Rollie White. The Aggie Ladies won the season opener, 89-83. By JON HEIDTKE Battalion Staff 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.

Oilers defeat Bears, United Press International CHICAGO — Houston Coach Bum Phillips says he doesn’t know where he got the play but the situa tion was right for the Oilers to use a fake field goal to turn their game around with the Chicago Bears Sun day, 10-6. With Houston trailing 6-0, reserve quarterback Gifford Nielsen, who doubles as the field goal holder, shuf fled an 8-yard TD pass to Tim Wilson on an apparent field goal attempt with just two seconds to go in the first half. That play, coupled with a career high 206-yard rushing performance by Earl Campbell, enabled the Oil ers to improve their record to 8-3 and take sole possession of first place in was two years ago against Newt the AFC Central. land, ” Phillips said.

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 tonight. 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 takes. “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. ” 11A.M.
