Moil., Feb. 23,1976 Central wins first conference game Ilv DKHIIII-: IWASKICII TrilHiiu'-l'NCInli'rn Despite a confusing final Iwo n i i n u t o s of play. Greeley (Viitnil downed Nhvol for the V/iUlcal's f i r s t league win Saturday, with a 55-511 victory. Central relied on tltt 1 cons i s t e n c y of s e n i o r s Brad Murphy and John I.ehr. but (lie key to !he f.aine was j;ood perfin niaiK'i 1 .-. by sophomores Bob Rosendale. Alan Stringer and Mike Hubbard. liosendale, a 0-8 cenler, m abbed five rebounds and held Ihe Northern conference's fifth leading scorer, Steve Nehf, to a three-point output. Nehf scored 27 points Friday against l.oveland, far above his 16.1 point average. "It's really good to see Ihc sophomores coming on. That's what made the difference for us," said Fred Griffith, Central coach. When the Wildcats played Niwot in January, the Cougers beat Central, 76-46, but Central's improvement since then is evident. Murphy, Central's only returning letterman, had an outstanding performance in his last home appearance. Murphy scored 22 points, his second highest point total all season, on e point below his season high of 23 points against Niwot in January. Murphy completed nine of 20 field goals, shot four of seven from the line and lead the Wildcats in rebounding with 13 rebounds. Add six steals and that equals an outstanding effort. Lehr was second in scoring with 13 points, followed by Stringer with II points. Murphy and Lehr took Central for a 45-40 deficit in the fourth quarter to a 51-46 lead. Then the confusion began. Niwot scored two baskets to close a gap to 51-50. Niwot scored a basket to take a momentary 52-50 lead, but the bucket was nullified by a traveling violation at mid court. In the disorder, Niwot's coach Don Winger was penalized and John Lehr sank a technical to give Central a two point lead, 52-50. Once again the shot was nullified because Niwot had called time out, but only one referee recognized the call. On his second attempt, Lehr missed, so the score was readjusted to 51-50. Murphy soared to grab the rebound of Lehr's shot, gave a head fake and put in a shot to give Central a 53-50 lead. Niwot .was forced to foul to get the ball back, but Lehr added the icing OWE HIM KOOM -- Kriss Lindbcrg (30) of Niwot leans bnckwjird lo avoid fouling Wildcat John I,ehr (20) as Lehr drives in for a layup in the first period.
