(AP)— Police investigating the murders of University of Miami football player Marlin Barnes and a female friend have interviewed the woman’s ex boyfriend. Barnes and Timwanika Lumpkins, both 22, were killed Saturday with a blunt instrument, police said. The 6-foot, 210-pound reserve linebacker was found dead in his campus apartment by his roommate. Lumpkins died on the way to a hospital. Both were bashed severely about the head and upper torso, said po lice spokesman Mike McDonald. No murder weapon was found, and there have been no arrests. Bames was seen leaving a South Beach nightclub Friday night. He had attended a party there as part of a charity event culminating in a Miami Dolphins-Dallas Cowboys basketball game. The woman’s ex-boyfriend, Anthony Dennis, was questioned by homicide detectives and has ac counted for all his time Friday and Saturday, McDonald said. “He appears to be OK. He ’ s very cooperative,” McDonald said. Lumpkins’ grandmother, Eliza beth McQueen, said last week that her granddaughter said Dennis had roughed her up and that she was going to seek a restraining order. A woman who lived below the apartment Lumpkins and Dennis shared until recently said the two often argued violently. “He used to try to scare her,” Patrice Williams said. “But she was crazy about him.” Homicide investigators said they hadn ’t ruled anyone out as suspects. “They are checking up on ex boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, people who might have had grudges against them,” McDonald said, “telephone records, everything.” Bulldog star enters draft STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State junior Dontae’ Jones has hired an agent, ensuring the end of his collegiate basketball career. Jones, who in his only season helped the Bulldogs reach their first NCAA Final Four, said in a state ment that he would skip his senior season at Mississippi State and en ter the NBA draft. Jones averaged 14.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season, but was at top form during the postseason, earning most valuable player honors at both the South eastern Conference tournament and the NCAA Southeast Regional. After the Bulldogs lost to Syra cuse in the national semifinals on March 30, Jones said his decision on t he NBA draft depended on when he would be drafted. Golf team takes first at tourney From Staff Reports The Nebraska men ’ s gol f team won the Shocker Classic on Tuesday in Wichita, Kan., with a four-day total of 896, blowing away Drake, which fin ished second at 913. Comhusker freshman Josh Mad den won the individual title with a 221. Madden tied Steve Friesen and Jacques Paiement of Nebraska and Chris Peterson of Iowa State, but picked up a birdie on the first playoff hole to claim the title. Nebraska’s Trent Morrison finished 28th and Ryan Nietfeldt placed 61st. The Huskers, who led by only six strokes going into the final day of competition, shot a 298 Tuesday to secure the championship. Iowa State placed third, Kansas State fourth and Kansas fifth. Huskers play today From Staff Reports The Nebraska softball team steps out of conference play today as the Cornhuskers play host to Northern Iowa in a doubleheader starting at 1:30 p.m. at the NU Softball Complex. Nebraska, 29-13 overall and 5-2 in the Big 12, is coming off a weekend in which it won two ofthree games against Texas A&M. After today’s doubleheader, the Huskers travel to Oklahoma for three games over the weekend with the Soon crs. Nebraska plays Creighton at home next Wednesday. Berringer Continued from Page 7 City, Mo., said he expected Berringer to be drafted between the third and sixth rounds. “From everything I’ve heard, this is going to be a strange draft,” Kremer said. “Wide receivers and offensive tackles arc very strong in the draft. But it doesn’t look as if a quarterback will be taken until the second round, which won’t help Brook.” Kremer said he had received in quiries about the 6-foot-4,220-pound Berringer from the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals. Both Berringer and Kremer said professional teams had expressed con cern over Berringer’s lack of playing experience. During Nebraska’s march to its sec ond national championship, Berringer, backing up Tommie Frazier, played in 10 games but never started. Berringer averaged 3.9 yards on 21 carries and completed 51 percent of his passes for 252 yards, no interceptions or touch downs. With Frazier on the shelf for much of the 1994 season, Berringer started seven games, completing 62 percent of his passes for 1,295 yards and 10 touchdowns. Although he didn’t start in the Orange Bowl, Berringer, who is the No. 10 all-time leading passer in Comhusker history, led Nebraska to its first touchdown. ~-“If what they’re looking at is an athlete and somebody who can play the position, then they would like to have me,” Berringer said. “Sure, they would like to have seen me get more experience, but that didn’t happen.” Berringer said he had no prefer ence among the NFL teams. “I would just be happy getting drafted,” Berringer said. “It would be nice to go a little higher, but you just never know.” Although his workouts at the NFL Combines in Indianapolis in February went well, Berringer said, he sti 11 hasn ’t heard from any one team that has a strong interest. I But Krcmcr said that was common for players not expected to be selected in the first round. “Very seldom do you hear ofa team expressing interest in a player,” Krcmer said. “Usually, a player is taken by a team you have never heard from that pops up and takesjou ”... w Physically, Berringer said he would need to improve before taking on the linemen and linebackers of the NFL. “Everybody at this level is going to need to work on something,” Berringer said. “I’m not concerned, but all I’m looking for is an opportunity.” Berringer graduated in December, and has spent most of his time in Goodland since the Huskers’ Fiesta Bowl win. He was in Lincoln last month to work out for pro scouts at Cook Pavilion and will be back again later this week for Friday night’s “Night of Champions” celebration at Memorial Stadium. He will be awarded a champion ship ring, saluted for a second straight national title and may make a surprise appearance on stage. Berringer is friends with Mark Miller, the lead singer of Sawyer Brown, the county music group that will perform at the end of the celebra tion. Berringer said Miller had been urging the quarterback to show otThis musical talent for the crowd. Strickland Continued from Page 7 was named the MVP of the postseason tournament. Nee said he had not talked to Strickland since Nebraska’s final game on March 29. But Nee said Strickland’s MVP performance helped increase his draft position. Both Boone and Strickland can use this time of year to fine-tune things for a possible NBA career, Nee said. “Now is the time of year to work on basic fundamentals and stay sharp,” Nee said. “They have just played bas ketball for six months, and everyone knows they have the ability to move on.” The final major camp before the draft, Blake said, is in Chicago during the first week of June. Strickland said he had been invited to that camp. Although the tryout camps are im portant, Nee said, scouts already know how Boone and Strickland are capable of playing. “It comes down to who can get a > little break,” Nee said. “They’ve seen them play for four years.” Kansas Continued from Page 7 Nebraska struck first in the second inning when third baseman Pete Jenkins drilled an RBI double, scoring Todd Sears, who doubled earlier in the inning. Kansas responded with a run in the bottom of the third when shortstop Joe DeMarco scored after a Josh Dalton error on a grounder by Isaac Byrd. Kansas starter Mario Opirari pitched six innings, allowing five hits and one run with three strikeouts. Opirari, who entered Tuesday’s game with a 10.80 eamed-run average, made a strong bid for his first victory of the season, but ended with a no decision. The Huskers went up 2-1 in the top of the eighth on a walk to Jenkins with the bases loaded, scoring left fielder Matt Meyer, who was hit by a pitch to reach base. But Kansas battled back, scoring in the bottom half of the inning after Driscoll walked Byrd and committed an error, which allowed the Jayhawk center fielder to moved to third base. Byrd scored on a sacrifice fly by Josh Kliner. The Huskers loaded the bases in the eight and ninth inning with only out but failed to score both times. In the tenth, Kansas’ Nick Frank reached base on an error by Husker second baseman Larry Hartzell. Eric Vann pinch ran and moved to third when Byrd reached first on another error by Driscoll. After an intentional walk to Kliner that loaded the bases with no one out. Josh Dimmick singled up the middle to end the game. Casey Barrett pitched 2 2/3 innings to earn the win for the Jayhawks, im proving his record to 2-2. Driscoll fell to 2-2. Nebraska center fielder Francis Collins singled in the ninth inning and finished the game 1 for 3, extending his hitting streak to 22 games. “John (Sanders) is a formidable opponent,” Kansas coach Bobby Randall said.
