Qcont.j After a disappointing road trip, ACU headed or Hawaii to play in the Chaminade Tourna- ment. The Wildcats dropped two games to Chaminade and Northern Iowa, During the tournament, however, several players mentioned a degree of adversity, "We just werent used to each other yet," said Clardy, "There was a lot of ten- sion out there." The Wildcats began LSC play against defending champs Stephen F. Austin. The Lumberjacks shot a blistering 64 per- cent from the field to easily win the game. ACU then moved on to Huntsville to take on the Bearkats of Sam Houston. After committing 29 turnovers, however. the Wildcats walked away with their second con- ference loss. "We just had a mental breakdown with about three minutes remaining," said Merrill. "We made some un- forced errors, and they took advantage of them." ACU finally caught on to the "overtime game" by beating Texas A8cI, 75-75. The game was the first at home following the Christmas break, and 2,800 came out to Moody Col- iseum to see quite a show, including Turner's electrifying dunk that brought the crowd to their feet. Martin said after the game that the Cats should pick up momentum, but Southwest Texas State disfigured the Wildcats' press in the next game, and ACU shot a disastrous 37 percent from the field in the second half to hand SWT a easy victory. "The fans have to realize," said johnson, "th: with two or three new players, it takes time to learn to pla with each other." The Wildcats went on in the next game to beat Angel State, who was picked to win the conference. This gam marked the emergence of Travis Clardy. He had been use sparingly all season because of what Martin called an "a titude problem." "Travis can start at center if he really wani to," Martin said. But just when it seemed as if the Wildcats started to ge going, they returned to a lack of mental toughness and poc free-throw shooting. The Cats gave the next game to Ea: Texas State by allowing them to score 28 of 68 points fror the free-throw line, ACU then played what Merrill said was the best game the year in beating Howard Payne in Brownwood, and Cats rested at 3-4 in the LSC, good for a fourth-place at midway point. Although the Wildcats were looking for revenge agai i East Texas, everyone was cold, and Clardy came in 1 picked the Cats up, scoring 11 points to keep ACU in game, which they eventually won.
