^^^_. *** Busters Face Grizzlies Tonight Garden City Junior College shows it basketball prowess to the home folks again tonight, this time facing a tough Western" Division Jayhawk Juco Conference foe. Coach Dale Meadora* Broncbusters take on the Grizzlies from El Dorado Juco. Garden takes a 3-2 conference record and an overall 9-8 standard into the clash. The Bustera have won four in a row and five of their last six. El Dorado is coached for the fourth season by Bill Cummins, vetern mentor formerly at Dodge City JC. The current Grizzly model is the best in years. Price-wise it will be two-for- one for sport.<; fans tonight. For the regular Juco game admission fans will also be entitled to watch the preliminary event — varsity 'wrestling between Garden City High School and Kinsley. - The Grizzlies are 3-3 in the league and 8-7 overall. They won six of their first nine this winter, but have lost four of their last six against rugged opposition. Tonight's clash is their second Garden meeting of the campaign. At El Dorado on Jan. 7 the Grizzlies rolled to a 15-point, 6550 win. But that was during Garden's "doldruns 1 ' period. Three Buster mainstays were out of Uic lineup for a trio of gumcs, missing action during Christmas vacation. Garden dropped all three of those contests — but has recovered for a standout string of performances with its regular crew back in. Mvadort ha* indicated he will go with the five regulars again tonight. Kent Martin and Willie Shina will be at tha forwards, with 6-7 Bill Morgan on the post. Guards again will be Richard Smith and Louis Horton. El Dorado probably will open with the same crew which started in the first Buster tilt. All five are Kansans. Forwards are Ted Devore (6-2 soph from Ellinwood) and Arnett Brice (6-1 frosh, Topcka). Postman is Art Brice, 6-1 Topeka frosh. Probably guards are Randall Springs (5-11 frosh, Junction City) and Jim Swingley (6-0 soph, Derby). Springs popped in 19 points in the first Garden tilt, getting 8 buckets. Swingley hit 13 points and Art Brice 14.

Kinsley was a distant third with 61 markers. sports slate In hand-to-hand combat at the meet, Garden captured four decisions and Kinsley three.
