THE SALINA JOURNAL SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 29, 1998 08 V MEN'S FINAL FOUR The Associated Press Stanford's Mark Madsen lies on the court after fouling out In overtime against Kentucky on Saturday. No miracle this time for Stanford By DENNIS GEORGATOS The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO — It happened before for Stanford. Arthur Lee believed he could make it happen again. Kentucky got in the way. Lee went up for a 3-point try at the end of a wild sequence, looking to keep Stanford's championship hopes alive. v Kentucky's Ja" maal Magloire didn't let him get it off, slapping the ball down with a block. Then, he nearly pulled 'off a last-ditch steal, but could- '••li't quite come up with it. ;.;• This time, the steal, the last shot and the stirring comeback eluded Lee and Stanford, beaten 86-85 in overtime by Ken- itucky on Saturday in its first Final Four appearance in 56 years. < "I thought we were going to come back and win. It felt like ; it was happening all over .again," Lee said. "It was so ;close. We just ran out of time." "It was a great run. It's terri- *le that it had to end," added Stanford's Kris Weems. ; ;>; Lee played with the same ' Serve and flair he showed "When he led Stanford's astonishing rally past Rhode Island. He came up with a key steal 'and scored 13 of his 26 points ,ln the final 2:04 as Stanford Overcame a six-point deficit to ;get past Rhode Island. Stanford players thought about that rally and Lee's determination down the stretch in trying to keep their tournament run going. "He's such a confident player. We definitely feed off him," center Tim Young said. "He's not afraid to step up and shoot a 3-pointer with a guy in his face. I think that gives us hope that, hey, we can do that, too." Again, Lee scored 26 points and forced the game into overtime when, with Kentucky's Wayne Turner in his face, he hit a 3-pointer with 26.8 seconds remaining in regulation. That tied it at 73, after Stanford trailed by four with 1:10 left. He calmly made three free throws in the extra period to keep Stanford in striking distance, 79-78. Ryan Mendez hit a 3-pointer to pull the Cardinal to 83-82 before Turner made a pair of free throws to boost Kentucky's lead to 85-82. Three times on their next possession, Stanford put up 3- point attempts. Mendez and Weems missed before the ball came back out to Lee, who went up and was smothered by Magloire with just under 16 seconds remaining. After Jeff Sheppard made one of two free throws, Peter Sauer connected on a 3-pointer with nine seconds left. On the inbounds pass, Kris Weems nearly stole the ball from Scott Padgett;-swiping at it, but failing to knock it out cleanly. Padgett was tied up and on the alternate possession, the ball went to Kentucky. Turner was fouled on the inbounds by Lee, who just missed swiping it away. "I thought I had, but somehow he held on," Lee said. Revenge-minded Utes get another shot at UK By The Assoqlated Press 'By JIM LITKE 'Tlie Associated Press : SAN ANTONIO — After this .year, office pools will never be .the same. An NCAA Tournament already packed with surprises sprung one of its biggest Satur•day night, when Utah upset North Carolina to earn yet another shot at Kentucky in the ;NCAA tournament. "It's great to have another chance at them," Utah center .Michael Doleac said. "Obviously, we struggled with them the last few years. But it's a new year and we're playing great ball." - The Utes played tough defense 'and kept their poise down the '.stretch to knock off the top- .ranked Tar Heels 65-59. Doleac and Andre Miller each scored 16 points, and Miller, a 6-foot-2 guard, also contributed 14 re- ftounds, In the bargain, Utah end;ed the first-year journey of North -'Carolina coach Bill Guthridge, •who took over the program after :three decades as an assistant to Dean Smith. I Kentucky outlasted Stanford ;86-85 in the night's first game, be- 'hind a career-high 27 from Jeff ISheppard. The teams have played seven times over the years, with the Wildcats winning five. Kentucky knocked Utah out of the NCAA Tournament the previous two years — in the West Regional championship last year and in a Midwest semifinal in 1996. In 1993, the Wildcats beat the Utes in the second round. Utah's last win in the series came in the championship game of the 1976 University of Kentucky Invitational Tournament. "I know a little bit about them from last year," Utah coach Rick Majerus said. "I don't know them much," So how soon will he start familiarizing himself with them? "I'm going to go out and get a bite, then come back tonight and watch some film," he said. Kentucky, which has won six NCAA championships, is one of the most pedigreed programs in the college game, along with North Carolina and UCLA. The Wildcats have reached the championship game three years in a row, having won the title in 1996 and finished runner-up to Arizona last year. The Utes beat Dartmouth to win the NCAA Tournament in 1944, when they filled in for an Arkansas team devastated by a car crash.

Later in the day, Cloud County shut out the Lions 5-0. The two teams' scheduled doubleheader Friday was rained out. Against Garden City, the Lions' original opponent today, Brown Mackie took a 5-3 lead into the seventh inning only to have the Bron- cbusters score twice and send the game into extra innings. With the international tiebreaker in place (starting an inning with a runner on second base), Garden City left its baserunner stranded at third. Brown Mackie proceeded to answer in its half of the eighth. After Sharon Fuimaono beat out a well- executed bunt that moved Liz Reyes to third, McDonald delivered the game-winner, smacking a first-pitch single into right field. Beside her offensive production (2 for 4, 2 RBI), McDonald improved her pitching record to 3-3 with an eight-strikeout, four-walk performance. Jodi Dale also had a pair of hits for the Lions. Brown Mackie collected just five hits in its loss to Cloud County. Only in the seventh did the Lions string together multiple hits — back-to-back singles by Alicia Young and Fuimaono — but couldn't crack the scoring column. "We showed some promise today," said Brown Mackie coach Francis Flax, whose team stands 5-6 on the season. "I haven't been with these girls very much (coaching the Lions to a fourth-place finish in the NJCAA II national men's basketball tournament that concluded last week) and we haven't taken much hitting practice, but I saw some things that encouraged me today." The three teams will play again today at Bill Burke Park (field No. 7): Cloud County vs. Garden City at 11 a.m.; Garden City vs. Brown Mackie at 1 p.m.; and Cloud County vs. Brown Mackie at 3 p.m. Each! sauna • cone. • Belleville CRIPPLE CREEK $110 April 22*24 • (filling 2nd bus) M • full meals (2 Cont Breakfasts ) 'MUCH MORE!

The Broncbusters belted 12 home runs en route to 19-4 and 14-4 victories. Much of Garden City's power surge occurred in the opener. "Garden City took advantage of the wind blowing out to left field," Brown Mackie coach Steve Bartow said. "We made some good pitches, but when they get 14 hits and 10 leave the park, there's not much you can do." In game two, Garden City took command with a seven-run sixth inning that extended its lead to 141. "They got some hits and we did not make some plays," said Bartow, whose team committed four errors in the nightcap. "We can not give any team we play any extra outs." Brown Mackie didn't go quietly. The Lions scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth and threatened to add more, but left the bases loaded after lining out to third KU splits with OU By The Associated Press LAWRENCE — Andy Juday went 3-for-5 with six RBIs to lead Kansas to a 20-11 victory over nationally ranked Oklahoma in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. Ninth-ranked Oklahoma breezed in the opener, 13-4. base. "We did not pitch bad," Bartow said. "It was just one of those days. They took advantage of the conditions and we didn't." Now 3-9 on the season, Brown Mackie plays at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Hutchinson. NEWTON-JOHN .C/GREAT FILM!"
