Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - March 2, 1966, Bennington, Vermont 8-Bennington Banner wednesday March 2, 19fif> sabers enter tourney wars by Tom Hughes there can be no doubt that tonight s quarterfinal basketball encounter Between Bennington Catholic and Bellows Falls set for Rutland at 7 30, will be a Attis Between the big d and the big o. The sabers Are the Best defensive club in the sol and probably in the state while Tim ryans terriers Are the most explosive offensive team around. Just prior to tuesday s final practice session before the sabers initial entry into the tournament wars a top seed eliminated the necessity of a play Down game Frank Bizzarro voiced a guarded optimism about his teams chances of a third straight win Over the terriers. A if we play our regular game we should win a Bizzarro said. A in a situation like this you know what can happen. You just Hope it won what can happen is that the Saber defense after giving up Only 40 Points a game All season will suddenly fall apart and the terrier offence which is hot cold from period to period will be hot All night. Neither possibility is Likely. Bizzarro saw the Bellows Falls Windsor play Down game which the terriers took 60-58. He had words of Praise for Frank Pencek the tall but not very Beefy terrier Center who scored a personal High of 25 Points to Pace Theryan men. Pencek kept Tough Dick Crotty one of the top scorers in the league on the Bench. Bizzarro expects that Ryan will go with Pencek who can hit from either Baseline rather than Start the More experienced Crotty. However the Saber Mentor still rates Crotty one of the toughest inside men around praising his a Good if Pencek falters the Buzzer will sound quickly and Crotty who is foul prone will appear. A Rick Kane terrier Junior sin or we by h guard is probably one of the better backcourt men in the league. Well be pressing outside to Stop him a Bizzarro commented. The other guard Dave Barry is far less trouble from the floor and the sabers plan to let him shoot gambling that he wont do the damage that Kane might. Bizzarro plans to Stop Jim Ross the sol scoring Champ with the same Maneu vers that held him under control in the two earlier meetings. Ross who likes to shoot or drive from the Corners will be faced with Billy Brooks who is faster and has an uncanny Knack of stuffing much taller opponents. The last terrier a a Hooker aumand a gets rid of the Ball quicker than anyone in be seen a Bizzarro noted. A the s a Streak Ball player who can be trouble of he s on. Playing him in close does no to help because he gets rid of the Ball too the Saber coach expects a 2-1-2 zone defense from Ryan but the champs have been a working in practice on everything possible he might this includes a version of the chs 1-2-2 zone which Ryan used in the first game against the sabers. Bizzarro notes that while Bellows Falls has used a press this year Ryan does not really have the personnel for it. Besides a your Speed up front should take care of a press. Wed actually Welcome chs scrimmage St. Joseph a of North Adams runner up to Drury in the Northern Berkshire league on monday night and Bizzarro was very satisfied with the results. A Small Quick team the saints Are much like Montpelier the team every one thought would provide the Semi final opposition for tonight a Winner. But Burlington upset the solons tuesday night 43-41, and threw the tournament into a bit of a the sabers win tonight there is plenty of time to think of the Battle with the seahorses. Asked about the Rutland Msj game Bizzarro would not make an outright prediction but said a Jim Browne has done a great Job at Msj. I think Msj is a better Ball Browne himself blames Msj a two losses to the raiders pm the fact that a Rutland just does t play poorly against dodger players support pitchers salary demands by Mil i on Richman up sports writer Vero Beach fun. Up a the world Champion los Angeles dodgers Are behind Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale too cent a the players that is not the front office. Between them Koufax and Drysdale Are asking for one million dollars spread Over three years or a pair of unprecedented contracts which break Down to $500,000 apiece. E. J. Puzzle Bavasi the executive vice president and general manager of the dodgers whose Job it is to Deal with Koufax and Drysdale claims he Isnit Overly worried because a both Are sensible still he says their joint demand is a Way out of line and adds the dodgers simply will have to Start the season without them if they done to scale Down their figure. The existing impasse puts the rest of the dodger players in a ticklish position. They can to come out in Masse in favor of the two holdouts because the brass would frown on that. And they can to very Well Knock Koufax and Drysdale because they still will have to live with the two aces when they eventually do sign. Nonetheless you Only have to speak with a dozen or so of the dodger players Here in Camp to discover they re rooting for Koufax and Drysdale All the Way. Before he even began negotiations Koufax prime concern was that his teammates might feel he was being too hogfish. Sandy can forget that fear because they re All convinced he is fighting their Battle for them. A was far As in a concerned i Hope he gets As much As he can a said Veteran Relief Ace Ron Perranoski. Salary a that goes for both of them Quot he said glancing up at Drysdale a locker which like Koufax Bas his uniform hanging there ready and waiting. A knowing Sandy the Way i do in a sure he a concerned about what the rest of us think a Perranoski went on. A i can Tell him though we re behind him too per As an afterthought Perranoski smiled and said a i Hope he shows up though. Id hate to have to pitch 162 of those games by outfielder Lou Johnson feels the same Way As Perranoski. A they deserve every Penny they re asking a he said dividing his attention Between a Turkey Sandwich and some Orange juice in the dodgers clubhouse. A i Hope they get it a Johnson said feelingly. A Only wish i was in a position to negotiate like that. Us resent what they re asking baloney. More Power to Mem both. Id love both of Mem to get what they want. And they know its not just mouthing off its from Johnson put the Container of Orange juice on the seat alongside his locker and pointed to his heart. Without a single exception every dodger player spoken to said he hoped Koufax and Drysdale got what they wanted. Even a few Miles Down the line at West Palm Beach where the Atlanta braves Are training one of their players took the stump for Koufax. A anyone of us who a resentful of what he a asking ought to have his head examined a said the player asking that his name not be mentioned. A we ought to get Down on our Knees and thank him. He a sticking his neck out for All of us. The Way i understand it he feels Why should the top baseball salary be arbitrarily set at $100,000? i know Imi never get that much or anywhere dear that but what Koufax is doing now is bound to help us like the players Bavasi is in a Sticky position too. He knows full Well what Koufax and Drysdale mean to the dodgers but at the same time he a also working for w alter of Malley and if the dodger owner wished to hand out Money head have hired a mechanical Jackpot instead of a general manager. A i done to blame Koufax and Drysdale for trying to get All they can a Bavasi said. A a that a their privilege. At the same time they have to be reasonable about it. Walter of Malley had to borrow Money to pay for the stadium. Do they expect me to go to him and ask him to borrow Money to pay the players salaries too a when Puzzle said that there Wasny to a dry Eye in the House. Tom Caron tourney results a ass i.
