The men's tennis team expects to progress mentally and physically and hopes to finish the season as a top contender in the Atlantic-10 conference tournament.

Women's basketball focuses on A-10 play

The University of Richmond women's basketball team had a slow start this season, but is aiming for a big finish: the Atlantic-10 conference title and an invitation to play in the NCAA Tournament. With a 13-5 overall record, the team entered conference play early this month and claimed three successive wins against George Washington University, the University of Massachusetts and the University of Rhode Island. Players such as Brittani Shells, Crystal Goring and Abby Oliver contributed high scores during each game, but the team attributed a unique chemistry both on and off the courts to its success. "I think all really great teams have good chemistry," coach Michael Shafer said.

Andrew Luck: The richest first-year architect

Cam Newton's decision to enter the NFL Draft last week was no surprise. There was nothing left for him to accomplish during his senior year at Auburn University, except to perhaps become connected to his father's reported $180,000 pay-for-play scheme with Mississippi State University. Newton won't be leaving Auburn with a bachelor's degree in his major, social and behavioral sciences, but he owns a Heisman Trophy and a piece of national championship history. Newton led Auburn to a 14-0 season, throwing for 30 touchdowns and almost 3,000 yards.
