PAGE TEN Chick Cagers Defeat Trumann In District 3 Tournament and Play Jonesboro in Semi-finals By Georfc CUrk Courier Newm Sport* Kdlior JONESBORO, Msr. 4,-The Blythevllle Chicks had a had time of It but managed to scratch out a 31-28 victory over Truman In the quarterfinals or the District Three Class A cage tourney here last nlglit. By virtue of the win the Chicks will meet the tourney-layered Joncsboro Hurricane In the semi-finals tonight. Jojiesboro moved into semlfltmi play bumping the surprisingly strong Paragould Bulldogs 55-46 in a quarter-final match last night but the Hurricane had to put on a fourth quarter rally In order to win. The Bulldogs outplayed and out-* scored Jonesboro in the last half and had things going their way until late in the third period when Sterling Cooper, their MB-re-bound arlist and sparkplug of their single pivot offense, was lost on fouls. Trailing by 14 points at halfllme, the Bulldogs pulled up on the Hurricane In the third quarter but gave way In the final period. Manila's unpredictable Lions, rated as a pre-tourney dark horse, continued their winning ways last night by ousting the Dyess Eagles in a 3937 thriller. The win was the second _BLYT11EV1U,E 'ARK.) COURIER NEWS tourney victory for the Lions and It put them In the semi-finals where they will meet Leachville tonight. Sain Stages One-Man Show I-eachvlllc's Bill Sum staged a one-man scoring show last night to lead his team lo a 64--I4 rout of the Marked Tree Indians In the other quarter-final match. Snln .set what is believed to be a tournament record by scoring 41 ol his team's 64 points against the hapless opiwsl- tion. In the Blytheville-Truman match, the Chicks were sour and had to work from behind In the first halt and then ward off two Trumann attacks in the second half of the "ivnlkathon." In spite of the close score, the same was by far the worst of the night as both teams played slow strides and fouled nwny at each other. Blythevllle lost three of ils starters and one substitute to fouls and Trumann lost two. In semi-final play tonight Manila will tangle with second-seeded Leachville at 7 o'clock and the Chicks will tackle Jonesboro at 8 Winners of tonight's games will meet in the finals tomorrow night to determine the 1943 district champions.
