You can t stand around against them or Burn Trinity a match up zone was troublesome for the eagles who shot Well in spurts but were not consistent from the outside. A we had one of our worst nights shooting from the outside a Newton said a but even so i thought we would come Back in the second half and make a Gamp of it. We just could t Stop Trinity inside Trinity forced several turnovers with its full court press but the bulldogs also had their share of turnovers against the eagles. A we might have been a Little tight in the first Hiatt added a we were playing before our biggest Homo crowd of the year a Hiatt had Praise for Forward Gene Hutchins who h i t several Long jumpers a t crucial times Center Ricky Foster Forward Carson ewings and guards Jack Coltrane and Steve Hurley. A Gene had a real Good night and Ricky did a great Job rebounding. Its hard to single out any one boy though because they All played the bulldog Boss noted that his team put some movement into its zone defense against the eagles and he was pleased with the result. A we had the idea All you had to do to play zone defense was to stand around a he said a but Randleman picked up passing lanes on us All night and gave us a lot of trouble. Tonight we moved More and matched up a Little looking ahead to tuesdays match Between the two unbeaten teams both have 6-0 league records Hiatt noted a a it la take our Best game of the year to win. West has a tremendous ewings the Center o f Trinity a inside game led ail scorers Friday with 19 Points. Hutchens bombed for 16 and Foster picked up 13 Points and a Bushel of rebounds.

Allen Jay played a Good first half and a Fine fourth period. However that third period was murder in that stanza. Gibsonville pumped in 20 Points while limiting the Jaybird to Only four. This led the yellow jackets to a 72-55 Piedmont 2a conference Victory Friday night. A we picked up the Tempo in the second half a commented Eddie Fth Nahum the yellow jackets head coach. A we came out fast scored quickly and played great defense i think this was the turning Point of the Ball he was exactly right. His club reeled off the first seven Points of that period to extent its two Point halftime advantage to a commanding nine Point Lead with 4 26 to go in the third period. A we put on More pressure causing More said Flinchum. A this was a big boost for four Quick turnovers of the zone press enabled the visitors to shoot up to that Lead. Doug Foust paced the spurt that put the game out of reach in the second half. He popped in six of 13 Field attempts in the second segment of the contest. The team hit 14 of 36 from the floor in the second half for a 39 per cent clip. Elijah Marshall poured in nine Points in the rally. Rebounding was also a big Factor in the outcome of the contest. The first half broke close Gibsonville holding a 16-15 Edge. But in that next 16 minute Span the yellow jackets snatched Down 26 missed shots at the Home teams 17. The final game account was 42-32. Gibsonville. A i thought we went to the boards real Well in the second praised the jacket Mentor a we May be Small but we can sure their play on the defensive boards was fantastic As the Jaybird got Only ten shots in the third period. Turnovers were also a determining aspect of the game. Allen Jay made 29 errors 16 coming in the second half. Gibsonville on the other hand turned the Ball Over Only to and nine times respectively. The encounter opened up very slow at the Start. The Home team was fairly aughtry displays basketball Talent Lexington Ricky aughtry proved himself last fall As an outstanding football player but up until Friday night aughtry had been a sub in the Thomasville basketball line up. Friday night though the 6-1 200-Pounder pumped in 18 Points t0 Lead the bulldogs to a 59-50 Victory Over South Piedmont conference foe Lexington. Aughtry put in a variety of shots but mostly it was from underneath the Basket where he did his damage a a i never have been worried about Ricky a offence a commented Thomasville coach Mike Allred it was on defense that he needed to show More Hustle. A Donald mock did an outstanding Job on defense for us. Too. He is the kind of player who often goes unnoticed because he is so smooth but he is so Allred said. During the first half Thomasville held the Lead most of the time with Lexington leading Only one Short time 16-15 Early in the second Quarter. The jackets stayed within five Points of the bulldogs until aughtry hit his fourth Field goal of the first half to make the score 25-18, that a where the first half ended. The second half started with a bang for the bulldogs As they erased what was seemingly a third Quarter Jinx Arl boosted the Lead to 35-23, the widest margin of the game. From that Point on Allred switched his cagers from the usual Man to Man defense to a zone and that forced Lexington to play the bulldogs game the jackets did Cut the Lead to seven Points on two occasions but that was As close As they could come a i thought we had a Good game without Cotton in there Cotton has been suspended the boys did exactly what i wanted them to do.

The Western Alamance warriors were on the Warpath All the Way instead of scalps it was hide Tiger hide. The warriors could have Ridden Back to the Teepee after the first half. By then it was Over. But they danced on to the tune of 77-48. Until 1 55 remained in the first half there was a Ball game in those last 95, Western scored seven Points to turn a 30-30 tie into a seven Point halftime Lead the second half was about As interesting As watching turtles race. Western ripped Ragsdale apart by heating the spartans handle Randleman 49-38 Randleman in what would Best be described a a Quot Quot cd game Central Davidson overcame some of the Rocky areas to Down Randleman 49-38 Friday night. The spartans did not get a Field goal in the first period but managed to pull within one Point of Randleman tigers by intermission. Spartan Mike easter paved the Way in the third period accurate from the floor and jumped out to a Smail five Point Lead 9-4. The jackets retaliated and rushed Back to knot the game at 10-All. At the end of a ragged and rough first period the visitors held a 14-10 marginal Lead. The teams warmed up a bit in the second period. The Jaybird were better Able to contain the jackets. In that period the Home town boys hit on eight of 12 Field shots for 66 6 per cent. A it was a real rugged first half for both explained Flinchum. A a we stood around too much we did no to shoot Well rebound effectively or handle the Ball with any accuracy. We did no to penetrate on offence As much As we should have. This is one thing we did in the second half that helped us Streak out to the the yellow jackets now 8-4 on the year 2-0 in the conference face the Southern Guilford indians next week in a big conference tilt. Southern has lost on conference game already and they will be out to get even for the Loop Lead.
