Expecting to 1mvc things pretty much as they pleased by virtue ol their overwhelming triumph in the season opener nt Wilson, the Tribe ran into serious trouble. Instead of fnlling over and playing dead, tlie smaller visitors put up a determined scrap. Fighting tor every lioint, they came trom behind twice to. tie the score. For n time it looked as it they might even fln- ish on top. The Chicks can Ihnnk their lucky stars for nn adequate defense Hint kept the Mltchclliucn tuviiy from the basket.
