The Denver Broncos have their Three Amigos, the Washington Redskins have their Hogs, the Bullets have Manute and Muggsy, and Prince George's County has Radar, Snake and The Louisville Leaper.

Fortunately for opposing high school basketball teams, Henry (Radar) Hall of Parkdale, Jay (Snake) Bias of Northwestern and Michael (The Louisville Leaper) Tate are not teammates.

"If we played together, we'd be exciting, that's for sure," said Tate, a 6-foot-6 junior with a vertical leap of 42 inches. "We've played together before on youth teams and one ball was enough. We passed it around and everyone scored. If we were on one high school team, we would average 100 points a game."

Entirely possible. Their friendship and desire to excel have inspired the three to wage a scoring bee that has produced at least one 53-point, two 51-point and a half-dozen 40-point single-game efforts.

"You are talking about three fine players who could help any team in this country," said one college coach trying to recruit two of them. "They have good skills, especially shooting. They can fill it." An Extraordinary Eye

The 6-foot, 190-pound Hall picked up the nickname Radar because of his outside shooting ability. He has had the green light to shoot since he was a freshman and, had the three-point rule been in effect before this season, Hall might already have set some local records.

Crossland Coach Earl Hawkins said that if three-pointers counted last year, "Hall would have scored 65 against us instead of 42."

"I'm a shooter. That distance {19 feet 9} is my range but, actually, I shoot farther out than that," said Hall, whose team is 8-8 in the tough Prince George's AA league. "If I'm open, I take the shot. Before we play {against one another}, we call and talk trash, who's going to score what. Mike and Jay are big guys and dunk all the time. I shoot jumpers.

"When we played Oxon Hill, Mike told me he was going to chew up our big men," Hall said. "I told him his guards would get fried too." Hall scored 51 points, Tate 39.

Hall, who scored 53 against High Point, is the top scorer in the area, averaging 37.8 through 13 games. He also led the area in three-pointers made with 47, making eight of them on each of three occasions. Parkdale's coach, Col. Charles Thompson, said Hall is a blue-chip athlete but at times off the court "doesn't apply himself."

"He has been so good in basketball, he hasn't allowed himself to be the good student," said Thompson, who suspended Hall for three games because of missed practices.

"He can be one of the best all-around ever. He has worked on improving all parts of his game. He has always been able to shoot, either from outside or inside. He's tough to defend."

After playing only a few games as a freshman, Hall averaged 28 points as a sophomore and 28.5 last year. He shoots better than 55 percent from the floor, despite a propensity to take 24-foot jump shots, hits 85 percent from the foul line and has almost doubled his assists and steals averages from his junior year.

"I want to be the complete player," Hall said. "We have a better team than last year and I would like to win a few more games, hopefully get to the playoffs. I had a couple of personal problems and missed those three games, but everything is fine now. I have a lot of confidence in my ability and when I play I'm determined to do what I want to do. I don't feel anyone can stop me. If that's cocky, I'm cocky." 'I Love to Play'

Tate, blessed with outstanding jumping capability, also has a 51-point game to his credit and, like Hall, would like to see his team (6-9) win more.

"I try to use my jumping ability to my advantage, either on inside shots or on jump shots," said Tate, who averages 31.9 points and 12 rebounds. "Individually I'm having a good year but it's frustrating because we aren't winning as many games as I would like. I know we have a young team and it takes time."

Tate, who does most of his damage on inside shots and dunks, confesses he would like to beat out his buddies in the scoring race. But he says he would trade a few dunks and finger rolls for victories.

"I don't go out looking for points but I know I have to score for us to win," Tate said matter-of-factly. "I always play hard and I work for each point I get."

Oxon Hill Coach Carrington Smith isn't looking for apologies from Tate for shooting too much.

"Michael works hard for everything he gets and he isn't selfish," Smith said. "He has improved all of his skills and also is more intense out there. He rarely takes a bad shot and is always encouraging the other guys to keep playing hard."

As happens so often when a team has a high-scoring player, Crossland concentrated on stopping the other Clippers while Tate was scoring 37. Tate had 33 of his team's first 41 points in Oxon Hill's 91-66 loss.

Tate shoots 52 percent from the floor, 77 percent from the line. The muscular 17-year-old has improved defensively and developed the stamina to play an entire 32 minutes.

"I love to play this game and I don't think I have to prove anything to anyone," said Tate, who averaged 17 points and 14 rebounds as a freshman and 25 points and 15 rebounds last year. "I will tell the truth, I enjoy the limelight the same as Jay and Henry. But they keep my head together. When they leave {graduate}, I'll miss my amigos." No Longer in a Shadow

Bias is the self-proclaimed leader of the trio. The 6-6, 175-pound swing player, nicknamed for his twisting, agile moves in traffic, hasn't been asked to score 40 points a game. The defending Maryland Class AA champions have Derrick Curry, for one, to relieve Bias of some of the scoring burden.

Bias, virtually unstoppable when he sets up along the base line, trails his buddies with a 24.4-point average, but averages 11 rebounds, four blocks and three steals per game. His best for the year is 35 points against Oxon Hill and Tate and 35 again versus Parkdale and Hall.

"I'm sort of the leader and I had to get up for my games against them," Bias said. "It's nothing but good-natured competition. All of us are doing what we think is best for the team."

With Hall and Tate, that is scoring. Bias has adjusted to a new role, that of a teacher. But the once sullen senior still has to mature. Bias has been suspended at least three games for violating team rules last week. Coach Cornell Jones admitted Bias is the cornerstone of the team but said he had little choice but to shelve his star.

"No one is above an infraction of the team rules, not even Jay," Jones said. "It will hurt us, but it was something that had to be done."

Bias sat on the bench while his team lost at Friendly on Friday.

"I have to teach the young guys," he said. "In tight situations, I want the guys to listen to me. If they don't . . . well, I am the teacher and leader. In addition, I've worked on my game, trying to improve everything. I really have worked on my attitude and feel I've matured a lot since 10th grade. Actually, I like the new role."

Bias said he considers Hall and Tate stepbrothers. "They have always been there for me," Bias said. "When my brother {Len Bias} died {June 1986}, both were with me."

Bias said the cloud that has enveloped him since his brother's death has finally disappeared. The pressure of trying to live up to his brother, an All-Met at Northwestern, all-America at Maryland and the second player taken in the 1986 NBA draft (Boston), almost consumed him last year.

"I think people are finally beginning to recognize me as Jay and not Len's little brother," said Bias, who is interested in Syracuse, St. John's and Providence. "No one is comparing us anymore, no one is calling me little Bias. I feel I can play the game and people have finally begun to see that. Finally, that has blown over and I'm just plain old Jay. I can thank my stepbrothers for helping me through this, too.

"You know before the game, they are going to get their {points}," he said. "When any of us play, you are going to get a show."
