Netter adds college experience
for two years,” she said.
Sheila Summers, one at the top South
African professionals, has coached
Goldberg the past I0 years. “She was a
pretty good player herself,” Goldberg
said. “She won Wimbledon a couple of
times in mixed doubles.”
Goldberg said it was Summers who
really helped her develop her game,
although she didn’t do much to change
it. She said Summers taught her what
Goldberg called the correct and
orthodox way she plays.
"I am 22 now, and I got out of high
school when I was 18.” Goldberg said.
“For the past four years I have helped
Snelia teach, worked in a pro shop and
played tennis overseas.”
Although Goldberg traveled
throughout Europe, she said she spent a
lot of time in France. "I was there for
about three months and did really well,”
she said. “I won eight tournaments in
Goldberg came to Denton last
semester to visit her fellow teammate
Gwynn Sammel, also of Johannesburg.
Goldberg said she had already planned
to give herself only a year more to play
tennis seriously, until Sammel in-
troduced her to Coach A.G. Longoria
and she decided she would like to try
playing for NT.
“I really wanted to be able to work
with someone again on my game," she
said. “A.G. really has a good idea of
each player’s realistic capabilities.”
Goldberg is currently playing No. 5
on the team and beat out four players
from last semester’s squad to play in that
position. “After coming here and
watching the team play, I expected to be
in the top six,” Goldberg said. “I have
had a couple of real close matches with
the No. 3 and No. 4 players, so I hope to
After completing college, Goldberg
said, she would like to try the profes-
sional tennis tour again, probably
starting with the the Avon tournaments.
After that, she said, she would like to go
into a people-oriented business, so
coaching tennis remains a possibility. "I
don’t have a major yet,” she said, “but I
am leaning towards business.”
Although she said her game is pretty
solid, Goldberg said her mobility on the
court is her biggest problem.
“It is too early in the season for me to
talk of my feelings of how the team will
do,” she said, “but I do feel like we can
break the top 20 this year.
“I really like Denton. I like the laid-
back feeling everyone has where you can
do what you want and not worry about
what everyone else is doing.”
Basketball falls behind major sports
qualifying for AAU meet
NT Swim Club member Randy Ross,
Spring. I exas. sophomore, qualified for
the National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation national meet in Division III
but cannot compete in the meet because
NT athletic teams compete on the Divi-
sion I level, NT coach Lesliegh Franklin
Franklin said Ross’ time in the 100-
yard butterfly qualified him for the Divi-
sion III meet. An alternative, Franklin
said, is that he might try to qualify for
the upcoming Amateur Athletic Union
Senior National meet in Wisconsin.
“We will have a meet at Baylor near
the end of February, and he might try to
qualify in both the 100- and 200-yard
butterfly for the AAU senior meet,” she
Ross said, “I had planned to try to
qualify in the 100- and 200-yard butter-
fly. hut since I can’t compete in the Divi-
sion III meet, I might not."
Ross led the NT men’s swim team to a
second place finish last weekend in the
Austin College meet in Sherman, with
Rice University taking second. Ross
captured the best individual perfor-
mance hon oi.
The NT women’s team finished fourth
in the meet behind Rice, the University
of Arkansas at little Rock and Austin
College. “We just don’t have enough
women on the team," Franklin said.
"We need a lot more depth."
The club ends its season w ith a meet at
NT against West Texas State University
True, it was an all-star game, and all-
star games are infamous for being bor-
ing affairs, but the NBA’s version of its
showcasing of talent is usually a great
opportunity for the sport’s best players
to exhibit their skills in a more un-
Of course CBS sports deemed the
game an important event, but the
general flavor of the telecast was rather
bland and lacked the usual media hype
that accompanies major sports events.
This is an example of one of the
problems that has confronted the NBA
in recent years. The league has suffered
an identity crisis of sorts.

It took NT tennis team member Lisa
Goldberg, Johannesburg, South Africa,
freshman, about half a year after she
began playing tennis to really take her
tennis game seriously.
"I remember playing a game called
beachball, when my family would go on
vacation,” Goldberg said. “I just started
batting the hall up and down on my
racket until I could do it 300 times at
once. That is when my father began to
speak of things like tennis lessons.”
Goldberg said she played tennis in
high school but that there were no rank-
ings in South African high schools
similar to those in the United States. “I

As the last jump shot had fallen
through the nets in the National Basket-
ball Association’s 32nd All-Star game
this season, I sat trying to digest what
had just transpired.
What I had just seen was a contest
performed by some of the best basket-
ball players in the world. However,
television coverage did not come close to
reflecting the true spirit and importance
of the event.
the “Big Three" in American sports —
the others being the National Football
League and Major League Baseball.
The NBA, however, seems to lack the
intense following of the other two sports
for a myriad of reasons.
From preseason to the Super Bowl,
football dominates the American sports
scene. Every Sunday, throughout the
country, time stands still while millions
sit glued to their seats watching the
pigskin on their television sets.
The very nature of pro football and
the fact that teams play only one game a
week instead of several offers a clue to
why NFL games attract such intense in-
And then there is the Super Bowl.
Nothing in sports is really quite like it.
The media attention and interest of fans
that surrounds the NFL’s championship
game is so immense that it staggers the
mind. The event is more than a game, it
is a happening.
When the hot summer months roll
around, baseball assumes a firm grip on
the average sports fan. People love to go
to the ballpark, relax and watch the laid-
back game of baseball.
Even though each major league team
must withstand an unbelievably long
162-game schedule, interest remains fair-
ly strong throughout the season,
culminating with the tradition-rich
World Series in October.
Sandwiched between these two ever
popular sports is the NBA season. With
NBA teams enduring a torturous 82-
game schedule, which overlaps the
beginning of the NFL season in
September and baseball’s World Series,
fan interest is generally low at the begin-
ning of the season.
Because of these scheduling conflicts,
the start of the NBA season tends to
sneak up on a lot of fans, and media at-
tention is at a very low level.
Basketball doesn’t really step into the
limelight until mid-January.
The latest slap in the face to the NBA
is CBS’ new contract with the National
Collegiate Athletic Association to cover
college basketball games this season.
In reality, CBS has shifted its basket-
ball priorities over to college games,
with most of the NCAA telecasts placed
in the prime viewing hours on Saturday
and Sunday afternoons.
CBS' decision to step up its college
telecasts is only one in a series of bad
omens concerning pro basketball’s
future on the tube.
Pro basketball's declining popularity,
while it has not reached the ticket office
(NBA attendance is still very strong in
most areas), is a problem that the
management must collaborate on to
