Three Southern Alberta clubs advance By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer All three Southern Alberta teams won their opening- round games as the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute's Eighth Annual In- vitational Basketball Tourna- ment got underway Friday. The host LCI Rams made a few adjustments at halftime and outscored Regina's Thorn Collegiate Trojans 36-22 in the final two quarters to take a 54- 42 decision in the last contest of the evening. Earlier, Winston Churchill Bulldogs edged Saskatoon Walter Murray Marauders 43- 39, and Cardston Cougars dumped Sir Winston Churchill of Calgary 62-49. In the other first-round game, Edmonton Bonnie Doon Lancers whipped Invermere Lakers 57-43. Friday's results sent Cardston up against Winston Churchill in one semi-final to- day at noon, while the Rams were scheduled to tip-off with Bonnie Ooon in the other semi-final encounter at n.m The two winners meet in the championship at the LCI gym- nasium tonight at 9 p.m., following the third place contest at 7 30. The much bigger Rams had trouble with their pattern offense in the early going, and with both clubs shooting poor- ly from the field, it was two minutes until the first basket was scored. As a matter of fact, the en- tire first quarter was a night- mare for coaches and fans alike. It was not until there were 41 seconds remaining that the Trojans scored their first two points to make the score 8-2. The two clubs traded baskets throughout most of the second quarter, but a half- court squeeze gave the Rams some trouble late in the half, and the Trojans swept into a 20-18 lead going into the dress- ing room. However, in the second half, the Rams began passing the ball much quicker, and their size began to tell on the boards Gary Sinclair hit three quick baskets from the out- side to lift the Rams into a 31- 24 lead. The Trojan guards gave coach Jim Whitelaw's boys some trouble with their penetration, but the Rams kept on plugging away and gradually built up their lead. Mike Sheen's 10-footer gave the Rams a 49-40 lead with remaining, and Sinclair's three-point play half a minute later sewed it up for the hosts. Mark Baldry's 30-foot two- hander at the buzzer was just icing on the cake. Steady Mike Steed finished the game with 14 points for the Rams, while Sinclair and Sheen each added 11. Lad Fogerty's inside work netted him 14 points for the. Marauders, while Doug Quest scored eight. The outstanding play of Perry Mirkovich powered the Winston Churchill Bulldogs into a commanding lead early in the game, and his clutch work in the late going saved his club from succumbing to a furious comeback by Walter Murray Marauders. Mirkovich finished the contest with 23 points, many of them on pretty 20-foot jumpers from the left corner. His play sparked the Bulldogs to a lead just five and a half minutes into the game. Despite cooling off in the second quarter the Bulldogs still led 28-18 at the half. The Marauders closed the gap to 35-31 by three-quarter time, and still trailed 43-35 with five minutes left before a full-court press began to show some results. Twice the Marauders stole the ball, but both times Mirkovich came back to pre- vent the layup, blocking a shot beautifully on one occasion, and intercepting a pass on another Barry Schmid, who along with Hank Heerze did a fine Montreal trades Fairly, Davis NEW ORLEANS (AP) Baseball's winter meetings have ended without the usual last-minute scramble to beat the trading deadline because the cutoff for inter-league swaps that came at midnight Friday was only a temporary end to trades between the leagues. When the owners approved for next March an additional inter-league trading period that their general managers had requested, the urgency for dealing disappeared.

Earlier in the day the Expos had traded aging Willie Davis to the Texas Rangers of the American League. The Montrealers picked up two rookies from the Rangers for Davis, infielder Pete Mackanin and Spokane pitcher Don Stanhouse It made the Expos the most active team in the trade mart with four deals at the meetings job on the boards, was the Bulldogs' second leading scorer with eight points. Tom Groat and Scott Barber hooped nine each for Walter Murray. The Cardston Cougars demonstrated why they may be the class of the tournament when they came up with a superlative effort against Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs. The Calgary club has won the provincial championship the last two years, and were defending champs in this tour- nament. However, the much smaller Cougars, under the direction of Tim Tollestrup, did quite a job on the boards, and used their fast break to excellent advantage all night en route to their 62-49 triumph. After an extremely cold start, Rod Beazer and Don Yuill sparked the Cougars to a 27-24 half time lead. They still led by only three at 44-41 early in the fourth quarter, but their hustle forc- ed the Bulldogs to make numerous turnovers, and the Cougars pulled away steadily in the late going Yuill wound up with a big 27 points while Beazer's steady outside shooting accounted for 22 Doug Battershill led the Bulldogs with 13 points while John Tilleman added 10 In the other first-round game, all but one of the Bon- nie Doon Lancers scored as they broke open a close game in the second half for their 57- 43 win. The Lancers led only 25-23 at halftime. Brent Burr had 10 points to lead the victors while Gordon Jenkins rimmed nine. Harry Ferguson fired in 16 for Invermere while Jack Cabel- quen chipped in with 13 In the foul shooting contests which took place at halftime of the games, duos from LCI, Invermere, Sir Winston Churchill, and Winston Churchill advanced to the semi-finals. HOOP SHOTS All of the games featured good high school basketball, but the Cardston Sir Winston Churchill game had to rank as the most exciting the Cougars really make the out- let pass in a hurry, and Tollestrup has them running the fast break beautifully they did get a break when Doug Battershill took his fourth foul late in the first half this youngster showed flashes of sheer brilliance, but couldn't put it all together Friday Mark Baldry of the Rams scored only eight points, but he set up many others with some of the pret- tiest passes you could hope to see Mirkovich can do it all for Winston Churchill coach Glen Alexander Jim Whitelaw's pattern offense makes it hard to single out any Rams it takes all five to make the thing work properly.
