MONDAY, AUGUST 8. 1988 -THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR- B-5 3 J "NCtfr Local team upends bcarborough By CURT CAVIN STAR STAf F WRITER On a hot August day. the Indianapolis team burned its Scarborough rivals for a victory in the 16th annual Peace Games. The win evened the overall series at eight and was one of the Hoosier team's most convincing wins. Indianapolis won 10 of 15 sports this weekend but took 11 of 14 here In 1986. With temperatures soaring into the 90s, there was no place more uncomfortable for the Canadians Sunday than Nlcoson Hall on the University of Indianapolis campus. There the Hooslers blistered Scarborough In basketball by winning all eight games In the four age divisions. Around the city, other local teams were putting the heat on the Canadians, as well. Indiana-polls also won every division in baseball and volleyball. On top of that, the Hooslers took athletics (cross country and track and field), cycling, horseshoes, soccer, softball, tennis and wrestling. Scarborough, however, won its 16th straight badminton competition. The team's other wins came In bowling, chess, swimming and table tennis. By winning basketball, Indianapolis continued Its dominance in the sport. The Hooslers have never lost in the 16 Peac e Games and have won all but two games in the past three years. While the older divisions received the most attention, It was actually the 11-14 girls that secured the basketball win. The 38-24 victory gave Indianapolis its fifth victory and ended any chance of a Canadian comeback. "There's certainly a big difference In the experience levels," said Scarborough's basketball chairman while watching Sunday's action. He needed an exclamation mark because the Hooslers were never threatened In the two-day tournament and several of the wins were terribly lopsided. Noble Duke of Cathedral scored 30 points this weekend to help the 15-18 boys post 87-55 and 88-71 victories. Broad Ripple's Walter Shellman added 24. "We had them under control all the way." said the 5-8 Duke, who had a spectacular second-half dunk Sunday. "We knew they couldn't come back because they didn't have enough outside shooting. "That's not to say they didn't have any talent, but we've just got so much experience." Duke's team, champions of a recent preliminary tournament, played strong In Jumping to a quick 7-0 lead. It was 22-6 after one quarter and Indianapolis merely matched Scarborough the rest of the game. Duke was a big reason why the Canadians couldn't catch the local team. During one 3-on-2 fast break. Duke had the ball on the run and was quickly approaching the free throw line. He then bounced a nifty no-look pass behind his back to Pike's Marcus Johnson who threw in a rim-rocking, two-handed dunk. "We didn't really care if we won. we Just wanted to have fun," Duke said. "That's what it's all about. That's why we're here." Wanda Hatton led the girls 15-18 team with a pair of strong games. The Tech graduate scored 17 as the Hoosiers rolled to a 59-25 win Sunday. She had 16 in Saturday's 68-33 romp. James Franklin led the 11-14' boys with 16 points In the team's second victory, a 59-50 game, the closest of this weekend's games. Indianapolis wasn't as dominant in tennis as in basketball, . but the victory may have been, sweeter. The local team ended a 9-year drought when Cal Koch defeated Tyler Fee, 6-4. 6-4 In the boys' 15-16 division. Indianapolis end-' ed up winning 30 matches to 23. r !

CONSIDERING THEIR equipment, the fourth- and fifth-place finishers, both Indianapolis residents, couldn't have asked for much more. Tony Bettenhausen was 10 laps down but In fourth at the finish In his year-old Lola. Phil Krueger. meanwhile, took his 1986 March to fifth place. And 52-year-old two-time Indy winner Gordon Johncock was sixth In his first race since Indy '87.
