loses another player
By Sam McKewon
Don’t be surprised if there’s a “Help
Wanted” sign outside the door of Texas
Basketball Coach Tony Barone’s
The Aggies’ roster has dwindled
down to eight players after losing a
fourth player, guard Chris Clayton, for
the rest of the season as A&M prepares
to play host to Nebraska Wednesday at
“I put a want ad in the College
Station paper to anyone who’s eligible
to come on in,” Barone said. “My assis
tant coaches are refusing to practice.”
A&M began the season with 12
scholarship players, but the season
ending injuries soon began to strike.
Barone said the limited number of
scholarships has prevented the Aggies
“We have the perfect example here
of what happens when you only have
12 players on scholarship,” Barone
said. “I’m not making any excuses, but
we’re asking a lot of kids.”
The loss of Clayton comes at a time
when A&M is still searching for its first
Big 12 Conference win. After losing
three games by a total of 11 points, the
Aggies (6-14 overall and 0-10 in the
Big 12 Conference) were throttled by
Texas Tech Saturday 102-75.
“I was asking our kids a lot to give a
fourth great effort in a row,” Barone
said. “We’re just going to keep plug
ging away, and hopefully the ball will
bounce our way.”
NU (13-10 and 4-6) will enter
Wednesday’s matchup needing a win to
keep pace in the Big 12 and keep its
NCAA Tournament hopes alive. The
Comhuskers are in the midst of a four
game losing streak after a 69-63 loss to
Kansas State Saturday.
Barone said he still considers
Nebraska a dangerous team and one
that can make noise late in the season.
“Nebraska’s had a lot of close
games that could have went either way,”
Barone said. “They could have beaten
Kansas at home.”
“There’s a whole logjam in the mid
dle of the Big 12. The next six games
will determine a lot about seedings.”
The key to stopping the Huskers,
Barone said, is a familiar recipe: Stop
Lue comes in averaging 20.7 points
and 5.0 assists per game, both good for
third in the Big 12. He has, however,
made only 25 of 74 shots (33.7 percent)
in his last four games.
Still, Barone said he’s taking noth
ing for granted.
“Lue gives everyone fits,” Barone
said. “He puts you on your heels. You
have to try to keep the ball away from
The Aggies counter with guard/for
ward Shanne Jones, who averages 18.3
points and 7.0 rebounds per game. He’s
averaging 26.7 points in his last four
Complementing Jones will be
Texas A&M’s limited squad. Barone
said he intends to use what few players
he has left
“We have eight guys on our team,
and all eight of them are going to play
a lot of minutes against Nebraska.”

WRIGHT from page 7
“I’m not a track person, but I
have a God-given ability, and I’m
going to use it for God’s will, his
honor and glory,” Wright said. “So
I’m very thankful for that”
Humble as ever, Wright gave
thanks to both of his coaches, Pepin
and NU Sprints Coach Billy
“(Pepin) is like the father on the
track team,” Wright said. “Maxwell’s
a tough guy. He’ll yell and scream,
but deep down he’s a teddy bear, a
Maxwell, who has coached near
ly 30 NCAA champions in his 30
plus years of coaching said some
times Wright needs to be yelled at to
“Chris is really talented, and he
certainly has a chance to compete at
a higher level,” Maxwell said “But
he does need a little kick every now
Wright had qualified for the
Atlanta Olympics in 1996, but was
unable to compete for the Bahamas
due to a hamstring injury in his left
After Wright graduates in
August, he plans to dedicate part of
his time to training for the 2000
Olympic games in Sydney,
Wright, who refused to reveal his
age, declined offers to train with the
prestigious Santa Monica Track
Club three times during his college
career, so he could stay closer to the
Bahamas and finish school.
After his jumping days end,
Wright says he’ll return to the
Bahamas to be closer to his family,
who have been unable to watch him
compete in person.
One day, Wright said, he hopes
his parents, Thezel and Herman, will
be able to see him jump - perhaps in
“I pray that if everything goes
well, I’ll be ready for Sydney in
