ECU-Maryland rainout spawns Sunday twinbill


East Carolina and Maryland were rained out of their scheduled baseball game on Saturday afternoon and will play a doubleheader at Clark-LeClair Stadium beginning at 11 a.m. today.

ECU season ticket holders can use Game Three tickets for admission to both games. Those who purchased individual tickets for Game Two may exchange them at the ticket office for Game Three tickets. Gates will open at 9:30 a.m.

ECU started the season with a 6-1 win over the Terps on Friday.

Spurrier staff undergoes renovations

South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier has announced several coaching assignment changes.

The Gamecocks earlier worked out a buyout agreement on the contract of former East Carolina coach John Thompson, whose duties as defensive coordinator had been adjusted during the 2005 season.

Tyrone Nix will remain as the defensive coordinator and will coach the inside linebackers. Last season, Nix was a co-defensive coordinator with Thompson and worked with the defensive line.

David Reaves has been given the title of Recruiting Coordinator in addition to his duties as assistant quarterbacks coach.

Ron Cooper has been given the additional title of assistant head coach and will move from linebackers coach to secondary coach.

Dave Wommack will switch from the secondary to the outside linebackers, while Fred Chatham will be the special teams coordinator in addition to coaching the tight ends.

Sutton misses game after auto accident

Oklahoma State head basketball coach Eddie Sutton was home Saturday afternoon after being released from the Stillwater (OK) Medical Center.

He was admitted Friday evening following an automobile accident while traveling to the airport for a trip to College Station, TX, for a game at Texas A&M.

Sutton suffered no serious injuries and will continue to recover from bumps, bruises and lacerations suffered in the accident.

“It is good to be home, although I would rather be with my team in College Station,” Sutton said. “I am certainly with them in spirit and I’m counting on them winning today, which is the best medicine I could receive. I plan on rejoining the team as soon as possible."

The hoped for medicine turned out to have a bitter taste as Texas A&M edged the Cowboys 46-44 on Saturday.

Throng flocks to Lambeau for college hockey

The No. 4 Wisconsin hockey team skated to a 4-2 victory over Ohio State in front of 40,890 fans Saturday afternoon in the Frozen Tundra Hockey Classic at historic Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers.

The contest, which also served as the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game, drew the fourth-largest crowd ever for a hockey game and the second-largest crowd for a college hockey game.

Weather conditions were better than had been expected. The temperature at the opening faceoff was 28 degrees with winds out of the west at seven miles per hour.
