DEADLINE JANUARY 27 Host Horns tonight MetcalFs men lose again By PAUL ARNETT Battalion Sports Editor The Texas Aggie basketball team is like the little boy with the curl.

ALBERT CULTON horrid, losing to the Red Raiders 71-58. “I think we need to place a little curl in the middle of our foreheads, ” coach Shelby Metcalf said. “I was pleased with the last 16 minutes. It was the first 24 that was so bad. ” In the first half the Ags shot a miserable 25 percent from the field. It picked up a bit in the second half. A&M was able to connect upon 47 percent of its shots. “It’s consistency that we are lack ing,” Metcalf said. “Sometimes we play really well, and sometimes we play really bad. We shot poorly in the first half because we didn’t move the ball. “Some of the guys on the team have this ‘cool’ attitude about them. We’re going to have to get rid of that. I think from now on the guys who want to hustle and give 100 per cent are the ones who are going to be in the line-up. You’re not going to see us play another game like the one today.” A&M can’t afford to play another game like the one against Tech. To night the Aggies host the unde feated Longhorns.

Krivacs is the second leading scorer in the conference av eraging 21 points a game. Baxter is averaging 18.5 points a game, while Moore is averaging 14. “They are a guard oriented of fense,” Metcalf said. “All of those guys can shoot well from the out side.
