C4 SATURDAY, JANUARY 20. 1996 SPORTS THE SALINA JOURNAL SUPER BOWL Pressure of big game no big deal for Cowboys Newton says team is relaxed, confident after rough regular season By The Associated Press IRVING, Texas — Nate Newton says there was more pressure on the Dallas Cowboys during the regular season than they'll probably feel at the Super Bowl. Newton says the Cowboys worked under smothering pressure throughout the regular season. The playoffs NEWTON have been something of a relief, allowing the team to relax and play its best. "We were the first ones to say in training camp that the Super Bowl was our goal," Newton said. "The pressure started building up right there. Then the media came along and picked up on it and it got but of hand." V NETS-HORNETS TRADE Newton, a Pro Bowl offensive tackle, said winning big was the only acceptable outcome for each regular season game. "The wins weren't good enough and the losses sure weren't," Newton said. "It's amazing how everything we do gets blown up. It's been a wild year. If we lost and were doing a radio talk show, then that was supposed to be the reason we lost. It was crazy." Newton, who has Super Bowl rings from the Cowboys' two wins under Jimmy Johnson, said the team is solidly behind coach Barry Switzer. "We believed in each other and we had high expectations and we pulled it off," Newton said. "We let some things the media said bother us but we shouldn't have. We should know by now that nothing makes any difference except what we do on the field." Newton said the Cowboys are relaxed and confident now. "I think we'll play a very good Super Bowl," Newton said. "Pittsburgh is good, but we have two good games against Philadelphia and Green Bay to build on. I think we'll play a good game. I don't think we'll be uptight or pressing." Fullback Daryl Johnston said the fact the Cowboys have Super Bowl experience doesn't automatically mean they are better than the Steelers, who haven't been to the NFL championship game since the 1970s. "I remember on our first trip, the Buffalo Bills had been there three straight years and it didn't do them much good," Johnston said. "The experience factor didn't bother us. However, the team that has been there might have a little advantage." The Cowboys are going to Arizona Sunday to get adjusted to Super Bowl week. The Steelers are waiting until Monday. Some players are bringing in limousines from Dallas so they will have ready transportation in Phoenix. Former Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson said jokingly: "In my day we were lucky enough to have enough money to hail a cab." T BROWNS MOVE Modell not seeking buyers for NFL team Reports say owner would sell if he gets expansion franchise By The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Baltimore- bound Art Modell reiterated Friday: the Cleveland Browns are not for sale. "He's not going to sell the team," Modell spokesman David Hopcraft said in response to published reports about a possible deal involving the Browns, Modell and an expansion franchise for Baltimore. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer and The (Toledo) Blade reported Friday that Modell indicated he would consider selling the Browns to allow them to stay in Cleveland if he received an expansion franchise in Baltimore. The newspapers cited sources they did not identify in reporting on a closed-door meeting of owners Thursday in Atlanta. "It was very casual in a freewheeling discussion," Hopcraft said. "Art is'not going to sell the team." The possibility of selling the Browns was raised by Wayne Weaver, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and a member of the NFL stadium committee. "They looked at all kinds of ideas," Hopcraft said. "Art said, 'I'm going to consider the ideas.'" NFL spokesman Joe Browne said there may have been 300 different ideas mentioned at the meeting. "I'm not at liberty to comment on any of them," he said. "At this point, each has as much or as little chance of becoming reality as the next." Cleveland Mayor Michael White, who has led the effort to keep the Browns in Ohio, was withholding comment. White is preparing for talks with the NFL Feb. 8-9 on the issue. John Moag, chairman of the Maryland Stadium Authority, wasn't interested in an expansion team. "We have a contract with Art Modell and his team," Moag said. BRIEFLY All-star Anderson dealt to Hornets Nets trade enigmatic point guard, acquire veterans Gill, Reeves By The Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Kenny Anderson's desire to test the free agency market at the end of the season left the New Jersey Nets with no choice. They picked the team for him. Facing the prospect of losing the former all-star point and getting nothing in return, the Nets sent Anderson to the Charlotte Hornets on Friday in a four-player deal. In return for Anderson and seldom-used swingman Gerald Glass, the Nets received guards Kendall Gill and Khalid Reeves. Charlotte should be able to sign Anderson to a new contract, said his attorney, David Falk. Anderson rejected a six-year, $40 million contract at the start of the season, saying he hadn't made up his mind on free agency. Getting Gill and Reeves gives New Jersey two young guards who have multiyear contracts. Charlotte gets a player who has career averages 15.3 points and 7.7 assists. T AUSTRALIAN OPEN Anderson, a former New York City high school star who was the second pick in the 1991 draft, wasn't bitter. "It's something that happens when you become a free agent," he said. "We were trying to weigh my free agency market-wise, just play it out and weigh the options. I didn't want to make a hasty decision." Anderson's departure will allow the Nets to move Chris Childs into the starting point guard position with Reeves and veteran Vern Fleming as his backups. Reeves, Miami's top draft pick hi 1994, averaged 8.1 points and 3.1 assists in 20 games. Glass averaged 2.1 points in 10 games. The fourth-year player has spent most of the season on the injured list. Neither the Nets nor the Hornets have played well this season. Charlotte was two games below .500 heading into Friday night's game against Miami. New Jersey had a 15-21 record prior to its game against the Washington Bullets. Ironically, his final game for New Jersey was in a win over Charlotte on Wednesday. He had 22 points, 10 assists and five rebounds. T BASEBALL Martinez named outstanding DH By The Associated Press SEATTLE — Edgar Martinez, who won his second American League batting title last season, was voted the AL's outstanding designated hitter of the year on Friday. Martinez, 33, got 82 of 83 first- place votes by sportswriters, broadcasters and public relations directors. Cleveland's Eddie Murray got the other first-place vote. Martinez, who hit .343 to win the 1992 AL batting championship, hit .356 last season with 29 homers, 113 RBIs and 50 doubles, all career highs. No. 2 Tigers square off with Highlands tonight HAYS — Fort Hays State puts its newly attained No. 2 national ranking on the line tonight against New Mexico Highlands. Tipoff for the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference game is 8 p.m. at Gross Coliseum. The women's game begins at 6 p.m. The Tigers, 15-0 overall and 7-0 in the RMAC, vaulted five spots to second in this week's NCAA Division II poll after last Saturday's 8279 victory over Nebraska-Kearney. Center Alonzo Goldston leads the Tigers in scoring (22.0) and rebounding (8.7). He's joined in the starting lineup by guard Geoff Eck (16.9 points), forwards Sherick Simpson (14.5 points, 6.9 rebounds) and Anthony Pope (12.3 points, 6.0 rebounds), and point guard Chad Creamer (7.4 points, 4.7 assists). New Mexico Highlands is 3-10 overall, 1-5 in the RMAC. The Fort Hays State women have lost their last two games and are 85 overall, 4-2 in the RMAC. New Mexico Highlands is 8-5,4-2. Shockers begin long road trip against SIU CARBONDALE, HI. — The Wichita State Shockers, losers hi six of their last seven games, begin a four- game road trip tonight against Missouri Valley Conference foe Southern Illinois. Tipoff is 7 p.m. The Shockers (5-12 overall, 1-6 MVC) have lost two in a row, both at home, since ending a four-game losing streak on Jan. 10. WSU lost a 61-59 decision to Illinois State Tuesday in its last game. Terrance Flowers' layup with 24 seconds left gave the Shockers a 5958 lead but Maurice Trotter's 3- point basket with six seconds left dashed their hopes for a victory. Southern Illinois (8-6,1-2) was scheduled to play at Drake Thursday, but the game was postponed by a blizzard in Des Moines, Iowa. From Staff Reports MAURE WEIGH.

Courier survives marathon match against Aussie Woodbridge finally falls after 4-hour, 31 -minute battle against No. 8 seed By The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia — For sheer drama, Jim Courier may never play a match that will top the one a year ago at the Australian Open when Pete Sampras wept uncontrollably on court for his cancer-stricken coach and still won. For utter tension, Courier may never experience a match more riveting than his 4-hour, 31- minute victory, from Friday night to Saturday morning, over Australian Todd Woodbridge and a crowd that treated the former two-time champion like an evil invader. Courier's final forehand into the corner, a shot the exhausted Woodbridge couldn't return, came at 1:13 a.m and closed out a 6-3, 6-7 (7-2), 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 8-6 win that kept 15,000 fans screaming to the end. "It was a good, tough-fought match, and those are fun to win," Courier said. "The crowd was on me tonight. They were telling me to double-fault. "Australians are known for their fair play, in general. I think probably a few people ... just aren't tennis knowledgeable. It didn't affect me on the court, but it's extra satisfying to win because of those people." From Woodbridge's point of view, the crowd was "fantastic," giving him his greatest thrill in tennis. "I've never played anywhere and had people just yelling for me," the popular Woodbridge said. "It was phenomenal. The experience was one that I'll never forget. When I broke back to go 54 (in the final set), I'm sitting down and I've got goose bumps, which is something I've never experienced on a tennis court before. "The whole place went bananas. I'm sorry I couldn't finish it the whole way for them." Courier, seeded No. 8, said he'd never seen the No. 29-ranked Woodbridge play so well. "I am disappointed I lost, but I guess the only smart way to look at it is that I played a terrific match," Woodbridge said. "I couldn't have tried any harder. I left my insides on the court. Emotionally, I left everything I could out there."
