'THURSDAY, JANUARY 81, 1992 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NT5W8 Chicks Overpower Steele 79-39; Bees Triumph taH • | {+ | v . —^ - _ I Tribe Shows New Offense In Big Way for 13th Win STEELE, Mo.—Putting on one of their finest offensive exhibitions of the season, the Blytheville Chicks last night overpowered the Steele Bulldogs 79-39 in the feature game of a basketball doubleheader in the high school uvm here. In a preliminary game, Ely the-*- yille High School's B team finished' Wrong to conquer the Bulldog reserves ' .•es by a 67-57 count. The Chicks unveiled their new offensive look, on which (hey have been working for the past week, against the Bulldogs. They discarded their usual control style of moving the ball for the faster and more deadly fast break which has dealt them so much misery this year. The chicks' new offense, although changed only slightly from their old brand, found them fast breaking past center court and then slowing down to work a pattern. And it worked fine against the weaker Bulldogs as Hie Chicks rang up their 13th win cf the season. The Chicks scored 51 of their 79 points in the first half. The reserves took over shortly after the Intermission and finished out the last 1 16 minutes of play. Forward Joe Lynn Vowcll -and center Montroe Holland combined theij talents to account for nearly three-fourths of Blythevllle's points. Voweil led the scoring with 28 points and Holland hit for 26. Davis was high for Steele with 18. Bulldogs No Match « The Bulldogs simply were no atch for the Chicks' towering height and shooting accuracy. They fought back gamely in the last half but the odds were too great. The dead-eye shooting of Voweil from back of the free throw circle kept their defense loose and when it loosened up Holland would start hitting from the hole. And Vowel! and Holland had some assistance In the point making. Forward Wayne Burnham turned in one of his best performances, hitting the wicker for s total of 12 points. In the B game Blytheville led most of the way but they had to come from behind In the closing minutes to gain their victory. Midway In the fourth period Bteele pulled up even and passed the Chick reserves for the first time in the game. But the visitors weren't to be denied. They put on a strong closing splurge to win going away. The Chick Bees put on « fine off,ensrve snowing, too.

"We have a couple fellows who threaten to become stubborn holdouts. But Maglie is not one of them."

Bocchlcchlo said Hunt had made this offer: "He said he'd give us $250.000 and give me 50 per cent of everything." There was a catch to the acceptance, though. Bocchiccio said Walcott had a contract with the International Boxing Club, and that he will go to Coral Gables. Fla., on Saturday to talk with Jim Norris, IBC president. Must M»teh or Belter Bocchicchlo said Norris would have to match, or better, Hunt's offer to gel the fight. Harry Markson, director of box- Ing for the IBC, promptly said In New York: "We are confident Bocchicchie will fulfill his contractual agreement to fight Ezzard Charles for the heavyweight title for the IBC." Walcott has been given until Feb. 5 by the New York Boxing Commission to sign up for a title defense. It thinks he should give Charles a rematch.
