Lady Aggies win
to begin season

Texas A&M women’s basketball coach Cherri Rapp talks to
her players during a break in the action Saturday against
Southeastern Louisiana in G. Rollie White. The Aggie Ladies
won the season opener, 89-83.
By JON HEIDTKE
Kelley Sullivan and duRae Gill fueled a final five-minute outburst in
the second half to propel the Aggie Ladies to a season-opening
women’s basketball 89-83 win over Southeastern Louisiana before a
spirited crowd of 250 fans.
The first 15 minutes of the second half, which started with A&M up
by a 50-48 count, produced a seesaw affair with neither team being able
to grab a lead larger than four points.
But with five minutes remaining and the Aggies down 76-75, Gill, a
freshman walk-on, hit a 15-foot jumper to signal the beginning of the
end for the Lady Lions. During the next four minutes the Ags
outscored SLU 12-2 by converting steals into easy baskets to break
the game open.
Gill picked up six points, Sullivan four and Cathy Fuller two during
the game-breaking stretch. For the night, Fuller led all scorers with 24
points, while Gill and Sullivan each chipped in 16 for the Aggies.
As in the case of most season openers, the game was filled with
turnovers (42 for the Lions and 38 for the Ags) and fouls, as three
women from each team fouled out.
The Aggies were fortunate to come out on top since SLU outre-
bounded them by a whopping 79 to 39, shot 11 more free throws and
had a better shooting percentage for the game (44 to 41 percent).
But in the end it was the Aggies’ pressing defense, which resulted in
a 15 to five steal margin, and missed free throws by the Lions, who hit
on only of 23 of 47 attempts, which helped A&M come out on top.
“I was real proud of the way Cathy (Fuller), Kelley (Sullivan) and
duRae (Gill) played, ” said Head Coach Cherri Rapp. “They all played
aggressively even after they had four fouls.’’
The Aggies win blunted a brilliant performance by SLU’s Rita Austin
and Robin Roberts. Austin, a 6-4 center, scored 21 points and hauled
down 14 rebounds, while Roberts added 20 points and 21 rebounds.

Cowboys slip past Cardinals, 31-21
United Press International
IRVING — Be sure to speak up if
this one sounds familiar, but the Dal
las Cowboys came from behind to
beat the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday.
The pattern has become so famil
iar that it might be on the late movie
This is the version where Dallas
slips and slides around in a chilling
rain while St. Louis builds an almost
instant 14-point lead and then the
Cardinals watch their advantage dis
appear while Danny White throws
touchdown passes and Drew Pear
son breaks records.
But it has the same old ending, the
Cowboys winning — 31-21 — and
the Cardinals wondering what it
“We probably need more intensi
ty,” St. Louis flanker Pat Tilley sur
mised. “We are a bunch of young
players who obviously don’t really
know how to win yet. ”
