Gardner Feels Newcomers Will Add Depth WVV Needs WHEELING, (AP)-Fresh from a hectic recruiting season, West Virginia University basketball Coach Joedy Gardner feels his newcomers will add the depth that last year's 14-13 squad lacked. "We just didn't have the people to substitute last year. But we think we have remedied the situation. I am expecting a much improved team," he told the Wheeling News-Register while on a vacation visit to the Northern Panhandle. Three of the four recruits are backcourt men: Dana Perno, a 6-2 whiz who averaged 21 points a game at Uniontown (Pa.) High School; Jess Hutson, 5-11, also from Uniontown, with time at Robert Morris Junior College and the U.S. Army; and Tony Robertson. 6-5 from Detroit, who averaged 22.9 points and 10 rebounds a game at Eastern Arizona Junior College. Need Help at Curds "We were especially looking for help at the guards," Gardner said. "When we got beat last year, it was at the guards. If something happened to Earnie Hall, we would really have been in trouble for ballhandling." The fourth newcomer is Junius Lewis, a 6-11 center from Hugeoot High School in Richmond, Va., who averaged 15.3 points and 15.1 rebounds last year. The 17-year- old was contacted by 500 schools, Gardner said, with the Atlantic Coast Conference schools particularly battling for the tall center. WVU associate coach Bill Ryczaj visited Lewis 18 times, while Gardner was there eight times, the coach said. Gardner said he feels he can bring Lewis along slowly because he still has Warren Baker this season. Cti Jump ud Retort "Maybe Warren isn't the ideal pivotman because he's only 6-f oot-7 but he can jump and rebound and plays very well with his back to the basket," he said. "It took him much of last season to learn to play our post defense the way we wanted it but we won't have to worry about that this year. "He has to play at center because he doesn't handle the ball well enough to be a forward and doesn't shoot well enough facing the basket. But he can score and rebound in the pivot." Also returning will be forward Stan Boskovich, who became a standout in raidsea- son last year; Hali, a playmaker who sets up offense; and Bob Muggins, whom Gardner calls "a tremendous worker." Gardner, a 1959 WVU team cocaptain who returned last season as coach, also is enthusiastic about the plans for a new basketball league with teams such as Duquesne, Villanova, Penn State and Pitt. "The league will be very competitive, especially if we have an NCAA berth at stake, as we expect to," he said. "It's easier to get a team up for games in a league or conference."
