PAG 1 ? EIGHT. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1938. --Basketball THE Basketball · Sportoriais ' H.' WHOBie ' ' Sports Editor ' PRAISE FOK LUCZAK - Allie Luczak, star forward o£ Con-, ncllsville _ High School's basketball team and a. brilliant football .and field events performer who stands out as one of the finest athletes to leprescnt the Orange and Black in years, comes in for some commendation from Bob Hunter, sports editor of the Greensburg Tribune. ..Hunter writes: "ConnellsviUe's Cokcrs may be rated as a 'one-man team' in Section 9 of-the W. P. I. A. L. with their attack built around Alllc Luczak but ·what coach's hcast would not be I gladdened by the acquisition of such a'playcr. ' "It has been Luczaks work that has kept the Cokers in the league race so far this season and while the Orange and Black probably will not win the sectional crown, this lanky lad has been a constant thorn in the side of all.opposition. Against Greensburg, the .toughest defensive club in the league, Allie managed to ring up 16 of his team's 21 points. In the game with Mount Pleasant Tuesday night, .all Luczak did .was to count 24 of his team's 47 points, or, better than half the total. He has been high 'scorer . in all other games so for. "The 'stop-Luczak' movement among Section 9 teams so far has been a howling failure." Luczak is being sought by a num-. ber of-colleges with Duquesne and Coker Basketeers Bow To Latrbbe in Section 9 As Luczak is Bottled Up .Pitt -reportedly being "him "to-their 'athletic 'hot" to add talent." The "Ccker ace is a high jumper and pole valuter in track and field competition and "turned" In a' mighty 'nice "season at .fullback on tho Coker grid club. He has the potentialities of a great .college player and the finest thing -about.'itall is that he.takes his bows with an appropriate and becoming nonchalance.' . " Orange and Black Fails To Stop Home Club. In Two Periods. STAR COLLECTS BUT THREE GOALS Unable to check" two scoring surges, one in the first quarter and another in the third, Connellsv'lle High School basketball quintet lost a 35-32 decision Friday night' at Latrobe in Section 9. Allie Luczak, Cokcr scoring ace, was closely guarded, as he was held to three field goals. " After a poor first quarter that found the home club climbing into a six point lead, the Cokcrs began finding the range to whittle the score to -14-13 at half time. Latrobc's Ions ^ange shots found their mark In the ·third period as"the Cokcrs" trailed once more by six counters. For a while in the final stanza it appeared that the Yough lads might finish on top but Latrobe, though outscored, tallied enough markers to stay on top." : The line-ups:.

Derry Township High scored a 44 o 36 decision over Dunbar Township t the former's floor Friday night to o into a tie for first place in Section 0. And the outcome lies in one thing --long range shooting. Derry's dis- ance artillery worked--Dunbar's idn't. It was a nip and tuck game H-oughout with the Larry Sullivan ive setting the pace from the opcn- ng whistle, holding first a three- icint edge at the quarter, four points it the haK and then seven when the hird period ended. But Lcisenring was not to be ountcd out so easily and cut loose with a passing assault that had the lomc club upset for a time and the Bruce M. Shearer boys pulled up vith a 30-30 tie.
