CONTINENTALalr eondionlnrt45.15 THUNDERBIRDair conditioning! 12.03 CHEVROLET IMPALA 69.65 Chapman College has been awarded a bid to the NCAA College Division's Pacific Coast Tournament and there's still a chance slim as it might be 'that Orange State will be invited, too. Dr. George Ziegenfuss, San Diego State basketball coach and regional director of the NCAA, said final selection of the four teams will be made Saturday after final games are played in the CCAA cage chase. Right now," Ziegenfuss told The Times, "it looks like Fresno State, San Francisco State and Chapman are as sured of bids. The remaining bid will probably go to the second place team in the CCAA (UC Santa Barbara or San Diego State)." Still Chanc Ziegenfuss said there Is still a possibility that Orange State or Cal Poly of Pomona might be awarded the invi tation, however. "I will not be participating in the vote in as much that my team is one of those un der consideration,", he said "Fresno State has already clinched at least a tie for the CCAA title and will be the host team for the tournament March 8-9. San Francisco State, the Far Western Con ference champion, did not want the tournament and Chapman's facilities are inadequate, " Ziegenfuss said. Orange State has a 14-6 record with two games left to play, Friday night at Univer sity of San Diego and Satur day night at Fullerton J C against Weber College of Utah. Chapman's' record is 18-6 with one game left, Saturday night at Fresno State Chapman holds a two out of three edge over Orange State this season, a major factor m the decision of which team to invite, according to Zie genfuss. Tourney Ineligible! Ziegenfuss also indicated that the fact that three Orange State players Terry Hermann, Jon Brettman and Jim Hatchett would be in eligible for the tourney was a factor in the decision by the selection committee. Winner of the Pacific Coast Tournament qualifies for the eight-team national college tournament at Evans- ville, Ind., March END OF THE ROAD Brettman, Hermann to Leave Sports Pages Terry Hermann and Jon Brettman really aren't old men, but many a faithful sports page reader would probablv be willing to swear that their names have been appearing in basketball box scores m Orange County since the elimination of the center jump. This is not too far from the truth. Saturday night the two "grey-beards" suit up for the last time for Orange State College for a game with Weber College of Utah. It will end eight years in the local sports page for Hermann and six years for Brettman. Terry played three years of varsity ball at Orange High and a two-year stint at Fullerton JC before joining the Orange State Titans for three years. Brettman had one year at Santa Ana High and two at Santa Ana Col lege before his three years as a Titan. , Glad It's Over Hermann, 22, admits he's kind of glad it's over. "I'm not what you'd call an old man, but I think I'm getting a little stale. It seems like I've been playing basketball for an awfully long time." Actually, Hermann's play ing days in competitive bas ketball date back 11 years to when he played for Orange Intermediate School. Since then he has collected more titles and honors than, a Latin general. Both players have a collec tion of scoring records, all- league, all-tournament and all-state honors that would fill a library of scrapbooks. Brettman, 23, was born in Santa Ana, but lived most of his school years in Lincoln, Neb;, returning to Santa Ana in his senior year of high school just in time to lead the Saints to the Sunset League championship. In his first year at Santa Ana College he was a starter on the team that won the conference championship and fin ished second m the state tournament. The two players were op ponents in high school and junior college before joining forces at Orange State. Terry says his biggest thrill as a player probably was participating last year in the NAIA Tournament at Kansas City. Jon believes his biggest thrill came the night Santa Ana beat Newport Harbor in 1958 for the league cham- ship. "And then who did ytvj play?" chuckled Terry, who remembers very well being a member of the Orange High team that tripped the Saints in a special "county playoff" 'Heart Fund game the next night. . Jon graduates in June with a social degree. Terry will receive the same degree in January. Both are unde cided about the future. "I sure hate to see these fellows leave," says Titan coach Alex Omalev. "We've put on a lot of miles together. "I'm especially sorry to see Jon go" Omalev cracked, "he's the only one on the team that laughs at my jokes." "I'm half-way glad it's all over," said nermann, who has had Omalev as his coach for the past five years. Prep Nines to Open Action .
