The Rebels, who tangle with Martin High's Tigers nt 9:2R p.m. Friday after the Pampa vs. Houston Mllby 8:05 4-A opener, use their good height to every advantage, but the big one in this in. croasingly offensive minded game of basketball. That Is to simply state, the Rebs don't score much, Take their two playoff games for instance, Jefferson slipped past an equally tall team, Poly of Fort Worth, in bl-dlgtrlct, 37-32 (Pampa had 46 at the half against Odessa Saturday night). And then the Red and Blue clad warriors of Coach Arch Porter skimmed by Garland for the 5th time thlg season, before 6,000 fans last Friday night, +5 • 43. In the low-scoring Poly game, the score was only 2810 with but nine minutes left in the game, "Yeah, you might say they really get with it on defense. That's the only way they've attained such success this season," Morgan commented. The Big D scribe opined that the Rebs had only two solid college cage prospects, 6-2 forward, Dave Somerville and 8-4 center, Paul Thompson. Somerville will carry a 13.5 p«r gams scoring average into the hi* office.
