jump all over you The NCAA tournament office pool got under way on Thursday and as fellow workers scanned the brackets it took no time for a critical eye to point out that Id taken Michigan over Texas in the first round Imagine the shame An exHom betting against his alma mater dropping the home team for the sake of a lousy firstround point Despite the chastising I stood firm by my pick Few people understand the true art of NCAA tournament prognostication It all starts on Monday following the NCAA committees seedings The purchase a sectiori iscritieal Every emis and keystatistics ajricf matchup

waiting four CBS cameras to shine on them The Wolverines will fall in the next round to Wake Forest who will fall to UMass two rounds later in the Elite Eight The Minute men will win it all In the end I tossed USA Today and all its data and remembered how two years ago a secretary who hadnt watched a game all season took home the office pool prize She picked Arkansas because they were ranked high and she had relatives there So I figure Why not UMass this year They were the No 1 team for a while and my cousin Rick lives up there Thomas Godley is spans editor for the HeraldZeitung NBHS boys

NBHS Steven Simpson Cooper Cogdell and Michael Williams take in the lesson NBHS tops Lockhart in Softball From staff reports The New Braunfels girls softball team used a sevenrun rally in the fourth inning to surge past the Lockhart Lady Lions on Thursday at NBHS Softball Field The win kept the Unicorns district record per fect at 30 and 118 overall Lockhart the district champion in 1995 dropped to 21 and suffered its first loss in 13 district games after going unde feated last season in 284A NBHS coach Cindy Manley said the Unicorns have yet to play their best softball This was another tough game where we just made the plays at critical Manley said It was kind of amazing that we came out with a win considering we had six The Lady Lions jumped out to a 40 lead when New Braunfels started its comeback Eleven bat ter went to the plate for the Unicorns during that pivotal fourth inning Rachel Green led off with a walk advanced to third base on a past ball and was driven in by Joy Orr Melinda Aguirre Misty Roberts and April Tuch then singled in four more runs to spark the rally Tammy Braune and Emily Wotipka notched the final two RBI Lockhart closed the gap to 76 with two runs in the sixth inning In the top of the seventh the Lady Lions put runners in scoring position with two outs but Braune who pitched the entire game for the Unicorns struck out the final batters to preserve the win Tuch and Braune each went for 2for3 with an RBI to lead the offense The Unicorns next game is at Bastrop on Tuesday New Braunfels track coach Lew Simmonds has always been a firm believer in pacing ear ly and peaking iate Considering the way the Unicom boys team has jumped out of the blocks this season it could be hitting a bigtime stride by the start of district After three meets the Unicorns are moving ahead of schedule and they figure to get better with the addition of several key athletes who are expected to join the team in the next weeks Jamie Copenhauer a top middle distance sprinter will regain his eligibility and give the team a lift in the 400 meter run and 1600 meter relay Kelly Garza plans to return from an injury to bolster the 100 and 400 meter runs He was fourth in district in 1995 And Tony Bradford a 60 high jumper is recovering from a foot injury and could help in the field events Were coming along fine right now and Im pleased but I think weve got another 30 40 points out Simmonds said It looks good the way things are The Unicorns head to their fourth meet this FricKiv at Kerville Tivy The spring break sched ule will mean a scarcity of teams and runners but the meet will give an opportunity to junior varsity runners who expect to be moved up Last week at the Round Rock McNeil meet the Unicorns took fourth place On March 2 they came in third

of stepping into big shoes Hell lake over the unsettled thirdbase spot for the Houston Astros this season one year after Ken Caminiti one of the most popular Astros ever departed for San Diego I followed George Brett at Kansas City I followed Tim Wallach in Montreal so in that sense Caminili is in pretty good company in the people Ive Berry said I had the good fortune to play with Brett and Wallach and although I never got to play with Camy that would have been Berry said Sure youd like to live up to those guys but youre kidding yourself You just try to play your game and someday maybe theyll say I was a pretty good third base Dave Magadan and Craig Shipley platooned at third base in Caminitis absence last season but fans clearly missed Caminitis dartlike moves and laser throws to first base Solidifying third base was an early goal of new Astros general manager Gerry Hunsicker Sean fits well with this Hunsicker said We werent looking for a highprofile type guy This is a club of bluecollar workers who go out and grind it out every day Even the stars Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell are everyday grinders Berry fits that mold Sean is like a chameleon Many times you dont even notice that hes there until you look up at the end of the year and realize how much hes done for the Hunsicker said Rockets soar past Hawks 114106 By The Associated Press HOUSTON AP Lenny Wilkens is

and fueled a thirdquarter charge that led the Houston Rockets to a 114106 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Thursday night We were going to try and double team defen sively and help as quick as possible with rotations on Wilkens said I dont think we got there quick enough and hes too good to give him that much Olajuwons knee started bothering him in practice on Tuesday but he elected to play against the Hawks and Rockets coach Rudy Tom janovich is glad that he did The Rockets remain two games behind the divisionleading San Antonio Spurs
