Editor HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL New Braunfels forward Wenzel comes down with a rebound during third quarter action of the Unicorns 4036 win over the Canyon Cougars on Friday The Unicorns are one game away from clinching a playoff spot With every shot that sailed toward the rim in the final minutes of this nail biting battle New Braunfels coach Cliff Wilkins sidestepped dipped and pumped his arms displaying all the body motions that coaches use to help guide the ball through the hoop He saved his best move a left footed shuffle and head tilt for a shot by guard Ray Chapa at the mark of the fourth period and the gravitational forces seemed the work Chapas 3pointer in the face of two lunging Canyon Cougars gave the Uni corns a 3735 lead which they held and emerged with a 4036 victory on Friday night at Cougar Den The outcome sets up a seasonending showdown with Smithson Valley on Tuesday at Unicorn Gym The winner of that game captures the runnerup playoff spot in District 284A The Bastrop Bears survivors of a 9285 Shootout with Smithson Valley on Friday at Ranger Gym clinched the district championship The New BraunfelsCanyon rivalry more than lived up its billing as fans witnessed a tight battle that rarely held more than a threepoint margin in the second half Lastminute opportunities abounded at the free throw line but both teams struggled to take advantage of the foul situation The Cougars were 18 of 32 while the Unicorns made just four of 12 shots from the stripe Moments after Chapa hit the goahead bucket he was called for a blocking foul on Canyon guard Ricky Boehle who went to the line and made one of two free throws to cut the lead to 3736 with left Offensive rebounds then bailed out the Unicorns Guard Wilkins who was fouled with 37 seconds remaining missed the front end of a 1forl but for ward Ian Owens who scored 10 points grabbed thb offensive rebound and drew a foul He converted one of two free throws to give the Unicorns a 3836 edge

LANE AP Basketball Writer SAN ANTONIO AP As the NBA is throwing its annual AllStar party and celebrating its success even the hint that one of its teams might follow the lead of the NFLs Rams and NHLs Nordiques causes jitters especially when the team in question is the one hosting the AllStar Game So NBA commissioner David Stern found himself on the spot Friday during his yearly questionandanswer session about the state of the NBA facing ques tions about the Spurs dissatisfaction with the Alamodome and plans to leave the city However Stem sounded confident that the rash of franchise

the Alam odome isnt ideal over the long term but believes a solution can be reached Were optimistic that will take care of Stern said Stern pointed out that two previous court cases affirmed the leagues right to veto any proposed franchise relocation We have asserted the proposition that a franchise needs the permission of the board of governors to he said That power reasonably exercised is not a violation of antitrust In 1984 the NBA sued the San Diego Clippers after the club tried to move to Los Angeles A settlement was reached and the team eventually moved but the league exacted a
