Students may have noticed a flood of junk e-mails pouring into their accounts in recent months. The university is cautioning students against phishing schemes that can cause massive problems including accounts locking out users. “In an average month, we receive reports from several students that their email accounts
have been blocked,” said Jennifer Raby, training and communication coordinator for information technology and computer services. “Typically this means that they have tripped Microsoft’s monitoring of outbound spam thresholds. This can be a sign that they have fallen victim to a phising scheme. When this happens, it can be very burdensome on the student as they must contact ITCS to receive assistance re-enabling their account.” Spam email accounts for 14.5 billion mes-
sages globally per day, which is approximately 73 percent of all email, according to Spamlaws. com. Spam email costs businesses approximately $1,934 annually per employee adding up to $20.5 billion on average in decreased productivity. “I honestly don’t know how many embarrassing Girls Gone Dubstep emails have

The university cancelled classes early last Friday as winter weather moved through Eastern North Carolina, starting in Pitt County around 1 p.m. “We keep an eye on the weather, and when we see that severe weather can impact the university, we have our planning team pull together,” said Tom Pohlman, the university’s environmental manager. “A lot of things go into it –- a lot of people have input.”
Pohlman said the team analyzes how to approach the weather and if it is serious enough to cause class cancellations. They then decide who needs to send a message out, and by what way. They decided on 3 p.m. for early release, picking a time that causes the least amount of damage and the most amount of safety for students. “If we decide it is something to be concerned about, we talk about if we want to cancel classes and when, based on the weather
forecast,” he said. “Even though you saw some snow and some sleet early, the roads (in Greenville) had been sprayed with a brine solution, and the temperatures were supposed to be above freezing until around 5 p.m.” According to The Daily Reflector, the call volume into the State Highway Patrol from Pitt County neared 160 at 5 p.m. on Friday, as the conditions worsened. Along with the university, Pitt County Schools and Pitt Community College both closed early.
On Januar y 23 Marc H. Morial, President of the National Urban League, spoke at “Visualizing the Dream,” an event honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His speech focused on keeping King’s dream alive today. “Visualization of Dr. King’s dream is more than celebrating Dr. King’s words. Visualization of Dr. King’s dream is more than celebrating Dr. King’s eloquence. Visualization of Dr. King’s dream must mean acting in the present to make this vision a reality before we go to dust,” said Morial. He spoke of taking great public figures of every race, like Tyler Perry and Stephen Speilberg, and putting them into a time machine, traveling to 1963 where they would bear witness to the Great March on Washington. “Those in that time machine, successful men and women, from politics and entertainment, from sports and the media, people of great wealth and power of our generation, would witnesses to the year 1963, a celebration the Great March On Washington… They wouldn’t be watching it on television or a documentary; they would see it with their own eyes,” said Morial. He believes the people of this generation would be shocked at the risks people in 1963 took to have freedom. “The members of that time machine would look in awe as people risked their careers and jobs by participating in that public demonstration of freedom,” he said. The accomplishments of a generation who fought for their freedom affected many social barriers today’s society has, said Morial. The hardships and risks people of that time took fighting for equality helped to make today’s generation’s lives better. To Morial, the people of 1963 embraced King’s dream.

spam continued from popped up on my phone at the worst possible moments,” said senior psychology major Laura Brown. For instance, when I was attempting to show my grandmother vacation pictures and she opened up an eye full of Girls Gone Dubstep.” The most popular of spam e-mail is adult-related material, accounting for 36 percent of spam, and financial matters follow close behind. Fraudulent emails concerning identity theft and phishing schemes add up to only 2.5 percent of all unwanted e-mails. College students are additionally targeted for fake scholarships, fake jobs and cheap textbooks. R aby said, “Student e-mail accounts are considered public information and occasionally the university registrar receives a request for information, although as few as 25 requests are usually

Student addresses are also available in the online ECU directory.” Student accounts are also made available to spam companies through user sign-ups on websites like Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Pandora. These companies can provide and occasionally even sell email addresses to third parties, which can then send spam e-mails to those accounts. The CAN-SPAM act was put into place in January of 2004 to protect personal email users against pornographic and false advertising emails. The act gives users the right to ask these junk e-mailers to cease contacting them. The act also prohibits false and misleading subject lines. “I don’t know anyone who emails any more except professors, so I played around with my settings, so I only accept email from my pro-

The departments also advises students to proceed with caution when operating online and to never open e-mails with attachments they are not expecting and never provide personal information via email.

view King’s dream in 2013. He believes reading King’s words are not enough, but acting upon his words is the way to keep his vision alive. In response to the mass shootings in Newtown, Connecticut and Aurora, Colorado, he believes sitting back is not an option when people could take steps to help out. “Some would say let us do nothing; let us sit; let us watch; let us wrangle; let us have another one of these debates. We must take steps today to ensure a peaceful nation here at home,” said Morial. Morial said in order to visualize King’s dream, actualizing is the key step. Taking action on important issues such as gun violence, education and poverty can help keep King’s vision alive today. Being a people of action can help bring change to the word, not only reading and admiring King’s words. As Morial concluded his speech, he challenged the crowd with some of King’s words. “Be the thermostat, not the thermometer, not simply weigh the temperature of the times, but to be people that set the temperature of the times,” he said. Emotional ties and connections to King’s message brought some students to see Morial. For freshman Glory Liuyomadi, public health major and director of Campus Diversity, King’s dream gives her hope. “The ‘dream’ part. It sounds cliché but the ‘I have a dream,’ just to know that, once again, an African American man had a dream

and that I’m living it and that I’m walking it but it hasn’t been accomplished and made reality yet gives me hope and gives me kind of a motivation to make that dream come true again,” said Liuyomadi. Freshman marketing major Morgan Gibbs expected to receive more
from Morial’s words. “I think he could have done a better job of lifting students. I feel like what he was saying was more so a recital from a history book. I just expected a little bit more from him,” she said. This writer can be contacted at email@example.com.

East Carolina University gaming club happliy raises trophy after their tournament victory about two weeks ago across the country in Santa Clara, California.
OPiNi ON C OL UM Ni ST
The ECU Gaming club won the NVIDIA Call of Duty: Black Ops II Rivalries tournament Jan. 19 in a dominating performance. The team represented the Purple and Gold against several colleges from across the United States including Oregon State, California, Southern California and in-state rival N.C. State. Facebook users were able to vote for the wildcard spots using an application on the NVIDIA Facebook page, and the ECU Gaming team headlined the No. 1 spot for almost the entirety of the contest. Team members Stephan Loehr, Michael Mangelli, Matthew Mangelli, Clif Stubbs and Nate Kellum traveled to NVIDIA headquarters in Santa Clara, California for the grand finals. The format of the tournament was four vs. four on the Team Deathmatch playlist and the first team to 75 kills won the match. The first team to win four matches out of seven would move on to face the next team. Between each match, teams were able to swap out alternates. After beating Oregon State 4-2 in the wildcard round, they swept matches against California and the grand finale against Southern Cal.
4-0. N.C. State’s team was dominated 4-0 in the opening round by Southern Cal. In the previous qualifying round, California defeated UCLA 4-0 and the Southern Cal. team defeated the Stanford team 4-1. N.C. State and UNC-Chapel Hill also faced off, with the Wolfpack edging out the Tar Heels 4-3. For their victory, each member of the ECU team received a GeForce GTX 680 gaming computer and a donation of computers will be made to ECU’s Computer Science Department. I spoke with the founder and president of the ECU Gaming Club Joe Letizia earlier in the week to learn more about the ECU Gaming Club and their preparation for the tournament.
Brian Holloman: “When was the ECU Gaming club started?” Joe Letizia: “ECU Gaming was started in the fall semester of 2011. It was originally formed as a Starcraft 2 Facebook group for ECU students, with roughly 25 members. As the group continued to grow, we outgrew the apartments we were playing at. We would all gather at someone’s apartment every Friday night and have a tournament or watch professional tournaments,

BH: “What kind of events does the ECU Gaming Club hold?” JL: “The club holds more or less two in person events, LANs, per month. We meet up in the Great Rooms in Mendenhall, and usually run anywhere from 3p.m.11p.m. These events have a range of activities going on, including all different types of games, practice sessions (where we usually have the best players at the school working one-on-one with other players to improve their skills), mini-tournaments, etc. Once per semester we also have what we call our “sponsored tournaments.” We have multiple corporate sponsors that provide prizes for these events, (all you can drink Red Bull anyone!?) and we have people that come from as far as Maryland to Florida to participate.”
BH: “You mentioned that the ECU Gaming club holds its own tournaments. Has the group ever participated in outside gaming tournaments before, either amateur or professional?”

No professor, i’m not laughing with you, i’m laughing at you. Your laugh sounds like a mix of Tigger & the Pillsbury doughboy.
and we realized that we would need bigger space. We saw the option of becoming a school-sanctioned club, which would give us access to on campus spaces, and decided to go for it. Along the way, we met up with other groups that were dedicated to one game on ECU’s campus, though not official clubs, such as the Super Smash Bros group, and through a few meetings, decided on a merger into ECU Gaming; a group that would provide a place for gamers at ECU to meet other gamers, and fuel a healthy competitive flame for eSports, as well as non-competitive games.”
The players from the gaming team congratulating each other on their win.
JL: “Yes. A lot of members in the club have all participated in amateur or professional tournaments, not just our own. We have had multiple members participate in (Major League Gaming) in a wide array of games. We also have a very large
showing at CGS, which is Carolina Games Summit; a large event held in Goldsboro every February, which last year we placed top three in all three of the largest events. On top of all that, we have the NVIDIA Rivals tournament, which our team is being flown out to California, all expenses paid for by NVIDIA, to participate.”
BH: “How is your group preparing for the NVIDIA tournament?” JL: “The five team members are on a pretty strict practice schedule. Luckily since it is an online game, it allows for flexibility of when practice sessions can be (not being limited to being together in person all the time.) There is a lot more that goes into preparing for a game then just being able to point and shoot. Our team is learning every aspect of the game as thoroughly as possible; from exact weapon statistics, to studying every corner of every map, and once each individual player can perform every aspect of the game at a high level, the team aspect comes into play, with communication being key. They practice together in order to be able to communicate as fluidly and efficiently as possible, all the while increasing their performance.”
BH: “For students that are interested in joining the ECU Gaming club, when does the club regularly meet?” JL: “Due to the nature of the club, nearly all of club communication is done online through Facebook. We can be found at www.facebook.com/ groups/ECUGaming. All dates for events are posted through that, and individual event invitations are done through the roster of that page.” Congratulations to the ECU Gaming club on their victory!

Bridging the Gap between ECU and Greenville Uriah Ward
OPiNi ON C OL UM Ni ST
There is a divide between ECU and Greenville. It isn’t a divide you can see, but it’s clearly present. Students don’t feel like they’re a part of the city they live in. Many of us feel no allegiance or fondness toward Greenville and for the most part, we are not invested in or aware of local issues. We don’t see any point to involving ourselves in the affairs of Greenville and most of us wouldn’t know how to, even if we were interested. It is almost impossible to find a student at ECU who was aware of the debate about the location of the intermodal center or the fact that the Tar River University Neighborhood Association is suing the city of Greenville over a controversial ordinance. The closest you’ll get is the occasional complaint about the speed bumps downtown, but that never amounts to any form of action or involvement. It seems like the city never reaches out to students to try to bring them into the decision-mak-
ing process. And students don’t go out of their way to get involved, because they don’t see the point. They don’t understand how local decisions affect them and many of us don’t plan to be here for very long. I am an anomaly here. I was born here in Greenville. I am extremely proud of my city. I love living in the 10th-largest city in the state. We are the home of Hardees and we are the BMX capital of the world. We have the best barbeque in the state and host a great university. Greenville is awesome and I have been personally invested in its affairs for years. I’ve been involved with several campaigns for city council. While I was still in high school I was appointed by the city council to serve on the Greenville Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission and eventually was chosen as its chair-elect. While I’ve been less-able to recently, I do enjoy attending city council meetings and understand how the decisions made in city hall come back to affect students at ECU. I’ve always been dismayed by the lack of student input and interest in
city matters because of how much it really does affect all of us. Many of us are leaving after four years, but these decisions still matter while we’re here. Quite a few of us will be here longer; some will even make homes here. We should make sure our voices are heard in the local decision-making process so we can ensure that our community is meeting our needs. There are several steps that can be taken to meet this end. Greenville has many public commissions that help to make important decisions about the direction of our city. Several of these have a large impact on students, but are not currently influenced by them in any way. These are the Board of Adjustment, Community Appearance Commission, Planning and Zoning, Recreation and Parks, and Public Transportation and Parking. The city should consider adding a seat to these commissions with a one-year term specifically for ECU students. This will both increase student interest in the issues, as well as increase their ability to make a difference. It would also help the city of
Greenville be more responsive to the needs and interests of our students. The Residence Hall Association should also be given a seat on the Neighborhood Advisory Board. This board is made up of representatives from neighborhood associations across the city. Giving RHA a seat at the table would be a strong step toward making our campus more a part of Greenville and less a self-contained island within Greenville. And finally, we should have an active and engaged Student Government Association working to represent us in City Hall. We need an SGA that will actively educate students about city affairs and why they’re important. We need one that will work for these proposed changes and work to increase student influence in general. It is in our interest to involve ourselves in local affairs. These policies make a difference in our lives, and if we try, we can have an influence in these policies. This writer can be contacted at email@example.com.

resident. A nine letter word with countless responsibilities. A term that can weigh heavily on the person who owns it. A pressure packed title that can muffle once held intentions. Matt Paske knows this. In response, he is trimming and morphing his new title into a pair of four letter words: team work. Paske is approaching his new presidency with leadership experience, a positive mindset and, most importantly, a game plan. “One thing that I am definitely going to do is spread everything out a lot more,” said Paske, a senior double major in nursing and psychology. “I think that is very important, and that includes expanding the roles of Da’Juan and Eric Green and Kaitlyn Dunn, our new secretary, and Ira Rushing, our new Vice President. As long as we work as a team and we do everything honestly and we’re open with each other, I think that we can do a lot of good things.” While he hopes to utilize his cabinet members, he is more than an accomplished leader himself. Last fall he served as the president of his senior nursing class. He has spent three years in SGA and was vice president under Justin Davis. But his most important leadership experience came as president of Pi Kappa Alpha.
“I think the primary position that really got me ready for this one was being the president of my fraternity,” said Paske. “I think that one was definitely the most difficult leadership role. And that one was where if you didn’t use team work you not only fail as an individual, but you fail as an entire organization. Without that experience, I don’t think I would have been ready for a position like this.” In his role as the president of Pi Kappa Alpha he helped grow the organization and introduce a conscious way of leading. “We doubled our community service hours and the guys worked hard and learned their roles,” said Paske. “We started transitioning people into different positions earlier, so that gave them the chance to learn the position that they would assume in a little while.” For approximately two months he let the president that was to follow him assume small tasks and thus helped make the transition for the organization easier. As SGA President, he hopes to also work on making the transition from year to year smoother, as well as establishing better relations with the City of Greenville and doing some internal reorganization, as far as the judicial branch goes. While he has tons of responsibilities, one of them being completing the second half of his double major in psychology, he is no different than any other college guy. “I’m pretty much a normal college kid. I like to party. I like to hang out with friends. I have a convertible, so I like driving that
around,” said Paske. “I like going to school. You know, I’m just a normal dude. I love baseball. I have a dog. And I just love being around other people.” Abel Real, a 22-year-old senior health fitness specialist major, is one of the many people that Paske has befriended during his time at ECU. “We had our first run-in freshman year. We stayed at the same dorm, but we were involved in different activities, so we didn’t really talk much until we got to the College of Nursing,” said Real. Through the time they spent together in classes and study groups, Real and Paske became good friends. “He is always an upbeat guy. I’ve never seen Matt down. I don’t think I have ever heard him say anything in a negative aspect,” said Real. “He has always been the guy making jokes, and just because he is so dependable it doesn’t make him a stiff guy.” While Real knows that Paske is a great person, he also believes that Paske will make a great leader in his new position. “There couldn’t be someone more perfect than Matt,” said Real. “He definitely uses his office for the benefit of others and not for the benefit of himself, which is exactly the type of president that East Carolina University needs.” This writer can be contacted at email@example.com.

Age: a state of mind, not a number At 101, local still trains for track and badmitten at Senior Games
Amanda Cooper s TA f f w r i T e r
ike many of us, he starts his bi-weekly routine at the Student Recreation Center playing on the courts and running a mile on the track. However, he is not just like us. He’s not even a student actually. His name is Bill Finch and he just turned 101-years-old a couple weeks ago. But don’t let his age fool you, he could probably out run quite a few people not even half his age. “It takes me about 15 minutes to run a mile,” Finch said, laughing. “When I first started running, I could run it in about five minutes, and then it went up to six, then eight and so on.” Finch, born and raised in North Carolina, went to UNC-Chapel Hill and ran track for two years until he had to quit due to the Great Depression and the banks closing. But never giving up his passion for running, Finch has remained to be active even after retirement. In 1997, Finch moved to Greenville from Fayetteville and ever since he has been participating in the Senior Games, where local seniors compete against one another in various events from discus and archery, to basketball and table tennis. “An advantage to senior games, unlike high school athletics: you can’t get too old,” said Milt Sherman, exercise and sports science instructor who also participates in the Senior Games. The games are broken down into age groups with five-year increments. Finch participates in singles and doubles badminton, the 800-meter run and the 1500-meter run in the Senior Games at the local and state level, as well as the national level. However, at his age, it’s hard for Finch to find others to compete against in the 100 plus age group. “I’m all alone in my age group,” Finch said. “Anything I enter, I win the gold. Sometimes I compete against people who are much younger, and I beat them.” He holds several state and national records in events. Sherman says they must com-
pete against someone, though, in order to place in the state and national level. He recalls a few years ago, Finch was playing badminton at the state competition and they just pulled in a college student for him to play against, and Finch beat him. “This was a 20-something-yearold healthy college student and the difference was that Bill knew how to play,” Sherman said. “Bill wasn’t going to cover the whole court, but Bill beat the guy.” Sherman also joins Finch on the badminton court every week and plays doubles with him. Sherman says Finch has a good, healthy concept of what he can and cannot do. “If he’s not feeling particularly well, he’ll go sit down,” Sherman said. “So, having good sense, maybe one reason why he’s as old as he is, he understands he has limitations. But within those limitations, he’s an active player.” Sherman says he is also still very competitive. “Obviously, genetics enters into longevity, but he’s also a positive person,” Sherman said. “Which I think has an impact on it, too. That makes him fun to be around. “ Finch said he doesn’t really have any secrets for his longevity except that he eats his greens and stays away from meat. Health wise, Finch said he’s feeling good, except for a little offset in his back that causes him to lean forward. “The nice thing is that when I run it disappears,” Finch explained. Currently, Finch is training to break his own personal records in the 800 and 1500-meter run at the nationals for the Senior Games being held in Cleveland this July. This will be his fourth time at nationals and the first time he is competing in the 100 plus age group. “I doubt there is anybody 100 years old going to run, but I’ll be there if I’m still feeling good,” Finch said. Finch said he plans to keep running as long as he is in good health. His only complaint is the food they serve at his retirement community.

More Trouble in the Bullpen Staff Reports ECU senior left-hander Tyler Joyner has been dismissed from the Pirate baseball program according to an announcement from head Coach Billy Godwin Monday afternoon. “we were made aware of an off-the-field incident involving Tyler last week,” Godwin said. “i have made a determination that Tyler was in violation of our team philosophy and he has been dismissed from the team. As a program, we hold our student-athletes to a high standard and being held accountable for their actions.” Joyner, who was selected in the 35th round (pick 1,063) by the Kansas City royals and appeared in 17 games with ECU (12 starts) posting a 6-2 record with a 3.01 ErA in 92.2 innings a year ago. Along with Joyner, Godwin suspended Tanner Merritt indefinitely on Jan. 18 for a violation of team rules. ECU begins their season at home against nationally ranked Virginia on Friday, Feb. 15 at Lewis Field inside Clark-LeClair stadium.
Bowden Suspended Staff Reports head Basketball Coach Jeff Lebo has suspended ECU guard shamarr Bowden for wednesday’s game against Memphis. Bowden was involved in an altercation with UTEP shooting guard Konner Tucker. Punches were thrown and Bowden was ejected from the game. “his behavior was very uncharacteristic, but unfortunately he let his emotions get the best of him,” Lebo said. “shamarr is very remorseful about his conduct and understands the consequences. i know he’ll use this as a constructive learning experience to become a better player and better man.”

Heartbreak Last week, ECU won on a Corvonn Gaines buzzer-beater. This week Pirate Nation and its basketball team fell to the other end of the spectrum, losing to UTEP on a last second three-pointer.
A s s i s TA NT s P orT s Ed iTor
Saturday evening was filled with controversy and excitement as the ECU Pirates hosted the UTEP Miners. The physical battle took a toll on both the teams and it took a buzzer-beater to finish the game. With the game on the line, UTEP’s McKenzie Moore hit a three-point dagger to beat the Pirates at the buzzer, 68-67. Down by two with 4.4 seconds remaining, UTEP’s Jacques Streeter dribbled up the court and tossed the ball to the trailing Moore who pulled up from well beyond the three-point line to drain the game-winner and silence the ECU crowd. The Pirates, who beat Central Florida two weeks ago on Corvonn Gaines’ last second three-pointer at home, lost on a game-ending three Saturday night against visiting UTEP. The Pirates now know the feeling of a last second defeat. Moore only made six long-range shots all season, but on Saturday night, he shot 3-4 from beyond the arc, including the game winner. “Anytime you make one like that at the end, you feel like you’ve got a horseshoe up your tail,” said UTEP Head Coach Tim Floyd. “Our young team needed something like that.” Everything was pitted against the Pirates Saturday night as four players ended up leaving the game without returning. Ty Armstrong and Marshall Guilmette both fouled out of the game, both were guarding UTEP’s John Bohannon. Needless to say, Bohannon was a physical beast in the paint throughout the game. Bohannon tallied 23 points, 11 from the charity stripe and nine rebounds for the Miners. Robert Sampson left the game with a knee injury and wasn’t able to return. The trainers took him to the locker room to run tests on his left leg. ECU’s Shamarr Bowden was disqualified from the game. Bowden lost his cool in a scuffle with UTEP’s Konner Tucker, resulting in a flagrant foul and ejection on Bowden. B owden, who thre w two punches, later apologized via twitter, saying: “I didn’t get to speak to [Tucker] after the game, but I want to apologize to you and your team.”
Bowden continued to express remorse for his actions: “That’s not who I am. I am bigger than that and it was out of character of me.” The Pirates also had a poor outing from the scoring leader, Maurice Kemp. Kemp was not in the starting lineup as Coach Lebo informed the media that Kemp was late to a team meeting. Adding to the disciplinary actions imposed by Lebo, Kemp struggled from the field only shooting 3-13 from the field and finishing with only 10 points. After Bowden’s disqualification, the Pirates needed Kemp to step up, and he did. Kemp registered eight points in the final 6:48 of the game. Miguel Paul led the way for ECU as he scored a team-high 20 points, including the go-ahead basket with 4.4 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, UTEP had an answer to end the game, but Paul was efficient for the Pirates. The senior point guard shot 5-10 from the field and 4-5 from downtown on the night. Paul also had three assists and a game high four steals. The Pirates were stellar from the free throw line, hitting 20 of 21 compared to UTEP’s 16-27 effort from the charity stripe. Sampson led the Pirates with nine rebounds before he left midway in the second half with an apparent knee injury. Overall, the Pirates controlled the game and their biggest lead was nine points. On the contrary, UTEP’s biggest lead was just two points and that was in the first thirty seconds of the game. The only good takeaway f rom Saturday night’s game was the fight and effort given by the Pirates. ECU played team basketball and showed the potential for a strong finish for the rest of the Conference USA schedule. With the loss, t h e Pirates
drop to 12-7 and 3-3 in conference play. The loss to UTEP was only the second home loss in Minges Coliseum. ECU now has a big game coming up as Memphis comes into Greenville for Wednesday night’s matchup. The Memphis Tigers are 16-3 and undefeated in conference competition (5-0). Earlier in the season the Pirates lost to Memphis 67-54 but ECU was within single-digits for the majority of the second half. Lebo and his team will be without Bowden, serving a suspension for the flagrant foul Saturday night. For the Pirates to knock off the Tigers, they will > BUzzER page

CALENDAR “The goal for the weekend was to see continued improvement from both teams. Not only did we meet that goal, but we by far exceeded it.”- Head Track Coach Curt Kraft, after the team’s record-breaking performance.
When at the free-throw line, a player is left alone with only the ball and their thoughts. ECU sophomore Kyani White found herself in that position twice in the final 30 seconds of Sunday’s game against the Tulane Green Wave with her team only leading by a point. White stepped up to the occasion and made all four of her freethrows to seal a 55-52 Lady Pirates victory at Devlin Fieldhouse — their Wednesday

first in that building since 2004 – snapping a eight game winning streak by Tulane (14-4, 3-2) in the head-to-head series. “Tulane is one of the best teams in Conference USA,” said Head Coach Heather Macy. “This is a signature win for our program.” ECU (13-5, 3-2 C-USA) trailed 45-40 with 3:50 remaining after Green Wave guard Tyria Snow hit a jumper as the shot clock expired.

Pirate Tennis dominates
The ECU Men’s Tennis team continued their impressive run last weekend after beating both the Norfolk State Spartans and the Longwood University Lancers. Sunday afternoon, the Pirates faced off against the Longwood University Lancers. Led by ECU seniors Joran Vliegan and John Schmitt, the Pirates beat the Lancers 7-0. The Pirates were able to gain so much momentum against Longwood because they were able to catch the doubles point. Doubles matches are the big emphasis in college tennis, because Cont. Saturday

unlike singles matches where you get one point for every victory, whoever wins the most doubles matches gets the doubles point. “Winning the doubles point against Longwood really got things going in the right direction, (Longwood) came out strong and were ready to go -- once we got the doubles point it helped us relax,” said Head Coach Shawn Heinchon. Heinchon was very impressed with Vliegan, his team leader. “He played number one singles and doubles both days he went 4-0, he is turning into a very good leader for our team,” said Heinchon.

Coliseum this season, includthe way we defended was ing their first two road conincredible. Maybe, our best (perference games at Memphis and formance) of the season, there’s UTEP. “I told (the no quit in them. t e a m ) , l e t ’s - Heather Macy show that we’ve learned our lesson,” said Macy. Instead of crumbling down the stretch as they have done before, Macy leaned on her senior leaders to lead the rally. In less than a minute of elapsed game-time, Celeste Stewart tied the game at 45. Stewart did so by completing a three-point play, getting to the charity stripe and making two free throws. On Tulane’s ensuing possession, White recorded a steal and found Whitny Edwards, who drained a three-pointer to cap an 8-0 run and put the Lady Pirates in front 48-45 with 2:41 remaining in the game. Edwards’ three would be the team’s last made field goal. The Green Wave would not go away quietly. Sophomore guard Jamie Kaplan fouled out Stewart and earned a trip to the free throw line, trailing 51-49 with a chance to tie the game with less than a minute to play. Kaplan split the foul shots to keep ECU in front 51-50 and allow White to end the game. Tulane’s leading scorer, Whitney Bibbins, who entered Sunday’s contest averaging 13.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game, was held scoreless in her 10 minutes of playing time. Their next leading scorer, Danielle Blagg (10.8 PPG), did not make a field goal (0-4) and could only muster up four points from free-throws (4-7). “The way we defended was incredible. Maybe, our best (performance) of the season,” said Macy. “There’s no quit in them.” Stewart had a game-high 14 points before fouling out. Britny Edwards scored 10 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds, while Whitny added nine points and five boards. After Tulane’s Tiffany Dale scored on the game’s first possession, ECU went on a 12-2 run to goahead 12-4. The Lady Pirates took their largest lead of the game with 9:36 left in the first half when Kristine Mial drained a three-pointer to make it 19-9. The Green Wave scored the last 12 points of the first half and led going into the locker room, 25-21. ECU will return home for its next two games – Thursday against Marshall (6-12, 0-5 C-USA) and Super Bowl Sunday versus UCF (7-12, 1-4 C-USA). The Lady Pirates are 8-1 this season when playing at home. Speaking of the Super Bowl, the Lady Pirates win in New Orleans occurs just one week prior to the big game, which the city will host. Macy said it was clear that there was a buzz in the area. After the win, the team had its own way of celebrating together. “We’ve got some beads, and you know they’re purple,” said Macy.

freshman teammate Colin Roller were able to clinch the No. 1 doubles after they beat sophomore Daniel Elston and senior Giorgi Khmiadshvili, 8-6. The Pirates were also able to clinch the No. 2 doubles when sophomore Damien Brenard and senior John Schmitt held off the Lancers’ Edward Becker and Harry Kelleher (9-8). Even though winning the doubles point is important in tennis, most people like to watch how a player is able to perform on their own. The Pirates were able to win every singles match without dropping a set to their opponent. The Lancers weren’t even able to breath because of the aggressive play of all the Pirates competitors, but Coach Heinchon believed that the team could still improve in those areas. “We played great singles both days, but we need a little wok on our doubles. We need to be a little more aggressive,” Heinchon said. The Friday afternoon matches put ECU against the Norfolk State Spartans. This match was the first time Heinchon was able to see some of his young players in game action. “[It was good to see] our first year guys, [and] how they handle the pressure of playing in spring matches,” said Coach Heinchon. Roller was one freshman that did not seem fazed by

the big time pressure. Roller beat Norkfolk State freshman Samuel Lemberger on Friday and sophomore Steed Johnson in straight sets. Like they did against the Lancers, the Pirates were able to win the doubles point when the teams of Schmitt and Brenard, and sophomores Nicolas Soriano and Patriek Wolterbeek beat their opponents. “If we don’t play solid doubles, we can make our day a little harder,” said Heinchon. Anot her impressive achievement for the Pirates is the 18-2 record in singles matches. ECU’s only two losses came from Schmitt losing to Longwood’s Dimitry Zyhmantovic in three sets and Soriano losing to George Mason’s Jordan Dyke. “We are getting used to playing a couple matches in a row,” said Heinchon. “This will be the first time we’ve done that since the fall. We need to make sure we get rested and get our self ready physically and mentally for the short turn-around.” So far, the Pirates have exceeded expectations, losing only one match out of a total of 14 matches played. ECU hits the road next Friday to face the George Washington Colonials. “If we play to our ability, we should get through these matches,” said Heinchon.

Women’s softball prepared to compete under new staff William Farrar S TAff w r i T e r
Anchored by a new head coach, the Pirates softball program is hard at work in preparation for its 2013 campaign. Head Coach Beth Keylon-Randolph, who was announced as ECU’s new softball coach last October, has high expectations for her team. Keylon-Randolph is considered by many to be well qualified for her new position. She has over 600 victories, 10 conference titles and six coach-of-the-year selections on her resume. “I am honored to be afforded this opportunity to coach Pirate softball,” KeylonRandolph said. “I am so appreciative to Coach Holland and the administration for the belief that they have shown in me to be the coach that takes this program to new levels of success.” Three new faces will also be joining Keylon-Randolph this season. Steve Jaecks will become lead assistant coach for ECU, after serving the past eight years at Chat-
tanooga State with coach Keylon-Randolph. “I have worked with Coach Jaecks for the past eight years and he is simply one of the best softball minds in the fast pitch game anywhere in the world,” said KeylonRandolph. Leah Kelley will also be joining the coaching staff, after playing under KeylonRandolph at Chattanooga State. “Coach Kelley is a talented young coach,” Keylon-Randolph said. “She played for me at Chattanooga State for two years, before continuing her outstanding playing career at Maryville College.” Rounding off the coaching staff is Courtney Crews, a former Hofstra standout. As a volunteer assistant coach, Crews will work with the team’s catchers and assist all other coaches in their duties. With seven starters returning from the 2012 squad, expectations are higher than ever for Pirate softball. Despite being two games under a winning season last year, Keylon-Randolph is confident in the talent she has seen thus far.
“The expectation of Pirate softball is high and I love stepping into that type of challenge. My goal as a mentor is to provide the motivation and atmosphere that will produce the finest young women athletes that are number one in academics, number one on the field and outstanding citizens.” The Pirates held their first team practice on Jan. 13. With competition less than a month away, the team focused on the fundamentals of softball and did not do anything too complex. The new coaching staff has really been able to sit back and observe the talent they have and get to understand everyone’s strongest skills and weaknesses. “We started our first day back by getting in an hour of individual pitcher-catcher workouts,” Keylon-Randolph explained. “We then progressed and had an hour of hitting in the batting cage and on the field, before finishing the day with an hour of defense and going through situations.” Of all of the players returning, true freshman Sarah Christian returns to the
pitching staff for the Pirates. Christian, who was selected to the Conference USA Allfreshman team, won 18 games in 2012 and threw 200 innings, which were team highs in both categories. Alongside its ace pitcher, ECU also brings back five of the top six hitters from last season. Jill Jelnick, who is a preseason all-conference selection, hit .315 last season with a team-high 51 hits. Kai Clark had a .283 batting average with a pair of homeruns added to her statistics. Jasmine Robbins and Jordan Lewis were also big contributors last season. Both players had over 20 RBI and 12 stolen bases. Alex Fieldhouse rounds out the list of notables with 40 hits, 18 RBI and 17 walks from last season. The Pirates’ season will start on Feb. 8, when ECU will host the annual Pirate Classic. Cleveland State, Ohio, Rider and Towson will attend the Classic.
