Unicom shooter missing the front end of the one-and-one.
John Drury got the offensive rebound and passed to Sierra. The sophomore was fouled with five seconds left, hitting two free throws to give New Braunfels the 65-62 lead. Travis was unable to get off a final shot.
“It was exciting there at the end,” Wilkins said. “That was a tremendous offensive rebound (by Drury), and Mike hit an extremely big three and the two big free throws.”
Isabel I Bustos was also a hero for New Braunfels, hitting seven of eight fourth-quarter free throws. Bustos also had a field goal in the fourth, with nine of his team-high 13 points coming in the final quarter.
Sierra added 12 points, including five in the last 20 seconds. Drury scored IO points, and Reagan Overall had all eight of his points in the second half — including two three-pointers, one an important fourth-quarter shot.
Brad Lybrand had a big third quarter and scored seven points for the game, while Andy Caldwell also scored seven. All IO of the Unicom players scored.
“The main thing is that everybody contributed,” Wilkins said. “Mike

had a real fine ball game and really showed his leadership there at the end. I was pleased that Bell canned seven of eight in the fourth quarter from the free-throw line. But it was really a situation where everybody contributed.”
He said Travis was a very physical team, holding New Braunfels to a 32-31 halftime lead that Wilkins said should have been bigger.
“We made a few turnovers in the first half, but I thought we really exe* outed well in the second half,” he said.
The top Rebel players also got into foul trouble, with forward Antonian Edwards — who scored 27 points — and post Greg Hill picking up a lot of fouls.
The aggressive style of play took New Braunfels out of its game early# but Wilkins said the Unicorns responded in the second half.
“In the second half, we played with a lot more aggression (in that) we were a lot stronger with the ball,” he said. “We did a much better job of protecting the ball.”
The Unicorns, who improved to 1-2, host Tivy on Tuesday at 8 p.m. .

Gymnasts ranked nationally
Aggies rout Texas for perfect SWC finish
Two New Braunfels boys were recently ranked among the top 70 gymnasts in the country among their age group, in recently-announced national. ankings by the United States Gymnastics Federation.
Daniel Fumey placed sixth in the nation in the 10-11 age group, while Patrick Quilter placed 61 st.
The boys testing program by the USGF assessed performance capabilities, physical potential and the technical execution of certain gymnastic skills. The Junior National Coaching Staff is looking for boys who have superior strength and flexibility, and who perform skills in the most technically correct way possible.
Fumey scored a 60.61 on the rating scale, while Quilter had a 44.47.
The two New Braunfels gymnasts first competed state wide to qualify for a regional meet with other states. Scores and evaluations were then compared with the country’s nine different regions.
By placing sixth nationally, Fumey was placed on the 10-11 age group development team and will be sent to a development camp this summer at
Patrick Quilter (front) and Daniel Fumey, two local gymnasts, received national rankings from the United States Gymnastics Federation after a recent testing program. Furney earned the sixth best ranking in the 10-11 age group, and Quilter was 61st nationally in the same group.
the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. His personal coach will also attend, and Fumey will train there for one week with the national team’s coaches.
Fumey and Quilter arc both coached by Yuejin Sun with Harris Unlimited Gymnastic School in San Antonio. Sun has a college degree in gymnastics from China.
Both New Braunfels gymnasts are fifth-graders at Frazier Elementary School, and both spend more than 18 hours a week practicing gymnastics at the San Antonio gym.
COLLEGE STATION (AP) — Texas A&M’s offense had trouble scoring against the Texas defense, so linebacker Marcus Buckley and punt returner Kevin Smith decided to help out.
Buckley intercepted Texas’ first pass of the game and returned it 19 yards for a touchdown and Smith broke open a rugged defensive duel in the third quarter with a 73-yard punt return, leading the No. IO Aggies to a 31-14 victory Thursday night.
The Aggies, who clinched their 16th SWC title last week in a 65-6 victory over Southern Methodist, accepted the Cotton Bowl’s week-old invitation to play No. 3 Florida State in the Cotton Bowl Jan. I. The Aggies improved to 10-1, 8-0 in the Southwest Conference.
‘ ‘We accept it, the race is officially over,” Texas A&M Coach R.C. Slocum said. “We felt if we could hang in there, the defense would win us the
“I was prepared to go into the fourth quarter and win with defense.”
But Smith’s return and a pair of second-half touchdown runs by Greg Hill helped the Aggies to finally wear down the stout Texas defense, ranked fourth in the nation.
“I thought Greg Hill ran hard all night,” Slocum said. “He took some shots but kept getting back up for more.”
Texas A&M’s defense, ranked first in the nation, held Texas (5-6, 4-4) in check in the first half and eased to a 10-7 halftime lead. The Aggies extended it to 17-7 on the first drive of the third period on Hill’s 2-yard run.
On his big return, Smith fielded the punt, made a move to his right and darted 73 yards for the touchdown. He also had a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown against Rice earlier this season.
“I’ll never forget this,” Aggies
linebacker Jason Atkinson said. “It’s together this year. We started cele-
a family feeling the way we pulled brating after Kevin’s punt return.”
