4B a Herald-Zeitung o Sunday, January 11, 1998 Spurs get burned by Suns PHOENIX (AP) — Rex Chapman and Antonio McDycss each scored 18 points, and the Phoenix Suns played a turnover-free game for three quarters to snap San Antonio's five-game winning streak, 100-79 Friday night. Steve Nash scored 16 points, and Jason Kidd had 10 points and 12 assists for the Suns, who did not commit a turnover until McDyess lost the ball out of bounds trying a spin move on David Robinson 1:50 in the fourth period. By then, Phoenix had an 85-61 lead after McDyess dunked and hit a jumper in the first 80 seconds of the period. Chuck Person scored 16 points for San Antonio. Robinson had 15 points and 16 rebounds, and Tim Duncan had 15 points and nine rebounds. The Suns finished with seven turnovers — three more than their franchise-best and four more than the NBA record held by Portland and Orlando.

By the time Ceballos came out, the Suns had increased their 53-45 halflimc lead to 67-51. Chapman made it 70-53 with a 3-pointer with 4:58 left in the third period, and Nash hit another with 3:09 to go, making it 73-56. Phoenix finished the quarter with an 8-0 spurt as Nash hit a 13-foot jumper, Chapman had a three- point play, and George McCloud sank a 3-pointer from the corner. No more than five points separated the teams until Kidd made a layup to give the Suns a 35-28 lead with 8:53 left in the second quarter. Phoenix increased the lead to eight points four times in the quarter, the last time after Chapman made a short shot in the lane with six seconds to Play- But the Suns' 10-of-16 free-throw shooting kept them from opening a wider gap.

Longhorns blasted by Jayhawks, 102-72 AUSTIN (AP) — Fourth-ranked Kansas may have to wait another month for All-America center Raef LaFrentz to return from a broken finger on his right hand. But Paul Pierce and Billy Thomas are doing everything they can to hold things down until he gets back. Thomas was 6-of-6 from 3-point range in the second half and Pierce scored 31 points as the Jayhawks blew out Texas 102-72 Saturday, the Longhorns' worst home loss in 14 years. "I can't wait for him (LaFrentz) to get back in the lineup," Pierce said. "Everyone can say, 'Well, without him, Kansas isn't as good.' Maybe not. But this might be a blessing in disguise. "Other players are stepping up now. It might be good for us later on, when he comes back." One of those players stepping up is Thomas, who helped the Jayhawks (19-2, 3-0 Big 12) break from a 14-point halftime lead by hitting three 3-pointers in the first five minutes of the second half as Kansas went up 54-33 with 14:56 left. "In the second half, I was just in the zone," said Thomas, who was 9- of-13 from the field, including 8- of-11 from 3-point range, and finished with a career-high 27 points. Kansas, playing its sixth consecutive game without LaFrentz, won its third straight since a 76-65 upset by Hawaii. Luke Axtell scored 18 points to lead Texas (6-8, 0-3), which lost its third straight. The Longhorns, playing without injured leading scorer Kris Clack (knee), are off to their worst start since 1992-93, when they opened 0-4 in the Southwest Conference and finished 11-17. "The bright side for us is we have a lot of young people who are going to get better," said Texas coach Tom Fenders, who starts two freshmen and two sophomores. "I have to stay positive with them and help them gain their confidence. Kansas is a great team with a great killer instinct." The loss was the worst at home for Texas since a 103-72 defeat by Southern Methodist on Feb. 29, 1984. Pierce, who also had 10 rebounds, scored 15 points in the first half to help Kansas break out of a sluggish start. The Jayhawks opened 3-of-16 from the field as the teams played to a 13-13 tie with 11:32 left in the first half. But Lester Earl, who added 15 points for the Jayhawks, scored on a thunderous dunk and Pierce scored four points in a 10-0 run that put Kansas up 23-13 with 8:21 left. The Jayhawks held Texas without a field goal for a four-minute stretch that included the run and then held the Longhorns without a field goal for 3:30 at the end of the first half as they built a 39-25 lead. Thomas took over in the second half, hitting 3s from all around the arc as Texas seemed disoriented on defense and left him open for most of his shots. "I was surprised at how open I was," Thomas said. "I think that enabled me to relax a little and concentrate on my shot. "I'm not one for bragging, but I'll put myself against any shooter in the nation in a 3-point contest." No. 1 North Carolina 81, Virginia 73 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Antawn Jamison scored seven of his 26 points over a 1:05 span in the second half and No. 1 North Carolina made a season-high 35 free throws Saturday to defeat foul- plagued Virginia 81-73. The Tar Heels (17-0,4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won for the 33rd time in their last 34 games. North Carolina made 35 of 42 free throws — including its first 14 straight — to win its 15th straight ACC game. The Cavaliers (8-7, 1-2) fell to 355 in Chapel Hill and 0-13 in the Smith Center, but remained in the game most of the way just days after an embarrassing loss to Liberty. Norman Nolan, coming off consecutive 30-point games, led Virginia with 29 points. Vince Carter added 18 points for the Tar Heels, while Staples had 20 for Virginia.
