Palm Beach Post, Wednesday, December 8, 1976-E3 1 1 Gardens Upsets Suncoast On Wilder 's Free Throw r " win the game because we weren't being overpowered." The Gators were aided by the Chargers' foul problems. Starters Benny Goldwire and Steve Holmes fouled out and Anthony Carter picked up three early in the second period. "You can't win with your starters on the bench," losing coach Lloyd McCleese said. "We were in so much foul trouble at the half I told them to let them go past them if it Trcsant getting a foul. "We are a much stronger team than they are. If we have our first five on the floor they can't stay with us. The game was all right even though we lost. We're still a good team." Wilder's free throw attempts were set up when the Gators were playing for the last shot with the score 59-59. Wilder, who scored 11 points, drove the baseline and was fouled by Chuck Paldo. By KARL GULBRONSEN Post Sports Writtr PALM BEACH GARDENS - Alton Wilder was having a miserable night at the free-throw line. Palm Beach Gardens' 6-foot-4 center missed his first three attempts but things got better. With just one second remaining Wilder, hit the second of two attempts to give Gardens a 60-59 upset over Suncoast last night. "Wow," said winning coach Sam Watson, "that's a tough way to win the first one. But I'll take it." It was the Gators' first win of the young season after three straight defeats. The loss dropped Suncoast to 1-1. The game was close all the way with Suncoast leading after the first period, 19-18. The game was tied at the half, 37-37. "I looked at the statistics sheet at halftime," Watson said, "and I saw that we were beating them in everything. I just told them to go out and The Gators were successful in shutting off the middle and stopping Carter. The sophomore guard finished with six points. Goldwire was tops for the Chargers with 17 and Earlie Brown added 15. "We were getting hurt in the first half by Carter going in the middle," Watson said. "And we picked up a lot of fouls when he dumped off or shot. You can't play him too tight because of his quickness. We loosened up and that took away the middle for them." The Gators' Willie Shelton had the job of covering Carter and the 5-10 guard had help from Larry Williams.

"I would prefer if we had more balanced scoring, but if I have to score for us to win, I will." Mustang coach Floyd Andrews doesn't know if Mitchell can maintain his extraordinary pace. And he won't be that concerned if he doesn't. "Thirty-five is nice to see and I'll gladly take it, but I don't know if he has to score that well consistently for us to win," Andrews said. "I know I wouldn't want to lose him for very long, but I feel pretty comfortable with about eight players. And Mitchell does a lot more than just score." Frank Stallworth added 12 points for the Mustangs and Bobby Brooks came off the bench to get eight. Mike Green was the only Ram in double figures, and he just made it with 10. The Rams had short-lived leads twice in the second quarter before By JOE HART Post Sports Writer It is becoming increasingly obvious that in order to beat North Shore's basketball team, Darryl Mitchell must be brought down to earth. Mitchell was out of this world again last night, scoring 35 points and grabbing eight rebounds. As a result, Twin Lakes was sent into orbit by the talented Mustangs, 80-58. Mitchell has scored 84 points in three games and not surprisingly, the Mustangs are 3-0. Twin Lakes dropped to 1-2 by virtue of its inability to contain the 6-foot-4 junior. Mitchell was much more than a one-way player against the Rams, who -stayed in contention until a disastrous third quarter. He hit on 15 of 18 shots from the field, had several nice assists and played more than his share of defense. "My best game is going to the boards because the guy guarding me only Any American 9 NATIONWIDE LIMITED WARRANTY Monro-Matica will last in normal use as long as you own your car, or Firestone will replace them on proof of purchase from Firestone, charging only for installation. the Mustangs pulled away to a 41-33 halftime edge. Twin Lakes got within five, 41-36, early in the second half, but then went six minutes without scoring. The Mustangs scored 19 points in that span, seven by Mitchell, to take a 60-36 lead and make the fourth quarter nothing more than a scrimmage. "I'm impressed with a victory, but we're still not doing a lot of things right," Andrews said. "But I guess we're doing about as well as we should be for this time of the season."

The teams were tied in field goals with 23 each but the difference came at the line where the home team got 30 chances while Cardinal Newman got only seven free-throw opportunities. A controversial play in the final period eventually produced a series of technical fouls and six points for Gibbons. It started when the Crusaders claimed Tony Raich was tripped while moving upcourt by John Richards but no foul was called. Cardinal Newman objected and the technicals started. The game was tight all the way with the winners unable to gain any clear-cut advantage until the avalanche of free throws late in the game. Cardinal Newman led, 8-7, at the end of the first period and left the floor with a 23-21 halftime advantage. The game was tied, 33-33 going into the final eight minutes and was deadlocked at 49-49 in the last period.
