Dave Bliss, who has spent the last eight' years at Southern Methodist University, signed a 5-year contract on i Wednesday to succeed Gary Colson ; as basketball coach at the University of New Mexico. Colson resigned under pressure I on April 26 after an eight-year stint ;atUNM. The financial terms of the 5-year ! contract package still are being ne-; gotiated, New Mexico Athletic Di- rector John Koenig said. ! Bliss, who at one point in New , Mexico's search for a new coach was no better than No. 3 on the ! list, took the job after Purdue's ; Gene Keady and Indiana's Bob Knight both turned down the Lo-' bos. . "I'm glad I was the one that persevered and outlasted everyone else," Bliss said during a news conference. ; . Bliss, 44, arrived in Albuquerque on Tuesday night and, after meeting with Koenig and the school's athletic council, accepted the job. Bliss showed up at the news conference wearing the same tennis shoes and blue sport coat he wore when he arrived in town. With his suitcases still somewhere between Dallas and Albuquerque, Bliss had to borrow a shirt from Koenig for the news conference. "I am thrilled to be here," said Bliss, who is leaving a solid program at SMU that saw the Mus-' tangs go 28-7 en route to the Southwest Conference title and an NCAA Tournament berth. Bliss had a 142-101 record at SMU and has a career mark of 219-163 including the five seasons at Oklahoma. Thompson begins task of selecting U.S. team ASSOCIATED PRESS COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. John Thompson began on Wednesday the toughest part of his tenure as coach of the 1988 U.S. men's Olympic basketball team. The six-day Trials to select the team got under way with a media session followed by the first practice for the 92 players at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. "I've been pleased with what has occurred so far but this will be the most difficult part of the process so far," Thompson said. "I respect the fact that these kids did come. That is very important to me. Not to make the team is not a disgrace." Thirteen of the original players invited did not attend the Trials. Five Jarvis Basnight of Nevada-Las Vegas, Mookie Blaylock of Oklahoma, Pervis Ellison of Louisville, Jeff Lebo of North Carolina and Charles Shackleford of North Carolina State cited injuries as reasons for not attending. Others, such as Duane Ferrell of Georgia Tech and Gary Grant of Michigan, said academic loads prevented their attending. Thompson said he will bring 40 players to Denver for a doublehead-er scrimmage Sunday at McNichols Arena. Twenty will be asked to a July camp at Georgetown from which the final 12-man roster for the Olympic Games at Seoul, South Korea, will be decided. Among those expected to supply the bulk is David Robinson, the 1987 College Player of the Year at Navy and the NBA's No. 1 draft choice. Robinson, currently serving a military commitment, hasn't played at this level of competition since he started for the United States team that won a silver medal in the Pan Am Games last August. FSU hammers Louisville, 18-4, in Metro tournament ' COLLEGES' " By Rodney Campbell S&V7IMB. CORRESPONDENT TALLAHASSEE Florida State, with an 18-4 rout of Louisville, joined Southern Mississippi and Virginia Tech as first-round winners Wednesday in the Metro Conference Tournament at Dick Howser Stadium. Louisville hasn't won a Metro Conference Tournament game since 1983. The Seminoles (44.-16-1) will play Virginia Tech (40-18), an 8-1 winner over Cincinnati, at 3 p.m. today in the winners' bracket Southern Miss (35-24), an 11-4 winner over Memphis State, and top-seeded South Carolina play at 7:30. In a losers' bracket contest, Louisville (18-34) faces Cincinnati (27-20). "This was a big game for us," FSU Coach Mike Martin said. "We're playing good baseball right now." The Seminoles, winners of the r -- I - Metro the last five years, jumped out to a 64 lead in the third inning before a crowd of 3,311. Barry Blackwell's groundout to short scored Edwin Alicea in the first. Three hits, the highlight a double by Clyde Keller, produced the three runs in the second. Louisville jumped all over freshman David Sorokowski in the third. The Cardinals batted around in the third, using five hits to get four runs and tie the score, 44. Sorokowski also walked two batters. With two outs in the inning, he was replaced by the winning pitcher Bret Davis (64). Louisville managed only three hits the rest of the game. "My game is throwing strikes," Davis said. "If I do that, I'm okay." FSU combined for 10 runs in the sixth and seventh innings. Blackwell capped off the seventh-inning scoring with a three-run homer. Donny Erickson's two-run homer in the eighth ended the scoring. COMPILED FROM WIRE REPORTS INGLEWOOD, Calif. Michael Cooper sank an 18-foot jumper with 7 seconds left Tuesday night, and James Worthy preserved the victory with a steal and foul shot 2 seconds later, lifting the Los Angeles Lakers to a 111-109 triumph and a 3-2 edge in their Western Conference semifinal series with the Utah Jazz. "This would have to be the biggest shot of his career for me," Cooper said. "I'm a professional, I'm supposed to hit that shot." The defending NBA champions can secure a spot in the conference final for the seventh consecutive year with a victory tonight at the Salt Palace. If necessary, a Game 7 would take place Saturday afternoon at the Forum. Worthy scored to give Los Angeles a 108-107 lead with 31 seconds to play, but Thurl Bailey answered for Utah with a baseline jumper with 12 seconds left. After a timeout and Cooper's basket from near the top of the key, Worthy then intercepted an inbounds pass from Marc Iavaroni intended for Bailey and was fouled. He hit the first of two free throws for the game's final point. The Jazz were unable to get off a final shot John Stockton tied Johnson's playoff record with 24 assists. "The assist record doesn't mean anything when you don't win," Stockton said. "I wasn't even tired and I wasn't aware I didn't come out of the game." Having blown all of a 10-point lead with 11 minutes left, the Lakers went ahead, 105-104, with 2:29 left on Johnson's layup, then received a foul shot 29 seconds later from Byron Scott. Worthy finished with 27 points for the Lakers. Bailey led the Jazz with 28. THF.NRA MORE DECLARATIONS FORMER MEMPHIS State teammates Marvin Alexander and Sylvester Gray, who lost their college eligibility for dealing with a sports agent were among 12 underclassmen who declared themselves eligible for next month's NBA draft, the NBA announced Wednesday. Lloyd Daniels, a former New York high school star who enrolled briefly at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas in 1987 but never played, also joined the list He played in the Continental Basketball Association last season. Others applying for early entry: Michael Jones of Auburn, Dwayne Lewis of Marshall, Hernan Montenegro of Louisiana State and Eddie Pope of Southern Mississippi. Those who previously announced: Rex Chapman of Kentucky, Tito Horford of Miami, Jerome Lane of Pittsburgh, Charles Shackleford of North Carolina State and Rod Strickland of DePaul. The draft is June 28. ANOTHER HONOR DALLAS MAVERICKS forward Roy Tarpley received the Sixth Man Award for outstanding contributions by a reserve. Tarpley, in his second NBA season, averaged 11.8 rebounds and 13.5 points per game. He received 67 votes from an 80-per-son media panel Utah's Thurl Bailey received the other 13 votes. Dallas Coach John MacLeod: "I thought early in the year that Roy would be a candidate. And the more I saw of him, the more convinced I became that he's the logical choice. When he comes in, he impacts the game. He runs the floor, rebounds, blocks shots I like what he does." D INJURY UPDATE THE DENVER Nuggets, trailing 3-2 in their Western Conference semifinal series, will be playing short-handed for the third consecutive game tonight in Dallas. Denver will be without guard Lafayette Lever (strained knee) and possibly without forward Jay Vincent, its valuable sixth man. Lever was scheduled to fly to Los Angeles late Wednesday night and consult a specialist Vincent, sidelined by a pulled calf muscle, was listed as questionable.
