in New Orleans.

Unlike many UK students who gathered in residence hall rooms and res-

$80 in tickets to the Alan Jackson

concert, inconveniently scheduled at the same time.

That didn‘t stop her from following the contest.

She said she “listened to them on my Walkman during the Alan Jackson
concert." Her ears must have taken a beating because all during the show “I

this time, Michigan didn't gift
wrap the national championship
for North Carolina like George-
town did in 1982.

But the Wolverines did lend a
helping hand. Down 73-71 with
20 seconds left, Michigan sopho-
more center Chris Webber called
a timeout — a timeout Michigan
did not have. In fact, he did it
twice —— once on the inbounds
pass, but the officials didn’t give
it to him then or the second time
at the other baseline.

“1 called a timeout that we did
not have, and I probably cost us
the game," Webber said.

Webber said he did not know
the Wolverines were out of time-
outs, and that he couldn‘t re-

Michigan was assessed a tech-

made cenain everybody knew,"
Fisher said.

“It sounded
like the whole

Fisher himself alluded to the
1982 game when North Carolina
locked up the game when, with
the Hoyas down 62-61 and 32
seconds remaining, Georgetown
forced the ball upcourt without a
timeout. but Georgetown’s Fred
Brown choked, throwing a pass
directly into the hands of Caroli-

“Sometimes when you get in

Fisher said.

Smith, attempting to detract

Marlins defeat Mets for first win


By Steven Wlno
Associated Press


MIAMI — Major league baseball
in Florida got off to a winning start

With perfect weather and a sell-
out crowd, the Marlins made their
historic debut with a 6-3 victory
over the Los Angeles Dodgers. a
team that has been around since

Charlie Hough. a 45-year-old
knuckleballer who grew up near Mi-
ami. pitched the first six innings for
the Marlins' first victory and Bryan
Harvey got the save as players ran
on the field to celebrate, a scene

that looked more like October than
opening day.

Bret Barberie had the Marlins'
first hit, and Benito Santiago scored
the first run. Tim Wallach of the
Dodgers hit the first homer in Joe
Robbie Stadium, and Darryl Straw-
berry received the first boos.

Under a cloudless sky and with a
gametime temperature in the low
803. the Marlins became the second
straight expansion team to win its
opener. The Toronto Blue Jays beat
the Chicago White Sox 9-5 on
April 7, 1977. a day after the Seat-
tle Mariners lost their first game.

Florida didn’t look much like an
expansion team against the Dodg-
ers, who have a record of 8.215-

Rockies lose debut;


Associated Press


NEW YORK — The Colorado
Rockies accomplished a lot of firsts
in their major league debut yester-
day. Winning or scoring wasn‘t one
of them.

The Rockies lost their first game
3-0 to the New York Mets as
Dwight Gooden pitched a four-
hitter to spoil Don Baylor's first
game as manager.

Colorado‘s first hit came at 2:38
pm. EDT when Andres Galarraga
singled hard to left field. But after
the Rockies loaded the bases in the
third inning on Eric Young‘s single,
3 walk and a hit batsman, Galarraga
struck out to end the threat.

Gooden. only 10—13 last season,
retired 17 straight batters before
Dante Bichette singled with one out
in the ninth. He walked one and
struck out four en route to the Mets’
first opening-day shutout since
beating Steve Carlton and Philadel-
phia. 2-0, in 1983.

Galarraga followed Bichette‘s hit
with a single to right but was
thrown out trying to stretch it into a
double. It was Gooden‘s 22nd ca-
reer shutout and he improved to 5-1
on opening day. It was his first
shutout since June 15. 1991 — 44





Colorado starter David Nied be-
came the first Rockies pitcher to
lose a game. giving up two runs,
six hits and six walks in five in-
nings. Nied was the first selection
in the expansion draft last Nov. 17
out of the Atlanta organization.

A capacity crowd of 53,127
showed up to see the Mets' opener
and the Rockies' debut. The game
also was covered by hundreds of
media from around the country.

Former commissioner Fay Vin-
cent threw out the ceremonial first
pitch and the Mets honored New
York Jets defensive end Dennis
Byrd, partially paralyzed from the
neck down last December in a colli-
sion with a teammate.


CHICAGO -— Greg Maddux
pitched another great game at Wri-
gley Field. Only this time it was
against the Chicago Cubs.

Maddux and the Atlanta Braves
began their bid to become one of
baseball‘s best staffs ever in strong
fashion, opening the season by
beating the (‘ubs 1-0 yesterday.

Maddux. who left the Cubs as a
free agent last winter after winning
the Cy Young Award with a 20-11
record. bested Mike Morgan. one
of his closest friends. Maddux

Marlins right fielder Junior Felix
dropped a tlyball. and center fielder
Scott Pose was thrown out twice on
the bases. But Pose and third base-
man Dave Magadan also made fine
defensive plays, and Jeff Conine
went 4 for 4 with two runs scored
and a stolen base.

With much of the crowd of
42.334 wearing their team cap, the
stands looked like a sea of Marlins

The huge clock on the manually
operated scoreboard read 2:12 pm.
EDT when Hough delivered the
first pitch in Marlins‘ history. The
knuckleball to Jose Offerrnan

caught the outside comer for a
called strike.

The fans let out a roar. but it
wasn‘t as loud as the one that came
two pitches later. when Offennan
was called out on strikes. Brett But-
ler also struck out. and Strawberry
grounded weakly back to Hough for
a l-2-3 inning

Florida‘s first batter was Pose.
making his major league debut at
age 26. He reached on a throwing
error by second baseman Jody
Reed. who was acquired in part be-
cause the Dodgers led the National
League in errors last season with
174. Barberie then delivered a line
single to center. but he and Pose
were stranded.

Maddux beats Cubs

and left with runners on first and
second. Mike Stanton got the last
two outs for the two-time National
League champions.

The Braves led the majors with
24 shutouts last season and hoped
that Maddux would make the staff
even stronger. He delivered in his
first start, walking three, striking
out four and not allowing a runner
past second base.

Morgan retired the first two bat-
ters on two pitches and then ran
into trouble in the first inning. Ron
Gant beat out an infield single and
went to second on a wild pitch. Ter-
ry Pendleton walked and David J us-
tice lined a single to the left to score

Maddux drew the biggest jeers
when his name was announced and
in his first at-bat. A fan also threw
back a foul ball that Maddux hit
into the stands.


BALTIMORE — Rick Sutcliffe
had the same problem as President
Clinton yesterday.

Clinton had control trouble with
the season‘s ceremonial first pitch,
and Sutcliffe‘s location wasn‘t any
better. Juan Gonzalez and Dean
Palmer both homered twice, leading
the Texas Rangers over the Balti-
more Orioles 7-4.

Johnny Oates said. “He walked

‘Where's the john?‘ and I said.

CLEVELAND -— Emotions left
over from the boating accident that
killed Steve Olin and Tim Crews in
spring training overshadowed all
else that happened to the Cleveland
Indians yesterday.

The Indians. in a tearful pregame
ceremony, honored the families of
the two pitchers killed March 22,
then lost their season opener to the
New York Yankees 9-1.

“You have to be thinking about
the two pitchers that died." said
George Steinbrenner. the Yankees
owner who returned to baseball
this spring after serving a 2 1/2-
year suspension for dealings with a
gambler. “I feel awful for their
families and their team".

Danny Tartabull. Matt Nokes
and Pat Kelly homered for the Yan-
kees. who broke the game open
with a five-run sixth. Jimmy Key
got the win.

CINCINNATI — Jose Rijo had

The Cincinnati Reds’ banished
owner had to sit in a private third-
floor box — not a bad seat, consid—
ering it was rainy and 41 degrees ——
to watch her team end an off-season
of scandal yesterday with a 2-1 vic-
tory over the Montreal Expos.

Rijo was nearly unhittable, giving
up four singles and a triple in eight
shutout innings. Everything about
his second opening-day start felt
great —- except seeing Schott con-

laiown to the largest regular-season

Van Outer,
Hansen get
NCAA bids

By Brian Bennett
Senior Staff Writer



The UK Gym Cats' season
has ended, but the “Jenny and
Jenny Show" continues.

The team missed a shot at
making its first-ever appearance
in the national championships
on Saturday by finishing fourth
in the NCAA Southeast Region-
al in Athens, 0a.. with a score
too low to qualify.

But the team‘s two leaders
will be in Corvallis, Ore.. April
15-17 for the nationals. Fresh—
men Jenny Hansen and Jennifer
Van Outer received invitations
yesterday to compete in the
championships based on their
regional scores.

Hansen, ranked fourth in the
nation all-around and first on
vault, qualified despite falling
on the beam. She finished fifth
at the Southeast Regional with a
38.825, including a 9.9 on bars.

Van Outer, a Lexington na-
tive, finished sixth all-around
and qualified despite falling and
stepping out of bounds during
the floor exercise.

Hansen and Van Outer be-
come just the third and fourth
gymnasts in school history to
make the nationals.

The bids didn‘t surprise head
coach Leah Little. who had so
much confidence in the two that
she dubbed the Gym Cats year
“The Jenny and Jenny Show"
before the season.

“I felt all along that they both
could go." she said.

Those expectations started to
mount especially on Hansen af-
ter her extremely successful sea-

Case in point: in Athens. the
local newspaper ran a story
about how it was all up to Han-
sen if UK wanted to do well in
the regional. Little didn‘t want
llanscn to see the article. but
llanscn read it anyway.

“I think the pressure has real-
ly gotten to Jenny.“ Little said.
"All of a sudden, with all of this
media attention, she felt like she
had to carry the whole team by
herself. That's a lot of pressure
for a freshman."

vallis, said she doesn't enter the
meet with expectations for their suc-
cess, but rather a different, team-
on‘ented goal.

“My goal is to have them go out
there and have that experience and
then come back and say (to the
team), ‘Hey. guys. you’re going
with us next year.‘ " she said.

Georgia won Saturday's regional
with a 197.5, followed by Florida at
194.3 and North Carolina State at
191. UK posted a 190.8, ahead of
Towson State, West Virginia and
George Washington.

The Cats‘ showing in Athens
made Little think about what could
have been.

“When you know you could have
done better, it leaves room for
thought." she said. “We were close.
We were real close.

“I‘m a little disappointed."

Still. UK (14-13) finished with its
first-ever winning season and a No.
18 national ranking.

Little said the growth of the pro
gram is a testament to a decision she
made to schedule the top teams in
the nation. This season, for exam-
ple, all five of UK‘s Southeastern
Conference opponents were ranked
in the Top 10.

“After having a winning record
against that kind of schedule, maybe
we're finally there,“ she said.



Jenny Hansen, the SEC co-champion and freshman of the
year, will conclude her season at NCAA championships.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In the
end. Eddie Fogler said his decision
to leave Vanderbilt for South Caro-
lina came down to respect rather
than money. _

“Here the last four weeks. it went
from a financial issue to principle
to me — what is fair, what is equi-
table. what is right." Fogler said
yesterday in a farewell news con-
ference at Vanderbilt.

“It got past the financial issue -—
what started the issue two years ago
—- to principle to me. and another
great option came along."

Fogler, 44, was named coach of
the year Friday after leading Van-
derbilt to a 28-6 record and a berth
in the NCAA Tournament. He ac-
cepted the South Carolina job a day
later and one week after Bobby
Cremins backed out of the job and
decided to stay at Georgia Tech.

“I could‘ve finished my coaching
career here," Fogler said. “I
wouldn‘t have left to go some-
where just because of finances.
That would be ridiculous. People
who know me know how much my
family really likes it here."

Fogler was 81-48 in four seasons

at Vanderbilt. and his 1990 lean
won the National Invitation Tour-

Fogler said he asked two years
ago for a pay raise.

“it was a financial issue, 1 don't
deny that," Fogler said. “My finan-
cial situation was not the equal of
my peers in the Southeastern Con-
ference. I felt that should be looked
at — very nicely. I didn't demand,
I asked for that to be reviewed."

The coach said that Vanderth
chancellor Joe Wyatt didn't re-
spond to the request and that sever-
al people reported him to be out of

“Certainly. there's phones in
about every state I've been in.“ he

Wyatt said in a statement yester-
day aftemoon that he offered
Thursday through the athletic di-
rector to speak with Fogler by tele-
phone or to meet with him. But he
said he doesn’t think a conversa-
tion would have changed things.

“ . Certainly those conversa-
tions would not have altered the fi-
nancial parameters under which
Mr. (Paul) Hoolahan and the Ath-
letic Department must operate .. .
the statement said.

right time for him, especially the
last one.

“Donald‘s run in these last four
games has been outstanding."
Smith said.

With 3:08 remaining and North
Carolina seemingly reeling and
down 67-63, Williams connected
from behind the arc to spur a much-
bigger—than-it-sounds 9-0 run that
left UNC up 72-67 with just a min-
ute left in the game.

But Ray Jackson got open on the
right wing and hit a long jumper to
make it 72-69 with 47 seconds left.
Michigan called its third and final
timeout of the half.

Surrounded by Michigan players
on the sideline trying to foul him to
stop the clock, Reese stepped on the
out-of-bounds line. giving Michi-
gan the ball.

Michigan cut the lead to one to
set, and Carolina got a free throw.

setting up the Webber play.

For Smith, it was a career mile-
stone. Smith, currently second to
UK's Adolph Rupp on the all-time
win list for Division I coaches, had
just one title under his belt. al-
though this was his ninth trip to the
Final Four and his fifth time coach-
ing in the national finals game.

His previous title came in 1982,
in the game when Michael Jordan,
now with the NBA's Chicago Bulls,
hit the now-famous jumper to beat
Georgetown 63452.

The second championship places
him among some elite company. Of
active coaches. only Louisville’s
Denny Cnrm, Indiana's Bobby
Knight and Duke's Mike Knyzew-
ski had more than one national
championship before last night.
Smith makes it a fivesome.

Carolina ended its season 34-4,
while Michigan improved to 31-5
overall, the best record in school
history. Carolina‘s 34 wins were
also a school record.
