ON fME SIDELINES BY HAM RICG There's no such thing as a one-man team. Sometimes, looking at the • headlines, it's hard to realize that, and sportswriters as well as fans are guilty of creating that opinion, although for different reasons. One of our own prime goals is to see as many Tipton boys as need it, get scholarship assistance in going on to college. In order to get that help; they have to come under the eye of college scouts. We have never deluded ourselves with the idea that we can convince any college coach- that each of the Tipton boys is more gifted athletically than every one of their opponents all season long, but not all college scouts look for the same type' of boy nor for the same talents in each boy. Get 'Em Watched It has been our philosphy there, whether in football or basketball, that while we can sell no coach on the entire Tipton starting eleven or starting five, if we can attract their interest in just one boy, we will have accomplished our objective. For if enough coaches Or scouts watch the Blue Devils while scouting that one player, they are bound to • find points about other players which attract their interest. Thus, one so-called super star, may b e helping everyone of his teammates to get the scholarship aid they need, by attracting coaches to the football fields and gyms where they arc in action. Could Hurt Team Thus when a boy fails to live up to his full potential, for whatever reason, he is not only hurting himself but.each of.his teammates. This is a point per­ haps overlooked by a few. The subject arose in a conversation between this writer and Dick Barr, following very good account of the Tipton-Burris basketball game b y Corky Lamm in the Indianapolis News. Too Noble? For those who didn't read the story we quote a couple of sentences. ". . .there are still items to be learned - like picks for Don Curnutt, he of the marvelous shot, and a little more polish on defense, but the in gredients are there. . .Curnutt, now 6 '3V2" and 10 pounds heavier than last season when Tip ton lost only one game, has the touch and talent to make Tipton real sassy agajn. He's awful polite to teammates, which is noble but sometimes unneces sary and very often costly. . .' Going back to the opening sentence of this column...there's no such thing as a one-man team. We know it. The k i d s- know it and the fans know it So do the coaches. All knoty that for every basket flashed on the score board there has to be someone getting the ba 1 1 whether on a rebound or- steal. And from one backboard to the other it takes someone to bring the ball downcourt several more to pass it around looking for an opening, and finally, someone to feed for an assist or to pick for his shooter. The guy putting the ball into the basket is only the cul mination of the work of all five players, each doing the part for which he is best equipped, and regardless of the headlines, each member of the team shares equal credit for the triumph One may be a better "thief one a better rebounder, one a FUNERAL HOME OSborn* 5-2425 Tipton IPTON'S FINEST FUNERAL SERVICE SINCE; 1 FALVEYS ARE LOADED We are loaded but it was intentional.

But each one earns the basket. j - Speculation We asked coach Barr a question which has been asked us repeatedly. "Do you think Donnie (Curnutt) will hit 50 points this season?". Barr replied, "Frankly, I don't know. If he'd shoot like the Lebanon kid (Rick Mount) there's no question about it. If he was a gunner there's almost no limit to what he could make. But he isn't. As soon as he puts together a good string or a good quarter, he starts worry-. ing about his teammates. H e wants them to score and starts looking for chances t o feed them. There's nothing wrong with that, for the whole team is that way. It's one of the things that make them all click so well together. He even does it in practice, and once in a while'I have to get on him for feeding off on shots he should have taken. Donnie's like any other kid. He enjoys shooting or he wouldn't have practiced so hard, 'but he's better at it than most other boys. For a boy who can shoot the way he can, he's more con- scous about feeding Off, and tries harder to help his teammates score than ^anyone I've ever seen. One of these nights we may be in a game where we need 50 points from someone and in that case he'll get 'em. Otherwise though, he'd rather split them up with the other boys." - As Good as Rayl? Well, personally, we hope we never have to sweat out a night when the Blue Devils need a 50-point performer to win, but we've contended for a year that Donnie's as good a shot and a better all around performer than the original "Splendid Splinter" from Kokomo. 'But to prove that he'll have to come up with 52 points to top that 51-49 duel of several years back between • Jimmy Rayl and Ray Pavy of New Castle. THAT we wouldn't mind swea ting out. . .and though Donnie may not realize it, we'd bet every one of his teammates would be proud if they could help him do it. Bearcats Ge Hearing Today INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The IHSAA Board of Control met here touay with-Muneie Central and the 1965 state basketball tourney the major items on the agenda. It was the second appearance before the board by Muneie Central officials but the Bearcats will not be reinstated to the IHSAA good graces until a later date. Commissioner 'Phil Eskew said a 'ecision on the ease may be reached later this month. Several weeks ago Muneie school officials appeared before the board to outline steps taken since the school was suspended from the IHSAA for one year last January. Barring unexpected developments, IHSAA officials indicated earlier that Muneie Central would be permitted to rejoin the association next month. The suspension, prevented the Bearcats from defending the state basketball crown they won in 1933. It was imposed for "laxity and irregularities" involving athletics. The team, under coach Dwight Tallman, has played several non-IHSAA clubs to get ready to open its season Jan. 2, two months after the rest of the state. Turning to the state tourney, Eskew said most tourney sites have worked out seating problems to comply with state fire marshal regulations but that some gymnasiums could be down "100 seats or so" because of the regulations. Eskew said his principal concern with the tourney is that it will not interfere with school time. "I want to cut out all sessions consisting of three games," he said, "but there will be at least one sectional tourney with 14 teams." He added that it is impossible to go on a two-game per session plan with that many contenders.
