The Canadian cool agreed with Bools Day and Rusty Staub, who destroyed the Dodg- ers with nine runs baited in be- tween them. Los Angeles, which slipped games back of San Fran- cisco in the West Division race, grabbed an early 3-0 lead with pitcher Don Sutlon driving in two of the runs.

By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "The Canadian national bas- ketball team needs a better training camp and more in- ternational exhibition competi- tion if this country is to pro- duce a contender in" interna- nalional competition." That, anyway. Is the opinion of Raymond's Tim Tolleslrup, a member of this year's dian squad. Tim, along with his brother Phil, just returned from the Pan-Am Games in Cali, Colom- bia, have been asked to instruct a week-long basketball clinic in Lethbridge, jointly sponsored by the Lethbridge Community College and the University of Lethbridge. Big Tim, who stands is more than capable ot handling his share of duties on the bas- ketball court aJid has proven it by earning all-star recognition this past season. Playing for the University of Lethbridge Chinooks, Tim was tabbed the top centre in the Western Canada Inter-Colle- giate Athletic Association Bas- ketball League and was rated the best centre on the national level. DISAPPOINTED Tun, one of the key figures on the Canadian team was dis- appointed with his club's per- formance against Panama in the Pan-Am Games. "We lost the killer instinct and fell back giving them loo many breaks instead of play- ing the aggressor's role." The Canadians were nicked 68-67 by Panama although they held substantial leads through- out the game. At various times, the Cana- dians held an 11-point lead, but gave way to finish on the short end of the score. On the other hand, Tim was thoroughly impressed with Cu- ba's upset victory ober the US.A. nationals. I "It was a fantastic game to watch and I have never seen a team so psychad up as the Cubans. They were an average- sized club, but could jump like antelopes. They were out to win and that's what they did." One of the big beefs the Ca- nadians had about Cali, Colom- bia was about the living condi- tions. Some blasted the cramp- ed sleeping quarters while oth- ers were irked with the lack of water available. Tim felt that Cali wasn't what the Canadians expected it to be, but he didn't really mind il after a couple of davs. "Colombia is a poor country and this should be realized. The food was fantastic, but Ihe sleeping quarters could have been a lifle better. Each room held 12 bunks and it got a little tight at times. One thing I enjoyed was the extra long beds (hey gave to the baskot- baliers. The bed itself was hard, but it helped the sore back I had at the lime." Getting water was a big prob- leir for the Canadians during their slay at Cali. "We were not allowed to fe CLOSGED ME FROM BEHINb.' THEM TCH.'TCH.'WHW ELSE CrlB'E LAD?
