Broken tooth sidelines Oppenheim

If you’ve been checking the Web.com Tour results the last month or so you’re probably wondering what’s wrong with Andover native Rob Oppeheim, who missed three cuts in four tournaments, making only $2,310 not to mention he’s not playing this weekend’s Brasil Classic in San Pao, Brazil.

Oppenheim broke his tooth while eating a nut in Panama, during the first tournament of the season. He couldn’t get it repaired until he got home.

Well, that got infected and a twitch developed in the eye above the tooth.

“The dentist thought that it would be all set a few weeks ago, but he wouldn’t put the crown while the infection continued,” said Jim Oppenheim, Rob’s father.

Oppenheim had a root canal yesterday and expects to return to action next week at the WNB Classic in Midland, Tex.

Student buses headed for Pittsburgh

The UMass Lowell Division of Student Affairs is sponsoring a great deal for students who want to attend the Frozen Four in Pittsburgh beginning on Thursday.

UMass Lowell, which is coming off back-to-back weekends with winning the Hockey East Tournament at the T.D. Garden and then the Div. 1 NCAA Northeast Regional in Manchester, N.H., will be playing in the Frozen Four with Yale, Quinnipiac and St. Cloud.

The student bus trip includes tickets to the games on Thursday and Saturday, one seat on the bus and up to two nights at the Residence Inn (four students per room) for only $150.

Two coach buses will depart from campus at midnight on Wednesday night headed for Pittsburgh. The bus will return to the Lowell campus after the UMass Lowell run is complete.
