FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1955 BLYTHEVIL1.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Chicks and Leachville In NEA Semi-Finals Dyess Advances; Dell And Manila Defeated JONESBORO — Blytheville's undefeated Chickasaws run up against a small but scrappy Rector team here this afternoon as play in the 8th annual Northeast Arkansas Invitational Basketball Tournament moves into the semi-final rounds. Both Blytheville and Rector moved into the semi-finals with victories yesterday. The Chicks had a comparatively easy time with Augusta winning by a 76-55 margin but Rector had trouble aplenty. Rector had to go two overtime periods to oust the Batesville Pioneers 54-52. In the second overtime, a sudden death aflair, Rector sank two free threws to win the game. In other action yesterday and last night two Mississippi County teams. Dell and Manila, were knocked out of the running while Dyess 1 Eagles continued to roll on unchecked through the B division. The Eagles of Coach Tom Parks stomped Orubbs 87-62 yesterday afternoon in a game that saw Dyess' Joe Gray fracture another scoring record. New Record Gray pushed 54 points through the nets to break the record he set the day before when he scored 38. While Gray's 54 points is the best Individual record in the entire history of the tournament. It goes on the record books only as a B division record. The A division mark was set In 1953 by Blytheville's Montroe Holland who scored 40 points against Bay. Manila's Lions didn't score a single point during the first six minutes of play and as a result they were defeated 15-65 by Jonesboro. With two minutes to go in the first quarter the Lions hit their first Held goal. But the Lions finished strong and made a game of It in the late stages, forcing Jonesboro to flght oft a stubborn last quarter attack in order to preserve victory. Bono led all the way and coasted through most of the second half In defeating Dell's Blue Devils in a first round game yesterday morning. The Bill* Devils were beaten 70-43. Dyen »». Valley View In other .games yesterday and lost night Mt. Pleasant defeated Caraway 64-35 and VaUey View blasted Ash Flat 80-63. Quarter final play was to be wrapped up this morning with two games in the B division. Nettleton was to play Cash at 9 a.m. and Mt. Pleasant wns to meet Bono at 10:30. Semi-final play was scheduled to open at 1:30 this afternoon with Dyess meeting Valley View. The Chick-Rector game followed at 2:5( with two big games scheduled for tonight.

At 9:30 tonight the winners of the Nettleton-Cash, Mt. Pleasant-Bono games will meet. The Chicks had trouble rinding the range in their game yesterday but even so, they proved entirely too much'for Augusta. Well Balanced Attack Th« Chicks wound up with another well-balanced scoring attack that saw Charles Abbott and Chuck Langston emerge high scorers with 14 point* each. Close behind was little Freddy Akers with 13 and Freddy Hodgei with 12. The real heroes of the game :hough, were the reserves. With 'our starters sitting on the bench wcause of too many personal fouls, ilytheville reserves played most of the last half and picked slack for Coach Jimmy up the Fisher, successfully protecting a 17 point lalftime margin.

The bout will give, a nationa: television audience its first look at the slick 34-year-old former welterweight and middleweight champion since he retired 30 months ago to become a song-and-dance man. Robinson, who announced he was through with ring after exhausting himself in the heat against Joej Maxim in a light heavyweight title scrap, started back up the ladder Wednesday with a six-round TKO knockout of Joe Rindone in n non- televised Detroit fight. Truman Gibson, International Boxing Club secretary, said yesterday that Robinson's new manager Joe Glaser has objected to Jones as "a little too tough for Robinson at this point." However, Gibson was emphatic, saying that "if Robinson wants to box in Chicago, it'll have to be Jan. 19 with Jones or nobody."
