eight district games left in the season We shot better as a team than we have in a long said NB coach Cliff Wilkins In fact this may be one of our best overall efforts of the season as far as getting good contributions from several The Unicorns made 25 of 50 shots from the floor and hit crucial free throws down the stretch to put away the Rebels who had rallied to within 6863 with less than three minutes left in the game Shae Wilkins got the Unicorns going with three 3point baskets in the first period The senior guard finished five of six from beyond the arc and led the team with 23 points Ive been cold from out there lately but tonight the shot was open and I felt good letting it Wilkins said We had to win this one to give us a shot early in the district race Everyone played hard and we got Behind Wilkins hot hand New Braunfels jumped out to a 2313 firstquarter lead The Unicorns seemed in control until foul trouble set in midway through the sec ond quarter and gave Hays the momentum

atop district with victory over Canyon By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Smithson Valley stayed unbeaten in district with a 6450 win over the Canyon Cougars Tuesday night at Ranger gym The Rangers improved to 20 in district while Canyon fell to 11 Its still early in the Ranger coach John Valenzuela can happenlrom here on but were happy to be 20 right now vve consid ered Canyon to be the toughest team in the district right now so we are feeling Smithson Valley had four players in double fig ures Charlie Wood and Anthony Simpson led the Ranger attack with 16 and 17 points respectively Mike Fleming had 12 and Brandon Parrott scored 11 The Cougars faced foul trouble early on and had difficulty handling the Rangers defensive pressure Even so the Cougars had opportunities lo come back in the second half with the score 3021 We felt alright going into the half down by only nine because we had three starters in foul trouble ear ly Canyon coach Kenny Rotzlersaid But we stagnated in the third and they had a big third quar ter that was hard to come back from They out played us in every Marc Castijella was the games leading scorer with 19 points Corey Schwarz added 13 for he Cougars who shot 42 percent from the field and hud 17 total rebounds Valenzuela said the key to the win was defense We were stingy on he said It may be that they just had a bad shooting night but I feel good about the pressure we were able to put on The Cougars were held to nine points in the third quarter as the Rangers built a 16 point lead heading into the fourth On a down note for the Rangers Wood suffered a sprained ankle in the game and isnt expected to play Friday against Lockhart Unicorn girls fall to Hays The New Braunfels Unicom girls came up against a tough Hays Lady Rebel defense and suffered a 54 33 loss Tuesday night The Unicorns fell to 13 in distrct while Hays evened its record at 22 New Braunfels was limited to 13 points in the first half and couldnt overcome the deficit despite a sol id fourth quarter surge I felt like we were too inconsistent said NB coach Larry Schulte We have to be solid on defense if we expect to do well because our Sports briefs offense has been Kelly Werth led the Unicorn with 13 points Shanna Webster added 11 points and seven rebounds The Unicorns cut the lead to six points midway through the second quarter but wer unable to stay close The Lady Rebels forced 21 turnovers in the game and led 4126going into the fourth quarter Were just going to put this behind us and get ready for Schulte said BOSTON AP It was a 4point game and David Robinson coining off a 43point perfor mance against Dallas was on his way to another big night So why was San Antonios star on the bench Because the Spurs didnt need him Chuck Person scored 24 points and fellow sub stitute Dennis Rodman had 18 rebounds Tuesday night as the Spurs secondstringers put together a 162 fourthquarter run to beat Boston 10192 The first team established a presence and then Chuck and Dennis came off the bench and did a great said Robinson who scored 18 points in 27 minutes With Rodman Person Terry Cummings and Doc Rivers on his bench San Antonio coach Bob Hill is able to change players more often than Rod man changes hair colors Hill sat Robinson for the fourth quarter allowing him to rest for tonights game against Charlotte But having Rodman at the ready also means that Robinson doesnt need lo do everything himself when he is in the game BEAUMONT Texas AP Burkeville running back Jeff Spikes and lola linebacker Willie Book man are sharing top honors in the 1994
