He did uniform and made a few practice shots, but it was readily apparent that he would not be able to go in game scrimmage against the Blue Devils. Tankersly has been mentioned as All-State team material and this fan agrees and we are of the opinion that he is a "shoo in" for all CIC Team. This brings to mind the conversation with an Alex school official who related that Eric was an orphan and that he was living with relatives. Last summer, Tankersly turning 17 years old, went to the Alexandria City officials and asked for a job. He was told that all jobs, were taken except there was ah opening on the trash and cleanup crews. Young "Tankersly eagerly accepted the job, never missed a day's work all summer and expressed gratitude for being permitted to have the summer job. Eric makes good . grades and would like to go to college. C-0 Tipton High School Reserve Basketball Coach Tim Renie is the guest columnist today and we thank him for the fine analysis of the reserve teaching position. . Tim Renie's opinions are as follows: = I feel that there are three main aspects to the job of a reserve basketball coach. These three aspects are:. 1) Duties toward the head coach andvar- i sity team, 2) Learning situation from practice arrangements, 3) Live game coaching experience. The responsibilities toward the head coach and varsity team begin with the playing of boys which both coaches feel_will be playing in the future. Many head and .reserve coaches disagree violently on players and this disagreement can be seen by the team members, reflecting itself in their performances during the games. There must be a degree of agreement between the coaches, with the reserve coach respecting the final judgment of the var- . sity coach; otherwise, there will be no harmony within the basketball program. The reserve coach must watch the time closely before the varsity game begins, during half-time, and afterwards, since warm-ups, appointments or bus schedules may not be uppermost in the head coach's mind at the time. Also very important is the observation of players during the varsity game. A boy may "be getting tired or may have gotten injured slightly and when the head coach is engrossed in the game as a whole, he may not notice the individual player; the reserve coach must call the head coach's attention to these needs. Up-to-the-minute knowledge on the score, team fouls, player fouls, and time outs, is a must for the reserve coach, because the head coach may call for this information af any time. If a team does not have a trainer, taking care of injured players is also the job of a reserve coach. The Devil players and coaches are fortunate this year, however, to have a fine trainer, Steve Craig, who handles these injuries. Observing the arrangements of practice sessions conducted by the varsity coach is most valuable. The reserve coach watches and asks why certain things are done or not done. He gives ideas and also receives instructions for practice schedules. The various drills and techniques carried out in the practice represent a combined effort of both coaches. Sometimes the reserve coach will take an individual boy aside to help him with some aspect of his game that might require special attention while the practice session goes on. The actual experience of game coaching is the third aspect. The reserve coach and team should STRIVE .to set an attitude or pace of excitement and enthusr iasm that will carry over from their game to the varsity game. The bead coach gives some tips, but generally leaves the actual coaching of the reserve game to the reserve coach. After the varsity game, the two coaches analyze the two games together. The reserve coach tries to play as many boys as possible, still trying to win the games. He (Continued on page ten) By United Press International Purdue's -Big fen basketball title hopes were jolted Tuesday night by Ohio State, 69-67, while Indiana remained in contention by besting Michigan State, 71-70, in a pair of chffhangers in which the winners-beat the home court jinx. The loss dropped Purdue from a second-place tie to fourth place at 4-2 while Indiana was tied for fifth at 3-2. A tip-in by Luke Witte with 39 seconds left and a pair of free throws by Mark Minor and David Merchant gave OSU the narrow win at Purdue in a game that was close most of the way.

Marquette Sparkles By United Press International . It was fun time for Marquette and Villanova Tuesday night.

Joby Wright converted two fouls shots with 24 seconds remaining; to give Indiana its victory over Michigan State. Wright, who scored 18 points, was fouled underneath the basket by Bill Kilgore. A last" second shot by State's Pat Miller rimmed the basket. Greg Starrick and L. C. Brasfleld scored .22 points each as Southern Illinois beat Wisconsin and Julius Erving had .24 points and 16 rebounds Larry Weatherford's fielder tied the game at 65-all before Witte broke the final tie. Bob Ford led Purdue with 23 points, and Bill Franklin added 19 for the Boilers who entertain league leader Michigan Saturday. Joby Wright's pair of free- throws with 24 seconds to go were the difference in Indiana's victory. The Hoosiers blew a 12-point lead in the second half and saw the Spartans take a 68-67 lead before George McGinnis canned a pair of free throws. Then Pat Millerhit for MSU," setting" the state for Wright's game-winning tosses after he was fouled by Bill Kilgore.

' Q Desert Classiic Gets Underway By JOE SARGIS UPI Sports Writer , PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI)—No one' with the exception of Joe Carr remembers the Bob Hope Desert Classic, which starts today over four desert courses, better than Tom Shaw, the surprise leader on the PGA money winning list this year. It was five years ago that . Carr and Shaw, winner- of the Crosby and Hawaiian this year for almost $70,000, were driving to the Hope Classic when they were sideswiped near Millbrae, Calif. Carr, who. was . driving, suffered minor injuries but Shaw hurt his back and there was some doubt at the time that he would, ever play golf again. But Shaw, who makes his home in Milwaukie, .Ore., came' back and now is the hottest player on the PGA tour. In the $140,000 Hope, a90-hole marathon complete with four rounds of play with amateurs, Shaw starts out at La Quinta Country Club. . Arnold Palmer, who had putting problems in the Hawaiian, also starts at La Quinta along with 1970 Player of the Year -Billy Casper, Phoenix Open champ Miller Barber and 1970 money winner Lee Trevino. Indian Wells, Tamarisk and Bermuda. Dunes ar^the other Hope courses. Competing are 136 pros and 136 amateur teams of three players each. The amateurs stay together, playing with a different pro each day and wind up after 72 holes. The low 70 and ties among the pros go the final round with the winner cut in. for $28,000 from the total pot of $140,000. Only Bobby Lunn, winner of the Los Angeles Open, and George Archer, who took the San Diego crown, are among the top 10 money winners missing from the Hope field. Also absent is Jack Nicklaus, who is resting with his family this week in keeping with his self-imposed schedule of taking off every third week. Also starting today and running for 54 holes is the satellite Hope of Tomorrow, which rewrds the winner with $2,400 and use of anew car for three years.
