Battalion Classified 845-2611 ATLANTA (AP) — No one ap preciated the acrobatic display of the varied ways to put a ball into the bas ket more than Dominique Wilkins and Michael Jordan, and they were the guys putting on the show. Jordan, who visited the Atlanta Hawks locker room to salute Wilkins after the game, said each impressed the other as they exchanged dazzling drives to the basket Wednesday night. “We’d give each other compli ments,” the Chicago Bulls star said. “We’d say, ‘Great move,’ or ‘Great steal,’ or ‘Nice dunk.’” Wilkins said his opponent was “unbelievable. You’ve got to give him his bows. I find myself watching him sometimes, and I’m sure he does the same.” Wilkins scored 57 points for At lanta night while Jordan had his eighth straight 40-point plus for the Bulls. Wilkins hit 19 of 28 shots from the field and 19 of 21 free throws as the Hawks pounded the Bulls 123-95 in their NBA game. Jordan scored 41 points on 15 of 25 field goal at tempts and 11 of 12 free throws. Wilkins, who tied his career high, called the game “absolute fun. I couldn’t have had more fun.” “I’ve got nothing to prove scoring- wise,” said the Hawks forward, who led the league in scoring last year but has conceded the honor this time to Jordan. “Michael’s going to win it, and more power to him. I’m differ ent now. I pick my spots.” And why did he pick Wednesday night? “It’s a competition thing. If I’d shot 5-for-21 tonight, I’d have been very disappointed. Michael’s such a great athlete, he makes you want to do well against him.” “Dominique just came out firing,” teammate Randy Wittman said. “He was getting out on the break, he was blocking shots to start the break, he was getting open down low and they weren’t double-teaming him. He was unstoppable.” Jordan’s streak of eight games with at least 40 points is six short of the NBA record. Wilt Chamberlain had 14-game streaks of 40-point- plus games in 1961 and 1962 with the Philadelphia Warriors. “Zookiri good” holiday special The Works-$10 Let us treat you for the holidays!

Tech upsets Wyoming LUBBOCK (AP) — Senior Guard Mike Nelson scored 18 points and junior forward Greg Crowe scored 17 Thursday night to power Texas Tech to a 69-61 victory over 19th- ranked Wyoming in a nonconfer ence game. Tech, which snapped a four-game losing string with its second win of the season, rallied around the three- point shooting of Nelson to grab a 38-22 halftime lead. The loss was the first in five games for Wyoming. Nelson hit all three of his three- point tries to finish with 12 first-half points as the Red Raiders raced away from the rattled Cowboys. The Raiders increased their lead to 46-26 with 17 minutes and 30 sec onds remaining in the game before the Cowboys rallied behind the three-point shooting of Fennis Dembo, who led all scorers with 31 points. Dembo hit three three-pointers within 1:40 as Wyoming chiseled a 57-45 lead to 59-53 with 4 minutes and 59 seconds remaining. Dembo then got a pair of slam dunks to pull Wyoming to within three points at 64-61 with 1 minute and 22 seconds left to play. Nelson countered for Tech with a 15-foot jump shot and Dwayne Chism had a layup with eight sec onds remaining to ice the victory. Ninth-ranked Oklahoma explodes past Texas 84-65 AUSTIN (AP) — No. 9 Okla homa, led by 20 points by Darryl Kennedy, broke open a close game with nine minutes left to waltz away with an 84-65 victory over Texas Thursday night in a nationally tele vised nonconference game. Oklahoma, 4-1, led by eight points, 54-46, with 9 minutes and 30 left to play. Over the next three min utes, Kennedy and reserve forward David Johnson combined for 11 points while Texas managed just four, giving the Sooners a 65-50 lead. Tim McCalister, Oklahoma’s lead ing scorer with a 29-point per game average, was held to just 15 points on five of 15 shots. Three other Sooners scored in double figures: Harvey Grant with 16, Johnson, 13, and Ricky Grace, 12. “I thought we played best at crit ical times down the stretch in both halves,” Sooner Head Coach Billy Tubbs said. “Our defense forced them away from the basket more than they would have liked. “We played the way they wanted to for the first seven minutes and the rest of the way the way we wanted to,” he said. “Texas definitely won the time of possession. They had the ball about 30 minutes and we had it 10,” he said. Patrick Fairs led Texas with 16 points, followed by Raynard Davis with 15 and Travis Mays with 14. Davis scored six of Texas’ first 8 points helping the Longhorns jump out to an 8-4 lead with 15:45 left. The Sooners outscored Texas 10- 2 over the next three minutes though to take the lead for good.
