Cyrus, visiting pivotman, paced the victors' attack with six field goals and two fouls. The Pointers threw up a defense that continually broke up the Owls' passing offense and limited the home lads to three lone Held goals, all of which were tallied by Scacchi.

Doldc has brought his youngsters along slowly and the calibre of their playing has steadily improved with each contest. Alter a poor showing against Jean- nettc they baftled a larger, stronger Johnstown five through four quarters although losing 27-20, and Nor- wln High was extended to the limit to gain a 28-22 decision after trailing for three quarters. Even before learning what Grcens- hurg had done at Latrobe where it was expected they would win, a Nor- winKe newspaperman confided that Grocnsburg would have plenty difficulty getting past the Coker quintet undefeated. In addition to the main attraction, the Coker Junior Varsity, undefeated in four engagements, will play a preliminary game starting at 7:15 o'clock. It is hoped that Grcensburg may bring its jayvee basketeers but as yet no word has been received. The Coker-Grcensburg varsity game will get under way"at. 8:15 o'clock.
