Big weekend earns Hucles Player of the Week award

Angela Hucles' strong showing against then-No. 18 Stanford, in which she notched the game-winning goal as well as an assist, earned her ACC Player of the Week honors.

Morris ranked #1 by Lindy's

As the only returning All-ACC First Team basketball player, Lindy's is betting on Maryland's Terence Morris as the possible ACC Player of the Year. Morris finished last season averaging 15.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He also finished in the top 10 of the Conference in five different statistical categories including scoring and rebounds.

His play earned him a nod to the All-ACC first team last year, and he is the only player from that group returning for the coming season.

Underwood influenced by cult?

According to ESPN.com, Dimitrius Underwood's mother said yesterday that her son's attempted suicide was influenced by a "cult that's posing as a church."

Underwood was found bleeding Monday in Lansing, Mich., after slashing his own neck. This adds another strange chapter to Underwood's saga, which began when he left Viking training camp in August after only one day, citing conflicts between football and his religious views.

At press time, Underwood was reported to be in stable condition.

San Fran's Young visits neurologist

The Associated Press reported yesterday that Steve Young of the San Francisco 49ers visited a neurologist after receiving his fourth concussion in Monday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. The neurologist cleared Young to return to his position back in the pocket this week.

Young has taken quite a beating so far this season. The preceding week, the New Orleans Saints hit him 21 times, including five sacks.

Tech faces uncertain future

Amid concern for the vitality of the Atlantic 10 Conference, commissioner Linda Bruno suggested that Virginia Tech might be forced out as early as this summer to protect the interests of the A-10, reported The Associated Press. This would force Tech to either enter the Big East ahead of schedule or spend the 2000-01 season as an independent in all sports except football and wrestling.

The Hokies originally were scheduled to join the Big East as a full-time member in 2001.
