CHICKS VS. PINE BLUFfi (!!!) AT 7:30 Zebras in By ED HAYES Sports Editor Pine Bluff's Zebras, who have won more games on the road this year than they have in their own fieldhouse, are programmed to baffle with the Blylheville High Chickasaws here tonight at 7:30. There's a B game at 6 o'clock. Tliis is also Grade School Basketball Night. Central and Fair-view are to play a 10-minute exhibition between halves of the main event, with players from all the other teams, Sudbury, Lange, Armorel, Burdette and Gosnell getting special invitations as guests of BHS. The league is sponsored by Blytheville YMCA. All league members are asked to enter the gym at the northeast, gate. * * * Blytheville currently is a half-step behind North Little Rock at the top of the Class AAA-Eastern standings. The Northsiders' overtime win over Little Rock Hall Tuesday night advanced their record to 8-1. Blytheville is 7-1. The Chickasaws were defeated in North Littie Rock Friday night and when NLR followed with the Tuesday win, the Blytheville boys slipped from the top for the first time this season. Pine Bluff is one step removed from the cellar. The Zebras, however, have been involved in a number of Alton Barnes, near misses, such as the 6256 overtime loss to Blytheville early to January. * * * BIytheville's Dwight Williams considers the Zebras , and Elgie Goss (Courier NCWI Photo) as tough as any opponent on this year's schedule, mainly because of a 6'6, mobile center named Alton Barnes. Williams doesn't hunt for Town adjectives or superlatives when describing Barnes. All he says is this: "Barnes scored 24 points against us last time." Two fret throws by Barnes forced the extra period. He's been one of the best free- flip artists in the state this winter. Other probable starters for Elgie Gflss's Z's are 6"! Rick Marshall, S'll Billy Bush, S'10 Rick Ragans and 5'U Tod Dalby. Plus Larry Holcomb, John Searles, Johnny Simmons and 6'4 Joe Boeving. Goss has been using eight boys, regularly. * * * In the first game last month, BIytheville's 6'8 center Walt Hampton was held to only one field goal—and it came in th« overtime. The big shooter for Blytheville against the Zebras was 5'8 guard Bill Peterson with 23 points. It was the first full game he played this year. He and S'll Aubrey Bell trade starting assignments. The forwards are 6'3 Ron Wilson and 6'3 Don Gaines; and the other starting guard is S'll Stan Williams. Mike Guillot is a valuable reserve. BIytheville's record in all games is 15-S. Pine Bluff is 6-11, following the 78-63 loss —at home—to Hot Springs. The Zebras are 4-5 on the road. Tuesday night the Chickasaws have Greene County Tech—at home where they have only lost once this season. Nice Job BIytheville's seventh grade basketball team completed its 1966-67 schedule yesterday aftirndOn with a 35-26 triumph at Gosnell. Theo James' crew h«d a 10-1 season. The only loss was to Leachville, a team they later beat twice. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiii IRA YOUNG: 'Worst Ever MUSIAL SIGNS INFIELDERS Stan at Bat Again By ED SCHUYLER JR.

At a press conference announcing formation of the American Basketball Association Thursday, George Mikan, former star with the old Minneapolis Lakers who is commissioner of the league, said he expected a player war. "We would be stupid not to ask players if they are not tied down," Mikan said. "You have to respect contractual obligations, but if there is a player without a contract, we invite him to contact us." » * * Mikan said Wilt Chamberlain, star center of the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketbll Assocition, had not been contacted. But Mikan added, "We hope his position is such that he can join us. We would like to have Wilt, Oscar Robertson and any players like that who are availble." The league plans to operate two, five-team divisions with New York, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Ind., Minneapolis and New Orleans in the Eastern Division and Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Oakland and Anaheim, Calif., in the West. "Sorry, lorry, sorry ..." "Worst any of my boyi ever played hi thy 18 years « a coach ..." "They flayed like they were running In mud . .." These were just a few of the scathing comments off tH« disappointed lips of Ira Young after his Harrison High basketball Dragons were defeated here last night 71-41 by Helena. * * * Alvin Clay sprayed 11 points and John Davis 10 for the Dragons in the losing Triple A cause. "Our boys weren't jumping, weren't moving. Just a stalemate, in other words. I know they can play better ... arid I hope they do it tonight at Marion." It's another Triple A battle. The juniors are on the card also. They lost last night to Helena 52-34. Johnny Riggons was the Blytheville show with 18 points. * * * Does the Dragon coach think his boys will rebound tonight at Marion? Replied the veteran Young: "All I ask is they play good ball, win, lose or draw. If they hustle, O.K. If they don't, they'll hear from me.
