By JOHN STREY (Pharos-Tribune Sports Editor) The Berries, now 2-0 for the young basketball season, headed for Fort Wayne tonight to keep their first date at the spacious Coliseum against Central's Tigers. Coach Jim Jones wouldn't mind a repetition of the devastating offense, which riddled Rochester for 91 points Wednesday at Berry Bowl. But at the same time a tactics is imperative if the Berries figure to upset the high flying Fort Wayne quintet, also victorious in two previous appearances.

Witness his 20 points against Anderson in Central's 71 to 60 victory Rochester over the Redskins of the North Central conference last week. He tallied 15 as Fort Wayne blasted .-city rival Central Catholics 58 to .38 the following evening. Kelso, the jumping jack pivot man, was down for 27 against Anderson and 12 'in the Central encounter. So he appears poised for the Berries, too! This pair represents the extent of Central's starting height. Ron Brubaker, a 6-0 senior, is expected to play the other forward with T. C. Williams, a 5-10 sophomore, and Steve Hatch, a 5-8 senior, operating in the back court. Fort Wayne reliefers include Norman Beer, 6-2 senior; ' Bill Boyd, 5-11 junior; Don Linton, 6-5 junior center; Frank Smith, 5-9 senior and Tharnell Hollins, 5-11 junior. Coach Jones doesn't anticipate any alterations from the unit which has opened the Berries' first two triumphs—Larry Jones, Jim Moss, Ron Jones, Larry Cart and Billy Cuppy. Two pinch - hitters, however, showed up well in the Rochester encounter. Dave Dkkerson collect, ed 11 points during his limited service in the second and fourth quarters and John Gibson picked up sue points in the second half. Cart and Ron Jones, meanwhile, were very much in , evidence during the hot shooting night. Larry canned 18 in the first half and added 12 for an awesome 30- poir.t production. Jones, an aggressive rebounder, chipped in with 21 points, including a perfect night at the free throw line of seven for seven. Rochester had several heroes, foremost of which were Phil Cop- ,len and Barry Conrad, who combined efforts for a grand total of 38 points.
