"Sin" ftot mad once but quickly put'hfcr foot on her temper and that wad that. Willie Mac Cooper played the best game of her young life and contributed jwmightfully to the uphill drive which put tho Statesville team one point ahead by the half. Jurney wast sparkling all the way in tho battle to put Hickory out of tho championship running. Wilkins played a great defensive game as did Dotson and Allison. Gibbs and Rankin were trying hard but lady luck's face was turned against them. The Hickory team looked grout and certainly would have won had not the Statesville team been playing "ch inspired ball. Captain Cashion, Moser, M. Shuford, Little, Hall, nnd Summey know a lot of good basket- ball and made Statesville fight for every inch they gained. There is not much to say about the boys' 40 to 6 victory over Statesville. The local lads received quite an ovation when they scored their first point when Hickory had 16. The high school band helped keep a packed house entertained. They dish out some good music.
