From AP and WDL reports

MIDLOTHIAN - The Arlington Lady Cougars (13-3, 3-0) went on a 12-0 run during the third quarter to hand the Midlothian Lady Panthers (8-9, 0-2) its second consecutive district loss.

Junior Post Amber Doolittle lead all scores with a game-high 14 points leading the Lady Cougars to a 50-25 victory Tuesday night in Midlothian.

The inside presence of Doolittle and junior post Alex Adekunie (6 points) were too much of the smaller Lady Panthers to handle.

Despite being down 11-2 going into the first quarter, The Lady Panthers made a valiant attempt to get back in the game. Sophomore guard Cameron Hartson, who finished with a team-high 9 points, led the second quarter surged.

“She’s is always going 100 miles per hour on the court,” Midlothian Head Coach Stephanie Upshaw said about Hartson. “She had a good game tonight.”

The Lady Panther were outscored 26-11 in the second half securing a third consecutive district victory for the Lady Cougars.

The Lady Panthers will go for its first district win by taking on the district leading Ennis Lady Lions (3-0) on Friday night in Ennis.

IRVING (AP) — Forget the standings. The real star power of the Dallas Cowboys was revealed in the list of Pro Bowl selections. Sure, Terrell Owens made the cut Tuesday, as did Jessica Simpson’s new squeeze, Tony Romo. Reliable tight end Jason Witten — remember his long gain without a helmet earlier this season? — and hulking left tackle Flozell Adams were picked, too. By Sports Writer Jaime Aron.


(AP) The topic of his talk to a convention of Texas high school baseball coaches next month was going to be how to stay in shape. It took on a whole new meaning when their guest speaker, Roger Clemens, was given a starring role in the Mitchell Report. The greatest pitcher of his generation denied again Tuesday that he ever used performance-enhancers of any kind. But Clemens did it from a safe distance again, this time in a statement, issued by his agent instead of his lawyer. Yet he found time early in the afternoon to pick up the phone and call one of those coaches to say he'd still come and talk if they'd have him. By Sports Columnist Jim Litke.


HOUSTON — Billy Gillispie has accomplished something Rick Pitino also did in his first year at Kentucky. He's lost four games in a row. By Sports Writer Chris Duncan.

AUSTIN — Texas slugged its way through a tough battle on its home court. Now comes a Top Ten test for the unbeaten Longhorns. D.J. Augustin scored 24 points and the fourth-ranked Longhorns beat Oral Roberts 66-56 on Tuesday night, a close game in a season full of blowouts. By Sports Writer Jim Vertuno.


EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — That third time, apparently, was the charm. Sent to a fourth straight shootout, the Oilers' luck finally ran out when Dallas' Sergei Zubov scored the only goal to end Edmonton's three-game shootout winning streak with a 2-1 Stars victory Tuesday night.


ATLANTA (AP) - Bill Parcells could become the Atlanta Falcons’ vice president of football operations, a role that would put him in charge of finding the team's next coach.

Parcells is considering an offer to join the team's front office, a person familiar with the negotiations said on condition of anonymity because talks were ongoing.

Rich McKay, the team’s president and general manager since December 2003, did not immediately return a phone message on Tuesday night.

The offer was first reported by

Falcons owner Arthur Blank declined comment when asked about Parcells late Tuesday night.

Parcells’ agent, Jimmy Sexton, did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.

Emmitt Thomas is 0-1 as Atlanta's interim head coach, a job he inherited when Bobby Petrino resigned suddenly a week ago. Petrino went 3-10 with the Falcons before taking the Arkansas job.

Parcells resigned in January after four years as the Dallas coach. During a 19-year career that also included coaching the New York Giants, New England Patriots and New York Jets, Parcells made it to three Super Bowls, winning twice with the Giants.

Known best for a gruff demeanor and colorful quotes, Parcells left coaching with the ninth-most wins in NFL history and a career record of 183-138-1. He was 34-32 in Dallas, including 0-2 in the postseason.

"I am in good health and feel lucky to have been able to coach in the NFL for an extended period of time," Parcells said when he left the Cowboys. "I leave the game and the NFL with nothing but good feelings and gratitude to all the players, coaches and other people that have assisted me in that regard."
