COLLEGE REPORT SHORT SHOTS

COLLEGE REPORT SHORT SHOTS

Guillermo Myers, a 6 ft. 8 in. center at Texas, is the only
Division I player from strife-torn Panama. In the wee hours of the
morning on Dec. 21, Myers learned of the invasion by U.S. troops. It
was 3:15 p.m. before he learned that all of his relatives were fine
but barricaded in their homes. That night, Myers, still
understandably upset, played 16 minutes but did not score in the
Longhorns' 98-74 home court victory over VMI. After the game, he was
taken from the arena by assistant coach Vic Trilli and shielded from
the media. . . . Baptist College took a 6-3 lead over Alabama in
Tuscaloosa but failed to score the rest of the half. The Buccaneers
trailed 32-6 at intermission en route to a 63-32 defeat. Asked about
the drought, Baptist coach Gary Edwards said, ''We did not shoot very
well.'' Thanks, Sherlock.
