Mandela greeted by thousands of supporters

Assoctated Press

CAPE TOWN, South Africa —
Nelson Mandela walked through a
prison gate to freedom yesterday,
setting off joyous celebrations and
Violent clashes as blacks nation-
wide welcomed their leader back
frotn 27 years in jail.

“(‘omrades and fellow South Al'-
ricaiis, l greet you all in the name
of ptace, detnocracy and freedom
for all,“ Mandela told tens of thou-
sands of cheering supporters who
thronged outside City Hall, tnany
getting their first look at the Afri—
can National Congress leader. “I
stand here before you not at as a
prophet, but as a humble servant of
you the people."

Within an hour of the release. as
Mandela's tnotorcade arrived at
City Hall, violence broke out. First
aid workers and joumahsts said one
person was killed and more than

Some youths retaliated by hur~
ling bottles at the officers. Hun—
dreds of terrified people waiting to
hear Mandela ran for cover as po.
lice tired blasts of shotgun pellets.

(‘lashes between police and cele-
brating blacks were reported in at
least two other areas, while in lo

and other L itics.

”We have waited too long for our
freedom," Mandela told the crowd.
He said that until the proper climate
was created for peaceful negotia~
tions. the armed struggle was still a
policy of the ANC.

“The factors that (caused the
need for armed strtigglei exist to-
day." Mandela said. “We haye no
options but to continue. We express
the hope that a climate conducive
to a negotiated settlement would be

Lexington rally rejoices over ANC leader

Campus Editor

As conga drums beat the tune of
a West African welcoming song,
more than 200 people rallied at Tri-
angle Park last night in celebration
of the release of African National
Congress leader Nelson Mandela.

The release ended the 27 1/2
years of imprisonment for one of
South Africa’s most celebrated
black leaders.

Although Mandela was released
from prison yesterday, he is not a
free man, said Msiba Grundy, an
organizer for the Lexington rally.

“Nelson Mandela has not been
freed, he has been released. To be
free means that you have control of
your life and of your destiny.”
Grundy said. “I don’t know any Af-
rican people tn the world who have
control of their life and of their desw

The release is also considered to
mark a time of change for the peo-
ple in South Africa and the wea~
kening of the government.

“African people are watching this
moment. when I say African people
I mean world-wide. I think it has

The way L‘K senior Stephen
Ratler talks about it. you would
think getting tickets to UK basket—
ball games in the lottery is akin to
dealing lll the stock market.

“You glast have to negotiate and
trade well." Rader said after pick-
ing up his usual front—row seats
yesterday for Thursday night‘s

game. “Sure. a lot of it is luck, but

Yesterday morning's lottery,
which included about 1,400 “trad-
ers," was the biggest since the
1987 UKsllnivcrsity of Louisville

As lor the number of student
tickets remaining for the LSU
game, it still appears that all stu.
dents with validated student iden—
tification will get seats.

"We‘ve never turned a student
away from a UK athletic event,
and we hope to be able to contin-
ue saying that after the LSU
game," said Bob Clay, director of
residence life.

Despite the high demand for
regular student tickets. guest tick-
ets will be available for the LSU

will depend on the si/e of the to-

Murray St.
is nation’s
hottest team



MURRAY, Ky. — Little
was expected from the Mur-
ray State Racers this season.

After losing all-time lead-
ing scorer Jeff Martin to the
NBA and all-time assist lead-
er Don Mann to the Conti-
nental Basketball Associa-
tion, the Racers were picked
to finish fifth in the Ohio
Valley Conference.

Most figured that Murray
State would struggle to fin-
ish in the top half of the
OVC because they were load-
ed with young, unproven tal-

Bill the Racers have found
themselves and are kicking
some tail. And the Racers are
the hottest team in the coun-
try as they own the nations
longest winning streak at 12.

Murray State is the na-
tion’s hottest team.

When Baylor stunned N0.
3 Arkansas. who was riding a
12-game streak, Saturday af-
ternoon, the Racers took over
the top spot.

But the Racers did not have
an easy time holding on to
the top spot, which they
gained only a few hours be-
fore their game with Tennes-
see State. Tennessee State (7-
15. 2—5 in the OVC) took the
Racers to overtime before
Munay prevailed 90-89.

With the win, the Racers
(.166 overall) ran their spot-
less OVC record to 8-0 and
lead the league by three

So where did the Racers.
who started the season 14,
come from? What is causing
their opponents trouble?

-Weight. Ronald “Pop-
eye" Jones, a 6-8 sophomore
forward. dropped 40 pounds
from last season and is hav-
ing an MVP-type year. He‘s
averaging more than 18
points and 11 rebounds,
which ranks him in the
NCAA‘s top 10, per game.

NBA scout Marty Blake re-
cently said Jones was a
“player to watch in the up-
coming years."

Jones is definitely the
“biggest" surprise. After
Slimfastdng down to 220
pounds, he has dominated op—
posing teams with his inside
scoring ability and defense.
Jones” _iump hook on the
baseline is unstoppable.

-Youth. Frank Allen. a
freshman point guard from
Memphis Southside, has fol.
lowed Mann with amazing
ease. The freshman has taken
the leadership role, which
was non-existent at the be-
ginning of the season.

Allen’s dead-eye shooting
has kept opposing teams
from doubling Jones on the
inside. Plus, he rebounds re-
markably well for a 6-2
guard. In Saturday‘s game.
Allen scored 26 points and
grabbed 10 rebounds.

-Experience. Senior
Chris Ogden and junior Paul
King remain from Murray
State‘s NCAA team of 1988.
which defeated North Caroli-
na State in the first round be-
fore nanowly falling to even-
tual champion Kansas.

Both Ogden and King are
St. Louis natives and are de-
fensive specialists. Ogden, a
6-7 forward, averages about
10 points per game mostly
coming off rebounds. King, a
6-4 guard, is a streak shooter.

With the OVC regular sea-
son champion hosting the
OVC Tournament, Murray
State will have a big advan-
tage if they can keep their
streak alive. Racer Arena.
which seats 5,500, is a snake
pit. And Racer Arena could
vault Murray State back into
the NCAA Tournament.

WBC, WBA strip Douglas of heavyweight title

Associated Press

TOKYO — Knocking out Mike Tyson
was improbable enough for Buster Douglas.
Now, he hopes boxing doesn’t decide Mike
Tyson knocked him out first.

At least two organizations — the World
Boxing Council and the World Boxing Asso-
ciation — withheld recognition Sunday of
Douglas' 10th-round knockout pending an in-
vestigation into a “long count" protest lodged
by promoter Don King.

Tyson, knocked out for the first time in
his pro career, claimed he’s still the champi-
on: “I knocked him out before he knocked me

Douglas, however, said: “Just call it a vic-
tory for the small man."

While the fight is being called one of the
biggest upsets in boxing history, the “long
count” controversy once again has the boxing
world in a state of confusion.

A tape of Sunday‘s heavyweight champi-
onship fight at the Tokyo Dome showed that
because of referee Octavio Meyran’s error,
Douglas was on the canvas for 12 seconds af-
ter being knocked down late in the eighth
round. Two rounds later. Douglas knocked
out Tyson.

Jose Sulaiman of Mexico, president of the
WBC, and WBA president Gilberto Mendoza
of Venezuela, both announced they were sus-
pending the result.


“There is no champion
before Feb. 20," Sulai-
man said. The WBC exec-
utive committee will
meet Feb. 20 at Mexico
City to try to resolve the

The International Box-
ing Federation, however,
said the outcome was

“Right now, at this
point, we have to recognize Douglas as
champion," IBF president Bob Lee said in a
telephone interview from his home in Fan-
wood, N.J. Lee said the IBF sanctioned the
bout as a championship match, but the the
Japan Boxing Commission does not recog-
nize the group.

While the WBC executive committee is to
meet next week, there will be a special ses-
sion of the WBA executive and champion-


_ ship committees in a week or 10 days, Men—

doza said.

At a news conference about six hours after
the early afternoon fight, Sulaiman indicated
what course the two governing bodies might

“When there are problems, a rematch is ab
solutely mandatory,” Sulaiman said.

While King did not immediately comment
on the controversy, rival promoter Bob Arum
of Top Rank Inc. said: “The WBA and WBC
should be banned They‘re totally immoral

organizations. They're not smart and they of-
fend the sensibilities."

Douglas’ disputed victory has created a
wide-open heavyweight division that for three
years had been the personal domain of Tyson,
who was 37-0 with 33 knockouts. It‘s still
unclear what will happen next in the dwi-
sion, although a rematch between Douglas
and Tyson appears likely, especially since
King promotes both fighters. Meanwhile,
No. 1 contender Evander Holyfield awaits his
chance at a title fight.

Another contender, George Foreman, was
not shocked by Tyson‘s loss.

“That‘s what happens when you live the
tough life," Foreman said. “In a way. I‘m
glad things came out the way they did be-
cause so many kids, because of Mike Ty-
son‘s image, thing that‘s the way you can be
and come out on top."

Randy Gordon, chairman of the New York
State Athletic Commission. said, “It may be
the greatest upset of all time, but because
this is such a political business, don‘t be sur~
prised ifa rematch is ordered immediately."

Tyson was scheduled to defend the title
against Holyfield on June 18 at Atlantic
City, NJ. Holyfield has no contractual obli-

All ‘A’ Classic 3 success, should continue

Staff Writer

The All “A" Classic tournament
was labeled as the chance for the
smaller schools to have a state
title. But that mission was thwarted
by the University Heights Academy
“national" team.

The Hopkinsville private school
has an enrollment of only 62. But
their roster seemingly contains as
many foreigners as appear on the
Louisiana State University squads
of basketball‘s international ambas-
sador Dale Brown.

The Blazers beat the Owsley
County Owls Saturday night for
the title, starting the 6-8 son of the
Spanish national team coach and a
native of Great Britain.

Despite that, the 33,359 people
who entered Memorial Coliseum
for the All “."A Classic basketball
tournament seemed to enjoy them-
selves. Loud shrieks were common
as new heroes were named.

Owsley County fans, one of the
largest contingencies to venture to
Lexington, stayed en masse even
after their team lost. They remained
enthusiastic as two of their players
were named to the All Tournament
Team and their senior center Jeff
Moore was named Tourney MVP.

“This is probably the biggest
game we‘ve ever played in and
probably the biggest crowd we ever
played in front of," Moore said.

Although the global Blazers
won, the tournament was still a
victory for the smaller schools.




The 121 schools that participated
in the tournament showed the orga-
nizers that the need they perceived
for this tournament was not un-

Organizers were evidently satis-
fied, as they announced that the
event will be continued next year.

“I'm very pleased,“ said Lexing-

Baesler could identify with the
plight of the small schools. as he
encountered the same situation at~
tending Athens High School.

“We had about 100 people in my
school," Baesler said.

The mayor said that there were
two primary reasons why the tour-
nament helps Lexington.

“First 1 think to have people
come and enjoy their stay is impor—
tant for Lexington." Baesler said.

The mayor also said that having

The 4,250 fans attending the fi-
nal game saw the Owls jump out
to 9-2 lead. forcing t'nivetsity

“l'tlvink a lot of that was nervous

From there the Blazers controlled
the game and lead at the half by
nine. Owsley cut the lead to 51-44
in the first minute of the second
half. The Blazers went on to win

"We hope that this is not the
pinnacle,“ said L'HA coach Roy
Woolum. “lt's gotta help, there’s
no way it could hurt."

Some people have questioned
what effect a tournament of this
‘il/C will have on a team that will
be required to go through that same
emotional wringer the following
weeks in the district, regional and
state toumaments.

“Later 111 the game I think we
