Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Eight teams seek honors in two-day event Thumfmr. Dxtmber 2, 1971 THE IfTHMIDOf HCRAID 13 All is ready for LCI hoop tournament By LLOYD YAHAGISIII Herald Sports Writer "We should do well." That's what coach Hugh Tam- blyn of the Lethbridge Colle- giate Institute Rams had to say about his club's chances of win- ning their own fifth annual in- vitational basketball tourna- ment this weekend. The Rams, who have finished runner ups twice in the tour- ney's four year existence, will challenge seven top learns from Alberta, Saskatchewan and nor- thern Montana for top honors Friday and Saturday. Tamblyn felt that their sfiff- est competition would be the defending champion Kremlin Foxes from northern Montana and the Edmonton Ross Shep- pard Thunderbirds. This season the Foxes joined forces with the Gilford High School and will be known as Lhe Kremlin K-G Cougars. Tamblyn had good reason to tear the K-G Cougars since head coach Bob Parsley vvill bring back all of last year's squad along with three players from Gilford who made the starting line-up this season. Meanwhile, the Thunderbirds are definitely considered as Dne of the favorites during the day affair. 4 TALL STORY Coach Don Melanychuk will bring along five boys that range from 6' 2" to 6' 4" and not give way to their oppo- sition in the height depart- ment. The Catholic Central Cougars will be the only other Leth- bridge entry besides the host Rams. The Cougars have worked hard preparing for the coming tourney and coach Dean Dahl and his chargers could be hap- pily rewarded. "We practice hard three limes a week for about two and a half hours and will be in shape to use a running commented Dahl. Dahl feels his club has a good chance to take it all and that their toughest competitors ivoiild be the K-G Cougars and the Thunderbirds. "Tile Rams could also come up big said Dahl when asked about the host school's L'hances. "There could be many sur- prises duriijg the two days and any team can win this early in the added Dahl. Dahl also released his start- ers for Uie tourney opener with reterai.s John Dudas, Calvin Poirier, Lyle Gallant and Peter Sikora leading the way along rtth rookie Bohdcn Mychalsiuk. The three time winn i n g champion Raymond Cornels are the final Southern Alberta "A" Boy's Basketball League com- petitors and will be out to re- gain their title they lost last rear. Coach Bob Gibb didn't com- ment on team's chances in win- since they have been the Cal- gary representatives in pro- vincial competition six out of eight years. Coach Gary Deman will bring a team consisting of veterans ami should be top contenders this year. Meanwhile, there is no fur- ther informal ion on the War- riors at this time, but they will definitely attend the two-day affair. The LCI tourney officials leased the draw for the first day of action Friday. Catholic Central Cougars will meet head on with the Ross Shcppard Thunderbirds in the touniey opener at four o'clock while the defending champion Kremlin Gilford will exchange shots with the St. Francis Browns at p.m. The Raymond Comets will follow at tangling with the Sheldon Williams Spart a n s while the host Rams will con- clude F r i d a y' s proceedings against the Henry Wise Wood Warriors at 9 p.m. Teunun tiles praise his moves Football for thinkers says Unitas BALTIMORE (AP) Johnny Unites is as surprising in his mental approach to the game of football as his play selection is to the opposition. While coaches, players, re- porters and broadcasters ex- toll the value of emotion in the contact sport, the Balti- more Colts' quarterback takes a divergent view. "Football is a thinking man's game, not an emotional game despite what some peo- ple (Julias says. "As far as J'm concerned, when you're emotional, you don't think well." Unitas, clearheaded and cool, directed an astonishing 37-14 victory over Oakland Raiders last Sunday as he made the moves of a chess master in disecting the Haid- ers' defence. For his generalship, Unitas was selected as The Asso- ciated Press Offensive Player ANDY CAPP IT'S THE MAINTENANCE WOULDN'T "5TANO FOR THAT, MATE Cavaliers hot, in second spot By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cleveland Cavaliers, pulling within a game of idle first-place Baltimore Bullets in the Central Division, reeled off their fifth consecutive victory Wednesday night as Charlie Davis came off the bench to pump in 11 fourth- while Rick Roberson hauled down 18 rebounds.

The NFL's weekly statistics, released today, show Larry Csonka of Miami Dolphins lead- ing the American Conference with 878 yards in 160 carries. Tlie National Conference leader is John Brockington, Green Bay Packers' sensational rookie, with 874 yards in 161 at- tempts, followed by Steve Owens of Detroit Lions, who has liigKcd the ball 200 limes for 870 yards. With three games remaining, the only player with a chance of overtaking the lop trio is Floyd Little of Denver Broncos, the AFC runner-up with 833 yards in 213 carries.

Paul Wai-field, the veteran Miami end who once played for Calgary Stampcders of the CFL, and Otis Taylor of Kansas City Chiefs lead the receivers in yards gained with 861 apiece. Miami quarterback Bob Griese threw his 18th and 19th touchdown passes of the season against Chicago Bears Monday to maintain his position as the AFC's leading passer and team-mate Garo Ypremian kicked 10 points for a confer- ence-leading total of 98. Warfield did not score in the Dolphins' 34-3 rout of the Bears but continue to lead the NFL in touchdowns with 11, two more than Owens. he moves us on I lie ground, too. He's the, master." The start against Oakland was only thy second of the season for Unitas, who under- went surgery in April to re- pair a torn Achilles tendon. It was the latest in a long line of injuries for Lhe SB- year-old veteran who is ill his 16th NFL season. Once again, he recuperated more quickly than expected. "John is a unique physical specimen in that said trainer Eddie Block, who then ticked off the various in- juries Unitas has sustained: "A punctured lung, broken ribs, a severe 'tennis broken nose, a knee operation, severe confusion of the right shoulder, and a great deal of etcetera." "According to medical aver- Block said, "it takes six months to recover from the Achilles operation. John was ready a month ahead of time." Unitas who had been writ- ten off once he sat out the season with arm not look particularly impressive while being used sparingly early this year. But he contended all he needed was more playing time to "get the general feel of the game, to recognize things more readily. "It's a case of reading and reacting, and you can't do it unless you're in a game. You still have to play In slay sharp, even after 16 years."
