Forward Bill Nelson scored 26 points and grabbed
11 rebounds to lead the Eagles to a 103-91 victory
over the UT-Arlington Mavericks Monday.
The win lifted the Eagles to a 8-8 record and the
first place spot in the Southland Conference. NT is
2-0 in conference play and is the only unbeaten team
in SLC play.
It was NT's first 100-point game of the season.
Nelson was ecstatic about his 26-point, 11-rebound
game. "1 could do it every night," he said.
"We're coming together as a team. We just exe-
cuted a little better than we did last week," Nelson
said. "When our guards hit the jump shot, that shifted
the defense to them and opened up the middle for
NT dominated the game with snappy passes and
good ball control. Coach Tommy Newman said,
"Whenever you lose a seven-footer, you have to
compromise. We could have gone with a bigger line-
up, but we decided to go with quickness."
One play that exemplified the Eagles' quickness
occured with four minutes left and NT trailing 34-32.
Guard Lawrence Hudson received a pass at the
half-court line between two Maverick defenders. The
defenders tried to steal the ball from Hudson, but he
bounced the ball between his legs, twisted and drib-
bled down court. Hudson dribbled behind his back,
through his legs and beneath the waving arms of the
three remaining UTA defenders to tie the score with
Hudson finished with 15 points. Three other Eagles
scored in double figures: Javan Dupree, with 18 points
and seven rebounds; Andre Boutte, with 17 points
and six rebounds; and Robert Lewis, with 10 points
and eight rebounds.
The Mavericks, 4-11, were led by guard Charles
Harris, who scored 34 points, and center Sam Norton,
who scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. The
three highest Maverick scorers after Harris and Norton
scored 6 points each.
"Our game plan was to keep Norton and Harris
below their averages," Newman said. Norton aver-
ages 19.7 points per game; Harris averages 10.5.
"That game plan went out the window one min-
ute into the game when Harris drove to the baseline
and got a three-point play."
Newman said the team must work more on defense,
because, he said, there are strong defensive teams in
the SLC. He said he is encouraged by the team's
"Our mental approach to the game is much better
than it was a week ago against Pan American," he
NT breaks Mavericks |Team prepares for golf season
Rosey Bartlett, NT women's golf coach,
said she is looking forward to the spring
semester as the team prepares for its first
tournament Jan. 29-31 at Beaumont in the
Lamar University Invitational.
Bartlett's coaching career began at NT
in September of 1983 and she coached the
women's golf team in three tournaments dur-
ing the fall semester. "The team is really
good this semester. The girls are used to
me and 1 am used to them," Bartlett said.
"Our number one player consistently is
Christa Teno from Canada. She had two
top 10 finishes out of three tournaments.
Christa is a good player as long as she keeps
working," Bartlett said.
Bartlett said all of the women on the team
have the potential to play good golf. The
traveling squad last semester consisted of
Teno, Christina Wahlen, Ingrid Norval,
Maryann Crow and Tracy Keller.
Lisa Lantz has rejoined the team this
semester and Jenny Price is new to the team
this semester. Bartlett said five players get
to compete in tournaments and the best four
out of five individual scores count in the
Bartlett said she is very optimistic and
has good thoughts about the season. "As a
team, they placed second last year in the
LSU Invitational in Baton Rouge, La., and
Christina Wahlen won the LSU tournament
last year over Christa (Teno)."
