those games. Thursday he threw 68 pitches (48 strikes), including just seven pitches in the first, eight in the third, five in the fifth and nine in the sixth. Bevil’s earned run average (based .on seven innings) dropped to 0.37.
“All of his outings have been good,” Edwards said. “What he does is throw strikes. Dripping Springs is a team that’s going to come out swinging. When you got the wind blowing in, Bradley (Bevil) Is tough on anybody.” Defensively, Sierra and Chandler turned a nice 3-6 inning-ending double play in the second. Also, in the fifth, the Unicorns got out of jam when Logan Wyeth grounded to second baseman Gibby Martinez for a 4-6-3 inning-ending double play.
Sierra, however, made the defensive play of the game in the sixth inning and the Tigers made a costly base-running mistake. Blake Thompson singled to lead off the inning and Daryl Lehman bunted him to second. With one out, Wright grounded back to Bevil on the mound and Bevil gunned down pinch runner Shawn Fortune trying to take third.
After Pavhca’s infield single put runners at first and second, left-hander Gary Mears ripped a ground ball down the first baseline, -but Sierra made the diving snag to save a .run from scoring and end the inning.
" * “It was definitely a battle between two good pitchers, but we made some great plays on defense,” Edwards said. “In a pitching battle it always comes down to an error, and that’s what happened.”
Smith was equally tough on the Unicorns, who scattered just five hits, left three run-
points and 12 rebounds, and Has-san Adams added 14 points.
The Wildcats (28-3) are in the round of eight for the first time since 2001, when they lost to Duke in the national championship game.
Tbrin Francis had 25 points on 10-of-11 shooting — more than double his average — and IO rebounds to lead the Irish (24-10). Chris Thomas added 20 points.
► Kentucky 63, Wisconsin 57
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With Kei-th Bogans watching helplessly from the bench in the second half, Kentucky turned to the power of Marquis Estill to ward off Wisconsin.
Estill scored a career-high 28 points and the Wildcats ran their winning streak to 26 games, holding off the scrappy Badgers to advance to the regional final.
Mike Wilkinson had a layup and Devin Harris made two spectacular driving baskets to pull the Badgers
within 52-50 with just under seven minutes to go.
The Wildcats then went inside to the 6-foot-9, 240-pound Estill, who made 12-of-18 shots.
► Marquette 77, Pittsburgh 74
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Not since the days of Al McGuire has Marquette made it this far.
Dwyane Wade scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half to lead the third-seeded Golden Eagles to a 77-74 victory over second-seeded Pittsburgh Thursday in the Midwest Regional semifinals.
Chevon Troutman scored seven of his 15 points in the final 2:56 to lead a furious Panthers rally, but Marquette hung on as Pittsburgh was eliminated in the round of 16 for the second straight season.
The lovable coach McGuire led Marquette to the 1977 national title, and the Golden Eagles hadn’t been to a regional final since.

“He (Smith) was a quality pitcher and pitched a great game,” Bevil said. “He had a really good curve that was keeping us off balance.”

- * Koepp played baseball and
- was a member of the track -And field team through his 3ui dor year, but concentrated 2m just football his senior year. * “Erie always had an even-temperament off the field,” Wright said. “He was never
; loud and he was always calm.
* But he always worked hard I on and off the field.”
Head coach Tim Kessinger I is the wmmngest active coach ^ in NAIA, compiling a 214-53-*3 record in 27 seasons at ZBethany College. 'Die Swedes *4mve won 16 playoff' games, *43 KCAC Conference Cham-•Jwonahips and ha ve never had ^J losing season.
*: Koepp said it was Bethany’s winning tradition and the pos
sibility of playing his freshman year that drew him to Lindsborg, Kansas.
“Coach Kessinger said he doesn’t like to do redshifts, unless it’s for medical reasons. With a lot of hard work, they said I had a good chance to play my first year,” Koepp said. ‘They’re going to look at me as an offensive lineman, but with my size, they’re also going to look at me as a defensive lineman.”
Koepp was one of 20 seniors on Canyon’s varsity team this past season and one of two starters on the offensive line.
“We have to have somebody step up and take his place,” Wright said. “We had some pretty good games on offense this year because of our offensive line. We’re going to miss our two tackles, both Erie and Stephen Ayala.”
