rage 4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE J College Basketball Gophers to Defeat JU, McGinnis, & Co R ams Want Shot At Marquette By EldonCage .. Tribune Sports Editor FRANKFORT — Rossville's pressure packed Hornets waited until .the third quarter Thursday night to press the Clinton Prairie. Gophers into a series of errors and then stung the Gophers 70-. 42 to advance to the semi-finals in the Frankfort Sectional. Rossville had to work hard just to keep even in the first half against the ball controlling Clinton outfit and barely carr- t ies a 22-20 edge to the dressing room at the end of the first 16 •minutes. During the first half high scoring Garry Kamstra of Rossville had been held to four fielders, but in the first three minutes of the third stanza, errors by Prairie let Rossville loose for several garbage, points and'Garry Kamstra picked up 10 points in three minutes to put the victory in the Hornets nest. Garry finished with 28 tallies, his brother John Kamstra had 12 and Tom Bonebrak* 11. For Prairie Tom Smith and Tim Hitch had nine markers .each. ROSSVILLE (70) Dyer ^ Meador, C. i. Chezem Knapp, D.

Heights 1626 44 79 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana's persistent Hoosiers will be resisting the impulse to keep'one eye on what's going on at Ann Arbor between Michigan and Ohio State Saturday- to fix both eyes on the task at hand,. Northwestern in the Big Ten's televised Game- of-the-Week. Starting time is 2:08 and the Ohio State - Michigan game will be running concurrently, heightening the temptation to be diverted. ' There's no denying its importance to Indiana's title hopes. A win for the Buckeyes, coupled to a Hoosier victory over Northwestern, would tighten up the race and permit the Hoosiers, if they can win the rest of the way to slip in for a share of the crown. "Beating" Michigan was a 'must* for-us/' Coach Lou Watson summed up, "but it didn't change the situation any. We still have to win the rest, playing them one at a time, and hope that we get some help on Michigan. We can't afford a slip.'! Watson doesn't expect a let-, down from the all-out, highly emotional game the young Hoosiers won from Michigan, a situation aggravated by an earlier 101-109 triump over Northwestern at Evanston. "I don't see any reason why we shouldn't be up for Northwestern. This team has clawed itself back into the race and everyone knows we have to win every game. And they've been around enough now to know that any team in this league is capable of beating you." Biggest - encouragement from the 88-79 victory over Michigan was the emergence of Steve Downing to super-status. The 6-7 sophomore did it all with a season high 28 points, 17 rebounds, five assists and an unofficial ten blocked shots.

Frankfort Barely Edges Carrol Cougars 69-63 Cage] FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2G, \'Jl\ -o/ogy By FRED McMANE UPI Sports Writer Dick Phelps, coach of. Fordham University, wants another shot, at second-ranked Marquette, and he hopes to get it in the NCAA tournament u at Houston. Phelps, whose spirited Rams lost to Marquette, 65-80, in overtime Thursday night, indi-, cated that his club would pass up the local National Invitation Tournament for a bid to the NCAA tournament and possibly another shot at the Warriors. "I'd love to get you in Houston," Phelps said to Al McGuire, coach of Marquette, following the Warriors' exciting victory before a capacity crowd of - 19,500 at Madison Square Garden. "We've got everything (Continued on page eight) "There's no doubt but what it was his great game ever," said Watson. "If Steve' maintains that level of play, or anything close to it, we'll be in great shape for the stretch run." Downing's performance was made more obvious by comparison to this first game against Michigan. Then, coming off a back injury suffered in the game against the touring Australian team and far from peak form, he turned in only four points and nine rebounds, while Wolverine center Ken Brady wrecked the Hoosiers with 18 points and 20 rebounds. Tuesday Downing clamped down Brady to eight points and six rebounds. .Although largely unnoticed Downing has been coming on ever since. Over the last seven games he's hit at a .638 p^ce from the field, improving his defensive stature with each game. Meanwhile, George McGinnis keeps living lip Jo his pre-season notices. He vaulted back into the Big Ten scoring leadership with 33 points against the Wolverines, despite losing almost 13-mint es of play to foul problems. As matters stand, McGinnis nas an eight-point lead over Iowa's Fred Brown, 287 to 279, translated to 31.9 and 31.0 game averages. It's no secret that the Hoosier *s., br using, crunching board game is the key to success. Their 68-43 advantage over Michigan, boosting their average edge to 53.8 to 38.1 in Conference play, produced clusters of shots on the offensive board and gave them 91 shots to the Wolverines' 73. This has helped equalize the fact that Indiana has been outshot on percentage the last two games. Watson . is hoping that Joby Wright will break out of the mild slump he's been in over the last three games. Up to that time Joby had been shooting at a .524 pace, but .310 over the last three games and a ten-point per game average has dropped him to .496. His play over the last two seasons suggests it is a transitory thing and will solve itself. The Hoosiers will take a 46-37 series advantage over Northwestern into Saturday's game. . ' By EldonCage Tribune Sports Editor FRANKFORT -- Frankfort's Hot Dogs just barely escaped with- a 69-63 win over the courageous Carroll Cougars here Thursday night in the second game of the Sectional Tournament and advanced to a challenge match with the Rossville Hornets for the Clinton County prep crown. . Only clutch shooting by three Frankfort seniors, Mike Foster with 21 tallies, Rick Clark 13 and Chuck Hollis 23 kept the little Carroll County team from upsetting the Dogs. For Carroll, DarrelLMaxwell had 21 points, and three Cougars gathered nine each and they were Dale Helms, Ron Simpson and Brad Dunkin. Carroll had leads at several stages of the game and with just over a. minute to go crept within three, 64-61 before Chuck Hollis and Rick Clark administered the Coupe de Grace with fabulous shots. Frankfort now challenges Rossville for the right to reprer sent Clinton County against a Tipton County prep team for the Sectional Crown as .two Tipton County teams, Tri-Central and Tipton, match talents Friday 7 p.m. to decide which squad will try to bring the Sectional Crown to Tipton County.

They play pepper after that and run around the field a third time. At the end of the workout we run 'em foul line to foul line eight times and of course they get their normal amount of running working in the infield and outfield.

(UPI) - What they said at the first round of the PGA championship: Jack Nicklaus, first with 69 —' "It was a wild and beautiful round. This is a long and tough course and you have to scramble a lot to score well." Bob Charles, tied for second at 70 — "I didn't do anything stupid." Bob Goalby, 70 — "I made a couple of mistakes/but I didn't let it get nie. Tommy: Bolt, for example, is a great golfer, but he lets things get him." Bobby Mitchell, 70 -"The course is so long and the wind is so tough." Gene Sarazen, who played with Nicklaus —"I saw a real champion in action today."

That's how Mrs. Nila Gilcrest, a 31-year-old mother of two; says she'll handle dejected players when she becomes an assistant football coach. She still was looking for a job today after Idaho State University turned down her application to take a gridiron job at a token dollar a year. "I appreciate Mrs. Gilcrest's interest in the football pro-. . gram, and I sympathize with the women's liberation . movement, but I have decided to stick with tradition and hire, a male to fill the coaching spot," said Athletic Director Dubby Holt in announcing her rejection Thursday. Mrs. Gilcrest, a doctor's wife who doesn't look "like a defensive line coach," said she has been approached by several college athletic departments and one pro team since applying at ISU. " She said she doesn't want to move because of her husband's practice, but will consider the other offers seriously now that hometown Idaho State 1 has turned her down.
