Only one starter returns from last season's aggregation, that being Aubrey Bell. This inexperience will be coupled with a lack of height, which can often mean the difference between a victory or a defeat. In a recent talk to the kiwan- Is Club, Williams pointed out that a young club can be a surprising club if the necessary attitudes and experience jell. + * * Williams has seen his teams finish among the top ten in the state in three of his four previous years here, and while not promising such a finish this season, he did say that "we feel vre can be a winning ball club, we teach our boys that they can be a winner, and we believe that we will have some good quickness and may be able even to use some pressure defense." Biggest man on the squad at present is Joe Ellis, who stands 6-1 l k and weighs around 180 pounds. Williams pointed out to the Kiwanians six ideas he and Dix- qn, and Alan S.tolt, who also will assist in the coaching, try to get across to the young men in their care—preparation, dedication, discipline, cooperation, loyalty and motivation. Williams explained preparation to mean that he tries to convince the boys they are ready, after extensive practice sessions, to meet any foe and are able to whip them. Dedication, he said, means the players must be willing to pay the price if they want to be successful. Discipline involves the spirit of sacrifice, to give up other things one likes in order to win. He said "Winning is not everything, but wanting to is." Cooperation is another way of saying that it takes an unselfish person lo , be a good ball player while loyalty enables the young man to remain true to himself, his school, teammales, parents and coaches, he said. Williams explained motivation as the coach striving 'o get all of the details of the game to the boys and teaching them to learn from their mistakes] while instructing them on ways of learning to come back when i they are down. i * + + ( Williams announced that there j would be a practice game to- i night with Hayti High School, with a B team game beginning at six o'clock and the varsity; clash at 7:30 here. There will be no admission and everyone .is invited to this I sneak preview of the newest! edition of the Chickasaws. The game will also serve as I a showcase for several new j rules and/or rules revisions which will be in effect. Quoted from the October issue of the official bulletin ol the Arkansas Athletic Association, the rule changes read as follows: Court diagram — Four new marks on court; 28 feet from end lines toward center division line; Lines are at right angles to side lines; three feet long and two inches wide; same color as court lines; These lines indicate the mid-court areas. Recommend padding on recl- bMkbaardf. On under-i THREESOME—Head Coach Dwight Williams is flanked by Alan "toll and Jim Dixon who will serve as his assistants in directing the basketball fortunes of the Blytheville High School team in the 1967-68 season which officially gels underway on Friday evening with a doubleheader against West Memphis in the local gym. The Chickasaws will meet Hayti in a practice game tonight, beginning at six o'clock. '(Courier News Photo) not turned in.
