16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 1, 1975 Golden Bears close iii on Victoria Short sport Pronghorns run away from Saskatchewan 93-68 By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The battle for last place at the University of Lethbridge gymnasium Friday night turn- ed out to be not much of a bat- tle after all. The U of L Pronghorns demonstrated in convincing fashion that they, at least, are a much better ballclub than their record would indicate as they trounced University of Saskatchewan Huskies 93-68. Both clubs enteredjthe con- test with only two wins to their credit in Canada West league play, but that was where the similarity ended. After playing even with the visitors in the early moments, the Pronghorns took over complete control of the game, building up a 50-23 halltime lead, and coasting to the win.

"The press worked, they hustled on the zone we just turned them inside out." If anything, Fry's com- ments understate the case. Nine minutes into the first half, the score was tied 13-13. But the Pronghorns ran off 11 unanswered points in the next three minutes and never look- ed back. Steady outside shooting by Phil Letham, and a fast break led by guards Richard Foggo and Joey Shackleford provid- ed most of the offence in the first half spurt. On defence, a full-court press that was to force 40 tur- novers over the game began bearing fruit, and a tough zone defence forced the Huskies to shoot from well outside even when they got past the press. Best testimony to the effects of the zone defence is the five-point performance of Saskatchewan 'centre Roger, Ganes. The 6'6" youngster went into the game as the league's second leading scorer with an 18.7 average, but he got free only five times all night to take shots. Letham racked up 18 points in the first half, and finished as the game's high scorer with 26. Foggo was next in line for the Pronghorns as he hooped 16 points, in addition to mak- ing several pretty passes to set up teammates; Lauren Edlund added 15 points and Joey Shackleford chipped in with 10. Carl Anderson p'aced the Huskies with 25 points while little Kim Renwick added 16. Fry was able to use all of his players extensively, and his club would undoubtedly have hit the century mark had he left the starters in the game. The locals shot an im- pressive 44% from the floor, compared with only 34% for the Huskies. On the backboards, Ganes demonstrated why he is the league's top rebounder as he pulled down 13 balls. All told, the Huskies outrebounded the Pronghorns 54-37. Phil Letham and Joey Shackleford led the locals in that department with eight each while Lauren Edlund grabbed seven. In the women's game, the Saskatchewan Huskiettes out- scored the Pronghorns. 8-0 over a three-minute period midway through the second half, breaking up a tight game and lifting the visitors to a 53- 40 victory. The locals trailed only 35-30 with 12 minutes remaining in the game, but a cold spell dropped them behind 43-30 within three minutes. Terri Duke led Saskatchewan with 18 points while Karen Kusler added 16. Debbie Yanota was tops for the Pronghorns with 10 points and Jacy Fox added eight. Elsewhere in Canada West play Friday, the race for first place tightened up a little more as the league-leading Victoria Vikings lost and the second-place Alberta Golden Bears won. In Calgary, the U of C Dinosaurs dropped Victoria 74-61 despite the Vikings' 57% shooting performance from the floor. Pat Lee paced Calgary with 19 points while Lyle Leslie added 18. Lee Emundson was tops for Victoria with 14 points.

UBC led 35-32 at the half, and held a seven-point lead before Baker made his presence felt. Baker wound up the game witli 32 points while Colin Fennel! followed with 14 and Len Davidiuk contributed 10 for the Bears. League scoring leader Steve Pettifer had 22 points for UBC while Blake Iverson hooped 21 and Ralph Turner chipped in with 18. Friday's action leaves Vic- toria still in first place with an 11-4 record. Alberta is next in line with a 9-4 record of 9-4, giving them two games in hand over Victoria. UBC and Calgary are right behind with 8-5 records. From' there, it drops to Lethbridge with 3-12, and Saskatchewan at 2-11. In women's action, league- leading UBC Thunderettes took a 54-50 decision over Alberta Pandas in Edmonton and second-place Victoria Vikettes walloped Calgary Dinnies 80-46. HOOP SHOTS Should the Pronghorns play as well as they did Friday night for the rest of the season, they could have a big effect on the final standings they play in Calgary next weekend, and travel to Edmonton for their final two games, and both of those clubs will be going down to the wire in search of first or second place and a berth in the playoffs first, however, the locals will be looking for another win tonight they play the Huskies again at p.m., following the women's en- counter at p.m.... it was a real team effort Friday night, and Roger Baldry typifies what is needed to win ballgames that way he seldom leads the team in scoring, but he has to rate at the head of the list in terms of hustle... the reserves shot ah amazing 55% from the floor Friday night Richard Chabot hit both of his shots, Tom Gruninger connected on two of three, Max Zaugg hit on half of his six attempts Gary Paynton scored twice in five attempts and Brent Burton hit a perfect one-for one.
