LAFAYETTE -The Groeley West basketball team clinched at least a tie for the Northern Conference championship with an 84-66 win over Centaurus here Saturday night. The win leaves the Spartans with an 8-1 record, and if they win the season finale this Friday against Sterling they will assure themselves of a spot in the Class AAA state tournament. Greeley West used the same ingredients that have worked all year long to carve out the win over Centaurus -·· a good defense, balanced scoring and adequate help from the bench. The Spartans trailed by 17-16 after the first period, because "we weren't playing our good defense," according to coach John Birleffi. "That Beranek got hot on us, and they always CU easily wins regional ski meet LEASE A Plymouth "Car Of The Year" WINTER PARK, Colo. (AP) -- Defending NCAA ski champion Colorado failed to capture a first place in either of two events Sunday but still easily outdistanced four other teams to win a regional equalifying meet. Colorado skiers took second and third in the giant slalom and a third place in the 55-meter jumping event to give the team a total of 55 points for the two-day, four-event tournament. The University of Wyoming came in second with 44 points while Utah finished third with 21 points. All three teams will be eligible to compete in the NCAA championships March 36 in Lewiston, Me. In fourth place in the meet was Western State College, with 16 points. Fort Lewis College was fifth with 8 points. In competition Sunday, Bill Shaw of Wyoming won the slalom event at the Winter Park ski area with a combined time of 69.750 on two runs. On his first time down a 44-gate course, he was clocked in 36.01. His second time, down a course with 42 gates, was 33.73 seconds. Second and third place in the race were both won by Colorado skiers. Stephan Hienzsch finished second with a combined time of 69.87 while Jeff Temple was third in 70.16 seconds. In the 55-meter jumping event, Ron Steelc of Utah set a record with a leap of 53.5 meters on his final attempt. shool well in their own gym. But we started p u t t i n g more pressure on Iheir guards and that really tightened our defense." In the middle two periods, which is when Iho Spartans really took control of the game, West outscored Centaurus by 46-2fi. Pal Wolach; who led all West scoring with 19 points, "really kept us in the ball game in the first quarter," Birieffi said. Wolach got 10 of his points in (he first half, many coming off crucial steals. West's leading scorer Jack Coy and starting center Gardell Schnable both got into foul trouble, but West's bench picked up the slack. "A. J. Lauer did a great job coming off !he bench," Birleffi said. Lauer finished with nine points and eight rebounds. Schnable still finished with 15 points and Coy had 14 to add punch to West's balanced scoring. Forward Brad Reeves also had 13 as the Spartans again had four players in double figures. Coy and Schnable also drew praise for their defensive work, which is possibly why they got into foul trouble, Mark Beranek scored eight of his 14 in the first half, and Marc Finleon scored 13 of his 20 inthe first half as the West defense tightened after intermission. Birleffi also said he was "enlightened and pleased" about the team's 16 of 22 performance from lhe free throw line, which broke a long slump for the Sparlans. Greeley West had a commanding 39-22 edge in rebounding, led by Schnablc's 10 caroms and Coy's nine.
