Wed conwnce Metcalfs men begin season THE BATTALION Page 9 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1977 By PAUL ARNETT Battalion Sports Editor Last year was a mixture of plea sure and heartaehe for basketball coach Shelby Metcalf. The hear tache was fielding a team with no experience; their 14-14 record at the end of the season was the pleasure. This season should hold more pleasure than heartache for Metcalf. Tonight the Aggies face Angelo State in G. Rollie White Coliseum. It should be a one-sided game end ing in A&M’s favor. Metcalf has been preparing the Aggie basketball team for tonight’s game by holding three-hour daily workouts since the middle of Oc tober. The head coach says that his players have advanced right on schedule. “They’re getting the press down and have finally grasped the offen sive scheme,” Metcalf said. “The most pleasant surprise so far is the performances of the two freshmen, Vernon Smith and Albert Culton. They’ve done better than we ex pected at this point in the season.” Smith, from Dallas Carter, and Culton, from Ennis, are both for wards who were on the all-State team in high school. Playing as a team is still a problem the Ags have yet to overcome. “We have a lot of experience but only Wally Swanson and Joey Robinson bave been through two O.K.

This year’s starting line-up has yet to be announced, but tbe following five will probably start tonight’s game. Goff will be at the point; Wille Foreman and Swanson at the posts; and Godine and Williams at the wings. “Our main problem is becoming team oriented so that each player knows his limitations, Metcalf said. “Each player must realize his limita tions plus the limitations of his teammates. They must know their roles and must be Willing to perform in that role. The Aggies should be able to compete for the conference race this season. Metcalf expects a close con ference race. “Arkansas would have to be fa vored because they have already announced their starting line-up,” Metcalf said. “Of course, we expect to be right in there with them.” Tonight’s garhe begins at 7:30. The women will play before the men. The women are undefeated, with tonight’s tip-off occuring at 5:15. Jf IH IE A IK CILAJfJf FOR A CLASSY CUT.
