Lowly Lehigh makes NCAA tourney field
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Lehigh University may not have the best record in college basketball this season. But at least the Engineers are going to the NCAA tournament.
“Championship games are funny and teams show emotion in different ways," Lehigh Coach Tom Schneider said Monday night after his team rallied to beat Bucknell 76-74 in overtime to win the East Coast Conference tournament title.
The victory gave the Engineers, at 12-18, an automatic bid to this year’s 64-team NCAA playoffs. Lehigh’s record, however, is not the worst ever in the tournament — George Washington, for example, was 9-16 when it won its way there during the 1960-61 season.
“We didn't lose face and kept our championship dream alive,” Schneider said. “This is a great moment for our basketball
Tiny guard leads SOC to 5A title
AUSTIN (AP) - At 4-foot-ll, sophomore guard Chandra Dismuke isn’t the most overshadowing player on the Dallas South Oak Cliff girls’ basketball team.
But she was the key to the speedy SOC offense, often breaking through two or three defenders with an ankle-high dribble and passing off to a teammate for a basket.
She had only 12 points and two rebounds in two games, but her ball-handling performance was spectacular enough to put her on the all-state tournament team in Class SA. SOC defeated Lubbock Monterey 68-47 in the semifinals and Victoria 60-46 in the finals.
SOC senior forwards Rhonda Buggs and Sandra Hayes Joined Dismuke on the all-star squad, which also included juniors Karen Gaskin of Victoria, a unanimous selection and high scorer in SA with 34 points, and Tongela Foster of Houston Yates.
Here are the all-tournament teams announced Monday, by division, as selected by sportswriters and broadcasters covering the three-day tournament:
Chandra Dismuke, Rhonda Buggs and Sandra Hayes, Dallas South Oak Cliff; Tongela Foster, Houston Yates; Karen Gaskin, Victoria.
Maggie Davis, Martha Estelle and Dorothy Walters, Waco Richfield; Cheryl Watson, Sweetwater; Teresa Wyatt, Livingston.
Bernice Dorsey and Connie Mack, Sweeny; Tanzy Waggoner and Stacie Scott, Vernon; Julie Few, Midlothian.
Jeanme Condo, Dana Hargrove and Melissa Lucky. Troy; Johnnia Harrell, Abernathy; Phoebe Dunn. Abernathy.
Leona Gerber, Ramona Heiman and Kelly Schilling, Nazareth; Nadine Heman, Priddy; Connie Cole, Snook.
It was a big night for Iona, which beat Fordham 57-54 to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament title, and Fairleigh Dickinson, which defeated Loyola, Md., 63-59 in overtime for the Eastern College Athletic Conference Metro tournament crown. Each victory carried bids to the NCAA playoffs. Lehigh will be making its first-ever appearance in the NCAA tournament after winning its first-ever ECC title. The Engineers trailed 26-13 midway through the first half before taking their first lead of the game at 67-65 with 35 seconds left to play. Bucknell’s Chris Seneca then forced the game into overtime with a 25-foot jump shot as time expired • In the extra period, Mike Polaha made two foul shots with 1:20 left to put Lehigh ahead, and after Bucknell again tied it, Polaha sank a 14-foot shot with eight seconds remaining for the game-winner.
