Texas A&M Coach Shelby Metcalf was glad to be back home — especially after his team played 12 of its first 13 games on the road.
The Aggies didn’t mind, either. Claude Riley took advantage of the long-awaited homecoming to score 21 points as A&M gave Angelo State a 97-62 thrashing in a non-conference basketball game Thursday night.
The win pushed the Aggies’s season mark to 6-8.
"I don’t think there’s any question that this win tonight helped us, especially our confidence level,” Metcalf said. "When you play 12 of your first 13 games away from home, you almost forget what ifs like to play a home game.”
Riley, who scored 15 of his points in the first half, was one of seven Aggies to score in double figures. Metcalf gave him credit forgetting A&M going.
“One of the keys to the game was when we came out sluggish in the first half, Claude Riley
SAN DIEGO (AP) -Houston Rockets Coach Del Harris says his team is the poorest-shooting club in the National Basketball Association.
That assessment may come as something of a surprise to the San Diego Clippers, considering the Rockets’ Alan Iieavell hit a 20-foot jumpshot with one second remaining Thursday night to give Houston a 109-107 triumph over San Diego.
“We’re happy with the intensity throughout the 48 minutes,” said Harris, whose team ended an eight-game losing streak with the victory.
"We’re playing about like we’ve been playing and our problems are basically that we’re the poorest-shooting team in the league.”
Leaved, who finished the game with 17 points and 13 assists, said he almost passed up taking the winning shot when he saw a momentary opening closer to the basket.
“I was thinking about dribbling down the lane. It was open,” he said. "But I knew I could make the (20-foot) shot.” Teammate Joe Bryant didn’t have any doubts about the winning basket.
“That’s his (Leavell’s) ‘Horse’ shot,” said Bryant. "He makes that all the time
(when they play Horse).”
Major Jones scored a career-high 21 points, all in the second half, and Calvin Murphy added 16 in the final two periods as the Rockets rallied to overcome a 57-49 halftime deficit.
"We got a lift from Murphy and Major Jones off the bench,” Harris said. "We needed someone to pick up the slack.
The Rockets were out-manned for much of the game after their leading scorer and rebounder, Elvin Hayes, left the game with a leg injury late in the first quarter. He did not return. Starting forward Wally Walker was ejected midway
through the third period after throwing a punch at Clippers forward Tom Chambers.
With the win, Houston improved ifs record to 5-27. San Diego is now 7-27.
The Clippers, trying to win two consecutive games for the first time in a year, tied the game at 107-107 with 1:07 left to play on a pair of free throws by Lionel Hollins.
But Clippers Coach Paul Silas said, "Our defensive intensity was not there all night. We played in spurts.
San Diego got 21 points from rookie forward Terry Cummings and Hollins contributed 19 points.
NFL first round playoffs begin Saturday
Dolphins looking for revenge
By BARRY WILNER AP Sports Writer
A blizzard, a snowplow, a 33-yard field goal by John Smith, a 3-0 victory for the New England Patriots.
It all happened on Dec. 12, and the Miami Dolphins aren’t about to forget that defeat at Roxboro, Mass. When the two teams meet Saturday in the first round of the National Football league playoffs, the 7-2 Dolphins don’t expect a repeat of any of those things.
"Miami has thrown down the tomahawk and said, You beat us on a fluke up there in your snow garden; now come down here and play us on our fair field and let’s see what we can get done,’” said Patriots Coach Ron Meyer, who ordered an attendant at the game to use the snowplow to clear a spot from which Smith could kick. "I think that’s a tremendous challenge. I’m looking forward to it.”
So are the Dolphins, who have not won a postseason game since the 1974 Super Bowl. On the other hand, New England, 5-4, hasn’t won in the Orange Bowl in 17 years.
"We’ve been struggling offensively,” said Dolphins Coach Don Shula,
"especially since we got back from the strike. The eight-week layoff really hurt a guy like (quarterback David) Woodley, and we had a tough time getting untracked. Our performance last week against Baltimore was our best since we got back."
The Dolphins beat Baltimore 34-7 last week. Their defense most unpressed Meyer.
“They remind me of those piranha fish that go after live meat when it’s thrown in the water,” said Meyer. "Their defensive football team is as good as you’ll see."
In other games Saturday, the Los Angeles Raiders, 8-1, host 4-5 Cleveland; Washington. 8-1, entertains Detroit. 4-5, and St. Louis, 5-4, is at 5-3-1 Green Bay. On Sunday, Cincinnati, 7-2, hosts the New York Jets, 6-3; San Diego, 6-3, is at Pittsburgh, 6-3; Dallas, 6-3, is at home against Tampa Bay, 5-4, and Minnesota. 5-4. hosts Atlanta, also 5-4.
Many of the Chargers said late in the season that they were confident they could win their final two games to finish 7-2 and make sure they wouldn't be forced to play in a cold-weather city. But, after falling to the Raiders in the season finale. San Diego must now travel to Pittsburgh, where the
temperature isn't likely to be balmy. It also doesn’t figure to be as cold as the minuis-60 degree wind-chill factor the Chargers played in while losing the APX championship game last January at Cincinnati.
"We can’t get into an aerial war with them," warned Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw, knowing full well that the Chargers, behind QB Dan Fouts, running back Chuck Muncie and receivers Kellen Winslow, Wes Chandler and Charlie Joiner, have the best passing attack in football.
The Redskins’ passing game will be hindered by the loss of Art Monk, w ho has a broken foot. Still, the Skins had the best record in the NFC and Detroit hasn’t won in Washington... ever.
"The Lions may not be a great team,” said Richie Pettibon, Wasl ington’s defensive coordinator. "But then, they’re not playing a great team either.
"They are very talented, have a great running back in Billy Suns and their outside receivers can catch ball. They are inconsistent at times and that's what scares me. You never know if this is the week they will come to play."
Nets maintain streak; down Suns, 94-93

Aggies whip Angelo St. at home
really picked us up,” Metcalf said.
Texas A&M fell behind 10-1 at the start of the game and shot only 57.7 percent from the floor during the first half. The Aggies managed a 39-36 halftime lead.
Angelo State was paced by Tommie Tyler’s 19 points. Roland Core and Jeff Burdick each scored 12.
Metcalf started forward Lowell McHenry and guard Doug Lee for the first tune this season, and both responded with double-figure performances.

A little thing like a four-pomt deficit late in the game doesn’t bother a team w ith a six-game winning streak.
"When we were down by four points I in the final 1:19) I looked at the guys on the bench and they believed we’d win,” said New Jersey Nets Coach I^irry Brown.
Although the game and the winning streak, the longest in franchise history, were rn danger, the Nets scored the last five points, three of them on free throws by forward Mickey Johnson, to beat the Phoenix Suns 94-93, their seventh straight triumph.
After the Suns went ahead 93-89, Buck Williams, w ho had 15 points and 17 rebounds for the NeLs, made it 93-91 with a layup. Johnson then hit a free throw with 34 seconds to go and made two more foul shots with just seven seconds on the clock.
"I’m a pressure man,” Johnson said. "There’s always pressure to win. But I’d rather have pressure to win when we’re winning than be losing and have the pressure.”
In other National Basketball Association action, Atlanta edged New York 99-98, I .os Angeles bombed Cleveland 125-107 rn the only game decided by more than two points. Golden State trimmed Portland 94-93 and Houston defeated San Diego 109-107.
Lakers 125, Cavaliers 107

Hawks 99, Knicks 98
Eddie Johnson hit an 18-foot baseline jumper with three seconds remaining to lift Atlanta over New York.
The Knicks had gone ahead seven seconds earlier on a three-pomt basket by Ed Sherod, but Johnson, who led the Hawks with 26 points, dribbled furiously into the corner before launching his game-w inner
Bernard King led all scorers with 37 points for New York.
Warriors 94, Blazers 93
Joe Barry Carroll, who was 4-for-19 from the field two nights earlier w hen Golden State lost to Utah, came back with 29 points against Portland, including a game-winning hook shot with six seconds remaining.
Calvin Natt, who led Portland with 20 points, put the Trail Blazers ahead with a layup with 16 seconds left, drove for another shot after Carroll’s final basket, but his attempt was blocked by the Warriors’ Sam Williams.
