BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COTTKTEK NEWS s, loss PAGB TEN __ — ~~ Chickasaws Thump Southside 69-44 Tribe Is Sharp In Opening Tilt; At Tech Tonight Whether it was a portend of things to come or merely a flash against an opponent which was weaker than expected, will become known within the next week or so, but Blytheville's Chickasaws looked mighty sharp at Haley Gym last night in subduing Southside of Memphis 69-44. The Paps were trounced 70-22 by Dyess in the preliminary. \Upsets Dot Opening College Cage Action; Frisco Plays Tonight Blytheville's sharp-shootine attack, led by Bobby Jones with 18 points, was well-balanced all down the line, and its defense and rebounding were extremely effective. The Tribe grabbed a big lead from the opening whistle when Fred Hodge dunked a quick lay-up from the tip-off and were never threatened by the lads from Memphis. Balanced Scoring The entire Chick starting lineup •cored well with Freddy Akers and Billy Daniels notching 12 apiece and Fred Hodge and Charles Abbott each pitched in eight. Chick reserves, for the most part, also looked good in the ample time which they appeared. Some of them played particularly well. David Holt and Jimmy Bralcher looked good defensively. The game was a baptism of fire for junior forward Billy Daniels, whose play is expected to be a major key to the success of the Chicks this year. Daniels Comes Through Daniels, with his sharp-shooting and excellent rebounding, came through the test with flying colors. His work solidified Coach Jimmy Fisher's starting lineup for the future. If Daniels had not responded as expected under game pressure, there was a chance Fisher would College Basketball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS EAST St. Josephs (Pa) 89, Fordham 71 Lasalle 88, Millersville 70 Seton Hall 93, Toronto 60 NYU 91, NY State Maritime 51 Temple 87, Albright 56 Niagara 77, Buffalo Tchrs 51 SOUTH Louisiana College 84, Louisiana State 19 Tennessee 86.

The remaining starting team turned in the kind of work expected, and looked somewhat ahead of normal early season development. All are experienced and have shown in the past the ability to play fine ball. Early season lapses with a few rough edges on the Chicks' game were apparent, but they should soon vanish. System Works Well Fisher's new 1-3-1 tandem post offense looked extremelj effective and difficult to defend. Playmaker Freddy Akers setup numerous scoring plays with sharp passing to Hodge, Jones, Daniels and Abbott, who frequently got free for shots from the tandem-post maneuvering. Jones exhibited the same deadly accuracy from the outside that he has been noted for the past three years. He seemed to be almost in mid-season form with his one-handed push shots from 15 to 25 feet away. The Chicks moved to a quick 12-4 lead in the opening minutes as Southside had considerable difficulty finding the sack. Blytheville held an 18-10 lead afl- er the first quarter and were 34-18 at the half. Southside outscored the Chicks only in the third period, racking up 19 points to 18 for the Tribe, mainly on the efforts of their big center, Lyon, who topped their scorers with 15 points. Tech Tonight The Chicks play their second game of the young season tonight against the Yellowjackets at Greene County Tech near Paragould. Tech reportedly has a fine team this year, not having lost a single member of last year's squad which came on strong during the latter^ part of the season. Gamctlme at Greene County's spacious gym is 8 o'clock. The Paps had there ineir trou- i bles last night witii inexperience o!' j the squad showing in the resounding defeat levelled against them by Dyess' juniors. 'Manley, big center for the Paps, was their high scorer with 13 points, but the entire Pap team was outscored by Dyess' center, Burleson, who swished through .32 markers.
