Indiana State, Southwest Missouri State and Trinity, Tex., each advanced one place, to fourth, fifth and sixth, respectively. San Diego State, which lost to South Pemiscot Looking Forward By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor "We are just now getting all of our men together as a working unit, we've been hit by so many injuries up till now." Jerry Sinko, basketball coach Of the SOUTH PEMISCOT HIGH SCHOOL Bulldogs was the speaker when asked earlier this week how things looked for his team in the second-half of the current season. The Bulldogs have been on the hardwood in game competition since early November and after two months of battling can .sport an eight won and seven lost record. "We have had a lot of injuries since the season started," Sinko went on to explain, "and then the flu bug came along, so we have not been up to par lately." As an example of what he meant, the coach pointed out that the Bulldogs' leading scorer, Lanny Tyler, fractured his .shooting 'arm the first game of the season against Cooler while driving for a lay-up. "Lanny struck' it against the wall but we,did not realize it was broken until after he played the -whole'next- game.- • "Then he came to me and said that it was really bothering him, and when that- young man 'complains, I know there is something wrong. He had a hairlirie fracture and was forced to miss several games." Despite the loss, Lanny has managed to set the pace in scoring for.the Bulldogs with a 15.3 average, having a particularly hot hand on one-handers from outside the foul circle. In his third year as head coach since the consolidation of the Holland and Steele' schools, Sinko had served as an assistant to Earl Smith who is now. a counselor at the school. Besides Tyler, he counts on 10 other men to carry the offensive and defensive attack for the Bulldogs. Other starters are Joe Allbritton, a 6-1 senior who ranks second in scoring with a 15.2 average and who has been giving strong support to the offense all season; Jerry Howell, the team's leading rebounder and a player who, according to his mii!i]iiiiiiiiiiiiiMiniii»ii«ii* iniiinii :i> Hockey BlIlllliiliiillllllllWiiliiiimiiiiim'niiiniiimiinniiPiiiillMli- National Hockey League By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wednesday's Results Montreal'4, Pittsburgh 3 Toronto 2, Detroit 1 New York .3, Chicago 3, tie Minnesota 6, Philadelphia 4 St. Louis 2, Oakland 2, tie Today'i .Games .

This five, as well as their replacements, has moved out to a 1-1 mark in conference play and find themselves tied for second place with North Pemiscot, Cooler and Hayti Nort> Caruthersville tops the standing with its 1-0 record. "We have a pretty well-balanced league," Sinko commented, "there is no outstanding club in the six and anyone can beat you, anyone could win the conference title." Sinko went on to explain that It is important who does finish on top in the conference since the pairings in the conference tournament will be determined by the league standings. The tourney is set for Feb. 5-10 with all participants then moving on to the • region tournament on Feb. .19. - ' Back-up men for the Bulldog starters include James Becker, 'the "sixth man" who, against 'North Pemiscot, came off the bench to tally 18 points in one half of play; Rocky Boswell; Roy Poplin; Richard Jones; Dwight'Parmes; and Wendell Holt. All of these men have come through for us when we called upon them," Sinko added. The Bulldogs have been able to play only one game since the Christmas holidays due to the inclement weather, but Sin ko has had his men drilling every afternoon. I feel that the Christmas lay-off was good for us," he said, "we have been playing since early November and practicing 'before that, so the rest did us good. I think sometimes you can push the boys a little too much and it makes them stale. Apparently refreshed and raring to .go, if one can judge from watching a practice session earlier this week, the Bulldogs are hopeful the weatherman begins to cooperate and allows them to- get back to game action real soon. The Bulldogs are scheduled to meet Hayti tonight at the Hayti court in a conference battle, Sinko and his men are anxious for the chance to improve both their season and con- Eerence marks; ice and snow notwithstanding. Ail-Around Player Pays Dividends By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Every basketball coach is happy lo have an all-around player on his team, and St. Bo- nventure's Larry Weise must be ecstatic over Bob Lanier. The 6-foot-10 sophomore, the team's leading scorer and re- bounder, not only scored 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds Wednesday night, he also blocked eight shots and stole the ball six times as the unbeaten Bonnies defeated DePaul 77-67 lor their 12th straight. DePaul, behind 41-29 at halftime in the game at Olean, N.Y., closed to within five points with 13 minutes left. But then, with Lanier stealing the ball and blocking shots, the seventh-ranked Bonnies pulled away. Lanier, who hit on 10 of 12 shots from the field, got scoring help from Billy Butler, with 20, and John Hayes, with 15. Al Zetzsche led DePaul with 23. Third-ranked North Carolina overcame an eight-point deficit in the second half to edge North Carolina State at Raleigh, N.C., Atlantic Coast Conference. 0*0 Tar H«el§, tin only other members of the Associated Press Top Ten to see action, were paced by-Larry Miller's 13 rebounds and 17 points as they built their ACC record to 3-0 and their over-all mark to 10-1. .
