C of 7-9. 2123. Feb. Appears Cinch To Win Grown Two more games remain on the schedule for the Class B Northwest Conference's leading scorer and it appears as it Fred BJackman of Mission of St. Ignatius Ignatius has wrapped up the scoring scoring championship ior the 195657 195657 season. That is, if he doesn't completely completely fall apart on the floor. Blackman's Blackman's closest competitor, Arlle Burk, is 18 points behind Blackman's Blackman's league leading total of 229, hut Burk has just one game left this weekend ; to improve on his 211. The only oilier player within reasonable striking distance of Blackman is Thompson Falls' Boyd Davis, who has collected 193 points in 12 games, the same number as Blackman. . Lihby's Chuck Haines, the No. 4 man, could have been in easy reach of Blackman, but an in.iury forced him to miss one game. and with only one more game left for him, t looks as if his total o f . 178 won't be good enough to over- nke the leader. Number 5 man on the scoring list is Warren Richwine. of Honan Honan with », total of 176. Richwine appears destined to finish higher in the derby since he lias two more games to Bark's and Haines' one. Surprisingly, Columbia Tails and Whitefish, two of the teams fighting for second' place, each have four players in the top 25 scorers. Columbia. Falls has Alien A]- brecht .(116), Don Gimbel (105), Roger Miller (104)'and Don Knudson Knudson (95). Whitefish's top quartet is Gary Smith (130), Jim Baker (120), Mike McNeilly (107) and Lauren Buckland (93). Blacfcman has garnered the most field goals with 86 while Bob St. Peter of Eureka has netted netted a leading total' of 62 free throws. Teammate Burk is right behind -with 61 free tosses. Blackman is also tops in average average points-per-game. He has scored an average of 19.1 each game. Second place Burk has a 16.2 mark and Davis has 16.1 for 12 games.
