High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Andrews coasts Over n. Forsyth by Paul Kutz Enterprise sports writer a we had 20 turnovers made poor passes and hat a lot of walking a said Andrews basketball coach George Force. A not Only that but we hit at All during the whole game. I believe we had around 33 or cent in the first half from the nevertheless the red raiders wore Able to take out the first string with almost three minutes left in the game and coast to their seventh non conference Victory of the season. The final score was 74-57 in favor of the raiders against visiting North Forsyth a Vikings. It was the second loss to Andrews for the Vikings and the game was nothing to brag about for Viking coach Bill Cartwright who was disgusted with his cagers performance against the ragged raiders. A they out shot us outran us out passed us a they just outplayed us a grunted Cartwright. A i did no to think anyone had a particularly Good game for us with the exception of Lim Guill. I suppose he did As Well As could be expected considering our Guill led the Vikings with 19 Points and it was the 6-3 Forward who brought North Forsyth to within la Points late in the third period for the Only Viking threat in the second half but if Andrews was doing anything right despite the gloomy analysis of coach Force it had to be unselfishness with the result of a lot of Good passes being transformed into Points. Whether the generous passing was due to the fact no one wanted to take the responsibility of missing another shot does t alter the fact that Point Man Reggie Honbarrier and wings Sammy Durham and Glenn Bethea were skilfully working the Hall for the Good shot. A i will say we were moving the Ball and ourselves a Little better a said Force reluctantly. A we had some mental lapses like we had in the Central game. Honbarrier had a pretty Good night. Bethea did t do too badly shooting Honbarrier hit the bucket for to Points but it was Betheay a Sharp shooting with Quick outside jumpers that put the Ball game away for the raiders. Bethea held scoring honors with 23 Points while Center Lee Foye contributed 18. The game was never in danger of getting away from the raiders although they led by Only three Points in the first Quarter. Andrews outscored North Forsyth every period. It was the third Quarter though that Andrews a full court press really took effect. The raiders hit for 25 Points while allowing Only 15. A they just handle the press a said Force. But you will notice we had Only four less turnovers than they did and they pressed us maybe one fourth of the time we pressed it All boils Down to the question a the raiders ready see Andrews on 4 d Andrews Bethea Honbarrier Poy Durham Lambeth Evans Washington Ivey Hilt Welch Craft Alk risen chek Dunlap n Forsyth Oft 9 5 23 guilt s 0 to Litten 8 i la lash 3 2 i Butler Brooks 2 Durham 0 poultry 0 Ellis 0 Beaver 2 Lyons 2 Thornton 0 Simmons c Ranson 0 4 i 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 i 0 i 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 get 7 s it too 000 2 0 4 3 o a 2 i 5 3 i 7 1 0 2 0 i i 0 i i 1 0 2 Coo a to totals i 12 74 total 24 9 $7 score by periods Andrews to a 2j 14�?74 n Forsyth is 14 is 12�?s7 total fouls Andrews 12, North Forsyth 12 Jayvee game andrews14 Jill ta�?7j n.
