Juco Storms Back to Beat Pratt In a rough and sometimes ragged basketball contest here last night, the Garden City Broncbusters staged a strong second half to turn back the Pratt Junior College Beavers 77-68. The victory boosted the Broncbusters to a 6-3 record in Jayhawk Juco conference Western Division play, and was Pratt's fifth loss against two conference wins. A trio of Broncbusters led the Garden City scoring, with Willie Shine, Bill Morgan and John O'Connell each hitting for 17 points. For Pratt, it was high-scoring Maurice White who connected for 27 points and who showed fans here why he is rated as one of the nation's top Juco cagers. He was leading the Jayhawk Conference scoring going into last night's game. Pratt dominated both the nets and backboards in the first half to build up a 35-25 half-time lead. The Busters couldn't find the range in that first half — neither in shooting or in passing. The game was nearly two mn- utcs old before any scoring was done. Vcrnon Wing put the visitors out in front with an outside shot. Garden's first scoring came on a Irce throw by Willie Shine. Then Shine followed a minute later with a field goal to give the hosts a 3-2 advantage. sports slate SATl'KUAY Bowling: Tlilrd of four weekends of first annual Endurance Classic at Lcoli Lanes.

TigerCoolidg* Tik Not Ployed SHALLOW WATER — Last night's scheduled game between Shallow Water High School and Coolidge wag called off due to the bad weather. Shallow Water Coach Harold Burnett said the gam* may be rescheduled when the schools get together for a Western Ark Valley League session in Deertield thU afternoon. This would have been the last league game for both team*. Shallow Water is riding a 14 league record, while Kendall, which beat Manter last night, moved out to the league lead with a 9-1 record. Shallow Water's only .league, taw .vu, to But from that point on through the rest of the half, it was Pratt's show. White was deadly on outside shots, with Wing also hitting a high percentage. With less than 7 minutes left on the clock, Pratt had moved out to a 27-15 lead, which turned out to be the Beavers' widest margin of the game. It was big John O'Connell who sparked the Broncbusters in that second half. He scored twice from down under in the first minute of the second stanza to narrow the gap, then Smith connected with two straight to pull Garden to within five points, 33-38, with only slightly over three minutes gone. O'Connell then hit again to make it 35-38 but a free toss and field bucket by Wing kept Pratt in command. Morgan was fouled while shooting, and not only connected on the field goal but added another point from the charity line and it was 41-38 with 16 minutes left Scoring see-sawed for the next four minutes, and with 11:50 showing on the clock, Shine hit from outside to make it a new ballgame at 47-all. Two minutes Ut«r, after Pratt went out ahead on White's charity toss, Richard Smith hit a one-hander to put Garden hi the lead, 49-48, for the first time since the opening minutes. From then on the Broncbusters were never topped, but the playing got rough. Big Walter Gaskin, the Beavers' post man, fouled out with 8:59 on the clock, but Butch Schmink's dead eye from the charity line kept Pratt in the game. He evened it up at 54-all with four straight tosses within less than a minute. Then O'Connell, who showed good under-the-basket play, tipped in a free' throw toss by Shine and moved the Busters out ahead for good. With 4:02 on the clock, Wing left via the foul route'and Martin connected on two charity tries to put Garden ahead 67-60. Then Shine, O'Connell, Smith and Martin, again at the free throw line, iced the game by putting Garden out to a 77-63 margin. Shine fouled out with 1:50 left, and with 50 seconds left in the game, Coach Dale Meadors cleared his bench. Garden's big Bill Morgan and Pratt's Mike Shane, an Elkhart boy who had come off Uie bench, were involved in some fist play with 11 minutes left. Pratt assistant coach Gene Cox had to force Shane ail the way out the north door of the gym to keep him away from Morgan. Garden hit only 9 of 28 from the field the first half, but came back to connect with 21 of 38 in the second frame and end up with a 45 per cent from the field. Pratt had 15 of 41 in the first half, and 12 of 30 in the second for a 3| per cent. Garden City lost the ball 18 times, to Pratt's 12. Rebounds showed Pratt with a 47-37 edge.
