ECU golfer shares C-USA honor


East Carolina's Lene Krog was named Conference USA women's co-golfer of the week on Wednesday afternoon by league officials for the week ending March 28. This marks the second time she has received the honor, having earlier been awarded the accolade on Sept. 21.

The freshman from Leir, Norway, shared the honor with Christina Wentworth of UAB. Krog placed fourth at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic on the strength of a 71 in the final round, while Wentworth earned medalist honors at the UC Spring Invitational.

UAB's Johnson to face Globetrotters

UAB senior guard Squeaky Johnson has been selected to participate in the 2006 NABC College All-Star game Friday night at Conseco Fieldhouse as part of the Final Four festivities. It marks the first such selection for a UAB player.

"Having only scored seven or eight points per game for my career, it goes to show you that you don't have to be a scorer to be recognized as one of the best players in the country," Johnson said. "It also shows you that defense and leadership are also qualities that make players standout. I'm glad I've been selected, especially considering I did it a little different way than some other players."

Johnson and the college all-star team will take on the Harlem Globetrotters at 8 p.m. tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Johnson is a finalist for the 2006 Bob Cousy Award for the nation's top collegiate point guard. That award will be announced in Indianapolis on Monday.

Rockne to be remembered across the globe

Today marks the 75th anniversary of the death of former Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne in a plane crash in Bazaar, Kan., and the anniversary will be marked — from Kansas to the Notre Dame campus to Norway — in a handful of ways, past, present and future:

  • Near Bazaar, KS, where Rockne's plane went down, the Wichita (KS) Rockne Memorial Club will host a special memorial service at 10:00 a.m. CST, Friday, at the crash site.

  • Family members of the eight men who were killed in the crash will be on hand. Students, alumni, staff, friends, family and fans of Notre Dame and Rockne are invited to attend.

  • In Voss, Norway, Rockne's birthplace, a statue of Rockne will be dedicated Friday at the exact time Rockne's plane crashed into the Kansas hillside 75 years earlier. The statue, sculpted by 1962 Notre Dame graduate Jerry McKenna, is identical to the one that was dedicated in March 2005 in front of the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend.

  • On the Notre Dame campus, there will be multiple showings Friday of a 52-minute video documentary on Rockne titled, "Knute Rockne and His Fighting Irish" to recognize the anniversary of the Hall of Fame coach's passing. The video originally was shown on the PBS show "The American Experience."
