It was a year that included injuries, adversity, winning and :sing streaks, and the shock and loss of the only senior quit- ng the team with three games left in the regular season. The Wildcats finished 14-14 for the year, the best record nce Mike Martin became head coach trhee years ago. 'Iany fans thought, however, that it should have been much etter, considering the fine recruiting year Martin and assis- int coach Dave Merrill had. Martin pulled in Greg johnson, a 6-3 guard from 'Iilwaukee, Wis.g Tony Turner, a 6-5 guard from Cheyenne, Vyo.g and john Robinson, a 6-4 guard from Shreveport, La., 'ho specialized in shooting percentage and rebounds, a 'ansfer from Southwest Christian College. But Martin didn't look at just junior colleges. He also ranaged to sign Ryant Green, a top guard from Plano, and Paryn Shearmire, a shooting guard who averaged 37 points a ame at Archer City. Put those groups with a solid returning crew of Craig Villiams, who was named honorable mention All-American ie year before, Mike Davis, a heady 6-5 forward from Visner, La., Travis Clardy, a 6-7 center from Lubbock who lways got the job doneg and 6-7 center Ian Hyslop, the Vildcats' top freshman from the year before, and you're looking at a very promising season. The Wildcats opened it by sweeping the "Texas- Oklahoma-Kansas Shootout" with victories over Emporia State, Marymount and Central State of Oklahoma. Williams was named the tournaments Most Valuable Player, and johnson was named to the all-tournament team. "We played good, but we did make a few mistakes," said Martin. Williams suffered an ankle injury in the second half of the Central State game and played sparingly the next two games. However, ACU continued to roll, chalking up victories over Wayland Baptist and Mary Hardin-Baylor. just as Williams was nursing his ankle back to health, however, Robinson crashed to the floor in the Wayland Bap- tist game, shattering his knee cap. Robinson spent the entire season on the bench. One thing Martin did to promote the basketball program was to play NCAA-I schools. The agenda featured the University of Oklahoma and Kansas State. Oklahoma, rated 10th in the nation by Sporty Illzulrazed, abused the Wildcats 110-61. "We were rattled when we came in," Martin had said after the game. "Well do better against Kansas State." The Wildcats played tough against Kansas State but lost by 13 points. Oppostie page: lan Hyslop pumps the ball as he tries to sail by an Eastern New Mexico State opponent.
