I'he LC mentor pointed out that in the St. Phillip's game, the Kebels got their shots but nothing would go in for them. I'he game paraded the two team's meeting in Bay town in January. But, instead of LC catching up after St. Phillip's got oil to a fiol start, this time me winners kept gelling hotter while the Hebels froze stiff. Saturday night's victor is the last team that Ihe Rebs have beaten which was back on Jan. 1H. The team that started the Hed and Gray cagers on their present loss sireak, San Jacinlo, will most likely keep the sireak going Tuesday night. The Havens have just one toss Uus season and as comparison, clobbered St. Phillip's in San Antonio Friday night by some (MJ points. Therefore, things look even darker for the LC crew. With their record slipping to i;t-la, chances ol a winning reason are starting to look slim.

FREEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer Clutch-playing Texas A&M risks its unblemished Southwest Conference basketball record at Waco Tuesday night against the dangerous Baylor Bears and ook for Aggie coach Shelby Metcalf to be wearing his secret weapon. Kidded almost to the point of embarrassment by his players, Metcalf has been wearing the same flashy outfit—part of it from Ireland—for luck. The Aggies have won three of their five SWC games by a ;x>int and came on strong to defeat Texas 65-57 Saturday in Austin in a crucial match. 'Well, I started wearing this maroon plaid coat and a maroon tie that was bought in Ireland," Metcalf laughs, "but what really cracks the boys up is my gray flannel slacks. They keep telling me they look like lev is. 'But I'm going to keep on wearing it. There's one thing about it. It's the type of rig that wouldn't make you care if they threw you in the shower. On the serious side, Metcalf said A&M will have to play "one of our best ball games, to stay with them. Baylor plays real good defense. They were well disciplined and have some good athletes. That Tommy Bowman is a real leaper and can give you a tough time on the boards." He said he was proud of the way his team has been playing on the road but said, "It's too early in the race to get excited. I can stand these close games just as long as we win." Metcalf declined an invitation to predict the winning record but said "An 11-3 would be a pretty good season. We're just playing them one at a time." Baylor is 4-1 following a hectic 71-68 victory over Rice Saturday. Ronnie Peret, AfcM's 6-foot-9 muscle man, scored 26 points and hauled in 10 rebounds to pace s the Aggies, 'It was one of Ronnie's finest games," Metcalf said. "We were real fortunate to get the ball inside to him and Billy Bob Barnett." While all eyes will be on Waco Tuesday night, Texas Tech (2-3) will be at Arkansas (1-4). Texas Christian (1-5) will be at Sam Houston State for a non-conference game. The scrappy Southern Methodist Mustangs, in the thick of the fight with a 4-2 record don't play until Saturday night when they host Arkansas. Texas (3-2) travels to Houston to play Rice (1-4) Wednesday night in another important game.
