Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 1, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Bounce NAIT 95-64 Kodiaks come up with solid team effort TWO FOR GREG HESS By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Basketball is a team game and that's the way the Lethbridge Community. College Kodiaks played it Fri- day night. Every Kodiak player hit the score sheet, four ran into double figures and the sub- stitutes moved in and out free- ly as the Kcdiaks overcame their toughest challenge thus far in Alberta College Athletic Conference play, downing the NAIT Ookpiks 95-64. NAIT came into the game sporting a 7-1 record in league play and an impressive for- and-against average, as well as two of the league's top scorers in Doug Carter and Rick Gawlik. Greg Hess was the top K6diak point getter with 16 but Glenn Schuler and Dave Preus were right behind him with 15 apiece. Kendon Eakett was the fourth Kodiak in dou- ble figures, hooping 12 points. "I wouldn't .want to single out an individual player as the star of this Kodiak coach Ben Brooks stated. "While four players handled the bulk of the scoring, they were being fed the ball by our backcourt men. Everybody was doing his job and everybody looked good when they were in there." In the game preceeding the men's contest the LCC Kodiettes ran their league record to 8-1 as they easily handled the NAIT Ookpikettes 75-25. The Kodiettes, aided by 18 points from Doreen Gufney and 12 each from Shelley Reeder and Shirley Yuill, completely dominated their game from start to finish Kodiettes out-passed, out- shot and out-hustled the visitors, building up a 36-10 half time lead and adding to it almost at will throughout the second stanza. While they won the game by 50 points, the score could have been higher yet had the local gals been sharper in the pass- ing department. LCC threw numerous balls away after they had teammates set, up in scoring position. Their fast breaking game looked good when it was click- ing but when the passes went bouncing harmlessly into the stands the gals looked a little less the world beaters that NAIT seemed to think they were.

"One good thing about a game like this is that we have the opportunity to utilize oar bench. It gives us the chance to work some of the new girls into our pattern of he said. Sylvia Allanl was the top point getter for NAIT with 13 points, followed by Gloria Dille and Sharon Reid with six apiece. They were the only NAIT girls to score any points. Jan Paton added 11 to the LCC cause and nine of the Kodiettes hit the scoresheet. Gurney played her best game of the year on home court for the Kodiaks and was deadly with her 25 foot jump shots from the corner. Early in the second half of the men's game coach Brooks put all his big men on the floor at once, sitting his shorter players out for approximately six minutes. "We have been gearing for a situation like this all the LCC mentor said. "It's part of the versatility of our team.

The opening round of the LCI Girl's Invitational Baksetball Tournament took place Friday night at the LCI gymnasium with the host LCI Clipper Queens coming out of the first night's action with a 48-25 victory. The defending champion Clipper Queens picked up 16 points from Barb Payne and 10 from Connie Frouws as they had little difficulty with M. E. Lazerte Voyageurs of Edmonton. Sherry Stevenson led the visitors with eight points and .Lori Holder chipped in with seven. The two clubs were involved in the final game of the night played before a half full gym. The only other Lethbridge team in the tourney, the Winston Churchill Griffins, dropped their opening contest 48-38 to the Crescent Height Chinooks of Medicine Hat. Kathy Wiley was the top gal for the Chinooks with 14 points while Pam Mann added 12. Debbie Bosch hooped 16 for the Churchill gals and Lana Simpson had 12. In the opening game of the tourney Regina Marian show- ed they will be a team to be reckoned with as they went by St. Joseph's Ceinahs 44-28. Lori Kozick fired home 17 points for the winners and Lyn Caldwell was the top Ceinah with eight. The game saw Mount Baker Trojanettes of Cranbrook win a squeaker from the Bishop Carroll Car- dinals of Calgary 51-47. Jerri Pat Armstrong hooped 13 points to lead the Cranbrook gals and Sharon Walmsley added 10 more to the cause. Vicki May had 14 and Heather Lyall 10 for the losing Calgary five. Tournament action con- tinues throughout the day with the consolation final slated for 7 p.m. and the final set for tonight. the same time take over com- plete dominance of the boards. We accomplished what we were after." In the last three minutes of the contest Brooks reversed the situation and had nobody on the floor over "We still kept the boards and still were hitting on our running series. This is the kind of team we want. It has balance right through it. There are really no five starters on this club, just 12 capable ball players." NAIT had their problems throughout the game with travelling calls and in the se- cond half fouls cost them dearly. With only two minutes gone in the final stanza Gawlik fouled out. He had 12 points at the time and was do- ing his job under the boards. Carter played a strong game for the losers, racking up a game-high 21 points and doing the job on defence. He had his problems in the travelling department though, getting the call more than any other member of his squad. John Jasiukiewicz, who had foul problems early in the game for the Kodiaks, got a lot more rest than he usually does but still came up with six points and five assists. Kendon Eakett played his usual strong two-way game for the winners. He was the fourth leading scorer with 12 points and also assisted on five other baskets. Schuler was the leading play-maker for the Kodiaks with six. Hess racked up five assists to go with his 16 points. Hess was hitting with con- sistency with his'jump shot from the top of the key and was also a standout on the boards. The Kodiaks started fast and were hitting from all angles and by the half had built a hard-earned 45-31. REBOUNDS Kodiette Shirley Yuill played with a heavily taped left elbow after dislocating it in a gymnastics accident Dave Peterson played extremely well for the Kodiaks in the short shifts he had he came up with six points and looked good defen- sively Curtis Travis played well, hitting for eight points on offence, and as usual led the Kodiak hollering on the floor Preus was hampered by foul trouble ear- ly in the first half but still played an aggressive game under the boards for the winners Eight minutes had elapsed in the second half of the Kodiette game before the NAIT gals were able to score one of the .prettiest plays of the night occurred when Travis stole the ball from an Ookpik only to have Doug Carter knock the ball out of his hands as he was go- ing in for the lay-up the play showed great hustle on both parts the win leaves the Kodiaks as the only un- defeated club In the con- ference with a 9-0 record both the Kodiaks and the Ookpiks took 89 shots from the field the LCC made 39 while NAIT hit 24 the two clubs meet again next Thurs- day in Edmonton and that is the key game of the year for the Kodiaks both coaches expressed an intense desire to win that one it could prove interesting NAIT would have been a good deal closer had Gawlick not fouled out.
