The Fayetlevillo Bulldogs, experiencing one of Iheir poorest nights of the season in shooting from the field, managed lo come from behind in the last minute and 10 seconds to defeat a tall and talenled Texarkana quinlcl, 3635, lasl night in a second round game of the state basketball tournament. Five games were playe u yesterday with the Fayettevi!le-Texar- kana lilt offering the Jans the most for their money. Tuckerman pulled the biggest upset of the tournament yesterday afternoon in downing Johes- boro, 60-53. Both teams employed the fast break with Tuckerman having the best of il in hitting the baskel. Tuckerman hil on 2fi of 69 attempts and Jonesbo-o connected on 24 of SI. · Roy Burgess, a tall idd for Tuckerman, hit for 22 points in pacing his team to the victory. And the winner's 1'rank Healli, a small edition of perpetual motion, added a lot of finesse in handling the ball as his team scooted past the Hurricane. Jonesboro came equipped cheerleaders.

Judsor, Avey, a lanky center with a goo., eye for the hoop, made 73 points (high for the meet so f a r ) in leading the Clinton team into the quarterfinals. Bobby Joe Hickinjbotham led the losing McGehee f've with 18 points. Also played yesterday afternoon was a" game matching Monticello 'arid DeWitt. Monticello, after trail- ins almost the entire game, broke up a DeWitt stall and made the winning basket with only 40 seconds remainln£. At that DeWitt got a fast break going with about ,15 seconds left and had a man open under the basket. But the pass was a little wild and the ball got away -'rom DeWitt's Bill Hasco and went out of bounds. Dale Lassiter. a tall center for Monticello, led his team to the win "with 20 points. The Bulldogs opened the night session and have more than they 'could handle in the 1 rough and obviously ready Texarkana Razorbacks. The Southwestern powerhouse, highly rated as a title contender this year, threw up a defense that stopped Fayetteville's shifty livesome from going " down the middle and kept the outside men off balance on their long shots. The Bulldogs weir unable throughout the game to find a sure way of counting points for themselves. If a play worked once that was about the end of 'it as the Kazorbacks showed exceptional defensive abilities Bass Trumbo, 6-1, was in charge of handling Texarkana's bis Clint Otwell, a 0-0 lad with a deadly shot. Trumbo battled the big boy all over (he floor and although he let Otwell count 17 points he caused-Texarkana to lose the ball many times in attempting to g the ball into the pivot.

The Mountaineers, led by jumping Guy Cable, downed Clinton, 51-38. this-morning to bec.ome the first team to enter the semi-final round. Clinton, chiefly on the work of its big center Jud Avey, who captured Ihe attention of. the fans by his sportsmanship and g o o d humor, stayed in the ball game for a little more than two quarters. But Avey sprained his ankle midway in the third quarter and Ihereaftcr was unable to guard Rogers' Cable effectively and Hogers pulled away. In the opening moments of the game it was apparent that the contesl would be decided on the outcome of the Individual battle between Cable and Avey. The first quarter ended with Clinton ahead, 14-6. Cable bad four o f ; Rogers six points and Avey had I seven of his team's 14 points. ' Rogers rallied in the second pc- ·iod to cut the lead to one point-5-14--with four minutes elapWd. Jut Clinlon again found the scor- ng pattern to pull into a H2-HI ead at the half. Early in the third quarter Rogers put on a spurt hat was sparked by some bril- ianl shooting O n the part of Bnd- ly.Bloomfield, small Mountaineer uard. About that time Avey fell nd twisted his ankle in a scram- le for the ball and his effective- ess was cut drastically from then on, although he stayed in the game.

But Fayetleville rallied, throwing: up a passing defense that stopped Ihe Texarkana offense cold. Ray Barnes, who engaged in a running individual battle with Texarkaiia's J. W. Evers during the game, sank a foul shot to get things' moving for Fayelteville. Billy Parker hooked a shol in from the side and Russ McConnell made a free throw to cut Ihe margin to 30-34 with three minutes left. Parker again found the range from just in front n the hoop, and after Tcxarkana's James Hul- scy made good a free throw McConnell came back to toss in an 18-fool sol-shot to pull Fayelte- villc to within one point.

All winter long, ever since Eddie Stanky was named Cardinal manager and followed il up by announcing he would be a sironi; candidate for Schiendicnsl's second base job. baseball fans have been wondering how Red would reacl. Rumors, all unconfirmed, flew thick and fast that (a) Schoendienst was on the trading block; (b) Schoendienst woulrljjo : switched to first, lliird, shortstop or outfield; (c) Schoenriienst had rebelled against playing anywhere but second. Untrue, of course, all of it. Here is what happened: One of Ihc firsl things Slanky did after taking over the reins of the Redbirds was to pay Schoendienst a personal visit in St. Louis. Among other things Eddie told the All-Slar second seeker he was going to compele with him for the second base job. If Eddie's Hit- v-//:.
