s* WF Depend Ball Control By REfl , fcftlly News SpoM* Editor ; the Wichita Falls Coyotes, who will play the Harvesters here Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the bi-dlstrict basketball playoff, are the type of teim which has given (he Mar- Vesters the most trouble this That Is, they are., of medium • height, -ihaVe-goed hlistlle, play ft ball control game, and have a good defense, *3?h5s kind of learn, lypt- fiad by. .Palo DUro, Denton, Monterey, and Borger, haa given the ijarvestefs more trouble this ^63r than the. tall squads. ^ Perry Qoolaby's Coyotes will #&• Into Tuesday's game as underdogs, but that will be no new eseperlSncft for them. They have gone into al» most every district basketball flea- son in recent years as underdogs, and they won their district championship in three of the last six years. In Ma eight years at the helm in Wichita Falls, Goolsby ha* compiled a 145-61 record, despite the fact that he has had a rebuilding job to do almost every year. This year is no exception 16 the rule. Only one of last year's starters is back, and Wichita Falls got a late start because of the state football playoffs. Despite that, however, the Coyotes have a lt-3 season record. WlehiUt Fall* three tosi« to Denton, 80-43 and tO-62, and to Quanah, 6048. fhe Coyotes hav« since defeated Quanah, 4t-42. Quanah and Deftlon were t h « only common foes for the Coyotes and Harvester*. PampA defeated Denton, tfl-55 and «3>66, ftfld stopped Quanah 6M51 and «44. The Harvesters had their hands full with Bentoft, but had little Mil trouble with Quanah. The Coyotes and the Harvw lers are th« only teams to beat the lanky Quanah crew this year. Wichita Falls won eight straight district games, without a loss, they won over Arlington, Irving, Blrdville, and Grand Prairie twice «Ach.

They depend a lot on outside shooting. On defense, they use a shifting zone or a. fnafi-for. man. Defense is their Strongest point. Their leading scorer is 8-1 Gar- land (ttiDDft) Bailey, & itfilof who is hitting at a 20 point js*f tfaffil clip, the coyotes depend heavily on his ability to score on drives and short jump shots, and also on his outside shooting. Bailey set a school scoring ree« ord this year when'he scored 3d points In the CoyottS' 88-62 w I n over Blrdville. in addition to being a good scorer, he is A fine reboundef. Goolsby considers Ball* ey the best all-around player h« has ever coached. Descriptions of other Wichita Falls starters are as follows: GERALD PHILLIPS, a 8-8 senior, is the team's floor leader and second leading scorer. He has 8cor«d 180 points In 20" games, for a 20-polnt average. He IS an excellent clutch player, and is accurate with a running jump shot from 28 feet. ALE3LAMD ALLRED, a 0-3 senior, IS the only returnee f r o rfi last year's starting team. He is the team's top renounder, but doesn't score often. He has scored 11« points in 15 games, for a 7.7 average. AARON McDONALD, a 6-2 senior, ( I8 a fine post man and good rebo'under, who occasionally gets a tip-in. He takes up the scoring slack when Bailey Is bottled up. Me has scored 148 points, for a 7.4 average, in 30 games. WALBRiek, ft -I • I seniot-, ft|ernate» at the fifth Starting positing. He has scored 148 jjolnts in 19 games for a 7.7 av« erage. STEVE DEAL, 8-1 senior, is a great rebounder and a fine defensive man, but a weak scorer. Ha has tallied only 54 points in 19 games. He alternates with W a I- brick at the fifth starling position. In recent games, he has been th» team's best rebounder. After the top six men, Wichita Falls has practlrally no reserve Strength. The number seven and eight men are Joe Blackshear, 6-1 senior, and Richard Scott, 5 • 11 senior. They have scored a total of only 40 points, between them.

They began the contest at 1:30 p.m., after ending their first round game at about 10:30 a.m. The defeat ended Carver's hopes of becoming one of the shortest state champions in history.
