ASU says there are better things ahead [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
ASU says there are better things ahead Team hopes to carry momentum into NCAA Tournament Tuesday afternoon’s impromptu gathering of friends and fans of the Arizona State women’s basketball team at Sky Harbor Airport won’t be confused with parades thrown for the Suns in 1993 or the Diamondbacks last summer. But the well-wishers wanted to congratulate the team for what many consider to be the finest moment in the program’s history. ASU seniors Amanda Levens and Melody Johnson, on the other hand, weren’t overly concerned with how Monday’s shocking 70-63 upset of No. 2 Stanford in the title game of the inaugural Pac-10 women’s tournament plays out in school history. To them, the win was just a matter of taking care of business with better moments possibly ahead. "We had heard people asking us about at-large bids (for the NCAA women’s tournament)," Levens said. "We just decided to go out and win one for ourselves." Monday’s victory over Stanford assured the Sun Devils of a sp...
DePaul, Bradley looking for new coaches [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
DePaul, Bradley looking for new coaches It didn’t take long for the college basketball coaching vacancy signs to go up. Pat Kennedy of DePaul and Mack MaCarthy of Virginia Commonwealth resigned on Tuesday, while Jim Molinari of Bradley and Mel Hankinson of Liberty were fired. Massachusetts women’s coach Joanie O’Brien also was dismissed. VCU didn’t wait long to find a replacement for McCarthy, promoting 27-year-old assistant Jeff Capel III to head coach. ‘‘After 28 years of Division I coaching, I thought it might be time for me to make a change,’’ McCarthy said a day after the Rams (21-11) lost to North Carolina-Wilmington in the Colonial Athletic Association title game. The state of Illinois lost two coaches in Kennedy and Molinari. After a 9-19 season in which his Blue Demons failed to qualify for the Conference USA tournament, Kennedy resigned after five seasons and a disappointing 67-75 record. ‘‘I feel very strongly in my heart that I came to DePaul for all the right ...

Scottsdale doctor to travel for NASCAR [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
On Track Scottsdale doctor to travel for NASCAR The latest safety measure made by NASCAR since Dale Earnhardt’s death at Daytona last year is to form a team of traveling doctors. These doctors will, in effect, offer track doctors working NASCAR races second opinions. One of the six doctors named to this team is Paul Kozak, an emergency room physician at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Scottsdale. Kozak has an avid interest in race medicine and has served as an attending emergency room doctor, along with Dr. Dan Heller, at Phoenix International Raceway, so routinely that his name is stenciled on a parking spot at the infield care center. He’s been a race doctor since his residency in Indianapolis. He worked the Indy 500 races at the Brickyard in 1992 and 1993. "Before that I’d never been to a race," Kozak said. The racing bug bit Kozak differently than most. He has no interest in driving. "I’ve seen too many guys hit the wall. I’ve got a 1-year-old at home and I have to think...
Cards to have guests in town [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Cards to have guests in town Several big-name free agents to pay a visit to Tempe Arizona Cardinals coach Dave McGinnis promised his team would be bringing in some unrestricted free agents sooner rather than later, at least to see what kind of money they will be commanding. The parade begins today, when the Cards play host to Chicago cornerback Walt Harris, Miami tight end Hunter Goodwin and New Orleans defensive tackle La’Roi Glover. San Diego tight end Freddie Jones, Kansas City defensive tackle Derrick Ransom and Baltimore cornerback Duane Starks will come in Thursday. Glover, Starks and Jones figure to be asking for the biggest deals and all are arguably the best free agents available at their positions. All six players can address the Cards’ three most problematic spots. Among the Cards’ own free agents, both cornerback Corey Chavous and running back Michael Pittman said there have been preliminary discussions between their agents and the team but nothing specific y...
Chargers take one from Titans [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Chargers take one from Titans 6 th-inning insurance run turns out to be big for McClintock Arcadia was taken advantage of Tuesday afternoon. The one run McClintock scored without the benefit of a hit didn’t seem like much in the sixth inning, but it ended up being the difference in a 5-4 baseball victory by the Chargers over the host Titans. McClintock center fielder Walter Krause reached first base on a throwing error. He then advanced to second on a throwing error by first baseman Blair Brejtfus, whose errant toss back to the mound got by pitcher Bill Hornaday. "We didn’t execute as well as we should have’’ Arcadia coach Ken Rudolph said. Krause later scored on a throwing error by third baseman Andrew Reilly. That run gave McClintock a 5-1 lead with Arcadia left with just two more innings to catch the Chargers (5-3). The Titans (8-3) almost did. When McClintock starter and winner, Dan Armstrong, tired in the sixth, Arcadia scored one run to cut the lead to 5-2. Armstro...
History not on Sampras’ side [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Franklin Templeton notebook History not on Sampras’ side Scottsdale hasn’t been Pete Sampras’ best tournament, splitting six matches in four previous trips to the Franklin Templeton Classic and never getting past the second round. "I’ve always struggled a little bit here," Sampras said. "I can see my brother (Gus) over there squirming." Gus Sampras, in his first year as the Templeton tournament director after serving in other tourney capacities since 1996, breathed pretty easy Tuesday night, after Pete rolled in his first match, dominating Byron Black, 6-1, 6-2, in just 44 minutes. Sampras, the third seed and ranked 12 th in the world, hadn’t played a match since losing in the fourth round of the Australian Open in January, save for a Feb. 8 Davis Cup tie. "It’s confidence building," Sampras said. "I haven’t played a ton of matches. These are important. I want to stay sharp and get my game going." This tournament hasn’t been good for seeded players the past couple of y...
Sabercats lose top pitcher as Sloan quits [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Sabercats lose top pitcher as Sloan quits Tasha Sloan, probably the best pitcher in the state, has quit the Saguaro softball team. Sloan, who recorded 305 regular-season strikeouts last season, left the Sabercats Monday. "She said she needed to get a job," said Saguaro coach Stephanie Taylor. "I think the team is strong enough to go on, but we will miss her." In 166 regular-season innings last season, Sloan had an earned-run average of 0.30, while going 17-5. She helped lead the Sabercats to the 4A state semifinals. Taylor insisted there were no problems between Sloan, who was unavailable for comment, and the Sabercats’ coaching staff. "The circumstances were fine," said Taylor, in her second season as the Sabercats head coach. "With her and some of the players, I’m not sure. "All she told me was she needed to earn some money." This is not the first time Sloan has left Saguaro’s team. She also quit the team in her sophomore season, citing a hip problem. "I just hope this doe...
