.WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11 197( TUCSON D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Caballeros shift into high gear PAGE 51 By STEVE CHANDLER Citizen Sportswriler Three weeks ago Flowing Wells High School basketball coach Lee Engbretson knew if he didn't make some radical changes, the season would be lost. At that time.

Tucson defeated Amphi, 69-64 last night at Rincon High School's gym. scoring, so Engbretson shifted his emphasis, asking his team for a new and total commitment to playing defense. Last night that three-week commitment paid dramatic dividends as Flowing Wells upset arch-rival Canyon del Oro, 64-63, before a noisy Caballero home court crowd. "We felt that the only way we were going to beat them would be through tough defense," said Engbretson. "U was defensive intensity tonight that was the key, Three Flowing Wells players shared the task of guarding CDO's high-scoring forward Kyle Doda, who had scored 26 and 27 his last two times out. In holding him to 15 points, it made the difference in the game. Jeff Jones guarded Doda until Jones got into foul trouble, then Matt Hays and Scott Sanderlin stepped in to continue the pressure on the Dorado star. "After Jones got in foul trouble, Hays did a great job," said Engbretson. "His defense was just what we needed." Hays also picked up the outside shooting slack when Jones went to the bench and scored 10 points as the Caballeros defeated CDO in a regular season game for the first time since the 1972-73 season and the first time since Engbretson's been coaching. Jon Ziegler once again led the Flowing Wells offensive attack, scoring 24 points and pulling down 17 rebounds to lead all players in both categories. "We've switched offenses in the last couple of weeks," said Engbretson. "We've changed so that we're getting more movement toward Ziegler, and he's moving more to get to the ball. He really carried us for a couple of stretches tonight." The Caballeros' boost in strength as a defensive team has been the partial responsibility of freshman coach Rett Wilbur. Known throughout the city as an effective teacher of defensive basketball, Wilbur has been working with the team for the past three weeks on a half-court man-to-man defense that has helped turn the team into a contender in the AA-South. Last night's victory over third-place CDO elevated the Cabs into a tie for fourth with Globe. Flowing Wells' league record is now 4-5, only a game behind CDO, which has a 5-4 conference mark. CDO was, in Engbretson's words, "a little bit flat right now. And (Mark) Jung is not yet the factor that he's going to be at the end of the sea- Jung is a 6-foot-ll sophomore who is slowly returning to action after missing most of the season with a severely sprained ankle.
