D4 THURSDAY. JANUARY 18. 1996 SPORTS THE SALINA JOURNAL V SUPER BOWL Cowboys get back to work Dallas feeling right at home in friendly Sun Devil Stadium By The Associated Press IRVING, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys have always put their feet up on the furniture and made themselves at home in Sun Devil Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals and site of the 1996 Super Bowl. Much of the sellout crowd in Tempe, Ariz., cheered the Cowboys as they dominated the Cardinals 37-13 on Christmas, ending Buddy Ryan's tenure as the Cardinals' coach. It'll be the same field on Jan. 28, when the Cowboys seek a record- tying fifth Super Bowl title in an unprecedented eighth appear- ance. But the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers bear little resemblance to Ryan's former crew, and Cowboys coach Barry Switzer will be looking for all the comfort he can find for his team. "That should be plusses for us, not just from a crowd aspect, but our players like the field," said Switzer. Wary of Super Bowl-week distractions, Switzer is determined to have his NFC champions team fully prepared to meet the Steelers before his team boards its charter flight next week. "We're going to get our game planning in this week, build offensively and defensively what we're going to play with, and we'll take it out there," Switzer said. "With all the hullabaloo that you've got to deal with out there, it's very difficult to do outside your environment the type of game planning you can do at home," he said. "You take it out there for dress rehearsal and work on executing." Countering Pittsburgh's "Steel Curtain" defensive line likely heads Switzer's agenda. Quarterback Troy Aikman hopes so. Not a mobile passer, Aikman knows he won't be able to elude the Steelers' pass rush if his protection breaks down. "I might have to move around more, but I won't be able to. They do a nice job in putting pressure on the quarterback. Greg Lloyd and Kevin Greene do an outstanding job. It'll be more of a concern for our offensive line to try to find some ways to slow those guys down." T BASEBALL OWNERS MEETING Knights / Sacred Heart falls in SIT FROM PAGE D1 Sacred Heart received a solid performance from Ryan Ash, who scored 17 points, including nine in the third quarter that rallied the Knights. The Knights led 4-2 early on before Concordia went in front to stay with a 13-2 flurry. "We came out and I don't know if we were tight, but we just didn't play the type of ball Sacred Heart's played this year," said Sacred Heart coach Tim Orth, whose team stands 4-6 and will play Clay Center Friday at 3:15 p.m., in a loser's bracket game. "They're a very deliberate team and you can't afford to dig a big hole because they do a good job of maximizing their scoring opportunities." Poor free throw shooting con- BRIEFLY tributed to Sacred Heart's early struggles as the Knights converted just 8 of 17 from the stripe in the first half. "It's been our Achilles' heel, our weak spot," said Orth, whose team entered the tournament shooting just 58 percent from the free throw line. "We're decent shooters, but we get on the free throw line and can't seem to put them in."

Late drought costs KW men against Sterling STERLING — Outscored 29-8 over the final 10 minutes, Kansas Wesleyan men dropped an 89-74 Kansas Conference men's decision to Sterling Wednesday night at the Gleason Center. Wesleyan fell to 4-11 overall and 2-4 : in the conference, while Sterling climbed to 6-9 and 3-2. Down by as many as 12 early, the Coyotes battled back and forged in front 66-60 with 11 minutes left and still led by three (66-63) at the 10:15 mark. But Wesleyan proceeded to miss two'layups and commit four turnovers which Sterling turned into points and a lead it maintained down the stretch. "Their defense did a good job of forcing us into some errors," Wesleyan coach Jerry Jones said. "We played hard the whole game, but not well." Jason Gentz and Fred Goodnight each scored 16 points to lead Wesleyan, while Dwayne Coleman added 14. Garst wins two events in Manhattan meet MANHATTAN — Kade Garst of Salina South won two events Wednesday in a swimming and diving double-dual against Manhattan High School. Garst, a junior at South, finished first in the 100-yard freestyle (51.69) and 100-backstroke (1:02.22). "Kade swam well tonight," Salina coach Keith Smith said. Steve Waters of South and Chad Belton of Salina Central each won an event in the meet. Waters, also a junior, finished first in the 500-freestyle (5:38.45), while Belton, a senior, placed first in the 100-breaststroke (1:08.87). Belton matched his state qualifying time set earlier in the season. "He repeated his qualifying time, so we should see that drop in the bigger meets to come," Smith said. Neither Salina school had any new state qualifiers although the 200- and 400-freestyle relays teams from South are within one second of qualifying. Manhattan won both duals, 131-52 over Central and 111-69 over South. The Salina schools are back in action next Wednesday at home against Newton. Wesleyan women fall short to Sterling STERLING — Kansas Wesleyan's women took unbeaten and sixth- ranked Sterling to the wire before dropping a 69-67 decision in a Kansas Conference game Wednesday night. The Lady Coyotes had battled back from a 14-point deficit to cut Sterling's lead to two points before Tashia Gregston hit 3 of 4 free throws in the final minute to ice the game. The free throws by Gregston helped wipe away a 6 of 20 performance at the line by Sterling, which entered the game as the best free throw shooting team in the KCAC. The loss dropped.Wesleyan 2-4 in the conference and 7-7 overall, while Sterling improved to 5-0 and 14-0. "The schedule hasn't been kind to us," KWU head coach Tom Hughes said. "We play Friends and we're down by three (points) with a minute to play. We play Bethany and we're in the game with two minutes to go, and now this." Sterling led 64-50 with 14 minutes left, but Wesleyan went on a 24-12 run over the next 11 minutes to cut the Warrior lead to two points (6664) with three minutes to go. Gregston then hit her three free throws before KWU hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Sterling was paced by 23 points and 14 rebounds from Mieka Woudstra. Tony Harbin had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Jolina Garoutte 19 points and 7 boards for the Lady Coyotes who play at Ottawa on Sat- e play a big hit Passing vote from 21 of 28 teams needed to implement plan By The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — If everything goes according to plan, the New York Mets will play the Yankees during the 1997 season, the Cubs will face the White Sox, the Dodgers will meet the Angels and the Giants will play the Athletics. Interleague play was unanimously approved by baseball's ruling executive council during a meeting that ended late Tuesday night. The plan needs the approval of 21 of the 28 teams, and owners may vote as soon as today. "Interleague play, which has long been a dream of mine, is one step closer to fruition," acting commissioner Bud Selig said. "The overwhelming percentage of fans have wanted interleague play." There doesn't appear to be much T BIG EIGHT BASKETBALL opposition among owners. The plan, which calls for 15-16 inter- league games for each team, also . must be approved by the Major League Baseball Players Association. "This is an idea that obviously merits serious consideration and we will give it that," union head Donald Fehr said by telephone from Washington. "We have to take a hard look at anything that will be beneficial to the game." The National and American leagues haven't played each other during the regular season since the AL first challenged its senior rival in 1900. Traditionalists argue that interleague play would detract from the World Series. "That's one of the great arguments," Selig said. "I've heard that for years, I feel that argument's absurd." In 1997, AL East teams would play NL East teams, AL Central teams would play AL Central teams and AL West teams would play NL West teams. Teams in the East and Central would play a three-game series against each a rival in the other division, while teams in the West would play a four-game series. If interleague play begins, some owners want to resolve the league's split stance on the designated hitter. NL opposition to it is staunch, while the AL is split. The players' association certainly would attempt to block elimination of the DH, which creates high- salaried positions for veterans. "You have to resolve it in one form or another," Selig said. "The solution to the DH can come in a myriad of ways." Even traditionalist general managers voiced support for inter r league play. "We're dealing with younger fans' now, more modernistic fans who • think change is more exciting, " Atlanta Braves general manager John Schuerholz said. « Nebraska breezes past UMKC, 87-69 MAURI WEIGEl Auto - Home Insurance Phone 827-2906 115 East Iron Waynes Replacement Windows & Remodeling Carl Strecker, Salesman Showroom At 1900 S.

Wesleyan resumes conference play Saturday at Ottawa. Wilson lifts BMC men to 79-78 win COLBY — Marvin Wilson capped a 17-point performance with a basket at the buzzer that propelled Brown Mackie men to a thrilling 79-78 junior college road victory over Colby on Wednesday. "It was a great win," said Brown Mackie coach Francis Flax, whose team improved to 10-10. The loss was a dramatic turn of events for Colby. Trailing 77-76, the Trojans worked the ball to Keith Lee, whose shot with six seconds was deflected. In the scramble for the rebound, Colby sophomore Harold Rasul emerged with the ball and scored with three seconds left for a 78-77 lead. •" Following a Brown Mackie timeout, the Lions were forced to use another after they couldn't trigger the ball inbounds. Brown Mackie then executed its designed play when three passes led to Wilson's game-winning basket from the left side of the free throw line. "When Rasul picked up the deflected shot and scored that could have broke our backs," Flax said, "but we came back and executed perfect and got a basket." In a see-saw game, Colby opened up an eight-point second-half lead behind its 3-point shooting. The Trojans converted 11 times behind the arc, led by six 3-point baskets from Lee and five from Mike Washington. But a change in defenses enabled Brown Mackie to curtail Colby's long-range success. "We dropped into a 2-3 zone and finally had pressure on them in the corners and they couldn't hit it (the 3s)," Flax said. Wayne Houston's 22 points paced Brown Mackie, which also received double-figure scoring from Wilson and Gary Johnson (16). Lee poured in 22 and Rasul 21 for Colby, which dropped to 10-7. .Brown Mackie turns its attention to Saturday afternoon's 4 p.m. tip-off at Central McPherson. From Staff Reports By The Associated Press LINCOLN, Neb. — Senior guard Erick Strickland scored 15 points in 22 minutes Wednesday as Nebraska breezed past Missouri-Kansas City 87-69. Nebraska (13-4) fell behind 7-3 hi the first three minutes of the game but the Huskers then went on an 110 run to go up 14-7 on Strickland's 3- pointer with 14:41 remaining. Missouri-Kansas City (4-7) came back to cut the lead to 16-14. Nebraska then countered with a 17-5 spurt to take control of the game, mounting a 33-19 lead on Tom Wald's basket with 7:16 left in the half. The Huskers led 47-28 at intermission, the Kangaroos then cut the margin to 14 in the opening minutes of the second period. A second Nebraska run, this one 16-6, put the game out of reach. Nebraska led 69-44 when Husker coach Danny Nee cleared his bench with 10:30 left. Freshman forward Venson Hamilton came off the bench to score 11 points for Nebraska, which had 11 of its 12 players score in the game. Nebraska shot 59 percent in the first half and 53 percent for the game, while holding the Kangaroos to 32 percent in the first half and 37 for the game. • OKLAHOMA STATE 91, CAL- STATE-NORTHRIDGE 58 — At Stillwater, Okla., Chianti Roberts scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Oklahoma State defeated Cal State-Northridge.
