Whatever, the victory kept the Warriors tied for the number one spot in the Mississippi Valley Conference standings with a 3-6 record (3-2, over all). Clinton is 0-3 in the Valley and 0-5 for all games. "There were s*me bright spots,” King, the Wash c§ach, offered. "Most af thase were aff the bench "Bob Drown went in and got 16 points and eight rebounds and Bob Stewart played well coming off the bench.” Then King switched the praise to some of his starters, like Curt Milroy, Darrell Hobbs, Pete Seyfer and Bob King. Milroy scored IO points, all in the first half, while Hobbs, Wash’s leading scorer for the season, was in foul trouble most of the night and managed only two points. Seyfer hit nine and King 15, 13 after intermission "Milray was playing with a sprained thumb,” cantiuued King. "Hobbs did same goad passing in the second half . . . Seyfer did well at bath ends af the coart and played a goad floor game . . . King’s scaring In the second half was a big boast. ” Turnovers hindered both clubs in the early going before Wash got in gear and snapped a 9-9 tie with six straight points. The second quarter probably settled the issue as the Warriors outscored the River Kings 16-4 for a 35-19 advantage at intermission (Tinton finished with 26 errors to Wash’s 20 But the most remarkable statistic (Wash’s) was a 43-9 spread in board work.

After the cage transpiring.** in the LaSalle gym Friday night, LaSalle coach Duane Kramer was quick to agree. Ta be sere, the unbeaten lancers stretched their record to U with a (4-54 win, but they had all snrts of problems in shaking oft a pesky Lins Mar challenge. The game figured to be a breeze for LaSalle. After all, the Lancers are ranked number one in the latest UPI 1A-2A cage poll, but Unn-Mar had other ideas and after overcoming a miserable start, turned the game into a sizzler. “Linn-Mar is much, much better than 0-4,” breathed a relieved Kramer afterward. "They hustle all the way and tonight made things happen. We git a great game out of Mark Loeffler. but otherwise, our guys inst stood around and watched too much. The nice thing is we got through a performance like this and still won.” Although 6-6 Paul Schen-kelberg dumped in 23 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, it was Loeffler who came with some clutch scoring (12 points) and outstanding floor play (three blocked shots). Dave Zipperer added 18 for the Lancers. Moore was pleased, but didn’t leave the gym without beefs. "I was extremely satisfied with our shooting,” he explained. "We outscored them from the field by five goals (2528) and still lost by ten points. "We’ve lost four times and haven’t been outshot yet and tonight LaSalle shot 31 free throws and we had seven. Is, or is not, that a discrepency9” he questioned "But LaSalle has a great team, they move the bali and have fine balance.” LaSaile had aa 18-18 lead at the first quarter aud had opened a comfortable 58-38 margin beading into the final eight minutes, before LJan-Mar’s Dong Zingula and Dan Hartuag combined    for    14 points ajd fired a Lion rally. It got as close as 58-58 with I: 52 remaining Two clutch buckets by Dave Zipperer in the final two minutes kept Linn Mar at bay, however.
