New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 27, 2001, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B— Herald-ZeitUNG — Thursday, September 27, 2001 Sports Shorts- ►TOU football FORT WORTH (AP) — TOU forward Bingo Merriex, the top returning scorer and rebounder for the Homed Frogs, broke his right foot in a pickup game and will be out of action up to eight weeks. Merriex is scheduled to have surgery Friday. Coach Billy Tubbs said the junior sustained the injury in a pickup game Monday. Last season, Merriex averaged 11.5 points and 4.8 rebounds a game for the Frogs. TCU begins preseason drills Oct. 16 and plays its season opener Nov. 13 against Northwestern State. ►Philadelphia 76ers PHILADELPHIA (AP) —Allen Iverson and Aaron McKie both had surgery and will not be able to play for the Philadelphia 76ers for at least a month. Iverson, the NBA’s MVP who led the 76ers to the Finals this past season, is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after an arthroscopic operation on his right elbow. He probably will be ready for the season opener Oct. 30. McKie, the league’s top sixth man, had a similar procedure on his right shoulder and will be out 6-to-8 weeks. He could start the season on the injured list. ►Chicago BJs NEW YORK (AP) — Luc Longley, a IO-year veteran who won three NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls, announced his retirement. The 32-year-old center, who played in 25 games for New York last season, has an arthritic condition in his left ankle that forced his retirement. The 7-foot-2 Longley was a member of Australia’s Olympic team. He also played for Minnesota and Phoenix, averaging 7.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game for his career. ►Hew England QB BOSTON (AP) — Drew Bledsoe’s doctors determined his organs were not damaged on a tackle that caused internal bleeding in his chest, New England coach Bill Belichick said. The Patriots quarterback still was expected to miss at least two games, but he could have been released from the hospital as soon as Wednesday. ►Texas Rangers ARLINGTON (AP) — Texas pitcher Justin Thompson underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to remove scar tissue from his left shoulder. Dr. John Conway, the team’s medical director, performed the surgery in Fort Worth. Conway said the surgery went well, and that the pitcher’s rotator cuff and biceps tendon looked fine. Thompson hasn’t pitched for the Rangers since being acquired in the November 1999 trade that sent two-time AL MVP Juan Gonzalez to Detroit. The Rangers said Thompson would be able to begin rehabilitation immediately and should resume throwing in about eight weeks. ► Notre Dame footbal SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Sitting on the bench this past season as fellow freshman Matt LoVecchio led Notre Dame to seven straight victories, Carlyle Holiday wondered whether he would ever get a chance to start at quarterback. Now the Irish, in danger of going 0-3 for the first time in school history, are looking to Holiday, who came out of Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, to rescue an anemic offense for a team on the brink.

Huppke Associated Press Writer STARLIGHT, Ind. — On most nights, you won’t find many people in this rural southern Indiana town who give a hoot about Lubbock, Texas. You’d probably find even fewer who could name a player on the Texas Tech basketball team. But bring in one Robert Montgomery Knight and all that changes — quickly. About 600 people paid $40 a ticket to see Knight speak at a Texas Tech fund-raiser Wednesday night, evidence the coach’s popularity in Indiana hasn’t changed, even if his place of employment has. Fired a little more than a year ago from Indiana University, the Hall of Famer has made believers out of Texas Scoreboard KNIGHT Tech officials, who wouldn’t have pegged Indiana as a prime fundraising spot. “This would be a pretty hard thing to do in most cases,” said Bill Dean, head of Texas Tech’s alumni association. “Th leave a state and go to a school in another part of the country, then come back to that location and raise money for the new school.” Dean chuckled for a moment: “That just doesn’t happen.” It does when it comes to Bob Knight and the state of Indiana. The red-sweatered, and often red-faced, Knight stomped the hardwood court at ITJs Assembly Hall for nearly 30 years, bringing the Hoosiers three NCAA championships. He was respected by leagues of people, from high-powered alumnus to local folks who just rooted for IU. But his well-documented temper also earned him a fair number of detractors. In the end, he was fired for what the university called a pattern of unacceptable behavior. That successfully took Knight out of the university, but not out of the hearts of his faithful fans. “I think that for years and years a lot of us fans felt like we had something that no other school in the country had,” said Al Leistner, an IU alumni and co-organizer of Wednesday night’s dinner. “Now we don’t have that any more. What they’ve got up there now is a program that’s just like anybody elses.” About IO years ago, in an effort to build alumni support in southern Indiana, Leistner I started the Tip-Off Dinner with Knight at a farm about 80 miles south of Bloomington. After Knight was hired by Texas Tech, Leistner wrote to see if he might still come back. : Knight wrote back and asked if there would still be interest. “Everybody I called said ’Absolutely, I’d love to hear what he has to say,”’ Leistner said. “And he said ’Let’s do it, we’ll raise some money for Texas Tech.’” Leistner expected the dinner • to raise at least $30,000 for the university more than a thousand miles away. Knight fans already have had a positive financial impact on Texas Tech’s athletic program in other areas. Stores across Indiana now stock Red Raiders apparel. ►NFL National Football League At A Glance By The Associated Press All Times CDT AMERICAN CONFERENCE East W    L    T    Pct    PF    PA Indianapolis    2    0    0    1 .OOO    87    50 Miami    2    0    0    1.000    49    38 N.Y.
