  2. North Texas Soccer Falls To Baylor 4-3 In Overtime WACO, Tex (8/31/03)-- Bethany Vick scored in the fourth minute of overtime to lift the Baylor Bears past North Texas (1-1) 4-3 in the championship game of the Baylor Labor Day Classic. Vick's game-winning goal came on a rebound after North Texas goalkeeper Briana Buchanan turned away the first shot by Emily Fukuchi. The Mean Green and Bears combined for six goals in a wild first half of action that saw the lead see-saw back and forth. Junior defender Jessica Koshmann gave the Mean Green the early lead with a goal four minutes into the game. Baylor tied the game at 1-1 four minutes later but junior Melinda Pina got the lead right back for North Texas with a goal at the 8:18 mark to make it 2-1. The Bears came right back with a goal in the 12th minute to tie the game at 2-2 and took the lead at 3-2 just seconds later when Fukuchi beat Buchanan on an unassisted goal. Pina tied the game back up at 3-3 with her second goal of the night in the 37th minute on the right side from 10 yards out. North Texas is next in action for the home opener on Wednesday, September 3 against Texas State.

Jill Ruskowski (Richmond, Tex.), Marginas and Brieanne Fowler (Odessa, Tex.) all produced a double-double in the match, while Stephanie Connors (San Antonio, Tex.) collected a career and match-high 17 digs. Sheppard piled up a match-best 56 assists to pace the North Texas offensive attack. North Texas’ match against Lamar was a back-and-forth battle that lasted 2:41, but the Mean Green finally got past the Lady Cardinals 28-30, 30-27, 23-30, 30-21, 15-5. NT posted a .269 hitting percentage in comparison to Lamar’s .200. Gregory smashed a career-best 22 kills and Marginas had 21 kills to lead North Texas. Anne Pope (Aurora, Colo.) also recorded double-figure kills, finishing the match with a career-high 14. Sheppard dished out a season-high 60 assists in the outing.

  4. Brianna got her first, of what I hope is many, shut out of the year.
  5. Rockwall hires UNT alumnus Blakeman ROCKWALL — Former North Texas volleyball player Nicole Blakeman was hired this week as head volleyball coach for Rockwall High School. Blakeman, who played for UNT under the last name Barzilla before marrying, graduated from UNT in 1993 and then went on to Clear Lake High School. After serving as an assistant for one year, she took the head coaching job and went on an eight-year run, picking up her 200th victory in 2002. Rockwall athletic director Mark Elam jumped at the opportunity to hire Blakeman. "We’re excited about her being here," said Elam. "I just liked her presence and her passion for the sport. She was successful at Clear Lake, and she’s just the type of person we need to come in and help us. We’re a growing community, and our girls track team and basketball team have both seen success. I think our volleyball team is ready for that type of progression." Blakeman said she was ready for the challenge. "It’s a rebuilding program, and I thought that would be a great challenge," she said. "It’s a great area, and I’ll have a full-time assistant coach. — Staff report
  6. But if she stays with him. She'll get even more. I don't know what to think. I can't get any hotel clerk to come to my room at midnight. She knew what she was going there for. But if she said No. Nothing should have happened.
  7. I'm glad the baby is healthy. That's good news. I wish CD all of the luck in accomplishing his goals.
  8. When is the Darrell Dickey Invitational Football game (i.e. The New Orleans Bowl). Does it interfere with the IU game. If the IU game is after the NO Bowl, maybe we can present the Bowl Trophy to the crowd.
  9. I know we wouldn't give him a 5-year-deal, but going to the red army. That hurts. That's like Booger transfering to MUTS.
  10. The first NBA draft took place in1947. The 50 draft was 10 rounds for some teams and 12 for others. The 1951 draft was 12 rounds. The draft was 10 round as late 1984. The NBA Draft was 7 rounds until 1987, when a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NBA and the Players Association reduced the college draft to three rounds in 1988 and two rounds in 1989. It has remained that way since.
  11. The Spurs behind league MVP Tim Duncan will close out the NJ Nets this evening. This series has not been highly-rated or well-played, but the Spurs two losses, in which they played horribley, is by a total of three points. That tells you how dominant San Antonio has been in this series. They shoot under 30 percent and the Nets shoot close to 60 percent and the Spurs lose only by one. I like J Kidd, but he doesn't deserve an NBA Title just yet. Maybe next year. GMG
  12. Former Lincoln star to enter NBA draft 05/10/2003 By CALVIN WATKINS / The Dallas Morning News Lincoln graduate Chris Bosh announced he's leaving college to enter the NBA Draft. Bosh made the annnouncement at Lincoln High School, surrounded by a dozen friends and family and his college coach, Paul Hewitt of Georgia Tech. "It was a very difficult decsion," Bosh said. "I enjoyed myself at Georgia Tech. It was really tough because I had teammates there that were depending on me. But this was the best decision for me at this time." Bosh, a freshman at Georgia Tech, has been projected as a lottery pick. At 6-10, the power forward was the ACC freshman of the year and led the conference in field goal percentage at 55.8 percent. Bosh's high school coach Leonard Bishop said the announcement at Lincoln is a tribute to the 2002 team that won a Class 4A and mythical national title. College underclassmen have until Monday to become early entry candidates for the NBA Draft. NCAA rules also allow underclassmen to retain their amateur status if they do not sign with an agent or are not drafted. Bosh said he's not signed with an agent, but a public relations firm has been retained to help with today's news conference.
  13. So this is what "I'm 110 percent sure I'm coming back to school" means. TJ Ford is a shorter version of Omar Cook that can't hit a jumper consistently. TJ Ford
  14. Wait until you read tommorrow's DMN. Then we'll see how much respect he gets. GMG

  19. He's slow, fat and over seven feet. That doesn't say much. Oh wait Greg Ostertag, Todd MacCullough, Jerome James and Eric Montross are still in the league and Bryant Reeves played five years. NBAdraft.net profile GMG
  20. If he'd come out after his sophomore year, he'd have been a top 5 pick. Now he'll be lucky to be a first round pick.
  21. Western's Chris Marcus Out For Season; Concludes College Career Senior leaves Hill with 1,113 points, 795 rebounds and records for blocks in a game, season and career. Feb. 5, 2003 BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - After a hard-fought battle to complete his rehabilitation in time to play effectively in the 2002-03 season, Western Kentucky All-America center Chris Marcus has concluded his collegiate playing career. The 7-1, 285-pounder out of Olympic High School in Charlotte, N.C., will heed the advice of his doctors and remain off his injured ankle for an extended period of time in order to get inflammation in the foot under control. He has visited specialists in Birmingham, Ala. (Dr. John Gould, the surgeon who operated on the ankle in June, 2002), California and Houston and, after conferring on their findings, they all agreed that the immediate step he needed to take in the recovery process was to take his weight off the affected foot. The injured bone continues to be inflamed and a source of pain that has prohibited him from playing basketball. The doctors, concerned about the overall health of the bone, have urged Marcus to take a cautious approach as he continues to rehabilitate the foot. After a stellar sophomore season (12.7 ppg and 12.1 rpg in 2000-01), Marcus suffered the original injury just before the start of the '01-02 season. He played in just 15 games that season - the Toppers' first five contests and the last 10 games of the year - averaging 15.9 points and 8.9 rebounds while playing in pain. Last spring he announced he would forego the NBA draft and return for his fourth season at WKU while also undergoing surgery on the injured foot and continuing his rehab. He played in just four games this season - Jan. 4 at Middle Tennessee, Jan. 9 at Arkansas-Little Rock, Jan. 11 at Arkansas State and Jan. 18 at home versus South Alabama. Marcus scored 12 points and came up with 12 rebounds in a total of 39 minutes of action. He completes his career on the Hill with 1,113 points and 795 rebounds. He owns Hilltopper records for blocked shots in a game (9 versus Tennessee State at home on Nov. 25, 2000), a season (97 in '00-01) and a career (214). "Chris has seen the experts and they have conferred to determine strategy," said Hilltopper Head Coach Dennis Felton. "They all want him to stay off the foot for an extended period of time and get the inflammation under control. Unfortunately, that means the end of his college career. Now, its time for Chris to move on to the next phase in his life. "I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to coach Chris," Felton continued. "He certainly has had a major impact on our basketball program and on the University. I wish him well in his recovery and we all look forward to seeing him enjoy a long and prosperous career in the NBA." Marcus plans to withdraw from school and return to Charlotte where he will continue his rehabilitation and prepare for a career as a professional basketball athlete.
