THE BATTALION TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1980 age 8 sports i\( Co-leaders A&M, Arkansas prepare for battle By TONY GALLUCCI Sports Editor It seems as if the Aggies will never find rest; but then champions never do. Every game looms larger as the Aggies prepare their next assault on the way to the lonely top. This time, it is more than just a hill the Aggies must conquer. It is THE hill and it is called Arkansas. With both teams sporting a spotless 5-0 SWC record the matchup tonight in G. Rollie White Coliseum has right fully been called “The SWC Game of the Year.” Arkansas comes into the game with a 12-3 record overall and the Aggies enter at 13-5. A&M, the pre season favorite to win the confer ence, stumbled early but has recent ly come on like gangbusters while Arkansas has maintained a rather steady pace. It will be as good a physical match up as a paper one and the Ags must be ready to play if they want the bragging rights. Arkansas coach Eddie Sutton has been blowing smoke all week as he is often wont to do. But then there has been more than idle talk about an undefeated SWC season for this most talented- ever Aggie squad. Only they can control their des tiny at this point and it is home floor time. “I hope we re ready to play — there’s no reason we shouldn’t be, ’ said head coach Shelby Metcalf fol lowing his team’s last major workout before the game. “Tt’s gonna be a tough ballgame.” “Hastings has been playing well for them — something like 19 points has been his low game in the confer ence. Scott Hastings has been aver aging 20.5 for the Razorbacks in SWC play. “And (Alan) Zahn’s play ing real well,” Metcalf said. “We ll put Vernon (Smith) on Zahn. He’s capable of handling him, if he goes out ready.” “They either play a man or 2-3 zone or defense,” he continued. “They’ll usually play man until they get ahead of you and then they go into their zone. It really doesn’t mat ter to us. We’ve attacked both of them equally well.” “We ll start (Dave) Goff on (Keith) Hilliard and put (David) Britton on (U.S.) Reed who’s about 6-2 — but plays about 6-5. ” That last comho could be a good matchup according to Metcalf. “If for some reason their guards get to thinking they’re too big — well Tyrone (Ladson) plays preth big. If they put Mike Young in there — he’s about 6-4 — Sly (Steve Syles- tine) should match up pretty good with him. I think Sly could probably handle Friess too,” said Metcalf. “It’s not too bad of a matchup," says Metcalf. Dandy, I’d say. Game timeisS p. m. and the doors will be closed and locked when G.
