(Puska T1MESFOTOS) Defensive Action By ALLAN GILBERT, Jr. The Fayetteville Bulldogs suf tered -their worst defeat of the season in the finals of th estate basketball tournament, losing to Pine Bluff; 48-27. But for a half, until the st'arin of the four hard games that preceded the final contest caught up with them, the Bulldogs, were the equal of the tall and well-manned Zebras. The physical fatilgue of Fayetteville's team was, reflected in its shooting average from the field. The 'Dogs managed to connect on but 11 of 49 attempts which was the poorest mark of the season for them. Gaining the District One r u n - ner-up spot in the tournament ' Fayetteville was forced to play four teams prior to its final contest with Pine Bluff. And. as the luck of the draw determined it, three of the four teams were among the six best quintets in the 18-team field. Fayetteville opened against Lavaca, a strong champion from District Four, and exhibited a dazzling display of shooting to win, 55-36. That victory moved it opposite Texarkana. a team spearheaded by Clent Otwell, 6-5 center, and rated as a tournament favorite. The 'Dogs, with Bass Trumbo holding'down Otwell with a fine display of defensive work and rebounding, downed the Razorbac'ks, 36-35. On Friday Fayetteville met North Little Rock, the Big Six champion, in an afternoon game and by virtue of a sizzling offense tripped the Wildcats, 45-38, in a rough game that resulted in a broken arm for Larry Head, the 'Dogs' first line replacement. Friday night. Monticello, the weakest team to oppose Fayette/ ville in the tournament, fell victim to the steady shooting .and ball control of the 'Dogs. Fayetteville coasted as best it could in that game as Russ McConnell was s u f - . fering from a bruised knee, Ray | ' Barnes from blistered feet, Ken Crudup from a bruised foot, and Trumbo. and Billy Parker from bruises and bumps picked up in fighting for rebounds under both backboards. · ^ Fine Center Monticcllo's offense hinged on the scoring of-Dale Lassitcr, a 6-6 lad who.was one of the finest in r dividual players in the meet. With a day.'s rest the Bulldogs took the court against Pine Bluff Saturday-'nigrif in the battle for the stale championship. Fayettc- - ville managed to stall the Zebra offense effectively in the first quarter, going ahead 8-5. Pine Bluff made onry one field goal in the first eight minutes, that late in the period on a 12-foot push- shot by Bob Weaver. Opening the second quarter Fayetteville moved the ball well against the Pine Bluff zone and with MeConnell hitting 18 and .. 20-foot one-handers took a seven- point lead at 12-5. Pine Bluffs big Jim Reed, lanky 6-6 center, hooked in a shot. Barnes stole a pass and fast broke in for » layin. Then Pine Bluff made five quick points to pull within one at 15-16. McConnell hit another long shot but Billy Irolmes ' on the play at the right, (Puska TIMESFOTO). connected from 15-feet out to c u t ] the lead to one point again at the half.- The Bulldogs still had a little life left in the third quarter as McConnell made three points to widen his team's lead. Reed re. taliated with three points. Barnes hit a long shot, but with three minutes left in the period Jackie Mayberry pumped one in from the side and the score was tier it 23-23. From* that point on the Zebras had everything their own way Fayetteville tried, but though the spirit was willing the arms aix : . legs wouldn't cooperate. The Zebras took a 27-23 lead at end of three quarters as Reed made two more buckets. In the final period the Bulldogs hsd nothing left to fieht with Pine Bluff, in the end nf the thirc and in the first six minutes of the last quarter scored 15 points while Favettevllle failed to make i point; missing the hoop and back board on many of its shots. Reed, .the high scorer of the game with 19 points, made only five against the 'Dogs in the first half while their, defense was able to move with him. But after that Reed outmaneuvered the Bulldogs with ease to net eight points in the · third quarter and six in the fourth.
