Page 12 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, March 22, 1988 Sports Knicks' Pressure Kicks Spurs Associated Press Portland's Clyde Drexler drives on Sam Perkins Associated Press The New York Knicks are on the road again and, for a change, their latest tune turned out to be a hit. After having won only three of their first 30 road games, the Knicks withstood early 78 percent shooting by San Antonio and rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Spurs 133-121 Monday night and improve their playoff hopes. "I told our team at the half, regardless how far we were down (they had closed it to 67-62), we would wear out the Spurs in the second half and win going away," Coach Rick Pitino said. "They hurt us early in a man-to-man defense, so I went to the full-court pressure." Gerald Wilkins scored 25 points as the Knicks climbed into a tie with Philadelphia for second place in the Atlantic Division and the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They trail Indiana by three games and Cleveland by one-half game and lead Washington by one game. Elsewhere, Atlanta beat Milwaukee 115-105 and Phoenix defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 107-99. The Spurs took a 34-20 first-quarter lead, but the Knicks were ahead 102-92 going into the fourth quarter thanks to a 9-0 run in the last minute of the third period. Walter Berry led the Spurs with 27 points. He made 10 consecutive field goals in the first half but was blanked in the third quarter. "I felt really good in the first half. I couldn't miss," Berry said. "I think we lost our composure and everything stopped falling for us in the second half. I thought we played a decent game overall, but the inability to break the press and our defense breaking down made the difference." Patrick Ewing added 23 points and Mark Jackson 20 for the Knicks. NBA Roundup Hawks 115, Bucks 105 Kevin Willis scored seven of his 19 points during an 18-4 third-quarter run that took Atlanta from a 69-69 tie to an 85-73 lead. Dominique Wilkins, who led all scorers with 35 points, and Antoine Carr scored four points apiece during that stretch. Terry Cummings led Milwaukee with 26 points, Ricky Pierce had 21 and Jerry Reynolds, starting in place of the injured Sidney Moncrief, had 20. Carr added 17 points and Randy Wittman 12 for the Hawks, who are four games behind first-place Detroit and four ahead of third-place Milwaukee in the Central Division. "I think we started playing really hard," Carr said. "We did the things we should do at all times. I mean we got aggressive — the heat was turned up." Wilkins said the Hawks must continue playing aggressive basketball if they hope to successfully defend their division title "No question it is on your mind," he said. "But you can't look that far ahead. We've got to take it one game at a time until the Suns7,Clip~pers99 " Walter Davis scored 24 points and Jeff Hornacek had eight of his 17 in the final 2:05 as Phoenix dealt the Clippers their 26th straight road loss by outscoring Los Angeles 14-2 in the final three minutes. Hornacek's layup with 2:05 remaining forced the 14th tie of the game at 99. Davis made two free throws with 1:43 left to put the Suns ahead to stay and Hornacek added six more free throws to keep them ahead. Eddie Johnson scored 22 points for Phoenix and Mike Woodson had 24 for Los Angeles. Connecticut, Louisiana Tech Open NIT Round 2 HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut has the size. Louisiana Tech has Randy White. Whichever team best uses its advantage and neutralizes the other team's strength will likely win their the National Invitation Tournament second-round match tonight. "White's a player. He's their go-to guy," Connecticut Coach Jim Calhoun understated. The junior center is just about everything for Louisiana Tech, which switched from the Southland Conference to the new American South Conference this season. White scored 28 points on ll-of-14 shooting and grabbed 19 rebounds, leading the Bulldogs to a 66-56 first-round victory over Arkansas-Little Rock. He made 11 of 14 shots from the field, including one from 3-point range. He's averaging 18.5 points and 11.6 rebounds a game. "Randy White is as good as any 6-foot-8 big man in the country," Louisiana Tech Coach Tommy Joe Eagles said Sunday. "He's a big, strong kid. He plays a physical game, he moves well and he's got good offensive skills," the third-year coach said as he arrived at the Civic Center for a practice. The other second-round games will be played Tuesday night. It will be defending champion Southern Mississippi, 19-10, at Virginia Commonwealth, 22-11; Cleveland State, 22-7, at Ohio State, 17-12; Georgia, 20-15, at Middle Tennessee, 22-10; Boston College, 16-13, at Evansville, 21-7; Houston, 18-12, at Colorado State, 19-12; Oregon, 16-13, at New Mexico, 21-13, and Arkansas State, 20-13, at Stanford, 21-11. The quarterfinals are set for Friday and Saturday at campus sites. The semifinals, March 29, and the final, March 30, will be at New York's Madison Square Garden. It is the fifth straight season Louisiana Tech has reached postseason play. Tyson Loses IBF Title For Not Wearing Belt : Associated Press Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been stripped of his title by the International Boxing Federation, according to a published report. Sy Roseman, public relations director for the IBF, said Tyson forfeited the title Monday when he entered the ring for his defense against Tony Tubbs without the IBF belt, the New York Times reported in its Tuesday editions. Tyson, after wearing only his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association belts into the ring, stopped challenger Tony Tubbs with six seconds left in the second round. Tyson's manager, Bill Cayton, was told before the fight by IBF championship committee chairman Bill Brennan that the title would be vacated if the champion failed to wear the organization's belt into the ring, Roseman said. Cayton said Tyson did not wear the belt and that no sanction fee was paid to the IBF because he did not want to embarrass the Japanese. The Japan Boxing Commission does not recognize the IBF. Asked before the stripping what he would do if it occurred, Tyson said, "I'll win it back again." Roseman said the IBF's leading contenders, Trevor Berbick and Carl Williams, would fight for the vacated title, the Times reported. Tyson earned the first portion of his undisputed title from Berbick, then the WBC champion, with a second-round knockout on Nov. 22,1986.
