opener. But Gettys still remem
bers Texas A&M’s 95-77 victory
over UH here last season.
“They just beat the spit out of
us up there in every aspect of the
game —just a good lickin’,” he
said. “I really don’t forget little
things like that. What got me
mad is the way the A&M players
reacted to it.”
Gettys wouldn’t elaborate on
just how the Aggies reacted to
their victory, but he said the
Gougars still have a score to
Gettys said the Cougars must
control the scoring of Aggie for
ward Claude Riley, who scored
38, 28 and 24 points in three
games with UH last year.
“Claude always lights us up,
so we’ll definitely have to be
ready for him,” he said. “And
there’s been a lot of talk about
Darrell Walker and Alvin
Robertson up at Arkansas, but
(Aggie guard) Reggie Roberts
plays as good if not better de
fense than both of those two.
“(Guard) Tyren Naulls is as
consistent as anybody I’ve seen.
The freshman center (Jimmie
Gilbert) is coming along real
well. And that freshman who
can shoot from 900 feet (Kenny
Brown) is really something else,

Clippers down Pistons, 115-108
United Press International
The San Diego Clippers have
stopped getting in their own way
long enough to send some oppo
nents stumbling.
“We’ve been playing better
ever since we started playing
good pressure defense,” Clip
pers’ coach Paul Silas said
Thursday night after rookie
Terry Cummings scored a team-
high 29 points in a 1 15-108 vic
tory over Detroit that sent the
Pistons to a closed-door meeting
after the game.
Tom Chambers had 21,
Jerome Whitehead 19, A1 Wood
16 and Lionel Hollins added 15
as San Diego won for the fifth
time in its last seven games.
“Down the stretch with about
three minutes to go our defense
really picked up,” said Silas. “We
started to deny them (Pistons).
That was the key.”
Detroit lost for the fourth
time in its last five games — the
last three to the NBA’s lowest
teams and, after the game, the
Pistons held a 20-minute,
closed-door meeting.
The Pistons’ Kelly Tripucka
had 33 points and Isiah Thomas
added 26.
San Diego led 82-80 entering
the final quarter but Detroit, 23-
25, rallied and at one point held
a live-point lead midway
through the period. The Clip
pers, 15-33, responded with
seven straight points to take a
101-99 lead with just over four
minutes remaining.
“We didn’t play as well as
we’re capable of, we played as if
we were tired,” said Detroit
coach Scotty Robertson. “They
out-defensed us, pressured us
and took our passes away.”
Pistons’ star guard John Long
was slightly injured in a two-car
auto accident Thursday night en
route to the Pontiac Silverdome
and did not play.
In other games, Denver ham
mered Atlanta 126-1 12 and Phi

At Atlanta, Alex English
scored 36 points to pace Denver.
