Amato continues mastery of Seminoles


Florida State's defense was spent at the end of the Seminoles' 24-20 loss to N.C. State in Raleigh on Thursday night, according to a Tallahassee Democrat report.

Already thinned by injuries, defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews' group was worn down by the pounding from Wolfpack tailbacks Toney Baker and Andre Brown. And then, just about five minutes into the fourth quarter, the Seminoles' inexperienced secondary was exploited once again by second-time starter Daniel Evans, who threw three touchdown passes.

A touchdown pass to Jeron James left No. 16 FSU hoping for an offensive miracle. It wouldn't happen.

Wolfpack rover DeJaun Morgan cradled a pass intended for Brandon Warren that was tipped his way. Less than two minutes remained and the Wolfpack was able to run out the clock.

As the game ended, so for apparent practical purposes did FSU's pursuit of another ACC title. The Seminoles dropped to 1-2 in the ACC Atlantic Division and 3-2 overall.

N.C. State coach Chuck Amato, who argued there was no advantage in his having been a long-time assistant at Florida State, beat the Seminoles for the fourth time in seven games.

FSU finished with just 96 yards rushing. That meant that N.C. State's Brown, who starred at Greenville Rose High, had more rushing yards (119) than the Seminoles team.

ECU volleyball triumphs at home over UAB

East Carolina's volleyball team defeated Conference USA foe UAB 3-1 (33-31, 27-30, 30-27, 30-21) on Friday night at Minges Coliseum, according to an ECU athletic media relations release. ECU improved to 11-9 on the year and 2-4 in C-USA while UAB fell to 14-6, 2-3.

Kelley Wernert and Mignon Dubenion paced the Pirates, with Wernert tallying 20 kills and adding 12 digs for her ninth double-double of the season. Dubenion finished the night with 18 kills and six blocks. Heidi Krug also recorded a double-double with 52 kills and 12 digs. Libero Trish Monroe added 15 digs.

East Carolina returns to Minges Coliseum on Sunday afternoon for a 1:00 p.m. match with C-USA opponent Memphis.

Millican continues bid for spot on LPGA Tour

Former East Carolina standout golfer Adrienne Millican carded her third consecutive round of 74 (2-over-par) to move into a tie for 18th place at the Venice (FL) LPGA Sectional Qualifying Tournament at Plantation Golf and Country Club, according to an ECU athletic media relations release.

Millican was just three shots back off the top-10 with a 54-hole total of 222 (74-74-74). The two-time first-team All Conference-USA and C-USA All-Decade selection is vying to become a full member of the LPGA Tour.

The first two days, players competed on both the Bobcat and Panther courses at Plantation Golf and Country Club, playing each of the courses once before the 36-hole cut was made. The final two rounds are played on the Bobcat Course and the top-30 players and ties at the end of 72 holes will advance to the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., Nov. 29-Dec. 3.
