The biggest question mark is Penn State. Everyone is anxious to see if the Nittany Lions can bounce back from that fiasco with Tennessee.

If Penn State doesn't look respectable against Texas, our likeable friend Joe Paterno may bury himself in the Cotton Bowl. Regardless of how the Nittany Lions fare, Paterno need-not hide. In six years as head coach, Paterno has a 52-11-1 record for a winning percentage of .825, the best among active football coaches.

Tom Mc-Dermott's jumper from the side gave GL its final -lead, 10-8, before Cash's layup knotted the score again and then Cash's free throw put McKeesport ahead for keeps. Behind 19-17 with less than a minute left in the first period, the Wildcats lost their composure trying to stop the fast-breaking Tigers and trailed 24-17 going Into the second period. The Tigers pulled away in the second period thanks to a nine-point effort by Banks and used that final minute of the half to up their lead from 39-27 to 43-27 at intermission. A. 20-13 Tiger scoring edge made it 6340 after three periods and McKeesport's starters left the game in the hands of some sharp-shooting reserves.

CAT TALES When the McKeesport team comes on the court for its pre-game shooting, the first thing the Tigers do is take a warmup lap. Greater Latrobe's top scorer Bob Mueseler did not play because of a back injury. Coach Barry Brautigam said he expects Mueseler to return to practice Monday. The Wildcats, who shot a poor 38 per cent (24 of 70), played a zone defense the first half but switched to a roan-to-man in the second half. McKeesjwrt, which shot 45 per cent (38 of 85), used a man-to-man defense all the way.
