GALVESTON — Bill Engle doesn't expect much this year from his Ball High Tors. Ke car-'t,-he says, looking forlornly at the crop he lost via graduation, particularly Sherman McPhee. the 12-4A scoring champ, r.nd Johnny McEldowney, both presently members of Baylor's freshmen squad. depend mostly on the tandem ior DAG\NOOD,WAKE UP.'

TO P1E&ES WITHOUT „ COMPASSION. GORDO And he's more anxious to talk about Brazosport and "Flash" Walker's amazing club than his own, which includes only two re- urning lettermen. Nevertheless," Galveston figures o surprise some of 12-AAAA's earns which figure to beat the Tors two games running. Not blessed 'with great height, nor with particular experience, Ball High has been performing very well for a have-not club, particularly on the work of lettermen Walter M c R e y nolds and Frank Howard and newcomer, junior Walter Syers. Sers hit 82 points from outside n a four-game stretch, set a hree-game scoring record of 72 mints at the Brazosport tournament and averaged 16 points per game in the early season. Syers lit 22,19 and 31 points in successive games at Brazosport where the Tors won third place, and he threatened the four-game scoring mark of the remarkable Clear Creek ace, Benny Lennox. Howard has been hitting at a 13- point per game clip while Mc- leynolds averaged 10 points in the opening non-title clashes of the season. Howard and McReynolds, oo, have been strong for the Tors under the boards. So things, don't look at bleak as Sngle contends, although, as he says, the Tors' early season per- ormance isn't one which inspires a man to do hand springs. Seven games deep in the non- conference schedule, Engle said: 'We'll find out what kind of team ve have after our next two games ,gainst Aldine and Jesse Jones." Ball High lost both those games, and Ehgle naturally, said: •What did I tell you?" But the th|ng that stands out as importantly as the losses is the fact that neiher of these clubs, both running strong in their respective conferences, did thorough job of beating the Tors. Another thing is the good shooting percentages the Tors have been hanging up so early in the year. They've hit 37, 40 and 42 percent of their shots on occasion and threaten to be as accurate as anybody'around the loop. While Engle doesn't have much height in his top five boys, outside of Howard's 6-foot-4 inch frame, he has a couple' of juniors fresh out of the B squad camp who might turn out to be valuable to him in this department Walter Lisbony is a G-foot-3 inch center and Carl Hagglund, a 6- foot-3 forward. Engle decided on his offense early in December. 'We'll run a little bit of everything," he laughed, "the tandem post, and single and double posts.' The Tors can be expected to their offense although this could change if Engle finds a secure combination in either of the other attacks. Ball High carries only nine boys on its varsity lineup this season, although Engle will have large B squad to draw upon vhcn he needs help. A noticeable ack among the top four prospects o move up to the varsity, however, is height Top prospects for varsity jobs refore the end of the season include: Fred Hasselmeier, a sophomore center; Richard Rubin, a Moot forward; George Gonzalez, i—9, and Jerry Suhler, 5—10. 3oth Gonzales and Suhler are [uards and all four boys are soph- notes. Engle, now in his fourth season at Ball, figures Brazosport will >e a runaway winner of the 12— iA race "unless stay with them," Pasadena can and he picks the" Eagles for a second-place finish. Galena Park, Engle says, ought to run third with South Houston, Smiley and Texas City battling for fourth. Himself and Baytown, defending 12—4A champion, Engle says should wind up in the cellar. But those dubs that look for Galveston to be a pushover may have to revise their thinking when they get a look at the Syers-Mc- *eynolds-Howard combination in action for the first time. Showing Wed.
