Other By Conde Sargent University PI i g h Friday night made a laughing stock of the home court advantage. The Tutors' 5-game winning streak was stopped in a 45-29 loss to visiting Hebron. University High was pathetic from the fiel'd. They managed only 10 field goals for the night in about 55 attempts. Half of these buckets were registered in the last 8 minutes of the game--when Hebron had a comfortable lead The loss was No. 5 in 11 games for University High, which played its worst contest of the year. Coach Dale Snook's outfit had won its last 2 games at home. Hebron's victory was its 10th in 12 games. Losses were to No. 3 rated Geneva and No. 5 Miiwien. Pre-game Hebron strateg may have been the result fo Uni High's downfall. Coach Al Lowe of Hebron elected to send his team int a collapsing zone defense stop Uni's Charlie Hellerich The Tutors countered b passing up Hellerick in favo of outside shots--some too fa outside --by Rich Olson, We Cooley and Ted Hempel. This trio shot often and hi very little. Cooley neve made a field goal. Hebron meanwhile was hit ting somewhat better" and built a 22-14 halftime lead The Bears worked Universit High's quick' zone for some corner shots by Rusty Russell He canned 3 straight in the second quarter. University High began press ing in the second half but Hebron continually built its lead b e c a u s e the Tutors couldn't score when they stole the ball. University High managed only 3 points in the 3rd period. Tall Denny Dondlinger was the night's top scorer with 20 points. Olson was next with 11, six in the last quarter. Hellerich, usually a 20-plus shooter, scored 10. Russell had 10 for Hebron. University High's reserves defeated Hebron 53-43. .
