THE CUBS-Richmond Coach Phil Rose and his Cubs will have.. hill to climb in Franklin County League basketball tournament which will open Monday night at Ottawa University. Cubs have been on little end of six league outings so far. With Rose is Bill Maley. (Herald Photos). THE PANTHERS — Coach Louis Coppoc will bring a Williamsburg Panther crew into Ottawa which might just take home the top trophy. Panthers are 4-1 in league play, with a loss to Porno* na, and have lost one in outside competition. THE ORIOLES — Coach Jim Pollom's Princeton Orioles so far haven't proved to be one of the better teams in the league or the poorest. They hold a 4-1 league mark with a victory over Richmond and losses to Lane, Williamsburg and Pomona. With Pollom is Al Ralston. "Neighbors Week" For Basketball Fans By A. I. VAN CLEAVE Ottawa basketball fans who normally spend their Tuesday and Friday nights at the Ottawa High or Ottawa University floorsides will have an opportunity next week to watch their neighbors Play- Franklin County League teams, whittled to five by the closing of Rantoul and the shift of Appanoose to Pomona, will move into Wilson Fieldhouse at OU for their annual tournament. Both "A" and "B" teams will play during the three nights. Schedules are shown at right. The County League tournament will be a preview to the showdown building up for the league championship. The Pomona High Indians, under the tutelage of Head Coach Carlin Nalley and Assistant John Krimbrel, will come to town in the favorites role. They're the defending champs, both tournament and league, and they boast a 50 league mark at the moment. Pomona enters the tourney Jan. 26 against the winner of the Monday night Princeton • Richmond game. But the Williamsburg Panthers have won five straight since dropping their season opener to Waverly and their third game to Pomona. In the five straight is a decisive victory over Melvern, a team that gave Pomona a real tussle in giving up a 41-39 decision. Pomona beat Williamsburg, 59-53, at Pomona. Coach Louis Coppoc's panthers, a young crew of mostly juniors, seem to grow stronger every game they play. A Pomona-Williamsburg finale is not unlikely and would be a real thriller. The Panthers face Lane in their opener on Jan. 26. Lime's Lions are batting better than .500 in league play with victories over Richmond and Princeton and losses to Williamsburg and Pomona. Coach Clayton True's Lions are an explosive team, capable, with sharpshooter Mike Kuder shooting sharply, of running up a good score. Princeton's Orioles, under Coach Jim Pollom, have beaten Richmond and lost to Pomona, Williamsburg and Lane for a 1-4 league mark. The Orioles must beat Richmond in the Monday night "A" opener to get a crack at Pomona. Sort of out of the frying pan into the fire. Coach Phil Rose's Richmond Cubs aren't having the easiest time of it this season. They've lost all six of their league games so far. I suppose this is one of those situations in which the stage has been set for revenge. Certainly, the objective basketball fan wouldn't begrudge Phil and his Cubs a little of it in next week's games. THE LIONS — Coach Clayton True's Lane Lions are sitting almost on the fence as county tournament nears. They've won three league games, over Princeton and Richmond, and have lost two, to Williamsburg and Pomona. With good start, Lions could reach finals. With True is Gary Stevens. Wellsville Falls To Spring Hill WELLSVILLE - Spring Hill felled the Wellsville Eagles, 47-21, in a Little 7 League game at Wellsvile last night, adding another loss to the Eagles' 0-Win and 9-loss record. Wellsville played a controlled offensive game in the first three quarters but lagged throughout the game. Spring Hill lead, 18-10, at halftime and scored an additional 11 points in the third. The Eagles only managed three points in the final period while the opposition scored 18. In the B team game Coach Al Williams played four freshmen and sophomores whom he commended for a fine performance despite Spring Hill's 35-33 win. Williams said the Spring Hill varsity was one of the biggest teams the Eagles have met this year. Wellsville will host DeSoto next. SPRING HILL - 47: Kittle, 8 4 2; Newton, 401; Beach, 211; Hickman, 310; Timmons, 114; Buckley, 111; Johnson, 010. Totals, 19 9 9.
