PAGE FOURTEEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1081 VOu (-jeora« First Big Eight Step Is Big One for Chickasaws The big. moment arrives soon for Blythcville High School, the moment looked forward to for nearly a year since the first announcement of Blytheville's interest in becoming a Class AAA school. A new era in Chickasaw athletics will begin unfolding Friday night when the Pine Bluffs Zebras come to Haley Field Gym. It's fittingTthat the Chicks should jump right into the deep water without delay . . . and that's just what they're going to do when they tangle with the Zebras who are tabbed as one of the powers to watch to the Big Eight cage scramble. Pine Bluff has a high-scoring machine operated by a fast, experienced team, practically intact from last year. . They've rolled over everything in sight so far. AND IF THAT isn't enough to initiate the Chicks, the Wildcats of North Little Rock, now the top-favored club in the conference, will be here Saturday night to lend a hand. The Wildcats were defeated in the state tournament finals last year by Fort Smith and have lost only a couple of players from thats quad. They came in as pre-season favorites and last week's trouncing of Little Rock did nothing but crystallize their position at the top of the list. Blylheville, together with Little Rock. Fort Smith and Hot Springs, is listed as a contender in the battle between North Little Rock and Pine Bluff by the Central Arkansas seers. The Chicks have the experience, ability and desire ... but the big question is one of height . . . we'll have a pretty good answer to that one by Saturday night. • • • ONE THING is certain . ... The Chicks have class and should go a long way in tournament play this year. The boys who make up the nucleus of the squad have seen plenty of pressure-ized tournament play in the past four years. They've played in the biggest-ones in the state since their junior high days, going to state tournaments twice. They went to the finals in the state junior tournament at Jonesboro and to the quarterfinals of the senior event last year. * « • Possession Limit Means Only Eight Ducks - Anywhere A few inquiries have come out our way concerning the possession limit on ducks. Federal regulations permit a hunter to have eight ducks in his possession though the daily limit is only four. This situation, which exists only insofar as ducks arc concerned ta Arkansas at' least, has given rise to some misunderstanding us to how many ducks a. person may legally have In his possession — whether they be in his game sack, his refrigerator or his deep freeze. Big Lake game officials pointed out to us that the possession limit of eight ducks applies regardless of where the hunter is or where the clucks are, or how he came by them . . . and that was & surprise to us. And possession of eight ducks by a hunter returning from a hunt requires proof that the hunt extended over two days or more. That apparently was the reason for adoption of the rule — to give hunters on longer trips a chance to get more than the daily limit. Burdette Trips Luxora In Thriller at Missco WEST RIDGE — A sizzling Bur- dette-Luxorn game sparked the second night of play in the Missco Senior Invitational Tournament here last night. Burdette triumphed 13-70. They had a 43-32 halftime lead. Burdette's scoring was evenly . distributed with Burks, 20, Ensley, 16, and 15 for Rigsby. The big Panther was Looney who banged 30. Reiser's girls smotnered Luxora 62-31 as they sprinted to an easy 27-12 halfway mark. Smith was Keiser's show with 31 points, and Ban-on collected 18 of Luxora's tallies. In another girls' game. Missco tripped Qosnell 52-33. After two quarters of play Missco had the advantage 24-15. Miller of Missco pumped in 34 points. Lollar to- talled 17 for Gosnell. .
