Pete But I thought it was a typical first game for an inexperienced ball We still have some Our pitchers arent in as good a shape as I thought Armando Martinez ran out of gas earlier than I thought he would and our hitting is too We got enough of them eight but not as many as we should Going two straight innings without a the Unicorns were looking at the bottom of the third before they finally caught a piece of the ball and scored some But when they it was a 20 Smashing the sixth pitch into right first baseman Chris Winkler led off the inning with a stole second and third and came home on a Doug Campbell sacrifice Then pitcher Armando Martinez circled the bases on a bounced single through a Campbells sacrifice and a grounded single to left field by Rubin Zavalas steal attempt on Michael Cardenas first pitch failed and retired the Slightly overconfident in the quick according to NB began to have problems in the top of the Martinez began to tire on the mound and allowed five hits and

Coach Dick Motta will tell anyone who will listen that a 20point lead in the National Basketball Association doesnt mean a thing and his team almost proved the The Mavericks had the Houston Rockets on the ropes after three piling up an easy 10377 but Dallas failed to land the knockout punch and Houston roared shaving Dallas lead to five in the final minute Tuesday Two free throws by Brad Davis with 38 seconds remaining held off the as Dallas captured its club record 29th victory of the season with a 123115 I cant get you guys to believe that a 20point lead isnt anything in this Motta With a 3point a couple of and a couple of long shots by some guys trying to fatten up their and before you know its down to Then its winnable for the other Forward Jay Vincent scored 13 of his gamehigh 27 points during the Mavericks thirdperiod but he and most of Dallas starters were on the bench early in the fourth I tried to warn Motta I put in a lot of new but when you put in younger youd think theyd use the time as a training ground to improve their If I had stayed with my substitution we could have won by Hot shooting by Terry Teagle and Calvin Murphy and aggressive inside play by Billy Paultz and Major Jones brought the Rockets to We got the momentum back when Paultz and Major got Rockets Coach Del Harris Terry and Calvin generated some offense for the first we had some insideoutside things Harris Teagle scored 18 of his teamhigh 24 points in the fourth including a 3point goal with 46 seconds left that capped a 3512 Houston run and closed the score to Murphy and Harris werent around to see the Following an errant attempt by Murphy and heated arguments with referees Tommy Nunez and Wally the two were ejected with six seconds Murphy thought he was fouled on the Mark Aguirre added 26 points to the cause of the who raised their record to Wally Walker scored 20 for Just jealous Sutton says other SWC coaches envy him HOUSTON Coach Eddie Sutton says he doesnt in timidate Southwest Conference basketball officials and those coaches who say he does are guilty of I think there is a lot of jealousy in this Sutton said in a telephone interview Tuesday with Houston Radio Station KIKK sport scaster Mark We have won the league championship five of the last six years and Houston never has won They were picked to win it last year and the The Hogs are 1006 under Sutton in home games played at Barnhill site of Thursdays Southwest Conference showdown against the 1 ranked SWC coaches have accused Sutton with intimidating especially with the backing of a vocal home I dont think I get on the officials any harder than Houston Coach Guy Lewis does or Texas Tech coach Gerald Myers or several other coaches in our Sutton I have coaches that go through and grade officials and we dont get any more good calls than bad Houston is 07 Jin games played at Fayetteville and Sutton thinks that record will be the Cougar players minds in Thursdays There have been times in the past when Houston should have beaten Arkansas here in Sutton But it got to the latter stages of the and I think deep in their hearts they said to themselves that they wanted to win but they thought weve got the hex and we cant An Arkansas victory would repay the Cougars a 1978 Houston victory in UHs Hofheinz The Razorbacks had just been named the 1 team in The Associated Press poll and the Cougars upset the Sutton said he hoped officials would call a close game in Thursdays If they dont call a close game we have no chance to Sutton If it is a physical then Houston will win the game
