THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday, December 1, 1992 i-n In Hoops, REL Falls RSS Downs Indians For Second Time By VALERIE ROBERTSON The Ross S. Sterling cagers took care of Port Neches-Groves, 64-37, in an encore performance Tuesday night in the Winnie Brown gymnasium. Although the Rangers disposed of the Indians, 73-37, in the first round of the Lee College Classic, the victory did not come as easy the second time around. The Rangers got off to a sluggish start, allowing Port Neches to jump out to a 4-0 lead before Ervin Barnetl hit two buckets to tie the score and Greg Vincent hit a 12-footer from the left side of the key to give the Rangers the lead with three minutes and 20 seconds left in the first quarter. Sterling ended the first quarter with a 15-6 lead compared to a 16-4 lead in their first meeting. ''There was a lack of adrenalin," said Coach Woody Walker. "We were just not aggressive or as fired up. That's a result of the tournament. We had four hard games. "When you beat a team like this it helps you realize that because you beat them once it doesn't mean you will a second time," Walker added. Stephone Leaks opened the second quarter by hilling three baskets within the first two minutes, but two fouls by the Rangers allowed the Indians to close the gap to 21-14 by scoring on both the baskets and free throws. But the Rangers ended the half with a 36-16 lead after Greg Vincent stole the ball and scored on a layup, then hil three outside shots from the right corner and added an additional point at the free- throw line. Casey Alfred added two when he hit both of his shots at the free-throw line with two seconds left in the half. "If Vincent hadn't had a hot hand, we would have had problems," said Walker. "He scored over half of the points in the first half." Vincent, who was the leading scorer in the game, scored 19 of his 21 points in the first half, with 13 of them coming in the second quarter. "We just didn't play any defense. It's been one of our problems, but it was much worse tonight," Walker said. "We didn't do a very good job on the halfcourt press, but we started playing better in the second half." Sterling limited Port Neches to seven points in the third quarter to widen the gap to 52-23, but the fourth quarter was much closer as ti.e Indians scored 14 points to the Rangers' 12. Donald Forbes and Wayne Tubbs utilized their outside shooting skills, with Tubbs hitting two shots from the right side of the free-throw line to pave the way in the final quarter. Brian Neskora scored 12 points and Malcolm Broussard added 10 points to lead the junior varsity to a 55-34 victory over Port Neches- Groves. The sophomore team defeated Houston Smiiey 35-23. The leading scorers were Arnold Wyche with 17 points and Bryan Gesford with 10 points. Port Neches-Groves (37) l.rBl.-uu- 1 'j I) ir2. UVMbrook 6 2-2 1 H. Sevens 1 ]-:! I <.

Clay Leads LC Over winners. 74-73 BURNEY YOUNG battles Port Neches-Groves' Jim Lindner for a rebound Tuesday night. The Rangers defeated the Indians for the second time in less than a week, 64-37. Young scored six points in the win. (Sun Sports Photo by Angle Bracey) By DAVE SORTER LUFKIN (Sp) — Carl Clay picked the most opportune time to break out of his season-long scoring slump. The O-foot-5 Lee College sophomore from Houston, who is the only returning starter for the Rebels this year, had averaged but 8.7 points per game through the early part of the season. During the first half of Tuesday night's game at Angelina, he continued that pace, scoring but four tallies. But Clay exploded after half time, netting 17 points and blocking three shots, one to protect a three-point lead with 30 seconds left, to lead the Rebels to a 74-73 victory over the Roadrunners. Despite Clay's heroics, the Rebels still weren't assured of the win until the final buzzer. Steve Daniels missed the front end of a one-and-one with 26 seconds left, and Otho Fields popped from IB feet to bring Angelina within one witli 11 seconds remaining. Six seconds later, Walton Montet missed his first shot of a bonus try and Kirk Simple managed to get down the floor for what looked like an easy five- footer that would give Angelina a victory. But he only got four of the five feet needed, and the buzzer sounded. "I thought that was going in," said LC Coach Mike Hefley. "Here we had our two best free- throw shooters {Daniels and Montet) at the line and I relaxed. Then they end up missing the darn things." It was a night of battling for the Rebels. LC had come back from a 10-point deficit in the first half to trail, 36-34, at halftime. Angelina mado noises like it was going to run away with it in the second half, but then Clay started showing his true colors.
