But after some of their recent games, no news was good news. "Point-wise we're doing a pretty good job. Tonight we did a pretty good job," said Tim Duncan, who had 16 points in the Spurs' 98-84 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. But, he added: "1 still can't say we're where we want to be." Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker had 14 points apiece, Brent Barry added 13 and Bruce Bowen scored 12 - all on 3-pointers-for the Spurs. Although San Antonio won Sunday on the road against Memphis to snap a three-game losing streak, Tuesday marked (lie team's first home game since a 90-85 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Friday. "We shot the ball well tonight and that helped us keep our lead," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Overall, pretty good team defense to hold them to 84. Just go on to the next game tomorrow." Zach Randolph led the Blazers with 25 points, followed by LaMarcus Aldridge with 17, Jarrett Jack with 13 and Brandon Roy wi tli 10. Portland had 19 turnovers for 28 points, while San Antonio committed 15 turnovers for 12 points. Parker was back Tuesday and piayed 21 minutes after sitting out Sunday's game against Memphis with a strained hip. "We had a good win. We played pretty good defense and shot die ball well," Parker said. "Overall, it was a good win." Bowen said every night the Spurs' defense learns a new lesson. "It's important for us to get things the right way. liven if they score, if we're doing it the right way it means we have progress. That's what it's about right now," Bowen said. COLLEGE No.8TexasA&M61, Baylor 51 WACO (AP) -AcieLawIV had 20 points to lead Texas A&M to its seventh straight victory Joseph Jones had six points and three rebounds in the stretch that finally put the Aggies (14-2,2-0 Big 12) ahead for good with 10 minutes left. Texas A&M's second seven-game winning streak of the season has come since consecutive losses to No. 13 LSU and No. 4 UCLA. The Aggies are off to their best start since opening 16-2 in 1959-60. Kevin Rogers had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead Baylor (10-5, 0-2), which has lost 25 straight games against ranked teams since a win at Oklahoma State on Feb. 15, 2003. Mew's 20 points helps Canyon in 61-46 victory By Kevin Washburn Staff Writer During the New Braunfels-Canyon basketball game, some fans brought a sign commemorating the Unicorns' 20-0 Wurst Bowl win from last football season. Unfortunately for those creative sign makers, New Braun-fels could not conjure up the same magic when the teams met on the hardwood. Canyon garnered its ninth consecutive win over New Braunfels with a 61 -46 win at Unicorn Gym on Tuesday. New Braunfels has been win-less in the cross-town rivalry since beating Canyon 53-48 on Feb. 5,2002. "Road wins are extremely important when you're chasing playoff spots, and this is a big road win in this gym," Canyon coach Kenny Rotzler said. "I told die kids before the game it would be a playoff-type atmosphere and that we needed to respond. I think we did a good job regaining our focus, and we're ready to play basketball here down the stretch." That regained focus came after the Cougars recently dropped two of three games, leading to a fall out of the Class 4A basketball rankings. Canyon (18-4 overall; 3-1 in District 26-4A) has responded with a pair of wins -a 69-32 drubbing of Lehman on MIRANDA LAINE/Herald-Zeitung Canyon's Austin New (41) tries to shoot around the upstretched arms of New Braunfels' Brett Finley, right, and Jacob Lain, back, during the Cougars' 61-46 win over the Unicorns on Tuesday at Unicorn Gym. Friday and tJien Tuesday's victory over the Unicorns. Canyon post Austin New has led the way in the pair of victories, scoring a team-high 20 points against New Braunfels after putting in 25 versus the Lobos. When asked about his recent success, New gave credit to his fellow Cougars. "We just run our offense, and (my teammates) set great screens to get me open," New said. "The shooters on our team really help draw away the defense and open it up inside." While the Cougars seemed to have righted the ship, the Unicorns (6-15,1-3) were left looking for answers in another game where they were competitive but could not grab a win. The Unicorns trailed by only six with 5:45 left in the game, but turnovers and New inside allowed Canyon to stretch out its lead late. "We didn't quit, so that's a plus, I guess," New Braunfels coach Chris Dial said. "The kids do play hard all the time. Tonight we didn't execute. We weren't patient. We didn't stick to the game plan. We got away from some of the things that have gotten us some wins in die past." Dial said while the Canyon-New Braunfels rivalry receives a lot of hoopla, he tried to make it no bigger than any other district game. He did concede, however, that the rivalry could have been one cause for his team's lack of execution. "This is a great backyard brawl-type rivalry and all that great stuff that the media likes to eat up, but honestly, Canyon is just another team we play on die schedule," he said. "We needed this district game just as much as we need (to beat) Steele on Friday." Although Canyon never trailed in the game, it was never able to really pull away until late in the fourth quarter. An 8-2 New Braunfels run in the fourth - keyed by a pair of 3-pointers from Will Henry and an old-fashioned See COUGARS, Page 7 A Cougarettes crush Unicorns DAVID INGRAM/Herald-Zeitung New Braunfels' Eliesha Davis is guarded by Canyon's Claire Gubernator as she drives up court in the first half of the Unicorns' 45-31 loss to the Cougarettes on Tuesday. By Will Wright Sports Editor It wasn't great basketball that was featured Tuesday night at die Cougar Den, but then again, anytime New Braunfels and Canyon go at anydiing, it's entertaining. The Cougarettes took their seventh consecutive victory over the Unicorns, as Katie Korioth scored 12 of her game-high 17 points in the first half of a 45-31 win. It kept Canyon witliin earshot of District 26-4A leader Del Valle, while New Braunfels fell yet another game behind the loop's playoff contenders. It was as solid Canyon win to be sure - the Cougarettes led 27-15 at halflime and were up 39-21 going into the fourth quarter. But Canyon coach Terry Tennell was happy he got the win, despite his team's fall off in the latter stages of the contest. "In the fust half 1 thought we played pretty well. I was real disappointed in the way we played in the second half," Tennell said. "(New Braunfels) outplayed us in die second half. They cut into our lead and tiiey owned the fourth quarter." Canyon defeated the Unicorns 58-36 on Dec. 2 at the Cougarette Classic tournament, but was in for a closer contest this dme around. The game wasn't a shooting clinic. New Braunfels hit only two of its First 11 field goals and just seven of its opening 27 shots. Canyon had hit 10 of 26 shots before the break but cooled in the second half, making only eight of its final 28. "We shot 29 percent in the second half," Tennell said. "But it's a win, and , we'll take it. Anytime you can get a' win over a team like New Braunfels,, it's always pretty good." ; The Cougarettes outmuscled the; Unicorns in die first quarter and part � of die second, but New Braunfels got' tougher in the paint as die game went' on. Problem was, the Unicorns could-'. n't get anything to drop. ' New Braunfels hit only six field; goals in the second half and finished' shooting 13 of 48 for die game. "We were outplayed in the first; quarter and got behind and I don't' know what it is - we just have a hard time coming back from a deficit,"! New Braunfels coach Lance Hughey' said. "We played better in the second' half. We got some good looks, but we' need to make some of those shots! when we're right around the basket." Turnovers are usually a problem i Ripken, Gwynn elected to baseball Hall; McGwire way short NFW YORK (AP) - Mark McGwire fell far short in his first try for the Hall of Fame, picked by 23.5 percent of voters while Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. easily gained baseball's highest honor. Tarnished by accusations of steroid use, McGwire appeared on 128 of a record 545 ballots in voting released Tuesday by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Ripken was picked by 537 voters and appeared on 98.53 percent of ballots to finish with the third-highest percentage behind Tom Seaver (98.84) and Nolan Ryan (98.79). The former Baltimore Orioles short-stop said he was both relieved and euphoric. If he had been picked by two of the eight voters who didn't select him, he would have set the percentage record - but he didn't mind. "All I wanted to hear was, 'You're '"v, } > 1 f" > Cal Ripken in,'" Ripken said during a conference call. "I really didn't get caught up with wanting to be unanimous or wanting to be the most." Gwynn received 532 votes for 97.61 percent, the seventh-highest ever, also trailing Ty Cobb, George Brett and Hank Aaron. "It's an unbelievable feeling to know Tony Gwynn that people think that what you did was worthy," Gwynn said. "For me, it's kind of validation. The type of player that I was doesn't get a whole lot of credit in today's game." Goose Gossage finished third with 388 votes, falling 21 shy of the necessary 409. His percentage increased from 64.6 to 71.2, putting him in good position to reach the necessary 75 percent next year. The highest percentage for a player who wasn't elected in a later year was 63.4 by Gil Hodges in See HALL, Page 7A See AREA, Page 7A DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS Saturday Indianapolis (13-4) at Baltimore (13-3), 3:30 p.m. ', (CBS) Philadelphia (11-6) at New. .
