What's in Wally's name? Uh, some Cs and Zs
OXFORD Miami University's Wally Szczerbiak is rapidly becoming a household name, thanks to the All-American's two solid performances in last weekend's NCAA tournament.
So with Wally-Mania sweeping the nation and Miami headed to a clash against the University of Kentucky, the Enquirer asked about a dozen Miami students waiting for tickets at Millett Hall Monday: How do you spell Szczerbiak?
The results: Let's just say they should be glad they weren't competing in a spelling bee.
SCHZE ... That's a tough question. I know how to say it but I can't spell it. Travis Rhyan, 21, of Sidney, Ohio.
OC. Wait. I don't think that's right. Jason Fabrizio, 21.
WORLD. Laurie Finnessy, 22.
AK. I hope that's right; I'm an English major. Heather Wheaton, 20, Glen Allen, Va.
I don't know. I know there's a Z in there somewhere. Jamie Glorch, 20, of Barrington, Ill.
IAK. Mike McLenahan, 19, of Carmel, Ind.
