Sports The Salina Journal Sunday, January 5,1986 Page 9 Memphis State trips Jayhawks in overtime MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — For Memphis State basketball coach Dana Kirk, his unbeaten, ninth- ranked Tigers' 83-80 overtime victory Saturday over No. 5 Kansas was pain and pleasure. "We suffered through thorns the first half and enjoyed roses in the second half," Kirk said. Junior center William Bedford) scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds and senior point guard Andre Turner added 20 points to lead the Tigers to their 12th victory. Kansas, led by Calvin Thompson's 21 points and Greg Dreiling's 18, is 12-2. "We missed some shots that were ill-advised," Jayhawk coach Larry Brown said. "We had some silly fouls that hurt us at crucial times and allowed them to stay in the game." The Jayhawks, who shot 62.9 percent from the floor during the first half, took a 41-36 halftime lead, although Kansas led by 11 points midway through the first half. The Tigers' free-throw shooting, 16 of 16 in the first half, helped narrow the margin to 41-36 at intermission. "We shot our free throws very well," Kirk said. "In fact, that's what kept us in the ballgame. Because we were shooting our free throws so well, it became our second-chance offense. By taking it to the basket, we would either score or shoot free throws." The Tigers jumped to a 79-75 lead in the first minute of overtime on Bedford's jumper and Turner's layup. After the Jayhawks drew to MC women find touch to post win ByBRADCATT Assistant Sports Editor Marymount's women shrugged off a season-long shooting slump and a two-week layoff Saturday night at Smoot Gymnasium. And in the process, the Spartans posted an impressive 80-71 triumph over Friends University. The victory was the llth in 14 outings for Marymount this season and stretched the Spartans' winning streak to six games. Marymount, which was shooting 40 percent from the field as a team in its first 13 games; fired in 51 percent of its 76 attempts Saturday night. The Spartans also won the rebounding battle against the Falcons (37-36) and committed only 13 turnovers. "It was a game coaches hope for," said Marymount coach Daryl Hoelting. "Every girl we played did a good job for us. That (13 turnovers) is excellent, especially for a team that runs and guns." Marymount never trailed in the contest. But each time the Spartans appeared ready to run the Falcons off the floor, Friends caught fire itself. "I knew we wouldn't bury those guys," Hoelting said. "We played pretty well but they're a good basketball team, too." The Falcons, who had already posted lopsided wins this season over last year's NAIA District 10 finalists — St. Mary of the Plains and Emporia State — had a decent night themselves as the gals from Wichita shot 53 percent from the field. But it wasn't enough. The Spartans gave early indications they came to play as they scored buckets on each of their first five possessions to grab a 10-2 lead. "We played good defense and got four or five good shots at the of- 79-77, Vincent Askew sank a one- hander from eight feet away to make it 81-77. The Jayhawks went into a press and forced a Tiger foul, but on the throw-in Kansas' Ron Kellogg lost control and was called for pushing. Baskerville Holmes sank both free throws to run it to 83-79 with 29 seconds left. Memphis State blocked a Jayhawk shot at 18 seconds. Kansas' only hope was to force fouls, but the Jayhawks managed to sink only one shot in the final 10 seconds. Dreiling missed the first of two free throws but hit the second. Memphis State tied it 55-55 on Turner's off-balance layup shot with 14:16 left in regulation time. The lead bounced back and forth until sophomore forward Askew tied it up again at 75-75 with 1:34 left. Both teams had opportunities to go ahead in the final minute, but neither squad could get the ball to fall. The victory was particularly sweet for Turner, the 5-foot-10 "Little General" of the team that made it to the NCAA Final Four last season. Last season, Kansas defeated the Tigers 75-71 at Lawrence while Turner was in Memphis for the funeral of his father. KANSAS (80) Kellogg 5-14 2-2 12, Manning 7-12 2-2 16, Dreiling 7-12 4-6 18.

Memphis State's Vincent Askew gains control off the basketball but is trapped on the floor and surrounded by a trio of Kansas Jayhawks: Greg Dreiling (30), Calvin Thompson (center) and Chris Piper.

The Spartans built their lead to 22-9 when junior guard Angela Hyde swished a pair of 17-footers from the wing. At that point, Marymount was shooting a sizzling 73 percent from the field and owned a 12-2 advantage on the boards. Spartan center Andre Schmidt was especially effective in the first half when she scored 16 of her 21 points. The 5-11 junior scored 10 of her first- half points at the end of Spartan fast breaks. Friends, however, battled back to within 36-33 late in the opening half behind the play of Keitha Adams and Heidi Wimmer before Marymount took a 39-33 lead at intermission. Good man-to-man defense characterized the Spartans' early play in the second half as Marymount's lead reached 50-38 with 14:12 remaining. While Friends shut down Schmidt in the second half, a trio of Spartans — Hyde, Ruth Stallbaumer and Kristy Bradley — picked up the slack with some good perimeter shooting. Hyde and Stallbaumer scored four buckets apiece in the final half, while Bradley scored all 10 of her points after intermission. Marymount appeared in great shape when point-guard Lisa Walthall hit consecutive perimeter jumpers to give the Spartans a 70-53 cushion with 6:07 remaining. But again, the Falcons didn't quit. They reeled off 10 unanswered points in a 2:15 span to get back in the hunt. And if Wimmer had gotten a pointblank follow shot to fall with the score 72-64 and 3:05 remaining, the final minutes may have gotten quite interesting. But after Wimmer's miss, Stallbaumer buried a 17-footer from the baseline and Bradley connected on a 16-footer from wing to seal the Spartan victory. While Schmidt's 21 points paced the Spartans' attack, Hyde and Stallbaumer finished with 15 and 14 points, respectively. Friends, which fell to 6-3, was paced by Wimmer's 15 points. Stacey Blankenship chipped in 14 points for the Falcons and Adams added 12. Marymount returns to action Friday night when the Spartans meet Northeastern Oklahoma in the opening round of the Coal Miners Classic at Pittsburg.

(AP) — Tim Norris, playing in relatively calm weather 10 miles from the ocean, shot a 3- under-par 68 on Saturday and held a two-stroke lead over Dan Forsman after three rounds of the $200,000 Spalding Invitational golf tournament. Norris birdied the last three holes on the Carmel Valley Golf and Country Club course for his third consecutive score under 70, giving him a 54-hole total of 201. Forsman had a 4- under 68 at Del Monte, another of the three courses used in the non-tour event, and had a 203 total. Norris, the California native who has won $295,000 in five seasons on the PGA Tour, birdied the closing holes by chipping in from 40 feet and sinking putts from 25 and 50 feet. Today's final round will be played on Pebble Beach, the oceanside course blessed by unusually calm weather on Thursday and Friday. Rain and strong winds arrived Saturday. Norris spoke for those golfers lucky enough to be away from Pebble on Saturday when he said, "I figured we had the best of it, so the weather was easy to take." Forsman said, "The golf gods were upset about all those low scores at Pebble Beach the first two days." Norris had a 64, matching the official course record at Pebble, on Friday. Don Pooley also carded a 64 there Friday and was the second-round leader, one stroke ahead of Norris. Shocks edge Creighton OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Gus Santos scored 17 points to lead Wichita State to a 59-57 Missouri Valley Conference victory over Creighton Saturday night. Creighton outscored Wichita State 11-4 in the final four minutes of the first half to take a 25-23 lead at intermission. The Bluejays extended the lead to 33-23 early in the second half before Wichita State scored 10 unanswered points to tie the contest. The Shockers went ahead with 4:38 remaining and held off Creighton down the stretch to improve their record to 8-3. Also in double figures for the Shockers were John Askew with 11 points and Sasha Radunovich with 10. Gary Swain led Creighton, 4-6, with 19 points and Reggie Morris added 16.

Eddie fuels K-State past North Texas State From staff reports DENTON, Texas — Benny Green and Norris Coleman were the scoring leaders, but Kansas State head coach Jack Hartman credited Colby Community College transfer Percy Eddie with spurring the Wildcats to a 57-53 victory over the North Texas State Eagles Saturday night. Eddie, who had played earlier in the game, reentered the non- conference contest with 11:49 remaining in the second half and K- State trailing by seven points (41- _,_,. 34). Eddlc The 6-7 junior drilled in a 10-footer from the baseline at the 10:52 mark and followed with another two- pointer a short time later to close the gap to 41-38. After a North Texas State basket, Eddie scored another field goal for six points in less than 90 seconds. Green followed with back- to-back buckets and the Wildcats were back in the game for good. "Eddie came in and thrashed around. He did something," Hartman said. "He was active and meaningful in the game." Kansas State, which improved to 10-3 overall, finally took the lead for the first time since leading 2-0 when Coleman dropped in a 15-foot bank shot to give the Wildcats a 54-53 advantage with 3:13 remaining. After Tony Worrell of North Texas State missed a pair of free throws with 2:57 remaining, K-State's Joe Wright dropped in l-of-2 charities at the 2:27 mark to make it a 55-53 game. After a missed shot by each team, North Texas State had the ball in the final seconds, but Glenroy Ferguson put up an ill-advised attempt from the top of the key with 12 seconds remaining. Ron Meyer of KSU grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 10 seconds left. The 6-9 sophomore drilled in both free throws to put the game away. "We finally got some movement and became more active in the second half," Hartman said of his team's comeback. "We started to compete better at the end of the game, but we were totally inactive for most of the game." Green, a freshman guard, paced the Wildcats with 16 points and Coleman added 15. Ferguson paced North Texas State, now 4-7, with 15 and Worrell added 12. Kansas State's next game is Monday night at home against Wichita State.
