Greene Co. Here Chick asaws Seek Fifth Win Of Year By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor Several off-court highlights will feature tonight's basketball clash between the Blythevile High School Chickasaws and the Greene County Tech Eagles at .the Blytheville gym. Action will get underway at six o'clock when the junior varsities of both institutions clash prior to the varsity battle set for 7:30. Foremost of the added attractions will be the fact that Chickasaw Coach Dwight Williams will be sending his players against the school where he formerly coached. Williams came to Blytheville five seasons ago after a lengthy tenure at the Greene County institution. Speaking yesterday to a fellow coach via telephone, Williams made the remark that he felt the fact of his having once coached the Eagles would give the present squad an added incentive to try and knock off the Chickasaws. Another feature of the clash will be the return to Blytheville of'Tech Coach Jim Bohannon. Bohannpn was formerly head coach at North Little Rock and frequently tutored Wildcat teams in their battles with the Chickasaws. Out of coaching for approximately five years, Bohannon is now in his first year at Greene County. Besides the emotional and sentimental reasons, Williams is expecting a tough game for still other reasons. * * * The Eagles will be coming into the contest fresh from a suspenseful victory over powerful Leachville. The Lions fell to the Tech-men, 67-66 on a basket in the final second of play on Friday evening in a battle at Paragould. The loss was the first for Leachville in six games. Butch Hendrix, 5-7 junior, swished a 15-foot jump shot in desperation at the buzzer to give Tech its victory. Tech had led most of the way as Joe Stanfill netted 26 points but it needed Hendrix's heroics to take the decision. The win moved Tech's season COURIER NEWS B PAGE EIGHT H Tuesday, December 12, 1967 mark to 2-1, the other victory coming over Trumann after an opening loss to Forrest City. Joining Stanfill at a forward position for the Eagles tonight will be Roger Perry, a 6-2, 170- pound senior who with his partner and Larry Winberry make up a threesome who were starters for Tech last year. Mike Wilcox at guard and Ricky Harmon at center make up the balance of the starting five. Wilcox did start some games last season though he saw substitute action in the two clashes with Blytheville. Williams said he would "probably go with .the same starting lineup as I have so far this season, but I expect Tommy Tompkins, Jimmy Moore and Mike Huff to see lots of action." Starting Chicks will be Aubrey Bell, Stewart Jerome, Joe Ellis, Kenny Beard and Ben Robinson. Unlike Hall, whom the Chick- aswas defeated rather handily on Friday, the Eagles move the ball at a slower pace. "I wouldn't say they are a fast-breaking team," Williams stated, "But they do have some experienced men back, and they'll be out to get us, yon can be sure of that." Scouting reports show the Eagles take advantage of quick passes and jump shots, the latter usually coming from long to medium range. Wilcox is considered to be the best playmaker while his companions are considered good shooters, good dribblers and good passers. Defensively, Tech uses a 2-2-1 zone press with great effectiveness. They put this into practice against Leachville and pulled away by about eight points at one period of the third quarter. The Chicks should be buoyet by their strong showing against Hall. Routing the Little Rock Warriors 62-41, the Chicks were never pressed save for a brie: cold spell in the third period. Coming into tonight's game, Ben Robinson leads the scorinf parade for Blytheville, followed by Stewart Jerome. In five games, Robinson has poured in 73 points while Jerome has netted 68. This evenings action will be the last appearance at home for the Chickasaws until Dec 22. Following the Tech fracas Blytheville travels to North Little Rock and West Memphis be fore returning to the home cour on Friday, Dec. 22 to face a surprising strong Horace Mann con tingent. Papooses Win; Missco Play On By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor Employing what Coach Jack Goodman called, "a stunning ofrense and a devastating defense," the Blytheville Junior High B team handed Annie Camp of Jonesboro their first defeat of the season last night, 28-20. Everyone played for the eighth graders as they roared to their fourth win in five outings. Neal Brewer led the winners with 11 points but got important help from Ronnie Bisher with 9, Bob Porter, 3, Mike Brewer, 24, and Bob Payne, Johnny While, and Ricky Hoberson, 1 each. Coach Fred Mitchell described his ninth graders' 28-25 win as "the best game we have played thus far in the young season. It j gainst Turrell ' ..... ™ Blytheville was paced by Mike Johnson with 13 points as Mike McCall backed him up with 7. Other scoring showed Ray Bunch and Terry Peyton, 3 each, and Mike Julian, 2. Mitchell expressed thanks too for the crowd of fans who followed the team to Jonesboro. MISSCO High School began its annual Girls' Invitational Tournament last night with four first round games. Results showed DYESS routing Marion Jrs., 58-12; DELL SRS. dropping a heartbreaker to Marion Srs., 40-39; DELL JRS., likewise losing a close contest to Earle Jrs., 32-27 and SHAWNEE tripped Earle Srs., 53-41.

Breaking Of A Slump Pleases Lou, Fans By GEORGE BOWEN BALTIMORE (AP) - The return of Lou Michaels' field goal kicking touch for the Baltimore Colts in time for Sunday's game at Los Angeles is akin to Ted Williams coming out of a batting slump on the eve of the World Series, The comparison comes from Michaels. He had suffered—and so had Colt fans—during a spell when he made only nine of 25 field goal attempts. And, of all things, ha missed two extra] points. Even a left-footed hooter such as Michaels isn't supposed to he that erratic. Last Sunday Michaels had a perfect day, three for three. It was his third straight Sunday without a miss and the 10 field goals in a row are a record by a Colt. "Although I don't want to compare myself with these sth- letes," Michaels said, "I felt it wasn't any different than Stan Musial, Ted Williami or a great hitter going a couple of games without a bit. Gosnell Change Joe Bratcher, coach of the GOSNELL Junior High basketball squad, announced yesterday there will be a slight change in the schedule for tonight's basketball action at Gosnell. The Pirates arc scheduled to meet LUXORA in a varsity battle at eight o'clock and this game will proceed as planned. However, a new opponent has been set for Bratcher's junior team. The junior Pirates will face Blytheville Junior High's B team instead of Luxora's junior varsity. This clash will get underway in the Gosnell gym at 6:30. Muskies Are Alone By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Minnesota rests comfortably alone in first place in the Eastern Division of the American Basketball Association today after Indiana worked so hard and .failed to gain a seat beside the Muskies. Indiana fell one game behind Minnesota by losing to Dallas 119-114 Monday night in Dallas. A victory would have left them in a virtual tie for the top spot the Pacers held through most of the early season games. In the only other game, Oakland defeated New Jersey 127105. Dallas held an 11-point lead after three quarters, but the Pacers pressed within 109-107 before the Chaparrals recovered and pulled out of danger. Cincy Powell had 23 points for the Chaps and player-coach Cliff Hagan 20. Roger Brown led a three-man show for Indiana with 34 points followed by Oliver Darden's 23 and Fred Lewis' 22. At Oakland, the Oaks snapped a four-game losing streak at the expense of New Jersey. Oakland built a 37-20 first-quarter lead and held a 68-49 halftime bulge. Lavern Tart, the league's leading scorer, paved the way for the Oaks with 30 points and Gary Bradds, in only his second game with Oakland, contributed 22. Stew Johnson was high for the Americans with 18. THE AWSOME BULK of Buster Mathis; looms'large over the heavyweight boxing picture after bis quick, brutal knockout of Ron Marsh.

Van Nowlin's 16 points and Moore's 13 captured game honors for the losers. Presbyterians routed the Methodists to the tune of 56-21.

Little Rock Horace Mann, which dropped an eight-point decision to Central in the Tigers' season opener, climbed into second place. Mann, ranked fourth last week, defeated Fort Smith Northside last week. Mann forfeited to St. Joseph of Conway Monday because of a schedule problem. Northside dropped from second to fourth by virtue of the loss in the poll by ten sportswriters and broadcasters. Class AAA teams hold down the first nine spots. Texarkana is third followed by Northside, North Little Rock, BlyKieville, Pine Bluff, El Dorado and Fort Smith Southside. Bay, a class B team with a 12-0 record, grabbed the tenth spot.
