December 19, 1976 PAGE 14 HAYS DAILY NEWS Lions Use Free Throws To DownTMP Monarchs, 64-50 One of the better exhibitions of free throw shooting was displayed by the Lyons Lions Friday night at the Field House. The Lions hit an amazing 86 per cent of their free throws in downing the Thomas More Prep Monarchs in a Mid-State League battle, 64-50. "We put a lot of extra work in on our free throw shooting." said the Lyons' coach Don Smith, after his Lions broke up a close game by hitting 15 of 16 gift shots during the final eight minutes of the game. "But I think our experience did show up some," explained the Lyons coach who has all but one member from last season's team back. "And they had to be hurting some without their No. 2 scorer," Smith said as the Monarchs' senior forward missed the game because of the flu. "We've been mighty lucky so far, as we also beat Russell, when it was minus one of its starters," added Smith. While the Lions were red hot at the line, the Monarchs were just the opposite, ice cold. "I don't know what to say, we have each player take at least 25 free throws during practice, and they don't do that bad. But in a game they just seem to clutch," was TMP's coach Al Billinger's explanation of the Monarchs' bad free throwing. For the game, the Monarchs hit only six of 16 for a poor 37 per cent. The contest was much closer than the final score indicated. After a nip-and-tuck affair throughout the first three quarters, and with the Monarchs leading most of the time, the talented Lyons crew made their move with 4:36 remaining in the game. Trailing by two, 46-44, the Lions, although not showing much polish but still getting the job done, outscored the Monarchs during the final four and a half minutes, 20-4 to turn the rough-and-tumble battje into a run a way. Of the 20 points during the scoring spree, 12 came at the line, on 13 attempts. During the first three quarters, the biggest lead enjoyed by the Monarchs Was seven points at the short of the second quarter. But the Lions quickly bounced back, scoring the next seven points to deadlock the game at 16-all, with 5:51 remaining in the second quarter. At the end of the first half, the Monarchs were holding on to a shaky two point lead, 2927. After the score was tied twice during the first two minutes of the third quarter, the Monarchs put together a five point scoring sput to take a 36-31 lead with 2:49 remaining. Unable to shake the pesky Lions, the Monarchs had to settle for a three point lead, 4037, at the end of the third quarter. the Lions started off the fourth quarter scoring the first five points to take at 42-40 lead. The Monarchs then regained the lead, but it was shortlived as the visitors then put together their 20 point rally. The Lions'" Marlyn Pincin took game scoring honors with 21 points. TMP's Terry Kisner was close behind with20. The only other Monarch to hit the double figure scoring was Terry Karlin who had an even dozen. The Lions, doing most of their scoring on layups, hit 20 of 50 from the field. The Monarchs, taking some bad shots, especially in the fourth quarter, hit on 22 of 69. The setback left the Monarchs with an overall record of 2-3, while the Lions, leaders of the Mid-State League, are not 3-0. The Monarchs' B-team also came out on the short end as it was defeated, 56-48. B-team scoring.
