Par-Bil's Tipoff: Longwood Finishes Second

|"holo credit .Jucll wemi

The Longwood Players have yet another success in their production of "Pygmalion."

Adolescent Control Topic Of Research By TODD M. HALEY As an Assistant Professor here at Longwood and a clinical psychologist. Dr. David B. Stein has written a book. Controlling the Difficult Ado lescent The R.E.S.T. Program The R.E.S.T. (Real Economy System for Teens) program is "intended to put the brakes on the difficult ado lescent so that more traditional communicative and cognitive methods have a better chance of succeeding," writes Dr. Stein. The four basic Home rules of the program are hygiene, chores, verbal and physical abuse, and safety. "Hygiene simply stated means clean room, clean kid by a specific time each day states Stein. Stein believes that on weekdays the specific time should be before going to school, and on weekends, allowances for sleeping in should be made. Once the time is set. Stein says to stick to it with no exceptions. "One of the best things we

can do for our children is to teach them to take care of themselves." believes Stein. Stein recommends that we teach children and teenagers basic skills, such as shopping, cleaning, paying bills, and doing the household budget. The chore rule means that the teenager is to do at least one major chore and several minor chores each day of the week." Stein comments. Verbal abuse is common among teenagers and though physical abuse is rare, it does happen, says Stein; Verbal abuse or physical abuse should not be allowed to continue. Stein recommends that for safety reasons, teenagers should have a set curfew each day; "I have little trouble with a 12:30 a.m. or 1:00 a.m. time limit on Friday or Saturday." Level I of the program consists of a daily allowance pro(Contlnued on page 4)

By HOKE CURRIE The 1990 Par-Bil's Tip-Off Tournament was a series of highs and lows for the Longwood basketball team. Unfortunately for the Lancers, the "low" part came In the second half of the championship game. After breezing past outmanned Mercy College 87-47 in the tourney opener Friday night, the Lancers made Just six of 30 field goal attempts (20 percent) in the second half of the title tilt, enabling Lenoir-Rhyne to come back from an eight-point halftime deficit and take a 64-55 victory. The Bears, pre-tourney favorites in the minds of many, also landed four spots on the six-player all-tournament team (see below). Lenoir-Rhyne had advanced to the finals with a 75-69 win over Francis Marion Friday night. Finishing third in the eighth Par-Bil's tourney were the Patriots, who routed Mercy 76-50 in the consolation game Saturday night. A big "high" for the Lancers came in the first half of Saturday's title game. Playing with great intensity. Longwood stormed out to a 23-8 lead as seniors Keith Latlmer and Greg Holloway dominated the inside. Holloway scored nine of the Lancers' first 23 points and Latimer had four. Longwood had a 27-16 edge on the boards by halftime. Holloway ended the first half with 12 points and seven rebounds, but failed to score the rest of the way. Latimer had 10 of his 13 points in the opening period. Senior guard Billy Dunn was tops in scor-

ing for the game with 16 points, but made Just five of 20 shots from the floor. "All in all. we did pretty well to stay in the championship game while shooting Just 31 percent. For us to take the next step up we have to be able to concentrate for longer periods of time and get something out of each possession. We need to be more consistent over the whole game, rather than (trying to win it) all at once." In Friday's opener Letts canned four of six 3-polnters in the first half enroute to a career high 14 points. He also led the squad with eight rebounds. Joining him in double figures were Dunn with 12 points, Bryan Weaver with 10 points and six rebounds and freshman Reggie Turner with 13 points. Turner, who suffered a mouth injury Saturday night, hit five of six shots from the floor and three of four free throws. Longwood led 49-22 at the half. All 12 Lancer cagers played nine or more minutes in the contest. In the championship game Weaver had an amazing nine rebounds in Just 10 minutes of action, but failed to score. Next up for Longwood is the Alabama-Huntsvllle Arby's Tournament Friday and Saturday in Huntsville. The Lancers play Columbus in the opening round while UAH takes on Berry. Next Monday night at 7:30. Longwood will host Virginia Wesleyan. Four of six spots on the Par-Bil's Tip-Off All-Tour nament team belonged to tourney champ Lenoir-Rhyne. Point guard Jody Petty, who

had 24 points. 11 assists and seven steals In the two games, was voted the Most Valuable Player. Bear teammates John Jones (26 points. 13 rebounds). Keith Clarke (24 points, 11 rebounds) and Jason Coleman (29 points. 7 reboundsjalso made All-Tournament. Lenlor-Rhyne chipped away at the early 15-point deficit behind the play of alltournament choices Jody Petty. Keith Clarke. Jason Coleman and John Jones. By halftime. the Bears trailed by Just 37-29. Just before the half. Lancer guard Joe Lowe, twisted his ankle after attempting a free throw. Lowe, the team's floor general, sat out the entire second half because of the injury, crippling Longwood's offense. He should be able to play this week. "Joe would have made a big difference for us. particularly on key possessions in the second half." said Lancer coach Ron Carr. "We missed his ex perience. Joe get the ball to the right man at the proper time." It was Lenoir-Rhyne which dominated inside play in the second half. The Bears outscored Longwood 15-3 in the first five minutes of the half, turning an eight-point deficit into a 44-40 lead. The Lancers never led again as shot after shot clanged off the rim. A Dunn 3-pointer tied the count at 48-48 with 6:15 to go but the victors quickly regained the edge. With the Bears shutting down the inside. Dunn and Continued on Page 7

COMMENTARY A Cry For Freedom

By ANTHONY TASSA Junior The American people are once again being told by the government of the United States that war may be necessary in order to preserve the freedoms and liberties which democracy allows. Once again, American men and women are being sent to a far away land with the possibility that war could break out at any moment plainly staring them in the faces. Lives may be lost, dreams shattered, and mountains of humanity may crumble, toppling endlessly into the void, but for what purpose may these things occur? Where is the fight and what is it all about? When the United States entered World War II. the rea son was clearly to fight against a power that had attacked our territory and certainly threatened freedom and liberty in every way. We were fighting against the powers of fascism and the evils of an insane madman. Korea and Viet Nam were wars, clouded by mystery, shrouded in the label "Police action." and (here was no clear-cut purpose for our presence in either of those places other than the idea that we were fighting against communist aggression, protecting us from the possibility of the

domino effect theory becoming reality. We were reacting to the paranoia created by a senator and his witch hunt; his inquisition. There has even been talk that war profiteering by high ranking United States officials played a major role in both conflicts and many, many lives were lost. If history has taught us anything, it has taught us that we should learn from our mistakes. There was no clearcut purpose for Korea or Viet Nam and the only things that emerged from them were madness and murder. We are now faced with the Persian Gulf situation and the only reason that has been clearly stated for our being there is to preserve the interests of fat, sloppy. slovenly, disgustingly greedy individuals who. through their manipulation of the puppet government of the United States, would rather risk the lives of a few thousand American soldiers than give up the weekend trip to Palm Springs. We may face war so that the aristocracy of our country does not have to suffer a financial setback. Human life is being placed in lower standing than the almighty dollar. In a time when the socalled adults of this country are too concerned with the

price of gas. and the possibility of a recession, we are seeing what spineless creatures the thirty-something, wonder years generation has spawned. They have decided that it is more important to keep the BMW running with a full tank of inexpensive gasoline than to give young Americans a chance at a free and happy life, as was the hope of our forefathers and the cause for which they gave their lives. The time has come and something must be done by the youth of this nation. We must remember our freedom, our lives, our friend's lives, our brothers already in the gulf, those that gave their lives in the past, and our country's future, and if the only people that will benefit from an invasion of the Persian Gulf are those that care for nothing other than money and themselves, it must end now! We must not sit passively still! Complacency will only lead to the annihilation of thousands of young Americans! We. the younger generation, must accept what has become our fight and stand up for our rights as individuals. Before we go wandering into the valley of the shadow of death to fight a war that means nothing to us. we must understand

The ROTUNDA thoroughly what our purpose Is. Should we willingly be the pawns of a government ruled by the rich of this country? Should we play puppet for those that desire money over anything else? If every American were willing to sacrifice a little of their fi nanclal standing and share with others, would there even be a need for our presence in the Persian Gulf? Many people argue that it is a matter of preserving na tional freedom and worldwide security from the clutches of an insane madman. If this is the case, and this is the only reason for our presence over there, then we should support our brothers in this cause, but if money plays a single part in this sit uation the conflict must be sorely condemned. If our presence in the Persian Gulf is merely to support the financial interests of the rich est of the American population, then the time has come for the youth to take a stand and rise up against the powers that be. All red. yellow, black, and white, united as one. hoping for a better and freer, unified country where all have equal opportunities and the whims and desires of the reigning money-mongers have no influence over the political thinkers of the country.

SPORTS Lady Lancers Split Games Courtesy of Public Affairs The Longwood women's basketball team split a pair of games last weekend In their opening contests of the season when they traveled to Shippensburg University (Pa.) to participate in the Shippensburg Tip-Off Tournament. Friday afternoon, Longwood lost the opening game to Pace University (N.Y.) 70 67. but rebounded on Saturday with a 108-45 drubbing of Concordia College (N.Y.). As is the case with most tournaments, the home team arranged the brackets to their own advantage. Shippensburg played host to Concordia. 120 last season, in the first round, and matched Longwood with Pace, a team that posted a 23-7 record last year under the direction of new head coach Allison Jones. Despite the loss of four starters to graduation. Pace still posed a considerable threat. The loss of four of their starters didn't mean anything to me," commented head coach Shirley Duncan. "All the players the pace coach returned had lots of playing time last season. "I really thought Pace was going to be a tough game. Any team we play from the north is usually aggressive and hard nosed, and Pace proved that again." With the exception of junior Teresa Carter and senior co captain Carmille Barnette. Longwood was simply dismal the first half. Carter shot 3-6 from the floor and Barnette sunk 6-10 including two three pointers. The two accounted for 22 of Longwood's

32 halftime points. The remainder of the team recorded an embarrassing 18 percent from the floor for an overall team total of 34.2 percent for the half. Red-hot Pace dropped in 62.1 percent of their shots. "We missed a lot of easy shots today." said Duncan. "Some players were Just not as productive today as they usually are. We must iiave a third or fourth player in dou ble figures (in order to win]." Other than Barnette. who was 11-19 from the floor. 3-4 from behind the three-point arc. and 7-8 from the freethrow line, junior co-captain Salene Green was the only other player in double figures, scoring 12 points. Longwood trailed the Lady Setters 32-41 at halftime. but closed to within one with 2:30 remaining in the game. A string of fouls and a traveling call allowed Pace to rebuild the lead to six points with only 10 seconds remaining. A last second 3-pointer by Barnette set the margin of victory at three points. "I'm not disappointed." concluded Duncan, "but I'm not happy with the fact that we didn't take charge of the game. We gave up too many fast break points. "The coaches are still learning a lot about this team and the character of the individuals. When we know what each can give, we'll play better as a team. But we can't give up games while we're learning." The loss to Pace meant Longwood would be matched against Concordia. who lost to Shippensburg in Friday's second game. Concordia, a team that posted a 1-20

record last year, was Shlppensburg's ticket to the championship game and an almost certain victory ior Longwood in the consolation bracket. Shippensburg eventually lost the championship game to Pace 67-59. At the final buzzer, the Lady Lancers had posted a new single game record for points, defeating the Lady Clippers 108-45. Longwood's previous high of 104 points was recorded twice, once against North Carolina Wesleyan and once against Bennett, both during the 1988-89 season.
