PageS Garden City Telegram Saturday. December 3, 1977 Busters Discover Silver Lining, Breeze Past Cloud County, 94-75 By LEESTUART There's no place like borne. Every cloud has a silver lining. You name the cliche, it was appropriate Friday night as the Garden City Community College Broncbusters returned home after a three- week absence to destroy Cloud County, 94-75, before a not-so- humble crowd in the GCCC gymnasium. The victory, Garden City's second straight at home, improved the Busters' record to 4-6. They host Lamar, Colo., next Wednesday night. After 15 dreary minutes of play, Garden City discovered the silver lining in Cloud County's cloud — wide open passing lanes — and proceeded to pummel the Thunderbirds over the next 25 minutes. Goud County spurted to a 92 lead before the hosts could shed their warmups. But freshman guard Johnny Brown sparked a mini-rally that brought the Busters within 11-10 about six minutes into the game. Then Cloud County's Mack Golden went to work. The 6-3 native of Memphis, Tenn., hit every shot imaginable, including a running one-handed hook from the left side of the lane. The Thunderbirds' lead Telegram's swelled to 26-16 at the 9:26 mark before the light broke through to GCCC's eyes. The Busters began exercising more patience on offense, patience that enabled them to pierce the Cloud defense with pinpoint passes to an unguarded baseline. Freshman John Dreihling was the biggest recipient of the passing, dumping in three jumpers, while Brown owned the slickest fingers, dealing out three of his five assists. Before the overflow crowd could yell "He's open again," GCCC had clawed to a 28-28 tie with 6:11 remaining. The Busters took the lead moments later, upped it to eight points (40-32) then relaxed and saw it slip to five, 46-41, at intermission. The Busters' drive included a 22-4 spurt over only three minutes. Matters didn't change immediately after half time. The Busters relinquished an opening two-pointer to Mike Hubbard, then threw in 12 straight of their own. Dreihling hit two layupe, Tony Bytes two jumpers, and Doug Befort a chipshot off a sensational hook pass from freshman Mike Darby. Cloud County was content to let Golden gun from 20 feet for most of the rest of the game — be did plenty of damage with 24 points — while watching the Busters ease away. The lead ebbed at 18 (76-58) with about six minutes left. Darby pushed it to that point when he sank the Busters' sixth shot during a flurry under their offensive board. Coach Dave Lindsey called off the dogs with three minutes left, but the reserves were no less dynamite. They increased the edge to 92-71 before time ran out on their bid for the century barrier. "It's great to be back home," Lindsey said after the game. "We've played 10 games in 19 days and we are tired. But I think the home crowd gave us a good lift tonight." The Busters' marathon road trip included three-day stops in AmarUlo, Texas, and Dodge City, plus a physically brutal game Thursday night at Colby. "I was a little concerned since we had such a tough game with Colby last night (Thursday)," Lindsey said "Our kids were ready to sit down when they came to the bench, but we kept our intensity up and our desire up when we were out there. You always like to see that." GCCC had entered the game with 126 assists to its opponents' 48. Add 13 to the GCCC side, nine to the foes, and what do you get, coach? "We passed the ball well because we ran our offense well," he said. "We got a lot of good shots right around the bole and we put most of them in." The Busters connected on 38-74 from the field for 48 percent and 18-20 from the free throw line for a scorching 90 percent. Cloud County hit 30-62 from the floor and an equally torrid 15-18 from the stripe. Garden City was dominant on the boards, pulling down 46 rebounds to the Thunderbirds' 21. GCCC committed 25 turnovers and 23 personal fouls, Cloud 27 miscues and 22 fouls. Darby and Maxwell paced the Buster board attack with 11 and five rebounds, respectively. GCCC's scoring balance was incredible: Dreihling and Darby popped in 16 each, Bytes 14, Befort 13, Brown 11 and Kirk Hemmert 10. Maxwell added nine and Mark Murphy and Jack Carrol two apiece. Richard Norman had 14 in support of Cloud's Golden, white Dennis Habig scored 12.

The win improved Ingalls' record to 2-0, while Bazine fell to l-l. It also was a bit less nerve-wracking than the Bulldogs' season-opener, which went five overtimes with Jet more. Ingalls jumped to an 18-9 lead in the first quarter, upped it to 42-25 at intermission, then relieved all doubts with a 25-20 outburst in the third period.

Cimarron Coasts Past Ashland, 67-51 ASHLAND — Cimarron's Blue Jays spurted to a large early lead here Friday night, then coasted past Iroquois League rival Ashland, 67-51, in high school basketball action.
