Taylor upsets 8th-ranked CHCA 50_-49

1'l1P Cincinnati Buquirer

Alex Thinnes sank a free throw with 40 seconds remaining, giving Taylor a 50-49·victory over previously undefeated Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy at Taylor. CHCA, ranked No. 8 in the Enquirer's poll, had gone into a stall in the fourth quarter with 4:30 remaining and holding a two-point lead. But the Eagles turned over the ball and the Yellowjackets capitalized to tie the game 47-47. Tim Kroeger then sank two Taylor free throws before Thinnes went on to provide the clincher.

Seesholtz added 18 points. But game-high scoring honors went to Summit junior center Nick Dyer, who had 29 points. SUMMIT COUNTRY DAY {57) - Falconi 11 4, Sheldon 3 2 9. Ojer 11 729.

The Newport Central

Catholic boys basketball team received its first wake-up call of the season last week, and it was like standing next to the city's World Peace Bel. NewCath (12-3) dropped from first to second behind Covington Catholic in the Enquirer's Northern Kentucky coaches poll and likely will fall from third place in ilie state. The Thoroughbreds lost to Scott and Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park last week. It's not the kind of momen-

tum coach Ron Dawn wanted going into this week's Ninth Region All "A" tountament at Dayton, but he isn't worried. "We didn't play our best, and (Scott and PRP are) two pretty good teams," Dawn said. "We're not going to panic." NewCath is the (1efending state small-school and Ninth Region boys champion. The Throroughbreds open against Calvary Christian at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Area's best continue to carve path to state meet District meets this weekend By Chris Yeager · Enqttt'rerconhibtttor

Cincinnati area wrestlers continue their march to Columbus at district tournaments this weekend. Kings' John Velez (112 pounds), Lakota West's Matt Mcintire (~35), Fairfield's Mike Wahoff (145), and Lakota East's Hetag Pliev (171) still have unblemished records in Division I, as does Reading's D,J. Engel in Division III. Led by Nick Spatola, Elder is hoping to place a number of wrestlers into the state meet the next weekend. Seven Panthers qualified for the district tournament.

Winton Woods' Ian Ruth might get another opportunity to take on Wahoff, who beat Ruth in the final seconds of their Coaches' Classic final in December. Moeller, Harrison, Fairfield and Dayton Carroll probably will battle for the · Division I team title. The tournament is held at Fairfield High School. · Moeller qualified· 11 wrestlers in taking the St. Xavier sectional last weekend. Harrison qualified 10 while winning the Fairfield sectional. Runner-up to Harrison, Fairfield· has 11 district qualifiers, the same as Dayton Carroll. • Moeller coach Jeff Gaier downplayed the Crusaders' role as tourney favorites. "You never know at this

Elder's Nick Spatola, right, leads his team into the district meet this weekend. 'We need a little help," Meinking · said of the Cavaliers' team chances.

"Haying 40 teams spreads out the points and that can help us." Reading and Madeira have been fighting it out all season. Reading won the Cincinnati Hills League title, while Madeira won the sectional crown. Reading coach Dick Engel predicts a very competitive race for the Division III district meet at Xenia High School. "Brookville is a little down this year. Carlisle won its sectional but it was a bit weak," Engel said. ''We. and Madeira have a good shot." Madeira qualified 11 wrestlers to the district meet, with Readingc placing 10.

l··wmton Woods is ne

Princeton By Carey Hoffman Enquirer contributor

The pressure of tournament basketball brought out the best in different ways for a pair of Princeton players Friday night - Chris Brown and Jarrell Williams. Brown was the rock under the foundation of Princeton's 72-61 first-round victory over Woodward in a firstround sectional game at Lakota West. Williams' late heroics did away wlt·h any . chance that Princeton would wilt under the last-minute

pressure. "I' 111 happy witlr. how we fought them off when (Woodward) came back,'' said Princeton coach Paul Andrews. "Tonight taught us a little how to overcome pressure." Princeton, 10-11, advances to. a meeting with unbeaten Enquirer Division I coaches poll champion Winton Woods on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Miami's Millett Hall. Princeton opened an 18-3 lead in the first 6:15 of the game, then kept the lead at no less than eight points

heading into the. final quarter. But Woodward cut into the lead by picking up the aggressiveness in its full-court press!lre. A pair of Keoni Watson free throws after he made a steal got Wood:ward to within 52-4 7 with 5:39 · left to· play. The lead was down to four 53-49 on a steal and layup by Woodward's Alex Armstrong. But after Woodward came up einpty on two possessions, Princeton's Brown picked up a loose ball. that leaked over to him out of a

scramble in the paint and layed it in. That put Princeton up six at 55-49 with 3:33 to play and took away Woodward's momentum. "Three of our guys got hands on that ball," Woodward coach Jim Leon said. "That basket hurt us." "The credit on the basket belongs to Derrick (Jones)," Brown said. "He hustled and went to the floor to get that ball. I just picked it up and put it in the basket." It was one of the few times all night that ]3rown

wasn't the catalyst· for good things happening under the basket for Princeton. The 6-foot-4 Brown battled 6-8 Woodward junior B.J. Walker all night and came away with career-highs of 18 points and 13 rebounds. It was left to Williams, a freshman who averages about six points per game, to put Woodward away down the stretch. Afte·r Princeton beat Woodward's pressure down the floor, he 'hit a wideopen 3-pointer with 2:40 to play to build the lead back to nine points. Two possessions

SARASOTA, Fla. - Ken Griffey Jr. will hit third .for the Reds this year. Almost everything else about their batting order is subject to tinkering. Manager Bob Boone, who used 152 different lineups in 161 games with the Kansas City Royals in 1996; said Friday that he wants to leave spring training with two or three lineups he can use to counter various types of opposing pitchers.

Boone cited the following candidates for each spot in the order, from one through eight: Ill 1 - Barry Larkin, Alex Ochoa. II 2 - Larkin, Dmitri Young, Michael :rucker. Ill 3- Griffey. Ill 4 ~Sean Casey, Ochoa, Young.

11!1 5 - Casey (if he bats ,cleanup, Ochoa and Young ;also are options who Boone didn't mention). 1111 6, 7 & 8 - A combination of Aaron Boone, Pokey Reese and Jason LaRue. Boone couldn't guarantee that the order will jell during exhibition season. "Not everybod:/s g()ing to

rules to do it. Fines are deducted from players' paychecks. ','We don't want to step on any more toes,'' Warner said. "They might fine me for that, too." JAGUARS: Runmng back Fn;d Taylor, both~red by a brwsed leg, worked wtth the first team in practice, but coach Tom Coughlin wasn't sure he would play Sunday against Cincinnati.

McNabb The Associated Press NEW YORK - DonMw McNabb may be one of the leading candidates for the NFL's MVP award. But the fans, players and coaches who vote for the Pro Bowl consider him only the fourth-best quarterback in the NFC. The Philadelphia QB, who has been a one-man offense for a team that is 10-5 and has clinched a playoff berth· after going 8-24 the past two seasons, was the most conspicuous absentee. in the Pro Bowl voting, announced Thursday. . He finished as the first alternate behind Minnesota's Daunte Culpepper, San Francisco's Jeff Garcia and St. Louis' Kurt Warner. Warner missed 5% games with an injury and threw four interceptions in his first game back, while Garcia, who has had a breakout year, plays for a team that is 5-9. "I think Donovan is the best quarterback in the league,'' said Chad Lewis, the Eagles' little-known tight end, who made the NFC team. McNabb's absence was one of several quirks in the Pro Bowl voting, which annually has strange selections and absentees. This time: Ill! Mike Alstott; among an NFChigh eight Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected (Tennessee led· the AFC with eight), was chosen as the fullback, even though he plays running back. 1111 Brian Griese of Denver was selected as one of the AFC quarterbacks, along with Oakland's Rich · Gannon, who will start. aJ'ld India: napolis' Peyton Manlling. Griese, who was having an year, has been out since Nov. with a shoulder separation.

, CANTON - The thrill of ;victory never seems to grow ' old for the St. Xavier swim~ming team. ;. Immediately following the :final event, the Bombers ···broke into a victory celebra.~tion while the big following ' 'of fans cheered from· the : grandstand. .. If St. X coach Jim Brower's assessment is on target, the Bombers will emerge as the 2001 national champi'ons, their first national title since 1992. "They'll take

Kauscher is the first swimmer from Anderson to win a state championship· since Ja. son Druso brought home the gold. in the freestyle. A consensus All-American, . Cn1mer was outstanding. The Stanford-bound swimme!' won the 200 individual · medley Friday and dominated the 100 backstroke Saturday in a record time of 47.65. "I was going for the national record but fell short," Cramer said. "Winning the 200 freestyle relay motivat~ ed me. I'm happy with the state record, but it's not where I wanted to be." There's no doubt that the emergence of Leassner, a senior, has been one of the keys for the Bombers, who lost seniors to

mythical race," Brower said. "We needed to beat Gack· sonville, Fla.) Bolles' times in the relays, and we did it tonight." . St. Xavier won seven state . championships overall, the most since 1972. The state title was St. Xavier's 23rd since the 1969-70 season, the year Keating Natatorium opened. , Max 'Leassner and Jayme Cramer led St. X, as both won two individual state ·championships. Leassner came through in the 200 freestyle Friday and the 100 freestyle Saturday. Rob Kauscher was the on· ly non-St. Xavier swimmer to win a state championship. Anderson's Kauscher, bound for Ohio State, recorded a personal-best 57.54 to win the 100 breaststroke. He qualified in 57.69, which was his best until the' finals. . "I would have liked to go faster tonight," Kauscher said, "I knew I was behil;d ·after 50 (yards), but l want· .ed to go out smooth and save something for the end. I just :got there." ·

"I we had lost a lot of talent, and after last season, I decided to dedicate myself to swimming," Leassuer said. "I don't have any college offers as yet, but my performance should help me.'' The outcome of the 100 freestyle was never in doubt after Leassner swam the first 50 yards in 21.50, opening up a body length lead over Andy Swonger from Springfield North. He closed in 23.67 to win 1going away. As a junior, Leassner was sevnnth at the state meet in the 100 freestyle and eighth in the 50 freestyle, performances that are now forgotten. , "I was undefeated in the 100 this season," Leassner said. "But Jayme (Cramer) beat me early in the season in the 200 freestyle. w "Max was not only the difference for himself but for the team this year," Brower said. "He was the enforcer on the team and made everybody do what they had to be successful.''

· CANTON - Depth, lead-. ,ership and team chemistry are the ingredients most important in winning a state :championship. The Ursuline girls swimming team fit the description perfectly. ~ Rallying behind double in-

·dividual winners Tami Ransom and Whitney Myers, · outstanding depth and team unity, coach Tim Beerman's Lions won a second consecu·tive Division I state championship at C. T. Branin Natatorium. Ursuline finished with 322 ·points. St. Ursula was sec·and with 191. Oak Hills was fourth (162). Indian Hill finished fifth in Division IL "We won six state championships, which ties a school record, and we scored the :most points," Beerman said. ."Our depth was important. We qualified :14 swimmers and all competed very well."

The only non-Ursuline winner Saturday was Tiffany Clay. The Mount Notre Dame sophomore won the 100 breaststroke in 1:06.25, ahead of Massillon Jackson junior Erika Templeton (1:06.38). En route to the championship, the senior Ransom set an Ursuline record. She finished her high school career witfn 12 state championships, six ill. relays and six in individu:al events. . Erin Phenix, a 1999 graduate., held the record of 10. Ransom swam brilliantly in the 100 freestyle. The Stanford-bound Ransom went out in 24.56 and closed the final 50 yards in 26.32 (50.88) to defend the state championship she won last year in 50.87. "Tami had a fantastic dis~ tri~t and was · shooting to break records here," Beerman said. "She will still swim some personal best times at the Senior National meet next month." · · Oak.

yean. Jenkins, a left-handed hitter, is expected to bat third this .season and Sexson, a right-handed batter, will hit cleanup. "Our fans deserve the best players that we can put on the field for them as we move into the Miller Park era," general manager Dean Taylor said. "Richie and Geoff are both not only outstanding young players but also great

citizens and personalities for ouv fans to enjoy." The Brewers were relatively• quiet over the winter except for signing free agent center fielder Jeffrey Hammonds to a three-. year, $21million deal. Jenkins has a .291 career bat-. ting average with 64 homers and 204 RBI in 354 major-league games. Last year he emerged as one of the NL's best defensive

outfielders, recording 12 assists and becoming a fan favorite with a· knack for making spectacular diving catches. Sexson has a .271 career aver-~ age with 72 homers and 242 RBI: over 336 major league games. He drove in a career-high 116 runs for Cleveland in 1999. "These contracts reflect our"' commitment to both of these play-"' ers," Taylor said.

near deal Bnqui·rer news services ·Perennial Gold Glove shortstop Omar Vizquel, who has grumbled iri'the past about being underpaid coJnpared to other shortstops, sqjg he is close to signing a contract extension with the Cleveland Indians. "~'.''(he deal is almost done," he s<iiil Saturday after finishing his fq'~t spring training workout. "I think in the next week or two, something will get done. I'm real happy about it." ~.Vizquel, who has won eight st~(iight Gold Gloves, is signed

tlg'qugh at $3 million a.the year.2002 season . :;,The salaries of other shortstops have skyrocketed si11ce · the contract Vizquel signed in; 1995. ;.During the offseason, Alex Rodriguez signed a $252 million contract with the Texas Rangers and Derek Jeter signed a $189 million deal to stay with the New York Yankees. Both are for 10 years. ·:"'My contract looks like a minor-league deal compared to those," Vizquel said. "It's not like l'rtr.making 3 cents. I get a good clteck, but it looks small compared tO' the others." •Nizquel, who will tum 33 in April, hopes the extension will carry him near the end of his ca'reer. -·Vizquel made three errors in 648 total chances in 2000 for a 9!L5 fielding percentage, the secona highest total of all time. . Ill Chuck Finley, who had arthrpscopic surgery. on his right knee in January, threw off the motind for the first time Saturday. "He was gqing to throw eight mihutes and threw for 13," pitch.. ing coach Dick Pole said. "He threw all his pitches and said his knee felt fme." ORIOLES: Baltimore right-hander Ryan Kohlmeier and: outfielder Luis Matos signed one-year contracts. '"·Kohlmeier recorded 13 saves in. l4 opportunities last season, second arri.ong major-league rookies, after he was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on july 28-!•He finished 0-1 with a 2.39 ERAin 25 games for tlie Orioles. :;;RED SOX: Rod Beck wants to;,be a closei, but Derek Lowe fi_U!?; that role for the team. He earns $4.5 million, a high price fo'r' a setup man. And he missed hiM of last season with a neck hi}ti'ry. "'But the Red Sox picked up his•·contract option. So Beck, one· of the National League's best closers of the 1990s is back at,spring training, where Boston is.,c_ounting on him as part of one of, ,the top bullpens in baseball. ''We're basically going out there with the same guys we haa; and I think you've got to liRe that," Beck said. ·· The relievers include Rich Garces, Hipolito Pichardo, Beck and·Lowe. Pichardo's 3.46 ERA was the worst of the three. Beck was. 3-0 with a 3.10 ERA in 34 apj5¢arances. :TWINS: Outfielder jacque Jo'iies and two other players agreed to one-year contracts sat'Urday. ':Jones batted .285 with 19 hb'tlte runs .and 76 RBI for the Twins last season. He led the club in homers and was third in RBT. He was selected by the Twfus in the second round of the.1996 free agent draft. Catcher Danny Ardoin · hit .125 with one double, one·home run and five RBI in 15 games for the Twins last season. WHITE SOX: Unhappy Frank Thomas skipped his fourth straight ·spring training workout and manager Jerry Manuel said the team would prepare for· the season without him. . Manuel said he'd use veteran non-roster invitee Harold Baines as a backup at first base and designated hitter. Players are required to be in camp Tuesday before they can be fined. DODGERS: Jim Morris, the teacher-turned-reliever whose amazing comeback after a 10year layoff inspired a Disney movie, announced his retirement Saturday at age 37 because of tendinitis in his left shoulder.

rebound the ball," Huggins said Monday. "Not even my first year here or my first year at Aluon or my first year at Walsh." He has one now, even with a pair of 6-foot-11 centers and a 6·0 forward. Long an advocate of an offense that pounds the ball inside, he has designed his .offense this year around his strength guards Steve Logan and Kenny Satterfield. Resigned to the unfathomable development that his big guys can't rebound, he has devised a way to negate that disadvantage by focusing on taking' care of the bail. UC committed only 18 turnovers in three Conference USA Tournament games last week . . The Bearcats were outrebounded by 33 in those games, but c.ompensated with a turnover differential of plus-22 to win two of the three games. Huggins won't say this is the least talented team he's had at UC, not with C-USA Player of the Year Logan and McDonald's All-American Satterfield playing guard. But· it's certainly the least talented he's had since those first two years. "It has the least amount of athleticism," he said. "That first year, with Banks and Robinson and Starks on the front line, that's twice as athletic as what we have now. We're just not very explosive, whi~Ch would be all right if we had skill in there, but we just can't throw it in and score." A .UC win against Brigham Young in its first-round NCAA Tournament game; Thursday would be the 300th of Huggins' UC career. The last 23 have been as excruciating as fingernails on a blackboard. And, given the way this team rebounds, just as unlikely as the first 20.

Pitino mal,es By Dusty Saunders Scripps Howard News Service

It's difficult to keep Rick Pitino ·out of the basketball spotlight. The Pitino Coaching Rumor Mill has churned up almost as much ink and air time as stories about Bobby Knight and Eminem. Pitino.'s profile will soar even higher during the next two weeks, since he'll be working as a CBS Sports commentator during NCCA Tournament coverage. To jump~start such coverage, CBS put him, along with Billy Packer, Clark Kellogg .and CBS Sports president Sean McManus, on a conference call-with writers. While writers initially were asked to keep questions for Pitino limited to the tournament, the former Kentucky and Celtics coach indicated he was in

tonight serious discussions with Louisville for the coaching job there, while denying reports he was working on a contract that would pay him around $2.7 million annually. "It's nowhere· near that," he said. . Pitino also left the door open to staying in basketball broadcasting. "Even though I'm a beginner, it would allow me to stay involved in the game I love," he said. Pitino likes UCLA and Maryland among his Final Four. Regarding other Final Four teams, Pitino said, "Oh, I don't know , .. Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State . . . but I definitely like UCLA and Maryland." Pitino makes his debut as an analyst tonight during the play-in game at Dayton between Northwestern State and Winthrop.

X : West·to battle Irish star Murphy From 1B ly) didn't give him the ball, that would be stupid." · Fa,ct is, though, the Muskies gOt their 6-foot-8 engine the ball about as often as a deadbeat dad pays' child support - and it wasn't because West wasn't trying to get it. He often yelled for someone to pass him the ball, pushed and shoved his defender - or defenders. But he touched the ball only once in an offensive set the last 7:23 of XU's three-point loss at Dayton on March 4. West, who averages 17.8 points per game, didn't touch the ball in an offen. sive set the last four David West .mihutes of XU's 83-74 loss to George Washington iri the A-10 tourney quarterfinals last Thursday. XU assistant Mark Schmidt said

both instances were a combination of the Muskies not focusing on getting · West the ball and the defensive pressure on the big man. Against Dayton, Schmidt said it was primarily XU's fault in not getting West the ball to protect an eight-point lead. Against George Washington, the Colonials swarmed West, switching as many as five players on him in the secOnd halL · .Nonetheless, Schmidt said, for XU to counter Notre Dame's 6-11 AllAmerica Troy Murphy, West has to get the ball. Murphy, the Big East Conference co-Player of the Year, is one of the tallest and strongest players West will have faced this season. XU hasn't inserted any new plays for West this week. There are about eight to 10 plays in which West could receive the ball, but aren't necessarily exclusive for him. The only time the· offense is specifically designed for West is when four players stay on the perimeter, with West remaining on the block._

Ransom caps career Ursuline senior broke school record for career · champio~ships By Dave Schutte Tile Oimimati ENqttirer

Some athletes are quiet by nature, preferring to let their aCtions do their talking. Ursuline senior Tami Ransom is such a performer. Ransom won Division I individual state championships in the 100 freestyle and 200 ·individual medley and anchored both winning 200- and 400-freestyle relay teams, thus earning .The Enquirer swimmer of. the year honors. · This effort was key for the Lions winning ·the Division I state championship for the second consecutive season and a Cincinnati-area best fourth overall since 1991. Ransom closed out a brilliant four-year career with a school-record12 state championships, six in individual events and six as a member of relay teams. Erin Phenix, a member of the U.S. Olympic team, held the U1·suline record with 10 state championships. · 'Tami had a fantastic district and was shooting to break records here (Canton)," Tim Beerman, The Enquirer's coach of the year, said. "She will swim some personal-best times at the Senior National meet in March." No matter the stroke, the Stanford-bound Ransom was nearly unbeatable. She finished with the fastest regu- -___kt;;.~e.asmLJinl es_jJl__tb e 2.00 - individua:J medley, 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. Like Ransom, Beerman also is low keY,preferring to instruct and encourage the athletes during meets and practices rather than yelling and dishing out criticism. Since taking over the Ursuline program in 1997, Beerman's teams have won. three state -championships (1998, 2000, 2001) while finishing second in 1999, by 18 points. The future looks even brighter for Ursuline with most of the top perfm~mers returning, including a corp of freshmen.
