The AU Sports report: First, the bad news. The women's volleyball team lost to South Carolina. 30-10, that first game just looks ghastly. But since only one senior graduates, the core of the team should keep getting better. The outlook for 2003 looks bright! (Full disclosure: I do live on the same floor as three members of the team. However, the analysis is only biased in the fact that I am an AU fan, but if they sucked, I'd be bashing them. But they don't.)
As for the better news (hopefully), it's a basketball weekend! The men's basketball team opens with a game against Radford, which if you'll recall, just lost to EAST CAROLINA 87-42. East Carolina. The Eagles had better win this game. Then, women's basketball takes over Bender for the AU Tip-Off Classic. AU plays Eastern Michigan Saturday at 3 PM and Maryland-Eastern Shore Monday at 5 PM (An EMU-UMES game is on Sunday). After the UMES-AU game comes the second men's Eagle home game, vs. Howard in what should be a tight game.
Have an Eagle weekend!
Also, since I'm a DPA shill, I would be remiss not to note the AU Chamber Singers performance this weekend. 8 pm Saturday and 3 pm Sunday in the Metropolitan Memorial Church (across the street, next to the Nebraska lot). Pieces by Bach and a Handel's Messiah sing-along. GO! I SAID GO!!!!!
