PAGE 14 SUN -DEMOCRAT, PADUCAH, KENTUCKY District tourney now involves three teams .Battle in Fomrth begin By MARK HULTMAN S-D Ass't Sports Editor At one time or another during the past season, the three boys' teams in the Fourth District have been tanked among the top 10 in the First Region. And even though two of the three have losing records, the battle for the district championship should have interesting developments. . The Fourth District, cage tourney gets underway Thursday night in the Murray State University Fieldhouse and will conclude either Friday or Saturday night in the boys' and girls' classes. y "With the consolidation of North Marshall, South Marshall and Benton Into Marshall County High School, this year's tourney features three teams instead of the usual five teams as in the past.

' -' ' " ' Marshall County Rose buys season for Cincinnati home sanies t By The Associated Press Most players agree that the dugout is hardly the ideal vantage point for the viewing of a baseball game. The view is obstructed and it's impossible to get a vendor's attention. Cincinnati's Pete Rose did something about that during the off-season: He purchased two season tickets for Reds home games. "I can complain all I want this year," Rose said, smiling, after disclosing Monday that the seats in Section 104, Row 3, Terps sure of getting bid to NCAA tourney GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) Maryland is firmly in the driver's seat as the Atlantic . Coast Conference basketball teams prepare for their annual bloodletting, otherwise known as the conference's post-season tournament. ; The Terrapins, by virtue of their regular season championship, are almost certain to advance to the NCAA championships, even if they are upset in the ACC tourney which begins here Thursday. ; . For the rest of the conference teams, however, the ACC tournament may be what it has always been: sudden death. This year, for the first time, two ACC teams appear certain to te Invited to the national playoffs. One will be the tournament champion, which will go to the Eastern Regionals in .. Providence, R.I. next week. But a second team will also , likely get a bid to the opening "round Midwest Regionals. T Even if Maryland falters in the tournament its regular season title, No. 2 . national ranking and 224 record assure its bid. Among the others, North. - Carolina State, the defending national champion, appears to be in the best shape. The Wolf-pack may als&get a bid without winning the tournament State has David Thompson, the NCAA title, a 2W record and a No. 7 national ranking. If Maryland wills, the Wolfpack appears the likely choice for the second bid, even though it would not have made the finals. Statfjs in Maryland's bracket Clemson and North Carolina virtually must win the tournament. Both are rated in the na-, tion's second ten and both have more lses than N.C State. There is also a change in the setup of the pairings in the tournament ' Murray High's girls take on Calloway County in Thursday's opener at 7 pm. The winner advances to championship game (if needed) at 7 p.m. Saturday. The first-game loser squares off against Marshall county's Lady Marshals rat 7 p.m. Friday. If the first-game loser triumphs over Marshall County, then the first-game winner is the district champion with the first-game loser going to the regional tournament as the runner-up team. If Marshall County, however, beats the first-game loser, then it will meet the first-game winner for the championship Saturday night In the boys' division, Cello-way County takes on Marshall County lrfln 8:45 game Thursday night The loser of Seats 3 and 4 now are his property. "I'm a season ticket holder." Of course, Rose will be occupied on the field when those tickets are in use, but at least he can boo or cheer when he pleases now, just like Joe Fan. "I paid 'C.C for them, brother. That's cold cash," Rose said, adding that he already had enjoyed one benefit from ihe purchase. "I got a set of Cincinnati Reds' mugs,' he said. "They ' There are likely to be hard feelings. Suppose North Carolina Of Clemson makes the fi-- nals and loses to Maryland. Either would lay claim to second place in the conference and feel that it should get the second bid, although the NCAA might give it to N.C. State instead. But if the principles themselves are figuring the angles, it doesn't show up on their pre-tournament conversation. "We've got to win the tournament. We know it will take three days of near perfect basketball to do it" says State's Norm Sloan, in a statement that could have come from the "mouths of any of the seven ACC coaches.

(APWirtpboto) TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1975 that contest takes on Murray at 8:45 Friday night If the first-game loser manages to beat Murray High, it will earn a trip to the regional tournament with the first-game loser, then a championship match will be held at 7 or 8:45 Saturday night depending on the outcome of the girls' competition. The Marshall County boys have recorded wins In six of their last seven games to reach -the .500 level at 11-11 In regular season play. " The seventh-ranked Marshals of Coach Charlie Lampley have fared well against their Fourth District opponents, winning three while losing just one. ' Marshall County upended Calloway County, 68-61, at South Marshall on Dec. 10. The Marshals dropped a 73-58 decision to Murray High on Jan. 7, but followed with a 69-62 win . over the Lakers two weeks later. They got revenge for the Murray loss with a 65-62 win over the Tigers at South Coach Bobby Toon's Bengals, last year's Fourth District and First Region champions, have struggled to a 8-12 mark and have dropped six of their last seven decisions. In addition to splitting with Marshall County, Murray was saddled with a 51-42 loss at the hands of the Lakers on Jan. 24. Ninth-ranked Calloway - County, with the First Region's biggest player in 6-8 James Wells, likewise has experienced problems this season enroute to a 10-13 slate. The Lakers have been losers in five of their last six games. Marshall County leads the other two teams in offensive averages with 73.6 points per game, good for a lOth-place showing in the region. Murray High stands 18th with a 64.1 mark and Calloway is 20th at 58.9. tickets even have Joe Morgan's autograph on them." While Rose prepared for the Reds' 1975 season at the club's Tampa, Fla., training base, baseball owners went about getting the final few autographs on contracts at a number of other training sites. Pitchers Mike Torrez and Bob Reynolds signed theirs with the Orioles at Miami, reducing to four the number of unsigned Baltimore players. Thev are catchers Andy Etche- barren and Earl Williams, sec ond baseman Bobby Grich and outfielder Don Baylor. Big first baseman Boog Powell ironed out his differences with the Cleveland Indians and signed his pact with the team that acquired him recently from the Orioles. That left only one player, outfielder Oscar . Gamble, unsigned for Frank Robinson's first season as -Tribe manager. -Gamble will not be allowed to work out with the club until he signs, a spokesman said.; One player who began work-., outs Monday was Henry Aaron, the all-time leading home run hitter who made his debut with the Milwaukee Brewers in front of two dozen reporters and photographers. T "All I have to worry about is having a big year for the club," " the 41-year-old Aaron said, adding that as Milwaukee's designated hitter he expected to bat 200 times more than last season when he hit only 20 home runs. ' f -: . A as Happy Henry Thursday Defensively, however, the Lakers are second behind Hickman County with a 59.9 mark. Murray High is ninth at 68.8 while the Marshals are in the 17th spot at 76.5.
