Sat., Mirch U, mi GREELEV (Colo.) TRIBUNE 17 Holy Family ends UHS title hopes, 54-48 ByTOMBARBOUK Tribune Sports Write! DENVER - Whal was bread and butter all year turned to sour milk for University High Friday in the Class AA semifinals against Holy Family. The Tigers used an effective full-court press in the second quarter, a favorite weapon of the Bulldogs all year long, to erase an early UHS lead and advance to tonight's 8 p.m. championship final as a result of a 54-48 victory. The championship game will Cherry mark the fourth meeting this season between Holy Family and lop-ranked, unbeaten Denver Christian. The Crusaders have won all three previous battles and earned their place in tonight's final with a hard fought 61-60 victory over Moffat County Friday. University gels a shot at the third place today in a 1:30 p.m. meeting with Moffat County at McNichols Arena. "1 never thought we'd be beat by a full-court press," said a disappointed University coach Jim Smith after the contest. "We didn't maintain the poise we showed all year long." That Holy Family pressure Smith referred to was directly responsible for 34 University turnovers, 20 coming in Ihe first half as Holy Family battled back from an early six-point deficit to lake a 30-26 intermission lead. While Holy Family was fashioning its halftime lead, University was struggling through a 37 per cent shooting performance for the first 16 minutes. But the worst was yet to come. After hitting just nine of 24 first-half field goals attempts, the Bulldogs clicked on only 10 of 32 in the second half to end Ihe night with a dismal 33.9 per cent. If University's shooting performance wasn't bad enough, Holy Family hit only 31 per cent, but the Tigers scored on numerous layups off fast breaks and steals throughout the contest to post the victory. "It was just one of those nights," said Smith. "We couldn't buy a basket. We couldn't make a break. We couldn't force a break." University got all Ihe early breaks with Delmar Brewer, Brennen Heinert and Dennis Jelden providing the early spark for a 9-3 lead. But Holy Family maintained the poise Smith claimed his Bulldogs didn't have to inch back slowly and close within three, 15-12, at the end of the quarter. Holy Family finally took the lead, 22-21, on a Matt Golesh field goal with 3:07 left in the half. Before the intermission, the Tigers managed to stretch the lead to as much as seven and finally settled for Ihe four- point intermission advantage. University managed to come back to knot the score twice early in the third quarter, but Holy Family once again capitalized on some sloppy bulldog passing and a quick paced running game to push University into the consolation bracket. The loss dropped University to 21-3 for the year while Moffat County, today's opponent, is 166 going into today's third place game.
