Only the toi eight teams from each AA/ conference are eligible for the state tournament. Fayetteville coach Joe Krctschmar had been involved in three previous coin flips as a .result of ties for positions , higher in-'the stan- alling only four caroms short if Bob Noland's school record 5, set last year. West has now .cored 20 points or m o r e in hrce of the last six games. His jack-to-back three-point plays ate in the second quarter kept Rogers from increasing a lead vhich once reached eight points, 29-21. Then in the final icriod, playing with four fouls on him, West drove for a lay-up, stole the ball and dribbled the length of the court for another, and then blocked a hook shot sy Rogers' Mike Jones. Tony Childress' performance, n its way, was nearly as im pressive. On consecutive Rogers dings, and now he has won four flips: all Fayetteville started .its five seniors last night,, going with its 16th different starting lineup of the season. Jackie Davis who came back from a fool injury, started for the first time since the eighth grade. He di not score in the game, but die hand out several assists. Of the other four starters, three playei their best game of the year. Charlie West led the way with 20 points .and 21 rebounds possessions quarter, he in the established fourth defensive position on a driving Jim Leis, drawing two charging fouls while letting Leis run over him twice. Shaken up after each blow, Childress nevertheless sank all four free throws. Allyn Donaubauer scored one field goal and assisted on two others in the first period, stole the ball twice, and then did a good defensive job on Mark Jones in the second half. Jones scored 18 points for Rogers in bu onl the first two periods, Donaubauer held him to two points in the third quarte and six in the fourth. The fifth senior, Terry Gulley, started ou veil, scoring eight' points and (locking two shots in the first line minutes, but he then licked up his fourth foul and lever re-entered the game. The reason was that juniors dike Kretschmar , and Neil 3ruton played so well after coming off the bench. For the ;ame, Kretschmar, Brulon, and ;bildress each hit two field Joals and five free throws, (retschmar scored seven of his nine points in the third quarter, while Bruton did the same in the final period. In fact, Bruton did much of lis damage in a one-minute ;pan, after Mark Jones had tied the game for the seventh and last time at 44. First lie sank a free throw. Then he stole the ball right out of Jones' hands and quickly hit a jumper at the lead with another steal, setting up West's heroics^ Rogers led 16-14 after one quarter and 31-26 at t h e half even though no player besides Jones scored more than five points for the Mounties in the opening two periods.'The" dif ference was that Rogers wa. 13 of 18 from the free Ihrov line while Fayelteville was twi of four.
