Two upsets, a near miss and an easy, victory marked the quarterfinal games in the District- One Class A Basketball Tournament tt Harrison yesterday. Van Buren fell to a la.te Rogers rally, 41-M, , In an overtime; Alma topped a Green Forest team that had had title aspirations, 45-41; Harrison (kidded past Sprinfcdale by Ihe narrowest of margins, 44-42; and Fayetteviile trimmed Bentonville 53-28. , Those results set, Ihe stage-for tonight's all-important semi-final tilts. Winners of tonight's games still have to play for the Districl tille, bul both automatically qualify for a trip to the state tournament here next week, and that is the big prize, of the district, tournament. In tonight's games Alma meets Rogers- at 7:30 and Fayelteville meets Harrison at 8:45. · " The Rogers-Van Buren and Harrison-Sprihgdale games were immense crowd-pleasers as in each game the underdog fought back wilh greal last quarter' rallies. Rogers managed to Jpset its opponent, second-seeded Van Buren, but Springdale's surge fell one basket short. Fayetteviile had an easy time in its game with Benlonville, as was expected. The Tigers played · zone defense throughout the game and the Bulldogs were content to take their shots from outside, building an early lead and never allowing the TigSrsx lo threaten. Reserves played much of the final.quarter. Ray Barnes with J2, and Russ McConneU with 11, led the Fay- etteviile attack. Melvin Rising . was high for the Tigers with 10.

'Van Buren's highly favored Pointers got off to. a mis-" erable start, trailing 4-11 at the end of the first quarter But with, Breeden getting six points in the; iecond quarter the Pointers moved- ·head, 19-17, at the half. In the third quarter Van Buren' man- ·ged » 32-38 edge, and early in the last period got loose for a five-point-edge at 37-32. Then Rogers, sparked by 'its big center Guy Cable, began cutting the edge as:Van Buren players were · unable to control the ball. Van Buren also began losing men on fouls, cutting its strength. With less than 30 seconds, arid trailing by one point Rogers elected .to take the ball out of bounds, While Sex Pitchers To 6ef Exfri Workouts El _rjentro, Callf.-(J»)-Chicago going for the win father than'* tie. - However, . another foul ' was called on a Pointer player with seven, seconds left and Cable sank the thrjJW to tie the score , and ? send tMe game into overtime Four of the five Van Buren starters fouled out, along with one reserve, as the overtime period got under way.. In the extra three' minute period Rogers took the lead, had the score tied, thin went ahead to win by two. . Alma's game with^Green Forest ·Iso was an excellent one as the Airriales, after trailing for three quarters,, stagedan uphill battle for the victory. Scrapping and fighting all over the court paid off for Airedales as they scored , 14 points to Green Forest's five in the final eight minutes. Powell with 21 points, led Alma, but it was Buddy Johnson's eight points in the last period that pulled the game out of the fire.'
