.\ THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE. PA. PAGE NINE. - Basketball Basketball By JOHN H. WHOJRIC Sports Editor SNELL ON CAGE RULE Fred Sncll, city's AAU commissioner and widely-known sports enthusiast and WPA supervisor of recreation activities, writes: "Two examples ol the absurdity of the new basketball rules resulting directly from the elimination o£ the center jump are the scoring o£ 50 ^points by Hank Luisetti ol Stanford ^against Duquesnc at Cleveland Saturday night and a girls' team, the Con- ncllsville Recreation Center Shamrocks, running up 74 points in defeating the Smock girls at Smock last Thursday night. "Luisetti is undoubtedly a great college player but no player, not even the old'time professional greats such as Fogarty, Whacter, Hough, Jackie Adams, Sugarman, Kincaidc, Bcckman and Holman, just to mention a few, could score anywhere near 50 points in a single game against first class opposition. If some of these basketball immortals could only be playing today under the present specded-up race track rules they would possibly double Luiselti's scoring spree. "When a girls' team can score 74 points in 32 minutes of play, using these same 'needled rules' for an average of almost two and onc-ha.lf points a minute and in so doing miss many easy shots one can get a picture of the dizzy scores that are in store for the fans this winter. "Baseball grew just a bit tiresome with the introduction of the rabbit ball and the resultant 5 and 10 cent store home runs now along comes V basketball with a set of rabbit rules which I predict will not only cheapen the game but once the novelty wears off disgust the fans." ROCKWOOD WINS OVER I. C QUINTET First Game at Armory Marked by Fast, Rough Play. NEITHER CLUB HAS BIG LEAD The Immaculate Conception High School basketball team was defeated 18 to IS at State Armory Wednesday night by Rockwood High as it played its first .home game. The tilt was fast but rough and though it seemed for a while that the Owls might finish on top they figured without the accurate shooting of J. Schrock who in the closing minutes sank two double-deckers. Many :imes the score was tied and at no time did cither, team command a large lead. The line-up: I. C. H. G. F. Pfs. Fettc, f 2 0 4 j'lynn, f 0 0 0 Porter, c 1 2 4 George, g 2 0 4 Hunt, g 2 0 4 Westinghouse Whips Duffys In Close Game The Westinghouse five, occasionally flashing the team work that won it Fayette county honors last season, was consistent long enough Wednesday night to defeat the strong Al Duffy A, C. of, McKcesport, 30-25, at the Armory. Coach Brown has called a practice -at the Armory for Friday night it 8 o'clock and wants all players to be there. BITS HERE AXD THERE Winning 21 games in a row, tie Printers copped the first half title in the City Industrial Duckpin League. The club, skippered by Joey Galasso, is too hot for the five oth;r ^ contenders and may transfer some ol its strong men to make the competition a little more even . . . Un- lontown made but two out of 14 fouls as Monesscn took* a 28-26 decision. A. J. Evcrhart could use a boy by the name of Allie Luczak who shot 10 straights the other night . . Anthony Martin, 15, of Martinsburg, W. Va., was fatally injured when a small Iron girder and some brick became dislodged and struck him on the head while he and others on the St. Joseph's High basketball team were taking a shower shortly after a practice session ... Joseph A. Lcrew, Connellsvillc grid official, is the prin- . cipal speaker tonight at Fayette City Methodist Episcopal Church when the football team of that borough will be honored . . . There's going to be a red hot race in Section 4. Uniontown and Charleroi, favorites, lost in the first round to Monessen and Donora, 28-26, and 45-34, respectively ... Poss Parsons, chairman of the National A. A. U. basketball committee, says the cage sport has become a major item because of the widespread increase in intcrsectional games, clarification and standanza- V- tion of rules which have followed as a matter of course and the "leveling- off" process which now finds every section of the country boasting powerful tciims . . . Harry Keck, Sun- Tele sports editor says "Joey Spcigal (of Uniontown) is not ranked among the leading lightweights but he can lick most of them so it doesn't make any difference" ... Maynard "Dinny" ^. Manners, veteran hockey player and ' coach, died in a Pittsburgh hospital. H2 had charge of the Yellow Jacketts and the Hornets. Recreation Cenfer Clinches Volleyball Title in Second Half The Connellsville Recreation Center clinched the second half of the WPA Volleyball League when it took over the Medicals in two out of three sets. The center won the first after a hot tussle, 15-13. The guardsmen came back in the second, 15-13, with the final finding the recreation boys drubbing the Medicals, 15-4. Freddy Miller and Pete Caretti stood out for the winning combination while "Doc" Leighty and George Cole played their usual brilliant games for the Medicals. Next week's games will wind up the volleyball · loop. The line-ups: Recreation Center--Caretti, Marzano, Thome, F. Miller, Robinson and Miskinis.

McCoy, substitute guard, bagged the most points, being the only member of the team to count twice from the Held. He also Jallicd a foul goal. The line-up: Colters G. r, rts.
