From Page 1-D) the first four points of the second stanza, Clay tipped in an offensive rebound, then after another Angelina hoop, he popped one from the line. After the Runners scored again, he swished from 15 to bring the Rebels within four. After Jack Smith, scored to bring the Rebels within two, Clay blocked the first of his shots, then stole the ball and seconds later tied the game by converting an offensive rebound. After two Runner free throws, Clay hit from the corner to equal the score again. Two minutes later, with the game tied at 52, Clay tipped in another offensive board, and was fouled by John Mouton in the process. Three-point play, three-point lead. "It's about time I came out of that slump," Clay said after the game. "I just felt comfortable out there tonight. I relaxed." Perhaps his biggest play came in the waning moments of the contest. After Clay hit a pair of free throws to give the Rebels a 74-71 lead with 44 seconds left, Runner Mitch Ferguson went up for a shot. But Clay forcefully rejected it, ultimately sealing the victory. "We were saying in the huddle (during an Angelina time out) 'don't let them have a three-point play,' " Clay explained. "So if we were going to go after the shot, we had to go after it hard, and not let it go in." "I think this is the first time we've beat them up here in about 10 years," Hefley said. At first, it seemed like the Roadrunners' home streak against the Rebels would continue. Using the hot shooting of Ferguson and taking advantage of poor Rebel rebounding, Angelina took a 24-14 lead after the first 10 minutes. Ferguson scored 10 of the Runners' first 12 points, and after that, Simple dominated the offensive boards, tipping in two of his teammates' missed shots, with Fields converting another. The Rebels then proved they can shoot from outside, too, as they reeled off a 12-polnt string to take a brief, 26-24, lead. Daniels hit two of those bombs, with Donny Andrews taking an offensive rebound all the way to the corner, and popping from there. Clay started to show he would be keen In the clutch by giving the Rebels ^.CHESTER ROGERS Sun Outdoor Guide Winds Rock Boats Trinity Bay — Schoolie sized specs searmed Dow's Reef, Beazley's and Fisher's Reef and a lot of fishermen limited Monday before strong winds rocked the boats too much. Bait supplies were adequate but they were small. Crawley's sold off the boat but caught enough to stock the tanks for the next day. Pro fishermen like Payton Shelton filled ice chests with specs and reds while the going was good. The discharge area was muddied up by flood waters pouring out of the Trinity River now bank full below Liberty. Galveston — Drum, whiting and sand trout filled stringers at the beach piers again. With 60 degree water temperature good fishing is expected to continue at the piers for the next few days. Lake Livingston — Points and islands held a few black bass to four pounds for the tireless fishermen who used crank baits, spinners and worms to take the big ones off the mos and hydrilla beds. Some boatmen trolling caught up to 100 white bass on the old river beds. Twelve gates are open on the dam pouring 15,000 gallons of water into the Trinity River. Lake Conroe — Chrone rattletrap lures dragged across the hydrilla beds were taking black bass to four pounds. Lake Houston — Water is pouring over the dam, and flooding the San Jacinto River all the way to Lynchburg. Wind, water and tides — Southerly winds will be from 10 to 15 mph. Temperature range will be from the upper 50s to the low 70s. Trinity and Galveston bays will be choppy. Offshore wave heights will be two to four feet. Galveston beach water temperature is 60 degrees. Wednesday, Galveston beach high tides will be at 2:39 a.m. and 7:07 p.m. Low tide will beat 10:48 a.m. the lead on a pair of free throws aftev he was fouled grabbing an offensive rebound. After the two teams traded buckets, Angelina's Mike Gafford took over. The Rebel zone had started to key on Ferguson, but left Gafford open, and he hit six of the Runners' next eight points. Daniels hit two shots and Todd Montiero one to bring the Rebels to within two at intermission. Tuesday's was the first game in which Hefley started with a zone defense, and he was pleased for the most part. However, he mused over the Rebels' failure to contain Gafford when he started getting hot. "All in all the zone did pretty good," Hefley said. "But we had to go to a man-to-man at the last. I was afraid they would hold the ball on us. "But they have got to learn real quick who the hot guy is and ride his tail. They got on No. 10 (Ferguson) but No. 24 (Gafford) hits a couple and they've got to get on him." Ferguson ended up scoring two more points after his early spree. Rebounding hurt the Rebels in the early going, with Andrews, who is averaging 17 boards a game grabbing only nine Tuesday, tied with Clay for team-high honors. Hefley admitted that, in the first half at least, the board work was subpar, but added "We shot 50 percent in the first half and they shot 50, so there weren't that many rebounds to give." Again, the Rebels did not give the ball away much, turning it over but 12 times and committing only 15 fouls. LC shot 28-of-54 from the field and a brilliant 18-of- 23 from the line, the last three of those misses coming on front ends of late one-and-ones. Clay led the Rebel scoring with 21 points, while Andrews netted 16. Gafford scored 16 for Angelina.

By JEFF SNOOK Charlie Brown gives credit where credit is due. And the 6-foot-2 senior guard knows who deserves the credit for the recent success of the Robert E. Lee basketball team. "Coach (Jim) Lebetter is a real good coach," Brown said Tuesday, before the Ganders' 70-58 loss to Port Arthur Jefferson. "He knows his basketball and he is well organized. He not only likes you as a player, but he likes you as a person.'' Last year in his first season with REL, Ledbetter coached the Ganders to their first winning season in seven years. Lee finished 17-12 overall and 10-6 in District 23-5A, good enough for third place. The Ganders, led by Brown, have continued the success that was initiated last season by winning four of their first six games. Included in the start is a third-place finish and a 3-1 record in the Lee College Classic. "I expected us to do real well in the Lee College Tournament," Brown said. "But I didn't think I would do as well as I did." Brown averaged 23.5 points per game in the tourney, to raise his season average to 21.2. He scored 27 points in the 75-65 win over crosstown rival Ross S. Sterling. Brown likes what he see., from this edition of the Ganders and he thinks the team will improve as the season advances. "The key for us is fundamentals and execution," he said. "We have won our first four that way and we need to keep it up. And we are doing a pretty good job from the foul line." There are a few areas in which the Ganders need to improve, according to Brown. "We need to rebound a little better," he said. "And I think we need to work the ball inside a litUe more." The district race begins Jan. 4 when Lee takes on last season's runner-up, South Houston. Although Pasadena Rayburn is the favorite to win the crown, Brown sees the Ganders in the thick of things. "I think we have a real good shot at the district," he said. "Rayburn is probably the favorite right now, but if we keep playing the way we are. . . "As long as we believe in ourselves, we'll go pretty far," he added. "The whole team is pretty close and we get along well together, so that helps too." On the court, Brown possesses the leadership qualities that Ledbetter likes in a basketball player. "Charlie has that court-sense that you look for," Ledbetter said. "He is real cool and he keeps his poise real well. He is a leade* 1 ." "Coach Ledbetter keeps telling me that I need to be a team leader," Brown said with a smile. "Right now I don't think I am, but I hope to be before the end of the season." Following graduation, Brown hopes to continue his basketball career in a junior college program. But nothing is further from his mind at the moment. "Yeah, that's a long way off for me," he said. "I'll think about it after this season, but first. . " His voice trailed off and he smiled, apparently thinking of the success that is still to come for the Ganders. Ball Divers Beat Ganders The Robert E. Lee swim team found out just how valuable divers could be Tuesday night. In a dual meet with Galveston Ball, the boys team was edged by Ball, 62-59 and the girl's team tied, 57-57.
