THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1933 SPORTS FRESNO BULLPUPS TO MEET JAYSEE SQUAD Drillers May Have Tilts With Shaf ter Here as Practice Games WfHILE the junior college Rene" gades went to work today in preparation for another busy week- and, the high school Drillers were enjoying a two-day respite granted by Coach Griffith, and Ernost Dai- bom, director of athletics, was Iceeplng the telephone wires hot In an effort to reconcile conflicting dates and arrange for a trio of practice games between Bakersfleld nnd Shaftor high squads here Saturday evening. Coach Peterson's Renegades have their work cut out for them In tho form of two games, one with Porterville J. C. In th'e local gymnasium Friday evening, and a second with Fresno State Bullpups at Fresno, Saturday night. . The Bakersfleld-Portervllle game will mark the beginning of the second round of play In the junior college conference series. Since the Renegades now top the jaysee loop, remaining undefeated by a conference team, and Porterville la In the cellar, Friday's game should not present many difficulties. By way of contrast, however, the Fresno Frosh will rank as one of thP strongest quintets faced by the junior collegians this winter. A year ago a touted freshman squad came down to Bakersfleld and took a trimming at • the hands of the Renegades. And a Bull pup never fogets. Working Up Sttam Coach Peterson's problem this week will be to work up enough steam In the junior college quintet to carry It through both nights. Last week the Renegades used up ajl their steam In winning their conference game with Taft on Friday evening, then let down completely when they ran up against a nonconference and supposedly un- Jmportant rival in California Poly- tech. Drillers Rtst Putting the Drillers In a class with bankers and others who aro privileged to celebrate Lincoln's birthday fittingly, "Griff" prescribed a "rest cure 1 for the high school varsity yesterday. The rest period carried through today, and the high school boys will not have 10 get back into the practice grind again until tomorrow afternoon. Coach Griffith may have decided to try out the method of training suggested by psychologists In their paradoxical statement, "A man learns to swim In the winter and to skato in the summer." Subconsciously, the Idea Is the Drillers may learn how to hit the basket unconsciously. Their chief difficulty In recent games has been Inability to cash In on chances at the bucket after working the bal! into scoring territory. While awaiting completion of arrangements for tho Class A, B and L Kames with Shatter, Coach Dalbom planned to pit his high school middleweights against the Athletic Club team this evening. Though they hel< little hope of winning from tho heavier and moro experienced Athletics, the middles intended to make un educational event, win, lose or draw. •-»-* ATHLETICS TROUNCE CAGE TEAM After taking a lead of 18 to 12 In he first half, the .Bakersfleld Athletic lub quintet went on a stampede for 4 additional tallies In the second half o win from the Mormon five, 42 to 4, at the local gymnasium last night.
