David 7578153 Tom 8284166 David Cad and David 90 We did get some satisfaction in beating our district New Braunfels Coach Cliff Wilkins Kerrville which had beaten the Unicorns all finished fifth at Beeville won the team competition after trailing by seven strokes following the first clays play at the Brackenridge Golf New Braunfels needed to make up eight strokes on the second day to qualify for the state but only could gain We just couldnt quite get Wilkins Beeville shot two consistent But it was a good Finishing behind New Braunfels in the team competition were 641 Kerrville 658 Rio Grande 677 698 Gregory 701 Laredo 706 Alamo Heights Tom Labinski taped a picture of Portlands Audie Norris to my computer terminal last Maybe youd like to throw darts at it or Tom It was a sincere gesture more than youd ex pect from a I almost took him up on The thought of damaging an already uncooperative terminal was the only thing that stopped Tom and I are both Dallas Mavericks and who hasnt played worth a flip all hit a buzzer beater to eliminate the Mavs from the NBA playoffs last The Trailblazers won the bestoffive series and with the right to get creamed by the LA now that a week has the Mavs elimination doesnt really seem so The Mavericks never would have gotten by Los save for an earthquake cracking open under the Lakers team I knew that before the season This was to have been the My goals for Dallas were simple have a winning make the playoffs in the thats being redundant everybody above makes the and maybe win the opening They accomplished two of But next next year was going to be dif This as has been the case every the Mavericks didnt have a But they had something as or so they They had Clevelands firstround draft That pick was supposed to be Dallas ticket to the Patrick Ewing One of the seven teams that didnt make the playoffs will win a lottery for the first and the prize will be Georgetowns All America There are two types of players in this years draft and everyone And Dallas looked like a sure thing to make the The Cavs hadnt made the playoffs in eight and they stumbled to a 219 But their young players suddenly started and the Cavs shocked the league and horrified Dallas fans by making the Byebye So now Mavs fans are faced with another year of watching the team get chewed up down the stretch by the leagues dominating You Dallas has gone about as far as it can with its current The Mavericks led the league in three point shooting this They committed the fewest turnovers in the league for the third straight They make you beat And thats what the teams with dominating centers Down the the Mavs shoot 15foot jumpers with defenders draped all over the other guys just keep feeding Kareem or Moses or Akeem and get slam dunks and Everybody accuses Mavericks fans of whining over their But they deserve They went through a nightmarish first Dallas top draft choice Kiki Vandeweghe wouldnt and the Mavs won only 15 games with a collection of hasbeens and The misery and a coin flip earned Dallas the top but that year it didnt There was no franchise center out so the Mavs took DePauls Mark Aguirre has blossomed into a topnotch but thats an easier hole to The following the Mavs improved to three established teams did so Dallas only got the fourth Tough How tough Last Houston won 29 games even with Ralph and that got the Rockets into a coin flip for the first The Rockets won and got Akeem Now they have two Finishing fourth in the 1982 draft sweepstakes was bad but it got That year was a threeplayer draft North Carolinas James Georgias Dominique Wilkins and DePauls Terry It dropped off sharply after And it still got The Mavericks made their only draft day taking Wyoming forward Bill Garnett over Texas center LaSalle Garnett never got off the Maverick and was traded to Thompson will never be another Bill but hes been an adequate center for the Kansas City I mean Sacramento He would have made a fine interim center while the Mavs were hunting for The The past few the Mavs have drafted quality players Derek Rolando Dale Sam Perkins but theyve never found a topnotch So they use forwards like Pat Kurt Nimphius or and get beaten in the Thats why Clevelands making the playoffs this year hurts so Even if Dallas hadnt gotten there are other good centers Maverick fans would have gladly settled for SMUs Jon Arkansass Joe Kleine or Johns Bill But theyll probably be among the first seven If that the Mavs may get They may make a They might try to sign a freeagent center like the Knicks Bill Or they could go for a which in NBA parlance is known as a If they get really they could gamble on a guy like Manute a 7foot6 freshman from Sudan thats as in not Bol is a pipe cleaner with arms and He weighs all of 190 played for a Division III school Bridgeport and turned pro because he needs the money to get his sister out of his strifetorn One scout calls him the ultimate It would be an appropriate Bols physique and Dallas chances of getting a topflight center this year look a lot alike real Quebec clips Montreal MONTREAL AP After seven games and then the Quebec Nordiques needed one more lift from their star And Peter Stastny came After misfiring on the first Stastny reloaded and scored with his second one to bring the latest edition of the Battle of Quebec to a Stastny poked in a Pat Price rebound at of overtime to the Nordiques to a 32 victory in the seventh game of the Adams Division final and send Quebec into the National Hockey League Wales Conference Quebec opens that series against the Patrick Division champion Philadelphia Flyers at home on Sunday I won the faceoff and I just wanted to get in front of the net to screen Montreal gpaltender said who has three goals and 16 assists in the the puck was in front of the net I took a swing at it and I I was hoping Alain Cote would be able to push it in but the puck came back to me and I just put it It was a but largely civilized ending to what had been a bitterly injuryfilled Even Michel the Nordiques whose tough talk and winningistheonlything attitude has earned him the nickname Le Tigre the could only purr platitudes when it was all Its too bad there had to be a loser because Montreal played a magnificent Bergeron We beat a great The Nordiques won without Dale their feisty and with highscoring left wing Michel Goulet playing despite a sore who missed Game 6 with an infected right gave it a try in the first Strong finishes Denver win down stretch DETROIT AP The Detroit who had been all but given up for find themselves with new hope after getting the kiss of life from Terry who specializes in fourthquarter came through again Thursday scoring 16 of his 18 points in the final period to lift Detroit to a 125117 National Basketball Association victory over the turnoverprone Boston The victory left the Celtics with a 21 edge in the bestof seven Eastern Conference semifinal series with Game 4 scheduled for Sunday in Joe Louis In the only other Denver beat Utah 131123 in overtime to take a 20 edge in their Western Conference Its one but its one that we had to Detroit Coach Chuck Daly I thought that the guys played We just keep working to get the game at Detroit won the game with a strong second The game was tied 6262 at intermission and the Celtics held a commanding 3119 rebounding It was another story in the final two as the Pistons took control of the The Celtics also hurt themselves with an un characteristic 23 turnovers which resulted in 20 Detroit We dug our own Boston Coach Jones Dennis Johnson was high for Boston with 27 points and Larry Bird added Nuggets 131 Jazz 123 Guard Lafayette Lever scored six of his 22 points in overtime and center Wayne Cooper hit a pair of long range jump shots early in the extra session to lead which will host Games 3 and 4 Saturday and had tied the game at 119119 on a pair of free throws by Thurl Bailey after leading by as many as seven points twice in the fourth But the who went cold in the final seven fell behind in overtime and never got back in the Utah Coach Frank Layden gave his team a dressing down in the locker In this age of the very highpaid people are sometimes afraid to point things out to them that they failed Layden Im not afraid to talk to my players about areas in which they I think they all have to earn their I believe in the fact that each individual has personal Were down 20 and now we have to go back to Utah and shrink this series to a threegame series tied at While Utah was suffering from turnovers and missed Lever sank four free
