possibility of taking 284A crown By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor HeraldZeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNALt Bradley Clark and the New Braunfels Unicorns hope to stay in front of the District 284A pack with a victory tonight at home against Smithson Valley Game time is 7 Last year at this time the New Braunfels Unicorns faced having to win their final game of the season to stay in a tie for first place They had secured a playoff spot and needed only to knock off thirdplace Uvalde a team with nothing to lose The excitement was high but the Unicorns came up short losing 42 and surrending the 284A crown to Boerne New Braunfels Coach Neal Miller remembers the game well and knows his players have it fresh in their minds We have several seniors back from that team last Miller said They remember how it ended and they know whats at stake Tonights districtending scenario against Smithson Valley 27 812 is eerily similar The main difference is that a win could mean an outright district title for New Braunfels The Hays Rebels who trav el to Lockhart 45 911 for a 7 game would have to lose to help paint a successul picture for Millers troops If Lockhart does us a favor thats Miller said Either way weve got to take care of our responsibility Smithson Val ley has some quality players and they are coming in here to win We have a lot respect for what they can Some extra incentive comes in the fact that tonights game is players Parents Everything appears in place for a dramatic finale In the event of a tie in the district stand ings the Unicorns and Rebels would go head to head in a playoff game to deter mine who keeps the district trophy Miller said the game could be scheduled as ear 284A Baseball SmHhson ftocordfti New Braunfels Smithson Valtey Qamo 7 pm at NBHS Mccm field

NBHS prom night Sat urday Whether the Unicorns win or lose tonight they are guaranteed a spot in the playoffs and either way they will face a stateranked opponent in the first round Both Hays and New Braunfels wrapped up postseason berths with wins last Fri day which means they will take on Dis trict 274A leaders in No 1ranked Boerne or No 10 Kerrville depending on the final standings Miller said both District 284A repre sentatives will have their work cut out Boerne boasts three pitchers with ERAs better than Ace pitcher Chad Pechacek 60 has an ERA includ ing 62 strike outs Alex Lopez and Wade Smith are also ace hurlers Kerrvilles main threats are pitcher Alex Ybarra who has 72 strike outs and David Moreau who is batting 484 with 24 RBI The playoff would most likely be a threegame series The Unicorns arent looking too far ahead though A streaky Ranger team awaits them at home and if last year is any indication the final game cannot be taken lightly Halbert to take golf pro

set an NBA record with 19 3point baskets to beat Utah 140126 in Game 2 of their firstround playoff series and they almost won the first game before falling 102100 in the final two seconds Instead of being calmed by the road games Tomjanovich thinks the Rockets have more pressure on them than ever returning to The Summit for Game 3 on Wednesday night Ive talked about us being in a similar situation maybe three or four times during the Tomjanovich said Were home we ve gone out and done real good work on the road and we come back with a chance to get a good home string going and we havent responded We cant let that happen this The Rockets have had trouble winning at home this season and the Jazz was among the best road teams in the NBA in the reg ular season The Rockets had a dominating 356 home record last season This year they went 2516 The Rockets need no more reminders that the bestoflive series is far from over Somebody has to win two games Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said

AP Saying they refuse to be intimidated out of the playoffs the Denver Nuggets intend to confront San Antonio Spurs forward Dennis Rodman when the teams meet in game No 3 tonight I think Dennis is trying to intimidate us and weve got to respond to Nuggets coach Bemie Bickerstaff said Nothing flagrant but weve got to stand up and be In game two of the series Sunday the Spurs followed Rodmans admonition to play leaving San Antonio with a 20 lead in the bestof5 series Our intensity level is low and I think San Antonio senses Bickerstaff said Theyre being physical with us and theyre pounding us Weve got to stop trying to feel sorry for ourselves I dont see anything in our Rodman who posted 19 points and grabbed a gamehigh 16 rebounds was called for a technical foul after apparently elbow ing Dikembe Mutombo in the stomach Later in the game two of his teammates were ejected after confrontations with the Nuggets On Monday the NBA fined Rodman and three other players were slapped with fines as well Asked if the Nuggets should challenge Rodman Bryant Stith said Maybe its something we need to do at the beginning of the game something legal to show we mean business I think that can change the complexion of the basketball The Spurs who had the NBAs best regularseason record beat Denver 10488 on Friday and 12296 on Sunday Down 20 in the first round of the 1994 playoffs the Nuggets went on to defeat Seattle They lost in the second round to Utah but trailed 30 in that series and ultimately forced a seventh game This time the team is battered and bruised Leading scorer Mahmoud
