Cav’s Split Home Stand
Bennett and Watson Spark Comeback
By Matt Haney
After losing an important confer
ence match up at TN-Temple, the Cavs
needed a strong showing in "The Cavs
House" against conference rivals Bryan
and Covenant last week.
The Bryan Lions came to play.
Unintimidated by the unusually sedate
crowd. Martinez,#23 fortheLions,huit the
Cavs early, splitting though the defense
and taking lay-ups from the paint
Brian Levering arxl Kevin Laws, only the
hustle of Aaron Gabriel and the rebound
ing and shooting savvy of Rodney Scott
allowed the Cavs to be within 2 at the 10
minute mark, 21-23.
Bryan continued to drive and score
at will for the rest of the half, with 9
different players getting baskets in the
last 10 minutes of the 1st half.
Coach McNamara reprimanded the
team at the half siting thattheLionsmade
15 of 17 lay-ups and that defensively the
Cavs were letting the Lions walk all over
them. As the Cavs left the locker room
Coach said, "We need to stand-up, man
up, and play defense".
The Cavs entered the second half on
fire. Players silent in the first half, like Brud
Gatsiel and Brian Levering sfmmg to life.
Midway throu^ the rally, the crowd held its
tobeaserious knee injury (He returned at the
15:28). Without Scott the Cavs struggled to
puUto48 all at the 16:25 mark and then took
a 50 to 48 lead with 16 minutes left.
Then Liars again attacked. Mthelast
lOminutes, Pack, #55 for the Lions, scored
9 poirrts from the floor and hit 5 of 5 Iree-
throws in an attempt to put the Cavs away.
But the Cavs would rxrt roll over.
With 49 seconds left Travis Ross hit a 3
point shot to pull the Cavs within 5. Then
BradGabrielstole the ball backat half court
The C:!avs lost the ball before being able to
take the shot artd eventually lost 96-90.
Though falling short the Cavs
showed that even when playing poorly
they still have the ability to come back and
keep "aneversay die" attitude which would
prove to be cmcial against Covenant
Covenant entered the "C!avs’ House"
last Friday night taking an early lead in
whatlooked to be an embarrassing rout At
the 8:55 mark of the 1st half they had
dominated the Cavs taking a 15 point ad
vantage, mostly through the leadership of
Nathan Unruh, who already had 8 points.
Coach McNamara realized that the
team that he had started the game with did
rx)t have the chemistry to handle Covenant
He began substituting players in and out
looking for the spark to ignite the offense.
He found that spark in the Asheville Chris
tian Academy stand out 'J.B.' Bennett
J.B. carved qren the underside of the
Covenant defense wifti two surgical passes
to Rodney Scott, igniting ftie fans (The 6th
man*) and spiiting the team. Todd Starkey
went on to score 2 three point fiays and hit 6
of 6 fieethrows before tlK half When the
smoke cleared the Cavs had recovered fion
the deficit to take a 39 to 32 advantage.
Covenant came out in the second half
to rally, taking a 55 to 53 lead before Todd
Starkey arxl Lance Watsai wdee tire Cavs

The Ministry of Restoration
By Steve Barrett
I appreciated reading the editorial in last week's Aletheia by Mark V/right
entitled "Another King of Prejudice." I believe Mark is correct when he states
"instead of turning oirr backs on these people (sinners...), and criticizing everything
that is wrong with them, we should be praying that they will turn around."
However, my question to Mark and the student body is, who do we pray for?
If we can answer this question, haven't we contradicted what was stated in the last
paragraph of the editorial? Mark quoted the infamous passage from Matthew 7:1-
5, which in his opinion clearly states we cannot Judge. Verse 5 in chapter 7 gives
us specific guidelines in the area of Judging others. First Matthew states, we must
take the plank out of our eye, and then we will see clearly to remove the speci from
your brothers eye. Picture this verse, the writer is using symbolism to get the point
over that we have great faults in our lives, but if we correct them, then and only then
can we go and help our brother. If anyone comes into my office and sees me bowing
down to a wooden image, please, those of you who have removed the plank from
your own eye come and Judge me to restore me and not condemn me.
I offer a better passage to extract what I believe Mark was trying to convey.
It speaks clearly of the ministry of restoration, of how to restore a brother who has
wronged. Luke 15:11-32. We have all read it, its the story of the prodigal son. It
is also the story of how the (our) father treats us when we have sinned and the story
of how the brother reacted to the son. Read through it and ask yourself, who am I,
the son, who repented, the father who loved and showed compassion or the brother
who erred in thinking he was better than the son? Isn't that the same thinking the
pharisee had when praying along side the tax collecta in Matthew 18:9-14?

In the first half, the Ladies lost

ond half, the ladies settled in and played
more aggressively and defensively.
Bennett College had only five play
ers and one fouled out at the end of the first

the Ladies from scoring. However, this
team was rx) match for the Lady Cavs.
Amy Baker, leading scorer of the

still came out with a tough defense."
