18 The Index-Journal, Greenwood, Suddeth, Simmons join panel Ed Suddeth of the Greenwood City Police Department and Hugh Simmons of the Greenwood County Sheriffs Department are this year's guest pickers on The Index-Journal Pigskin Pick'ems panel. Suddeth, a master patrolman; and Simmons, a sargeant who is also the DARE officer for Greenwood County, joined six Index-Journal staffers. The panel includes David Hays, sports editor. Brant Long, staff sports writer, Jason Peevy, Patricia Edwards and Stacey Ledvina of the news staff; and Joseph Sitarz, graphics editor. There is one notable difference in this year's panel. Jay Siltzer, the 1992 champion, won't be able to defend his title. He is now public relations director at the Connie Maxwell Children's Home. Sports Briefs Graves paces No. 6 Syracuse By The Associated Press Syracuse teaches ball security in its complex offensive attack, and they are pleased to trust with the ball to Marvin Graves. The senior quarterback had arguably the best game of his career Thursday night, accounting for a career-high five touchdowns as the sixth-ranked Orangemen (2-0) defeated East Carolina 41-22. "He was the difference. Every time you need a play he makes it, either with his feet, his hands or bis mind," East Carolina coach Steve Logan said. "He's a Heisman guy." Graves staked his team to a 14-0 first-quarter lead with TD passes of 27 and 57 yards, then took the game over in the second half after the Pirates (0-1) closed to 21-16. He completed all 10 of his passes in the second half, and his 38-yard scoring run with 7:37 left had East Carolina gasping for air. Graves finished 20 of 27 for 329 yards, the second-highest total of his career. In addition to his long fourth-quarter run. Graves also scored on a pair of perfectly executed option runs from the 3 and 4. Junior Smith rushed for a career-high 164 yards on 28 carries as East Carolina had 421 yards of total offense in a losing effort. G-BRAVES FALL BEHIND IN SERIES: Joe Ganote scattered six hits over 7 2-3 innings Thursday to lead the Knoxville Smokies to a 2-1 victory over Greenville in the third game of the Southern League's Eastern Division playoffs. The Smokies lead the best-of-five series two games to one. Knoxville can finish it off with another victory today at home. Knoxville scored both its runs in the bottom of the first. Greenville scored its only run in the eighth, on a Pedro Swann home run. Kevin Lomon allowed five hits and two runs over six innings for Greenville. RICHMOND BRAVES ELIMINATED: Sam Horn's single in the ninth inning scored the winning run Thursday and brought the Charlotte Knights an 11-10 win over the Richmond Braves and the International League West championship. The Braves came back after a 7-1 deficit going into the sixth inning, with Chipper Jones, Boi Rodriquez and Ryan Klesko all hitting home runs. Rodriguez tied the game in the ninth inning with an opposite field shoL FURMAN HIRES ASSISTANT BASEBALL COACH: Former minor league pitcher Derek Stroud has been hired as an assistant baseball coach at Furman, coach Ron Smith said Thursday. Stroud, 27, will be the Paladins pitching coach. A 21st round draft pick by the Chicago Cubs in 1987, Stroud pitched for six seasons for the Cubs organization and advanced as high as AA Charlotte before being released in 1992. He then pitched one season in the California Angels organization before being released this past June. A native of Pas Robles, Calif., Stroud pitched at the College of Se-quoyahs for two seasons and for one season at Fresno State before joining the professional ranks. Football (Continued from page 17) Tech 23-15 in their opener last week. Furman tries to break a string of failure against NCAA Division I-A teams against the Yellow Jackets. The Paladins also hope to erase the bitter memories from two years ago. Then, Furman led Georgia Tech 17-16 with less than two minutes left. However, quarierback Hugh Swilling fumbled after being hit by Yellow Jackets' defensive end Marco Coleman. Scon Sissons hit a 37-yard field goal with 21 seconds left for a 19-17 victory. "We were really fortunaie to be in that situation to begin with, but it was a touch one to lose because our guys played so hard." Furman coach Jimmy Satterfield said. "You really have to fear them and how they can wear you down with their talent." Furman opened with a 26-17 win against Connecticut, while Georgia Tech begins its season. The Citadel, a surprising 20-6 loser to Wofford last week, tries to rebound against Georgia Southern. The Eagles, playing their first season in the Southern Conference, tied The Citadel as the top-ranked team in the Division I-AA. Georgia Southern beat Savannah State 35-3 last week. The Citadel's potent wishbone offense gained just 210 yards and only 148 yards rushing.

Quarterback Adams Wiles accounted for 185 yards against The Citadel. He left the game with less than 10 minutes remaining with a sprained ankle. However, Wiles was cleared to start against Wingate. Charleston Southern and Presbyterian will both try and rebound from opening week losses. The Bucaneers, who stepped up to Division 1-AA from Division III this season, led Morgan Stat? 14-3 before losing by 34 points. "I think our defense was a little shellshocked at the end of the game," Charleston Southern coach David Dowd said. "It has been our strong point for the past two years. The squad was a little embarrassed and should come out fired up against Presbyterian." The Blue Hose lost to Fairmont Stave 20-17 a week ago, despite Presbyterian running back Marcus Gordon gaining 137 yards. Newberry will be looking for its first victory against Lenoir-Rhyne, which beat the Indians 26-11 last season. Lenoir-Rhyne beat Guilford 56-0 in its opener.
