How convenient that in the last week of this column, we have probably our biggest week of the semester. We have the NBA and NHL playoffs, and, as I said last week, the most media-hyped event in the world, the NFL Draft (or Mel Kiper Invitational).
Spring is officially here. With baseball in full swing, the NFL Draft approaching and all kinds of winter sports playoffs, there's plenty to talk about. But, we'll start off with something none of us want to talk about.
A month ago, Army women's basketball coach Maggie Dixon found herself on top of the world. She was headed to her first NCAA tournament in her first season as a head coach against one of the greatest programs in the country, Tennessee.
Wow, what a week. Baseball is starting, basketball and hockey are ending, and the NFL draft is heating up. Tragedy, triumph and turmoil surrounded the week. But, at the end of the day, we still have two truths. and a lie.
Well, March is over, and with the start of the baseball season, spring is officially here. In a week filled with much drama and excitement, we saw champions crowned, new beginnings and depressing endings. Thus, this week's edition focuses on the difference between projections and reflections.
Tala Hadavi was recruited to AU as a transfer from Virginia Commonwealth to be the leader of a program that was headed for its first NCAA berth.
Wow, I'm a battered human, a shell of my former self, dead to the world, or any other pathetic clich? you can come up with for what happened to me and my bracket last weekend.
What would the third week of March be without a Final Four projection? Instead of the normal "Two Truths and a Lie," we're going to switch it up and go with simply the "Final Four Truths."
This week was all about shattered images. From Barry Bonds to Daunte Culpepper to Alfonso Soriano and the National Football League, professional and college sports are not having their finest day.
Trekking up to Worcester, Mass., for her team's Patriot League tournament game against Holy Cross, AU coach Melissa McFerrin knew exactly what her seventh-seeded Eagles needed to do to have any hope of scoring an upset: Hustle, play defense and keep the game in the 50s.
Fifty-four percent. That's what the Holy Cross Crusaders shot in their 74-55 drubbing of the AU women's basketball team two weeks ago. That kind of effort won't get it done when the Eagles travel to Worcester, Mass., to play Holy Cross in the first round of the Patriot League Tournament Thursday night.
The doldrums of February are over and the ides of March are set to begin, starting this weekend with the college basketball conference tournaments. With the Olympics through, it's on to the bigger and better, with March Madness highlighting the sports calendar.
Someone forgot to give the AU freshmen on the women's basketball team the memo: Tuesday night was Senior Night. The frosh mob of Tish Curry, Talicia Jackson, Sahar Nusseibeh, Nicole Ryan and Pam Stanfield turned Tuesday's celebration of the veterans into a coming-out party for the first-year Eagles in an 89-81 overtime victory over Patriot League-rival Navy.
I'll be honest. I've talked down on Turin's version of the Olympics as much as anyone, but even with no one watching, it's dominated headlines for the last week-and-a-half. In honor of that, this week's edition is based soley on the spectacle taking place in the Alps.
The AU women's basketball team lost Saturday to the Holy Cross Crusaders, 74-55, at Bender Arena, falling to 3-9 in the Patriot League.
Folks, the Olympics are underway (I know, I know, you're part of the entire earth's population that isn't watching) and already these games are more about who's gone (Apolo Anton Ohno, Michelle Kwan and Bode Miller) rather than who's there (a flying tomato, another Sarah Hughes and a hot ice dancer).
What it rains, it pours. And on Sunday, it poured for the AU women's basketball team against the Colgate Raiders, as it lost, 72-63, at Bender Arena.
The AU women's basketball team lost, 73-38, to the Bucknell Bison at Sojka Pavilion Tuesday night to fall to 3-6 in the Patriot League.
Right after the Super Bowl, every sports fan goes into hibernation until March Madness starts in about a month. For college students, it's much the same. We have one month of boredom before the thrill of spring break and the end of the year right after that.
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Some days will go down in history as program-changing days. On Saturday, the AU women's basketball team may have had one of them as it beat the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, 75-68, at Stabler Arena for its second road victory of the Patriot League season.
