Chickasaws Third Pleasant Trip For All Concerned By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor A female fan was standing with the small group of Blytheville High School supporters outside McClellan High School throughout the opening period. Robinson contributed field-goals and a foul Ben three added two two-pointers to Bell's shot while Stewart Jerome second field goal lo give the Scrambling, ball-stealing am an increase in fouls marked the final six minutes of the game. Applying the pressure defense once more, the Chicks were able to grab enough loose balls in Little Rock last night as she I visitors their first, quarter mar- [ to offset the shooting of Ronnie and others waited for a charter-1 gin. ! and Jim Roberson and Nix. Robed bus to be loaded. "I sure enjoyed the game," she remarked to Dwight Williams, head coach of the Chickasaws basketball team. "I did too," Williams replied. A brief conversation, but the .best way possible to sum up the .just-completed 55-38 victory by the Chickasaws over the host Lions. Williams had several reasons for having enjoyed the win, third in a row for his ball club. The smaller Chicks outre- bounded the taller losers 40-28. This fact caused the winning .coach to add, "they should have outrebounded us at least by that much of a margin." .. .He could look with delight on the excellent foul-shooting per- cgntage which found the Chicks • converting their first ten at' temps and winding up with 15 ; of,18. '. A third enjoyable result was ; the shooting percentage from . the field as the Chickasaws re'. gistered 20 two-pointers. : "Outrebounding them 40-28, : getting 85 percent of our fouls and shooting 46 percent from the floor, that ought to win you • some ball games," was the way : Williams summarized his plea', sure a few moments later as • the bus pulled away from the : gymnasium. : "It's about time we made : some of those fouls," Williams , had told his players earlier in I the dressing room," but defense was the name of the game tonight, that's what won the • ball game for us, I'll tell you I that." I How correct he was. * * * .The Chickasaws came out for the first eight minutes of play and in that time held the Lions to four points while garnering 14 themselves. Aubrey Bell netted the first fielder within 40 seconds of the game's start, and playing a pressure defense, the Chicks Wiere able to control the ball for over j inson closed out the scoring as a field he netted two free throws with The Lions were held five minutes without goal between forward Pete Nix's i four seconds remaining, first shot and his second success I «i>d sooner play a game like with 1:45 left in the period. I that and hold a team to under In that interval, the Cliicka-uo points and score like we die saws were charged with only I than let a team get 60 or so one personal foul despite their close guarding. Bell opened the next period two field goals to complete the Chicks first half scoring. They retired with a 25-15 lead. Jimmy Moore and Mike Huff had seen action in the second quarter, but Williams started his original five of Bell, Beard, Jerome, .Robinson and Joe Ellis as the second half got underway. Ellis opened the scoring with a foul shot but the Lions show- ith two fielders and Beard ad- ers a g re ed with him as they re- ded another before McClellan broke into the scoring column. This first breakthrough came after two minutes and 31 seconds of play, the Lions getting only six points for almost ten and a while we'd have to get 70 or 75 to win," Williams commented later on the bus. And the play- half minutes of action. membered the lack of height on their own squad and the tallness of some of their future foes. * * Bell led both teams with nine field goals and two fouls for . 120 markers. All agreed that it Beard contributed a foul shotj had been , ljs stronge st effort of and a jump shot for three more , he season markers while Jerome^ netted Aub hjmsel{ pleased with his defense, holding his man to half his normal output. Jerome added 14 points, Robinson 10, Beard 9, Ellis and Moore 1. * * + Defense marked the junior varsity battle as well. The junior Chickasaws edged the Lion Cubs 41-35 after almost losing ed some life as they bucketed • *» three field goals while the Chickasaw defense moved back from the pressure-type maneuver. Well-timed assists from Bell and Beard enabled Robinson and Bell to interrupt the McClellan streak. Robinson had also added a 15-footer for two points upping the lead to 28-21 after the Lions had moved to a 21-26 deficit following their brief flurry. Jerome and Moore also contributed to the point total seconds before the third period ended, the Chicks in front, 37-23. The Lions had been held to eight points in the eight minutes. The McClellan squad began to show more life after the Chickasaws moved to a 19-point lead in the opening two minutes of the final quarter. Jodie Gude with 6, Terry Gurley's 4, and Charles Hall's 4 had led the first half assault as the junior varsity concentrated on a defensive game. McClellan reversed things in the third quarter as they held th Blytheville squad to a mere one point. Meanwhile, they had crept to 27-24. The fourth quarter was a seesaw affair. The Chicks never were headed but they had some anxious moments. Final tallies in the scorebook showed Gude leading with 10 points, followed by John Rose, Gurley, Dee Human, Jim Ross, Hall and Casey Tetley all with I, Newell Jerome, Tommy Tompkins and John Germain, 2 each and Richard Brewer with 1. Others who saw action Jeff Redden, Terry Brown and Ricky Newcomb.

Choir Boy Hopes Fighting Pays OSCAR BONAVENA, left, and JIMMY for their heavyweight elimination bout this ELLIS both show the strain as they prepared afternoon. Chamberlain Refuses To Just Wilt Away LOUISVILLE, Ky, (AP) -. Argentina's Oscar Bonavena and home town boy Jimmy Ellis climbed into the ring this af-1 ternoon in quest, of a final berth j in the World Boxing Association J heavyweight tournament. I And each fighter planned to! go about it in completely differ-1 et ivays. i Bonavena, the outspoken j South American champion from Buenos Aires, is somewhat slow and plodding, but packs a big! wallop in his left fist. j Ellis, a former choir boy and the son of a Baptist minister, is a complete contrast. He is a speedy, classic boxer, having learned his business as a sparring partner for former champion Cassius Clay. So, the fight matched the brute strength of Bonavena against the speed and finesse of Ellis. The oddsmakers went along with Ellis' 'skills and made him an 8-5 favorite. The fighters battled for a spot opposite the winner of the Jerry Quarry-Thad Spencer bout. Till finalists will meet for the WBA heavyweight championship, declared vacant when Clay refused to be inducted into tha Army. Both fighters predicted victory. Bonavena said he would knock out Ellis in the second round. Ellis didn't predict the round but said he was confident of victory. BOSTON (AP) - Wilt Cham- rerlain, the greatest scorer in National Basketball Association listory had bad news for rivals ; oday—he's going to do more shooting. K I need to shoot in older to win, I will shoot," the 7-foot-l Chamberlain said Friday night after scoring 52 points in the Philadelphia 76ers' 133-109 vic- :ory over Seattle at Boston Garden. 'My offense has not really >een good," he admitted. "I have been chastised for not shooting more. And I think we may have lost a couple of games because I didn't shoot." Chamberlain, who concentrated on playmaking as much as scoring in leading the 76ers to le NBA championship last year, hit on 22 of 29 field goal attempts against Seattle en route to his biggest point production of the season. He managed only eight of 30 free hrows, setting an NBA record if 22 misses. He held the old mark of 18, set against Syracuse n 1960. "If we are losing, it rests j squarely on me to do something about it," he said. "Of course, I can't do it alone. I need help 'rom the other guys. The thing s Tm going to have to shoot more when necessary." The Celtics shaded Los Angeles 123-119 in the nightcap of he Boston Garden twin bill and remained one game ahead of 'hiladelphia in the East. Elsewhere, San Francisco drubbed St. Louis 124-101 to tie the Hawks for the Western Division lead, Baltimore trimmed Cincinnati 123-109 and Chicago edged New York 102-100.

Jones scored 21 points, helping offset the Lakers' 1-2 punch of Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, who hit for 29 and 27, respectively. Nate Thurmond connected for 33 points in pacing the Warriors to their eighth straight victory and 17lh in the last 20 games.

Sloan finished with 23 points, two less than teammate Bob Boozer. Willis Reed topped New York scorers with 26, but missed three of four free throws in the last two minutes. Leibowitz, acquired from Pittsburgh Wednesday, and Johnson, picked up from Kentucky Thursday, tallied 20 and 17 points, respectively, as New Jersey came from behind to whip the Chaparrals.
