A&M men in Austin for Short Course
By Troy Miller
After jumping to No. 15 in
the nation after a second place
finish to the defending NCAA
champion Texas Longhorns at
the Big 12 Championships, the
Texas A&M men’s swimming
team is headed to the home pool
of the Longhorns to compete in
the American Short Course
Championships. The meet is a
warm up for the upcoming
NCAA Championships in
Athens, Ga.
So far, only senior Riley
Janes, No. 6 in the 100-yard
backstroke, and the 200-yard
medley relay team have auto
matically qualified for the
NCAA meet.
Many other Aggies are close
to qualifying and hope to use
this weekend to post times good
enough to automatically qualify
for the NCAA field.
“We have some guys that
we’re pretty sure made it at the
conference meet,” said assistant
head coach Jay Holmes.
“They’re still going to go to this
meet and try to go a little faster
to make sure that they get picked
up for NCAAs.”
Many Aggies have already
posted individual high NCAA
consideration times this season.
Resting since the Big 12
Championships, the Aggies are
looking to swim seasonal and
lifetime bests this weekend in
Austin and creep over the edge
into the NCAA Championships.
“I could easily see [freshman
Alfredo Jacobo] going over
there and going faster,”
Holmes said.
Jacobo is currently No. 19
in the 100-yard breaststroke
They’re still going
to go to this
meet and try
to go a little
faster to make
sure that they
get picked up
for NCAAs.
— Jay Holmes
assistant men’s swimming
and diving coach
with an A&M record time of
54.73, just .42 seconds behind
the NCAA automatic qualify
ing mark.
Another Aggie looking to
qualify this weekend is sopho
more Matt Rose. Despite beat
ing rival Ian Crocker of Texas
in the 100-yard freestyle at the
Big 12 Championships, Rose
is still behind the automatic
mark of 43.64. Rose is cur
rently No. 12 in the nation
with a mark of 43.7 1.
Rose is also No. 17 in the
50-yard freestyle, which he
lost to Crocker at the Big 12
Championships by .03. His
best time of 19.96 is .22
behind the NCAA automatic
qualifying time.
Senior Patrick Kennedy is
ranked in the top 50 in four sep
arate events. Kennedy is No. 25
in the 200-yard freestyle. No. 30
in the 100-yard backstroke. No.
31 in the 200-yard back and No.
49 in the 500-yard freestyle.
Other Aggies looking for
NCAA qualifying times are
sophomore Scott Mueller, No.
21 in the 200-yard individual
medley, and Janes, who despite
already qualifying in the 100-
yard back, is looking to qualify
in the 100-yard free and 50-yard
free as well.
The Aggie relay teams will
not see much action this week
end as all four are figured to
qualify for NCAAs.
“Most of those relays are
going to be fine where they are,”
Holmes said.
There will be six events each
day Thursday through Saturday
with preliminaries starting at 9
a.m. and finals beginning at
6:30 p.m. at the Lee and Joe
Jamail Texas Swimming Center
in Austin.
Senior Patrick Kennedy is part of the Aggie men’s swimming team that will
be competing in the American Short Course Championships in Austin.
Red Sox continue searching for new manager
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — The
Boston Red Sox received permission
Wednesday to talk with Cleveland bench
coach Grady Little in their effort to hire a
new manager by the weekend.
That does not mean he is the leading
candidate to succeed Joe Kerrigan, who
was fired Tuesday by the team’s new
owners, interim general manager Mike
Port said.
Oakland bench coach Ken Macha has
been mentioned as a possibility, Boston
interim manager Mike Cubbage said he
wants a chance, and Port said individuals
are being considered who do not need
permission to talk with the Red Sox.
“The process is inching along,” Port
He said it was unlikely a manager
will be named Thursday but he didn’t
rule out Friday.
“By the weekend would be ideal,” he
The Red Sox want to conduct a com
prehensive but speedy search with their
first game looming April 1, just 26 days
after the Indians told Port he could inter
view the 52-year-old Little.
“We gave a glowing recommenda
tion,” Cleveland general manager Mark
Shapiro said, “I can’t think of anyone
who is better qualified for the job than
Grady Little.”
Starting in 1980, Little managed 16
years in the minors, 10 in the Atlanta sys
tem. He became San Diego’s bullpen
coach in 1996 and bench coach in Boston
from 1997 through 1999 and in Cleveland
the past two years.
Macha, 51, managed in the Boston
system at Double-A Trenton in 1995
and 1996 and at Triple-A Pawtucket in
1997 and 1998. He went to Oakland in
1999. In the Red Sox organization, he
had current Boston players Nomar
Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Trot Nixon
and Lou Merloni.
“1 haven’t heard anything. They haven’t
even called to contact us,” Macha said after
Oakland’s 10-2 win over the Arizona
Diamondbacks in Phoenix on Thursday. “I
guess it’s down to the short list.”

“It’s a sign of what this team
can be when we get Andy
(Slocum) playing,” Watkins
said. “He has been a contributor,
especially in rebounding and
defensively. He still struggles a
little offensively with the hand,
but it’s definitely a big plus hav
ing him in there.”
Tech head coach Bob Knight
has had a successful first season
at the helm in Lubbock, helping
the Red Raiders to their most
conference wins since the
1996-1997 season. Just last sea
son, the Red Raiders came into
the tournament as the No. 12
seed. Tech enters this year as
the No. 5 seed.
With a much improved
defense, the Red Raiders have
become a formidable opponent
and have the league’s best
assist-to-turnover ratio. Knight
said the defense of his team
and every other team becomes
more significant in the post
“Every defensive play is of
paramount importance right
now,” Knight said. “It’s one
loss and you’re out, so being
difficult to score on is the most
important thing in a team's
success. It’s that way from the
first game of the season until
the last game of the NCAA
“Certainly, there are teams
around the country that have the
capability to beat any other team
around. When two teams like
that play each other, it’s going to
be the team that is the best
defensively that wins the game.”
The winner of Thursday’s
contest will play No. 12
Oklahoma State on Friday.

this week’s Big 12 tournament.
“I’ll be sure to thank my team.”
As announced earlier, the
media panel also made Gooden,
the league leader in both scoring
and rebounding, a unanimous
choice as Big 12 player of the
year. Texas point guard T.J. Ford
drew all but one vote for freshman
of the year and Oklahoma’s Ebi
Ere outpolled Ivan McFarlin of
Oklahoma State for Big 12 new
comer of the year.
Williams’ decision to stay at
Kansas may turn out to be one of
the best things ever to happen not
only to the Jayhawks, but the
profession as well. With a 14-
year record of 382-91, he has the
third-highest winning percentage
of active Division I coaches with
at least five years of experience.
“Roy Williams is a great
coach,” said Oklahoma’s Kelvin
Sampson. “For his players to be
up night after night and with
stand every challenge in the
league they have this year is real
ly unbelievable. It also says a lot
about the kind of kids he’s
brought into his program.”
Iowa State coach Larry
Eustachy says there should be no
argument as to who is the
Jayhawks’ most valuable player.
“That team has a special
togetherness that I haven’t seen
since I’ve been here. And it starts
with Roy,” Eustachy said. “They
work hard.”
