(Herald Photo) Melvern And Fontana Roll Into Regional Semi-Finals Cyclones To Meet West In Regional Tomorrow night, a cautious Ottawa Cyclone crew will be making its first bid of the Shawnee Mission North Class AA regional tournament against an avenging Shawnee Mission West club. West, already playing the role of spoiler as it upset Sumner, is only a 6-14 winner for the season but it proved itself under pressure as it bounced one of the top teams in the area and in the regionals. The Cyclones are in good physical shape, and, regardless of the loss last weekend to Rosedale, the Reds' last conference game, Ottawa is primed for the tournament. Coach H. K. Stevens will send his ace center Harry Morton along with his other senior, Roy Dunn, into their regular starting roles. Sophomore Ronnie Mendell, Eddie Davidson and Jim Lewis will hold down the other three starting slots. Ottawa holds the edge in the •coring statistics with Morton at 16.7, Dunn 13.4 and Mendell 13.0. * * * Don Sharbutt leads West with a 13.4 average, followed by Tom Oglesby, 9.0, and Greg Henry 5.8. A relative newcomer, Dave Stryker, has cracked the nets in recent games to give West a solid 1-2 punch from the field. Coach Stevens' Reds may hold a height advantage, but so did Sumner as it outrebounded the Westerners, 49-27, but lost 51-49. West proved tough on the floor, more so than its 6-14 record would indicate. In other games, West slipped by Shawnee Mission East 36-34; Topeka West 56-57; Moundridge 58-57; Shawnee Mission North 51-49 in an overtime; North K. C., 55-36 and Sumner 51-49 for its 6 victories. It dropped tilts to Wyandotte 72-51; Ward 88-44, and Lawrence 63-47 for a few of the 14 losses. Cyclone Coach Stevens praised West's determination in yesterday's tilt but wisecracked, "Shucks, now we won't have a shot at Sumner." Displaying one * * * of the biggest grins he could muster, Stevens conferred with his assistant coach J. W. Emerson, a firm Sumner believer. During the opening Sumner-West bout, it was Emerson who kept assuring the scouting Stevens that "West will never win it." Not true to the script, West emerged the victor. After the West victory, Stevens expressed concern over West's potential. Shawnee Mission has been hampered by injuries all season. In its 51-49 hand over to Sumner, eighth-ranked team in the state, it was at full strength for one of the first times this season. Don Sharbutt, 6-1, and Dave Stryker, 6-0, are the outstanding scorers, in fact, they got 39 of the 51 points. To win, we'll have to be at our best. Game time is 6:45, Ottawa versus Shawnee Mission West. The winner will move into the finals of the Mission North regionals. * it it Westerners Knock Out Sumner In A Surprise By CONRAD DOWNING SHAWNEE MISSION - Shawnee Mission West staged the biggest upset of the Regional tournament at Shawnee Mission North as the rugged Mission crew skuttled the Sumner Spartans yesterday afternoon, 51-49, in a grueling battle. In other action, Fort Scott defeated Argentine, 42-39, and SM North slipped by a courageous Olathe 1 quintet, 40-36. Sumner, one of the top teams in the North regional with a 135 record, had previously defeated West, 75-41, but yesterday afternoon a boy named Don Sharbutt combined tallents with Dave Stryker to whip the Mission five to an upset frenzy. Stryker dropped in 21 and Sharbutt connected for 14 to power the Westmen into the second round against Ottawa. Throughout the contest, Sumner approached the play with the confidence born of an abundance of ability. However, it seemed to sag as the Spartans trailed 12-5 at the end of the first period as they connected on only 1 of IS shots. The dogged determination of West held the Gold to a 31-27 halftime edge. Coach Tom Rhone's five bounced back to grab a brief 30-38 lead at the buzzer ending the third frame, and it looked as though the champs of two years ago and second place finishers of last year were on their way. But it wasn't in the' deck, as Mission's hustlers blanketed the Spartan shooters to take a 49-44 lead with 4:27 left in the fourth. Sumner fired back with Leroy James, Ken Cloud and Dwight Henderson knotting the count at 49- 4V with :35 seconds in the game. Sluwuee Mission set up the last play, but Stunner's over-eager sophomore guard committed « foul with 4 seconds showing on the clock. Scott Harris, a sub, was fouled and calmly dropped in a pair of charities to estabislh a 51-49 score that stood. Ken Cloud led the Spartan attack with 14 points and 21 rebounds while Don Sharbutt hit 15 and Dave Stryker 21 for West.
