C 6'" THE COURIER-JOURNAL, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1990 Huffman helps 1 Metcalfe oust Evangel 83-73 By BRIEN SHEA Special Writer LEXINGTON, Ky. Evangel started well yesterday, but it didn't take long for Chris Huffman to take charge and lead Metcalfe County to an 83-73 victory In a first-round game of the All 'A' Classic at Memorial Coliseum. In another afternoon game, Sergio Luyk had 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists to lead University Heights to an 82-64 romp past Pikeville. Evangel jumped to 6-2 lead, but Huffman and the Hornets stormed back to score 15 of the game's next 19 points to lead 17-10. Huffman continued his domination as he scored 32 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. "They scored a lot of their points on second and third efforts," Evangel coach Laura Caddy said. "Our shooting was below normal, too. Those two factors cost us the game." Evangel, shooting about 52 percent for the season, hit just 31 of 71 shots for 43.7 percent After falling behind, the Eagles began rushing shots and made costly turnovers. Metcalfe's Inside prowess surprised coach Tim McMurtrey, who noted that Evangel starts no one smaller than 6-3. "We're not a very big club, and they gave us all kinds of matchup problems," he said. "But the kids played hard. They (Evangel) had some chances to get back in it, but we hung tough." Down 67-58 with six minutes remaining. Evangel scrapped back behind Glen Wathen, who finished with 31 points and 12 rebounds. After a basket by Evangel's Marvin Smith, a Wathen trey cut the lead to 67-63. Four consecutive points by Metcalfe extended the lead, but another Wathen bomb cut it to 71-66 with 3:56 left Then the Hornets' Shawn Jones, who scored 24 points, hit two free throws before Evangel scored four straight to trim the lead to three with 2:38 left. However, Metcalfe scored the next five points for a 78-70 lead with a minute to go to seal the win.

Courier-Journal Litkenhous Ratings and the top team in the tourney. But If Pikeville is the tourney's second-best team, according to the Litratings, then they might as well hand the trophy to the Blazers. "We just don't see teams of this caliber with that kind of size," Pikeville coach Ken Trivette said. "We got intimidated and got behind." With the score tied 12-12, the Blazers, who shot 65.4 percent from the field (34 of 52), scored eight of the next 10 points on an assist and two three-pointers by Luyk to take control. Then as the second quarter began, Mike Defoe, who scored 22 points, made two slams sandwiched around Luyk's 15-footer to push the lead to 26-16. The Panthers did hang tough, and the score was only 54-45 after three quarters, but University Heights outscored Pikeville 17-4 to start the fourth quarter to seize a 71-49 lead. By BRIEN SHEA Special Writer LEXINGTON, Ky. Kentucky Country Day came out scared, and that was all it took for Harrodsburg to grab an 84-62 victory in last night's All "A" Classic game. The Pioneers (15-7) jumped out to leads of 8-1 and 20-3 to bury the Bearcats (14-4) early In the night's final first-round game. "We played scared to death," KCD coach Mark Peeler said. "It was panic. We didn't take care of the ball or take good shots." Harrodsburg, the 12th Region champion, played its up-tempo game to perfection, beating the slower Bearcats down the floor. "We like to push the ball up and down," Harrodsburg coach Greg Edwards said. "We told the kids it was Important that we come out ready and play with the same intensity that we did in the regional." After taking a 44-20 halftime lead, the Pioneers scored the first basket of the second half to grab their biggest lead. But KCD, the Seventh Region champion, rallied behind 6-foot-3 center Jason Hagan and out-scored Harrodsburg 19-6 to slice the First day is ' A'-OK to founder All 'A' Classic linescores Continued from Page C 1 "The corporate people say, 'Get it under way, then come back and see us.'" Steidel's group has a proposed budget of 92,000, of which $73,000 will be used to pay expenses of the 16 competing schools. "The rest will go to paying the referees and operating the tournament," he said. "There are no salaries. We all are volunteers." Regardless of whether this tourney for the state's smallest schools (enrollment of 424 or fewer in the upper three grades) proves to be a hit, Steidel said his group is committed to staging it again next season. "We're prepared to get a track record," he said. "We'll be back as long as Lexington and the university will have us. "We're going to incorporate girls into the tournament next year if this tournament is financially successful enough for us to operate a girls' tournament First we had to see if we could do this." The Class A event is a product of 11 years of work by Steidel. "We started an All "A" Classic in Northern Kentucky 10 years ago," he said. "We started with nine teams. It grew to 16 teams and then to 18. We had so many people wanting to come up there and play that we decided to expand. We had 121 teams (of 145 eligible) this year." The Kentucky High School Athletic Association is not sanctioning this tournament Several years ago KHSAA member schools voted against classes, but Steidel is happy with what he has. "This is what we tried to get with classification," he said. "If we can get it without upsetting the apple cart, then that is good. I don't think we're a threat to the Sweet Sixteen" the profitable State Tournament for all schools, which the KHSAA runs in March. Most of the opening-session spectators came from Metcalfe County and Pikeville. Not many neutral fans were in the chair-back seats across the floor. Metcalfe County coach Tim McMurtrey said his school brought 700 to 800 fans. "We'll have a lot more Friday because a lot of people couldn't get off work today," he said.

Asked for his thoughts about the Class A tourney, Dorsey said: "I want to take a look at It first I don't want to pass judgment right away. The good outweighs the bad. It will give kids from smaller schools a chance to be seen by college coaches. I like that part of it but I hope it doesn't take the place of the Sweet Sixteen." Dorsey took Caverna to the 1953 State Tournament semifinals in this same gym, although Caverna had only 190 students. Caverna lost to a much bigger school, Paducah Tilgh-man. "I thought we had a shot at winning it all that year," he said. One of Dorsey's players then was Wendell Cherry, now president of Humana Inc. in Louisville. U of L changes channels, signs with WDRB-41 Continued from Page C 1 In addition to football and basketball, WDRB agreed to televise six other varsity sports events, probably volleyball, women's basketball or baseball. It also will have live coverage of pep rallies, preseason luncheons and postseason awards banquets and will extend air time to UofL merchandising promotions. "It's a model contract," said athletics director Bill Olsen. "I don't know of any other quite like it" Was there concern over moving from the city's high-profile CBS affiliate to an independent? "The UofL athletic department is the focal point whether the station is No. 1, 3 or 4," U of L football coach Howard Schnellenberger said. "It's not like sitting and watching All in the Family' or whatever." "WDRB is more established than it was three years ago," Olsen said. "It's demonstrated that with new ownership, a regular newscast, hiring people like (anchorman) Jim Mitchell, putting up a new transmitter. This time we've made a quantum leap in the number and timing of exposures." The on-camera team has not been set WHAS sports director Dave Conrad and U of L's Don Russell do the games for WHAS. Dorkin said new WDRB sports director David Sullivan, a former anchor fa? ESPN who i hasn't arrived yet will be involved in some way. "It's an important programming move for the station," Dorkin said. "I'd pay a lot of money for a program with the kind of ratings U of L has. The upside is football. Basketball always has and always will be extremely popular. "But back when we had them before, football couldn't win a game. A bad game shown on delay isn't going to draw much interest Now they're competitive and could break through in the next couple of years." Miller said that, when it came to football coverage, WDRB "Jumped up and said, 'We'll do them all," " while WHAS indicated it would try. "I'm not sure what the ultimate sticking point was," said Neil Kuvin, the president and general manager of WHAS, "but we were willing to go way beyond what we did the last three years money-wise and performance-wise. "But we can only do so much under certain circumstances. It's no secret we've got obligations other than UofL, obligations perhaps WDRB doesn't have." WHAS, WDRB and WAVE all expressed Interest in UofL, and the decision, Miller said, came down to flexibility and availability rather than dollars. "WAVE was very strong and their proposal was outstanding," Olsen said, "but they had to wait on a contract renewal with Kentucky, and we didn't want to wait." U of L will get a major break financially. It produced and directed shows such as the "Sports Page" at its own expense. WDRB will pay production costs for everything unless it can share them with other stations or networks. Does the new transmitter, which will expand its coverage area by more than 4,000 square miles, bring WDRB up to speed with the other stations? "Effectively, yes," Dorkin said. "I know we'll get places we've never gotten before, and it will enable us to reach cable systems we couldn't reach before. We'll be able to get into places they (WHAS, WAVE and WLKY) don't, and they'll get In some we don't" But Kuvin said, the strength of the signal doesn't matter. "The ratings tell the story, and we've proven we've had the highest ratings the university has ever had in its history." WDRB currently airs Indiana University basketball games, but Dorkin said U of L games will take precedent However, he noted, UofL and IU usually don't play at the same time, so the station's IU coverage won't be greatly affected. "We're not committed to carry every IU game," he said. lead to 13 with 2:22 left in the third quarter. Hagan, who hit 13 of 20 shots en route to 34 points, plagued the Pioneers with his rugged inside play. He also grabbed 10 rebounds. "We structure our offense around Jason," Peeler said. "We just didn't get him the ball enough in the first half." While Hagan camped out down low, Harrodsburg's Micky Pardee took the high road, hitting 11 of 16 shots, Including two three-pointers. "I felt good when I started and just kept on shooting," the 6-3 senior said. "It feels great to get this win under our belt" Harrodsburg will face Fifth Region champion Caverna at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow. Caverna beat Greenville 64-62 In two overtimes last night KCD will take the loss as a learning experience. "Hopefully next time we play in a tournament" Peeler said, "we won't be wearing our panic signs." Caverna-Greenville: Caverna (15-6) and Greenville (14-10) could hardly have played it any closer. Neither team led by more than five points. They were tied at half-time. A 52-52 score sent them Into the first overtime. Four points for each team and three minutes later, OT number two. "We feel very fortunate to have won this game," Caverna coach Mike Deaton said. "We kinda outlasted them, I guess." After two free throws by Caver-na's Bryan Gentry put the Colonels up 60-58 with 1:43 left in the second overtime, Gentry stole the ball and drove for a layup and a four-point bulge. A couple of turnovers later, James Cary of Greenville hit two free throws to set up a wild finish. Caverna's Jason Claycomb, who led his team with 19 points, hit two free throws with 47 seconds left Then teammate Scotter Brents took a rebound of a Greenville miss the length of the floor for what should have been the clinching layup. But he missed it The Blackhawks' Cary grabbed the ball and fed Shannon Vincent (19 points) for a layup at 0:14. However, both teams turned the ball over twice in a frantic finish and Greenville never got a chance for the third overtime. rnies TP CLUB 6112 1 6114 Preston Hwy. 969-6199 Less Than 3 Minutes South 01 Fslrgrourtdi EXOTIC & XXX DANCERS PRIVATE COUCH A TABLESIDE DASCIC!
