Monday, March 18,1985/The Battalion/Page 9 ‘Out-of-town’ Brown hindered A&M in NIT By CHAREAN WILLIAMS and BRANDON BERRY Battalion Sports Staff The biggest news from the Texas A&M basketball headquarters dur ing the past week wasn’t that the Ag gies beat TCU on Todd Holloway’s fall away jump shot at the buzzer. It wasn’t that A&M lost to Texas Tech in the Southwest Conference Tour nament semifinals. And it wasn’t that A&M lost to New Mexico in the first round of the National Invitatio nal Tournament. The biggest news happened the day before the Aggies were, to meet the Lobos in Albquerque. On March 11, A&M’s leading scorer, “Down town” Kenny Brown, announced he wanted “Out-of-town” and quit the team. Brown told The Bryan Eagle that several things caused him to quit the team out of frustration. “It was a combination of things,” Brown said last week. “Maybe I ex pected too much out of everybody else on the team, maybe I expected too much from myself. I just felt like we could’ve done better this year if we were closer as a team. “I don’t think I hurt the team. I just think I could’ve helped more. I don’t want to mention any names, but there were some things going on during games between other play ers. I wasn’t as big a part of the of fense as I was earner.” Brown left school and headed home to Memphis, Tenn., saying he would not transfer to another school. “The people are friendly here, but I’m going to go back to Memphis for awhile and see what comes up,” Brown said. “As far as A&M, no. I don’t want to be here. I’m leaving.” Without Brown’s average of 17.4 points per game, A&M was waxed by New Mexico 80-67 in the first round of the NIT. The Aggies received their NIT in vitation after dropping out of con tention for the SWC tournament ti tle two Saturdays ago in a 72-63 loss to eventual tourney champion Texas Tech. A&M forward Winston Crite scorched the Red Raiders for 24 points and 10 rebounds, but the Ag gies shot only 44 percent from the field and could never overcome near-perfect shooting performances from Tech guards Bubba Jennings and Phil Wallace. “You realize you weren’t watching an ordinary athlete out there,” said A&M Coach Shelby Metcalf of Crite, who made the All-SWC Tourna ment team. “And he’s just a sopho more. He’s capable of doing some amazing things out there.” The performances of Jennings and Wallace were just as amazing. Wallace hit 14 of 16 free throws and ended with a career-high 22 points. Jennings, who later that day received the SWC Player of the Year award, hit 9 of 11 shots from the field and led Tech with 23 points. “Different players have come through for us every game,” Jen nings said, “and today it was Phil Wallace from the line. “I think some people didn’t think we were a legitimate conference champion, so this tournament is just another proving ground for us.” The Red Raiders continued their lesson by defeating the Arkansas Ra- zorbacks 67-64 in the tournament fi nals. With the victory, the Red Raid ers gained an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, where they lost in the first round to Boston College by a shot at the buzzer, 58-56. SWC runners-up SMU and Ar kansas also received. bids to the NCAA Tournament,, where they both lost in the second round: the Hogs dropped a 68-65 decision to No. 3 St John’s and SMU lost 70-57 to the 17th-ranked Ramblers of Loyola University of Chicago. And the Aggies, who graduate no seniors from this year’s team, went to the NIT and lost. Without Kenny Brown. “I’m just very surprised because he gave us very little indication of wanting to quit the team,” Metcalf said. “We’ll just have to do our best without him.” And get back to the drawing board for next season.

A&M lost to eventual champion Texas Tech, but Crite made the SWC All-Tournament team. Associated Press Villanova, behind a solid perfor mance from Dwayne McClain, turned in the first upset of a major power in the NCAA Basketball Tournament Sunday, beating No. 2 Michigan 59-55. The victory over the Wolverines, which had been the No. 1 seed in the Southeast Region, put Villanova into the regional semifinals. The Wildcats, the eighth seed in the region, held a 30-26 halftime lead over Michigan, which finished the season at 26-4, but the Wolver ines scored the first nine points of the second half. McClain, a senior forward, hit three straight jumpers and Villa nova, 21-10, took the lead for good as the Wildcats coverted 25 of 31 free-throw attempts in the game. McClain made all four of his free throws and converted eight of 12 shots from the floor, winding up with 20 points. Villanova, which finished tied for third in the Big East Conference, will face Maryland, which beat Navy 64-59 Sunday, in the Southeast Re gional semifinal Friday at Birming ham, Ala.
