Lubbock Morning Avalanche T c c u K. y\ r -E: CON/1PL-ET-E - Page 6 Saturday, February 21, 1942 Ltibbock, Texas Raiders Turn On Steam In Second Half lo Come From Behind And Clinch Second Place In League By COLLIER PARRI5 Avalanche Sports Editor Texas Tech's cag-ers turned on the old college try, after trailing by ten points early in the second half, and in the last fifteen minutes scored 37 points to defeat the toughest team they've met on the home court all season, the Arizona Bulldogs from Tempe, 61 to 52, and establish a new scoring record for themselves this season. Elvis Erwin, Tech forward and the team's leading scorer, failed to can a single point in the first half, which saw Tech trailing, 22-25, but he started pivoting and shooting from a forest of towering Tempe arms, sacked seven field "oals and a free throw in the sec->j ond half to support the steady play of Byron Gilbreath and Garland Head, and pull the Red Raiders out of a tough spot. The rapid scoring in the second half, added to their 22 points in the first period, gave the Raiders a total of five points more than they had scored in any Conference game to date, and three more than they had scored all season. Their best previous count was 58 points, against Baylor university in the Oklahoma City tournament. Best conference mark had been 56 points, against the title defending Texas Miners. Clinches Second Place Last night's victory was important from two other standpoints: It provided revenge for one of the only two defeats suffered by the Red Raiders this season, and it clinched second place in .the Border conference standings. A rousing, rowdy game that had the students and cash customers on their feet most of the last half, the visiting coaches and supporters screaming constantly for "justice," and the officials in a heavy sweat —that was last night's show, best basketball show of the season here so far, at the Tech gymnasium. While the visitors on the bench lost, griped to high Heaven about the officiating, at' times almost provoking verbal arguments along the sideline, the records bring out that the Arizona team drew only nine personal fouls, compared to 16 called against the ."home" team. Texas Tech lost two star players, • Garland Head and Norman Volz, via the personal foul route, while the Bulldogs lost one, Chut McNabb. Jones Leads Scoring Loss of McNabb, however, was important to the Bulldog cause. After he came out in the second half, the Red Raiders found their ways to the goal less potently blocked, and they went to town! Volz and Head were, of course, important to the Tech cause, although Head stayed in the game until about two minutes remained. He had counted seven field goals. Volz, one of the cleverest floor- men in recent Tech basketball history, canned five shots from scrimmage and played a very vital part in Tech's defense. Most of his shots were from some distance away. The white haired boy of the game, however, was slender Gerald Jones, six-foot, four-inch center with an uncanny ability to hit the basket with a one-handed, ^over-hand shot irom nearly anywhere on the court. He made no less than 21 points, 15 of them in the first half. Nick Johnson, towering forward, bucketed a dozen points, and Tom O'Neil, the - team captain, besides playing a very efficient game at guard, four free shots and a couple from scrimmage.

The Texas Longhorns gave the Arkansas Razorbacks a battle for 35 minutes tonight, but in the final five the Porkers moved away and won. their eighth Southwest conference victory in nine starts, 42 to 34. With Clayton Wynne, star guard, among the spectators with crutches and Gordon Carpenter a victim of four personal fouls, it looked gloomy for the Razorbacks when their lead was only 36 to 34 with five minutes to go. But at this point O'Neal Adams, , high-point performer with 15, looped two field goals and the desperate Longhorns fouled R. C. Pitts twice. He dropped in both charity tosses.

The game rocked on like that for the first half, Tech never catching up until a few seconds before the period ended when field goals by Head and Volz, the latter a very long one, tied the count at 22-all. Jones made a field goal and McNabb a free shot to take a 25-22 lead at half-time. Soon after the second half started, Johnson and Jones gave Tempe a 29-22 lead, and after Erwin had scored his first goal of the evening, two scrimmage shots and a free goal put the Bulldogs ahead, 34-24, and the Tech cause seemed Turn On Sleam But Erwin and Gilbreath scored two quickies, then Gabe Gilley and Gilbreath counted.

Tempe got its 52nd point with a free shot, and Gilbreath made a pretty play after taking the ball under the basket, to score Tech's final field goal.

Higbe To Be Disciplined "Proper disciplinary action will be taken in Higbe's case," he warned. "It is one thing for a player to stay away from camp when he is not signed and it is an entirely different matter for him to sign a contract in which he agrees to report for training at a time and place specified by the club and then not do it. MacPhail said the sort of penalty imposed on Higbe would depend on "how long it takes him to see the light." hopes for'a Southwest conference basketball title. The Owls tomorrow night entertain the tail-end Southern Methodists. Trxas Christian forced a deliberate break on the Owls in the first half and it took two baskets in the -last three minutes by Bill Tom Gloss, who scored 10 of his 22 points in this period, to give the Brannon boys a 17-14 lead at the intermission. By GAYLE TALSOT 3 Associated Press Sports Writ«r T NEW YORK, Feb. 20.—If Coach Clark Shaughnessy has his way, he will have between 500 and 1,000 boys out for football practice next fall, "giving them the best training in the world as fighting men." Now coaching at Stanford, Shaughnessy has been mentioned in connection with the vacant head coach job at Yale but he declined to comment on that today. "Wherever I'm coaching," said the noted maestro of the "T" formation, "I want to feel that I'm doing something for my country. So far as I'm concerned, football a = an exhibition right now is very unimportant. Fewer Physical Failures "The shame is that it hasn't been possible to give all our young men football training. There woulc have been a wonderful difference in the results of pur draft boarc physical examinations.

A boy with even one year of football training will make a better soldier than one who hasn' had it. "This coming term I'm going to CLARK SHAUGHNESSY i'care of the many football players, I I'll guarantee every one of them will get hard training and will be | a potentially better soldier.

Each of them might take over a squad and in that way develop leadership. War Bigger Than Football "Sure, it will cut into the regulars' practice. Maybe .we wouldn't have quite as good a team as we would have had otherwise. Bui what does that amount to if we're taking a lot of 17 and 13-year-olc kids and making alert, confident physical specimens out of them?

By -WHITNEY MARTIN Wide World Sports Columnist NEW YORK, Feb'. 20: —'We wrote a little story about the major about three years ago. The war seemed quite far away then, and the reason for the story was just the reason for any story .on a sports figure who excels in his particular line. The major is John W. Hession of New Haven, Conn., and there is an added reason for reviving his story now, as his specialty is .very much concerned with our national defense. He's a marksman, and he i can flick the dust off a butterfly's wings at 1,000 yards. The amazing feats of Captain Arthur W. Wermuth in the Phillipine fighting bring out the overlooked importance of the individual shooter in the war a' tanks and planes and artillery, and Major Hession is doing his bit to make the country rifle-conscious.
