6-C THK Afcttnw. Tex»s, Ttmrsfe.v MwmU|, Jumry Z7,Iflt Wildcat Words By JAMES NORMAN FRESHMEN COLLEGIATE basketball talent galore will be on the ACC campus Feb. 4-5 for the first SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT.

The INDIANS from Arkansas State loom as the tournament favorite. Tribe coach JOHN ROSE admits he probably has his best frosh crop ever. Freshman Tourney Tough I can certainly testify that ASU is rugged. The young Warriors whipped a good Phillips JC team in the prelim game to the ACC-ASU v a r s i t y contest Monday night, scoring more than NX) points in doing so. The Tribe is led by hot- s h o o t i n g guard DON SCA1FE and rugged postman GARY SCOTT. Scaife, a real smoothie on the court, is averaging 25.5 points a game. Scott, who stands 6-9 and weighs 245, is getting 18.6 points and 13.7 rebounds a game. ACC's frosh, led by 6-7 ANDREW PRINCE, should be ASU's biggest challenge. Coach GARNIE HATCH was proud of the way WILLIE CALVERT rose to the occasion against Arkansas State's outstanding big men. Willie scored over 6-9 senior veteran JOHN BELCHER and pulled down 14 rebounds. Freshman vaulter DAVID HOWARD of Dallas Samuell was a pleasant surprise to Coach BILL McCLURE in the Albuquerque I n d o o r meet this past weekend. He recorded a personal best of 14-8% and barely missed at 15-3. Howard won the Class AAAA state title in high school at 14-6. McClure also had praise for first-year man JIM . CRAWFORD, who ran a 49.5 mile relay leg indoors. Me- Clure says Crawford and sophomores BARRY HARPER and DEE WITHERSPOON are making big progress as quartermilers. It's Harper's first try at college track. He played freshman basketball for the Wildcats. McClure is Just back from a meeting of the OLYMPIC COMMITTEE in DENVER, where the Olympic coaches talked over possible sites for the OLYMPIC TRIALS. ACC will have 13 individuals entered in the OKLAHOMA CITY INDOOR INVITATIONAL Saturday night.

"Arkansas State is already 2-0 in the conference and I know how tough it is on the road. Lamar has been improving fast and Trinity certainly won't be easy. I games." Hatch expect two rough thought Arkansas State looked better than he'd ever seen them. "They whipped us in all departments. I just don't understand how they lost five games," he said. "Willie Calvert played a real fine game for us," added Hatch. "But otherwise, we didn't do so well. Arkansas State defensed us pretty good." Calvert turned in one of his best games of the year with 21 points and 14 rebounds. . . .and he did it against the best competition he has faced. . . .like 6-9 John Belcher, 6-9 Steve Brooks and 6-10% Lonne Webber. "We've got a lot of work to do before Saturday," said Hatch. "We were going great for awhile but were slowed by Arkansas State. We've just got to put it all together again." "But our kids are competitors and I feel like we'll be ready for Trinity and Lamar." WILDCAT CAGE STATS FGM FGA Pet. FTM FTA Pet. Reb. PtS.
