Rain Cuts ASU's Practice Sliort
JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas State only got an hour and 20 minutes of work done Monday toward wrapping up the Southland Conference football ti-Ue.
Rain and a soggy field cut short the Indians' practice for Saturday's game against Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. ASU, leading the SLC with two games to go, worked on its passing game and reviewed mistakes made in a 41-12 victory over Southern Illinois.
"It was basically just a teaching session," said Ron Calcagni, ASU quarterback coach. "We always try and devote Mondays to learning and recognition of our opponent's offenses and defenses.''
ASU coaches named offensive lineman Lonnell Sheard and backup quarterback Mark Rob-bins, along with fullback Ricky Jemison, as their choices as offensive standouts.
Linebacker Mark Willis was named the Indians' defensive player of the week. The special teams honor went to Stacy Price, who tackled the Southern Illinois punter after a bad snap.
representatives in the Top as Kentucky, which finished lltH, and No. 14 Louisiana State were also selected by the 63-member board of voters.
Kentucky, now coached by Eddie Sutton, was ranked 18th in last year's preseason poll. But the Wildcats lost four of their first five games and weren't ranked again the rest of the season, despite advancing to the West Regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.
Notre Dame, the only independent in the Top Twenty and one of seven teams to receive first-place votes, finished 12th and received the other first-place vote. Oklahoma was next, followed by Louisiana State; Memphis State, a Final Four team last year; Alabama-Birmingham; North Carolina State of the ACC; Nevada-Las Vegas; and, tied for 19th, Maryland of the ACC and Navy, schools 25 miles apart.
Seven team$ in the preseason poll — Louisville, Auburn, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Alabama-Birmingham, Maryland and Navv — were unranked in the final poll last season.
In addition to the Big East and Big Ten, two other conferences have two representatives in the poll, the Big Eight with Kansas and Oklahoma, and the Metro with Louisville and Memphis State.
Last year's national champion, Villanova, is unranked, as is St. John's, a fellow Big East school and Final Four participant. Both teams lost several key players to graduation.
Villanova was also unranked going into the NCAA tournament last season.
