Wire Services A Portland Ore sportscaster has apologized for referring to Loyola Marymount’s “helter-skelter heart-attack” basketball offense The remark by KGW-TV sportscaster Eric Johnson directed at a team mourning the death of player Hank Gathers from heart disease drew calls from upset viewers a station executive said “It was certainly was an unfortunate choice of adjectives” Johnson said "I felt horrible and I still do” Johnson was reporting Wednesday on Loyola Marymount’s NCAA regional semifinal game Friday with Alabama when he referred to the team’s offense “If you saw the Lions run Michigan into the ground then you were probably having a hard time seeing anybody stopping their helter-skelter heart-attack offense” Johnson said during a 5 pm broadcast McGuire gets ‘compliment’ from Knight Indiana basketball Coach Bobby Knight is always obliging with an opinion and here are a few samples in a recent interview: On Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls: “He’s head and shoulders above anyone else who ever played the game” H On Notre Dame Coach Digger Phelps: “He’s a good friend of mine and I’m his only friend” On TV analyst Al McGuire: “He was an outstanding coach because he had a way of getting people to do things But he knows nothing about basketball” And you can quote me In the past 10 years the Lakers have failed to reach the NBA Finals only twice Both times they were knocked out by Houston a possible first-round opponent this season “They play up-tempo which we like” Rockets guard Sleepy Floyd said “But the big thing is LA doesn’t have a center who can match up with Akeem Olajuwon” D Herb Brooks former Olympic and National Hockey League coach: “Coaching is like being a king — it prepares you for nothing” Hawks forward Dominique Wilkins scoffing at claims that Larry Bird is over the hill: “Bird is still the only one who actually gives me a headache” 76ers forward Charles Barkley: “New York is my kind of town because I have a gun" TV BEST BET NCAA

scored 25 points including six of Virginia’s nine in overtime and the Cavaliers snapped a five-game losing streak to defending champion Tennessee with a 79-75 victory over the Vols in Saturday’s NCAA East Region championship at Norfolk Va The Cavaliers (29-5) who had been knocked out of the last three NCAA tournaments by Tennessee earned their first trip to the Final Four Virginia led 68-63 with 1:34 left in regulation and 70-67 with 40 seconds to go But Tonya Edwards made the first of two free throws with 27 seconds left and Daedra Charles rebounded the second and scored on a layup that made it 70-70 with 23 seconds to play In overtime the Vols (27-6) scored first on a free throw by Munoz UM top Clemson Washington St beats FIU By BARRY JACKSON Herald Writer He goes by the name Munoz but frankly these days he’s looking more like a guy named Fernandez The University of Miami’s newest pitching machine Oscar Munoz again conjured images of former ace Alex Fernandez as he propelled the fourth-ranked Hurricanes to a 2-1 victory over Clemson — and a three-game sweep of the Tigers — before 3524 spectators at Mark Light Stadium On a chilly Saturday evening Munoz generated plenty of heat With an explosive fastball and sharp slider he struck out a career-high 12 batters After Orlando Palmeiro’s RBI hit in the fourth — an infield single — Munoz sustained a 2-1 lead for the duration His only punishment was an unearned run in the second inning achieved on consecutive errors by Mike Tosar and Charles Johnson With only one career start before February Munoz is now 8-0 And deflecting the accolades “I never envisioned this happening realistically” he said “But I don’t think of myself as the No 1 guy We’ve got three great starters on this team” The 12th-ranked Tigers (19-5) arrived in Miami with a nine-game winning streak a 330 team average and a lineup churning out an average of nine runs a game Greg Knowles held them to two runs Thursday Shawn Purdy neutralized them Friday and Munoz stifled them Saturday Munoz recorded strikeouts in every inning except the second He struck out two batters in the third fourth and fifth Munoz teased the Tigers throughout allowing seven hits and stranding nine runners But he walked only one — often a trouble spot — and stiffened with two outs recording strikeouts to close the seventh and eighth innings He pitched a flawless ninth capping it with a deep fly-out to right Since moving to the first spot in the rotation Munoz has thrived going 5-0 with a 161 earned-run average ”He shows me something new every start” UM Coach Ron Fraser said Miami (27-5) will conclude this 14-game home stand Wednesday against Northeastern before heading north to meet No 3 Wichita State Friday in the Minnesota Tournament Bell out Reserve outfielder

of North Carolina-Charlotte hit six free throws in the last 18 seconds to hold off the University of Miami 82-80 Saturday night in the third-place game of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament The 49ers took the lead for good 76-75 on Pam Gorham's layup off a steal by twin sister Phyllis Gorham with 1:01 remaining Two different times Miami had chances to retake the lead but guard Elaine Harlow failed to connect on medium-range jumpers After that the 49ers paraded to the free-throw line and hit the front end of three one-and-ones to secure the victory at the Cal Farley Coliseum Mia Nance hit four free throws the last with 13 seconds left to give UNCC an 80-75 lead Just before Nance’s free throws the Hurricane had a chance to tie the score but Nanci Clayton couldn’t hold a halfcourt inbound pass Nance picked up the basketball and was fouled by Harlow But it wasn’t the turnover that irked Miami Coach Feme Labati but her team’s lack of defense “We had to stop them on defense and we just didn’t do a good job of that all night” she said “Eighty-two points — we haven't played that kind of ball all year We just didn’t stop them at all and then we got into a situation where we had to foul them” The loss which ended Miami's season at 25-6 overshadowed the 36 points from Frances Savage The 5-9 junior had 20 points in the first half to keep the Canes close and ended her scoring barrage with a long three-pointer at the buzzer “What can you say about her -she’s a great basketball player” said UNC Coach Ed Baldwin whose team finished at 24-8 Miami trailed nearly all the first half but rallied by some hot three-point shooting midway through the second half UM hit five consecutive three-pointers three by Harlow Kentucky which defeated UM 80-68 in the semis defeated Toledo (Ohio) 85-76 for the NIT title In earlier action at the 22nd Annual NWIT Maine defeated Wyoming 68-48 for seventh place and Fresno State edged Illinois State 73-72 for fifth The championship
