Morris wins
Reno pool tourney

Hawaii's Rodney Morris won the Reno Open Pool Tournament at the Sands Regency Hotel and Casino last week.

Morris topped the field of 270 players and pocketed the first-place prize of $12,000.

He beat Nick Varner in the finals twice -- 9-1 and 9-8.

Morris also beat Johnny Archer 9-6, Jose Parica 9-3 and U.S. Open champion Corey Duel 9-7 on his way to the finals.

Morris is the head pro at Hawaiian Brian's Billiards, which hosts the $10,000 Aloha Open Pool Tournament tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.

Pipeline Masters on hold again

Gusty winds and torrential rain forced the organizers of the Xbox Gerry Lopez Pipeline Masters to postpone the start of the event again yesterday.

The holding period for the Association of Surfing Professionals specialty event is Dec. 17. It's the third leg of the Vans Triple Crown.

The event will be broadcast on NBC-TV on Dec. 23 at 10 a.m. Hawaii time. The show will feature this year's competition and highlights from the last 30 years.
