STARTING POINT Pampa, Odessa Clash Saturday For Trip To State Tournament By KfcO bally Jfews Sports fritter JPampa's Harvesters and Odessa's Bronchos lock horns Saturday at 8 p.m. in a battle of unbeaten teams. The game, to be played In Harvester Field House, will decide the regional championship, and the winner will go to .the slate, tournament in Austin. March 8- t t (irts.ssa ira» « «»• tailing streak of 29 games, all this year. Pampa has won 41 in a row — 28 this season and 13 last year. The Harvesters, defending slats champions, will b» shooting for their sixth trip to the state tournament in seven years. The Harvesters have won three state championships under Coach Clifton McNeely. In 1953, '5-1, and '38. Mo.Neely's teams have won an even 300 games. The short but potent Bronchos appear to be the major obstacle between the Harvesters and a fourth state title. The two teams, on paper, are about as equal as they rolild be, but the homft court shoutcf give Pampa an Advantage. The Harvesters have not lost ai home since the spring of l§5f. Shooting Percentages Both teams have a. great offense, *. fine defense, balance ftmang the starters, outstanding rebounding ability, and a. tremendous shooting percentage. Both Odessa and Pampa won handily over their bi-district opponents. The Harvesters walloped Wichita Falls" Tuesday night. 573?: and the Bronchos Ihumped El Paso Bowie, 68-55. Over the full season, Odessa hm outscored its opponents 2032 to 1531, an average of 70 to 53. The Harvesters have outscored their opponents 1877 to 1351, an average of 66 to 49. From the floor, the Harvesters have oulshot the Bronchos, percentage-wise, 50.8 to 46.5, b ti t most of Odessa's shots were from the outside. From the free throw line Pampa has the edge, 71.3 to 68.7. All starter* Mil 2fm Rvfiry starter on b'oth teams fs Above the 200 mark in scoring. Odessa's left sibrers, Jack White and foon Brownleee, are ahead of Pampa's number one and two men, Coyle VVinborn and Mack Lay ne. Through In* regular season. While scored 559 points and Brownlee 413. Winborn tallied 481 and Layne 378. While, Brownlee, and Winborn are all - stale candidales. VVinborn and Brownlee are considered the most valuable men on their respective teams. Both are great all-around ball players, as well as good scorers. Brownlefi Is the field general of his tsam. Winborn is considered one of the best players ever produced by Pampa. Parnpa Is Taller The Harvesters have a three Inch iuight advantage over the Bronchos, averaging 6-3 to Odessa's 6-0, but the Bronchos have given away height many limes this season and still controlled the "backboards. .In rebounding, the learns appear to be as equal as in other departments. Three men ftti each team have snagged more then 200 off the board.?. The offense and defense of both teams are aim'lar, with alight variations. Both are deadly on the fast break, but both <:av\ also work the ball in for a shot if ner- fissary. Both use primarily a zone defense. Their main difference is that Ode.isa shoots mostly jump and set shots from outside, while Pampa fire.s from both outside and under the basket, with equal effectiveness. Both teams use their reserves very sparingly, but both have a couple of very capable substitutes. For the Bronchos, they are Audis Cox, 8-9, who has scored 80 points; and Larry Glast, 5-8, who has scored 44. For the Harvester.*, it, is ,loe Timms, 5-11. who has tallied 78 points; and Phillip Gist. 5-11, who has netted 64.
