He went on to post a season-high 18 points, a team-record 12 blocks and nine rebounds as the Washington Bullets edged the Bucks 110-108 in overtime. “That was the most dominating performance by one player I’ve seen this year,” Milwaukee Coach Don Nelson said of Bol, whose previous high for points was six. Even without Bol, the game was exciting for the small crowd of 4,643 at Capital Centre.

On Saturday, the Bison will be playing for the NCAA Division II title for the fourth time in five years after an almost impossible series of events catapulted them into the Palm Bowl. Standing between them and the championship, however, will be North Alabama, which boasts the nation’s second rated defense Bison Coach Earle Solomonson said the team was rank ed 18th at the end of the regular season and the only way it could be invited to the playoffs was if eight teams lost and another tied “When I woke up that Sunday morning and saw all eight teams had lost and one tied I said it was going to be a good Sunday,” Solomonson told a news conference Thursday Yankees, Sox make deal SAN DIEGO (AP) — The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox. locked in a game of “Let’s Make A Deal” for several weeks, finally landed lesser prizes on the final day of baseball’s winter meetings But the Thursday swap that sent pitcher Britt Burns and two minor-leaguers to the Yankees for pitcher Joe Cowley and catcher Ron Hassey was not the big deal both teams hoped to make. That other deal would send Chicago catcher Carlton Fisk to New York for designated hitter Don Baylor. But Chicago is still trying to sign free agent Fisk, who wants a three-year contract, and the Yankees are still trying to get Baylor to drop his no-trade clause, which he might do for enough money. Baylor reportedly also wants a $1 million a year. Cauthen fighting with alcohol CINCINNATI (AP) — Family and friends of jockey Steve Cauthen, the youngest rider ever to win racing's Triple Crown, doubt he has a serious drinking problem even though he is in a hospital here trying to get over an alcohol dependency. The jockey’s father, George “Tex" Cauthen, said the younger Cauthen quit drinking about three months ago “Steve felt he had an alcohol problem," the senior Cauthen said “He felt it was something he needed to work on And there was no better time than now, when he had the time off ” The elder Cauthen said the family was unaware of Steve Cauthen’s intent to enter the program until he returned last month to his hometown of Walton, Ky ., near Cincinnati, from England, where the jockey had moved to resume his racing career. Cauthen, 25, has two days to go in the treatment program at Cincinnati’s Christ Hospital, the Cincinnati Post reported Thursday. Cauthen signed himself into the program and scheduled his stay during his annual holiday visit home, the jockey’s father said Scoreboard On the air FRIDAY TELEVISION 6 30 pm    Basketball Loyola at Bradley ESPN 7 pm. — Basketball Atlanta at Indiana WTBS SATURDAY TELEVISION 11 30 a rn    Football Chicago at New York Jct*.

We missed a lot of easy shots inside, though,” he said. Smithson Valley plays Blanco at 5 p.m. today and will face Liberty Hill at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Today’s game will be a real test for the Rangers, Kraft said. Smithson Valley opened the season with a 58-57 victory over Blanco, which was playing with one starter on the bench with an injury.

But it was the Rangerettes who finished with a flurry, downing the Bulldogs 58-47. The key to winning the game, Smithson Valley Coach Keith Sullivan said, was the Rangerettes’ mental attitude during the game. “Things got out of control a couple of times after we had a big lead, but we regained our composure early. We could have collapsed but we didn’t," he said. The Rangerettes jumped out to a 10-point lead in the first quarter, but Burnet fought back, cutting the Smithson Valley lead to 24-22 at halftime. After another exchange of team surges in the third quarter, the Rangerettes pulled away in the final half of the fourth quarter to seal the team’s fifth win in nine games. Smithson Valley meets host Marble Falls in the second round of the tournament at 6:30 p.m. today. The Rangerettes will meet Liberty Hill at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the third round of the round-robin tournament. Smithton Va Hay 58.

Cougarette Coach Joy Scharf said she was proud of her team’s performance in a 56-52 loss to the Wildcats. “We played super in the first game and never gave up. It’s tough to lose a game like that but Elgin is a good team," she said. Cheryl Butler paced Canyon with 12 points while Sherry Wood added nine. Free throws killed the Cougarettes in the fourth quarter, as Canyon missed a possible IO points in the final four minutes on free throws. A tired Cougarette team took the court against Lockhart, pulling out a victory when the Lady Lions were forced to play the final three minutes with four players after numerous foulouts. “It’s not the best way to win a game, but Elgin just drained us and we were not ready to play again so soon,’’ Scharf said.
