New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 1, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B HERALDZEITUNG Friday September NCAA suspends Wisconsin players after investigation MADISON Wis AP The NCAA suspended 26 Wisconsin football play ers Thursday for one to three games for receiving unadvertised discounts at a shoe store forcing the Badgers to bench 11 players for their opener The 11 suspended for the No 4 Badgers game with Western Michigan on Thursday night included starting receivers Chris Chambers and Nick Davis cornerback Jamar Fletcher offensive lineman Ben Johnson and line backer Bryson Thompson Eleven of the 26 were suspended for three games for receiving benefits of more than school officials said Another 15 players including running back Michael Bennett defensive tackle Wendell Bryant cornerback Mike Echols and Thompson were suspended for one game and ordered to do 12 hours of community service The suspensions stem from reports last month that members of the football and mens basketball teams may have received special credit arrangements at The Shoe Box in Black Earth that were not available to other clients Another 21 players including starting quarterback Brooks Bellinger were not suspended but were ordered to perform 24 hours of community service for the discounts they received All will be required to repay the dis counts they received The school also investigated allega tions that some athletes may have exchanged universityissued shoes for merchandise but found no evidence of that so far said Melany Newby vice chancellor for legal and executive affairs A report in the Wisconsin State Journal detailed purchases by eight members of the Badgers Final Four mens basketball team and 14 players from the Rose Bowl champion football team The paper reported players received discounts of 25 percent to 40 percent and interestfree credit Shoe Box owner Steve Schmitt said Thursday he talked to university offi cials several times about the discounts he offered players which he said are extended to all his regular customers Agassi falls in second round at Open 1 B lA f mafia tlta E orrloc BY STEVE WILSTEIN AP Tennis Writer NEW YORK There was no sadness in Andre Agassis eyes no regret over the listless loss of his Open title no excuse that his thoughts were on his cancerstricken mother and sister more than his tennis Agassi stared straight ahead his eyes clear his voice firm and gave all the credit to Frenchman Arnaud Clement for ending his reign as champion Thursday 63 62 64 It was just a brutal the topseeded Agassi said as he followed No 2 Gustavo Kuerten and twotime champion Patrick Rafter to a quick exit It has been a brutal summer for Agassi after a brilliant year From a run of four straight Grand Slam finals and three titles he stumbled to secondround exits in the French and Opens and a stinging semifinal loss at Wimbledon It was a summer when he hurt his back in a car accident and learned his mother had breast cancer just as his sister did With all that perhaps it was understandable that the 30yearold Agassi would reveal a sense of perspective on his latest loss saying Dont be too when someone sought to comfort him on the way to the players lounge When Agassi saw his girlfriend Steffi Graf minutes after the match he smiled and joked a bit performed a quick dance step with her their hips bumping and moved on to chat with other friends WHATS UP WHAT Open Tennis mens second and womens third round matches WHEN Today at 10 and WHERE From the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows TV USA Agassi didnt even come close to imposing his game on the 3Tinranked Clement who had lost to him in the French and Opens last year in their only previous meetings While Clement bounced jauntily around the court whacking 36 winners to Agassis 19 Agassi looked leaden his feet barely moving his usually quick hands moving slowly his shots lacking pace and depth and accuracy Agassi had jumped out to a 20 lead in the first set then he simply melted in the muggy heat losing eight of the next nine games His body language with his head drooping his shoulders sagging his eyes wandering indicat ed the frustration he was feeling Clement could see it even through his wraparound sun glasses and so could the perplexed fans who tried futilely to pump him up When asked if his heart was in it Agassi said Yeah very When asked if he was distracted at all he said he wasnt When asked if his back bothered him he said no If Agassi was hurting emotionally or physically he was keeping it to himself In truth Clement played splendidly but not spectacularly It was a case this time of Agassi shooting nothing but blanks For sure he didnt play a great match Clement said He did a lot of mistakes I dont think about him I just think about me To win this match its unbelievable because its on an unbelievable court Maybe persons Everybody is for him Its my best victory in my Womens defending champion Serena Williams had no trouble advancing to the third round beating Russian Nadejda Petrova 63 6 2 Williams with her sister Venus watching at courtside served six aces and slugged 11 win ners to just five for Petrova Earlier Lindsay Davenport seeking her sec ond Grand Slam title of the year and seeded second here was outplayed in the opening set before pounding out a 46 62 62 victory over 17yearold Kim Clijsters of Belgium I felt like I was hitting the ball and dictating the points in the second and third Davenport said She was hitting the ball pret ty well Shes a tough opponent and Im happy to get for 345 yards and five touch downs with just two interceptions He also is a threat to run the ball The fact that Ive been in this offense for a year I sort of know what to expect going into each game and how to McNabb said Not only that but when to put guys in different posi tions so we can have successful Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said McNabb has adjusted nicely to the West Coast offense and proven himself as a team leader despite his youth I was very impressed with him when he stepped into that role and had no problem with it I think a lot of that is Reid said The players seem to respond to him He handles it in a humble manner yet a forceful manner in the McNabbs progress and the off season acquisitions such as offen sive tackle Jon Runyan running back Brian Mitchell and line backer Carlos Emmons have made the Eagles a fashionable pick for a playoff spot out of the NFC East this season Reid whose first NFL victory was 1310 last season over Dallas after the Cowboys won their first three games isnt ready yet to talk about the postseason After all the Eagles have three straight losing seasons since their last postseason game in 1996 Its important that we build on how we finished last year The guys played hard through the sea Reid said We need to con tinue to limit mistakes and main tain the attitude we had last And like the Cowboys the Eagles arent worried about their preseason showing a 13 record They played their firstteam offense even less than Dallas Philadelphia opens the season against two straight NFC East foes while Dallas starts with three in a row This is the first time since 1976 that the Eagles and Cowboys are meeting in an opener Disabled golfer allowed to use cart at Sr Open 1B AUSTIN AP A former teach ing pro with a progressive muscle disease will be allowed to use a cart in all Senior Open Golf tour naments a federal judge has ruled JaRo Jones of Baytown filed a lawsuit against the United States Golf Association saying denying him a cart violates the Americans with Disabilities Act District Judge James R Nowlin agreed Wednesday issuing a permanent injunction that allows Jones to use a cart in all Senior Open tournaments This is just Jones said Thursday This is what I hoped for from the very beginning All this does is level the playing field to allow me to play at that The USGA will appeal the injunction spokesman Marty Parkes said The USGA has felt all along that rules in a national golf champi onships should apply equally to all players and that special provisions should not be made for all Parkes said In his ruling Nowlin said allow ing Jones the use of a cart is a rea sonable accommodation Nothing in the rules of golf requires walk Nowlin wrote The judge noted that the Senior PGA Tour also permits players to ride carts during

Man camp in Hawaii worked out Thursday with Popovich and some teammates running the stairs in the Alamodome Though he felt percent sure that he would retire at the end of last season Elliott said he was swayed by Tim Duncans decision earlier this month to re sign with the Spurs for at least three more years Obviously Tim coming back is the biggest Elliott said If he wasnt coming back I wouldnt be here Without him were not contenders I mean thats obvious So you just dont want to play your last year fighting for a playoff The Spurs were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round last season
