But oh, the times they are a-changing. Not only is Gregory gym a thing of the past, but so are the exciting games between Texas and A&M. Or so it seemed Monday night when the Aggies made their first visit to the “Super Drum and came away with a 90-66 dismanding at the hands of the Longhorns. And it was a good return for the Longhorns who have had a week off from conference play. “We did look a little lackadaisical tonight,” said Texas’ coach Abe Lemmons after the game. “Our of fense wasn’t as productive as I hoped it would of been. But that’s because of our week lay-off. But lis ten to me. We went out and scored 90 points tonight and fm worried about the offense.” But one man the Lemmons doesn’t have to worry about is guard Jim Krivacs. Playing the entire ball gane, Krivacs destroyed the Aggies with 34 points, 24 of them in the first half. “The team just kept getting the ball to me in the first half and my shots were dropping,” said Krivacs. Don t get Lost In the Computer Career Maze... START AT PRIME If you think finding your way around the computer career maze has to be confusing, think smart. If you think all computer companies offer the same challenges and opportunities, think “They (Aggies) couldn’t stop the double pick that we were using. 1 was just cutting off of it and I kept getting open for the shots. “Theoretically, you can’t defend against that play. If a team keys on me someone else will get open. But the key to running the play is pa tience. If we’re patient, our offense will work.” And Texas was patient to the tune of shooting 46 per cent from the field. The Aggies shot 33 per cent. One thing that surprised Texas about the game was A&M falling behind early in the second half and not going to the full-court press that they used so effectively against Texas the last time the two clubs met. “One reason I think they stayed away from the press was because it was their first time in the building,’ said Lemmons. “It was probably hard for them because our court is so far away from the stands that it looks a lot wider than it really is. “But I really think that we re too fast for them to press us. We have a lot of good ball handlers on this club. Plus we’ve been practicing it since the last time we played.” Texas forward Ron Baxter, who had 10 points, seven assists and seven rebounds on the night, had a different view of the game. “This game wasn’t as physical as the one we played in College Sta tion. We were in control of the con test tonight. That was our main ob jective going into the game. We wanted to control, force them into making some early mistakes and then jump on them offensively. And it worked.” One reason the Texas game plan worked is the fact that A&M had 27 turnovers in the game to 11 for Texas. “That was the difference in the game,” said Lemmons. “Though they did out rebound us (64-42), they kept giving the ball back to us. “But we didn’t do too bad from Ji Wr Battalion photo by Pat Oil Holding on the play A&M forward Jarvis Williams (No.25) tries in vain to gel loose from a Red Raider hold.

Worth. It s bad because he will be unable to compete against A&M s Curtis Dickey in the 60-yard dash. The meeting would have brought to gether two world-class sprinters. , Curtis Dickey and the rest of the Aggie men’s track team ran at an in door meet in Oklahoma City, Okla. Dickey surpassed all of the coaches expectations by winning the 60-yard dash in a blistering time of 6.17. The time is six-hundredths of a second off the world record set by Houston McTear. Jones is Texas’ premiere sprinter and “world's fastest football player. This could be disputed by Dickey, but the two will have to wait until OPAS presents Texas Opera Theatre performing (Robinson Crusoe Thursday, February 16, 1978 8:15 P.M.

Dickey feels he can improve his time this week because he ran in the last meet with only one week s workout. “Curtis just ran a super race,' coach Ted Nelson said. "He came out of the blocks well and finished well ahead of the pack.’ Nelson also explained that the race was electronically timed which eliminated human error. Manfred Kohrs also ran well for the Aggies. He broke the school record for the indoor mile run with a time of 4:11. Coach Nelson said he was pleased with the team’s over all performance and said they should be “right in the running’ for the indoor cham pionship this Friday in Ft. Worth.
