Come on, how would you like to take a little Sunday drive along “Don Mattingly Way"? It can now be done, though it will require you to find your way to Evansville, Ind. Hey, there's a price to pay for everything in life. The Evansville City Council voted Monday to rename a stretch of road that stretches by a baseball field where Mattingly used to play and then wraps around a park. “It's where I grew up over there,” Mattingly said. “I played Little League at that park.

Try to tell folks in this graying industrial city about Robert K. Dornan and Loretta Sanchez, and they will tell you they have heard it all before. A super-close congressional election. The winner heading to Washington unsure of final victory. The loser crying foul. "I don't think about it much anymore," said Rick McIntyre, a youthful-looking judge in a town just north of here. "But that was one of the nastiest fights I was ever caught up in."

Dale Ervine and Hubert Rotteveel scored second-half goals and goal-keeper Dave Vanole recorded his eighth shutout of the season Sunday as UCLA topped SMU, 2-0, in an NCAA Division I quarterfinal playoff match at UCLA. The victory qualified the second-ranked Bruins for the NCAA semifinals for the second consecutive year. UCLA (18-1-4) will meet top-ranked Evansville next Sunday at a site to be determined. Evansville (21-0-2) advanced by eliminating Penn State, 1-0, earlier Sunday.

Drexel Coach Eddie Burke said his team's victory over Navy certainly was an upset, but it didn't come as a surprise--to him, anyway. The Dragons overcame 44 points and 14 rebounds by David Robinson Wednesday night to hang an 83-80 defeat on the No. 18-ranked Middies at Philadelphia. "Absolutely not," Burke said when asked if he was surprised. "We played with some fine teams this year and we've just started coming into our own."

Nolan Richardson's teams have won some big games during his eight years as Arkansas' coach, but none was as important to Richardson as Sunday's 86-80 victory over No. 9 Arizona at Tucson. "To me, this is probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest, wins . . . simply because we were an unknown," Richardson said. "I didn't know if we had the squad to win here. We didn't have an identity. But now I think we've changed the expectations of some people."

Last-second heroics in the NCAA tournament usually involve a player sinking a game-winning shot at the buzzer. Tulane's Pointer Williams made his mark a little differently. Williams reached in and stripped the ball from Anthony Beane as he attempted a three-pointer with less than two seconds to play. A scramble ensued, and time ran out before Kansas State could shoot again.

It is difficult enough to play the home team in the opening round of its own tournament. And it is even more difficult when that team happens to be Evansville, the No. 2-ranked men's soccer team in the country. Evansville (8-0-2) had little trouble defeating Cal State Northridge, 2-0, in the first round of the Aces' Soccer Classic on Friday night in Evansville, Ind. Evansville led Northridge, 1-0, at halftime. The Aces, ranked second nationally behind Santa Clara, outshot Northridge, 10-5.

Evansville's Purple Aces, who battled through an injury-plagued season, found a different sort of togetherness during the Midwestern Collegiate Conference tournament. Evansville players were stuck in an elevator at their hotel three hours before their game against No. 22 Xavier in Saturday night's championship game.

Notre Dame was virtually eliminated from an NCAA tournament berth Monday night when the Irish lost to Evansville, 74-56. Parrish Casebier scored 31 of his 41 points in the first half to lead the Aces, who finished the regular season 22-5 and put themselves in strong contention for an NCAA bid. Without the victory, Evansville--the regular-season Midwestern Collegiate Conference champion--had little hope for making the NCAA field unless it could win the upcoming MCC tournament in Cincinnati.

A field-goal shooting effort of 28% and 20 turnovers cost Cal State Northridge in its third consecutive loss, 60-44 to Evansville before 8,256 at Roberts Stadium on Monday night. "I don't know what happened," Northridge forward Keith Gibbs said. "We just stunk it up. Some of it was their tight defense, but not a lot of it." The Matadors were unable to take advantage of a team that missed 10 of its first 12 shots and turned the ball over seven times in the first 10 minutes.

Courtesy of Cal State Northridge, a crowd of 8,256 was rewarded for sitting through one of the worst shooting performances in Roberts Stadium history. By scoring fewer than 50 points in a loss to Evansville on Monday night, the Matadors enabled the Purple Aces' fans to cash their ticket stubs in for chicken dinners at a local chain of restaurants. The 60-44 loss represented the Matadors' lowest scoring output since UC Riverside held them to 42 points on Jan. 24, 1986. CSUN shot 28.

Cornell Hatcher and freshman Bryant Reeves provided surprising front-court scoring Thursday night in leading No. 13 Oklahoma State to an 86-57 victory over Evansville in the first round of the Big Apple NIT at Stillwater, Okla. The Cowboys will play Purdue at home in a second-round game Saturday night. Purdue beat Ball State, 56-48, on Thursday. Hatcher, perhaps the Cowboys' best defender, came off the bench and scored all of his career-high 10 points in the first half.
