,6C NEWS-PRESS, MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 1989 Pitt overcomes Sooners; Virginia downs Tar Heels News-Press Wire Services PITTSBURGH Pitt Coach Paul Evans didn't expect Oklahoma to play very good defense on Brian Shorter Sunday. Evans was right. The third-ranked Sooners' starting frontline got in foul trouble early and Shorter took advantage to score a career-high 37 points and grab 12 rebounds as the Panthers ended Oklahoma's 11-game winning streak with a 99-91 upset victory at Fitzgerald Field House. "We got some of their players in foul trouble pretty early and they weren't contesting too many of my shots," Shorter said. "They were just standing around when I got the ball. And I was just making the shots." The Oklahoma (13-2) starting frontline of Stacey King, Tyrone Jones and Mike Bell each drew three fouls In the first half and Shorter dissected them for 22 points to give Pitt (8-6) a 55-49 halftime advantage. King drew his fourth foul with 1 1 :58 to go in the game and had to lay off Shorter, who scored 1 1 points in the final 10 minutes. Shorter, a 6-foot-6 sophomore who sat out last season because of Proposition 48, has shot a sizzling 67 percent from the field (82 of 123) in his last 10 games. Sunday, he was 1 1-of-14 from the floor and 15 of 18 shots from the foul line. Pitt, playing its fourth Top Ten team in 17 days, also got a big boost from forward Rod Brookin, who came off the bench early to replace starter Darelle Porter who had the flu. Brooken scored a career-high 24 points. Brookin scored in double figures for just the fourth time this season. His previous high was 23 points against Oklahoma two years ago. "You saw the real Pitt team today," Oklahoma Coach Billy Tubbs said. "They worked us physically and emotionally." The Sooners wasted a 37-point effort by guard Mookie Blaylock and a 26-point effort by King, who made his first start in four games because of a broken left index finger.

Small forward Irving Thomas scored 16 points and helped Hunter with stopping Nix underneath the basket. Shooting guard Tharon Mayes added 14 points. Aubrey Boyd and Derrick Mitchell were the only other Seminoles who played more than five minutes. "It's the first time in a long while I've kept an 'Iron Five' in there most of the game," said Kennedy. "But they were all playing well and with a lot of confidence." t That game plan included a half-court trap defense that confused and unraveled Tennessee. The Vols produced just four points during a five-minute drought beginning with 8:08 left in the half. FSU forged a 50-28 lead after Dawson scored inside at 2:29. "They really hurt us with their quickness," said Tennessee Coach Don DeVoe: "When Florida State wants to play a great defense, they can play it. They're very aggressive. , We weren't able to make the adjustments when necessary." In the second half, Tennessee GOODYEAR... YOUR LR CARE PLACE.

Indiana's Bob Knight perhaps in a more mellow mood after a day to reflect on the magnitude of his latest achievement, said Sunday that his 500th col-lege coaching victory was a tribute to all the players he has had over the past 24 years. After the Hoosiers beat Northwestern 92-76 Saturday, in typical Knight sarcasm, he said to the media: "If I can coach long enough to win 500 more. I'll be the nicest guy in the world, because all you . . . will be gone. You can't last that long with me. I've outlasted a lot of you guys as it is." . But Knight, who has 398 victories in 18 years at Indiana, also has outlasted a lot of coaches. And at age 48, he figures to add many more victories and many more milestones to his impressive and sometimes controversial record. "Anytime a coach reaches a milestone or is accorded any honor, it is a great honor becuse it's a team honor," Knight said Sunday on his weekly television show. "Any time a coach reaches any plateau, whatever it might be . . . like I was very pleased to be honored with the Silver Medal from the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame a few years ago, because I thought it was a recognition of our players, all the players that had played for me up until that time here, and the teams and their accomplishments." Knight came to Indiana in 1971 after compiling a 102-50 record in six years as coach at Army. His overall record now is 500-183, with eight Big Ten titles, three NCAA crowns and one NIT title. He also coached U.S. gold-medal teams in the '79 Pan Am Games and '84 Olympics and has sent 1 9 Indiana players to the pros. But he said he couldn't have done it alone. "Because only through the efforts of the players do coaches ever accomplish anything," Knight said.

OOODYEAR INDEPENDENT DEALER HOUSE OF TIRES & AUTO SERVICE 936-1533 4028 Cleveland Ave. (Across from Edison Mall) Mon.-Fri. 7:30-6:00 P.M. & Sat. 7:30-4:00 P.M. asked school administrators about the possibility of removing Coach Bob Dukiet. "I really don't know why they haven't made a change yet," said Marc Marotta, a Milwaukee attorney who played at Marquette from 1981-84. "Obviously this is not working out. Things look as if they're going to get worse and worse," Marotta said. "The alumni at Marquette would have to be a bunch of androids not to be upset with what's going on. They have expressed it to a number of people in the administration." Marquette is 7-6 this season, Du-kiet's third as coach. In his first season, Marquette was 1 6-1 3 and went to the NIT. But last season the Warriors were beset by off-court problems and fell to 10-18, the school's worst record In 23 years. This season, those off-court problems have continued. Gerald Posey, a sophomore guard, didn't return after the holiday break and transferred to Trenton State. Another player, John Leurck, skipped a practice because he wasn't happy with playing time. A Marquette booster club says it is also ready to send a letter to school officials suggesting changes in the program. Marquette Athletic Director Bill Cords said any letter received by administators would be answered but he had no comments on the remarks by Marotta. Elsewhere ... Kato Armstrong, leading scorer on the Southern Methodist team, has been declared academically ineligible to play for the spring semester, university officials said in Dallas. Armstrong led the Mustangs with a 19.9-point average this season. He finished as the seventh-leading scorer in SMU history with 1,297 points and ranked fourth among school career leaders with 389 assists. . . . Ellis McKennie, who was George Washington's leading scorer before suffering a stress fracture of the right foot last month, will be red-shirted.
