Jerry Smith may or may not be headed back to the Armor Sunday. His 10-day contract runs out at midnight, giving the Nets a choice of keeping him for a second 10-day or signing someone else, either from the D-League or elsewhere.

If he goes back down, he'll be rejoining a happy bunch in Springfield. With players like Smith and Jeff Foote going up and down, the Armor's biggest asset, its chemistry, had been hurt lately. Then, Saturday night, they beat the East-leading Canton Charge, who had won seven straight, with a furious third quarter rally.

The most likely call-ups, Foote, ex-Net Dennis Horner and JamesOn Curry, helped lead a furious third quarter rally against the Charge.

Foote, the seven-footer, had 15 points, including eight straight in the third. Six Armor players finished in double figures. Alan Anderson, who the Nets worked out in February, had 30 and Quinton Ross, the ex-Net, had eight for Canton.
