December 22, 1992|By Rich Scherr | Rich Scherr,Contributing Writer

To say that Eric Jones has a flair for the dramatic might be an understatement.

Jones, a player in the Howard County Youth Program's basketball league, scored his team's only basket in the first overtime period to send the game into double overtime, then scored the winning basket as North Carolina State defeated UCLA, 35-33, last week.

Jones scored a game-high 16 points for the Wolfpack, and Jon Norman added five. Chris Bowen led the Bruins with 10 points, followed by John Kerwin with six.

Playing in his first game of the year, John Gordon scored 10 points to lift Georgetown past Virginia, 27-26. Chris Foster added seven points for the Hoyas, and Ryan Meyers' game-high 14 points and Bobby Hommerbocker's four points and superior ball-handling kept Virginia close.

Brett Endler had eight points and Ryan Berwick added six as Georgia Tech defeated Maryland, 17-13. Tech's swarming defense held Terps' scoring threat Geordon Streat to four points. Richard Jankiewicz scored five points for Maryland.

Villanova defeated LSU, 30-12, as Elliott Harvey and Adam Boarman each scored eight. Scott Zielinski led LSU with four points.

Boston College used six points apiece from Phillip Conrad and Phillip Williams to defeat Duke, 21-18. Alex Bowman had eight points and Brad Marshall added four to lead the Blue Devils.

In a battle of the unbeatens, Chris Wottal scored eight points and Kyle O'Brien and Josh Wallace added six each as Miami defeated Notre Dame, 20-15. Collin Snovell and Jim Pisher each scored four to lead Notre Dame.

* Minor girls -- The strong play of Tara Moleski and Erin Rochelle helped power Notre Dame past Duke, 33-21, in Howard County Youth Program action last week.

In other games, Georgia Tech beat Duke, 10-9, and N.C. State, 16-8; Miami defeated Villanova, 26-18, and Boston College, 24-22; UCLA beat Villanova, 23-22; and LSU defeated Maryland, 17-13.

* Major boys -- High scoring was the norm this week in the majors.

Boston College defeated Georgia Tech, 59-54, then went on to beat UCLA, 58-41. In the only other game, Florida State defeated Miami, 39-24.

* Major girls -- Five out of seven games last week were decided by seven points or less.
