Top executives said today that
Goodyear will feel the financial impact

Goodyear says the company hopes
to save 610 (m) million dollars over

Radford vs. Liberty With the students still out on

was a little slim for one of the
biggest rivalry games of the year.

The Flames Anthony Smith was a
beast tonight. He gets the ball down
low and drives the baseline for the
dunk. Smith had 17. And even Reverend
Falwell had to exhale on that one

Kenny Thomas did all he could to

keep the Highlanders in it as he gets
the inbounds pass and scores two of his
team high 18 on the circus shot.

But Radford only scored 17 in the
whole first half. They got 49 after
intermission as Reggie McIntyre dropped
in two of his 15. *CG final Radford
