His team injured, battered and bruised going into the post-season tournament, Stephen F. Austin head coach Danny Kaspar didn't want to hear any excuses.

"I told my team I didn't want to hear anything said," the coach said. "I didn't want them to feel sorry for themselves."

The Lumberjacks then went out and outexecuted and outhustled their opening round opponent at the Southland Conference Tournament.

Riding the hot shooting hand of guard Eddie Williams and a big defensive performance, SFA coasted to a surprisingly easy 77-54 win over Texas-Arlington here at the Merrell Center Wednesday.

SFA (22-8) will play Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in the tournament semifinals at 6 p.m. tonight.

Food for Thought

Life Savers got their signature shape by accident, when the machine employed to press out a standard circular mint malfunctioned, inadvertently punching a hole in each.

The Hershey's Kiss got its name from the puckering sound made by the manufacturing equipment as chocolate was dropped onto the conveyor belt during the production process.

While making cookies for her hotel guests one evening, Ruth Wakefield lacked the powdered cocoa called for in the recipe, so she substituted tiny bits of chopped chocolate in its place. Unexpectedly, the chocolate pieces did not melt in baking, but, rather, held their shape, softening only slightly to a creamy texture. She served the cookies anyway and named them Toll House after the inn she owned.
