Dunbar ooodt suspondocl
AUSTIN (AP)—Fort Worth Dunbar will play a boy’s basketball playoff game without coach Robert Hughes, who has been suspended for allowing the team to play one more than the 21 regular-sea-son games permitted.
Dunbar was told Thursday by the University Interscholastic League that it also must forfeit the playoff warmup game that got Hughes in trouble. A public reprimand was issued, the team was placed on one-year probation and Hughes was given two years probation.
The UIL executive committee found that Dunbar already had used its allotment of regular-season games (21 individual games plus three tournaments) before playing Fort Worth Polytechnic in a Feb. 18 playoff warmup game.
Dunbar beat Poly 91-65, but the forfeit changes the Wildcats’ record from 31-5 to 30-6 going into a playoff game at 5 p.m. against El Paso Riverside (25-8) in the Region I Class 5A tournament in Midland.
Mavericks shoot Csviliors
DALLAS (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers tied an NBA record with only three turnovers and still couldn't beat the Dallas Mavericks Making Dallas’ 90-84 victory Thursday night even more impressive is the fact it was playing without injured stars Jamal Mashbum and Jim Jackson But the Mavericks had rookie Jason Kidd step up and score 18 points including a three-point play with 2:36 remaining to snap a tie and give Dallas control of a tight game “I love to be in that situation, with the game on the line and the ball,' he said.
